ESPN put together a ranking of the top 100 players of the 2018 season. As you may know , the 2018 season hasn’t happened yet. Those who were asked to participate in the poll were asked to predict who the best players of the upcoming season will be. The players were rated on a scale of 1-100 on each list then those ranks were averaged for the final piece and per the rules past performance and positional value were not considered — “only greatness this season.”Three members of the New York Giants made the list, but the amount of players doesn’t necessarily correlate with team quality. 15 teams had at least three players on the list, but the New England Patriots have two.It shouldn’t be particularly hard to guess the three Giants who appear on the list, so let’s get to them.Odell Beckham, No. 11Beckham, recipient of a nice new contract, is predictably the highest Giant on the list and one of the top players rated overall. However, he’s just the third wide receiver on the list behind Antonio Brown (4) and Julio Jones (. He’s also two spots behind a player he’ll likely see quite a bit of in Week 1, Jalen Ramsey of the Jacksonville Jaguars (9).Some Giants bias might cause some reading this currently to believe this is a little low for one of the most exciting players in the league, but it’s a pretty fair ranking. There could be an argument made to shift around much of the top 5-12 players listed, so seeing Beckham come in at 11 isn’t too far off.Landon Collins, No. 60Collins is the fifth of five safeties to make the list. He’s behind Harrison Smith (25) , Earl Thomas (28), Eric Berry (36), and Malcolm Jenkins (56).These rankings might make a little more sense if everyone is expected to play a full season and at full health. Of the four safeties in front of Collins, one is not in camp, one is coming off an Achilles tear, and the other will turn 31 this season, though Jenkins is still playing at a high level. Collins should have the best case to rise up these rankings following up last year’s “down” season with an active role in James Bettcher’s defense, which should move the fourth-year safety all around the defense.Saquon Barkley, No. 87Barkley was the only rookie to make this list, which makes sense as a high draft pick with clear projected volume. 10 running backs made the list, the fourth most at a position behind quarterback, wide receiver Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , and defensive end, each of which had 14 players. Running back was also tied with corner at 10.Eight running backs were listed ahead of Barkley: Le’Veon Bell (7), Todd Gurley (13), Ezekiel Elliott (15), David Johnson (27), Alvin Kamara (30), Kareem Hunt (52), Melvin Gordon (72), and Devonta Freeman (74). Dalvin Cook (94) is the back who made the list just behind Barkley.This ranking is probably based on not knowing where to put a rookie running back on the list. If Barkley is going to live up to expectations of the second overall pick, he’ll put up numbers that put him at least in the Johnson-Kamara range of players. SnubsOf course it’s not easy to predict who the top-100 players of an upcoming season is going to be, but it shouldn’t be too hard to predict Damon Harrison is going to have another great season. Snacks continues to be consistently underrated — a reminder he’s never been to a Pro Bowl — and he doesn’t make the cut here with seven defensive tackles listed. Those who did make the list do have more value as pass rushers, but Harrison has added in some quarterback pressure since coming to the Giants while being an unstoppable force in the middle against the run. Around the divisionThe Philadelphia Eagles tied the New Orleans Saints with most players listed (7). Winning a Super Bowl will have that effect. Five Dallas Cowboys were listed Womens Janoris Jenkins Jersey , three on the offensive line — though Zack Martin (38) is recovering from a knee injury and Travis Frederick’s (61) status is unknown after being diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome. Washington had three players listed, but none in the top-70 — Trent Williams (73), Josh Norman (83), and Alex Smith (97). The Giants offense found a big play in the first half of Sunday’s game, but they weren’t able to turn it into any points.Odell Beckham had a 44-yard catch and the Giants drove the ball inside the red zone in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, but the latest error by quarterback Eli Manning kept them off the board. Manning’s attempt to hit Barkley in the middle of the field was thwarted by Washington safety D.J. Swearinger for an interception that kept the Bears up 7-0.The Giants would get the ball back once more before the end of the half and Manning had more success on throws to Beckham and Shepard to move the team into position for an Aldrick Rosas field goal. That cut Washington’s lead to 7-3 after the first 30 minutes of play.In addition to scoring the game’s only touchdown on a seven-yard catch, Adrian Peterson also picked up 26 rushing yards in the first half. That moved him past Tony Dorsett into ninth place in NFL history in rushing yards.The longest of Peterson’s gains was an 11-yard run and the longest play for Washington all half was a 16-yard pass to Maurice Harris as it was a half of efficient ball movement for Washington rather than a string of big plays. That was enough to get them into scoring position twice, but the second trip ended without any points because Dustin Hopkins missed a 41-yard field goal.With both teams missing out on chances to add points in the first half, the game will likely be decided by whoever does a better job of maximizing opportunities the rest of the way.
