College Football writer Chase Goodbread of included LSU running back Derrius Guice as one of his "17 for '17: Top Heisman Trophy candidates for 2017". Here is what he had to say:

4. Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

If you only paid attention to LSU football when Leonard Fournette was healthy last year, you might not be aware that the Tigers running game was none the worse without him, or that Guice was the reason why. He managed to establish himself as one of the nation's elite backs with the window of opportunity Fournette's injuries provided, much the way Nick Chubb did in 2014 when Todd Gurley got hurt at Georgia. He finished with 1,387 yards on just 183 carries (7.6 ypc) and 15 touchdowns despite a limited role when Fournette was a go. With quarterback a perpetual question mark in Baton Rouge, if Guice doesn't contend for the Heisman, it won't be for a lack of carries.

I'd rather see Fournette come out of nowhere to shock the world and win it after a monster game against Alabama.
