New, comments

Mark Tyler looks at some of the Redskins team leaders at the midway point of the season.

Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

It's been and up and down start to the 2016 season, and the midway point is finally upon us. The Redskins currently sit at 4-3-1 as they enter the bye week, and prepare for the second half of the year.

We have had some pretty prolific performances from some players so far. Will the second half be even better on an individual basis? Let's take a look at who has stood out so far.

Kirk Cousins - Cousins started the season off on a rocky path, but has since raised his game to another level. He currently ranks #2 in the NFL is passing yards after 8 games, although some who rank below him have only played 7 games.

Stats: 2454 passing yards, 12 TD's, 7 INT's, 67% completion percentage, 11 sacks

Extrapolated Season Stats:  4908 passing yards, 24 TD's, 14 INT's, 67% completion percentage, 22 sacks

Jordan Reed - Despite missing two games while in the league concussion protocol, Reed is still the team leader in receptions. He is a mismatch nightmare for defenders, and is one of the best overall route runners in the league.

Stats(6 games):  42 receptions, 415 yards, 3 TD's

Extrapolated Season Stats(12 expected games):  82 receptions, 830 yards, 6 TD's

Jamison Crowder - Crowder has been the offenses biggest surprise thus far, showing the ability to get open against both man and zone coverage, and becoming the ultimate security blanket for Cousins. He leads all Skins pass catchers in yards and touchdowns. He has also shown big play ability as a punt returner.

Stats:  40 receptions, 498 yards, 4 TD's

Extrapolated Season Stats:  80 receptions, 996 yards, 8 TD's

Matt Jones - The book on Jones has been incredibly mixed so far this season. He's show good running ability at times, but still dances and fumbles too much. Hopefully, he can get healthy and contribute more down the stretch.

Stats(7 games):  99 carries, 460 yards, 3 TD's, 4.6 YPC

Extrapolated Season Stats:  198 carries, 920 yards, 6 TD's

Ryan Kerrigan - 18 tackles, 7 sacks, 1 forced fumble

Extrapolated Stats:  36 tackles, 14 sacks, 2 forced fumbles

Trent Murphy - 25 tackles, 6 sacks, 3 forced fumbles

Extrapolated Stats:  50 tackles, 12 sacks, 6 forced fumbles

Josh Norman - 33 tackles, 11 passes defended, 1 INT, 1 forced fumble

Extrapolated Stats:  66 tackles, 24 passes defended, 2 INT's, 2 forced fumbles

In the comments section, please discuss if you think said player will go over or under his extrapolated stats for the season, and why.

Who do you feel our midseason MVP is?
