With the preseason all out of the way, NFL fans can turn their attention to the regular season, which starts next Thursday. Baltimore and Denver will play in a rematch of their excellent playoff game from last year, when the Ravens got the upper hand on the way to their Super Bowl victory.
But the season isn’t just about wins and losses, of course, with the NFL ecosystem yielding plenty of fantasy action and other interests when the real games finally get under way. As players get ready for the season to begin, a bevy of prop bets on every possible individual performance is available.
The eve of the regular season also offers a chance to look at how everyone thinks players will perform in some of the biggest award categories before the 2013-2014 season commences and reveals who really came to play. Will the players who lead the preseason odds for MVP still be good when the season ends? Will studs from years past be surpassed for yardage totals by players who haven’t made their names yet?
Only the season will tell, but for those who are pretty sure they know who will take home this year’s different honors, the time to take the plunge is now. Take a look at who leads the main categories heading into Week 1.
