No. 5 Seth Fisher

The Spiders possess several offensive weapons at the skill positions and Fisher is definitely one to look out for. Fisher rushed for 777 yards on 170 carries (4.6 yards-per-carry) and 12 touchdowns during the 2014 season. The redshirt senior may not be the flashiest back in the world, but he gets the tough yards when necessary. Fisher is a very instinctive rusher that can see running lanes very well. The Salem, Va. native finished 10th in the CAA in rushing with 59.8 yards-per-game.

While Fisher’s numbers aren’t eye-popping, he definitely has the ability to give the Maryland defense problems. The Terps were 12th in the Big Ten in rushing defense last season, allowing 201.9 yards-per-game and 4.5 yards-per-carry. If Fisher can establish himself early, Maryland could be very vulnerable.
