Odell Beckham Jr:  He has taken the NFL by storm with his dazzling catches, crisp route running and defensive coordinators’ nightmare to game plan for him.  Without him, the NY Giants offensive talk is vanilla.  The former LSU star has broken NFL records in most curso Power BI online EBAC touchdown within first 25 games of his career.  That goes a long way in consideration for a current top ten KGYR player.  All his production due to without a consistent running attack and a clear cut wide receiver.  Amassing an amazing 90 + receptions, 1300+ yards and 13+ Touchdowns may have already been the best wide receiver in Franchise history.  Arguably the best wide receiver in football through the 2015 NFL Season.

Eli Manning – The two time Superbowl MVP is coming off with one of his best seasons of his career.  In the second year of the West Coast Offense System, Eli has accumulated over 4,000+ passing yards, 33+ TDs to 14 INTs.  With a respectable 93.6 quarterback rating, his play has kept the NY Giants in most of the games this season.  Let’s not forget this quarterback currently holds the active streak in consecutive games played in 11 straight seasons.

Carmelo Anthony – also known as Melo.  Left off the prior KGYR list due to injury (because this is a what have you done for me lately thing), is a top 5 deadly NBA scorer from the post, mid-range, elbow and 3 point arc.  If you follow Anthony game by game, you can see the sacrifice in his game to not score as much but instead get teammates involved.  Don’t get it twisted, on any given night can still put up 30+ points a night.  A walking command of double teams in half court sets is the respect he gets on the floor.  His play is needed if the Knickerbockers are going to make a playoff run.

Dellin Betances – It is not often a relief pitcher cracks the top #KGYR top ten, let alone top half.  Sometimes seeing is believing.  The All-Star Betances has been nothing short of spectacular in the 2015 MLB season for the Yankees. Towering at 6’8″ without the mound, Betances arsenal of pitches has kept major leaguers off guard and confused. On most teams easily as the closer, Betances has been a great fit as middle reliever as the bridge from starter to the closer.  With a strikeout to walk 4:1 ratio & an ERA over 1.25– Betances highlights the clear strength of the 2015 Yankees out of the bullpen with hopes of making the postseason for the first time in a couple of years.  1.50 ERA, 131 strikeouts, 9 saves. He is probably one of the most dominant middle relievers in baseball.

Henrik Lundqvist – the fort, the enforcer in net for the Broadway blueshirts with a .924 save percentage which has him outside the top 20 as NHL goalies.  But is that fair to Lundqvist?  The knock on him is by far Henrik faces the second most shots in the NHL perhaps due to the lack of defense in front of him by the defensemen & Forwards.  Nevertheless, we recognize Lundqvist’s importance as a big time goalie.  With an unbelievable record in game 7’s, he is as vital for the Blueshirts in attempt to win their first Stanley cup in 21 seasons.

 Andrew Miller – The closer for the Yankees.  Two seasons removed from Yankees legend Mariano Rivera, Miller brought back the closer title in the Bronx.  Not that David Robertson was all that bad the prior year, Andrew Miller was consistent.  36 Saves, 2 blown saves, 100 strikeouts, walked 20 (a 5:1 Strikeout to walk ratio), only gave up 5 Homeruns with a WHIP of 0.86 and finished with a 2.04 ERA.  Miller was phenomenal in the 2015 campaign.

Mats Zuccarello is the NYR leader in Total Points. Coming off the brain contusion is the vital piece to make the Rangers one of the dangerous teams in the NHL.  Due to his absence, it was evident the Blueshirts was not the same team during the second half of 2015 without him.  Thus far in the 2015-16 campaign, Mats has accumulated tops in goals and tied for second with assists on the team.  A scrappy right handed player who cashed in a key OT win goal vs the Ducks in December to help stop the Rangers off the snide

Derick Brassard – DB16 or Brass known from NYR fans is one of the team’s consistent scorers. Second on the team in scoring in the 2015-16 campaign, he is one of the most important players for the Broadway Blueshirts.  For example, his play vs the Ducks accumulating two goals and an assist in a key OT win vs the Ducks shows his value on the ice as a top star.  But it is more than just this.  How can we forget the hat trick in game 6 in the Eastern conference finals last season to force a game 7?

Kristaps Portzingis – The Latavian star who embraced coming to New York City wanted to be a Knickerbocker.  The Fans including the Bleed Blue Show themselves were apprehensive.  The developments of his good basketball play was first put on notice in the Las Vegas Summer League.  He has been nothing short of spectacular in his rookie campaign.  Leads the team in double doubles, very good rebounding, stretches the floor with his three point making ability, and riles Knicks fans up with sick follow up dunks.  So far, a bright future for KP6 in his future.

Rick Nash is third on the team in points. Not as dominant of his scoring in the 2014-15 campaign but #Nashty has found ways to be involved with his scoring from goals to assists.  He is a key component to what the Rangers do on the first line.  He is tied for first currently on the team with Power Play Goals (Zuccarello). Great enough player to stay on this top ten #KGYR List.

Alex Rodriguez – After a 162 Game suspension in the 2014 MLB Baseball season bounced back in 2015 Season with 33 HRs, 86 RBIs while batting .250 with an On Base Percentage of .356.  The Yankees slugger had a slugging percentage of .486 with 84 Walks (The Most since 2009).  Rodriguez had some big homeruns in key Yankees games when the team was fighting for a Wild Card Position.  His production was enough to crack the top ten list for the Forum For the Fans.
