FBS MVP Candidates-RB

Here are my top RB picks so far this season in the FBS

1. Kendell Hunter-Oklahoma State
Hunter has rushed for almost 158 yards per game in 2010, with 6 scores in 3 games. Don't be surprised if you see him bust the 20 TD plateau this season. Heisman dark horse here...don't count him out.

2. Daniel Thomas-Kansas State
Thomas has rushed for 157 yards this season, and is primarily responsible for the offensive side in keeping K-State at 4-0. He did step back a bit last weekend, as he was held to 75 yards by UCF, but that game was played in awful weather.

3. LaMichael James-Oregon
James didn't play in game one against New Mexico, but the Ducks didn't need him. He has been insane ever since, rushing for just under 152 yards per game with 4 scores in just 3 games of action.

4. Ronnie Hillman-San Diego State
QB Ryan Lindley gets a lot of the attention in partyville USA, but Hillman has taken a bunch of pressure off of him with some spectacular performances. Best of all, nobody had heard of him outside of the Mountain West before this season.

5. Bobby Rainey- Western Kentucky
The Hilltoppers are just absolutely awful, but imagine how much worse they would be without a start back like Rainey. Wish he was with a better team.

Honorable Mention

Bryce Beall-Houston...9 TDs so far, will keep the pressure off of young QB Terrence Broadway.
DeMarco Murray-Oklahoma...Scoring machine needs to get the ball in the 4th to kill clock.
Le'Veon Bell/Edwin Baker-Michigan State...If these guys could be morphed into
John Clay-Wisconsin...He does everything that Badgers need him to do, but rest of offense has to be better.
Adam Robinson-Iowa...It's all on him now withall of the injuries.
