The NFL preseason is halfway over and the regular season will be here before we know it. At this point teams are making big decisions on what players are going to be key contributors in 2014 and what players simply can’t be counted on. While there is no substitute for watching a player for yourself to form an opinion on how they are playing, there simply isn’t enough time for most people to watch every player on every snap of every game. However, that’s exactly what the good people at Pro Football Focus do. For die hard football fans the small amount it costs for a yearly subscription is worth every penny.

On Tuesday, I took a look at which key defensive players have graded out well through two preseason games and which ones PFF have graded as struggling out of the gate. Today its time to take a look at the offensive positions. For each key offensive position (QB, RB, WR, TE, OL) I have listed two players that have graded out really well so far and two players that have graded out poorly.

Are these grades the be all, end all of NFL evaluations? No. Does a good or bad evaluation 100% guarantee that a player will perform at the same level in the regular season? No. That having been said the PFF rankings are still one of the best evaluation tool available to give you an idea of how a player is doing. The players with the highest grades are clearly playing well and those with the lowest grades clearly have been struggling.

So without further ado, here are the offensive players that PFF have determined are making the grade or missing the mark through two preseason game.
