If They Gave Out Awards in the Preseason (wk3-wk4)

awardIf they gave out awards in the preseason, I think that there are a few players that should be on the receiving end of one. I understand that it’s only the preseason, but I don’t think that it should take away the success that these players are having. Of course not all players on the first team are on the field at the same time, and I can see why that could take away from these performances. The reason I’m not going to use that to knock or raise the performance value is that the players I’m going to highlight are not at the same caliber as those who also play their position. Therefore, these players are raising their individual stock as a sleeper pick in 2013.

Here is the list of top performers in the preseason during the last 2 weeks:
