MVP Draft Recap: Week 1 vs. Tulsa

Let’s see how everyone did.

Man that was a fun game last week, was it not?

Well, it won’t be as fun for some of our contributors when they realize they foolheartedly picked some of the players they did for the MVP Draft.

Here’s who I am picking for the offensive leaders this week.

Oklahoma State

Offense

It’s hard to pass over the best receiver in college football. James Washington had six receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns against the hapless Tulsa defense.

Apparently it wasn’t that hard for our participants though, as not a single one of them picked Washington or Mason Rudolph. I was shocked.

So therefore, I will pick a different offensive POW. My pick is...

Justice Hill

Hill was a monster on the ground, taking 15 carries and turning them into 132 yards and a touchdown. The running game had 332 yards overall, and Hill was a huge part of that.

Defense

Tre Flowers led the team with eight tackles, but three were assisted. Sorry Tre, that’s not enough for me this week.

Without a doubt, this player was instrumental in the LB corps, and played a solid game all around.

Kenneth Edison-McGruder

Devin Lawrence Wilber/O’Colly

KEM had five tackles, including a huge sack for 11 yards. He also had an 82-yard scoop-and-score, which clinched the honor for him this week. Hear what he had to say about the play after the game.

Tulsa

Offense

Let me tell you what. Nobody is getting points from the offensive side of the Tulsa football this week. Everyone picked D’Angelo Brewer, but he carried the ball 22 times for a total of 33 yards. That’s not good. You know who didn’t do too badly though?

Corey Taylor II

The sophomore RB picked up Brewer’s slack, rushing 20 times for 111 yards and two scores. In a bad Tulsa offense, he was the lone bright spot.

Defense

Sorry guys, I try not to make it zero points for an entire team, but Craig Suits and Jesse Brubaker (our participant’s picks) combined for less tackles than this week’s winner. I sincerely hope this doesn’t happen every week, but I can’t ignore the stats. My winner is...

McKinley Whitfield

John Hoover/The Franchise

Whitfield was the only player on either team to record double-digits tackles. He had 10 tackles, three of which were for losses.

Now, let’s tally up the points.

It is a low-scoring week in the CRFF draft universe, as our drafters had a rough time predicting the top performers. That being said, Dustin got lucky, as he gets no points (unable to participate), but he isn’t in too big of a hole.

OSU: O - Justice Hill | D - Chad Whitener
TU: O - D’Angelo Brewer | D - Jesse Brubaker

Micah - 0 points

Look for the staff’s picks against South Alabama on Thursday!
