Who Is the World's No. 1 Quarterback?
Our friends at Sports Info Solutions have an article that takes Bill James' "Starting Pitcher Rankings" and translates them to quarterbacks. The basic idea is to use their Total Points stat to rank quarterbacks over a three-year period, although with more recent games given more weight. Patrick Mahomes is No. 1, but the more interesting findings are below the top three. In particular, Derek Carr is No. 4. That sounds crazy, but it's not out of line with our stats; we've got Carr eighth in passing DVOA for 2019 and third so far in 2020. You might also argue with how low they have Lamar Jackson, which may be overweighting his fumbles.
