6. DeShaun Watson
It will be interesting to see how Watson’s statistics change with the loss of DeAndre Hopkins. The Houston Texans star has been one of the best quarterbacks in the league over the past couple of seasons. He isn’t quite yet in the class of those above him in these rankings, but he’s still a very fine player.
Watson has a tendency to hold onto the ball too long. However, he is already the only player in NFL history with 25 touchdowns passes and five touchdown runs in back-to-back seasons. The big question is whether or not he can take the next step. Many think he’s the best quarterback in Texans’ history.
