NFL MVP, ROY and awards rankings: There are three legit MVP candidates right now (Shutdown Corner)

Some years, the NFL MVP favorite is pretty clear by December. There could be a player or two have a great finish and become legitimate factors in the race by the end (especially New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees if the Saints make a run at the playoffs, or Derek Carr of the Oakland Raiders if he has a big statistical finish), but right now three are in a clear lead. Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott – I wrote a few weeks ago that Elliott likely wouldn’t win, and I believe that.
