Whether you started your league off on the right foot or you're struggling to put up points, you've come to the right place.

I thought I'd grace you with some quarterback rankings this week, especially for those facing the dilemma of whether to start Drew Brees or Brandon Weeden (joking, of course).


Start 'Em

Robert Griffin III 

I don't know if it's the socks or the skill, but RGIII is the highest-rated fantasy player through Week 2 of the fantasy football season.

With designed runs at his disposal, RGIII is a double threat and is going up against a Cincinnati defense that has allowed 44 points to the Ravens and 27 to the Browns. 

Keep an eye on Pierre Garcon's status, but either way, expect a big day for No. 10 in Washington this Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers 

Has anyone ever really considered sitting Aaron Rodgers? Rodgers gets a staunch Seattle pass defense on Monday night, but this is the 2011 MVP we're talking about. 

After being somewhat held down by the Chicago defense in Week 2, I'm expecting a big day for Rodgers this Monday.

Tony Romo 

Romo struggled against a solid Seahawks defense in Week 2, but let's not forget what he did against the Giants in Week 1.

Granted, he was facing an injury-riddled secondary in New York, but in Week 3 he gets a Tampa Bay defense that surrendered 510 yards and three touchdowns to Eli Manning last Sunday.

Drew Brees 

Yes, the Saints are struggling, but Drew Brees is not a man to bet against.

Brees will see a Kansas City defense that has been extremely susceptible to the pass during the first two weeks of the season, and the Saints are poised for a big day in the Superdome after beginning the season 0-2.


Sit 'Em

Matt Schaub 

You have a run-heavy team going up against the No. 9 ranked pass defense (Denver) in the NFL. Any questions?

Peyton Manning 

We all saw the way Manning played on Monday Night Football, but he's also facing the NFL's best pass defense in the Houston Texans.

Start looking for a backup.

Sam Bradford 

Bradford and the Rams travel to Chicago, who held 2011 MVP Aaron Rodgers to just 219 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT.

Bradford has been effective, sporting a career-high 71.7 completion percentage and throwing four TDs to just one interception.

Bradford is good, but if the Bears can contain Rodgers, there's no doubt they can keep Bradford from having a big day.

Mark Sanchez 

Mark Sanchez fooled everyone after an outstanding Week 1 performance against Buffalo.

But he's not fooling me.

Despite posting four touchdowns and just one pick, Sanchez is barely completing 50 percent of his passes and will face pressure from the Dolphins' front four.

Sit Mark Sanchez or lose your week.
