    The seemingly more prestigious Best NFL Player award will feature RB Ezekiel Elliott going up against , , , and . This list is fantastic company for Zeke to be in entering year two, as it features both quarterbacks that competed in LI, the consensus most talented QB in the league and passer responsible for ending Dallas' season, and a dominant rusher in Mack.
