WR Davante Adams

A remarkable 12 times Adams was a Baller this season. Three of those times, he was the Top Baller, including each of the final two weeks of the season. He led the league in receiving touchdowns (14) and finished the season third in the league in receiving yards (1516), setting a franchise record with eight 100-yard receiving games.

DE Maxx Crosby

Crosby was a Baller ten times this season and four times a Top Baller. And not once was a Buster. He was the only player on the defense that was consistently elite. The result was leading the league in tackles for loss (22), leading all edge rushers in tackles (88) and run stops (44), second in the league in QB hits (35), and third in pressures (81).

RB Josh Jacobs

The league’s rushing title holder, Jacobs was a Baller eight times, with half of those (four) being Top Ballers. He finished with 1653 yards on the season which was more than 100 yards ahead of runner-up Derrick Henry.

WR Mack Hollins

Eight times a Baller and a Top Baller once. Along with his career-best receiving season, he did great work as a blocker and a special teams gunner.

DE Chandler Jones

A slow start to the season gave way to a strong second half. In total, he was a Baller five times and was Top Baller three weeks in a row from Weeks 13-15.

K Daniel Carlson

Four times a Baller, but outstanding throughout the season, including hitting a record 11 field goals from outside 50 yards.

P AJ Cole

Thrice a Baller, which is pretty good for the guy no one wants to see. His 43.8 net yards per punt was a career-high. He had just one touchback all season while pinning the opponent inside the 20-yard line 26 times.

Honorable Mention

CB Tyler Hall — Joined the team midseason and showed some great instincts and playmaking ability, earning him three Baller nods and one Top Baller.

FB Jakob Johnson — Fullbacks don’t get a lot of pub, but he made some huge blocks to help spring Jacobs this season.

G Dylan Parham — A rough start while bouncing around to three different positions, but by midseason, he had found his footing and finished strong, thrice a Baller in the final eight games.
