This article talks about the MVP race and who is the most invaluable player to their team. They mention so many players, but leave out D-Will. He gets no respect. It's really frustrating.
The article mentions Jared Allen. He has 10.5 sacks. He got 7 of them in two games against the Pack, and only 3.5 in the other 8 games. Darren Sharper is listed, 7 picks and 3 TDs, but the defense also has Vilma and the offense has to come from behind almost every game it seems. Steven Jackson and Maurice-Jones Drew are listed. Jackson is averaging fewer yards per carry and has half the TDs as D-Will for the last place Rams. MJD has fewer yards on 13 more carries, and averages .6 fewer yards per carry than D-Will. I can be honest and give all these guys credit where it's due, because all of them are having great seasons, but it seems that D-Will is just being ignored. He's averaging 5.4 yards per carry and almost 100 yards per game. He has at least 3 carries of 50 yards or more. I just want to see D-Will get the credit he deserves. He never gets mentioned for Ground Player of the Week, even when he ran for 149 yards and 2 TDs, and he never gets mentioned in the argument of the NFL's best RB that includes Chris Johnson and AP, the league leader in fumbles and the 2nd most important player on his team. With the emergence of Sydney Rice, and the play of Allen and Favre, it's hard to say he is more valuable in Minnesota than D-Will in Carolina. The Pro Bowl vote is a popularity contest. I know fantasy football leaguers know how dominant he is, but he gets no mention from the supposed experts. It's really irritating.
