From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

Making the case for Watkins: The fact that he’s suspended for the first two games doesn’t mean he’s not still the most talented player in the conference. It means coach Dabo Swinney has sent the team a message that no one player -- not even a potential Heisman candidate -- is bigger than the team. Watkins will be missed against Auburn, but he will be back in time for the Sept. 22 trip to Florida State, and he will have the previous week’s game against Furman to shake any rust off. Watkins has said he doesn’t even know what a “sophomore slump” is, and he’s hoping to improve upon last year’s breakout debut. What’s most amazing about last year’s record-setting season for Watkins was that he’s capable of even more, and that’s why he’s at the top of this list.
