1. Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett

Myles Garrett’s 4.5 sack performance against the Bears was the most dominant individual defensive effort I’ve seen watching those awesome looking orange helmets.

There was a sense Garrett was going to feast off Chicago, and the former No. 1 overall pick set the stage perfectly.

Two days before the game, Garrett talked about everyone on the defense needing to step up–on on Monday morning, he looks like a genius.

On 26 pass-rushing snaps, Garrett had a ridiculous eight pressures en route to setting the franchise single-game record for sacks.

Putting Garrett on these lists is kind of pointless because he’s already an elite talent. On the flip side, if he manages to crack the vaunted stock list it’s because you know he’s flying in rarified air.

Usually it’s the offensive players who generate the most excitement in a game, and while Kareem Hunt was awesome, it was Garrett who carried the day as Cleveland’s MVP.
