  2. Drew Brees (NO @ AZ)
  3. Aaron Rodgers (GB @ WAS)
  4. Phillip Rivers (SD VS OAK)
  5. Tony Romo (DAL vs. TEN)
  6. Matt Ryan (ATL @ CLE)
  7. Shaun Hill (DET vs. STL) – Hill is averaging 300 ypg in his 3 starts making him an above average option this week.
  8. Joe Flacco (BAL vs. DEN)
  9. Matt Schaub (HOU vs. NYG)

10.  Eli Manning (NYG @ HOU) – Texans are 31st against the pass look for Eli to bounce back after last week.

11.  Donavan McNabb (WAS vs. GB) – The Pack allowed 331 yards passing to Detroit last week and there without LB Nick Barnett and S Morgan Burnett.

12.  Kyle Orton (DEN vs. BAL)-#1 pass offense vs. #1 pass defense, should see whose for real after this one.

13.  Mark Sanchez (NYJ vs. MIN)-645 yards 8 TD to 0 interceptions last three games, and oh yea, gets Santonio Holmes as a new toy.

14.  Ryan Fitzpatrick (BUF vs. JAC)-The Jaguars are 29th against the pass and Fitzpatrick can throw the ball, he’s a very good bye week filler and can run a little bit as well.

15.  Sam Bradford (STL @ DET) – Detroit has a suspect pass defense and Bradford is looking better and better every week.

16.  David Garrard (JAC @ BUF)

17.  Carson Palmer (CIN vs. TB)

18.  Alex Smith (SF vs. PHI) – Plays better at home, coming off tough loss to Falcons, should have a decent day.

19.  Brett Favre (MIN @NYJ)-Has a new weapon in Randy Moss and something to prove to his old team and the rest of the league.

20.  Matt Cassel (KC @ IND)

21.  Vince Young (TEN @ DAL)-Should get something going with his legs, and his arm as I think Dallas keeps Chris Johnson tamed.

22.  Kevin Kolb (PHI @ SF)

23.  Bruce Gradkowski (OAK @ SD) – Has been pretty solid so far but not a very good matchup against the Chargers plus as a slight shoulder ailment.

24.  Josh Freeman (TB @ CIN)

25.  Max Hall (AZ vs. NO)-The Saints haven’t forced many turnovers and Hall could have a decent first start with a week of practice under his belt in a game where he will have to air it out often.

26.  Jimmy Clausen (CAR vs. CHI)

27.  Todd Collins (CHI @ CAR)-Replaces concussed Cutler, will be in for a long day

  3. Calvin Johnson (DET vs. STL)
  4. Miles Austin (DAL vs. TEN)-Won’t have another disappointing game like week 3, he’ll go off.

  6. Hakeem Nicks (NYG @ HOU)
  7. Terrell Owens (CIN vs. TB)- He won’t post another 200 yard game but is Palmer’s go to guy and should hit the 100 yard mark with a score.
  8. Mark Clayton (STL @ DET)-Bradford’s go to guy, averaging 8 targets and double digit points every game.
  9. Santana Moss (WAS vs. GB)-Won’t be invisible again this week, back to his 7-8 catch days Sunday.

10.  Anquan Boldin(BAL vs. DEN)-Champ Bailey not allowing more than 4 catches for 65 yards yet, until this week.

11.  Austin Collie (IND vs. KC)-Assuming he plays, he’ll have another huge game, that foot injury isn’t looking real positive though right now.

12.  Larry Fitzgerald (AZ vs. NO)-It remains to be seen how Max Hall gets the ball too him, but he’ll find the ball a few times with one of them being a TD.

14.  DeSean Jackson(PHI @ SF)

15.  Steve Smith (NYG @ HOU)

17.  Marques Colston (NO @ AZ)

18.  Malcom Floyd (SD vs. OAK)

21.  Chad OchoCinco (CIN vs TB)

22.  Santonio Holmes (NYJ vs. MIN)-First game off of suspension, will make some noise first game back.

23.  Kevin Walter (HOU vs. NYG)-Jacoby Jones is doubtful and AJ still a game time decision, could have a huge day, bump him up about 5 spots if AJ sits too.

24.  Mike Thomas (JAC @ BUF) – Garrard’s go to guy, great for PPR leagues. Averaging 7 targets per game and great matchup vs. Buffalo.

25.  Percy Harvin (MIN @ NYJ)-Moss addition will help Harvin tremendously.

26.  Derrick Mason (BAL vs. DEN) – #2 WR’s averaging 7 rec. for 84 yards against the Broncos.

28.  Brandon Lloyd (DEN @ BAL)-This guy just keeps surprising, has 454 yards receiving through 4 games.

37.  Danny Amendola (STL @ DET)

41.  Braylon Edwards (NYJ vs. MIN)

42.  Roy Williams (DAL vs. TEN)

44.  Harry Douglas (ATL @ CLE)

45.  Jabar Gaffney (DEN @ BAL)

48.  Lee Evans (BUF vs. JAC)

49.  Mike Sims-Walker (JAC @ BUF)-He won’t be shut out again, but won’t have a huge game either.
