Jameis Winston QB TB 23 2 QB - #10
Over his two seasons in the NFL, Winston has a 15-17 record. He passed for over 4,000 yards in both years (2015 - 4,042 and 2016 - 4,090) with growth in passing TDs (28 - 22 in 2015) in his sophomore year.

Cam Newton QB CAR 28 6 QB - #11
Newton lost his 'Superman' jersey in 2016. It almost looked like a hangover from his loss in the Super Bowl. His completion rate (52.9) fell off the chart with a sharp decline in his yards per rush (4.0) with both numbers being career lows by a wide margin. He missed one game due to a concussion while playing through a right shoulder injury (torn labrum) that requi... Read More
Derek Carr Contract Year Player QB OAK 26 3 QB - #12
After three seasons in the NFL, Carr is almost back to .500 with a 22-25 record. The Raiders' dream of a Super Bowl title ended in Week 16 when Derek suffered a broken leg. He was on pace to set career bests in just about every passing category. Over his last 31 starts, Carr averaged 255 passing yards per game with 60 passing TDs. His game made a nice step forw...

Dak Prescott QB DAL 24 1 QB - #13
A Cowboys fan couldn't ask for a better season from the rookie quarterback sensation. Prescott went 13-3 with an exceptional completion rate (67.8) and a high level of success per pass attempt (8.0). Prescott finished with 3,667 passing yards with 23 TDs and only four Ints. His ability to run (57/282/6) forced defenses to respect him, something they didn't have t... Read More
Philip Rivers QB LAC 35 13 QB - #14
Over 11 seasons as the starting QB for the Chargers, Rivers hasn't missed a game in the regular season leading to a 97-79 record. He's passed for over 4,000 yards in eight of the last nine seasons while averaging 30 passing TDs per season over that span. Only once in his career has Rivers attempted over 600 passes in a season (2015 - 661), which led the league in a... Read More
Matthew Stafford Contract Year Player QB DET 29 8 QB - #17
For the second straight season, Stafford failed to attempt over 600 passes after doing so in each of the previous four years in the league, highlighted by 2011 (663) and 2012 (727) when he led the league. His completion rate (65.3) remained strong and he threw a career low 10 Ints. Over the past six years, Stafford has been an every other year player in passing T... Read More
Kirk Cousins Contract Year Player QB WAS 29 5 QB - #8
In his second season as the starting QB for the Redskins for 16 games, Kirk finished the second highest total in pass yards (4,917) in the league with over a 10 percent opportunity in pass chances (606 - 543 in 2015). Cousins had a regression in passing TDs (25 - 29 in 2015) with growth in his yards per attempt (8.1 - 7.7 in 2015). His completion rate (67.0) remain... Read More
