GTBF54 Posted September 24, 2015 Share Posted September 24, 2015 The Beastly.....1. Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Falcons (+3.4 grade through two games)It feels like a big game with a monster stat line is brewing for Beasley, who has turned the corner on tackles only for quick-hitting passing attacks to prevent the big plays. He is playing well and looks explosive off the edge.2. T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jaguars (+2.7)Only six running backs in the NFL have played more snaps than Yeldon, and none of them have earned as high a grade. He’s becoming a guy who is taking pressure off of QB Blake Bortles well.3. Marcus Peters, CB, Chiefs (+2.3)He leads the league with his six passes defended through two games, and while there is an element of boom-or-bust to his game, he’s made a positive impact overall.4. Henry Anderson, DT, Colts (+2.5)He will need to do a lot more rushing the passer to move up (or stay this high), but when you have the most defensive stops in the run game of any interior defender, you’re doing something right.5. Hau’oli Kikaha, OLB, Saints (+2.1)Many were concerned how Kikaha would handle the adjustment to the NFL, but he has fit in seamlessly for the Saints. He is making a far bigger contribution in run defense than anticipated.6. Ronald Darby, CB, Bills (+1.1)He is certainly being tested, but so far he is standing up to it. He has been thrown at 18 times already but has allowed just half of those to be complete, while picking off one pass and breaking up another two.7. Carl Davis, DL, Ravens (+1.9)He had a tough day against the Raiders after a great Week 1 performance. If he has one more game like he did versus Oakland, then he is not long for this list.8. David Parry, NT, Colts (+1.4)The new Kelly Gregg really caught the eye with how he handled the Jets’ Nick Mangold in Week 2. Not many players can do that. His early downs role will likely ensure he can’t get to the front of this race, but there’s no reason why performances like the ones against the Jets can’t keep him on it prominently.9. Mitch Morse, C, Chiefs (+1.2)Unable to replicate his stellar opening week against Denver in Week 2, Morse can still be considered an early-season success for how well he has adjusted to a new position, and to the NFL.10. Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans (-4.4)Mariota’s Week 2 performance against the Browns was not pretty. His accuracy went down, his negative throws went up and he now ranks near the bottom of our QB grades. He’s hanging onto the back of this race and will need a bounce back to make a better impression going forward.https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2015/09/24/top-10-nfl-rookies-entering-week-3/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
