    Here's the list so far for the Top 100 players as voted on by the players. This is supposed to be for 2018, but as always the previous year's performance skews the results heavier than it is supposed to. Joe Thomas, OT, Browns made the list, but his retirement disqualified him. That moved the #101 player, Clinton-Dix, into the Top 100.

    Wow, so Rico will be in the top 20? That's pretty bold.

    Guess many of the players don’t think Zeke is the best RB.

    I thought Kamara might make the list this year, but I doubt he's top 20. Same with Ju-Ju.

    If Ingram is on there at 43, there's no way Kamara doesn't make the list. More yards, more TDs, better yards per carry and catch, younger, healthier and not suspended for four games . He'll be in the top 20.

    The voting probably happened before the suspension came through. The problem with Ingram vs Kamara is that they are viewing them as RBs and Ingram had over 50% more rushing yards than Kamara. Kamara had more yards from scrimmage but he didn't have top tier rushing yardage or receiving yardage totals.

    ... but personally, I consider Kamara a much bigger threat in 2018. I certainly would pick him over Ingram if I could snag one of them.

    I simply can't imagine that anyone would look at Ingram and Kamara and say that Ingram belongs higher on a Top Players for 2018 list. Kamara will be in the top 20.

    There's a lot about the list that's hard to fathom when you consider it is compiled from player ballots where they only listed their Top 20 best players in the league.

    That means some players picked Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Malcolm Jenkins as one of the 20 best players in the NFL - and you could make a case that Dix and Jenkins aren't even in the top 10 best safeties in the league.

    The best RT in the league being 95 and below guys he dominated is a joke.

    Also Jenkins doing better than last year but falling.

    He missed 6 games, that's 6 teams that didn't get to see him, as the old saying goes "out of sight, out of mind"...

    This was voted on after the super bowl. Do the eagles have 2 QBs in the top 20?

    You'd think there's not a chance, but then you look at the bottom of the list and you wonder how Foles couldn't have gotten more votes than some of them.

    I'm waiting to see if the Steelers have 15% or 20% of the Top 20 players in the league on their offense. It all depends on whether Ju Ju made the list or not.

    I like Juju a lot, but there’s no way he’s the third or fourth best wr in the league. But he should have made the list.

    I agree, he's not... not yet :)

    If he makes the Top 20, we'll know how important the personality and celebrations are to the players.

    So what is the criteria to be on this list? Although I think Jimmy G is going to be good but he only played in 7 games last year.

    Not really any criteria except on an active roster for 2018. Players can vote for whoever they want. They are only supposed to look at 2018, but they always heavily weigh the previous year(s). Shazier being on the list is an extreme example of this.

    Not holding against you for posting, so don't get me wrong.

    But I quit watching this or even paying attention after the first couple of years.
    It's just so silly.
