1. Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes continues to be a must-watch player. With his incredible arm strength, agility, and knack for making jaw-dropping plays, Mahomes is set for another stellar season with the Chiefs. The chiefs also upgraded their receiving corps this offseason so Mahomes will have no shortage of weapons to throw to.

  • Key Stats to Watch:
    • Potential to surpass 5,000 passing yards and 40+ touchdowns.
    • Improved completion percentage and reduced interceptions with a more experienced receiving corps.

2. Justin Herbert – Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert has quickly become one of the league's elite quarterbacks. With Jim Harbaugh now at the helm, Herbert is expected to elevate his game even further. After a few seasons in the NFL, Herbert needs to make a big jump this year if he wants to sit at the table with names like Mahomes, Hurts, or Allen.

  • Key Stats to Watch:
    • Increase in passing yards and touchdowns under Harbaugh's offensive schemes.
    • Enhanced quarterback rating and fewer turnovers with a more structured offensive strategy.

3. Jalen Hurts – Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Hurts continued his breakout career in 2023 and shows no signs of slowing down, especially in fantasy sports. The addition of Saquon Barkley to the backfield should only boost his performance. The Eagles fell way short last year after losing in the Super Bowl the year before so they’ll need Hurts at his best if they stand a chance to make it back to the big game.

  • Key Stats to Watch:
    • Higher total offensive yards, combining passing and rushing.
    • Increase in touchdown passes and overall scoring efficiency due to a balanced offensive attack.

4. Joe Burrow – Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Burrow is solidifying his place as one of the top quarterbacks in the league. Leading the Bengals, his precision and leadership make him a player to keep your eyes on. Burrow’s health has been a factor early in his career. For the Bengals to make any waves this year in a tough division and conference, Joe Cool will have to stay on the field for every game.

  • Key Stats to Watch:
    • Potential to lead the league in passing yards and touchdowns.
    • Improved completion percentage and reduced sack numbers with a fortified offensive line.

5. Aaron Rodgers – New York Jets

Aaron Rodgers is back and ready to make his mark after an injury-shortened first season with the Jets. His veteran savvy and experience will be key for the Jets' offense. Rodgers is determined to succeed in New York after such a disappointing go at it last year. He had the whole season and offseason to recover so you should expect big things from the veteran this season.

  • Key Stats to Watch:
    • Increase in passing yards and touchdowns as Rodgers gets fully integrated into the Jets' system.
    • Improved team performance in the red zone and a higher completion percentage due to Rodgers' experience and precision.
