An interesting statistical comparison:
How do you Overcomer 10 penalties on the offense. Every time he went forward. The team went backwards. He was the only good thing about it
Tier 1: Elite
Tier 2: Perennial Pro Bowlers, All-Pro plausible
Tier 3: Good chance at Pro Bowl, All-Pro Surprising
8. Kyler Murray
9. Dak Prescott
10. Justin Herbert
11. Joe Burrow
12. Ryan Tannehill
13. Lamar Jackson
14. Kirk Cousins
Tier 4: Solid Starters, Rarely Pro Bowl
15. Jimmy Garappolo
16. Derek Carr
17. Mac Jones
18. Baker Mayfield
*I need to see more than 1 year to define a player by how they played. Just as Wilson isn’t suddenly worse because his team pooped the bed, Burrow isn’t an AFCCG contender until he shows what he can do next year. He and Herbert are a tossup to me because Chase is an amazing asset, and I gave Herbert the edge because he’s done it now 2 years in a row. Burrow (or Herbert) could be way higher this time next year.
** Lamar is impossible to judge. I think I had him 6th last year, he has the skill to be back up there in an instant…. But this year was extremely pedestrian.
By strict definition of his tiers, isn't Dak a 4? Two Pro Bowls in 6 years?
The same way I wouldn’t say 1 year defines a player, I’d also say something he did 5-6 years ago also doesn’t define who he is today. He was injured recently, in the last 3 healthy years he’s been injured once and had 2 pro bowl caliber years.
