Despite a rough season as a team overall, a few Lions have been playing pretty dang well.

With NFL Pro Bowl voting underway as fans pick their favorite players, Pro Football Focus announced their own rosters based on skill over the past 14 weeks of play. Three Lions made the cut.

First — tight end T.J. Hockenson.

“The big production at tight end comes from the AFC, but T.J. Hockenson has been impressive for the Lions this season in his own right, generating a passer rating when targeted of 97.3,” Sam Monson writes.

Next up — center Frank Ragnow.

“The Lions center has allowed nine pressures all year and has grades north of 74.0 as both a run-blocker and pass-blocker,” Monson writes.

Last but certainly not least — punter Jack Fox was selected with a 86.7 grade.
