The voting period for this list has ended.
1 Drew Brees
Drew Christopher Brees is an American football quarterback for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League.
He is the only player to have back to back to back 5,000 yards in three seasons straight. Brees also has the all time best completion percentage with 66.95%.
In what could be his final season, going out with an MVP would be the way to retire. With Brees set to break Peyton Manning and Brett Favre's passing records in 2018, will that be enough for an MVP award?
I believe it would be a nice send off if Brees just exploded and wins MVP and leads his team to the super bowl.
He has incredible stats and is bringing his team to a 12-2 season and a sure playoffs chance.
2 Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Charles Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.
Last time Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone, he won MVP the next year. That may be wishful thinking, but he's still in his prime. Maybe he can rake in a third MVP award, just like Tom Brady did in 2017.
Well, look at how well he is doing now. He currently has a team at 5-8-1, around 20th in the NFL currently. If he were most likely, he would be able to bring his team to win a few more games.
Coming off of an injury hungry for another ring, and with new piece Jimmy Graham to work with. It's coming home lads
3 Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown is a former NFL wide receiver and for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFC South Division. He was drafted in the 6th round of the 2010 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and has also been on the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots. He is a 7x pro bowler, and regarded as a skilled player.
Brown honestly would've won it last season if it hadn't been for injuries late into the season that forced him to miss a few games. Expect the all-pro to produce more in 2018 and contend for MVP.
4 Patrick Mahomes II
Don't think anyone saw this coming. 50 TDs and 5000 yards passing in his first full season in the league. Either him or Brees will take home the award.
How can anyone argue with his accomplishments, win the coin toss and they are in Super Bowl!
Gifted athlete. Makes amazing things happen.
5 Russell Wilson
Russell Carrington Wilson is an American football quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and formerly for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.
He's cemented himself as a top five quarterback in the NFL. Heck, he accounted for 100% of his team's points last year. I kid you not. With the Seahawks spiraling into the black abyss, Wilson could be their one shining light in 2018.
6 Philip Rivers
Philip Michael Rivers is a former American football quarterback. He played for the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers from 2004 to 2019 and for the Indianapolis Colts in the 2020 season.
Rivers was drafted fourth overall by the New York Giants in the 2004 NFL Draft before being traded to the San Diego Chargers for Eli Manning that same night.
The Chargers are set for a huge season, and Rivers will lead them once again. Optimism is high in Los Angeles, but they'll need a good quarterback. If Rivers plays like he did during the last half of last season, expect big things from him. Possibly an MVP.
That picture of him never fails to crack me up.
7 Todd Gurley
Todd Gurley II is an American football running back for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.
Gurley was in the running last year, but didn't win. He got offensive player of the year, which is still quite an achievement. Can Gurley hit the 2,000+ scrimmage yards barrier again in 2018? If so, he really could be crowned the NFL's best.
He can break any play for the end zone...
8 Carson Wentz
Carson Wentz is an American football quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. He played college football at North Dakota State University. He was drafted by the Eagles with the second overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft, becoming the highest drafted quarterback from an FCS school and the highest drafted player from NDSU.
He was 2017's surefire MVP before he tore his ACL. His play may slack off a bit this year due to his ACL injury, but I still expect MVP numbers from Wentz.
9 Tom Brady
Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr., is a retired American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. Brady is known for being the only quarterback in history to win 7 Super Bowls, and was often considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Brady was also frequently considered to be the biggest steal in NFL history as a late 6th round pick.
He had previously played for the New England Patriots from 2000 to 2019.
Retirement is on the horizon, and like Brees, it would be nice for Brady to go out with a fourth MVP in his pocket. But can he still produce at age 41?
10 Ezekiel Elliott
Ezekiel Elijah Elliott is an American football running back for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He played college football at Ohio State, where he earned second-team All-America honors in 2015.
There's a chance. He missed six games last season, but still had above-average numbers. He could be battling Todd Gurley for the title of best running back in the league in 2018.
11 Derek Carr
Derek Dallas Carr is an American football quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League.
He could've won it in 2016. That is, if he hadn't broken his leg. His production fell of a cliff in 2017, part of a 6-10 Raiders team. Perhaps he can revert back to 2016 form, and win that elusive MVP award.
12 Jalen Ramsey
Jalen Lattrel Ramsey is an American football cornerback for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League. He played college football at Florida State and was drafted by the Jaguars fifth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
13 Von Miller
Vonnie B'Vsean Miller Jr. is an American football outside linebacker for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League.
This will be tough. A defensive player hasn't won an MVP award since 1986 (Lawrence Taylor). It'll be difficult for Miller to really pull it off.
Because I said so
14 Andrew Luck
Andrew Austen Luck is a former American football quarterback who played his entire career for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League.
He's lead the colts to winning the last 7/8 games this season!
15 Julio Jones
Quintorris Lopez "Julio" Jones is a current wide receiver who plays for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. Jones was selected sixth overall in 2011 to the Atlanta Falcons, and since made it to one Super Bowl.
16 Deandre Hopkins
DeAndre Rashaun Hopkins, also known as "Nuk," is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. Hopkins was drafted 27th overall to the Houston Texans in 2013.
17 Taysom Hill
18 Luke Kuechly
Luke August Kuechly is a former American football middle linebacker. He played his entire career for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.
He's a top 5 linebacker and he's a young talent so I can't wait to see him in the future
19 Harrison Smith
Harrison Smith is an American football safety for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.
20 Aaron Donald
Aaron Charles Donald is an American football defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League.
21 Jordan Howard
22 David Johnson
David Jerome Johnson Sr. is an American football running back for the Houston Texans of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Cardinals in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He played college football at Northern Iowa.
23 Travis Kelce
Travis Michael Kelce is an American football tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.
24 Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. is a NFL wide receiver, playing for the Los Angeles Rams. He is most-known for making an incredible one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys. Beckham was drafted 12th overall to the New York Giants.
25 Deshaun Watson
