Top 10 Best Quarterbacks in the NFL Today
These are the top 10 best Quarterbacks going into week 6. This list is based on overall talent, production so far, but most importantly projected production going forward. It does not include players currently injured and out.
#10 – Geno Smith | +0
The Seattle Seahawks keep winning ball games. Geno Smith keeps getting it done. Don’t look too deep in his week 5 statline. Geno Smith missed a good portion of the 2nd quarter due to injury.
#9 – Brock Purdy | +5
At this point I have to start showing Brock Purdy more respect. Even though he has the best supporting cast of any Quarterback in the NFL, he is also making the most of it. Mr. Irrelevant keeps putting up MVP-like statlines.
#8 – Matthew Stafford | -1
The Los Angeles Rams were completely taken for granted coming into the season. Matthew Stafford looks healthy and made the most out of a young receiving core. Now he has his favorite weapon in Cooper Kupp back and that will make a massive difference going forward.
#7 – Jared Goff | +1
The Detroit Lions have shocked teams and fans this year. They are the real deal offensively with Jared Goff leading a relatively young group around him. I once called Jared Goff the most overrated player in the NFL, and now he has become one of the most underrated.
#6 – Lamar Jackson | -1
Lamar Jackson had one of the best week 5 performances for any Quarterback and had 0 touchdown passes. I saw some extremely impressive throws from the running Quarterback but I also saw some of the most embarrassing dropped passes ever. His wide receivers were doing him no favors last week with the exception of Zay Flowers.
#5 – Jalen Hurts | +1
After starting the season a little stale, Jalen Hurts is starting to look elite again. The Eagles are 5-0 right now this season and will likely blowout more teams going forward. Jalen Hurts’ dual threat ability paired with the elite talent around him is an impossibility to neutralize.
#4 – Justin Herbert | +0
You can pair Justin Herbert with the worst coach in the NFL and it won’t matter. He is too talented to not produce numbers and has the blessing of Keenan Allen as his go-to guy through the air.
#3 – Josh Allen | -1
While Josh Allen lost against the Jags last week, and struggled, it was a game in which the Jags were in London for a full week before the Bills arrived. I still believe in Josh Allen for the remainder of the season and consider him an MVP candidate.
#2 – Tua Tagovailoa | +1
If the season were to end today, Tua Tagovailoa would be considered the MVP. I don’t think he’s shown enough yet to be considered the best Quarterback in the NFL today yet. If he can stay healthy and maintain this efficiency, I will change my tune.
#1 – Patrick Mahomes | +0
While I don’t believe he has the best stats of all Quarterbacks going into week 6, I still consider Patrick Mahomes the best Quarterback in the NFL. Outside of Travis Kelce, he has no single receiver that is reliable. He makes the most out of the least and is lucky to have Andy Reid as his playcaller and coach.
