Allen Bailey – 17th of 46 (+1.8)

Mike DeVito – 20th of 46 (+1.3)

Jaye Howard – 3rd of 70 (+7.5)

Howard has been nothing less than incredible thus far. Now in his third year with the Chiefs, Howard legitimately looks like an All-Pro both at defensive end and nose tackle. Howard bulked up to 335 pounds and looks unstoppable on the line.

Dontari Poe – 50th of 70 (-1.0)

Justin Houston – 1st of 44 (+11.6)

Houston might be the most complete player in the NFL along with J.J. Watt. Houston has utterly dominated opponents since becoming a regular starter in 2012, and he’s off to another huge start in 2015 with three sacks in two games. Houston is dwarfing his competition at the position, including that cheap-shot artist Von Miller.

Tamba Hali – 25th of 44 (-0.4)

Derrick Johnson – 4th of 50 (+2.8)

Johnson has shown no affects of the torn Achilles suffered last year. Johnson is stuffing the run, covering tight ends and pressuring the quarterback. It has been a joy to watch out of the 32-year-old.

Josh Mauga – 23rd of 50 (-0.6)

Marcus Peters – 11th of 101 (+2.3)

Peters looks like a future All-Pro. It is only two games into his career, but the kid is obviously special. He already has two interceptions, seven breakups and a touchdown. Without question, Peters is the real deal.

Jamell Fleming – 101st of 101 (-7.4)

Eric Berry – 8th of 76 (+2.9)

This is greatest story in sports. Bar none. Berry looked like his old self on Thursday, hammering Demaryius Thomas and covering tight ends all night. It is a beautiful thing to watch No. 29.

Husain Abdullah – 12th of 76 (+2.3)

Ron Parker – 21st of 76 (+1.5)
