The stat and film review junkies at Pro Football Focus have put together their midseason list for NFL MVP candidates and Fred Jackson has cracked the top 3.
Here’s the take of the folks at PFF on Fred.
3. Fred Jackson, HB, Buffalo Bills
An third place finish for Jackson, who has done more for the Bills than anyone could have imagined. Jackson is the most elusive back in the league having already forced 32 missed tackles and picking up 3.8 yards after contact.
Pro Football Focus only has Aaron Rodgers and Darrelle Revis ahead of him on the list. Knowing how rare it is for a defensive player to win the MVP, one could argue that only Rodgers stands in Jackson’s way if he continues to produce in the fashion that he has through the first seven games. I’m just happy to see him ahead of Tom Brady.
