Leonard Fournette and Jamal Adams had outstanding performance last week.
Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports
LSU freshmen running back Leonard Fournette and safety Jamal Adams were featured in this weeks SEC Freshman Tracker by ESPN for their outstanding performance against Ole Miss last Saturday.


S Jamal Adams, LSU

What he did: Although he made five tackles and broke up three passes in a 10-7 win against Ole Miss, Adams once again went viral on the Web for something else entirely. As he had done against Florida's Andre Debose, Adams dramatically flopped to the ground after Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace made contact with him after a play. Once again, Adams' flop drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

What it means: Adams' flops are amusing and all, but the kid has serious game. He is one of LSU's best special teams players and is becoming a playmaker in the Tigers' nickel and dime defensive packages. He is tied for fifth on the team with 42 tackles.

RB Leonard Fournette, LSU

What he did: Fournette was unquestionably the SEC's top freshman this week, helping LSU gain an upset win over then-No. 3 Ole Miss by rushing 23 times for 113 yards (he did lose a fumble in the end zone, however), catching two passes for 41 yards and returning two kickoffs for 57 yards. He finished with 211 all-purpose yards.

What it means: This was Fournette's third game with at least 100 rushing yards and his second where he cracked the 200-yard mark in all-purpose yards. His high was 225 against Florida. The Ole Miss game pushed him past the 1,000-yard plateau in all-purpose yards this season (1,209).

Those two freshmen are only the first of many future stars from their class. The NCs are coming.

If the oline continues to open holes...he should break the LSU running back record for a freshmen. His receiving talents are underrated.

Would love for Fournette to beat Chubb in rushing yards...he has the lead, but Chubb is close.
