Pro Football Focus gave each NFL player an overall score for the 2017 season and ranked that player in relation to the other players at the same position.
For example, Julio Jones was the Falcons’ highest-rated player with a 91.4 overall PFF grade, ranking him as the No. 3 receiver in the league this year. It’s a good tool to see how each player stacked up to their peers and also for examining where things went wrong.
