NFL’s Top QBs after Week 9: PFF, DVOA, EPA+CPOE Formula

The following scores are “good” through November 9th, 2022.

This metric merges quarterback grades and scores from Pro Football Focus, FootballOutsiders’ DVOA, EPA+CPOE, and the traditional Passer Rating. The objective is to rank quarterbacks week-by-week with a progressive rolling tally and set of rankings.

The following scores and rankings are weighted and scaled to 100. PFF accounts for 30% of the score, DVOA with 30%, EPA+CPOE at 30%, and Passer Rating 10%. Skill position players and players with menial pass attempts were excluded.

These are the NFL’s top quarterbacks after Week 9.
