FF-Winners.com’s Opening Week 2017-8 Quarterback Power Rankings

Quarterbacks are the powerhouses of each NFL team and play a large part in how the team does in the upcoming season. With the 2017/2018 NFL season looming on the horizon, knowing how the rankings stand will go a long way to helping you to place your bets for the upcoming season.

A great example is how the Dallas Cowboys fared at the bookmakers in the 2015 season. Their star quarterback Tony Romo ended up being out for most of the season due to injury. Before his accident, the Cowboys were 3 – 1, but without him, they quickly fell to 1 – 11, seriously disappointing some punters who had placed futures bets. NFL betting is popular across the globe and even betting NZ sites offer a selection of markets. Thus, the more information available about the players, their performance and the teams, the better,

A Season Predictor

Choosing the 2017 power quarterbacks is just an idea of what may happen throughout the season. Of course, there is the potential for injury, surprises and more to upset the apple cart. That being said, most experts tend to agree on the ranked order which does give us some idea of how the season may play out.

Interestingly, some of the quarterbacks for 2017 are brand new to the NFL. Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, for example, is only a tender 22, which may either place him at an advantage over his older opponents, or a disadvantage due to his youth. For this reason, he is last on our list at number 32. Speed and agility may be his, but experience and sheer strength are usually some of the bonuses of age and practice. These newbies on the block are relatively untried, and although we can look back on their play records, how they fare against the big boys is a giant question mark until the season actually begins.

Ranking Considerations

The quarterback rankings have been chosen with care, taking into account both their current career stats, win-loss records, general performances, winning percentages and playoff victories.

Our top five ranked quarterbacks will probably come as no surprise to anyone. They are the pinnacle of the sport currently, with great career stats and a handful of Super Bowl wins between them. Anything can happen on the field, but the fact remains that these super athletes are most likely to take their teams to victory over their younger, less experienced counterparts.

And so, without further ado, we bring you a list of the 32 ranked power quarterbacks for the start of the 2017 season.

Five NFL Teams with Severe Quarterback Problems

CLEVELAND BROWNS

Cleveland is the capital of NFL misery.

Robert Griffin is not the answer! No way!

Some experts are inexplicably positive about Griffin’s possibilities of being successful with the Browns after his stay in Washington broke down over 4 seasons.

The Browns signed the 26-year-old Griffin to a two-year, $15 million agreement with $6.7 million ensured on Thursday.

Considering  his fantastic rookie season in 2012, Griffin has actually regressed. He represented 21 touchdowns  and 22 turnovers in 2013-14. The Redskins didn’t even play Griffin in 2014 as Kirk Cousins won the job.

Griffin will likely be out played once more quickly. The Browns should choose a quarterback, most likely California’s Jared Goff, with the 2nd general choice in the draft on April 28. Cleveland ought to get its leading option, unless Tennessee discovers a trade partner ready to go up to No. 1.

Now Griffin should be the coach?

Josh McCown would be much better fit for that function. The 36-year-old McCown tossed 12 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in 8 starts last season for the Browns.

The Browns continue to be in Quarterback Hell. That’s why they’ll be taking a quarterback at No. 2.

Which other teams remain in QB Hell? The Browns have company!

SAN FRANCISCO

Starter: Blaine Gabbert or Colin Kaepernick.

Outlook: The 49ers have actually discovered little interest in attempting to trade Kaepernick. Gabbert, the former Jaguar, began 8  games last season for the 49ers, tossing 10 touchdowns and 7 INTs.

Option: The 49ers have the 7th choice in the draft and need to draft  either Goff, North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz or Memphis’s Paxton Lynch. Exactly what might doom the 49ers is if the Browns take a quarterback, followed by Dallas (No. 4). A team might make an offer with either the Jaguars (No. 5) or Baltimore (No. 6) to jump ahead of San Francisco.

L.A.

Starter: Case Keenum.

Outlook: The 28-year-old Keenum has actually started 15  games in his four-year career, completing 56.7 percent of his passes. He’s represented 16 touchdowns and 14 turnovers.

Option: The Rams have to grab a quarterback in the draft. They might get fortunate and have Lynch available to them at No. 15, however  they may need to trade to get ahead of San Francisco.

DENVER

Starter: Mark Sanchez.

Outlook: Broncos GM John Elway bungled this scenario, permitting Brock Osweiler to sign with Houston after Peyton Manning’s retirement. Elway traded for the substandard Sanchez, and more assistance is required. The 29-year-old Sanchez has actually represented 99 touchdowns with 108 turnovers and is a professional 56.7 percent passer.

Option: The Broncos ought to sign free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick. He’s a journeyman quarterback, however he had the ability to toss 31 TD passes last season for the New York Jets. Let him take on Sanchez!

New York  JETS

Starter: Geno Smith.

Outlook: The Jets have actually revealed a lack of interest in bringing Fitzpatrick back. It’s unexpected, however it tells us they think receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker had more to do with that TD count than Fitzpatrick.

Smith’s season was messed up last year when a colleague broke his jaw in a locker room run-in. Smith, 25, has tossed 27 TDS and 35 picks.
