Week 1 NFL Review

For the 2017 NFL season, I chose 10 players to watch weekly and give you guys my in-depth thoughts and stats. I didn’t use a randomizer website or anything like that just chose some players with some cool stories coming into the season, rookies and just some young up and coming players.

Dalvin Cook the 41st pick in the 2017 NFL draft plays Runningback for the Minnesota Vikings. The reason I chose him is that he was a 2nd round pick and is supposed to get a lot of touches this year. Let’s check out his stats for his first game:

Attempts: 22
Rushing Yards: 127
Receptions: 3
Receiving Yards: 10

Jamal Adams the 6th pick in the 2017 NFL draft plays Safety for the New York Jets. The reason I chose him is that he made a comment saying “The football field would be the perfect place to die.” With the CTE studies that came out not too long ago this cause a lot of controversies. Let’s check out his stats for his rookie season opener:

Solo Tackles: 1
Assisted Tackles: 4
Passes Defended: 1

Takkarist McKinley the 26th pick in the 2017 NFL draft plays Defensive End for the Atlanta Falcons. The reason I chose him is that on draft he was almost fined for dropping the F-bomb on stage. He brought a picture of his grandma upon the stage who unfortunately passed away Let’s check out his stats for his rookie season opener:

Solo Tackles: 1
Assisted Tackles: 1

Zay Jones the 37th pick in the 2017 NFL draft plays Wide Reciever for the Buffalo Bills. The reason I chose him is that he is listed as the Bills #1 Reciever for now. Sammy Watkins was traded unexpectedly. Jordan Matthews who will be the #1 is injured. Let’s check out his stats for his rookie season opener:

Receptions: 1
Receiving Yards: 21

John Ross the 9th pick in the 2017 NFL draft plays Wide Reciever for the Cincinnati Bengals. The reason I chose him is that he broke the record for the fastest 40-yard dash time of all time beating Chris Johnson. He was questionable with a knee injury and didn’t play the game.

Jameis Winston/Desean Jackson could be one of the best QB/WR duos in the league. The reason I chose these players is that Desean Jackson is a veteran and Jameis Winston is still young. This game was rescheduled because of Hurricane Irma. R.I.P to the victims.

Marshawn Lynch aka Beast Mode the 9,000 rushing yard Runningback is back! The reason I chose him is that he retired for the 2016 season and suddenly came back to play for his hometown team Oakland Raiders. Let’s check out his stats in his team debut:

Attempts: 18
Rushing Yards: 76
Receptions: 1
Receiving Yards: 16

Vernon Hargreaves III the 2nd year Cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had 76 tackles last season and is expecting way more this season. The reason I chose him is that he is a young up and coming Corner. This game was rescheduled because of Hurricane Irma. R.I.P to the victims.

Eli Apple young Cornerback out of Ohio State moved into the Corner 2. spot behind veteran Janoris Jenkins. The Reason I chose him is that he is another young player making his way into the league. Let’s check out his stats:

Solo Tackles: 5
Assisted Tackles: 2
Passes Defended: 1

Joey Bosa the leader of the horrible Charger’s defense. I can see Bosa stepping up his game and making the Pro-Bowl this season. Had a very good season last season. The reason I chose him is that he played for Ohio State and I have high expectations for him. Let’s check out his stats for the game:

Solo Tackles: 3
Assisted Tackles: 3
Sacks: 1.5
