Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel voted for Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston in the 2013 Heisman Trophy race, per FanSided.com's Josh Sanchez.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel voted for Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston in the 2013 Heisman Trophy race. 

This was what FanSided.com's Josh Sanchez confirmed on Dec. 14:

"While many players would be tempted to vote for themselves, Manziel took an honest look at the season and cast his vote for the eventual winner, Florida State's Jameis Winston.

"Not only did Manziel vote for Winston ahead of him, but he voted for Boston College running back Andre Williams at No. 2. Manziel came in at No. 3 on his own ballot." 

To support his argument, Sanchez cites a Dec. 14 tweet from Billy Iucci of Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560 AM of College Station, Texas which reads,"Johnny Manziel reveals his vote: Jameis Winston 1, Andre Williams 2, himself at 3." 

As it turns out, Manziel's vote was just of many for Winston which helped him win the Heisman Trophy on Dec. 14 in landslide fashion. Manziel, known as "Johnny Football," finished fifth, per Ralph D. Russo of The Associated Press. 

Winston earned 2,205 points while Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron had 704, Northern Illinois Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch had 558, Boston College Eagles running back Andre Williams had 470, Manziel had 421 and Auburn Tigers running back Tre Mason had 404, according to ESPN. 

Russo was able to quote Manziel, who offered some words of praise and advise to the Florida State redshirt freshman quarterback, who is just the second freshman after Manziel in 2012 to win the Heisman. 

"I had to go through controversy and I had to go through some things. To see him at such a young age, to put his head down and to focus on his teammates and where they are and where they're headed...I do give him a lot of credit for that with all the scrutiny he's under. I feel like he's done a tremendous job of focusing on his team and on his family and what matters most.

"Live it up. Enjoy it. Continue to be yourself and don't let let anybody change from that. You're going to have to adapt to how life is going to be after this.

"Stay focused. Stay true to yourself and continue to be the person that you are." 

Not only did Winston become just the second freshman to cop the Heisman. He, at 19 years and 342 days old, is also the youngest to ever do so. He became "the overwhelming favorite" to win after a sexual assault case in Tallahassee, Fla. concluded with no charges being filed against him, the ESPN report goes on to say.

As for Manziel, he is now a third-year junior who "can declare for the NFL after his season," per Russo. Should he do so, Manziel's last collegiate game will be the Chick-fil-A-Bowl on Dec. 31 against the Duke Blue Devils.

Manziel concluded the 2013 NCAA regular season with 3,732 yards, 33 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, per ESPN stats .

Once you get out of the first five rounds in your fantasy draft, taking risks can be the great separator between winning a championship and bringing up the rear and being subjected to endless ribbing from your friends.  Anyone can tell you what to do in the first round—Adrian Peterson is the best player available, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees will throw for a lot of yards and touchdowns—but depth is just as important to winning a championship.  Even though there is plenty of time to prep for ...
