Prepare your arguing devices!
The NFL is a shifting landscape, but there are a few things you can always depend on.
Jerry Jones will always be the sounding board for ideas the league thinks might be good but also might be met with Molotav cocktails. An NFL player will be arrested/suspended/set on fire for some really dumb thing while the rest of the NFL does charitable work we’ll never read about.
And some players will show up on Sunday and, almost without fail, destroy the competition.
The dominant player at each of the following positions is determined a little differently per position, and we’ll touch on the specific criteria for each.
The bottom line overall, though, is that each of these players shows elite physical prowess at his position consistently throughout the season. We’re looking heavily at last season but also to see if the player has been consistently dominant over recent seasons.
I also referred to Pro Football Focus's individual player rankings as well.
Of course, you have to take a lot of other things into consideration, but we’ll get to those as needed.
