Offensive PotY: RB Matt Forte
Criminally underappreciated throughout the league (even the Bears front office. Pay the man!), Forte does it all running, receiving, and blocking. When all is said and done, Forte may be mentioned in the same conversation as Gayers and Payton.

Defensive PotY: CB Kyle Fuller
The young gun entered the year with a bang, picking off Colin Kaepernick numerous times early in the season before coaching ineptitudes and injuries slowed him down. Expect him to bounce back with a new coaching staff that knows what defense is.

Rookie otY: WR Kevin White
The Bears feature elite pass catchers in Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, it's only natural that Kevin White will find a lot of room to work with, as opposed to college.

FA Signing otY: OLB Pernell McPhee
The biggest free agent signing of the year for the Bears this year, McPhee brings a violent attitude off the edge. Expect him to be the team leader in Sacks as the DLine occupies blockers for him.

Offensive poty:
WR Josh Gordon
With Manziel under center Flash gordon is very important to help his development.

Defensive poty:
OLB Barkevius Mingo
Mingo looked amazing in preseason practice and head to head games, expecting big things from him!

Roty:
NT Danny Shelton
Shelton helped anchor Coach Nike in to running a 3-4 over a 4-3, Coach Nike is very excited to see this!

FAoty:
TE Ben Hartsock
With Jordan Cameron departing for Miami there is a huge gap at TE with Hartsock expecting to split first team snaps with Rookie former USC TE Randall Telfer and Gary Barnidge.

Offensive Poty: Russel Wilson
With the addition of Jimmy Graham and having one of the leagues premiere backs in "Beast Mode" Wilson is poised to armed with weapons to help him succeed.

Defensive Poty: Earl Thomas
Already established as an elite safety in the league and being surrounded by a stacked defensive core Earl Thomas is setup to have an amazing season.

Rookie Poty: Tyler Lockett
Not much of an offensive role has been set for this young receiver but as far as his Kick and Punt return abilities are concerned I say best keep it out of #16's hands

Free Agent Oty: Robert Meachem
This veteran will add to an already good offense and be a good target for deep yardage

Offensive PotY: RB Le'Veon Bell

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yes, this is a passing league and success in this year's game seems to be heavily dependent on how well your QB plays and the Steelers have one of the better ones behind center.  The Steelers offense also features one of the best playmakers at WR, however, in a Steel Rooney run team success starts and ends with the ability to run the ball.  Le'Veon Bell can tote the rock 25-30 times if needed, he can catch it out of the backfield, he can grind out yards or break away for the big play.  Look for the third year back to have a big year.

Defensive PotY: DE Cameron Heyward

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Steelers secondary is suspect at best.  The LB core, outside of Lawrence Timmons, is either over the hill, young and inexperienced or a place holder for the first round draft pick.  With that said, the strength in the trenches and the Steelers will call upon their DL to shutdown the run as well as get pressure on the QB to help the back end.  Heyward is the best of that bunch.

Rookie of the Year: OLB Bud Dupree

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Don't look for many rookies to see quality game time reps from the Steelers.  If there is one who might find his way on the field for quality reps it will be First Round draft pick OLB Bud Dupree.  The Steelers need Dupree to display the athleticism and explosiveness that made him a first round pick if they want to put the kind of pressure on teh QB they will need to mask a suspect secondary.  Arthor Moats is a serviceable option but he is just holding the fort until Dupree gets up to speed which needs to happen sooner rather than later.

Free Agent Signing of the Year: None (if forced to pick - OLB James Harrison)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Steelers did not make any significant signings this offseason in terms of signing players from other teams.  Their biggest acquisition was CB Brandon Boykin via trade.  If forced to make a pick, the only relevant free agent signing was really the re-signing of one of our own in OLB James Harrison who is temporarily holding down the starting job until Coach Tomlin is comfortable enough to hand over the reigns to former first round draft pick OLB Jarvis Jones (or until Owner Steel Rooney intervenes and "suggests" making the switch).

Offensive POTY: WR Jarvis Landry
- Jarvis will likely be the steady hands & go-to-guy in the slot for the Dolphin offense. Jarvis is eager to prove he's the next young LSU WR that should be considered as talented as his buddy Odell Beckham 

Defensive POTY: DT Ndamakong Suh
- Suh's lofty contract brings lofty expectations. Suh needs to continue to be a dominant force vs the run & bring added value as a dependable pass rusher. And hopefully no more dirty antics such as unnecessary roughing the passer, stomping people's calves, stomping people's testicles, kicking Alfred Morris' helmet off his head, etc. etc. etc. 

Rookie Of the Year: WR Devante Parker
- Parker has already flashed signs of brilliance in the early going for Miami showing he was worthy of a mid-1st round pick. Parker & Landry could become quite the talented duo for Ryan Tannehill. 

FA Of The Year: OLB Keith Rivers
- Miami brings in veteran OLB Rivers to add some juice & depth to their LB ranks.

Fan Of The Year: QB Wife Lauren Tannehill 
- I mean, come on, it wasnt gonna be Yennifer Lopez.

Offensive PotYQB Philip Rivers
More weapons than ever at his disposal. 

Defensive PotYCB Brandon Flowers
Eric Weddle was the easy choice, but Flowers can hold his own against elite WRs. 

Rookie otYRB Melvin Gordon
The passing attack will open up lanes for Gordon. Woodhead will definitely vulture some touches though. 

FA Signing otYWR Jeff Janis
The quickest WR on the team will rotate into 3 WR sets with Stevie Johnson.

Offensive PotY: RB Bishop Sankey Gets the lions share of the carries on  a young offense.

Defensive PotY: OLB Avery Williamson Moving from the Middle to the Outside, he leads the team in tackles and TFL

Rookie otY: WR Dorial Green-Beckham 6'5" WRs dont grow on trees, speed and hands, this could be a special pass catcher.

FA Signing otY: CB Alfonzo Dennard Slots in nicely as a nickel corner with room to grow, and the Bears didnt get him.

Offensive PotY: Arian Foster, RB
He has been the center of the offense for the past few years due to his terrific running and pass catching ability. He will continue to be relied on to generate offense.


Defensive PotY: JJ Watt, RE
Unstoppable force since coming to the league. Looks to continue his dominance and help turn the defense into a Super Bowl caliber group.


Rookie otY: Jaelen Strong, WR
Solid rookie who looks to establish himself as a reliable slot receiver.


FA Signing otY: David Fales, QB
Originally slated to only be a backup, he was thrusted into the starting position for week 4 due to terrible play from Ryan Mallett. He brings more consistency and the accuracy needed to lead a team to the playoffs.

Offensive PotYTeddy Bridgewater, QB
With AP back no one benefits more than Teddy Touchdowns.  He looks to take the reigns on an offense loaded with speed.

Defensive PotYEverson Griffen, DE
Looking to be a force off the edge, if the front 4 can generate the pressure they should be able to, a very deep secondary should be licking their chops.  Griffen will definitely give LT's all they can handle.

Rookie otY: Eric Kendricks, MLB
With 1st round pick Trey Waynes down in the depth chart on a deep secondary, Kendricks looks to make an impact on a weaker LB core.  His speed and tackling will look to make a difference on the 2nd level.

FA Signing otYTim Tebow, QB
While he may not get much playing time, no one fires up the troops more than Pastor Tim.  With Jesus on their side, the Vikings look to make a deep run in the playoffs.  If they don't, does that mean there is no God?
