NFL QUARTERBACK POWER RANKINGS: Where All 32 Starters Stand Right Now

Let’s cut to the chase, Nick Foles is insanely high on this week’s list.

Our rating is a composite of three advanced stats: defence-adjusted yards above replacement (DYAR), total QB rating (QBR), and win probability added (WPA). Each stat accounts for one-third of the rating.

It’s not our fault that Nick Foles is so high. Small sample size. Blame maths.

UNRANKED: T.J. Yates, Houston Texans (previously unranked)*

Team record: 2-4

Thing to know: It's his first start of the year.

*Not enough data to create a ranking.

UNRANKED: Thad Lewis, Buffalo Bills (previously unranked)*

Team record: 2-4
