Josh Allen, Buffalo Expenses QB — Buffalo can be a 5-12 workforce with out Allen. He will have to be the unquestioned NFL MVP, taking the Expenses to their fourth consecutive AFC East championship. Allen led all QBs with 44 general TDs, 4,830 general yards and scored 80 extra Delusion issues than his nearest competitor (Dak Prescott).
Christian McCaffrey, San Francisco 49ers RB — No RB hits a hollow sooner than McCaffrey, and no RB rankings extra Delusion issues. He obliterated the remainder of the RB box in Delusion, scoring 477 issues on 2,023 blended yards dashing and receiving, with 21 TDs.
CeeDee Lamb, Dallas Cowboys WR — Lamb publish Jerry Rice-like numbers, with 135 receptions, 1,749 yards and 12 TDs. His rapport with QB Dak Prescott used to be borderline psychic. Dak persistently knew the place CeeDee can be at the box and invariably were given him the ball.
Travis Kelce, Kansas Town Chiefs TE — Kelce had a “down 12 months,” however nonetheless led all TEs in receptions (93) and yards (984). The selfless beau of Taylor Swift relinquished his shot at 1,000 yards by way of sitting out the remaining recreation of the season. No want to get injured in a meaningless recreation when the Tremendous Bowl is the objective.
Pat Mahomes, Kansas Town Chiefs QB — Mahomes is a winner, and moderately perhaps the most productive QB since Tom Brady. However for Delusion functions, he dissatisfied. He threw for 18 much less TDs and virtually 1,000 fewer passing yards lower than remaining 12 months. That’s an enormous decline.

Pat Freiermuth, Pittsburgh Steelers TE — Freiermuth’s identify intently resembles the identify of a super chocolate chip cookie (Freihofer), however boy did this cookie collapse in 2023. Taken forward of Sam LaPorta and Dalton Kincaid in maximum Delusion drafts, Freiermuth ended the season twenty eighth in TE scoring. Sensible cookies will keep away from drafting him subsequent 12 months.
BILLBOARD WAIVER WIRE GOLD
Baker Mayfield, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB — Baker publish dreadful numbers for the Panthers and Rams remaining 12 months, compiling a report of 2-8. It used to be no wonder that no person drafted him in Delusion.

Zack Moss, Indianapolis Colts RB — Moss went undrafted in maximum leagues even if beginning RB Jonathan Taylor used to be anticipated to omit time.

Moss had six TDs and 615 yards dashing for clever homeowners that snatched him up.

However I know that the 5th spherical pick of BYU had each and every workforce that plucked him off the waiver cord dancing for pleasure. Puka set the NFL rookie unmarried season data for receptions (105) and receiving yards (1,486), completing because the WR4, higher than All-Professional WRs Stefon Diggs and Mike Evans.
