We ranked the NFL's skill-position players and kickers from 1 to 425, based on our projections of their statistical production this season. The categories considered were scoring (touchdowns, field goals, extra points), long scoring plays (25 yards or more), big-game potential (300 yards passing or 100 yards rushing or receiving) and passing efficiency. We also took into account each player's statistics from previous seasons, as well as his role on his current team, his potential for improvement and his injury history. Below are our ratings by position along with each PVR.
