PFF’s 2015-2016 NFL quarterback rankings


The regular season is in the books, so it’s time to expand our quarterback rankings to look at the entire league. There are a few external factors considered in this ranking, as I’ve considered situational play, game-to-game consistency, and other factors in addition to each players’ PFF grades when compiling the list. The top-tier has gotten a boost after a late push from two quarterbacks, though there’s never been a better time to be a tier-two or -three quarterback in the league, as rule changes and evolving playmakers have elevated quarterback production more than ever.

Here are the top quarterbacks from the regular season.

(Editor’s note: A quarterback must have recorded 200+ dropbacks this season to qualify for this ranking. For some teams, more than one quarterback may appear on the list.)

Best of the bunch

1. Carson Palmer, Arizona Cardinals, 98.5

The best quarterback in the league from start to finish, Palmer’s season was a fantastic to watch, as he made jaw-dropping throws every week on his way to our top passing grade (97.5). He led the league with 52 big-time throws (BTTs), while throwing the highest percentage of positively-graded throws in the NFL. His week-to-week consistency was unmatched, as he graded positively in all 16 games. Palmer’s career year was one of the best we’ve seen in the PFF era, dating back to 2007, earning him the first team QB slot on our All-Pro roster.

2. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers, 97.9

When healthy, Roethlisberger was right up there with Palmer with regard to downfield, pinpoint accuracy, actually edging him slightly to lead the league in highest percentage of BTTs, at 8.49 percent. He did make a few questionable decisions throughout the season, but he’s still playing the best football of his career while leading perhaps the league’s most dangerous passing attack.

3. Tom Brady, New England Patriots, 92.9

Brady started the season in dominant fashion, but a rash of injuries along the offensive line and within his receiving corps tempered the raw numbers. Even with a lesser supporting cast, he continued to play well, even though the gaudy numbers tapered off. Brady was the league’s best at taking care of the ball (turnover-worthy throws on only 1.11 percent of his attempts), and his 14 touchdowns thrown under pressure were the most of any QB in the PFF era (2007).

4. Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers, 87.0

After looking very much like the same quarterback his first four years in the league, Newton took a massive step forward in 2015. His running ability makes him the league’s most unique quarterback, as he can move the chains as a short-yardage runner, or when things break down in the pocket. Most impressive was the way he zipped the ball around the field accurately, something he’d struggled with early in his career. Newton’s 41 BTTs ranked fifth in the league, and he dropped his TWP percentage to 3.06 percent, good for 12th in the NFL.

5. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks, 87.0

A late push moves Wilson into the top tier, as he was outstanding in the second half of the season (outside of a poor game against the Cardinals in Week 10). His PFF pass grade of 86.4 ranked fifth in the league, and he supplemented it with his usual scrambling ability at 91.2. Wilson had the second-lowest percentage of negatively-graded throws, and he led the league with 15 touchdowns on deep passes (20+ yards in air).

6. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints, 87.6

While the Saints struggled as a team, Brees quietly performed up to his previous levels of play, aside from a few games battling through injury. He finished strong with the league’s highest grade in the fourth quarter of the season. Despite missing a game and playing Week 2 with an injured shoulder, Brees ranked second in the league with 1,180 yards on deep passes, while finishing third in BTTs (43). He cut back on the turnover-worthy plays after an uncharacteristic 2014, as the veteran still looks like he’s capable of elite play.

 

Tier two

7. Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals, 84.7

Dalton’s career year was railroaded by a thumb injury, but he had made great strides at spreading the ball around to his playmakers, while ranking 10th in turnover-worthy throw percentage (3.01 percent).

8. Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders, 82.5

Perhaps the league’s most-improved quarterback, Carr took to Oakland’s new receiving corps of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree and made a number of impressive downfield throws. He finished fourth in BTTs, with 42.

9. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons, 82.1

While the overall stats don’t stick out, Ryan made the most of his one good playmaker (WR Julio Jones), quietly making quality throws to move the chains. Ryan lacked the flashy plays, and despite a high interception total of 16, he only threw 20 turnover-worthy passes on the season.

10. Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo Bills, 81.7

A surprising inclusion into the top 10, Taylor made some of the best throws of the year. It was seemingly a weekly event watching him drop a perfect throw in the bucket down the field, but he still has great strides to make in the short (39th-best passing grade) and intermediate game (24th-best passing grade) to take the next step in his development.

11. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers, 80.7

Rodgers had a strong start, but he clearly wasn’t the same this season when working within the flow of the offense. He still made the special throws for which he’s known (BTT percentage of 5.17 percent ranked 10th), but the easier positives were lacking (19th).

12. Sam Bradford, Philadelphia Eagles, 81.5

Bradford’s grade is a case of not missing a high percentage of throws and some bad interception luck. He got more comfortable as the season went along, and quietly played better than perception or his numbers would indicate.

13. Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins, 78.3

A strong finish to the season moved Cousins up the ranks, as he cut down on early-season questionable decisions and allowed his playmakers to make plays. His accuracy percentage of 79.3 led the league.

14. Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers, 77.1

No quarterback faced more pressured dropbacks than the 282 faced by Rivers, and he ranked fourth in the league in pressured accuracy percentage (71.0 percent).

15. Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears, 77.1

There were some ups and downs to Cutler’s game, much like in year’s past, but he finished with positive grades in 10 of his 16 games.

16. Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota Vikings, 76.8

Another quarterback who is more about not missing throws than making big-time throws, Bridgewater had the third-lowest percentage of negatively-graded throws in the league, but ranked 16th in BTT percentage, at 4.38 percent.

 

Tier three

17. Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 71.8

Winston lived up to his boom-or-bust reputation, finishing seventh in big-time throw (BTT) percentage at 6.02 percent, but sixth in turnover-worthy play (TWP) percentage, at 5.09 percent.

18. Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars, 69.7

Bortles took big strides in his second year, taking advantage of downfield playmakers to lead the league with 1,330 yards on deep passes. Similar to Winston, Bortles was boom-or-bust, with 35 BTTs and a league-high 38 TWPs.

19. Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins, 73.4

A disappointing fourth-year for Tannehill, who posted the lowest grade of his career and finished with the 13th-highest percentage of turnover-worthy throws, at 4.00 percent.

20. Brock Osweiler, Denver Broncos, 71.3

Osweiler had some positive moments in his first extended action as a starter, finishing right in the middle in accuracy percentage, at 73.4 percent (18th of 37 qualifiers).

21. Brian Hoyer, Houston Texans, 70.6

After settling in as the Texans’ starter, Hoyer put together a few strong games, though he finished 30th in accuracy percentage, at 70.5 percent.

22. Alex Smith, Kansas City Chiefs, 70.2

It’s the same story for Smith, who does a nice job of taking care of the ball (fifth-lowest turnover-worthy play percentage, at 2.47 percent) but 24 QBs had more than his 17 big-time throws.

23. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions, 69.8

Split the season in half, and you get two different stories. Second-half Stafford was one of the league’s best, but he ranked dead last among QBs for the first eight games of the year.

24. Eli Manning, New York Giants, 67.5

Manning had his moments, but overall, he received good interception luck (fourth-most TWPs at 30, only 14 interceptions) and incredible play from Odell Beckham Jr. certainly helped his cause.

25. Ryan Fitzpatrick, New York Jets, 59.6

It was a very similar season for Fitzpatrick, who put the ball in harm’s way quite a bit (32 TWPs), but finished with only 15 interceptions. He did a fine job making plays as a scrambler, finishing with a 92.6 grade on the ground.

26. Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens, 68.5

It was not a great start to the season for Flacco before getting hurt in Week 11. His grade when pressured was the fifth-worst in the league.

27. Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans, 64.5

There’s a lot to like about Mariota’s skillset and using his quick release and athleticism in the NFL, but he has to improve his downfield accuracy percentage (20.4 percent, ranked last in the league).

28. Josh McCown, Cleveland Browns, 64.3

McCown performed well in challenging areas, such as under pressure and on third down, but he also made a number of questionable decisions along the way, finishing 10th in TWP percentage, at 4.51 percent.

 

Bottom of the league

29. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos, 60.0

It was a rough season for the future Hall-of-Famer, looking like a fraction of his former self for much of the year, while adding surprisingly poor decision-making into the mix. However, he still throws with great anticipation, and his knowledge of the game gives the Broncos the best chance of making a postseason run as they head into the playoffs.

30. Matt Hasselbeck, Indianapolis Colts, 69.8

Hasselbeck kept the Colts’ offense afloat for a few weeks, using the quick passing game to overcome concerns on the offensive line, but he couldn’t maintain it, further confirming his status as a good backup, and not much more at this point.

31. Blaine Gabbert, San Francisco 49ers, 66.5

Expectations weren’t high for Gabbert, given his poor play in Jacksonville, but he showed that he’s at least a capable backup.

32. Nick Foles, St. Louis Rams, 53.9

A strong four-game start turned disastrous quickly, as Foles struggled through his last seven games of action. His accuracy was all over the place, as he finished 33rd in accuracy percentage (69.4 percent).

33. Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers, 48.6

Aside from a strong game against Pittsburgh in Week 2, not much went right for Kaepernick, who finished 35th in accuracy percentage and graded out poorly against pressure.

34. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts, 47.3

A poor start to the season was further derailed by injury, as Luck simply didn’t look right from the start. Even with only seven games under his belt, he still ranks seventh in the league with 25 turnover-worthy plays.

35. Johnny Manziel, Cleveland Browns, 50.7

There were some positives, but Manziel still struggled to make plays from the pocket, while earning cumulative grades of -12.9 under pressure and -11.5 against non-blitzes.

36. Matt Cassel, Dallas Cowboys, 50.6

Cassel struggled in his eight starts, posting just two positively-graded games.

  • Mike

    PFF’s Stafford rankings have been brutal all season.

    • BBBYpsi

      It is a joke they put Stafford #23 he dealt with the worst run game in football all year. First half of the season was not his fault. Almost zero pass protection & the play calling by Lombardi was horrific. Last 7 games completion % almost 80% Td’s 17 to only 1 int. & did this with no run game or threat of a run game & basically no TE’s always hurt & when a few games we had a healthy TE zero blocking from them & had the drops. A very hurt Calvin who could not get seperation along with other receivers. For the year he still ended up at 67% completion % & 97 QBR with 32 TD’s to 14 int’s & threw for over 4200 yards. Ranked in top 10 in every postive stat for QB’s this year & still give him a ranking of #23 behind QB’s like Bradford,Hoyer & Tannehill give me a break

  • Jason Williams

    I think as long as you have a Tier 2 or higher, you have to be happy. I don’t think Jay is a Tier 2 QB but I’m comfortable with him being at the BOTTOM of that list.

  • Jason

    LMAO @ Eli Manning being 24th. All credibility lost. What a garbage ranking system.

    • Frank

      Eli Manning is a durable, chuck and duck type guy, I’ve never seen a “veteran” guy make more horrible decisions under pressure. That’s been his MO his entire career. His best quality has been WRs making insanely lucky catches in the playoffs (Tyree)… otherwise? an INT machine. 17, 18, 20, 25, 16, 27 ints per season?!!?!?

      • Jason

        You’re a goddamn moron. Ereck Flowers and Marshall Newhouse was by far the worst OT tandem in the NFL. Eli still threw for 35 TDs, 14 INTs, 4400+ yards with both of his OTs getting obliterated in pass-protection all year.

        • Frank

          and the years he threw 27 ints? it was around his “superbowl” years he was over 20 twice… if it weren’t for his 2 .500 record, playoff runs, he’d be a serious bust. way behind Roeth and Rivers.

          • Jason

            The year he threw 27 INTs was during the dying stages of Kevin Gilbride’s outdated high-risk, high-reward run-and-shoot offense. Gilbride was fired and hasn’t been in the NFL since.

            Two, they were 10-6 and 9-7 during the regular season when they won the SB. That is not .500.

            Three, there is no “if” to the discussion. If the queen had balls she would be the king.Those playoff runs happened, so to dismiss them makes no sense. Plus, you’re supposed to judge QBs by how they perform on the biggest stage anyways, that’s kinda the point. 2 playoff runs > 0 playoff runs (Rivers).

          • Frank

            you mean other than squeaking into the playoffs twice and getting on a fortunate run, zero playoff wins in the last 15 years. always playing in the wildcard week. it’s ok to be lucky. in these years of parity there are no dynasties. except for Pittsburgh, New England, Denver, etc etc.

          • Rev Ravens

            Frank, Sounds like a lot of excuse making. I am grateful for Flacco’s Super Bowl run but….. frustratingly marginal, like Eli. Rev Ravens

          • BITW44

            He has more career Yards and TD’s then both Roethlisberger and Rivers. And 2 superbowls.

          • BITW44

            AND he has only had two years with a stud WR or weapon. Look at the guys he won with throughout his career. Hakeem Nicks, Steve Smith and Mario Manningham are all out of the league, and those are the guys he was throwing to the majority of the time.

          • Obae Lopez

            Philip Rivers sat out his first two years so of course eli manning is going to have more touchdowns

          • Obae Lopez

            Philip rivers sat out his first two years so of course eli manning is going to have more TDs

          • scott kohler

            Don’t forget, more picks. Averages one of the highest Interception per game numbers

        • Jamal Wright

          U DUMB ASS ! READ FUCKKA ! FRANK IS SIMPLY ASKING WHAT OTHER QB IN THIS DAMN LEAGUE WOULD BE ABLE TO PUT UP SOME OF THOSE SAME NUMBERS ( 4,432 YDS, 35 TDS, 14 INTS AND A QB RATING OF 93.6 ) WITH THEEEE WORST OT TANDEM IN THE LEAGUE ? I’LL WAIT FOR YOUR ANSWER

      • Jason

        To put in perspective for you:

        Out of 76 qualified OTs, Ereck Flowers was ranked 76th. Dead last. He allowed 5 sacks, 17 hits, and 47 hurries.

        Out of 76 qualified OTs, Marshall Newhouse was ranked 68th. He allowed 5 sacks, 7 hits, and 39 hurries.

        Most QBs would be hopeless playing with that kind of pressure.

        Eli Manning quarterbacked an offense that ranked 6th in Points and 8th in Yards with far and away the worst OT play you could possibly have.

      • MikeC4

        Please don’t talk about Eli Manning. You sound incredibly ignorant.

    • mac2po

      What is even more laughable is Matt Ryan at 9. There reasoning is HE made the most out of his one good target (Julio), while obviously OBJ was the reason for Eli’s success. TWP also needs some work if they are really gonna hold that over the QB’s head but not add to score when a receiver causes a tipped ball – interception.

      PFF needs to fix their QB grading metrics before people actually start giving these rankings credibility.

      • Scott Kohler

        Matt Ryan was complete and utter trash. 9 was way too high for such an average. 16 should be just fine for him. 21 TDs to 16 ints?! That’s better than 9?! Rethink your irrational opinion.

        • mac2po

          Haha, i agree with you man. There is no way he even should be in the top 15.

        • [email protected]

          This is one (of many) flaws in their grading system. Disastrous or amazingly great and impactful plays are under-emphasized because of the play by play grading scale. IE you can only gain or lose so many points on one play. A pick-6 almost guarantees a loss. How many QBs throw a pick-6 and win the game without the opposing QB throwing one too? I mean it happens, but what like 5%?

    • MosesZD

      You know these guys don’t actually understand football. Certainly the site founder, an Englishman whose likely never played a down at any level doesn’t beyond the usual media cliche’s.

      So their grades are based on some 1970’s cliche’ of deep ball passing even though, statistically, it’s what happens with efficiency that drives an effective passing game and an effective offense. I’m sure they’d have Joe Montana down there with Alex Smith since he was, like Smith, a dink-and-dunk passer who rarely threw deep and, when he did (especially over the middle) he wasn’t that great.

      In short, they have an Al Davis way of looking at it. Plus they never factor in the impact of other players and can’t figure out the whole chicken-egg problem in their evaluations.

      • [email protected]

        Yes i agree. PFF is garbage from top to bottom. I don’t understand how they can say that Carson Palmer was great from start to finish. That 36-6 game at home vs Seattle? The playoffs where he had what? 8 turnovers in 2 games? He started strong and finished weak.

    • Jeffrey Rutt

      I agree with you, I just made a statement above.

  • southsidechicago

    cutler 15th – average, as always. not good enough.

    • dlund6cutler

      hey look at the , technically he could have been 14 because him and River had the same rating but i’m cool with 15

      • southsidechicago

        14,15, still average.

  • Stefan

    So… Osweiler, Hoyer, Bridgewater, Cutler, etc.. are all better than Eli Manning, according to PFF’s state of the art arbitrary ranking system? Lol… does anyone actually take this site seriously?

    • S Mills

      Reading comprehension and general intelligence must not be your strongsuit.

    • dlund6cutler

      Someone’s salty about where Eli is ranked. Did you ever think that Eli just had a bad year. These ranking aren’t about who was better in the past or the future it’s about who was better this year.

    • The Mysteries of Bob

      I am fine with Cutler, Eli is basically his version with ringz.

      Hall of famer that missed the playoffs in six of his last seven seasons, at least he can keep his playoff record immaculate.

    • TrillyMadison

      It’s less a knock on Eli and more a knock on New York. The line was awful. The skill players outside of OBJ were awful. No QB in the league could have survived a season with this mess and finished in the first-tier.

  • anon76returns

    I’d love to know where P Manning would have been ranked excluding that disaster of a KC game (which he clearly had no business suiting up for). My recollection was that from the Det. (week 3) to the Indy game (week 9) Manning had six consecutive positively graded games, and had a small positive grade again vs. SD. In addition, the last two games prior to the KC game were his best of the season, with a ~+3.0 grade vs. GB and ~+5.5 @Indy. I’m guessing without the KC game (~-12, the lowest grade PFF has ever given a QB for a single game) that Manning would have graded out right around Rodgers, in the mid-upper Tier 2.

    • TrillyMadison

      I agree with what you’re saying, but I doubt Manning sans-KC game would have been that high. Week 3 to 9 he was decent, yet he was far from being PEYTON MANNING.

      • anon76returns

        Grading out in the mid-upper Tier 2 is far from PEYTON MANNING. PEYTON MANNING was PFF’s #1 QB in something like 5 of the 10 years that PFF has existed, and I don’t think he was ever out of the top 5 except for maybe last year and 2011 when he was injured.
        Mid-upper tier 2 is merely being a step above competent, which is sadly all I’m looking for from Manning in the playoffs (which means greatly reducing the INTs).

    • BBBYpsi

      They ranked Brock in his just few games. Manning had more int’s then TD’s & was horrible but because he is the media favorite they would not dare to rank him. It is a joke.

      • anon76returns

        ??
        They DID rank Manning. 29th. 9 spots below where they ranked Osweiler.
        If PFF didn’t rank players because of how well liked they are, they wouldn’t have a business model.

  • Sifter

    Forget Eli, I think the two guys sandwiching him in these rankings (Stafford and Fitzpatrick) were more productive than a lot of the guys ahead of them on the list. They didn’t pass the eye test so much though, admittedly, and that’s the point of this site I suppose.

    Also, Sam Bradford and Matt Ryan will be pretty happy to be this high I would imagine.

  • twelsh36446

    This rag forum has no idea how to rank anything. I’m not paying for another years subscription. Aaron Rodgers was a tier 2 QB? Come on man. I’m no Rodgers fan, but we all know better. Sure he had a few bad games, but look at where they’re right now. In the Playoffs.

    • TrillyMadison

      Overall, of course not. But the rankings are about this regular season. And Aaron Rodgers wasn’t Aaron Rodgers during the 15-16 regular season. Jordy’s injury hurts, obviously hampering a now-suspect receiving corp. There was zero semblance of a run game throughout most of the season, either due to simple ineffectiveness or a lack of dedication. The line was banged up and mediocre. Green Bay’s offense was a second-tier unit during this season. And Aaron Rodgers was Green Bay’s offense this year.

      Everything clicked today in Washington, just like I expected. We’re talking about AARON RODGERS here. But this piece isn’t about the playoffs.

  • BBBYpsi

    Stafford #23 what a joke.

  • Jeffrey Rutt

    Cousins was better then Tyrod Taylor,Sam Bradford, its close with Derek Carr but think Cousins was better, an I think tthey messed up with Tyrod an Winston they should be flipped, Winston was better then Tyrod an probably Tedd

  • MikeC4

    PFF’s metrics have made less and less sense.

    Andrew Luck and Eli Manning are bottom of the barrel and yet I would be least surprised to see both of those two shoot to the top. Not here, I mean. In the real world.

    Derek Carr is one the most inaccurate passers I watched last season.

    Aaron Rodgers got low grades in games where everyone else saw something different.

    Eli Manning had an unreal game with 4tds and 4 incompletions and he’s this low.

    Context is missing here I suspect. Big Ben when he’s healthy threw more tds than ints when he returned. PFF looks ridiculous too often now.

  • AC2

    How is Eli penalized for having Odell Beckham while Ben isn’t for having Antonio Brown, who is a better receiver btw? And Eli plays every game while Ben is always injured and misses games. So the sample size is unbalanced. You can’t justify that ridiculously high ranking by simply saying, “when Ben played he was pinpoint accurate”. Even worse, Ben wasn’t pinpoint accurate. It’s strange for a site who proclaims to deal in facts to get into projected stats. Bad job by PFF.

  • Joe DiMauro

    Steve Palazzolo, please just quit your job. I normally dont attack someone personally but even you must know, these rankings are horrendous. Its pretty simple to rate QB’s. So if your a GM today are you drafting Hoyer over Manning? I guess so based on Steve’s view.

    PFF is a joke, and i know they write things like this for the exact reason we are commenting. They are a business and hits/clicks are all they care about. Being accurate is second. So with that, they go with the popular view of the public. Andrew Luck, who is about to sign the biggest contract in NFL history is at the bottom of your list. Your lucky PFF is all about the money because NO ONE else would hire you for your mediocre and INACCURATE work.

    • Tiago Paiva

      I totally support your point of view. I can’t trust in PFF anymore. Maybe, some guys get together and open a company for REAL ANALYSIS

  • Bert Bennett

    Drew Brees ranked 6th, was injured, but in 2014 and 2015 he tossed 62 TDs and 28 INTs in the same time frame Eli (ranked 23rd) tossed 65 TDs and 28 INTs… Brees won 2 more games in that same time frame two 7-9 seasons as opposed to Eli’s two 6-10 seasons…

    So the 14 INTs in 2014 and 2015 was two straight seasons of being “lucky”…. nothing is mentioned of the new scheme under Mac, attribute it to Odell… how about he had no solid TE play or a running game with a swiss cheese Oline patched together with rooks and retreads and still put up solid numbers in 14 and 15… PFT can kiss my ass… in 2014- 2015 65 TDs and 28 INTs…Keep up the good work, HACKS…

    Giants fans….you guys think Buffalo would do Taylor and a 5th rounder for Eli and 4 first rounders, plus a 2nd in 2018? I’d add a 3rd this year if they balk.

    THoughts?

    This PFF site is garbage. Eli is ranked great everywhere else. He had one of his best years with no offensive line. Eli haters suck and know nothing about football. Yeah give odell the credit ridiculous. The guy finally gets a good receiver and now he is good because of his receiver. What did shockey, smith, and others do when they left new york. I will take Eli all day long. Morons. Look up his NFL stats. Is he Brady of course not. When Eli does good now it because of someone else when is does bad its his fault
