NFL quarterback rankings 2021 – How all 32 teams’ QBs stack up and weekly big takeaways


We are through five weeks of the 2021 season, and we saw many MVP-caliber performances in Week 5. Lamar Jackson led a big comeback, Josh Allen bested Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert topped Baker Mayfield in a shootout win. Injuries also popped back up, with Russell Wilson expected to miss some time after rupturing a tendon in a finger on his right hand.

On a weekly basis throughout the season, I will rate my current confidence in each quarterback’s play. Who is unstoppable and in the MVP conversation? Who is struggling and needs to find consistency? Who is rising, and who is falling, after each week’s game slate? Which rookies are exceeding expectations, and which veterans are leading their offenses to playoff contention? And remember, this is based on the present, not future potential.

True backups will not be included, though teams with multiple legitimate starting options might have multiple QBs listed in the rankings. Backups in line to play for injured starters will also be ranked. The list will be accompanied each week with some of the biggest takeaways and lingering thoughts from the recent performances under center, including what both the tape and numbers say about some of the game’s starting quarterbacks. Here are this week’s QB rankings and some notes regarding the position.
