Offense: Stefon Diggs - Without a passing game, we're one-dimensional. and no way does AP get the rushing title.

Defense: Anthony Barr - Personal preference I guess...Kendricks led the team in tackles, but Barr was all over the field in the games I got to see. Couldn't really argue with Linval or Everson as choices here either.

ST: Blair Walsh - Looked very shaky in preseason, missed 4 XPs and a 36 yarder in Denver, but then made 17 FGs in a row. Was 6 of 7 from 40-49, and 6 of 8 from over 50. Won back-to-backs vs CHI and STL, and led the league in FGs overall.

I agree, even though Diggs is tempting to put there. Adrian Peterson helps a lot. Joseph made such a massive difference.

the special teams MVP should be Thielen. yes, Walsh has had a good season but that's what's expected of him as a kicker.

Thielen has been over and above what was expected of him.

If we're thinking of a 2nd ST player, I'm putting Sherels above Thielen.

didn't Thielen have a blocked kick this year? or picked up one and ran with it, at least?

He did that last year. This year, he probably would have had another block but he was in a harness for his shoulder and couldn't fully extend.

Offensive MVP: AP

Defensive MVP: Harry the Hit Man (I would put Linval in, but our pass defense has been our best attribute, not our run defense.)

Special Teams MVP: Waynes (Sherels and Thielen have done some impressive things this year, but I feel Waynes gets to the ball carrier faster than anyone else. Trae has 30 tackles and I feel comfortable saying 20 of those are on special teams).

What i've seen is both Sherels and Waynes are extremely quick. Typically Sherels is the first guy down, and thus occupies both his and the extra blocker, and that frees up Waynes to have a shotgun straighter line to the returner.
