DeAndre Hopkins (52 rec, 726 yards, 5 TDs) – Hopkins is on course for a career year, as his 726 receiving yards leads the NFL, and he has been the Texans’ most dangerous threat on offense.
Martavis Bryant (6 rec, 137 yards, 2 TD) – A big play receiver who can stretch the field for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bryant made his impact felt in his first action in Week 6 against the Cardinals, where he scored two touchdowns, and has established himself as a perfect complement to All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown.
Sammy Watkins (11 rec, 137 yards, 2 TD) – Despite being hampered by early injury, Watkins is the No. 1 threat in the Buffalo Bills’ receiving corps.
Dwayne Allen (7 rec, 61 yards, TD) – Allen is a prime redzone target for the Indianapolis Colts and one of the more verstaile, young tight ends in the NFL.
Andre Ellington (193 rush yards, 8.7 ypc, 2 TD) – Ellington is a threat to score from anywhere on the field and is one of the most explosive players for the Arizona Cardinals.
Vic Beasley (15 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 FF) – Beasley has gotten Atlanta Falcons fans excited for his future as a premier pass rusher, and has graded out as one of the Falcons’ best defensive players six weeks into the season.
Jarvis Jenkins (18 tackles, 3.5 sacks) – The former Washington Redskin has experienced a rebirth as a member of the Chicago Bears, and has provided spark for a Bears defensive line looking to boost its pass rush.
Stephone Anthony (38 tackles, 1 sack) – Anthony is the second-leading tackler for the Saints, and has been a huge upgrade for a team looking for playmakers on its defense.
Byron Maxwell (31 tackles, 1 FF) – In his first season with the Philadelphia Eagles, Maxwell is fourth on the team in tackles and an aggressive cover corner in the passing game.
Marcus Gilchrist (23 tackles, 2 INTs) – In his first year with the New York Jets, Gilchrist is in a secondary that ranks No. 2 in pass defense and No. 1 in total defense.
Chandler Cantanzaro (9/10 FG, Lng 43) – Cantanzaro continued right where he left off from last season for the Arizona Cardinals, and continues to be one of the most reliable kickers in the lague.
Bradley Pinion (26 punts, 43.5 Avg, Lng 59, 8 inside 20) – The only punter drafted in 2015, Pinion has displayed the strong leg that made the San Francisco 49ers take a chance on him.
