NFL Awards Watch: Midseason
3. Jimmy Graham, TE, New Orleans Saints: With apologies to Rob Gronkowski, Calvin Johnson and others, Jimmy Graham is the biggest mismatch in the NFL right now. Despite playing through injuries, Graham leads the NFL in touchdowns, is 10th in catches and fifth in yards ... and he plays tight end. Even on one foot, he's better than the guy trying to cover him and if he can stay healthy, the single-season touchdown record for tight ends (17) is in play, as is the overall single-season mark (23).
3. Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers: He'll move up this list if the Packers can stay in the playoff hunt without Aaron Rodgers. No one has faced more injury-related adversity than Green Bay, yet they're still tied for the lead in one of the best divisions in football.
