The secret superstars on every NFL roster - Sam Monson
Brown had an impressive rookie season, and was even better outside of two poor games against Oakland (Week 5) and Atlanta (Week 7), two of the league’s most high-octane offenses. In coverage, he tallied five pass breakups over the season and recorded 29 defensive stops overall. Brown also recorded four sacks and 10 total pressures on the blitz.

Keenan Allen will win NFL Comeback Player of the Year - Travis Wakeman
So if Allen is at 100 percent and still has that chemistry with Philip Rivers, he is going to catch a bunch of passes. If he can get back to the way he was playing prior to being injured during that 2015 season, he can—and likely would—win the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Los Angeles Chargers: Expectations for Travis Benjamin in 2017 - Derek Snyder
In my opinion, he could have 50 receptions and over 800 all-purpose yards. Touchdowns are such an unpredictable stat, so it’s not fair to give a receiver a touchdown expectation. That being said, he must have 50 or more catches if the Chargers want to use him wisely.

AFC West Q&A: Is the Derek Carr-Khalil Mack combo the best in the division? - Paul Gutierrez
Rivers and Bosa should be part of the conversation, but it’s hard to argue against Carr and Mack being the most lethal combination of offensive and defensive players in the AFC West. Carr continues to evolve and develop his game. The Fresno State product has been particularly impressive in the clutch.

2017 Patriots Foes to Fear, No. 5: Chargers' Melvin Gordon gunning for Pro Bowl encore - Hector Longo
The No. 5 player on our “2017 Patriots Foes to Fear” list ripped through the NFL in 2016, shredding teams on the ground with 997 yards on 254 carries, and in the passing game with 41 catches for 419 yards. And he did that in a season shortened three games by a strained PCL in his left knee.
