Which NFL Players are Worth the Risk?
- by admin
NFL.com – March 15, 2019The first thing to realize is that, while a player might be a good bet to make a quick buck off a few big plays, a team can also win with him.
If the team is a contender, it has a better chance of winning the championship.
The following is a list of the players who have made the most money during the 2017 NFL season.
The best player to watch in the NFL in 2017, according to the Spotrac website:Cameron Meredith, CB, Carolina PanthersThe Carolina Panthers had two top-five draft picks in 2017: cornerback Cameron Meredith and running back Tevin Coleman.
They drafted both with the intention of finding a quarterback to run the offense, and both players have proven themselves to be the answer.
With their combined $24 million in cap hits, both players are now in the top 10 of the most valuable players in NFL history.
The Panthers can count on Meredith as a backup to Josh Norman and Coleman as a third-down back.
In a league that’s in flux at the position, they can be relied on to make some big plays down the stretch.
They’re the only NFL team that has not missed a playoff game with two or more starting cornerbacks.
The other players who made the best bets during the NFL season:Nate Washington, WR, Baltimore RavensThe Ravens are expected to take a big step forward this season with the addition of Nate Washington.
Washington was a first-round pick in the 2017 draft, but has yet to make his mark on the league.
He has one touchdown in three games and has been plagued by injury, but the Ravens believe in his upside.
Washington, who was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 3, has five touchdown catches for 121 yards.
In the NFL, every team needs a WR1, and Washington is the perfect player for the Ravens.
In his rookie season, Washington caught 55 passes for 1,097 yards and 11 touchdowns.
He’s the best receiver in the league in that respect.
He had five 100-yard receiving games this season, and he has the skills to develop into a solid No. 1 receiver in his first season with a new offense.
The second-best player to play in the National Football League this season according to Spotrac:T.J. Watt, DE, Houston TexansThe Texans are one of the teams that has been working to find a pass rusher to replace Jadeveon Clowney, but they don’t have one yet.
Watt had one of his best games of the season on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, as he totaled seven tackles and a sack.
Watt has been a solid pass rusher for the Texans all season, with one sack and three quarterback hits.
He was the third-highest paid defensive end in the 2016 draft, and the Texans could be interested in a deal that would give him more guaranteed money in the near future.
The other defensive end on the list is Marcus Lattimore, who had a career year for the Jaguars in 2017.
The next players on this list are likely to be traded away.
The third-best NFL player to make money in 2017 according to Bleacher, based on Spotrac, is Ryan Mathews, RB, Philadelphia EaglesThere’s a ton of talent on this team, but Ryan Mathewis has emerged as one of their best running backs.
Mathews led the NFL with 538 yards rushing, with 13 touchdowns and no fumbles.
Mathewises success this season has been due to a healthy rushing attack, which is why he’s now the NFL’s top-rated running back with an average of 4.4 yards per carry.
The fourth-best running back in the entire league according to Blazer’s Edge is DeMarco Murray, RB and Dallas CowboysThe Dallas Cowboys have been one of NFL’s most explosive offenses this season.
They led the league with 15 rushing touchdowns, and they had three of the game’s four games with at least 25 rushing yards.
The Cowboys are going to need to get the ball out of their offense quickly if they want to stay competitive, and Murray will be a big part of that.
The fifth-best rusher in the whole NFL according to FanDuel is Chris Ivory, RBNY GiantsThe Giants’ running back corps is very thin this season after being ravaged by injuries to Rashad Jennings, Frank Gore and Joique Bell.
Ivory, who leads the NFL this season in rushing yards with 5,898, has the tools to become an elite running back.
He rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time this season and has rushed for at least 2,000 in each of his first three seasons.
He was drafted by the New York Jets with the second overall pick, and it’s hard to argue with his performance in 2017 with a team that was in the midst of a rebuild.
Ivory had a solid season with just under 1,300 rushing yards, rushing for more than 1,100
