1. Phillip “PJ” Walker Houston Roughnecks 

PJ has been dominant as a quarterback. He always finds ways to win. NFL teams have there mouth watering looking at this guy.

2. Josh Johnson LA Wildcats 

Johnson has found his receivers consistently and has been awesome.  He has the  Wildcats performing well consistently on offense. 

3. Jordan Ta’amu Saint Louis Battlehawks 

Ta’amu has been really inconsistent but of the remaining quarterbacks he’s had the most success. Ta’amu can run really well but needs to show good consistency in the pass game and then he’s dangerous. 

4. Taylor Cornelius Tampa Bay Vipers 

Cornelius has had 2 good games in a row.  He has made mistakes but has been the best Vipers quarterback so far.  He’s a sneaky as a runner and has gotten the Vipers receivers the ball. Now he’s had some interceptions that are mistakes that he needs to improve on but has had more than 200 pass yards 2 weeks in a row.

5. Luis Perez New York Guardians 

Perez has been decent 2 weeks in a row.  If he can keep his connection with Colby Pearson going the Guardians offense is going to be different in a good way.  The other thing is that Perez doesn’t make alot of mistakes. 

6. BJ Daniels Seattle Dragons 

Of the remaining quarterbacks it is close but Daniels proved he can throw the ball decent in his first week as a starter.  And he can run very well. I think he has the most potential left based on what I saw.

7. Tyree Jackson DC Defenders 

Tyree came in after 1 Cardale Jones drive and was good. Now he needs to pass well had less than 100 pass yards.  But Tyree got the Defenders to be a formidable threat running wise.

8. Phillip Nelson Dallas Renegades 

I don’t know what to say here. Nelson needs to find accuracy and get the ball to Parham and Nagel.  Also Nelson is not a good runner at all which has been a problem for quarterbacks in the XFL you can’t run you gotta find your receivers better plain and simple.
