How does anyone get paid to make a list like that? 🤦‍♂️

It's not a list made by a journalist.  These are the players themselves ranking the players.

1) Mahomes
2) LJAX
3) Donald
4) Russell

5) Kittle

 

LJAX at 1 is fine because he's the MVP and it'll get clicks, but it's deliberately disingenuous. 

 

The order the players are ranked has nothing to do with clicks.  This list is made by the players based on their votes.  Always has been.

And players are notoriously subjective, reactionary and poor predictors of future performance.  Josh Norman was once # 11 on this list.  Blake Bortles was once # 56.

A running back that threw for 36 TDs?

It's incredible how many people think Josh Allen when they think about Lamar Jackson.

He's a very underrated thrower.  An excellent QB who happens to be an excellent runner.

The point is, he’s not the best player in the league. He’s damn close and had the best regular season in the league last year, but a league MVP and a SB MVP in consecutive years to start a career beats that.

Preaching to the choir on this one.  Its Mahomes for sure.  I'm cool with Lamar being # 2 or 3 (behind Wilson).

I just read that this poll was done in November, when BAL was on a 9-2 tear and Mahomes was just coming back from him injury.  That explains a lot of why the ranking is what it is, but exposes a definite flaw in the process that they do it mid-season.

Very true.  How can you do a "best player in 2020" poll without all the information?
