Plant Your Flag: Week 11 Review
Welcome in to Plant Your Flag: Week 11 Review and what a week that was. Who saw Tom’s running back being on the losing end for Clemson and his wide receiver has mysteriously left his school!
Fear not both Tom & myself still have guys out on the field and continuing to make names for themselves heading towards the 2021 NFL draft.
QB – Justin Fields, Ohio State
Week 10: Won 49-27 Vs Rutgers
Week 11: Postponed
Fields is glorious and he continues to show just how glorious he is. This guy is really starting to state his claim for not only the Heisman trophy but also is really pushing Lawrence for the number 1 overall in the upcoming draft.
Fields put on a show against Indiana last weekend whilst keeping up his incredible completion rating which is now at 86.3% through his first 3 games. On Saturday he went 24/28 on attempts for 5 touchdowns and no interceptions and also 1 rushing touchdown on the day.
A tough test up next against number 10 ranked Indiana now the match vs Maryland was postponed but we saw what Fields did Week 9 against the previously ranked Penn State.
RB – Kylin Hill, Mississippi State
No change here, Kylin Hill has opted out and is preparing for the draft.
WR – Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State
Week 10: Won 20-18 Vs Kansas State
Week 11: Bye
Tylan Wallace unfortunately had to sit out in the close win Vs Kansas State after tweaking a muscle in the warm up. They really missed him on the day after his impressive display Vs Texas when he went for 187 yards and two scores.
Wallace now has a bye week to recuperate and hopefully be full go in the week 12 grudge match vs Oklahoma Sooners and looks to continue increasing his draft stock ahead of the 2021 draft.
TE – Kyle Pitts, Florida
Week 10: Won 44-28 Vs Georgia
Week 11: @ Arkansas
Kyle Pitts was on the receiving end of a nasty hit by Lewis Cane which put him out for the remainder of the game and resulted in the ejection of Cane. Pitts still managed 59 yards and a score before he sat out the rest of the game. It also looks like Florida will remain without Pitts this weekend.
Pitts remains the top tight end in the 2021 draft but will need to get back to full strength and out on the field as Freiermuth is breathing down his next now he is also playing.
QB – Trey Lance, North Dakota State
Just 161 days until Trey Lance is an NFL Player.
RB – Travis Etienne, Clemson
Week 10: Lost 47-40 Vs Notre Dame
Week 11: Bye
Etienne had a terrible day on paper against Notre Dame and was only able to average 1.6 yards per carry and for only 28 yards. He did still manage to come away with a score and continue his streak.
Not many people expected Notre Dame to overcome Clemson and even further expected a stat line quite like this from Etienne.
He still remains the top RB in his class but it’s very close to call and he will not want to have many more games like this with some incredible running backs breathing down his neck for the top spot.
Clemson and Etienne have a week to recover from that loss vs Notre Dame and steam roll Florida State.
WR – Tamorrion Terry, Florida State
Weird goings on at Florida State, first James Blackman opts out and then for reasons currently unknown Tamorrion Terry has left the program for good and is preparing for the NFL draft.
I for one am very intrigued to find out the reason why Tamorrion Terry has left his school. Whether we will ever find out remains to be seen.
TE – Pat Freiermuth, Penn State
Week 10: Lost 35-19 Vs Maryland
Week 11: Vs Nebraska
Penn State continues to falter and this season is looking grim for them unless they can right the ship.
Freiermuth is still to break the 100 yard mark but he came mighty close against Maryland with 91 yards on 6 receptions and continues to be one of Sean Clifford’s primary targets. He continues to make plays and state his claim as a first round talent and one of the top tight ends even if he is currently behind Kyle Pitts.
Freiermuth does not have much left to prove when it comes to his NFL stock and only something really disastrous will cause him to lose significant value although its going to take a mighty effort to overcome Pitts with the season he is having.
That being said for personal pride Freiermuth will want to ensure his season stays positive and Penn State can start picking up some wins and try to overcome a lost season.
