Rank Quarterback Team Opponent High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB1s
1 Patrick Mahomes KC ARI Do you need an explanation?
2 Cam Newton CAR at PIT Cam's on fire and it's a great matchup.
3 Aaron Rodgers GB MIA He's fully healthy and his trust in MVS is paying off big time.
4 Philip Rivers LAC at OAK This is going to be a blood bath.
5 Drew Brees NO at CIN Breesy got back on track last week and he'll look to do it again against a weak Cincy pass D.
6 Jared Goff LAR SEA In McVay We Trust.
7 Matt Ryan ATL at CLE Ryan was dishing last week and should get it done again this week. Look for his stats to be padded by passing to the RBs against Cleveland's inept RB defense.
8 Ben Roethlisberger PIT CAR Carolina's receiver coverage has been suspect at times and this week they've gotta stop AB and JuJu.
9 Andrew Luck IND JAX Luck's playing out of his mind and Jacksonville's been lit up by Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz in 2 of their last 3 games.
10 Ryan Fitzpatrick TB WAS It's a safe bet he'll turn the ball over but it's just as likely he throws for 300+ yards and multiple touchdowns. Todd Monken's The Man.
11 Tom Brady NE at TEN Likely Brady's lowest ranking of the year. He'll look to eviscerate Malcolm Butler.
12 Carson Wentz PHI DAL Wentz has played very well in recent weeks. Look for him to produce, even in a tough matchup.
High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s
13 Andy Dalton CIN NO Even without A.J. Green, The Red Rifle will produce against the Saints at home.
14 Baker Mayfield CLE ATL Baker will soar to new heights by the grace of Duke Johnson Jr. and the Messiah Freddie Kitchens.
15 Dak Prescott DAL at PHI Dak's been getting it done as of late. In Week 10 he gets Philly's pass-funnel defense.
16 Russell Wilson SEA at LAR RW's put up points against legit defenses over the last two weeks. Look for him to work over the Rams porous secondary as the Seahawks play catchup.
Lower-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s
17 Mitchell Trubisky CHI DET It's anyone's guess as to whether Trubisky finishes the week in the Top 5 or the Bottom 5.
18 Alex Smith WAS at TB As crazy as it sounds, Smith isn't a bad play this week. Tampa Bay makes everyone look good.
19 Josh Rosen ARI at KC Look for Rosen to frequently hit DJ in the flats to neutralize the KC pass rush. DJ will break one or two long ones in the process.
20 Blake Bortles JAX at IND Mitchell Trubisky's Fantasy Football Mentor.
21 Marcus Mariota TEN NE Mobile quarterbacks have had success on the ground against New England.
22 Eli Manning NYG at SF HC Pat Shurmur was non-committal on Eli retaining his starting job after this week. Look for Eli to spam Beckham with targets in an attempt to save his career. It's a good matchup for it.
23 Matthew Stafford DET CHI It's a tough matchup but Stafford's still a good quarterback with good weapons at his disposal.
24 Nick Mullens SF NYG Nick Mullens looked great against a poorly-coached Oakland team last week. Luckily he gets a similar situation at home against the paltry Giants.
Low-Floor/Low-Ceiling QB2
25 Derek Carr OAK LAC This is a bad matchup for the moronically-coached Carr.
QB3s
26 Sam Darnold NYJ BUF Look for Darnold to lock onto Elijah McGuire through the air.
27 Brock Osweiler MIA at GB Avoid at all costs.
28 Matt Barkley BUF at NYJ Did the Bills manage to get worse at quarterback by benching Nathan Peterman?
