I'm in a similar boat to this point. My top 5 so far are Brees, Mahomes, Ryan, Goff, and Luck

Ranking all 32 teams' quarterback play through Week 11 | NFL Analysis | Pro Football Focus

 

As we close the door on Week 11 in the NFL, it’s time to look at Pro Football Focus’ season grades for all 32 teams’ quarterback play so far this season. The best of the best have likely already punched their tickets to the playoffs, while the signal-callers nearing the middle of the pack and below have work to do in order to get back on track under center.

The longer this season goes, Drew Brees looks more and more like the best quarterback leading the best team in football. And that, Gregg Rosenthal writes, is why he's the prohibitive MVP favorite. Plus, updated quarterback rankings!

The NFL season began with the quarterback position looking deeper than ever and for once everything is going as planned. The top half of my quarterback rankings below is as strong as it's been since I started this exercise in 2014.
 
Aaron Rodgers has 20 touchdowns with one interception and it's considered a down year. Cam Newton is on pace for nearly 4,000 passing yards and 32 touchdowns to go with his usual rushing stats, which would normally be good for a top-five showing. He's 10th. Baker Mayfield is having one of the best statistical seasons for a rookie quarterback ever and he's No. 15. Before he got hurtAndy Dalton was on pace to top 30 touchdowns, which would've been good for the second-highest total of his career, yet he's right in the middle of the rankings, just like he always is.
 
Stats are increasingly tricky to compare across eras, and eras can change fast. Nearly half the league's QBs are throwing for as many yards per attempt as Peyton Manning's career average. The best way to evaluate players is the same as it ever was -- compare them against their competition.
 
Below is my best attempt at taking a snapshot of the position through nearly three quarters of the season, using weekly grades from GamePass watching. The next complete 1-32 rankings will take place after the regular season ends.
 
NOTE: This is the Quarterback Index. The QBs are ranked based on 2018 play alone. The arrows reflect the changes since the midseason 32-man rankings.

It's good to see two youngsters on the list - bodes well for the future of football.

 

Brees ought to be in the GOAT conversation.

Josh Allen has a ton of upside if he continues to take to coaching in order to leverage his physical gifts.  The pass to Foster in the Jags game was enough to think the future is better than it has been in years.

It was an overall encouraging performance that should provide hope for a further ascension.

It's still too early to judge. Teams will scout him in the offseason and the challenge will be for him to overcome tendencies. 25 or 26 games before we know. Right now a better Bortles is probably about right.

QB INDEX
 
0ap3000000996562.jpg&f=jpg&w=1280&c=80
 
This offseason will be unique because there are only three teams truly in need of answers at the quarterback position, writes Gregg Rosenthal. What should the Giants, Jaguars and Redskins do in 2019?
 
"There aren't many teams searching for a starting quarterback" is a statement that has almost never been true in the NFL. It is absolutely true at the moment.
 
The unprecedented depth at the position will impact this offseason's free-agent market and NFL draft, with fewer teams than a year ago likely to spend top dollar or a top pick on the position. While the market for available veteran quarterbacks still has to shake out, I see only three teams that appear absolutely desperate to find a new signal-caller this offseason.
 
Before getting to the quarterback rankings, let's look at which teams could be diving back into the QB pool this offseason.

NFL Week 14 QB Power Rankings: Putting Patrick Mahomes' ridiculous season in perspective

 

 
There are just four weeks left in the NFL season. While that's sad, it does offer an opportunity to actually look at what's happening with some production from a historical perspective. We all know what Patrick Mahomes has done this year. It's been one of the biggest stories of the season. But what's stunning is Mahomes' production hasn't trailed off since his historical start to the season.
 
At this point Mahomes leads the NFL in touchdowns (41) and Adjusted Yards/Attempt (10.0). Somehow he doesn't lead the NFL in passing yards; Ben Roethlisbergerpassed him this past week and has a slight lead. Mahomes is going to blitz past 4,000 yards this weekend and it would be surprise if he didn't hit 50 passing touchdowns at some point, especially with Kareem Hunt now gone and the Chiefsforced to lean on the passing game. KC won't sit guys, not with the Chargers chasing them and needing to hold off New England. This is going to be a massive season when Mahomes finishes. 
 
But where does it stand historically? Currently Mahomes has 3,923 yards and those 41 touchdowns with just 10 interceptions while completing 66.9 percent of his passes. Here's the list of people to ever throw for 3,900 yards, 40 touchdowns, 15 or less picks with 65 percent completion:
 
Patrick Mahomes (2018)
Aaron Rodgers (2016)
Peyton Manning (2013)
Drew Brees (2011)
Aaron Rodgers (2011)
Tom Brady (2007)
Peyton Manning (2004)
Kurt Warner (1999)
