1) Chris Lindstrom (RG)
If you have not been paying very close attention to both of the Atlanta Falcons games then you might assume Lindstrom has played bad – nothing could be further from the truth.
Much like Jake Matthews, it is a thing of nightmares to wonder what would happen to Matt Ryan without either one of them in the lineup. They are the only two linemen that the offense can consistently count on.
The fact that Chris is playing as well as he is despite everything that is happening on both sides of him, is simply incredible. He has more than shown his worth of being a first-round pick.
He has to deal with having blockers next to him that can hardly handle the defenders consistently.
It is far from Lindstrom’s fault that Matt Ryan has almost been killed during the first couple of weeks, if he continues to play like this he could end up being one of the best in the entire league before we know it.
There may not be a more impressive two performances by another player in the NFL when you take everything into account.
