Justin Fields is a Heisman Trophy-favorite and a top NFL Draft prospect for a reason, you know?
Entering the 2020 season, the proverbial favorite to win the Heisman Trophy besides Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence was Justin Fields of the Ohio State Buckeyes. Even though the Big Ten season got off to a later start than normal, Fields is dominating the competition and proving why he’s destined to be a top-five pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But how good is he?
During Saturday’s game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Fields notched his eighth touchdown of the season, which puts him over the number of incompletions he’s thrown thus far (seven).

Fields broke the touchdown-to-incompletion ratio in the first quarter, where he led the Buckeyes down to a five-play drive, which culminated in him scrambling for a seven-yard touchdown to give them a 14-3 lead.
The Buckeyes signal-caller secured his ninth touchdown of the season one drive later, as he hit receiver Chris Olave for a six-yard score to put Rutgers in an early 21-3 hole.
Fields is a favorite to win the Heisman Trophy for a reason. He’s made few mistakes this season and is making opposing defenses pay for their mistakes. Enjoy it now Buckeyes fans, because he’s destined to be a top NFL quarterback by this time next year.
