We’re handling our CFB Player of the Week selections a little differently this year with the responsibility for making the selections falling squarely on my shoulders.

I do my best to be objective each week, basing my picks on comparative performances and stats, but if you think I’m missing something, or maybe some bias has slipped in, feel free to let me know on Twitter.

This week’s player picks were clear standouts at their positions.

So without further ado, here are my Week 10 picks for SuperWest Players of the Week for Offense, Defense, and Special Teams as well as Offensive and Defensive Freshmen.

Offensive Player of the Week: DTR, QB , UCLA
