AAF Stat Leaders: Week 5

Four games into the inaugural AAF season, we can see who the contenders and pretenders are from both a player and team perspective. Led by Garrett Gilbert, the Orlando Apollos are now the only unbeaten team, while the bottom of the standings is now less gloomy, with every team having at least one win. There were some big performances in Week 4. Let’s see how they affected the AAF stat leaders heading into the fifth week.

The first 1,000-yard passer of the season is the Apollos’ Garrett Gilbert, who continues to prove he deserves to be on an NFL roster. He’s also the only four-game starter without an interception, and he adds another 69 rushing/receiving yards and two touchdowns.

The other quarterback on this list without an interception is the Express’ Zach Mettenberger, who started his first game after taking over for Hackenberg the previous week. He has given Memphis great efficiency at quarterback, with his NFL experience shining through.

Week 4’s rushing leader was the talented Ja’Quan Gardner, running for 142 yards for the Commanders.
