In the NFL we often hear of who is the best player or who is doing well, but what does it mean to be the best at your position? Today at Bull City we will take a look at the players who are arguably the best in the game at their position. Some may be disputable and others are not.
We aren’t talking fantasy points, we are talking production. I get arguments all the time and most people are talking about what people did for their fantasy team. That’s all fine and good but because a man ran 3 touchdowns from the one yard line and has 27 carries for 29 yards doesn’t make them the best at their position.
Before you call me biased let me be the first to state that there isn’t one player on the list from either of my two teams that I follow. I let the numbers and players respect for the players speak for me on this one.
Take a look at the list:
OL – Steve Hutchinson – Minnesota Vikings
Hutchinson is the real deal. He makes the running game for the Vikings go. He did the same when he was in Seattle and Sean Alexander was running crazy on the entire league. Hutchinson rarely if ever gets beat and rarely blows an assignment. He is the quintessential offensive lineman in the league.
TE – Antonio Gates – San Diego Chargers
Gates is the new standard of tight ends in the league. Year after year he just produces. He will have to battle to hold on to his best title but he has done very well for a man who didn’t play football in college. He should be looking over his shoulder though since Dallas Clark, Vernon Davis, and a slew of young tight ends are gaining ground.
