The SEC boasts some of the most talented players in college football. Many of the opening week’s biggest standouts proudly represented the Southeastern Conference in nationally televised games. However, several SEC players were less than stellar, despite entering with lofty expectations.

Here are five players that will look to bounce back in Week 2 after disappointing starts:

5. Marquez North, WR, Tennessee: Marquez North didn’t play poorly. In fact, when targeted North made four receptions and averaged nine yards per catch. However, with a preseason Coaches All-SEC nomination, North is expected to put up major numbers in Tennessee’s improved offense. With just 38 yards in Sunday’s win, North will look to have a breakout performance against Arkansas St. The Vols wide receivers excelled as a group, but failed to put up big individual numbers from sharing so many receptions. As Tennessee faces tougher competition, North will likely become the true focus of the passing attack.

4. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU: Leonard “Adrian Peterson” Fournette didn’t do much in his college football debut. The No.1 prospect for the 2014 high school class rushed for 18 yards on eight attempts. Fournette gets a pass for being eased into his first college game. However, with the comparisons to Peterson, the top ranking for his recruiting class and preseason freshman All-SEC accolades, Fournette needs to have a big game to live up to huge expectations before being labeled as a freshman bust.

3. Keith Marshall, RB, Georgia: It’s one thing to be overshadowed by the 198-yard performance of Todd Gurley. It’s another to be out-rushed by four players. That was Keith Marshall’s Saturday in a nutshell. Marshall rushed for eight yards on six attempts. Freshmen Nick Chubb (70 yds) and Sony Michel (33) combined to gain 103 yards. Junior fullback Quayvon Hicks (14) and pint-sized freshman wideout Isaiah McKenzie (9) out-rushed Marshall. Marshall’s coming off an injury-shortened season where he rushed for 246 yards in five games. After Georgia’s bye week, we’ll see if Marshall’s a factor in the South Carolina game on Sept. 13.

2. O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama: O.J. Howard was projected to have a breakout season in Lane Kiffin’s new offense. Instead, the preseason All-SEC nominee ended his first game with zero catches and saw only one pass thrown his way, which resulted in an interception. Howard’s lack of involvement is even more surprising considering Blake Sims’ inexperience, with most assuming the talented tight end to be his preferred option on less-risky short passes. Howard has the talent to bounce back and will put up major stats if targeted more in Week 2.

1. Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina: Mike Davis entered the season as a Heisman favorite on the SEC East’s projected top team. After Week 1, neither prediction looks very solid. Davis rushed for 15 yards on six attempts and South Carolina struggled in his absence. The Gamecocks fell 52-28 in a surprising loss to Texas A&M. Davis battled an injury in his first game, which head coach Steve Spurrier says likely won’t stop the junior from playing this weekend. Against East Carolina and assuming he’ll play with banged up ribs, Davis should reclaim his role as the premiere option in South Carolina’s offense.
