RODGER SAFFOLD, OT, LOS ANGELES RAMS
Games/Started – 8/8
Notes: Saffold continues to be a dominant fixture on the Rams offensive line. He is enjoying a great season as the longest tenured Ram. Saffold has certainly seen the highs and lows of the Rams’ franchise and appears to be on a strong Super Bowl contender this year.

NATE SUDFELD, QB, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

IAN THOMAS, TE, CAROLINA PANTHERS
Games/Started – 7/3
Rec – 11
