NFL Quarterback Tiers for 2023

There is no better time to start looking ahead to the 2023-2024 NFL season. In anticipation, we are releasing tier rankings for the offensive skill positions. To start, we will be focusing on the quarterback position. Below you will find our starting NFL quarterback tiers for the upcoming season. Before you look at our rankings, let’s point out some key highlights.

The Big Three

The ‘S’ tier is for the elite and that’s exactly what these three quarterbacks are. There isn’t much room to debate that Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow and Josh Allen are on another level. One could make an argument that Justin Herbert is sneaking into that conversation but he is not there yet.

Crowded B Tier

In all 13 quarterbacks made it into our ‘B’ tier. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett just made it into this tier as the last quarterback selected. Pickett had a strong finish to his rookie season winning his last 3 starts. Expect him to get better in the Steelers offense as the year goes on.

One quarterback to watch in this list is Justin Fields. Fields carried the Chicago Bears offense for much of the 2022-2023 season. The key now will be if Fields can become a more complete quarterback. He will have a better receiving core with the addition of D.J. Moore and the offensive line is improved.

Started From the Bottom

As expected many of the rookie quarterbacks are in the ‘C’ and ‘D’ tiers. Anthony Richardson is still raw and will take some time to adjust to the NFL. Once he does, look out. He could quickly climb up these rankings as he is a dynamic playmaker. Fellow rookies C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young make it into the ‘C’ tier. At this point in time, they are more polished than Richardson and should be slated to start in week 1.

Colt McCoy made it into our tier list over Kyler Murray due to Murray’s injury. We already know Murray will miss the start of the 2023-2024 season with his ACL injury but it could be more than that. ACL injuries are tricky to navigate and it’s possible we won’t see Murray until the 2nd half of the season.
