by CO1ONELSAND3RS | 3 months ago | 4 Comments

With Season 39 under wraps, let’s take a look at the players who make up the All-MBL Team:

Quarterback:

QB: Cam Newton, Detroit Lions

            300/457, 65.6%, 5076 yards, 11.1 YPT, 34 TDs, 13 INTs, 114.7 Passer Rating

Newton played above and beyond this season. The MVP Candidate threw for an MBL best 5,076 yards, the only player to throw for over 5,000 yards in MBL Season 39.

Halfback:

HB 1: Nyheim Hines, Miami Dolphins

            138 rushes, 1462 yards, 10.6 YPC, 19 20+ yard runs, 13 Broken Tackles, 17 TDs

HB 2: Saquon Barkley, New York Giants

            240 rushes, 1413 yards, 5.9 YPC, 15 20+ yard runs, 33 Broken Tackles, 19 TDs

Hines was the MBL MVP of Season 39 and it showed, as he rushed for an MBL best 1,462 yards, while rushing for a whopping 10.6 yards per carry. Barkley was not far behind, and he broke an MBL best 33 tackles, along with 19 TDs.

Wide Receivers:

WR 1: Deandre Hopkins, Detroit Lions

            80 catches, 1492 yards, 18.7 YPC, 15 TDs

WR 2: Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

            66 catches, 1347 yards, 20.4 YPC, 16 TDs

Flex: Curtis Samuel, Tennessee Titans

            85 catches, 1605 yards, 18.9 YPC, 13 TDs

These receivers were outstanding this season. Samuel led MBL with 85 receptions and 1,605 receiving yards. Hill was able to find the end zone for an MBL best 16 times, while Hopkins was all-around the best WR this season.

Tight End:

TE: Bucky Hodges, New Orleans Saints

            73 catches, 1343 yards, 18.4 YPC, 10 TDs

No other TE compared to Bucky Hodges in MBL Season 39, as he was able to utilize his side and speed mismatch to make plays every week.

Tackles:

Tackle: Jake Rubin, New York Jets

            4 sacks, 16 games played, 701 downs

Tackle: Quenton Nelson, Indianapolis Colts

            7 sacks, 16 games played, 795 downs

Both these tackles paved the way for their teams’ offense, setting the edge and keeping their QBs upright and untouched.

Interior Offensive Linemen:

Guard: Matt Hernandez, Miami Dolphins

            0 sacks, 16 games played, 663 downs

Center: Will Hernandez, New York Giants

            1 sack, 16 games played, 807 downs

Guard: Zack Martin, Dallas Cowboys

           4 sacks, 16 games played, 871 downs

It comes as no surprise the three best interior linemen come from teams that run the ball effectively. Without these big guys up the middle creating running lanes, Hines, Barkley and Elliott would not have had such an easy time running the ball.

Edge Rushers:

Edge Rusher 1: DE Marcus Davenport, Baltimore Ravens

            37 tackles, 11 TFL, 25 sacks, 3 FFs, 1 FR, 1 TD

Edge Rusher 2: DE Charles Harris, Miami Dolphins

            36 tackles, 15 TFL, 19 sacks, 4 FFs, 1 FR, 0 TD

These two pass rushers were constantly in the backfield, hitting the QB or the HB, blowing up plays before they could begin. Davenport led MBL with 25 sacks this season, while Harris formed a dynamic duo with Josh Sanders rushing from the opposite side.

Interior Defensive Linemen:

Interior Lineman 1: DT Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams

            46 tackles, 11 TFL, 11 sacks, 2 FFs, 2 FRs

Interior Lineman 2: DT Haynes Massey, Arizona Cardinals

            45 tackles, 10 TFL, 11.5 sacks, 0 FF, 2 FRs

While edge rushers usually get all the accolades, these two mountain men in the middle were able to eat up blocks and still make their presence felt.

Linebackers:

Linebacker 1: MLB Myles Jack, Detroit Lions

            77 tackles, 10 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 7 INTs, 13 deflections, 2 FFs, 1 FR, 1 TD

Linebacker 2: MLB Raekwon McMillan, Miami Dolphins

            45 tackles, 8 TFL, 3 sacks, 12 INTs, 4 deflections, 0 FF, 0 FR, 1 safety, 2 TDs

Linebacker 3: MLB Rashaan Evans, New York Giants

            75 tackles, 6 TFL, 2 sacks, 6 INTs, 5 deflections, 3 FFs, 0 FR, 0 TDs

Myles Jack of the Deroit Lions had one of the best seasons for any LB, as he was all over the field making plays and forcing turnovers. McMillan was not far behind, as he forced an MBL best 12 INTs, taking 2 back for TDs. Evans was the leader of the Giants defense and it showed as he was making plays in the backfield and in pass coverage.

Defensive Backs:

Cornerback 1: CB Adoree Jackson, Tennessee Titans

            75 tackles, 1 TFL, 2 sacks, 9 INTs, 11 deflections, 0 FF, 0 FR, 2 TDs

Cornerback 2: CB M.J. Stewart, Buccaneers

            65 tackles, 2 TFL, 3 sacks, 8 INTs, 10 deflections, 0 FF, 0 FR, 2 TDs

Cornerback 3: CB Josiah Madden, Denver Broncos

            72 tackles, 4 TFL, 2 sacks, 8 INTs, 8 deflections, 1 FF, 0 FR, 1 TD

Free Safety: T.J. Green, Cleveland Browns

            67 tackles, 4 TFL, 0 sacks, 8 INTs, 10 deflections, 3 FFs, 1 FR, 1 TD

Strong Safety: Jaquiski Tartt, Kansas City Chiefs

            63 tackles, 4 TFL, 0 sacks, 10 INTs, 13 deflections, 0 FF, 1 FR, 1 TD

Defensive Back: CB Chidobe Awuzie, Dallas Cowboys

            52 tackles, 6 TFL, 0 sacks, 4 INTs, 14 deflections, 0 FF, 0 FR, 1 TD

Tartt had his best season in MBL, intercepting a defensive back high 10 passes, while also deflecting 13 passes. Even though defensive backs usually don’t make an impact in the backfield, Chidobe Awuzie was just that, as he got 6 tackles for a loss. Finally, it all clicked for Adoree Jackson, as he had his best season in recent memory.

Special Teams:

Kicker: Cairo Santos, New York Jets

            26/26 on FGs, 100%, Longest FG: 64 yards; 35/35 on XPs, 100%

Punter: Marquette King, Denver Broncos

            40 punts, 2,163 yards, 54.1 average, 44.2 Net Average, 16 Punts Inside the 20, Longest    Punt: 83 yards

Kick Returner: Daniel Mason, Cleveland Browns

            17 returns, 774 yards, 45.5 average, 2 TDs

Punt Returner: Morris Studdard, New Orleans Saints

            35 returns, 713 yards, 20.4 average, 1 TD

These players showed that special teams should not be forgotten and can have a big impact on games, scoring points or flipping field position.
