Week 1 Heisman HYPE Rankings

Here it is, the first weekly ranking for 2015 Heisman candidates from the Heisman HYPE model. I want to make one note: as should be expected, things move around a lot the first few weeks since the sample size for the current season is small and there is a good amount of variation in the quality of opponents.

Rank Name Position School
1 Derrick Henry RB Alabama
2 Gunner Kiel QB Cincinnati
3 Nick Chubb RB Georgia
4 Everett Golson QB Florida State
5 Cody Kessler QB USC
6 Malik Zaire QB Notre Dame
7 Connor Cook QB Michigan State
8 Dashaun Watson QB Clemson
9 Vernon Adams QB Oregon
10 Ezekiel Elliott RB Ohio State

It’s worth noting that Mike Golic’s Heisman pick, Leonard Fournette, didn’t play this week as LSU’s season opener against McNeese State was canceled due to weather. Thanks for taking a look and stay tuned for next week.
