This is an interesting week to try and maneuver around for fantasy owners thanks to bye weeks (Cam Newton), injuries (Ben Roethlisberger) and more difficult situations (Drew Brees).  Throw in some under producing players as well as some favorable matchups, and it comes together for some unexpected rankings.  How exactly do things stack up for the coming week?  Let’s take a look:

  1. Tom Brady – New England Patriots – at Pittsburgh
  2. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – vs. San Diego
  3. Philip Rivers – San Diego Chargers – at Atlanta
  4. Andy Dalton – Cincinnati Bengals – vs. Cleveland
  5. Andrew Luck – Indianapolis Colts – at Tennessee
  6. Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions – vs. Washington
  7. Marcus Mariota – Tennessee Titans – vs. Indianapolis
  8. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – vs. Chicago
  9. Eli Manning – New York Giants – at Los Angeles
  10. Blake Bortles – Jacksonville Jaguars – vs. Oakland
  11. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks – at Arizona
  12. Derek Carr – Oakland Raiders – at Jacksonville
  13. Kirk Cousins – Washington Redskins – at Detroit
  14. Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens – at New York Jets
  15. Jameis Winston – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – at San Francisco
  16. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – at Kansas City
  17. Tyrod Taylor – Buffalo Bills – at Miami
  18. Brian Hoyer – Chicago Bears – at Green Bay
  19. Alex Smith – Kansas City Chiefs – vs. New Orleans
  20. Cody Kessler – Cleveland Browns – at Cincinnati
  21. Case Keenum – Los Angeles Rams – vs. New York Giants
  22. Colin Kaepernick – San Francisco 49ers – vs. Tampa Bay
  23. Carson Palmer – Arizona Cardinals – vs. Seattle
  24. Landry Jones – Pittsburgh Steelers – vs. New England
  25. Ryan Fitzpatrick – New York Jets – vs. Baltimore


  • Over the past two weeks Matt Ryan has taken on two of the tougher defenses in the league, both coming the road as Atlanta travelled to Denver and Seattle.  All he’s done is throw for 602 yards and 4 TD, including 335 yards and 3 TD against the Seahawks last week.  Is there any reason to think that the Chargers are going to be able to slow him down?
  • Speaking of Seattle, after seeing the Falcons put up some big numbers this past week is it unthinkable that Carson Palmer and the Cardinals put up a usable day?  We wouldn’t get too excited, considering they’ve struggled all season, but there’s enough of a reason to consider him a low-end QB2.
  • Drew Brees has 11 TD throws in three home games this season and just 3 on the road (while also throwing a pair of INT).  While that discrepancy is telling, how about averaging 421.3 yards per game at home as compared to 235.0 on the road?  Taking on the Chiefs, in Kansas City, he’s going to be tougher to trust.
  • Eli Manning and the Giants’ passing attack seemed to finally find itself this past week, just in time to take on a Rams defense that allowed Matthew Stafford to throw for 4 TD in Week 6.  There’s a good chance that the team can keep things rolling in the right direction.
  • The matchup would seem to dictate a higher ranking for Joe Flacco (the New York Jets secondary has been among the worst in the league).  That said it’s fair to question his weapons and despite some big yardage days he’s thrown for only 5 TD.  Consider him more of a QB2.
