Nothing steers NFL teams quite like quarterbacks. It’s possible, not probable, to win in spite of them. It’s preferable, not easy, to land the best of them. They are, more than anyone else, the ones who shape the football landscape, week in and week out.

That’s why we’re ranking all 32 starting signal-callers throughout the 2022 season: to take stock of the most important players in the game, sorting everyone from the bona fide superstars to the QBs who might be worth replacing.

While these rankings don’t necessarily reflect which QBs we’d rather have for the remainder of the year (or their career) — for example, we still trust Tom Brady over, say, Geno Smith — they are designed to showcase which ones are performing and positioned best at this moment.

Now, without further ado, our Week 17 pecking order:
