Will Fournette be in the Heisman race as a true Sophomore?

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Bovada, the famous Sportsbook in Las Vegas, released some college football player prop bets, including odds on the Heisman Trophy.

Freshman sensation Leonard Fournette was given 7/1 odds, ranking second best of all players mentioned. You can find the rest of the odds here. Fournette and Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott were both given 7/1 odds. Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott was given the best odds, at 6/1.

If Fournette were to claim the Trophy, he'd be the second true Sophomore player to ever do so, Tim Tebow was the other, and only the fourth second-year player. Recent history has allowed more young players to take the trophy, including Sam Bradford, Mark Ingram, Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston.

What do you think? Can Fournette be in the running for Heisman in 2015? Or will LSU still turn to the committee, limiting his overall touches, and thus, his overall production?
