Week Six All-Video Game Numbers Team
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 Six.
QB Garrett Gilbert (Senior, SMU)
I admit I have never been a supporter of Gilbert, but I can’t deny that his almost-comeback performance against Rutgers was impressive. Gilbert finished the game with 484 passing yards and seven total touchdowns (five passing, two rushing). Coming into the game Gilbert only managed five total touchdowns through the first four games.
Honorable mention QB Marcus Mariota (Oregon)- Mariota took care of Colorado with 398 total yards and seven total touchdowns (five passing, two rushing)
RB Andre Williams (Senior, Boston College)
Williams went off against Army for 236 rushing yards and five touchdowns. That was his fourth game with 110 rushing yards or more and his second game with 200 yards or more.
RB David Fluellen (Senior, Toledo)
Fluellen remained dominant with 220 rushing yards and four touchdowns against Western Michigan. This was his fifth consecutive game with at least 110 rushing yards. He is currently tied in first for rushing touchdowns with nine and is second in rushing yards with 846.
Honorable mention RB Cameron Stingily (Northern Illinois)- With Jordan Lynch it’s easy to forget about Stingily who amounted 266 rushing yards and two touchdowns against Kent State.
WR Jeremy Johnson (Senior, SMU)
Johnson took advantage of Gilbert’s big game with 18 catches for 217 yards and three touchdowns. Last season Johnson had 679 yards and three touchdowns and this year he already has 635 yards and four touchdowns. This was his fourth game of 110 yards or more.
WR Davante Adams (Sophomore, Fresno State)
Against a weak Idaho secondary, Adams went off with 185 yards and three touchdowns off of his 16 receptions. Adams now leads all Mountain West receivers with 52 catches.
WR Allen Robinson (Junior, Penn State)
Despite a loss to Indiana, Robinson collected 173 receiving yards and two touchdowns. This was Robinson’s fourth game of 125 yards or more and his first multi-touchdown game of the season.
Honorable mention WR Chris Harper (Cal)- In a loss to Washington State, Harper managed to shine with 231 yards and a touchdown.
TE Devin Funchess (Sophomore, Michigan)
Funchess owned Minnesota with seven catches for 151 yards and a touchdown. He’s currently second on the team with 296 receiving yards.
Honorable mention TE Nick O’Leary (Florida State)- O’Leary was back in week one form with four catches for 55 yards and two touchdowns in FSU’s blowout over Maryland.
K Ryan Bustin (Junior, Texas Tech)
The Red Raider put up 18 points against Kansas with four field goals and six extra points.
Honorable mention K Ben Grogan (Oklahoma State)- Grogan recorded 15 points with four field goals and three extra points against Kansas State.
Ohio took it to Akron with eight sacks, one safety, one pick, one fumble recovery, and one defensive touchdown while only allowing three points.
Honorable mention DST Fresno State- Fresno State embarrassed Idaho recording four interceptions, six sacks, one safety, and one fumble recovery.
