2. Tom Brady @ Buffalo
3. Peyton Manning @ Oakland
4. Drew Brees @ Atlanta (Monday)
5. Philip Rivers @ Cincinnati
6. Matt Schaub @ Denver
7. Aaron Rodgers vs. New York Giants

15. Matt Ryan vs. New Orleans (Monday)
16. Kerry Collins @ Kansas City
17. Matt Cassel vs. Tennessee
18. Sam Bradford vs. San Francisco
19. Jay Cutler vs. New York Jets
20. Chad Henne vs. Detroit
21. Troy Smith  @ St. Louis
22. Shaun  Hill @ Miami
23. Tim Tebow vs. Houston
24. Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. New England
25. John Skelton vs. Dallas

Inside the numbers:

  • Tom Brady may be the league MVP, but Michael Vick is the fantasy MVP.
  • My gut says Aaron Rodgers will be able to go this week. I’m a little worried that he can stand up to the Giants’ pressure, but it would be hard not to trust him if he starts.
  • Kitna’s been a little up and down, but should be a strong play against the Cardinals this week.
  • Rex Grossman surprisingly delivered the goods this past week against Dallas. He has another strong matchup against Jacksonville as he auditions for a 2011 starting gig.
  • Kerry Collins isn’t quite as strong of a play this week, but he’s been playing well and Kenny Britt is back.
  • Tim Tebow scored on the ground and through the air, but despite a favorable matchup against Houston, I can’t justify taking a gamble on him this week.
  • It looks like Mark Sanchez will be limited if he’s able to go this week. He can’t be trusted.
