I'd have to go with Djokovic, based on current form, but Rogie could turn it on in October and November, who knows, the one I expect to the worst is Rafa for 2 reasons, 1.) injured and 2.) even when he comes back, it's the part of the year where he does his worst....

I'm going with Fed here and not because of wishful thinking and/or fan bias.
He hasn't overplayed this season, no injury. Should play without pressure. He won a slam, season is already a success. Shanghai/Basel/WTF are tournaments where he plays great tennis. Djokovic too, but this guy can't sweep through the asian swing as he used to. I mean he lost in Toronto to Tsitsipas. I think that Federer will do best from Shanghai to WTF. He might not win them all but 1 or 2 and win more points than the other two. Then again, he clearly dropped this year and I'm not expecting anything from him but just play and have fun! :)

I think Nadal and Federer are more motivated than Djokovic, because Djokovic recently won 2 slams.
Federer is probably the most motivated of all, especially if this is his 2nd last year.
I don’t question the motivation, I just think Djokovic is healthy and the best player right now. I think Djokovic will also be plenty motivated to get back to #1 after being written off by so many, but his brain sometimes works in strange ways.
