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?

   
 

Rank

Player Name         Opponent  Notes  
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.
