5 Players You Should Watch This NFL Season

The NFL season is always filled with excitement and anticipation as fans eagerly watch their favorite teams compete. While the focus is often on the teams as a whole, there are certain players who stand out and capture our attention with their exceptional skills and performances. We’ll highlight five players that you should definitely keep an eye on for the 2023-2024 NFL season.

Justin Fields, Quarterback, Chicago Bears.

Selected by the Chicago Bears with the 11th overall pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Justin Fields lived up to some lofty expectations despite the challenges he faced throughout his rookie season, eventually finishing with a 6-11 record. Heading into Year 3, Fields is prepared to assume the leadership role and shine among his peers. Fields was unsurprisingly a primary contributor as a rusher, topping all quarterbacks in rushing yards (1,143), he also tied with Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson for the most sacks taken (55). By utilizing the draft and offseason to support the offensive line, Fields will have more time to craft plays and get the ball to his receivers and other offensive weapons, thus enhancing his performance as a quarterback.

Jordan Love, Quarterback, Green Bay Packers

Now that Aaron Rodgers has moved on to the New York Jets, Jordan Love has become the focus of attention as he assumes the starting role for the newly revamped Green Bay Packers team. His impressive preseason performance earned him admiration from analysts, and although he may face some initial challenges in the transition, we are confident that Love will rise to the occasion and embrace the opportunity to become the leader of the Pack. As Green Bay embarks on a new era, fans can be confident in the season ahead, with their brand-new quarterback at the helm.

Odell Beckham Jr., Wide Receiver, Baltimore Ravens.

With a bittersweet ending to his championship year win, Odell Beckham Jr. is back and raring to take over the field with the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have made remarkable strides to revitalize their receiving core by adding Rashod Bateman in the 2021 Draft and New rookie Zay Flowers from this years draft. Alongside one of the NFL’s most elite tight ends, Mark Andrews, this could result in a menacing presence in Baltimore.

On defense, safety Kyle Hamilton is entering his second year with the team and has been showing steady development in training camp, indicating he is ready for a strong season and will bring a diversity of skills to the defense. The Ravens’ defense looks to be one of the best in the league with players like Patrick Queen and newly-acquired linebacker Roquan Smith, likely to make a major impact in the upcoming season. Furthermore, Lamar Jackson’s return to full health has raised expectations for a successful playoff run. It’s safe to say Odell is in great hands.

DeAndre Hopkins, Wide Receiver, Tennessee Titans.

DeAndre Hopkins is widely known as one of the National Football League’s talented wide receivers. Even after his six-game suspension in the previous season, he was able to quickly reclaim his previously established status as an elite player in the NFL. With his new team, the Tennessee Titans, he looks to build on his success with the help of one of the league’s best running backs, Derrick Henry. This powerful duo is sure to have a major impact on the league.

Bryce Young, Quarterback, Carolina Panthers.

While the NFC South remains wide open, the Carolina Panthers are striving to secure the division despite the new additions of other teams. Going first in the 2023 NFL Draft, Bryce Young looks to fill the gaps that the Panthers were missing.While Young had a rocky start to preseason, losing to the New York Jets 0-27, he is still displaying signs in training camp and on the field that he is putting in the necessary effort and is prepared for the challenges ahead. Although there may be obstacles along the way, Young is confident to make his mark as the starting Quarterback of the Carolina Panthers.

Where do you see the Panthers ranking among the other teams in the division?

These five players represent only a fraction of the amazing athletes that will be gracing the field this NFL season. With their extraordinary abilities, game-altering contributions, and remarkable power, these athletes are sure to provide plenty of thrills and enjoyment for spectators.
