8. Jared Goff (LW: 10)
Goff is turning into one of the best players in the game, with help from elite schemes and weapons galore. Against the Chargers, Goff threw for 354 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Rams stay undefeated. With Goff and head coach Sean McVay scheming, Los Angeles is going to be brutally tough to beat.
7. Ben Roethlisberger (LW: 9)
Roethlisberger is moving up to the seventh spot. The Steelers beat the Buccaneers for their first win of the year, with Big Ben going for 353 yards and three touchdowns while only tossing a single interception. He’s leading the league in passing yards, and now gets the Ravens coming to town.
6. Patrick Mahomes (LW: 7)
Mahomes has been the revelation of both the NFL and Kansas City alike, a city starved for a franchise quarterback. Through three games, Mahomes has 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions, along with an absurd 9.63 yards per attempt. The youngster will slow down a bit at some point, but how much? For now, he’s the NFL MVP.
5. Russell Wilson (LW: 5)
Wilson has absolutely no help. Go ahead and try to name the starting wide receivers and tight end on the Seahawks. Quit? OK. Somehow, Wilson has still managed seven touchdowns and a win for a team long used to contending, and now squarely in rebuild mode.
