Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kevin Minter – It feels weird to pick on a part-time linebacker, but the Bucs are an odd mix these days, which leaves Minter as our overrated player of choice.

While Minter was never a breakout star, he was able to fetch far more dollars in free agency than he should have. While he enjoyed a nice couple seasons in Arizona, the reality is he’s a journeyman who doesn’t do anything particularly well. It turns out that’s good enough to carve out a decent career in the modern NFL.

Tennessee Titans

Ryan Tannehill – Right now we’re going to go out on a limb and predict Ryan Tannehill will not pick up where he left off last season—you know, the sort of stat line that mirrored the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Russ Wilson.

Tannehill deserves credit for his remarkable performance in 2019, but we’re pretty sure that league-leading passer rating of 117.5 is a bit inflated and that makes him overrated at this point in his career.

Washington Redskins

Brandon Scherff – There’s no denying that Scherff can be among the very best guards in the National Football League.

Unfortunately, as the saying goes, a player’s best ability is his availabiity and Scherff made the Pro Bowl despite making only 11 starts last season. Given that he made only eight starts the season before that, we’re not so sure that Scherff’s reputation matches up to reality in 2020.
