PackFan2005
2017 was a dark year for quarterbacks, with some of the most talented going down with injuries. Now that the greats are mostly healthy, we must wonder, who are among the NFL’s best quarterbacks? We’re looking at the top ten best NFL quarterbacks going into the 2018 season.

The Top Ten

The obvious choice for number one, fans hope Brady continues his dominance in 2018. - PackFan2005

2 Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers Aaron Charles Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

Oh, I believe he will be fine. This is the best QB in the league and maybe the best ever. - Ned964

Coming off of a broken collarbone, Rodgers is expecting himself to produce an MVP season. He’s done it once after a broken collarbone, so can he do it again? - PackFan2005

3 Drew Brees 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%.

MVP!

Brees is on the back end of his career, but his chances of a Super Bowl haven’t been this high in a while. As one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, Brees is still one of the elites. - PackFan2005

4 Russell Wilson Russell Wilson Russell Carrington Wilson is an American football quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

The Seahawks regressed in the offseason, so they will need Wilson to carry them. He nearly got them to the playoffs in 2017, and that was when they were lacking talent. He is among the top five in the NFL. - PackFan2005

Russell is the goat. Period

5 Carson Wentz Carson Wentz Carson Wentz is an American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles 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 ...read more.

He’s lower because of his torn ACL and MCL. Will he play in week 1? I think he has a chance to go back to MVP form. - PackFan2005

6 DeShaun Watson DeShaun Watson

DeShaun Watson could end up making a big step - 2storm

He was lighting the NFL on fire before he tore his ACL. Now he’s back, and I expect him to be better than ever. - PackFan2005

7 Philip Rivers Philip Rivers Philip Michael Rivers is an American football quarterback for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League.

Believe me, he will make the playoffs this year. The long time veteran is among the NFL’s best, and with plenty of talent around him, gives him good playoff odds. - PackFan2005

8 Ben Roethlisberger Ben Roethlisberger Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger, Sr., nicknamed Big Ben, is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.
9 Matthew Stafford Matthew Stafford John Matthew Stafford is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. ...read more.

Seven may be a little bit high, but Stafford has been an above average quarterback for a few seasons, and though he doesn’t have the most talented team, he’s still pretty good. - PackFan2005

10 Matt Ryan Matt Ryan Matthew Thomas "Matt" Ryan, nicknamed "Matty Ice," is an American football quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

The Contenders

11 Cam Newton Cam Newton Cameron Jerrell Newton is an American football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.
12 Derek Carr Derek Carr Derek Dallas Carr is an American football quarterback for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League.

He’s definitely a talented quarterback. Want evidence? Look at his 2016 season, where he was in the MVP race. I think he can reach that level again in 2018. - PackFan2005

13 Jared Goff Jared Goff

An awful rookie season to a pro bowler? That’s hard to believe, but it happened with Goff, who I think can lead his team on a playoff run in 2018. - PackFan2005

14 Jimmy Garoppolo Jimmy Garoppolo
15 Kirk Cousins Kirk Cousins Kirk Cousins is an American football quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.
16 Dak Prescott Dak Prescott
