1. Tua Tagovailoa
Tua has been the best quarterback this season, in my opinion. I know he has Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but I don’t hold that against him. Tua is the key to the success of the already stacked Miami Dolphins offense.
His quick decision-making and sometimes even quicker release make him the best quarterback in the league this season. If he can stay healthy, I expect he will stay at the top of this list every week.
2. Josh Allen
Allen is right behind Tua. After getting off to a slow start in week one, he’s had an incredible season so far. Allen’s quick footwork and his ability to turn broken plays into positive ones separate him from most QBs in the league. While he still has some turnover issues, I expect him to battle for the top spot with Tua all year.
3. Lamar Jackson
Lamar Jackson comes in at No. 3 on this list and, to me, right now he could be the league’s MVP. Even though the Ravens’ roster seems depleted by injuries yet again, Jackson continues to find ways to win with his arm and his legs.
Dragging his team to victory each week, Jackson continues to prove he is as dynamic as any player in the NFL. I expect Jackson to be in the MVP race all season and the Ravens to be a tough out in the playoffs.
4. Patrick Mahomes
Yes, Patrick Mahomes is No. 4. Some of this may be due to Mahomes fatigue, or the fact that his only real offensive threat is Travis Kelce, but he has also made some uncharacteristic mistakes turning the ball over this season. I still think Mahomes can be the best QB in the world and if you were starting a franchise today you’d be silly not to take him No. 1.
However, if we’re just going based off the first four games of the season, I think it’s fair to say he hasn’t been quite as sharp as he has been in the past.
