Tom Brady: New England Patriots (vs. Buffalo Bills)
This almost goes without saying, but start Brady this week. Next week. Every week until the end of eternity.
Through two weeks of play, Brady is leading the league in passing yards (940), is tied for most passing touchdowns (seven) and leads all players in fantasy points scored (62).
He has made both defenses he has faced look silly, especially Miami's in Week 1 where Brady threw for an incredible 517 yards.
If his stats don't already look ridiculous, listen to this: Cam Newton is currently No. 2 in the league in passing, and he's 86 yards behind Brady. Who's No. 3? Philip Rivers with 713 passing yards, 227 yards behind Brady.
He is certainly making his case felt for "Best QB of All Time" with his play thus far.
Philip Rivers: San Diego Chargers (vs. Kansas City Chiefs)
Rivers has looked good so far this season. Like I said, he's No. 3 in passing yards with 713, but this week, he will have an opportunity to gain ground on Brady and possibly pass Newton for the No. 2 spot.
His opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs, just aren't very good defensively, and losing starting safety Eric Berry didn't exactly help them at all. It did, however, help all Chiefs opposing quarterbacks in terms of fantasy numbers.
Rivers should be poised to have a big game this weekend. In fact, he may even top Brady for highest-scoring player of the week.
Start him no matter what.
Michael Vick: Philadelphia Eagles (vs. New York Giants)
Michael Vick has been officially cleared to play, and that should make the Eagles feel a little bit better about this weekend's matchup against their conference foe New York Giants.
The Eagles, who are coming off an upsetting Week 2 loss in Atlanta, will be looking for a win to get back to the top of the conference, currently occupied by the undefeated Washington Redskins.
The Giants, who are No. 24 out of 32 teams in terms of passing defense, have already made Rex Grossman and Sam Bradford look good this season. Vick is more talented than both of these guys and also has a plethora of weapons at his disposal.
Vick should stay in the pocket more this week, in order to stay away from more severe injuries, but that doesn't mean that he will. Vick will likely play his normal style of football, and he's going to finish with a rather well-balanced stat line.
Start him. Don't be afraid.
