He’s been playing some of his best football since the MVP breakout of 50 touchdowns in 2018. It doesn’t matter who’s playing on the outside. He, Andy Reid and Travis Kelce are the modern day Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Rob Gronkowski. 2

It’s Hurts and Mahomes who are the clear MVP leaders right now. The former was truly outstanding in all facets of the game; even his biggest fans couldn’t have predicted such a leap as a passer. His deadpan attitude is just a bonus. 3

The work he’s done without Joe Mixon and Ja’Marr Chase is reminiscent of his incredibly high floor. Burrow is by far the biggest reason Cincinnati can even bother to think about an AFC North title. Now imagine the fireworks when Chase returns. 4

He’s been down to earth a bit over the past month, returning to some of the erratic tendencies of his early career. And yet, without his monster arm and enthusiastic approach, the Bills aren’t 8-3 with at least the ability to match a superpower like the Chiefs. 5

He may never be the consistent passer we want him to be, both on his own and that of his staff, but few QBs are as essential for their team to move the ball. Only 11 players — not QBs, players — have more rushing yards than him this year. 6

Just because the Seahawks can’t stop anyone on defense doesn’t mean his Comeback Player of the Year bid has waned. Even when Kenneth Walker III had no running lanes, Smith held firm, remained accurate, and fed his broad elites. (+1) seven

The Dolphins have done everything to ensure its growth, as have the Eagles with Hurts. His timing with such an elite WR duo helped him easily lead the NFL in yards per attempt (9.0) and completion (12.9). We’re all looking forward to his first real march to a playoff run. (-1) 8

If you just look at the sample size of five games since returning from injury, Prescott has been one of the most effective top signallers in the game, making almost 72% of his shots, averaging 8, 2 YPA and two scores. per game. Dallas is the wildcard candidate to beat. (+1) 9

The 49ers offense didn’t necessarily fire on all cylinders in a shutout win over the Saints in Week 12, but Garoppolo has been particularly steady as a goalkeeper for Kyle Shanahan’s offense. As well as generally controlling the ball, he looked sharper than usual while extending plays. (+2) ten

Cousins ​​is still having a year slightly below his standards, but it doesn’t show because of his determination for such a rambling candidate. His Thanksgiving effort against the Patriots was particularly heartening, as he sent good laser bullets to all his best guns to beat Bill Belichick. (+2) 11

It’s the Chargers, not Herbert. It’s the Chargers, not Herbert. Keep repeating that, because without the young gun’s ever-steady spirals, LA may well have lost to the Cardinals in Week 12. Tied to an injury-riddled offense that refuses to air it, he’s found ways to show respectable figures. (+2) 12

Rodgers was gaining momentum, showcasing some of that game-extending magic, before injuring his ribs against the Eagles. Green Bay has plenty of reasons to let him heal while giving Jordan Love a full look, but he’s determined to fight on while the season hangs in the balance. How much can he freestyle in this condition? (-2) 13

He said this week that he “would rather lose and play than not play at all,” which is the right attitude for a QB, but also indicative of this Bucs season. Brady controlled the ball, but he struggled to move it consistently as Tampa Bay suffered one schematic, injury-related hiccup after another. (-5) 14

Quietly picking up steam again for one of 2022’s wellness rebuilding stories, Lawrence saved some of his sharpest things for critical time, teaming up with Doug Pederson to antagonize the Ravens and give fans some Jags a real hope for the future. When he’s on, he has a zip on the ball like Justin Herbert. (+3) 15

After 11 spirited games of play by Jacoby Brissett, it’s Watson’s turn in Cleveland. The off-field issues aside, it’s fair to wonder how comfortable he’ll be playing for the first time in two years. But the natural mobility and touch down should give it a relatively high floor. 16

His performance in a low-scoring loss to the Bengals was representative of his standing in Tennessee: perfectly competent and perfectly dependent on Derrick Henry, whose inability to roll on Cincy’s front left the Titans lukewarm on offense. (-3) 17

He’s never been a quitter, you can give him that, and it showed in a shootout win over Seattle, where Josh Jacobs lent a big hand. In general, he’s looked more decisive since Josh McDaniels’ infamous loss to the interim-led Colts, breathing new life into Vegas. (-1) 18

Imagine if he pulled off a Thanksgiving upset against Josh Allen and the Bills in Detroit. Too often this year, Goff’s numbers have been inflated by playing catch-up. But he really fought to keep the Lions scrappy, showcasing brilliant chemistry with Amon-Ra St. Brown. 19

As we come into December, it won’t be enough for Jones to handle the ball, something he’s done mostly under Brian Daboll. He has to prove that he can consistently get the ball in the air, past the sticks. Does he have the parts to do it? (-4) 20

Talk about unmet expectations in Arizona. With each passing week, it seems more inevitable that Murray will have a new coach before long, not just because Kliff Kingsbury can’t get his attacking rhythm up, but because Murray isn’t really helping, showing dread. athleticism but struggling to produce within the structure. . 21

The definition of a borderline QB joker, Mariota doesn’t have the passing acumen to trust in tough times or for long stretches, but as long as his legs are in working order, Arthur Smith’s Falcons will stick around. (-2) 22

Considered a near nuisance to Bill Belichick’s own defensive contender, Jones came back to life on Thanksgiving, separating the Vikings for much of a close game. As we saw in his rookie year, when he has time to read a “D”, he can play the playmaker reasonably well. (+3) 23

It’s a safe weekly bet for at least one turnover; his energy is more consistent than his decision-making. But you can’t deny that his confidence has seeped into the roster, giving Ron Rivera a spicy contender as long as Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson Jr.’s punch works as well. (-1) 24

Hello QB1. Making his first start of 2022 for Zach Wilson, White did all the little things right, largely freeing up the Jets’ young talent. Better defenses will expose his lack of mobility, but you could do much worse in New York. His arm talent can be seen in the way he drives the ball down the pitch. (+5) 25

Is it Ryan or is it the Colts? It’s both. The longtime Falcon has been a fighter all year, battling bad circumstances up front and organizationally, but his time has come and gone as a QB capable of transcending average setups. (-4) 26

Well well well. Darnold came back to bring a real spark to Carolina’s offense, which is no small feat. He’s already proven that a single bad swing can send him into a jittery streak, but for now, you like seeing that lingering arm talent, which bodes well for DJ Moore. (+2) 27

Unless he instantly returns to his prime in Seattle, he’s likely heading for a new coach in 2023. Either way, he and the person in charge need to find a way to rebuild his fundamentals and confidence then let his once vaunted elusiveness slip. of the directory. (-3) 28

Every start for him is just an opportunity to do one thing a little better, because the real test comes in 2023, when hopefully he will have a better line and a better plan to maximize his talent. In Week 12, he stayed calm even when the game got tight, displaying pinpoint accuracy in certain clutch points. (-1) 29

If you’re Dennis Allen, why aren’t you experimenting with a return to Jameis Winston or, dare we suggest, a Wildcat-centric game plan with Taysom Hill? Dalton is probably the safest option among them, but it’s been either red hot or freezing all year. (-6) 30

At the end of the season Perkins may be throwing guys that aren’t even on the roster right now. Think how that phrase would have sounded immediately after the Super Bowl. The Rams are completely exhausted. (+1) 31
headshot-image

His debut in place of Davis Mills was far from inspiring, but the staff probably deserve more blame for failing to get Dameon Pierce up the pitch. (-1) 32

Almost sidelined before his own emergency start with an oblique injury, Siemian is battle-hardened, but he’s a seismic abandonment of Justin Fields’ dual-threat power.
