Kyle Orton makes the Top 5 in the Week 6 QB rankings
Week 6 presents some interesting matchups, along with some interesting rankings (Mr. Rodgers, I'm looking at you). So let's get to it, shall we?
|1.||Peyton Manning||@ WAS||Redskins giving up 17 fantasy points to QBs on average.|
|2.||Philip Rivers||@ STL||Should get his points early and often.|
|3.||Tony Romo||@ MIN||DAL defense is bad, plenty of chances for Romo to throw.|
|4.||Drew Brees||@ TB||Brees must get offense back on track v. weakened secondary.|
|5.||Kyle Orton||v. NYJ||Jets surprisingly giving up 14 fantasy points to QBs.|
|6.||Tom Brady||v. BAL||Brady will throw early and often in new offense.|
|7.||Eli Manning||v. DET||Probably won't throw too much if running game gets going.|
|8.||Aaron Rodgers||v. MIA||If Rodgers isn't fuzzy, should find the end zone at least twice.|
|9.||Ben Roethlisberger||v. CLE||Should find success, but likely won't be called upon often.|
|10.||Jay Cutler||v. SEA||Seahawks giving up big numbers to QBs.|
|11.||Matt Schaub||v. KC||Chiefs giving up yards in passing game, plus AJ is back.|
|12.||Joe Flacco||@ NEP||Inconsistent, but Patriots secondary is inexperienced.|
|13.||Donovan McNabb||v. IND||Likely trailing, so plenty of chances to chuck the rock.|
|14.||Brett Favre||v. DAL||Plays much better in domes, but elbow an issue.|
|15.||Matt Cassel||@ HOU||Chiefs will have to get it done through the air.|
|16.||Matt Ryan||@ PHI||Ryan still not playing great on the road.|
|17.||Vince Young||@ JAX||Jaguars giving up 21 fantasy points to QBs, most in NFL.|
|18.||Kevin Kolb||v. ATL||Falcons defense only giving up eight fantasy points per game to QBs.|
|19.||Mark Sanchez||@ DEN||Showing signs of regression, and run game is spectacular.|
|20.||Josh Freeman||v. NOS||Passing game is clicking and productive.|
