Joe Flacco is going up against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that made Tom Brady look average last Sunday.

He needs to be starting on the bench this weekend and here are two other QBs that should be residing right beside him.

Joe Flacco

Joe Flacco will not strike gold twice this season. He is not going to be able to spark his Ravens team to replicate their Week 1 performance.

The Pittsburgh Steelers made Tom Brady look very average. They only let him pass for 198 yards and a two touchdowns.

Joe Flacco is not half as good as Brady and he will be beaten up all day. The Ravens also will have to lean on him as they have hesitated to really get their run started in most weeks this season.

Kevin Kolb

Kevin Kolb has looked very poor so far this season. He does not appear like he is going to be putting up the numbers to carry any team to victory.

Kolb has turf toe and is listed as doubtful but there is a chance he will be in the game on Sunday against the Rams.

He is not worth the gamble due to his average performances all season.

The Cardinals should leave him on the bench as should fantasy owners.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick is going up against a great Jets secondary that has Revis Island floating around in it.

He is on the way to a career-best season, but he is not going to put up quality numbers against the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Leave Fitzpatrick on the bench but if any fantasy owners have the Bills running back Fred Jackson then start him.
