When trying to determine which quarterback is going to have the most passing yards in the 2019 NFL season, there are so many variables to consider that it can make your head spin. Rather than narrow down to a single selection, let’s consider which 10 quarterbacks deserve most consideration for this prop wager.
Patrick Mahomes +400
Mahomes came in second last year in passing yardage and was also second in yards per attempt. He presumably will only get better, as he is still in the early stages of his career, and just like the MVP odds, he is probably a deserving favorite.
Matt Ryan +450
Ryan came in third last year and has been no worse than sixth, dating all the way back to the 2011 season. It doesn’t hurt that he has Julio Jones and plays in the NFC South, where he is guaranteed at least nine dome games a year and another two in warm-weather climates.
Andrew Luck +500
Another dome contender, Luck spent 2018 behind arguably the best pass-blocking offensive line in the league. A great offensive line remedies plenty of quarterback woes, and Luck has a cannon ready to fire away from behind that line.
Ben Roethlisberger +600
Last year’s passing yards leader finished on top for one simple reason: he threw the ball a lot.
Aaron Rodgers +800
The most naturally talented quarterback in the NFL, Rodgers makes throws nobody else can make.
Baker Mayfield +1000
It’s showtime in Cleveland, with Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry combining to give Mayfield as talented a receiving duo as any quarterback in the league.
Jameis Winston +1200
Last year’s leader in yards per attempt was Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and by quite a large margin. That indicates the Bucs have the ability to go deep and create explosive plays. Winston has always been able to move the ball down the field, and a new coach might let him really air it out.
Jared Goff +1200
With Todd Gurley banged up to start the year, Goff might be relied upon even more to air it out.
Drew Brees +1600
This is only the guy who plays in a dome, leads a notoriously explosive offense and has had the most passing yards in three of the last five years!
Joe Flacco +10000
A longshot, but Flacco is almost guaranteed the opportunity to air it out more than he ever has, and we’ve always known he has the arm strength to let it fly.
