RANKED: The Top 50 Players in Today’s NFL

50. Ben Roethlisberger


Big Ben remains one of the best quarterbacks in football. Although Roethlisberger is prone to a few poor games a year, the Pittsburgh legend is still a top-10 QB. Having a receiver like Antonio Brown on his side will only prolong Roethlisberger’s career. Big Ben is a winner — evidenced by leading the Steelers to double-digit wins in each season since 2014.

49. Anthony Barr


A main cog in Minnesota’s elite defense, Barr is one of the best outside linebackers in football. The three-time Pro Bowler may have become the Packers No. 1 enemy for breaking Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone, but Minnesota fans adore the punishing defender. Barr will remain a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

48. Cam Newton


A former MVP, Newton often gets criticized for his accuracy in the passing game. While ‘Superman’ has certainly had his struggles through the air, there is no denying he is one of the best players in the game. Newton is arguably one of the hardest players to defend against. Not only can he beat you with his arm, but Newton is especially effective when worked into the rushing attack. Newton has the most rushing TDs by a quarterback in NFL history, and leads all QBs in rushing since 2011.
