17 touchdown, 2,321 passing yards, 100.9% QB rating, and only 3 interceptions. And he's also playing on a team with one of the worst defense, and the teams record is 6-2! He has definitely improved since 2014. In my opinion, he is starting to be one of the best Quarterbacks in the league.

Marcus Peters, already considered one of the best corners in the league with 5 interceptions this year (13 in total) in only 2 years! He is also a solid tackler, with 34 in total this year so far. He's a great cover corner, and he usually shuts down number 1 receivers of the opposing teams.

2,980 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, 119% QB rating, and 4 interception. NFL reporters predict that he is the one to win MVP, and suppose to break records this year. He and WR Julio Jones are producing huge numbers, to make the Falcons 6-3. He is my number 1 player to win MVP, and he deserves it for being one of the better Quarterbacks this decade.

4

Von Miller, LB for the Denver Broncos

Von Miller, LB for the Denver Broncos

There hasn't been many defensive players who had won MVP, but you could make a strong case for Von Miller. One of the best pass rusher in the game, and he already has 8.5 sacks. Many quarterbacks are scared of him, and Von is part of one of the best defenses in the league. He's also great at stopping the run, with 33 tackles this season.

970 yards receiving, 19 yards per catch, and 5 touchdowns. Ever since he came back from his injury in 2013, he has been one of the NFL's most dominant wide receivers. For someone that is 6'3 " he is very fast, so it's very hard to cover Julio. He's currently leading the NFL in receiving yards.

10

Matthew Stafford, QB for the Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford, QB for the Detroit Lions

2,373 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. The stats might not seem as good as all of the other candidates, but the reason why the he is one of the better Quarterbacks in the league is because he always kept his team in the game. He had many comebacks, and every game the lions played, it was decided by a touchdown. And this is coming from a team that was projected to have the top 10 draft pick! That's impressive.
