Highlight Squad: Weeks 1 & 2

Quarterback

Broncos: Peyton Manning opened his MVP candidacy with 462 yards and 7 touchdowns in week 1.

Packers: Aaron Rodgers responded with his MVP bid by throwing 4 touchdowns while chucking for 480 yards in week 2.

Running Back

Eagles: LeSean McCoy cuts on the dime like no other, even his Twitter handle says so along with forcing 17 missing tackles so far.

Bears: Matt Forte is loving his expanded role, leading the league in touches, and running with it.

Wide Receiver

Lions: Calvin Johnson is padding a future Hall of Fame resume right before our eyes.

Giants: Victor Cruz just goes about his business with high expectations, this guy is a gem.

Packers: Randall Cobb has no mercy as the go-to guy, someone has created a monster.

Tight End

Saints: Jimmy Graham delivers the back breaker to defenses, and his “Magic Johnson vs. Larry Bird” counterpart Rob Gronkowski is on the mend.

Browns: Jordan Cameron is the entire offense at this point, and he is a weapon even without much help around him.

Offensive Linemen

Eagles: Evan Mathis continues to be the highest graded interior lineman, just ask Shady McCoy about him paving the way to daylight.

Redskins: Trent Williams is the dream blindside tackle to protect a quarterback, he hasn’t allowed a sack or hit in 5 consecutive games dating back to last year.

Defensive Linemen

Texans: J.J. Watt is that damn good, and yes he does command an offense to gameplan for his versatile presence.

Bills: Mario Williams flashed 4.5 sacks in week 2, if this guy keeps active he will live up to all the hype in the nick of time.

Rams: Robert Quinn is relentlessly invading offensive backfields regardless of who’s in front of him, with at least 6 pressures in each game.

Panthers: Star Lotulelei looks like he’s been a veteran defensive tackle for years, just two games into his career.

Linebacker

Panthers: Luke Kuechly was last season’s Defensive Rookie of the Year, now his sights are on Defensive Player of the Year.

Vikings: Chad Greenway shadows the football with ruthless aggression, on pace for another 150 tackles this season.

Defensive Back

Seahawks: Richard Sherman earns the right to soak up the limelight, this guy is in the zone on gameday.

Cardinals: Patrick Peterson is a triple threat to be on the field for any play, and he’s improving his coverage skills by the week.

Special Teamer

Broncos: Trinton Holliday demands attention for his returning skills, it’s awesome when a guy stands out on special teams.

Cowboys: Dan Bailey is working for his paycheck with all these field goals, truly an asset to consider.
