The NFLPA has revealed their sales list for the top 50 players from March through November 2018. Licensed product categories include everything from game jerseys to bobbleheads.
Julio Jones – 24th
Coming in toward the middle of the list is none other than wide receiver Julio Jones. Coming off a phenomenal season where he led the league in targets (170), receiving yards (1,677), and receiving yards per game (104.8), I’m kind of surprised he isn’t higher on the list.
Players who ranked higher than Julio Jones include:
19.) RB Alvin Kamara, New Orleans Saints
20.) LB Von Miller, Denver Broncos
21.) QB Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings
22.) DE J.J. Watt, Houston Texans
23.) RB Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams
Matt Ryan – 50th
That’s right, 2016 MVP quarterback Matt Ryan finished 50th on the list of top 50 players in merchandise sales for 2018. Like Julio, Matty Ice had a great season where he finished third overall in passing yards (4,924) and passing touchdowns (35), and fourth overall in completion percentage (69.4%) and completions (422).
Players who ranked higher than Matt Ryan include:
45.) RB James Conner, Pittsburgh Steelers
46.) QB Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
47.) LB Leighton Vander Esch, Dallas Cowboys
48.) WR Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints
49.) DT Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams
