With the young quarterback having an amazing 2022 season, it’s sparking this conversation of him being the best.
However, is Mahomes the best player in the NFL this season, or is it someone else?
The Numbers Bode Well For Mahomes Being The Best This Season
When fans see the numbers Mahomes has put up this season, it makes a compelling case for him to be the best player in the NFL.
While some thought he might suffer without Tyreek Hill, he’s finding plenty of players to make touchdown connections with this season.

With Mahomes already having 3,265 passing yards, 28 passing touchdowns, and a 107.3 passer rating, he’s clearly having a career year.
However, some of these numbers only top the NFL this season because of one player suffering an injury.
This injury kept another quarterback on the sidelines who could challenge Mahomes.
So who is this other player that’s better than Mahomes this season?
Tua Tagovailoa Is Better That Mahomes This Season
With Tua Tagovailoa missing several games because of a concussion, it hurt his touchdown and passing yards numbers.
However, the young quarterback is number one in many other important stats, despite missing those games.
I want it to be Tua, but missing three games is going to hurt him. I think Mahomes will finish number one, Tua will finish number two. pic.twitter.com/OPGj5pM8Mx

He beats his counterpart in Kansas City in five different passing categories, which makes him the best player in the NFL.
While the Super Bowl champion quarterback is doing great, Tagovailoa is just better than him.
Had he not missed several games, there’s a chance he’d be number one in every passing category for 2022.
