So who are the hot players these days?
RBs: Chris Henry ran for two thousand yards a couple of years ago. Adrian Peterson is the second coming of Jim Brown -- a power back with very good speed and great burst.
WRs: Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson, Santana Moss, Reggie Wayne.
Defensive players-- there are only a few name defenders in the NFL. Darelle Revis is definitely one -- a shutdown cornerback with swagger aplenty. Ray Lewis is as ferocious a linebacker as I've seen; Patrick Willis is also an outstanding backer. Haloti Ngata is just a ridiculously dominant defensive tackle. And then there's Ed Reed, a future Hall of Famer at free safety.
Scary fact: Reed, Lewis, and Ngata are on the same team. (Baltimore, if you're curious.)
