4. Kyler Murray - Arizona Cardinals

One of the youngest and most explosive running quarterbacks this league has, Kyler Murray has the ability to break out of getting sacked and scramble puts him ahead of most other quarterbacks on this list.

Not just running when he scrambles, he is also able to throw the ball with incredible accuracy when scrambling out of the pocket, as he had the best Pro Football Focus grade while scrambling with a grade of 91.3.

Even though Kyler lost Christian Kirk to Jacksonville and Chase Edmonds to Miami, he still has one of the best wide receivers in the game in DeAndre Hopkins. An incredibly exciting matchup between Hopkins and J.C. Jackson will be fun to watch, and with Kyler throwing him the ball, that makes this matchup even more exciting.

Murray has the talent to put up an MVP performance on any given week. That feature alone will put him in the top five of almost everybody's lists, and with his game still improving, he slides in at number four in the best quarterbacks the Chargers have to face this year.

3. Russell Wilson - Denver Broncos

The newest AFC West quarterback, Russell Wilson has been one of the top players in the NFL for years. The nine-time Pro Bowler and one-time Super Bowl champion with the Seahawks now finds himself in the most competitive division, facing Herbert, Mahomes, and Carr for six of his games this year. Even with Wilson sitting out for a few games this season, he still had an impressive year, throwing for 25 touchdowns and just six interceptions.

Russell Wilson is the piece that the Broncos needed on offense to get back to their Super Bowl contending years as they had in 2015 with Peyton Manning. The battle between Herbert and Wilson is going to be a fun storyline for years to come. Wilson's ability to create something out of nothing at any given point in the game will make him a dangerous quarterback in this schedule, putting him at third on the list.
