1. Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson’s MVP candidacy can no longer be ignored. After knocking off Carson Wentz’s Eagles in his typical eye-popping manner, he is the clear cut choice for MVP. He is tied for the most total TDs in the league, accounting for 29 of the Seahawks 30 total TDs. He leads the league in total yards and 4th quarter passer rating. All due respect to the Seahawks, but Russell Wilson is the Seahawks. He is the best and most valuable player in the NFL.
2. Antonio Brown
Most of the WR focus this week has been on Keenan Allen, who became the first WR in NFL history to record at least 10 receptions, 100 receiving yards, and a TD, in three straight games. Antonio Brown was only two receptions away from that last week, and it was seen as normal. The week before, he made two amazing clutch sideline catches to power the Steelers to victory. With 1,296 receiving yards on the year, he leads the NFL by over 200 yards. He is just that good, all the time.
