The top 10 is rounded out with Jimmy Garoppolo at +1200, Tom Brady at +1200, Lamar Jackson at +1800, Carson Wentz at +2000 and Dak Prescott at +2800.
The surge made by Russell Wilson to become the favorite for the NFL’s most coveted individual award is nothing short of impressive. Prior to Seattle’s victory in Week 6 the quarterback was +275 to win the NFL MVP.
Wilson is No. 1 in the NFL for passer rating, game-winning drives and total touchdowns and is No. 2 in completion percentage. Wilson has not thrown an interception through six weeks of the season, which is one of the reasons why Seattle is off to a 5-1 start.
Aaron Rodgers made the biggest move up the futures board this past week. Last week prior to Green Bay’s 23-22 last second win over Detroit, Rodgers sat at +1200 on the board, but with his poise, 283 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns all without his top receiver Devante Adams, Rodgers jumped up to +900.
Rodgers’s number are expected to increase as Adams is close to returning from a toe injury, but it will not be easy for the Green Bay quarterback to catch the likes of Wilson, Mahomes or Houston quarterback Watson.
