23. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

  • Average ranking: 24.4
  • Highest ranking: 21
  • Midseason ranking: N/A

This is one that I did not agree with the staff on. I ranked Hurts all the way down at 29 and personally, I do not think he really did enough to be ranked this high, although he does have much more potential than the guys below him.

Hurts was really bad the last two weeks of the season, particularly Week 17. Doug Pederson’s decision to sit him took some of the spotlight off of Hurts’ poor game in which he completed just seven of 20 attempts for 72 yards.

22. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

  • Average ranking: 22.4
  • Highest ranking: 21
  • Midseason ranking: 22

Tua did not move at all in our rankings and that is fair. While there is a ton of potential with Tua and it is silly to completely give up on him, he does seem like the third wheel behind Justin Herbert and Joe Burrow.

Tua had a chance to put the Miami Dolphins in the playoffs and played terribly against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17.

21. Teddy Bridgewater, Carolina Panthers

  • Average ranking: 21.2
  • Highest ranking: 17
  • Midseason ranking: 17

This was not really a case of Teddy B playing bad down the stretch to fall four spots, there were simply quarterbacks that were previously below him that picked it up in the final eight games and moved Teddy B down the list.

Teddy B is only going to get better and could absolutely be a high climber next season with some of the older quarterbacks ahead of him potentially retiring or regressing.

20. Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams

  • Average ranking: 20.6
  • Highest ranking: 19
  • Midseason ranking: 20

Jared Goff is another player who did not move at all in our rankings and that is justified. At this point, Jared Goff kind of is who he is. He is someone who, with the right pieces around him and a great offensive-minded head coach, can make a Super Bowl.

But he is also someone who can single-handily lose a game for you. He is a fine quarterback, he is just criminally overpaid and that hurts the Rams.
