With the exception of playing a key role in winning the Super Bowl, nothing says you're one of the best players in the league more than the NFL MVP award. Proving themselves game after game, season after season, the top players in the NFL are always on the grind for the MVP award. Sure, they may not outright strive to win it, but in wanting to be the best they can be for their team, as well as working hard, they make headway in the MVP race. From top NFL quarterbacks to leading running backs, these players could all be in the running for the 2018 NFL MVP—who are your top picks?

As you can imagine, some of last season's top players find themselves in the NFL MVP race, including longtime greats Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers (despite an injury), Deshaun Watson, and Jimmy Garoppolo, among plenty of others. Of course, the younger stars like Saquon Barkley, Alvin Kamara, and Ezekiel Elliot have also proved themselves to be worthy MVP candidates. In short, making your 2018 NFL MVP predictions won't be easy, as there's some serious talent at hand—all fighting for the title. 

Take a look at the list of MVP candidates for the 2018 NFL season and give your favorites a vote toward the top. Feel free to vote players down and add others as the season progresses.
