Special Teams
K: Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens
P: Johnny Hekker, Los Angeles Rams
KR: Jordan Todman, Indianapolis Colts
PR: Marcus Sherels, Minnesota Vikings
ST: Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings

We chose Evans over A.J. Green due to his 8 TDs at mid-season. Yes, there are three Cowboys on the offensive line, but with the running of Elliott and the protection given to Prescott, we think they deserve it.

Lavonte David is back to his old self, making plays in the backfield and good coverage, Miller edges Khalil Mack for the rush backer. Kerry Hyder leads non-starters in sacks, he comes into the game and plays 3-technique, though he's listed as a defensive end.

Cordarrelle Patterson is a fine kick returner, but he's been a gunner this year and seems to get down the field more often than anyone we've noticed so far this year. Hekker has just one touchback and with the Rams offensive woes, he may be the team's MVP thus far.
