With just two games left in the NFL’s regular season and numerous playoff berths still on the line, we’re seeing everyone’s best. Numerous teams have clinched a playoff spot, but the home-field advantage and divisional titles are still up for grabs in both conferences. Teams will be relying on their top offensive threats to make things happen over the next two weeks. Let’s take a look at some of the league’s top offensive players, as we give you our Offensive Player rankings so you can keep betting against the NFL odds.
NFL Offensive Player Rankings for Week 17 of the 2021/22 Season
1. Aaron Rodgers
What a season Rodgers has had. Many see him as the leading candidate for the NFL MVP award. Rodgers has led Green Bay to a 12-3 record, which is currently the best record in the NFL. Although he has one of the league’s top receivers in Davante Adams, Rodgers isn’t necessarily surrounded by top-notch playmakers. With that being said, he has still had a tremendous season. He has thrown for 3,689 yards with 33 touchdowns. And believe it or not, he’s done all this while only throwing four interceptions on the season. Rodgers is the most dangerous weapon in the league at this time, and even with a limited offensive arsenal, he can still lead the Packers to the Super Bowl.
2. Cooper Kupp
Kupp should be thrilled that Sean McVay made the deal to bring Matthew Stafford to the Rams. Kupp was good even before Stafford arrived, but he has only gotten better since his arrival. Kupp is having an astronomical season for the Rams. He has 132 catches for 1,734 yards. He’s averaging 13.1 yards per catch, and teams have yet to figure out how to stop him. He has only had five games where he had less than 100 yards receiving, and in four of those, he was in the nineties.
3. Jonathan Taylor
After a slow start to the season, the Indianapolis Colts weren’t sure that a playoff run was in their future. However, Jonathan Taylor and the running game took over, and the Colts came back to life and are now in the thick of the playoff race. Taylor has carried the ball 297 times for 1,626 yards this season. He has scored 17 touchdowns. We also can’t forget that Taylor is also a threat out of the backfield, as he has 36 receptions this season. Since Derrick Henry’s injury, Taylor has taken over as the best running back in the league.
4. Josh Allen
Allen can do it all, he can run and throw. He has led the Bills back to the top of the AFC North with a huge victory over New England last Sunday. Allen has thrown for over 4000 yards this season with 34 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. He has also rushed for over 600 yards this season with four touchdowns on the ground. Allen has come a long way since his rookie season. Teams don’t know how to prepare for him as he can hurt you with the pass or with his running skills.
