*Disclaimer* Some players wern’t showing on the stats screen under the entire NFL. Tried my best to get everyone, but apologies if anyone worthy of a Top 50 spot was missed.
50. TY Hilton WR IND – 972 yards, 11TDs
TY came on strong this season, getting close to 1,000 yards and 11 scores on the season.
49. John Ross WR CIN – 960 yards 10TDs (10 games)
The speedster only played 10 games this year but had nearly 1,000 yards and 10 TD’s. It will be great to see what he can do with a full season, and if he can beat his totals from last year.
48. Nigel Bradham LOLB PHI – 107 tackles, 21TFL, 2 sacks, 4INTs, 1FF, 2TDs
The Philly linebacker was everywhere this season, with tackles, sacks, picks, fumbles and touchdowns. A good veteran player for coach Hubble to build his defence around.
47. Sony Michel NE – 1107 yards, 5.1 AVG, 12TDs
Sony had a great second year, hitting the 1,000 mark and getting plenty of TDs to go with it.
46. Janoris Jenkins CB NYG – 47 tackles, 4TFL, 11INTs, 10 deflections, 1TD
Jenkins is getting on, but still beasting for the Giants. He turned it on massively this year, with 11 picks and plenty of deflections.
45. Jordan Hicks ROLB NE – 99 tackles, 19TFL, 3 sacks, 5 INTs, 15 deflections
The versatile OLB did it all, tackles, sacks and picks. A cornerstone for the Pats defence.
44. Devante Adams WR GB – 1076 yards 11TDs
Rodgers go-to guy, Adams played brilliant this year. He gave his QB a reliable target and ended the year leading his team in receiving yards and TDs.
43. Rob Gronkowski TE NE – 1085 yards 11 TDs
Gronk is the best TE in the league and gets his way on to another top 50 list. He beat all other TE’s decidedly and proved to be a key piece in the Pats arsenal.
42. AJ Green WR CIN – 863 yards, 13 TDs
Green was a red zone machine, getting 13 scores on the year. Despite not hitting the 1000 mark in yardage, he produced for his team in the only stat that matters, points.
41. Phillip Smelter JAX – 2773 yards, 26 TDs, 12INTs
The Bortles replacement, the rookie had a very tidy year. Despite not getting the yards, he controlled the game and was very good at not turning over the ball
40. Todd Gurley LAR – 1174 yards, 5.3 AVG, 12TDs
Another great season running the ball from Gurley, this year he was able to stay healthy and build on last year’s performance for an entire season.
39. Mike Williams WR SEA – 952 yards 13TDs
Williams was the top man for the Hawks and his 13 TDs gave confidence in his QB to throw the ball his way consistently.
38. Ezekiel Elliott BUF – 1155 yards, 6 AVG, 12 TDs
Zeke continues to be a stud in Buffalo, putting up great stats this season. After missing out last year, I think he really wanted to be on the list this year!
37. DJ Moore CAR – 1300 yards 10TDs
New coach, new QB, no problem. Moore excelled this season and was definitely the rookie QBs go-to guy.
36. Juju Smith Schuster WR PIT – 1233 yards 11 TDs
Juju showed that he could do everything AB could do, which is likely why the Steelers traded Brown this offseason. He led his team in TDs and yards.
35. Jessie Bates FS CIN – 76 tackles, 2TFL, 1 sack, 11INTs
Bates was a key piece on a strong Bengals defence. His 11 picks were second on the team only to Evans.
34. Will Fuller WR BUF – 1065 yards 14 TDs
The other menace on the Bills receiving corps, Fuller was Allen’s guy when Nuuk was covered.
33. Darius Leonard MLB IND – 72 tackles, 13TFL, 3sacks, 11INTs, 10 deflections
Leonard is the young leader of the Colts defence and led the team in tackles and picks.
32. Casey Hayward FS CLE – 80 tackles, 3TFL, 11INTs, 14 deflections, 1TD
Hayward is the top guy in the Browns secondary and he proved why a switch to safety was a good thing at this stage of his career.
31. Kamu Grugier-Hill ROLB MIA – 97 tackles, 12TFL, 16.5 sacks, 2INTs 3FF, 1TD
“The User Beast” as a former coach of his once called him, Grugier-Hill looked to live up to the expectations that came with him, after the Dolphins gave a 1st for him.
30. Chandler Jones LE ARI – 49 tackles, 18.5 sacks, 4FF
Another great season for the veteran DE, he led the team in sacks and had a good number of fumbles.
29. Yannick Ngakoue RE JAX – 35 tackles, 18 sacks, 9 FF
The leader in forced fumbles this year, Ngakoue was an absolute beast for the Jags defence.
28. Joseph Jones LOLB CAR – 51 tackles, 5TFL, 1sack, 11INTs, 4TDs
Jones came out of nowhere, a 70OVR playing like a world beater. His 4 defensive TD’s led the league and he’ll be looking to build on this strong season for next year.
27. Odell Beckham Jr WR NYG – 1629 yards, 11TD’s
OBJ had another great year for the G-men. Their go-to guy was a menace in one-on-one situations and helped the rookie QB.
26. Justin Houston LE KC – 47 tackles, 13TFL, 19 sacks, 1FF
Houston had a position change to DE this year, but that didn’t hurt his production. A constant terror on the edge and made life hard for the quarterback
25. Everson Griffin RE MIN – 64 tackles, 18TFL, 19 sacks, 4FF, 1safety
Griffin kept any gains going his way limited, with great stats in every category.
24. Deshone Kizer QB CIN – 3472 yards, 27 TDs, 19INTs
Kizer had a good showing this year, leading the Bengals to another good season offensively.
23. Aaron Donald DT LAR – 66 tackles, 10TFL 20sacks, 3FF,
Donald had another monster season with 20 sacks and a solid run defence. This Donald doesn’t need to build a wall, he IS the wall.
22. Demario Davis ROLB NO – 82 tackles, 15TFL, 11 sacks, 8INTs, 3FF, 2TDs
Davis was an all-rounder, getting a bit of everything this season. The key to the Saints defence is consistently getting stronger.
21. Aaron Rodgers QB GB – 3952 yards, 30 TDs, 29 INTs
Even a coupe of years on, and Rodgers is still proving why he’s one of the best QBs in the league. Having an ARod led offense with a dominant defence was a tough struggle for any team going against it.
20. Devonta Freeman HB ATL – 1315 yards, 5 AVG, 14TDs
Freeman was able to keep this offense going during Matty Ice’s struggles, and consistently broke off big gains for the Falcons.
19. Jaire Alexander CB GB – 46 tackles, 2TFL, 11 INTs, 2FF
Another of the top CB’s in the league, it seemed like Alexander caught the ball whenever Burks didn’t.
18. Cam Newton QB NYJ – 4,053 yards, 32 TDs, 32INTs, 407 rush yards, 4 rush TDs
Cam had a mostly positive season, despite with an even TD:INT ratio, but proved he could get it done in New York and still has his legs. Certainly helped to have a guy like Anderson running the routes.
17. Derrius Guice HB WAS – 1341 yards, 6 AVG, 15 TDs
Guice dropped off a bit from last years high, but still managed a strong season with 15 TDs.
16. Jamal Adams SS NYJ – 79 tackles, 4TFL, 5 sacks, 13INTs, 1TD
Adams was the leader of this Jets defence and managed to excel in pass coverage, blitzing and run defence.
15. Andrew Luck QB IND – 3947 yards, 37 TDs, 21 INTs
Luck had a great year throwing the ball, with a good TD:INT ratio and nearly 4k yards.
14. Myles Garrett RE CLE – 69 tackles, 22TFL, 20 sacks, 1FF, 1 safety
Garrett continues to decimate offensive lines. He was constantly in the backfield and in the face of running backs and quarterbacks.
13. Patrick Peterson CB ARI – 40 tackles, 3 TFL, 13 INTs, 17 deflections, 2TDs
In a bit of a resurgence for cornerbacks, PatPete was the best of the bunch. He was around the ball all season, putting up 13 picks and 17 deflections over the year.
12. Deandre Hopkins WR BUF – 1623 yards, 14 TDs
Nuuk was a big reason for Allen’s success this year. The beastly receiver put up great numbers and helped lead the Bills to the Super Bowl win.
11. Jordan Evans MLB CIN – 77 tackles, 12 TFL, 6 sacks, 13INTs 2FF, 1 safety, 1 TD
Evans had quite a stellar season, proving he is a versatile linebacker and putting up good stats in every category.
10. Khalil Mack LE OAK – 53 tackles, 13TFL, 20 sacks, 6FF
Mack proved to the Raiders why it was a good idea to let him stay around.
9. Leonard Fournette JAX – 1440 yards, 7.7 AVG, 16 TDs (13 games)
The best running back this year only played 13 games, and still put up monstrous numbers. Fournette’s 7.7 average was the best by far and he was well on pace to hit the 2k mark if he could have stayed healthy.
8. Demarcus Lawrence LE DAL – 65 tackles, 17 TFL, 23.5 sacks, 1FF
Dem Boyz looked a bit different this year. Led by D-Law on defence, he racked up an impressive sack total and earned himself the franchise tag.
7. Josh Allen QB BUF – 4247 yards, 39 TDs, 10INTs
The leagues best QB, Allen was able to throw the ball everywhere and limited the interceptions. The Chiefs have already made the move to get their next franchise signal caller.
6. Takk McKinley RE ATL – 75 tackles, 22TFL, 25.5 sacks, 5FF, 1 safety
Last years MVP had a comparatively “down” year, but still manages to snag a top 10 spot and proves he is still the dominant defender he was last year.
5. Trey Flowers LE NE – 65 tackles, 10TFL, 27 sacks, 8FF
Flowers becomes the new sack king with a dominating season in New England. His 8 forced fumbles also led the league.
4.Robby Anderson WR NYJ – 2025 yards, 17TDs
A 2k receiving season and the most yards in NFL history will solidify you as a top 5 in this list. Anderson was Cams go to guy the whole year and put up some crazy numbers.
3. Roquan Smith MLB CHI – 99 tackles, 11TFL, 2 sacks, 27 INTs 3FF 1TD
The top 3 just have ridiculous stats that are very difficult to split. Smith comes in at #3 with an amazing season and would be a clear number 1 in any other year.
2. Oren Burks MLB GB – 93 tackles, 12TFL, 1.5 sacks, 28 INTs 1FF
Just beaten to the top spot by a few tackles and a pick, Burks improved massively on his previous season and became one of the league top pass defenders.
1. Tremaine Edmunds MLB BUF – 101 tackles, 13 TFL, 28 INTs 1FF 1TD
An amazing season puts the leader of the Super Bowl Champion Buffalo Bills at the top of the list.
