16. Sam Darnold
The Carolina Panthers have had a great season so far, and it is because quarterback Sam Darnold has been impressive. On Sunday, Darnold threw two interceptions and did not play his best football. I still believe the change of scenery from New York to Carolina was perfect for Darnold, and this could be the lowest he is ranked all year.
15. Baker Mayfield
The best way for me to describe Baker Mayfield this season is when you are eating something that you think is good, but at the same time, you want to keep eating it because you don’t know how good it really is. That is Mayfield for me. He is good, but how good is he? He has been very underwhelming all season, but he has also done enough for his teams to win games.
14. Mac Jones
The highest-rated rookie quarterback and deservedly so. Do not let Miami Dolphins fans tell you that New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones hasn’t been good because they are just lying to themselves. Jones may not stretch the field yet, but he makes the right read and perfect throw nine times out of ten. Jones completed 19 straight passes on Sunday, which was the most for a rookie quarterback over the last 40 years! Jones looks like the real deal, and the Patriots have a franchise quarterback.
13. Kirk Cousins
I have been defending Kirk Cousins all season, but it is hard to defend him after his Week 4 performance. Cousin’s has been playing good football, but on Sunday, he was not very good. Cousins barely threw for 200 yards and threw an interception. He only led his team to seven points and a loss to the Browns.
12. Lamar Jackson
The Denver Broncos have been solid this season, and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson played well. His completion percentage was bad, but Jackson threw for 300 yards and a score in a big win.
11. Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson will not be confusing anyone as an MVP candidate this season, but he has played solid enough. He only threw for 149 yards in Week 4, but he did throw for two scores, and his team won.
