We are already at Week 14 in the NFL regular season, which means that your fantasy team should just about be set to start the playoffs.

At this point, the need for sleepers and subs is slowly diminishing. Right now you should have a solid roster to make a push for the title in the last few weeks.

Now, all we can do is sit back and enjoy the action.

Here are projections for the top three fantasy quarterbacks this weekend.

3. Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers)

Unless he finds a way to get injured, it looks like Cam Newton is going to break some of Peyton Manning's rookie records in the upcoming weeks.

Newton has been unbelievable this season. His only flaw has been the turnovers that he has forced in crucial situations.

Those mistakes will slowly fade with experience.

This weekend the Panthers take on the Atlanta Falcons, who boast one of the top rushing defenses in the league.

The Panthers typically put the ball in Newton's hands the majority of the game, regardless of situation. That should be the case again.

Expect a lot of throws and a lot of yards for Newton this weekend.

Projection: 275 yards passing, 40 yards rushing, three total touchdowns, one interception

2. Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints)

You can't ever go wrong with the current leading passer in the league.

Brees' 4,031 yards are unbelievable when you look at them on paper. It's just as amazing when you watch him play.

Brees has thrown for less than 300 yards only three times this season.

Matchups never really matter when it comes to Brees, but if you were wondering, the Tennessee Titans rank right in the middle of the pack at 18th in passing defense.

It should be yet another huge weekend for Brees as he closes in on the record.

Projection: 320 yards passing, three touchdowns

1. Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers)

Brees could very well have a better game, but I just feel like it's unacceptable to even mention another quarterback ahead of Rodgers right now.

In case you live under a rock, Rodgers is putting together one of the greatest seasons ever at the quarterback position.

He has an unreal 125.3 quarterback rating along with 3,844 passing yards. His 37 touchdowns to five interceptions is by far the best ratio in the league.

Records will be broken.

The Packers play the Raiders this weekend, who rank right around the same place as the Titans in passing defense. They are 17th in the league in terms of yards allowed.

Projection: 340 yards passing, five total touchdowns
