1 — Cam Newton
He’s not playing like an MVP right now, but Cam is clearly the best #1 in the league.
2 — Matt Ryan
Nate Peterman gave Ryan a run for his money, but Matt Ryan is still the best #2 in the league. He saw a decline in production last season, as did the entire offense, when Kyle Shanahan left. The pressure is on Ryan to get the offense back to the 2016 level, and he will have the weapons to play with.
3 — Russell Wilson
Wilson is a magician outside the pocket. He has to be since his offensive line can’t form a pocket for him. Wilson deserves more than this organization has put around him offensively, but maybe a rookie running back and veteran Brandon Marshall can bring some kind of help. Maybe.
4 — Deshaun Watson
The rookie wasn’t perfect, but he was the quarterback Houston has needed before going down with a knee injury. Reports say his rehab has gone well, so we hopefully can expect Watson to pick up where he left off last season.
5 — Dan Bailey
That’s right, a kicker. Bailey is one of the best kickers in NFL history, ranking second in career field goal percentage (88.15%). He’s currently one of the best kickers in the league, and he’s definitely a better player than our quarterback choices: Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor, and Blake Bortles.
