1. Joe Burrow

Coming in at the one spot, which may shock some, is the stud quarterback Joe Burrow, who is also looking to build off his numbers last year mainly focusing on limiting turnovers in 2022. Burrow posted 4,611 passing yards and 34 passing touchdowns. These are all great numbers as they were both top 10 in the league among quarterbacks.

Burrow will look to minimize interceptions as he had 14 last year which was in the middle of the league for QBs. He will look to become part of the 5000-yard passing club while shooting for 40 passing touchdowns which are both achievable numbers.

He was given a PFF rating of 91.7 which is stellar for an NFL quarterback so as shocking as it may seem for him to be a part of this list it is because he is poised for another huge year one that will likely be better than the last.

His versatility in the backfield allows him to evade pressure and extend plays, which will be even more evident this year with the improvements made to the lacking offensive line. He is an elite decision-maker with great all-around skills inside the pocket.

Burrow now having at least a year with all his receivers and two years in the offense has him structured for huge success coming in the coming season as he has already led the team to a Super Bowl appearance in only his first whole year starting.
