Quarterbacks

    1. 1
    2. Peyton Manning
    3. Peyton
      Manning
      QB
    4. PASS YDS409
    5. PASS TD4
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    The Broncos play Dallas next week, but get Jacksonville, Indy and Washington the following three weeks. Manning could have 2,500 yards and 25 TDs heading into their Week 9 bye.

    1. 2
    2. Andrew Luck
    3. Andrew
      Luck
      QB
    4. PASS YDS356
    5. PASS TD3
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS29
    8. RUSH TD0

    Luck's numbers weren't all that impressive against the Niners last week, but he continued to make plays on the ground. He'll make it up to his owners this week.

    1. 3
    2. Terrelle Pryor
    3. Terrelle
      Pryor
      QB
    4. PASS YDS280
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS44
    8. RUSH TD1

    Pryor had a productive fantasy day against Denver, but left after suffering a concussion late. Keep an eye on his practice schedule this week.

    1. 4
    2. Ben Roethlisberger
    3. Ben
      Roethlisberger
      QB
    4. PASS YDS331
    5. PASS TD3
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Roethlisberger ended up with a huge game against the Bears, throwing for 406 yards and two TDs. I think he's worth starting against a Vikings team that struggled with Brian Hoyer last week.

    1. 5
    2. Michael Vick
    3. Michael
      Vick
      QB
    4. PASS YDS321
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS43
    8. RUSH TD0

    The Chiefs completely shut Vick down last week, and he'll have 10 days to think about it by time Sunday rolls around. I think the Broncos win handily, but Vick gives his owners a nice game.

    1. 6
    2. Matt Ryan
    3. Matt
      Ryan
      QB
    4. PASS YDS326
    5. PASS TD3
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    The Dolphins limited Ryan to 231 yards and 6.1 YPA, though he did throw two touchdown passes. He'll find things a bit easier against the Patriots.

    1. 7
    2. Tony Romo
    3. Tony
      Romo
      QB
    4. PASS YDS345
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Situation dictated that Romo only throw 24 times last week, but he put up 210 yards and three scores. He'll have another great day this Sunday against a friendly San Diego defense.

    1. 8
    2. Matthew Stafford
    3. Matthew
      Stafford
      QB
    4. PASS YDS340
    5. PASS TD3
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Stafford predictably had a huge game against Washington. Teams have been able to throw on the Bears this year, so Stafford owners should expect a nice game.

    1. 9
    2. Robert Griffin III
    3. Robert
      Griffin III
      QB
    4. PASS YDS317
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS22
    8. RUSH TD0

    It took Griffin 50 attempts to get to 326 yards, and he didn't factor into the scoring at all. It has already been a nightmare season in the capital.

    1. 10
    2. Jay Cutler
    3. Jay
      Cutler
      QB
    4. PASS YDS328
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS17
    8. RUSH TD0

    Cutler really struggled for the first time this season, but I'm betting he finds the Detroit defense a whole lot more amenable than he did the Steelers last week.

    1. 11
    2. Drew Brees
    3. Drew
      Brees
      QB
    4. PASS YDS305
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    The Dolphins present Brees with his toughest challenge this season, but I think he'll be plenty up to it in this matchup of somewhat surprising 3-0 teams.

    1. 12
    2. Russell Wilson
    3. Russell
      Wilson
      QB
    4. PASS YDS304
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS40
    8. RUSH TD0

    The only problem with Wilson's performance against the Jaguars was he forced himself to the bench after building a huge lead. He'll play the whole game this week, with solid results.

    1. 13
    2. Tom Brady
    3. Tom
      Brady
      QB
    4. PASS YDS249
    5. PASS TD3
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Brady was able to give his owners a productive day, but it's still not going to be the guy were used to until Rob Gronkowksi and Danny Amendola return. He has just 5.5 YPA this year.

    1. 14
    2. Carson Palmer
    3. Carson
      Palmer
      QB
    4. PASS YDS319
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Palmer had a terrible day against a surprisingly good Saints defense. He'll get back above 300 yards this week.

    1. 15
    2. Alex Smith
    3. Alex
      Smith
      QB
    4. PASS YDS246
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Smith played the role of game manager to perfection last week. He'll do a bit more as a playmaker against the Giants.

    1. 16
    2. Andy Dalton
    3. Andy
      Dalton
      QB
    4. PASS YDS296
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Dalton was gifted a couple short fields thanks to takeaways and made them count, racking up 235 yards (8.4 YPA) and two scores. Cleveland will test him.

    1. 17
    2. Colin Kaepernick
    3. Colin
      Kaepernick
      QB
    4. PASS YDS254
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS53
    8. RUSH TD0

    After Kaepernick's terrible game against an inviting opponent, I'm starting to get a little worried about him. I think he'll bounce back a bit this week.

    1. 18
    2. EJ Manuel
    3. EJ
      Manuel
      QB
    4. PASS YDS268
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS37
    8. RUSH TD0

    Manuel struggled against a strong Jets defense last week. It doesn't get any easier for him this week with the Ravens coming to town.

    1. 19
    2. Sam Bradford
    3. Sam
      Bradford
      QB
    4. PASS YDS273
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS14
    8. RUSH TD0

    Bradford had a terrible showing last week, getting just 5.0 yards per attempt against the Cowboys. He'll underwhelm again this week.

    1. 20
    2. Ryan Tannehill
    3. Ryan
      Tannehill
      QB
    4. PASS YDS275
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS17
    8. RUSH TD0

    Tannehill struggled at times against the Falcons, but he tossed the game-winning TD with 38 seconds left in the game. He's maturing right before our eyes.

    1. 21
    2. Eli Manning
    3. Eli
      Manning
      QB
    4. PASS YDS263
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    It doesn't get any easier for Manning this week, going up against the top-performing defense in the league thus far, according to Pro Football Focus.

    1. 22
    2. Jake Locker
    3. Jake
      Locker
      QB
    4. PASS YDS262
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS20
    8. RUSH TD0

    Locker had a great day, leading the Titans to a comeback victory while throwing for 299 yards, 8.1 YPA and a TD. He added 68 yards and a score on the ground.

    1. 23
    2. Joe Flacco
    3. Joe
      Flacco
      QB
    4. PASS YDS256
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT0
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    The lack of weapons in Baltimore is really starting to show in Flacco's stats. I can't recommend him as a fantasy starter, and he's just a fringe option in two-QB leagues.

    1. 24
    2. Philip Rivers
    3. Philip
      Rivers
      QB
    4. PASS YDS284
    5. PASS TD2
    6. INT3
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Rivers came back to earth against the Titans, throwing for 184 yards and a TD. I do not recommend starting him against what appears to be a very good Dallas defense.

    1. 25
    2. Matt Schaub
    3. Matt
      Schaub
      QB
    4. PASS YDS252
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS3
    8. RUSH TD0

    Schaub really struggled last week, though that could have had something to do with a less-than-100-percent Andre Johnson. He still shouldn't be counted on this week.

    1. 26
    2. Blaine Gabbert
    3. Blaine
      Gabbert
      QB
    4. PASS YDS237
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    After two underwhelming games from Chad Henne, Gabbert will get back under center. The results won't change.

    1. 27
    2. Geno Smith
    3. Geno
      Smith
      QB
    4. PASS YDS220
    5. PASS TD0
    6. INT1
    7. RUSH YDS15
    8. RUSH TD0

    Smith had his best day as a pro last week, throwing for 331 yards and two scores, while adding a TD on the ground. It'll be a bit tougher in Nashville this week.

    1. 28
    2. Matt Cassel
    3. Matt
      Cassel
      QB
    4. PASS YDS254
    5. PASS TD0
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS16
    8. RUSH TD0

    Cassel steps in this week for the injured Christian Ponder. In Cassel's last start, Nov. 18 last season against Cincinnati, he completely only 50 percent of his passes. It'll be tough sledding against the Steelers.

    1. 29
    2. Brian Hoyer
    3. Brian
      Hoyer
      QB
    4. PASS YDS172
    5. PASS TD1
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    After being made the butt of many jokes during the week, Hoyer threw for 311 yards and three touchdowns in the Browns' first win of the season. He still shouldn't be anywhere near your roster,

    1. 30
    2. Mike Glennon
    3. Mike
      Glennon
      QB
    4. PASS YDS213
    5. PASS TD0
    6. INT2
    7. RUSH YDS0
    8. RUSH TD0

    Mike Glennon gets his first career start, taking over for the embattled Josh Freeman. Will Greg Schiano last the whole year?
