5. Antonio Brown

AVG. Rating: 94.89
2016 Rank: 4
Brown’s consistency is his hallmark: He’s had four consecutive 100-catch seasons (a fifth would be an NFL record), scoring 54 TDs in that span. Brown’s 2017 training camp was so good that coach Mike Tomlin was jokingly unimpressed by a one-handed catch: “Show me some new [stuff],” Tomlin said. “Catch it with no hands.” — Jeremy Fowler

8. Le’Veon Bell

AVG. Rating: 92.25
2016 Rank: 31
No NFL player in history has averaged more scrimmage yards per game through four seasons than Bell’s 128.7. And his 157 yards per game last year ranks third all-time for a running back in a season. Bell can function as both a No. 2 receiver (6.3 catches per game in 2016) and a bell-cow back (1,172 rushing yards on 220 carries over his final eight games last season). — Jeremy Fowler

39. Ben Roethlisberger

AVG. Rating: 86.15
2016 Rank: 18
Over the past two seasons, Roethlisberger has averaged nearly 300 yards passing per game and has cut his sack total in half to just 37. He’s still capable of the Big Ben improv plays but relies more on dropping back and making the right reads. “As good a thrower as I’ve ever seen,” said offensive coordinator Todd Haley, citing strength, touch and feel. With the weapons around him, Roethlisberger has an outside chance at his first 5,000-yard season. — Jeremy Fowler
