Running Back: Lamar Miller, MIA (+3.8)https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2 ... week-16/2/
A nice all-around performance from Miller, with the Dolphins’ running back amassing 150 yards from scrimmage and scoring a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings. A much stronger second half to the season from Miller, and Sunday also saw his biggest workload of the season so far.
Honorable Mention: Marshawn Lynch, SEA
Defensive Interior – Ends: J.J. Watt, HOU (+15.2) and Stephen Paea, CHI (+5.9)
Taking advantage of seeing plenty of time against an undrafted rookie, though he also found success elsewhere, Watt was at his dominant best once again. Blowing up runs and leaving quarterback Joe Flacco under seemingly constant pressure it was the type of performance that jumps out even against the rest of his dominance this year. Paea makes the Team of the Week for the second time, with another big performance, finishing the game with five total pressures and some nice work against the run.
Honorable Mentions: Cameron Heyward, PIT and Randy Starks, MIA
Edge Rushers: Khalil Mack, OAK (+5.8) and James Harrison, PIT (+5.9)
Several big performances from outside linebackers this week, including Scott Solomon impressing in Cleveland but just not playing enough snaps. Both Harrison and Mack impressed against the run and as pass rushers, with Mack having his best day as a pass rusher since entering the league.
Honorable Mentions: Derrick Morgan, TEN and Cameron Wake, MIA
