Only 2 Pittsburgh Steelers were listed in Pro Football Focus 101 Best Players from the 2020 season




Pro Football Focus recently released their 101 best players from the 2020 NFL season. Aaron Donald was the best player on their list for the 2020 season in regards to performance. Only 2 Pittsburgh Steeler players made the list. TJ Watt was listed as the 9th best player in the 2020 season and Cam Heyward was listed as the 29th best player in the 2020 season.


Pro Football Focus says TJ Watt was one of the NFL's best players for the second season in a row. He is now listed as the most dominant Watt brother in the National Football League. Only Shaquil Barrett tallied more total pressures than TJ Watt in the NFL. While Barrett had 77 total pressures compared to TJ Watt's 73, Watt knocked the quarterback down 42 times earning him a better grade.


Cam Heyward was listed as 29th on Pro Football's 101 best players list. PFF says Heyward has always been a good player, but he has elevated his game over the past 4 seasons. Cam was a dominant force on the defensive line for the Steelers who finished the year with an over PFF grade of 89.5. He had 64 pressures and 32 defensive stops. PFF feels Cam Heyward has made a case for being the second-best interior defender after Aaron Donald in the National Football League.
