NFL MVP Rankings Through Four Weeks

NFL MVP Rankings Through Four Weeks

Charlie Abt

With week four now being complete, 30 of the 32 teams have played one-quarter of their season and the MVP race is starting to take shape, with once again quarterbacks dominating the conversation. The names near the tops of the list are very familiar such as Patrick Mahomes and Russel Wilson, but there is a newcomer in Josh Allen making some noise and looking like a very real candidate for MVP. Here are my rankings for MVP at the quarter-point.

1.It is somewhat surprising that RussellWilson has never received an MVP vote, but here we are and he looking like the frontrunner through the first four weeks of the season. Wilson has led the Seahawks to a 4-0 start. Wilson currently has 16 touchdown passes to just one interception and has a 136.7 passer rating. 

2.If you had told me the beginning of the season that Josh Allen would be in the MVP conversation, I would have thought you were crazy, but here we are. While Allen was good last year and I expected him to be good this year, I didn’t think he would be this good. He always had a cannon for an arm but always had accuracy issues that he has seemed to clean up and it has made him an elite quarterback through this point in the season. The Bills are 4-0 and looking like legit contenders and Allen is playing a huge role in that.

3. Aaron Rodgers is once again playing like an MVP and he is doing it without having his top wide receiver, Devante Adams, for two games. Rogers has led the Packers to a 4-0 start with him throwing 13 touchdown passes to zero interceptions so far. The Packers are one of the top teams in the NFL this year and Rodgers will look to get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2011.

4. Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback, if not player, in the NFL. He dazzles every time he touches the ball and he is must-see TV, and this year has been no different with Mahomes leading the defending Super Bowl champs to a perfect 4-0 start on the young season. He has already racked up 11 touchdown passes this year compared to zero interceptions. While Mahomes also has one of the best-supporting casts around the league, there is no denying the impact he has on his team and how he can take them down that field as quickly as anyone in the league.

While Wilson is the current leader, in my opinion, these rankings could change from week to week and really anyone still has a chance to win with there still being 75% of the season to be played.
