New Orleans Saints' Offensive Player Grades: Year in Review

New, comments

My offensive MVP for the first half of the season, based on having the highest GPA, was Jahri Evans. After 16 games, Drew Brees now has the highest GPA, so he gets my offensive MVP for the season. Below are the final GPA's for the season, including the number of games graded. Keep in mind, that doesn't mean number of games played, it's just the number of games I graded based on extended action.

Here are the GPA's, highest to lowest:

Drew Brees: 3.18 (15 games)

Jahri Evans: 3.13 (16 games)

Heath Evans: 3.11 (6 games)

Pierre Thomas: 3.10 (13 games)
