At the top of the list are two quarterbacks returning from injury in 2017. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, who won the league MVP in 2011 and 2014, is a favorite to win this year’s award. Rodgers missed nine games last season after breaking a collarbone in a game with Minnesota in October. He returned to the lineup on Dec. 17 against Carolina. Rodgers threw three touchdown passes against the Panthers, but Green Bay fell 31-24. Since the Packers could not make the playoffs, Rodgers was placed on injured reserve ending his season.
Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz was on track to win the NFL MVP last year. In 13 games, the former No. 2 overall pick passed for 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns. He was hurt in the Week 14 win over the Rams. He had 291 yards passing and four touchdowns and was hurt attempting to dive for another touchdown in the third quarter. Wentz returns to the defending Super Bowl champions as does virtually the entire offense. Wentz will have plenty of weapons to assist his MVP hopes.
After Rodgers, Brady, and Wentz, a pair of surprise picks could emerge. The Rams’ Jared Goff transformed tremendously from his rookie season to Year 2. After going 0-7 as a rookie, the former No. 1 overall pick went 11-4 last year completing 62.1 percent of his passes for 3,804 yards and 33 touchdowns. There is no doubt he benefited from head coach Sean McVay’s tutelage and if he can continue to improve the sky is the limit. If the Rams can improve upon their wild card playoff loss, Goff could be among the MVP candidates.
The same holds true for Houston’s Deshaun Watson. The Texans quarterback started six games before injuring a knee in practice. Watson had completed 61.8 percent of his passes, thrown 19 touchdowns, and rushed for 269 yards before going down. The Texans went down as well winning just one of their remaining nine games. With a full season under his belt and a potential playoff berth, Watson should be a contender for this year’s MVP.
Since 1986, either a quarterback or running back has won the NFL’s MVP award. If it’s not a quarterback this year, the league MVP could be a battle of running backs such as Dallas’s Ezekiel Elliott, Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell, or even Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt. A wide receiver has never won the award, but Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown has five straight seasons of over 1,000 yards receiving.
