That is this year's wisdom from the hazy legion of NFL players casting ballots for NFL Network's The Top 100 Players Of 2016 countdown.
Bortles made his Top 100 debut this week, appearing at No. 56. Luck had plummeted 85 spots from No. 7 last year to No. 92 in early May.
Filled with promise as a strapping, strong-armed passer with plus athleticism, Bortles enjoyed an impressive breakout season featuring 37 touchdowns. On the flip side, he led the league with 18 interceptions and made too many careless mistakes that contributed to the Jaguars' 11 losses.
Should Bortles be ranked higher than Luck, who has authored a series of definitive, come-from-behind victories and led a flawed team to the AFC Championship Game?
Of course not.
Luck's preposterously low ranking is merely the latest example of voters struggling to rank an injured star, just as they did in leaving Julio Jones off the list entirely two years ago. Bortles' surprisingly high ranking is likely the result of Jacksonville players turning out in droves to support their offensive leader.
Elsewhere in the Top 100:
» Luck wasn't the only star docked for injuries. Dez Bryant dropped from No. 15 to No. 51 after a foot fracture sabotaged his 2015 season. Bryant led all NFL players with 41 receiving touchdowns from 2012 through 2014.
