For this podcast, we define the broad terms of overrated and underrated by factoring in the player’s salary, their reputation, and the expectations held by both the team and the fans for the 2019 season.
For the sake of this argument, we are not including players who were rookies last year, and we are excluding quarterback Josh Allen, whose play is so polarizing that some fans view him as overrated while others in the fan base consider him underrated. We give him an incomplete grade and reserve the right to revisit his status after this season!
Combing through the active roster, Boccacino and D’Amico nominate one player apiece who they feel is overrated, and two players who they consider to be underrated. One thing they both agreed upon: Given the current state of the roster assembled by general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott, it was not easy coming up with overrated players, while the list of potential underrated players was fairly lengthy.
