RB LaMichael James

Oregon, Jr.

Last week: 18 rushes for 54 yards and one TD; six receptions for 61 yards in 40-27 loss to No. 4 LSU.

Is it harsh to put him 10th? Maybe. One game can't kill a campaign, but it may take a while to make up for this one. Playing against what is likely the best defense he'll see all season, James failed to live up to the moment. It was just the third time in the 19 regular-season games he was held under 100 yards, but considering the last time we saw James he was limited to 54 yards by Auburn, that makes two spotlight games in which he's faltered. He's had his mulligan and needs to get back on track this weekend.

Next up: Saturday vs. Nevada
