Quite a bit of movement after the short week hiatus. Two huge names fall all the way out (Doug Martin and Mike Williams) while the bottom five are rounded out with players trying to make an impact for the future.

Rank Player Synopsis Change
1 Gerald McCoy It’s getting to the point where it feels like he’s being wasted. Contract coming up soon. -
2 Darrelle Revis Let him cover people, please! -
3 Lavonte David If he doesn’t make the Pro Bowl, it should no longer exist. -
4 Vincent Jackson The only weapon left on sad offensive unit. ↑4
5 Donald Penn Quietly having a nice year, too bad no one will ever notice.
6 Demar Dotson Working himself into the future long-term plans in Tampa. ↑8
7 Mason Foster Continuing to play well, but not great yet. ↓1
8 Dekoda Watson Remember when we debated him against Casillas? ↓1
9 Dashon Goldson Since the few fines, he hasn’t been as effective. ↓1
10 Carl Nicks Health not an excuse any more. The new excuse is the QB and RB behind him -
11 Akeem Spence Hopefully he can be this good next year. ↑1
12 Adrian Clayborn I still want more, but I think I’m being irrational now. ↑1

14 Mike James Showing that he can become a legit backup for Martin in the future. ↑11
15 Tim Wright Someone has to catch passes, he’s been there to do it. ↑2
16 Leonard Johnson When Schiano says you are playing well, I think you stink, fair or not. ↑1
17 Davin Joseph The offensive line is not the problem. ↑5
18 Johnthan Banks Still a rookie, deserves a full year to learn. -
19 Mark Barron Not a good year, we need much more next year. ↓10
20 Brian Leonard He’s been graded out well, but he’s not going to be here when the games count again. ↑5
21 Jeremy Zuttah The offensive line is not the problem. ↓2
22 Jonathan Casillas Will be a nice 4th man in the LB corps moving forward. ↑2
23 Michael Adams Not sure about his future. Could be a cleaning house causalty. ↑3
