J.J. Watt Named Pro Football Focus' No. 1 Player Yet Again

New, comments

Just in time for your weekly helping of praise for J.J. Watt, ProFootballFocus.com has (once again) named #99 the best player in the NFL. Drink it up, Texans fans. We might never see another beast like this again.

In what seems like an annual tradition at this point.  J.J. Watt has been named Pro Football Focus’ Player of the Year for the third season in a row. Here are just a few of the kind words that PFF had to say about Watt in their write-up for the award.

The bottom line is that J.J. Watt is still improving, evolving, and developing into one of the greatest players the game has ever seen. His numbers across the board are ludicrous, posting more combined hits and sacks than Sheldon Richardson, Muhammad Wilkerson, Calais Campbell and Fletcher Cox combined, for example, and he remains the best player in football, and the top player on the PFF Top 101. Now for a third year running.

At this point is anyone even remotely shocked by Watt’s dominance of the postseason award circuit? I, for one, am not. If you could ever make a case for a player being bound for the Hall of Fame after just four seasons, J.J. Watt is probably it.
