After each week during the college football season I usually put together an “All-Video Game Numbers Team”. It’s a fantasy formatted team (QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DST) compiled of FBS players that just put up ridiculous stats that week, whether they’re playing Alabama or Eastern Alabama A&M. Here’s the best of Week One. QB Derek Carr (Senior, Fresno State) David’s younger brother had a huge game against Rutgers last Thursday. The senior only completed 52 passes of his 73 for 456 yards and five touchdowns to give the Bulldogs an overtime win. Last year he threw for 4,104 yards and 37 touchdowns, I’m sure he’ll set new career highs this season. Honorable mention QB Shane Carden (East Carolina)– 46/54 for 447 passing yards and five touchdowns vs. Old Dominion RB Duke Johnson (Sophomore, Miami) Duke made a fool out of FAU taking 19 carries for 186 yards and a touchdown. No player rushed for more yards this week. If he repeats his performance against Florida next week it’s slightly possible that more people will notice. RB Tevin Coleman (Sophomore, Indiana) [Insert hilarious quote from Tevin in I Love You Man] Last year Coleman had 225 rushing yards and a touchdown. In his first game this season against Indiana State he ran for 169 yards and two touchdowns. Hopefully for Indiana’s sake this isn’t a result of poor competition and Coleman can actually serve as an offensive threat in the Big 10. Honorable mention RB- No honorable mention, put up bigger numbers next week RBs! WR Paul Richardson (Junior, Colorado) Richardson took over against rival Colorado State with 10 receptions, 208 yards, and two touchdowns. Colorado hasn’t seen a strong offense in awhile and I’m sure Mike Macintyre and Buffs fans were ecstatic that QB Connor Wood had a phenomenal game and showed great chemistry with his receivers. WR Jamarcus Nelson (Junior, UAB) In an overtime loss against Troy, Nelson shined with 10 receptions for 199 yards and two touchdowns. Next week he faces LSU….. WR: Brandin Cooks (Junior, Oregon State) Despite a terrible loss to Eastern Washington, Cooks dominated while taking over Markus Wheaton’s role. Cooks caught 16 balls for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Next week he should put up big numbers once again playing a weak Hawaii secondary. Honorable mention WR Justin Hardy (East Carolina)- Hardy reeled in 16 catches for 191 yards against Old Dominion. TE Nick O’Leary (Junior, Florida State) O’Leary was the benefactor of Jameis Winston’s unbelievable performance against Pittsburgh. The tight end had 47 yards and three touchdowns. It seems like he’ll be Winston’s favorite red zone target. K Niklas Sade (Junior, NC State)- Sade was perfect against Louisiana Tech going 4/4 with a long of 45. He also made four extra points. Honorable mention K Will Oliver (Colorado)- 4/4 with a long of 52 and three extra points against CSU. DST Michigan State Michigan State destroyed Western Michigan with three interceptions, five sacks, one fumble recovery, and two defensive touchdowns. They held the Broncos to 204 total yards (193 passing, 11 rushing). Honorable mention DST Alabama- Alabama had an interception, one sack, and three defensive touchdowns against Virginia Tech. They held Logan Thomas to 59 yards. -Schotz
