If you disagree with that statement, just look at his stats from the first three games of the season:
@Mississippi State: 159 rushing yards, three TDs
vs. Auburn: 228 rushing yards, three TDs
@Syracuse: 244 rushing yards, two TDs
Just in case you weren’t keeping score (or don’t have a calculator handy), Fournette already has 631 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.

Meanwhile, his team, the LSU Tigers, are 3-0 and ranked in the top 10. The winning trend will continue if (and only if) Fournette continues to go ham on a weekly basis.
Fournette is living up to the hype and then some. As a result, he is college football’s best player, and he is always just one play away from ripping off a beastly run.
Fournette for Heisman? I think so.
Leonard Fournette being Leonard Fournette.
