Top 6 Quarterbacks in the NFL in 2022

Whether you are trying to have the best score predictions, win a fantasy game, or just love the NFL, knowing the top quarterbacks in the league is always important because of the drastic changes to the list year to year. 

Top 6 Quarterbacks in the NFL in 2022

Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow took the biggest leaps last year, but someone new is also bound to jump into the top tier this season like Justin Herbert. Here are the top six quarterbacks in the NFL heading into the 2022 season. 

1. Patrick Mahomes

There is a reason his contract is worth half-a-billion dollars. The former MVP and Super Bowl champion took the league by storm his first season behind center, making throws from angles we did not even know were possible. 

His ability to keep the play alive at all times, combined with his immaculate power, make Mahomes the best QB in the NFL today and, on raw talent, maybe the best of all time. 

2. Aaron Rodgers

It's hard to go any further down the list without including the back-to-back reigning MVP. Aaron Rodgers' ability to throw the ball on a rope and hit receivers perfectly in the hands is unbelievable. 

The former Super Bowl champion did lose arguably the best receiver in the league, Davante Adams, in a trade this offseason, so I'm sure we will see the ripple effect on that with Rodgers this year. But until we do, he can't be any lower than the two spot. 

3. Josh Allen

Although Josh Allen doesn't have an MVP or Super Bowl champ on his resume, what the Buffalo Bills QB brings to the field is unarguable. 

Standing at 6-foot-5 and weighing nearly 240 pounds, Allen looks like a running back at times. With his mobility and size, along with his throw power that only Mahomes rivals, Allen is a nightmare for opposing defenses to figure out how to stop. 

The Bills have one of the best teams in the league, so an MVP or a Superbowl doesn't seem out of reach for the 26-year-old. 

4. Tom Brady

There is a tremendous amount of young talent at the QB position right now. But it's hard to go any further down the list without including the greatest quarterback to ever put on a helmet. 

Although he didn't bring home the Lombardi Trophy last year, Tom Brady still managed to lead the league with 5,316 passing yards at the age of 44. Tom Brady continues to escape the grip of Father Time, and until he shows any regression, he's still a top QB in this league.  

5. Joe Burrow

Like Brady, Joe Burrow doesn't necessarily have the top-notch talent, speedy legs, or flashy passes. But what the 25-year-old does at the end of games is unexplainable, already proving himself as a winning quarterback in this league. 

Burrow is one of the scariest and coolest dudes a defense can see at the end of a game. If the Bengals can do a good job protecting him, he will be great in this league for a long time. 

6. Justin Herbert

There's a great argument for Matthew Stafford, Lamar Jackson, or Kyler Murray in this last spot, but hopping on the Justin Herbert train now might make you seem like a genius in a few months. 

Herbert is one of the most purely talented arms in the NFL right now. His ability to throw the ball like a laser and put it only where his receiver can grab it is stuff very few QBs have ever been able to do. 

At 6-foot-6, Herbert has the size along with an underrated ability to get out of the pocket and throw down the field when he has to. Although the 24-year-old has never made the playoffs, the Chargers went all in this offseason to put a playoff roster around him. If all goes right, Herbert will be competing in the MVP race and the playoffs at the end of the year.
