Last week we saw the top quarterbacks on the list continue to make plays. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady both earned big points for fantasy teams when it mattered most. They will continue to be the top 2 quarterbacks on my list as long as they are healthy and not on bye.
Our biggest mover this week is Brian Hoyer who was throwing darts all over an above average Los Angeles Rams defense last Thursday night. His rise and Mike Glennon’s drop are more a result of the Chicago Bears running back dependence than anything else.
The other biggest mover on the list this week is Kirk Cousins. He and Derek Carr have swapped places. The Sunday night game between their respective teams was very telling and at times I was wondering if I was watching David Carr play for the silver & black. Cousins looks like he may have found some rhythm with his new receivers finally and can only improve if he gets a healthy Jordan Reed.
