Georgia running back D’Andre Swift has been excellent in filing the shoes of NFL backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb as the Bulldogs main tailback. Fellow backfield mate Elijah Holyfield recently left school for the NFL so Swift will get a much bigger workload in his junior season. The bulldogs still have Jake Fromm at quarterback and plenty of wide receivers to play with so Swift will definitely have his opportunities to continue being the dynamic playmaker that he already is
2018 Stats: 114 receptions, 1,258 receiving yards, 213 rushing yards, 662 kick return yards, 14 total TD’s
Purdue sophomore Rondale Moore burst onto the scene last year as a true freshman with his electrifying play bringing a new hype to the Boilermakers team. Moore averaged well over 10 yards per touch, inagine that. That’s a first down every time he touched the ball! If he can continue tearing up the Big 10 and help Purdue can win the Big 10’s western division, Rondale Moore may be able to become the program’s first Heisman triphy winner ever.
