13
Josh Allen
QB Buffalo Bills

2020 stats: 729 yards | 70.4 completion % | 6 TDs | 0 INTs | 9.0 YPA | 84.8 QBR

Last Week: 18

Allen moves up five spots this week. Forget for a minute that he’s leading the league in passing yards. Instead, look at his completion rate and interception columns. If Allen can marry those attributes with his mobility and cannon arm, the Bills are a real contender.

12
Ben Roethlisberger
QB Pittsburgh Steelers

2020 stats: 540 yards | 68.4 completion % | 5 TDs | 1 INTs | 7.4 YPA | 48.6 QBR

Last Week: 11

Roethlisberger had a beautiful 84-yard touchdown pass to Chase Claypool, providing hope he gets rolling as the year progresses. So far, he’s been average for the most part, although he’s on pace for 4,000+ yards and 40 touchdowns. Could be worse for the 38-year-old.

11
Jared Goff
QB Los Angeles Rams

2020 stats: 542 yards | 69.0 completion % | 3 TDs | 1 INTs | 9.3 YPA | 77.7 QBR

Last Week: 12

Goff is close to cracking the top 10 after a miserable 2019 campaign. Against the Eagles, Goff came out firing and staked the Rams to a 21-9 lead. All told, he was terrific, hitting all but one pass under 10+ yards while tossing three touchdown passes.

10
Tom Brady
QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2020 stats: 456 yards | 64.8 completion % | 3 TDs | 3 INTs | 6.4 YPA | 47.8 QBR

Last Week: 9

Brady falls one spot, but really, it’s because of other achievements and not his miscues. Yes, the interceptions need to be corrected, but he could have thrown for 400 yards and a few more scores if not for drops. Brady looked like his old self against Carolina. Now, time to cut out the mistakes.

9
Deshaun Watson
QB Houston Texans

2020 stats: 528 yards | 66.2 completion % | 2 TDs | 2 INTs | 7.8 YPA | 54.9 QBR

Last Week: 5

Watson needed to fall a few spots. Look, his coach stinks, the receivers are average and the line is bad, but Watson also gets some blame. The ball needs to come out faster. Will Fuller can’t go an entire game without a target. Watson is an elite player, but he’s looked pedestrian early on.

8
Kyler Murray
QB Arizona Cardinals

2020 stats: 516 yards | 66.7 completion % | 2 TDs | 2 INTs | 6.6 YPA | 83.7 QBR

Last Week: 10

The Cardinals are 2-0, and Murray is at the forefront of the renaissance. So far, the former No. 1 overall pick has faced two excellent defensive fronts and picked them apart, using his arm and legs  (158 rushing yards) to win both games. The YPA and interception totals aren’t ideal, but the strides are large and evident.
