Both are killer numbers, but McCaffrey is putting up close to a hundred yards a game more than Alabama's Henry. Personally, I don't believe Henry or Fournette should be ahead of McCaffrey (in Heisman handicapping) as of early November. But we'll see how it plays out.. /peace
well Henry doesn't catch passes, throw passes, do punt returns or kickoffs or his totals would be out of site as well .. but the media sure is playing up McCaffery so I would not be surprised if he gets it ...

Gotta go with Mr all-purpose, Christian McCaffrey, who also eclipsed Barry Sanders' all-purpose yards this season.

(HOSS), if Henry doesn't do those things in real time, how do you know he would excel at them (?) Maybe the reason Henry isn't doing it all, is because he can't. Assuming a running back can throw, or competently field kicks, is a leap. Look at some running back tosses on trick plays, etc.. lots of guys throw up errant pop flies.

McCaffrey's given a wide range of tasks, because he's proven he can do it all.. Henry hasn't proven that (maybe through no fault of his own, but..) When you reference the fact that McCaffrey can do a wide range of disciplines, I think you're actually helping make McCaffrey's case, as the better player. And why wouldn't the media talk about McCaffrey, the kid just had a 461 yard game.
/peace/.

McCaffrey plays for Stanford and where do they stand in the rankings? Henry plays for the number 2 team in the nation, and he is the reason his team is number 2. Henry has played ranked opponents repeatedly and managed to rack up yards against these teams. Can we say the same for McCaffrey? No, Henry deserves this award.

Using that same criteria, Deshaun Watson deserves it more...

Nope. Clemson played 3 ranked teams with Bama playing 7.
