5 best Packers players from first half of 2019 season
The Green Bay Packers are closing in on a playoff berth, and these five players have been the biggest difference-makers in the first half of the season.
Sitting with an almost-perfect 7-1 record, it’s hard to choose five standout players for the Green Bay Packers. They’ve won games with defense. They’ve won games with offense. They’ve won with a walk-off field goal, they’ve won with big leads, and they’ve own with defensive stops.
Matt LaFleur should be near the top of the list for Coach of the Year, taking just half the season to lead this team to more victories than it achieved in all of 2018. More than that, this team has a completely different feel to it than a year ago, and that’s because of LaFleur.
Here are some honorable mentions who almost made the list:
Bryan Bulaga has been playing some of the best football of his career. A potential cut candidate last offseason, it’s now possible the Packers will have no choice but to give him a new contract at the end of 2019.
Davante Adams put up 378 yards in his opening four games this season, including one of the best performances of his career against the Eagles. Had he not got injured, there’s no doubt he’d be in the top five.
Rookie Elgton Jenkins has made an impressive start at guard, and it looks like GM Brian Gutekunst has found a future star.
JK Scott has shown the importance of having a good punter. Regularly flipping field position, Scott has the fourth-best average in the NFL at 48.1 yards per punt.
Let’s get into the top five.
