Heisman Top 10 Week 4: Lamar Jackson’s World


Interesting tidbits from the Heisman Top 10, as the wild fluctuation customary of this time of year produced new names in the Week 4 rankings:

• Publications that ranked Greg Ward Jr. also ranked Donnel Pumphrey. Publications that spurned one spurned both. Group of Five bias is a real thing, it would seem.

• All five power conferences are represented. Yes, even the Big 12.

• Lamar Jackson is the first unanimous front-runner, per the outlets gauged for the Heisman forecast. That’s completely unsurprising.

Before diving into the Top 10, here are names ranked in at least one outlet, but that failed to make the overall forecast: Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett; Georgia running back Nick Chubb; Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer; Florida State running back Dalvin Cook; Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong.

Read on for the Week 4 Heisman Top 10.
