2. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Total points: 40 (first-place votes: 2)
Notable: Jalen Hurts wasn't the only QB who had a monster performance in Week 2. Tagovailoa also went all-out, throwing for a career-best 444 yards in the Tide's win over South Carolina. Those 444 yards were the third most in history for Bama and included five touchdown passes for the junior QB.
3. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
Total points: 32 (first-place votes: 2)
Notable: Burrow had another strong game for the third straight week in LSU's win over Northwestern State, throwing for 373 yards and two touchdowns (and rushing for one) before he was taken out of the game during the third quarter. Burrow's passing stats are astronomical this season --- 75-of-90, 1,122 yards and 11 TDs.
9. D'Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
Total points: 1 (first-place votes: 0)
Notable: Swift ran for 76 yards on nine carries -- including one for 39 yards -- in UGA's win over Arkansas State. He also caught two passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. He leads the team with 290 yards rushing through three games this season.
