Big Ten Player Rankings: Ameer Abdullah tops our guys' Week 6 list

BTN.com’s Tom Dienhart and Sean Merriman recently released their Week 6 Big Ten Player Rankings. Nebraska star running back Ameer Abdullah remains No. 1 on both lists. See who else made their top 5 countdowns in this post.

TOM DIENHART

5. Tony Lippett, WR, Michigan State. The guy’s been a big-play machine for the Spartans.
2014  stats: 22 rec., 421 yards, 6 TD

4. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin. I expect him to continue to gain momentum here and for the Badgers to really lean on him more and more as we get deeper into Big Ten competition.
2014 stats: 78 car., 612 yards, 8 TD; 5 rec., 27 yards, 1 TD

3. David Cobb, RB, Minnesota. He is the guy who is the engine for a Minnesota offense that always wants to be physical and always wants to run the football.
2014 stats: 124 car., 722 yards, 4 TD; 6 rec., 88 yards

2. Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana. This Indiana pass game has not been up to snuff. That’s put more pressure on Coleman, and he’s stepped up.
2014 stats: 88 car., 691 yards, 7 TD; 9 rec., 93 yards

1. Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska. He’s been the true star of a Nebraska offense that statistically has been one of the best in America.
2014 stats: 114 car., 833 yards, 8 TD; 5 rec., 108 yards, 2 TD

SEAN MERRIMAN

5. Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State. He’s the guy that gets Lippett the ball. He’s really impressed me.
2014 stats: 54-78, 837 yards, 9 TD, 2 INT

4. David Cobb, RB, MinnesotaThis is a team that relies so heavily on the run, and he’s their guy.
2014 stats: 124 car., 722 yards, 4 TD; 6 rec., 88 yards

3. Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana. Indiana has had their ups and downs, but I do know one thing, (and) that’s that this guy is a stud.
2014 stats: 88 car., 691 yards, 7 TD; 9 rec., 93 yards

2. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin. He had a monster second half on Saturday and led them to the win.
2014 stats: 78 car., 612 yards, 8 TD; 5 rec., 27 yards, 1 TD

1. Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska. I truly believe this guy will be a Heisman finalist in New York. How can’t he be?
2014 stats: 114 car., 833 yards, 8 TD; 5 rec., 108 yards, 2 TD
