(Before It's News)

At least there are only four teams on bye this week, though you could argue that the four quarterbacks missing could all be QB1 (Andrew Luck and Derek Carr would almost be guarantees, Matthew Stafford is matchup dependent and Tyrod Taylor has that upside, though he’d be a bit more of a long shot).  Luckily there are players who are finally starting to produce as expected, helping to fill out the top of our rankings.  How do things shake out?  Let’s take a look:

  1. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – at Tennessee
  2. Tom Brady – New England Patriots – vs. Seattle
  3. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – at Philadelphia
  4. Philip Rivers – San Diego Chargers – vs. Miami
  5. Carson Palmer – Arizona Cardinals – vs. San Francisco
  6. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – vs. Denver
  7. Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers – vs. Kansas City
  8. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh Steelers – vs. Dallas
  9. Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys – at Pittsburgh
  10. Eli Manning – New York Giants – vs. Cincinnati
  11. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks – at New England
  12. Andy Dalton – Cincinnati Bengals – at New York Giants
  13. Marcus Mariota – Tennessee Titans – vs. Green Bay
  14. Jay Cutler – Chicago Bears – at Tampa Bay
  15. Joe Flacco – Baltimore Ravens – vs. Cleveland
  16. Jameis Winston – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs. Chicago
  17. Trevor Siemian – Denver Broncos – at New Orleans
  18. Alex Smith – Kansas City Chiefs – at Carolina
  19. Carson Wentz – Philadelphia Eagles – vs. Atlanta
  20. Blake Bortles – Jacksonville Jaguars – vs. Houston
  21. Kirk Cousins – Washington Redskins – vs. Minnesota
  22. Ryan Tannehill – Miami Dolphins – at San Diego
  23. Colin Kaepernick – San Francisco 49ers – at Arizona
  24. Cody Kessler – Cleveland Browns – at Baltimore
  25. Ryan Fitzpatrick – New York Jets – vs. St. Louis

Thoughts:

  • Aaron Rodgers certainly appears to be “back”, as he has at least 294 yards in three of his past four games and 3+ TD in each of his past three (10 TD vs. 1 INT).  He’s also been adding value with his legs, with 12 carries for 103 yards over the past two weeks.  While it’s easy to be down on him in general, that would be a mistake.  He’s one of the best in the league and has been putting his skills on display of late.
  • No matter what seems to happen to the Chargers’ receiving corps, Philip Rivers just keeps on producing.  He put up 275 yards and 2 TD on Sunday and now draws a Miami defense that is in the bottom half of the league against opposing QB.  With some questionable opportunities, it’s easy to slide Rivers in as one of the better plays this week.
  • Carson Palmer has shown signs of turning things around, with over 340 yards in each of his past two starts and 3 TD in his game prior to the Cardinals’ bye weeks.  Taking on the 49ers, who have allowed 18 passing TD on the season, there’s a good chance that he keeps the good times rolling.
  • Sure Eli Manning has had his ups and downs this season, but he now has 3+ TD in two of his past three games, a running game that’s stuck in reverse and an opposing defense that has allowed 16 TD to opposing QB.  With one of the most dynamic players in the NFL at his disposal, there’s always the chance for a monster day.
  • It wasn’t necessarily a great game for Carson Wentz, who had the yardage (364) but had 2 INT and failed to throw a TD.  He now has 2 TD over his past four games, so while the matchup appears to be promising don’t get too excited.
  • Alex Smith is reportedly going to be ready to go, but whoever is under center for the Chiefs is going to be ranked the same.  It’s a plus matchup and both Smith and Foles have a similar upside.
  • Joe Flacco has thrown for more than 1 TD in a game just once all season…  That came against the Browns back in Week 2, who he once again gets to face this week.  Anyone against Cleveland is going to be a promising play, but with Flacco’s struggles to find the end zone we wouldn’t get too excited.  He’s more of a QB2 as opposed to anything.
