Buzz Poll: Assess the 2016 NFL season with our latest questions

dak-prescott-ezekiel-elliott-2016-panini-infinity

The regular season is now over in the NFL and that means one thing — we now have final stats.

Ok, ok … it also means the playoffs.

But for many rookies and players who are important in the hobby and may not be playing this weekend, those final stats are one way to assess whether we should continue to sink our dollars into their cards. Two rookies of note in 2016, Dallas’ Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, will still be playing and they lead off our first of 13 Buzz Poll questions all about the NFL this year.

Sunday Superstars: Week 5 notables include Ezekiel Elliott, Tom Brady, T.Y. Hilton, Sammie Coates & more

elliott

While there might be a quarterback controversy brewing in The Big D, there’s no doubting who the top RB is for the Dallas Cowboys after a 30-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

It’s Ezekiel Elliott and his 134-yard, two-touchdown day has cemented him as one of the front-runners among rookies this season — on a historic level, too.

According to Elias, his 546 rushing yards this season are the fifth-best total in NFL history for the first five games of a player’s career. The only better starts are Eric Dickerson (645 yards), Adrian Peterson (607), Todd Gurley (575) and Billy Sims (560). That’s not bad company — and that’s good news for Elliott’s cardboard given how Gurley looked last year.

So, who gets the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award?

CooperThe biggest driver on football cards these days is the Rookie Card and now that the regular season is over most of those big-name newcomers are done for the year.

So, naturally, that makes us wonder who get the Rookie of the Year nod? We’ll focus on offense since it matters the most when it comes to cards. (On defense Buzz thinks it will probably go to Kansas City’s Marcus Peters, who tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions and two TDs.)

But on offense it’s not as easy.

David Johnson, Josh Norman & Danny Woodhead among NFL’s most Buzz-worthy players in Week 15

David-Johnson-Playbook

It doesn’t take much for a running back to establish himself quickly these days — and it doesn’t take much for one to fade into obscurity, either — but one started that two-part journey with a big arrival game of sorts under the Sunday Night Football spotlight.

It’s Arizona’s David Johnson, who ran for a league-leading 187 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-17 win over the Eagles.

It was his third straight week of 92 yards or more but he’d gone scoreless in those other games, leaving him off Buzz’s radar — also probably since he’s a Cardinal, not on a team that gets much hobby attention. You can find his RCs throughout this year’s NFL lineup from Panini America and Topps. For the season, he has 517 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
