If you have watched any Seattle Seahawks games this year, you must have witnessed Russell Wilson dominating opposing defenses. He has been on an unreal tear to start the season, averaging four touchdowns per game. Other than the stats, he has lifted the Seahawks to a perfect 4-0 record while playing perfect football. 

Offensive Player of the Year: Alvin Kamara – RB, New Orleans Saints

Stats through Week 4:

Yards per carry: 4.7

Rushing Yards: 236

Rushing Touchdowns: 4

Yards Per Reception: 10.7

Receiving Yards: 321

Receiving Touchdowns: 3

Amidst Drew Brees’ struggles this year, the New Orleans Saints offense has been explosive without their best weapon, WR Michael Thomas. The answer for why they are amazing is their bellcow Alvin Kamara—the best fantasy football player thus far this season, and definitely the most valuable offensive player of the 2020 season so far.

Defensive Player of the Year: T.J Watt - OLB, Pittsburgh Steelers
