NFL Mid-Season Awards – MVP, Rookie of the year, and that’s just the beginning.



NFL Mid-Season Awards 2018

With most groups having played eight of their aggregate sixteen normal season diversions, it’s an ideal opportunity to give out our mid-season NFL grants.

All things considered, we flickered, and we’re as of now part of the way through the NFL customary season. Thus, how about we rashly give out the finish of-season grants so in two months’ time we can think back about how wrong we were.


  1. Patrick Mahomes QB
Passing Yds Total TDs INTs COMP % QB Rating Win-Loss
2,526 28 6 65.6 115.3 7-1
  1. Todd Gurley RB
  2. Phillip Rivers QB
  3. Drew Brees QB
  4. Kirk Cousins QB

In the event that the MVP was chosen tomorrow, the main players to get votes would be Mahomes and Gurley. The drop-off from those two champions is steep. Both Mahomes and Gurley are poised to have crazy factual seasons. However, the youthful QB pushes out Gurley for the occasion. We’ll check whether he can hold his balance down the stretch. Kirk Cousins may come as a shock to many, however until the development of Latavius Murray, he was conveying the Vikings offense. Cousins and Philip Rivers have gone unnoticed by numerous this year, however they are both playing productive football and winning recreations. Drew Brees has been fiercely effective yet hasn’t been requested to do as much of course.

Offensive Player of the Year

  1. Todd Gurley RB
Rushing Yds Avg. Yds/Carry Total TDs Receiving Yds Rushing Att./G
800 4.7 15 351 21.1
  1. Adam Thielen WR
  2. Michael Thomas WR
  3. Saquon Barkley RB
  4. Alvin Kamara RB

To make this fascinating I’ve left quarterbacks off this rundown. The majority of the players on this rundown have been great. Thielen is unfortunate to not be number 1, but rather on the off chance that he breaks the records he is poised to break, he could jump Gurley. Michael Thomas is setting up himself as the best WR in the amusement, with an alliance driving (among WR’s) pass get rate of 90%. Kamara and Barkley proceed with the pattern of youthful running-backs creating on the ground and through the air. Be that as it may, it’s still Gurley who rules. He is poised to have more aggregate TDs by a running back since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2006.

Defensive Player of the Year

  1. Aaron Donald D
    Tackles Ast. Tackles Sacks Forced Fumb. Games played
    19 10 10.0 1 8
  2. Khalil Mack OLB
  3. JJ Watt DE
  4. Von Miller OLB
  5. Darius Leonard LB

This is the place the principles of this honors framework gets dubious. Donald wins in such a case that the season finished today he would get the honor. He is a standout amongst the most wrecking powers in the alliance, with 10 sacks as of now. Before Mack got injured this season, he was the DPOY. Along these lines, if Mack moves beyond this lower leg damage and begin playing as he did through his initial four recreations, he would be the imaginable DPOY come season’s end. The best four on this rundown are the typical clients. JJ Watt is likewise near Donald and Mack, playing with a retribution throughout the most recent month.

Offensive Rookie of the Year

  1. Saquon Barkley R
    Rushing Yds Avg. Yds/Carry Total TDs Receiving Yds Rushing Att./G
    519 4.7 7 497 13.9
  2. Calvin Ridley WR
  3. Phillip Lindsay RB
  4. Kerryon Johnson RB
  5. Baker Mayfield QB

The freshman QB play has been disillusioning in 2018. The majority of the best QBs in the draft are beginning now and all have been here and there. Mayfield just makes the rundown (and Sam Darnold barely passes up a great opportunity) since they’ve been the most strong, yet both have committed such a large number of new kid on the block compose errors to lead the race. Barkley has been the best player on this rundown by a long shot, however his group is battling. In the event that you consider surging AND getting for running backs, Barkley may be the best in the alliance. Ridley has been a decent WR2 for Matt Ryan and the Falcons. His capacity to score touchdowns puts him high on this rundown. Lindsay has been the unexpected new kid on the block of the year, reviving an unremarkable Broncos offense.

Defensive Rookie of the Year

  1. Darius Leonard LB
    Tackles Ast. Tackles Sacks Forced Fumb. Games Played
    58 30 4.0 3 7
  2. Derwin James S
  3. Denzel Ward CB
  4. Bradley Chubb OLB
  5. Jaire Alexander CB

Darius Leonard has been an astonishment to many, yet he’s driving the alliance in handles and contending in each other class among line-supporters. It’s the guarded side of the ball where the current year’s newbie class is solid. Derwin James has taken order of the Chargers protection. Denzel Ward and Bradley Chubb likely profit by the capacity of their colleagues yet are as yet encouraging players in their very own right. Ward could turn into the association’s best CB one day.

Comeback Player of the Year

  1. Andrew Luck
    Passing Yds Total TDs INTs COMP % QB Rating
    2,187 23 8 65.8 96.2
  2. JJ Watt
  3. Adrian Peterson
  4. Deshaun Watson
  5. Aaron Rodgers

At this phase of the season, Luck’s numbers are excessively extraordinary, making it impossible to disregard for this honor. Additionally considering the profession undermining nature of the damage, his arrival to shape has been significantly more noteworthy. You could contend that Luck is really having his best season ever, absolutely his generally effective. The rise of Peterson has been the greatest amazement, driving the Redskins offense on numerous events. Watson got off to a moderate begin yet has been incredible for the Texans on this five-amusement winning-streak.

Coach of the Year

  1. Andy Reid – KC Chiefs
  2. Sean McVay – LA Rams
  3. Bill Belichick – NE Patriots
  4. Sean Payton – NO Saints
  5. Pete Carroll – SE Seahawks

Like the MVP race, the best two are about indistinguishable. McVay is meriting the honor. Being 8-0 is a demonstration of good instructing regardless of the ability on the field. Reid’s failure to win playoff diversions with the Chiefs is all around promoted, yet something feels distinctive this year. Mahomes’ prosperity is, at any rate to a limited extent, a result of Reid’s hostile virtuoso. This is a genuine hurl up – the edge goes to Reid.

Sixers exchange for Jimmy Butler, finish the procedure



Jimmy Butler

The Minnesota Timberwolves have consented to send All-Star Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Timberwolves have at last gone separate ways with Jimmy Butler. The distinction among Butler and the Timberwolves has been all around pitched, with the inquiry involving when, not if, the grieved star would be exchanged.

The Sixers have consented to send Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a 2022 second-round pick to Minnesota for Jimmy Butler and Justin Patton.

In this way, it’s take two for Jimmy Butler shaping a major three with two promising youthful stars. In 2017 he was moved from the Chicago Bulls to the Timberwolves to connect up with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. At the point when that bargain was done, the Timberwolves were everybody’s dark horse tip to be the following incredible super-group.

That enormous three has been frustrating. In their one season together, they left the playoffs early, tumbling to the Rockets.

In this arrangement, Butler will join Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons in Philly. This move is huge for the Sixers, yet intellectuals are somewhat more careful to exaggerate after what occurred in Minnesota. The b-ball world is currently alert to how troublesome it is for a set up top pick to space in with two more youthful stars – on and off the court.

We’re additionally very much aware of how Butler can bargain out a touch of extreme love to his colleagues, which is the reason Tom Thibodeau felt it important to exchange Butler away for the benefit of the group’s science.

It’ll be fascinating to perceive how Butler’s identity will fit into the Sixers squad. The Sixers is without a doubt Joel Embiid’s group. In what manner will Butler handle that? Will those two alphas have the capacity to exist together? Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz are uninvolved, calm players. Will Butler regard their methodology or arrangement out excessively extreme love, too early?

Then again, the Sixers have appeared via web-based networking media an irresistible group first mindset. Simmons and Embiid’s hold onto of Markelle Fultz as he battles through some developing agonies, has been noteworthy thinking about how youthful they all are. The group ethos ‘Trust the Process’ shows how the players have trust in the association and a faithfulness to the Sixers that has confided in them amid troublesome occasions. On the off chance that Butler purchases in to this mindset, they could have something uncommon.

It’s an intense move for the Sixers, yet one you in the long run need to make in the cutting edge NBA. To win in this group you require something like two all-stars, ideally three or four.

In the event that Butler networks well with the Sixers, they could be the new top choices to meet the Warriors in the NBA finals. If not, the Sixers have surrendered some center pieces, and Butler could sign for another group after a one-season rental. At that point the procedure would need to reboot once more.

The hazard is extraordinary however so are the potential prizes of this arrangement. Sixers fans have persevered through a great deal of misfortunes amid ‘the Process’, however it appears the tide has completely moved. The Process is at long last total – we simply don’t know whether that is something worth being thankful for yet.
