NFL Week 13 QB Power Rankings: Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck merit some MVP buzz too

This segment tolerantly took the week off amid Thanksgiving and now it returns, fatter and more stuffed brimming with quarterbacks than any other time in recent memory. As a matter of fact, I take that back: the quarterback positions are the inverse of my body post-Turkey Day, as they’ve thinned out extensively.

There are currently different reinforcements making begins, including some as a result of damage – Chase Daniel, Jeff Driskel, Colt McCoy – and some in view of execution – Cody Kessler – and it will make for some uglier football than expected down the stretch. That is simply part of life in the NFL, however.

What’s more, it’s absolutely justified, despite all the trouble to recover a couple of MVP competitors in our lives playing at an abnormal state. Important here that any exchange of the MVP grant begins and closures with Drew Brees and Patrick Mahomes, yet the last five weeks of the customary season are tied in with discovering possibility to fill the void in an exhausting race (see: Philip Rivers and Todd Gurley a year ago).

Regularly quarterbacks on groups that are 6-5 won’t get monstrous MVP buzz and there’s a swarmed quarterback field as of now. The Seahawks have kind of opened up their ignoring offense the most recent a month, however, as Wilson’s found the middle value of 31.8 passing endeavors per amusement in the wake of averaging only 26 through the initial seven diversions of the year. In that four amusement extend, Wilson has finished 67.7 percent of his passes, is averaging 243 yards for each diversion and has tossed nine touchdowns to only one capture. Possibly more than all else that gives him VALUE: he’s doing it with a group of no-name folks. Tyler Lockett and David Moore are his best weapons with Doug Baldwin battling through damage to officer on out there. There’s no Legion of Boom assuming the acknowledgment here, despite the fact that the guard is vastly improved than individuals might suspect and the run amusement has been great. The Seahawks have within track at a special case billet and could reel off five wins to complete 11-5; it’s not impossible. In the event that that occurs, Russell merits some buzz for how well he’s played in another framework under uncontrollable issues at hand.

Fortunes is playing his tail off the present moment, thanks to some extent to an incredible hostile line and an extraordinary hostile plan from Frank Reich. Over his last five diversions, Luck has finished in excess of 75 percent of his passes, is averaging 264 yards for each amusement, has 16 touchdowns to only three capture attempts and is averaging 8.9 yards per endeavor. He was simply named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November and he’s not getting enough buzz in MVP circles. Fortunes’ been sacked a solitary time over that range – in 2013 he would get sacked multiple times getting up. The Colts entering the playoff shred with Luck playing this well merits him getting thought.

1
Drew Brees NEW ORLEANS SAINTS QB
Drew Brees is shredding the league on a regular basis and looks incredible. He doesn’t have the most weapons but he does look hellbent on winning the MVP award and taking the Saints to another Super Bowl. They have their first 10-game winning streak since 2009.
2
Our memory of the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes is a close loss followed by them not playing last week. So it’s easy to forget what he was doing up until the break. He should be back at it against Oakland.
3
Philip Rivers will have to carry the Chargers even more now that Melvin Gordon is out for a few weeks.
4
Andrew Luck INDIANAPOLIS COLTS QB
Andrew Luck deserves some MVP chatter for the way he’s played while getting the Colts back in the AFC playoff hunt.
5
Jared Goff LOS ANGELES RAMS QB
Even if Todd Gurley is an MVP candidate (he’s not, in my opinion), it’s Jared Goff who makes the thing go for the Rams.
6
Russell Wilson SEATTLE SEAHAWKS QB
Russell Wilson is secretly coming on strong right now and the Seahawks are poised to make some playoff noise. He should be a fringe MVP guy as well.
7
Cam NewtonCAROLINA PANTHERS QB
Can’t blame Cam Newton for the last two losses — he’s played well. The red zone execution and the defense have to improve.
8
Ben Roethlisberger PITTSBURGH STEELERS QB
Expect a bounceback for Ben Roethlisberger with the Steelers playing at home this week.
9
Tom BradyNEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS QB
Tom Brady’s numbers have been “meh” the last few weeks, but I have a feeling the Patriotsmight just be saving him for the stretch run.
10
Aaron RodgersGREEN BAY PACKERS QB
The Packers are on the verge of playoff elimination and Aaron Rodgers is not playing his best football.
11
Matt RyanATLANTA FALCONS QB
Matt Ryan is still putting up HUGE numbers, but the Falcons aren’t winning games.
12
Deshaun WatsonHOUSTON TEXANS QB
The Texans have won eight straight and have managed to minimize the number of times Deshaun Watson is throwing. He’s still looked great in a return from an ACL injury.
13
Marcus MariotaTENNESSEE TITANS QB
Is Marcus Mariota finally breaking out??? Three of the last four games have been exceptional for the young quarterback, although the Titans aren’t winning every single one.
14
Baker MayfieldCLEVELAND BROWNS QB
Welcome to the Bake Show — Baker Mayfield was locked in against the Bengals and now gets his toughest test yet as a starter against the Texans.
15
Carson WentzPHILADELPHIA EAGLES QB
Carson Wentz hasn’t been bad at all, it’s just a really deep crop of quarterbacks this year. He also isn’t the same guy (yet) that he was pre-ACL.
16
Kirk CousinsMINNESOTA VIKINGS QB
Kirk Cousins has been up and down like crazy, but his most recent game, in prime time against the hated Packers, was up arguably better than Aaron Rodgers.
17
Dak PrescottDALLAS COWBOYS QB
The addition of Amari Cooper and changes to the offense have made Dak Prescott a much better quarterback. Credit, gulp, Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett.
18
Jameis WinstonTAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS QB
The Buccaneers stuck with one quarterback and won a football game. Wild, novel concept.
19
Case KeenumDENVER BRONCOS QB
Is Case Keenum GOOD? He just finds ways to win. It’s really hard to explain.
20
Matthew StaffordDETROIT LIONS QB
The last few weeks have been wildly disappointing for people hoping Matthew Staffordcould break out down the stretch and lead the Lions to some wins. Don’t blame him for the losses, I guess, but still disappointing.
21
Lamar JacksonBALTIMORE RAVENS QB
The Ravens made the switch, and it was smart and while Lamar Jackson isn’t entirely accurate all the time, he’s still explosive and fun as hell to watch.
22
Eli ManningNEW YORK GIANTS QB
There’s talk about Eli Manning being the Giants quarterback in 2019. The world is an amazing place to live, kids.
23
Derek CarrOAKLAND RAIDERS QB
The Raiders are just short on talent on the offensive side at this point, but credit Derek Carrfor fighting hard.
24
Ryan TannehillMIAMI DOLPHINS QB
This is sort of where the drop off starts to happen, although obviously the Dolphins already looked better with Ryan Tannehill under center versus Brock Osweiler.
25
Josh AllenBUFFALO BILLS QB
The kid’s got legs! Josh Allen makes the Bills a much better offense somehow.
26
Josh RosenARIZONA CARDINALS QB
Josh Rosen keeps impressing me every week with some really good throws but there’s not enough protection around him to make him look good over the long course of a game.
27
Chase DanielCHICAGO BEARS QB
Chase Daniel is going to get his second start in as many weeks with Mitchell Trubiskyshelved. Welcome to backup land.
28
Jeff DriskelCINCINNATI BENGALS QB
Did Jeff Driskel look better than Andy Dalton in his relief appearance? It’s a question that’s worth asking.
29
Colt McCoyWASHINGTON REDSKINS QB
The Redskins asked Colt McCoy to do way too much on Thanksgiving and made that game too much of a shootout.
30
Josh McCownNEW YORK JETS QB
The Jets don’t look like a team entirely ready to compete right now, which may cost Todd Bowles his job.
31
Nick MullensSAN FRANCISCO 49ERS QB
The Nick Mullens hype train has derailed.
32
Cody KesslerJACKSONVILLE JAGUARS QB
The Jaguars are floating through space, completely lost.
