Florida State junior RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in the school's 31-13 win over Florida.

He added another 26 receiving yards on three catches. Cook dominated in-state opponents during his time with the Seminoles. We have listed Cook as the top running back in the nation thanks to his big play ability and consistent control of the team's rushing totals. Cook, who still has at least one more game to play, will receive questions about his shoulder injuries throughout the draft process, but he is so so good. Cook deflected questions about the NFL draft following the school's victory.

FSU junior WR Travis Rudolph had five receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win at Syracuse.

Rudolph is up to a 49-744-6 line, which is in line with his 59-916-7 line from last year. He's been hot since mid-October, going off for 13 catches for 238 yards against Wake Forest and then scoring a touchdown in three straight games.

LSU beat writer Ross Dellenger reports LSU has its "sights on" FSU's Jimbo Fisher to be the school's next head coach.

Dellenger includes a few details, like a small group of decision makers have narrowed a list to around four targets, and it ends with naming Ed Orgeron as head coach. We won;t spend too much time on this, as coaching speculation lasts for weeks and usually includes very little truth, but LSU is expected to act quickly.

Florida State redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois completed 18-of-28 passes for 315 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 45-14 win over Syracuse.

Syracuse was playing without starting quarterback Eric Dungey again. For his part, Francois connected for completions with six different receivers, with Auden Tate (five catches, 77 yards) posting the best stat line. The Seminoles close out the regular season next Saturday at home against Florida.
Nov 19 - 7:36 PM

FSU junior RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 225 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-14 win over Syracuse.

In so doing, he broke Warrick Dunn's (3,959) 20-year old record to become Florida State's career rushing leader. Cook is the sixth player to reach 4,000 yards in Atlantic Coast Conference history. Cook, who logged his seventh 100-yard game today, now has 4,166 career rushing yards. About Cook, a first-round prospect, an NFL exec told NFL.com earlier this season: "He's both quick and explosive. He's easy to scout."

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher reaffirmed his love for the Seminoles in the face of rumors that he might leave for LSU.

On Tuesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune's James Smith relayed that LSU AD Joe Alleva has been in touch with Fisher's representation since the Tigers' firing of Les Miles in September. Fisher predictably tried to squash the continued job speculation, saying, "I’m not going to talk about any jobs. I love being at Florida State. I love being here, and I’m just getting ready for Syracuse." It should be noted that Fisher did not outright dismiss Smith's report, nor did he deny interest in the job.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's James Smith reports that Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher and LSU interim HC Ed Orgeron are both legitimate contenders to take over the Tigers' vacant head coaching position.

Per Smith, LSU AD Joe Alleva has kept in communication with Fisher's representatives since Les Miles' firing in September. Smith further relays that while Fisher's contract contains a $5 million buyout, the Tigers are not deterred by having to pony up those bucks. In addition to Fisher and Orgeron, Mike Gundy, Tom Herman and Larry Fedora are being considered for the open gig.

FSU sophomore WR Auden Tate caught six passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 45-7 win over Boston College.

Both of Tate's touchdown grabs in this one came from six yards out, though they did not come from the same quarterback. Deondre Francois hit him for the score with 8:53 remaining in the first quarter. After Francois was forced out with a right shoulder contusion in the second half, Sean Maguire came on to feed Tate once more in the closing seconds of the third quarter. This was the 6-foot-5, 218-pounder's best overall game of the season by a fair margin. His previous yardage high came against NC State last weekend, when he caught three passes for 68 yards.
Nov 11 - 10:44 PM

FSU junior RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in Friday's 45-7 win over Boston College.

Nice rebound game for Cook, who was held to 65 yards on the ground by NC State last time out. The 6-foot, 200-pounder wasn't able to break out for one of his trademark blink-and-you'll-miss-it touchdown bolts -- his long run went for 30 yards -- but he did notch an easy 19-yard scoring run with just over two minutes remaining in the first half. On that one, he glided around to the right before cutting up field and making one cut to reach the end zone untouched. Cook needs 19 more yards to set the school career record for rushing. He figures to surpass Warrick Dunn at some point in next weekend's game Syracuse. For the season as a whole, Cook has now rushed for 1,242 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Nov 11 - 10:43 PM

FSU redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois has been ruled out for the remainder of Friday's game against Boston College due to a right shoulder contusion.

Francois has been banged up and batted around this season and has fought through shoulder and neck ailments to play in all 10 of FSU's games to date. In Friday's contest, Boston College shook him up in the third quarter. ESPN's broadcast has relayed that while Francois will not return to action against the Eagles, his shoulder contusion is not considered major. The Seminoles are up 38-0 with a little over 10 minutes remaining in the game, so there was no need to push Francois back into action. He finished out having completed 16-of-24 passes for 183 yards and three touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder had not thrown for more than one touchdown in any of his previous three contests.
Nov 11 - 10:20 PM

Florida State sophomore S Derwin James will be held out for the remainder of the regular season.

It is not surprise based on how head coach Jimbo Fisher recently answered questions about James' status. The initial prognosis put James' timetable to return around the Clemson contest, but FSU will not reach the College Football Playoff and there was no long term reason to rush James back. Fisher did say James, the team's most talented defensive player, could return for the bowl game. He will be back next season.

FSU junior RB Dalvin Cook will not participate in the school's Senior Day against Florida on Nov. 26.

This is not a surprise, as it is a common theme for Florida State compared to many other programs. Jameis Winston, Jalen Ramsey and Devonta Freeman, among others, also did not participate in Senior Day. We expect Dalvin Cook to be in the NFL next season.
Nov 9 - 11:09 AM

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher indicated that sophomore S Derwin James (knee) remains out indefinitely.

James was spotted running prior to Saturday's game against NC State, but that in-and-of itself is not a sign of an imminent return. The 6-foot-1, 199-pound sophomore continues to rehab from torn cartilage in his left knee suffered during the second week of the 2016 campaign. In late October, Fisher said that he hoped that James would be able to return "soon." The Seminoles close the regular season with contests against Boston College, Syracuse and Florida.

Florida State senior WR Bobo Wilson (foot) will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

Wilson underwent surgery on his injured foot on Monday. The surgery ends not only his 2016 season, but also his collegiate career. The 5-foot-10, 184-pound Wilson finished out his Seminoles' career having caught 133 passes for 1,562 yards and eight touchdowns. With Wilson officially out of the picture, Nyqwan Murray should be given strong fantasy consideration as a waiver-wire selection. Against NC State on Saturday, he caught nine passes for 153 yards. He caught six for 96 yards and a touchdown two weekends ago against Clemson.

FSU sophomore WR Nyqwan Murray caught nine passes for 153 yards in Saturday's 24-20 win over NC State.

With Bobo Wilson sidelined due to a foot injury, Murray has stepped up in each of his last two games. Against Clemson last weekend, the 5-foot-11, 176-pound sophomore notched a 6-96-1 receiving line. He was unable to find the end zone on Saturday, but upped both his receptions and yardage totals against the Wolfpack. He is worth a fantasy flier at this juncture. It is unknown when (or if) Wilson will be physically capable of returning to action this season, leaving the door open for Murray to continue to see increased opportunities.
