1. Tom Brady Fire up Brady here against the Jets. Their defense has played well this season, but they haven’t faced the Pats.
2. Drew Brees The Lions have given up the sixth most passing yards per game and just gave up 300+ yards to Cam Newton.
3. Aaron Rodgers The Vikings have a good defense, but Aaron Rodgers is always a good play, especially with his weapons healthy.
4. Matt Ryan Ryan plays the Fins this week, who have given up a 106.1 QB rating and have yet to pick off a pass this season.
5. Matt Stafford Watch the health of Stafford later in the week, but he plays a Saints defense that is fifth worst against the pass.
6. Kirk Cousins The Niners sit in the bottom quarter of the league in pass defense and Cousins has played well this year.
7. DeShaun Watson Watson is on fire right now with 10 total touchdown in the last two weeks. He draws a poor Browns team this week.
8. Cam Newton The Eagles are playing well, but their defense is giving up 283 passing yards per game. Cam is a great play.
9. Jameis Winston Winston is a great play in a potential shootout. Arizona is one of six teams to have allowed double digit TD passes.
10. Philip Rivers The Raiders are struggling in the secondary, and they have yet to record an interception.
11. Alex Smith The Steelers are the best so far as far as passing yards per game goes, but Alex Smith is on a tear this season.
12. Carson Wentz Wentz played well last week, but he is a fringe QB1 against a Panthers team that allows less than 200 yards per game.
13. Carson Palmer Palmer continues to put in solid fantasy weeks, and he gets the second worst passing defense in Tampa this week.
14. Derek Carr It’s always difficult to gauge how someone plays returning from injury, but Carr has the line and weapons to perform.
15. Marcus Mariota Mariota draws the Colts, who are the third worst passing defense. However, he isn’t a guarantee to play this week.
16. Jacoby Brissett The Titans are in the bottom quarter in passing defense and have given up the most TD passes thus far (12).
17. Ben Roethlisberger Hard to rank him highly after a five interception game. Plus, he visits hostile Arrowhead this week.
18. Trevor Siemian The Giants are a good defense, but Trevor Siemian continues to put in solid fantasy weeks.
19. Josh McCown Don’t play him if you have better options, but playing the Pats defense gives him a nod for a desperation play.
20. Jared Goff The Jaguars have 20 sacks and 10 interceptions so far. That defense will make it difficult for Jared Goff.
21. Case Keenum Keenum gets the Packers defense (199 yards per game), but both Kevin King and Morgan Burnett are questionable.
22. Kevin Hogan A depleted Texans defense will give Hogan more time to throw, but he’s still not much of an option this week.
23. Eli Manning The Broncos defense averages 210 passing yards given up per game. This will be ugly for Eli with a poor offensive line.
24. Brian Hoyer The Redskins have holes in their defense, but they are still a top half team against the pass.
25. Joe Flacco Flacco barely makes the list due to a poor Bears secondary. However, they still only allow 205 yards per game.
