STEFON DIGGS WR, MARYLAND
The five-star receiver from Olney, Md., made the Terps wait more than a week after signing day for his signature but wasted no time notching his first 100-yard game, which came on Sept. 22 against West Virginia.
DEVONTE FIELDS DE, TCU
The Horned Frogs' move to the Big 12 helped the team lure four-star recruit Fields from nearby Arlington, and he's paying immediate dividends. A starter from Week 1, he leads the Horned Frogs in tackles for loss (8½) and sacks (five).
SIMON GOINES OT, UCLA
A 6'7", 324-pound Keller, Texas, native who originally committed to the Missouri Tigers, Goines has started all four games on the right end of the line for a Bruins offense currently averaging 243.4 yards on the ground.
TODD GURLEY RB, GEORGIA
A Tarboro, N.C., native, Gurley produced a 100-yard kick return and a 55-yard rushing touchdown in his debut against Buffalo. Filling the void left by Isaiah Crowell's dismissal from the team, Gurley leads the Dawgs with 107.2 yards per game.
SHAQ THOMPSON CB, WASHINGTON
As the starting nickelback, Thompson's 20 tackles rank third for the Huskies' much-improved defense. Originally from Sacramento, he returned home last week and had seven tackles (including one for a loss) in a 17--13 upset of No. 8 Stanford.
