QB – Michael Vick – $8,900
Has had good weeks, but the Chiefs defense isn’t all that bad.

QB – Drew Brees $9,200
Pretty good matchup – you just hope Brees has more TD’s than last week.

QB – Robert Griffin III – $8,900
I don’t think he’s healthy and you’re not getting the rushing yards/TD’s you need from him.

QB – Matthew Stafford – $9,100
Has put up decent numbers – and every QB has looked great against Washington = solid play.

QB – Aaron Rodgers – $10,100
A-Rod might actually be worth the price this week. The Packers should destroy the Bengals secondary.

QB – Andy Dalton – $7,200
If you want to experiment (like in 1 matchup) with AD in your lineup, it’s not a horrible play for the price. The Bengals should be down in this game, and they love to throw the ball.

QB – Joe Flacco – $7,000
If for some reason you want to save money on QB, Flacco faces a team that has given up big yardage on occasion to QB’s but only play Flacco if it’s your last resort.

QB – Matt Schaub – $7,000
Possibly without Andre Johnson, makes a bad play even worse against a defense that can still play a bit.

QB – Cam Newton – $8,400
The Giants have struggled enough to think about putting Cam in this week … but his weapons are weak.

QB – Eli Manning $8,100
Don’t like Eli against a sneaky tough defense, but if he’s one of your only options … it could be worse.

QB – Philip Rivers
Goes against a sneaky tough D this week. Back 2 Back east coast games ++ not having his main WR might hurt the lighting bolts this week.

QB – Sam Bradford – $7,400
If you want to save money on a QB, Bradford is not a bad option given his first 2 weeks.

QB – Tony Romo – $7,800
Tony might have a good week – but he’s probably not 100% healthy either.

QB – Tom Brady – $8,300
Even Tom can’t make his WR crew look good. He’s not putting up big enough numbers to play him.

QB – Matt Ryan – $9,000
Pretty solid option, but Miami is actually pretty good this year.

QB – Ryan Tannehill – $6,300
If he can throw 2 TD’s (instead of 1 like the first 2 weeks) he is a great value at this price.

QB – Colin Kaepernick – $8.800
This run/pass threat might be a good option this week at home. He still had ok numbers against Seattle in a tough environment.

QB – Andrew Luck – $8,500
Hasn’t lit up the TD board … this is almost a home game for this former Stanford Cardinal.

QB – Jay Cutler – $7,300
Andy Dalton didn’t look to bad against the Steelers on MNF … and the Bears beat the Bengals week 1. Cutler’s not a horrible value here.

QB – Peyton Manning – $10,700
Can’t go wrong with Peyton … should have a solid game at home, but might not be throwing late.

QB – Terrelle Pryor – $6,000
At this price you have to take note. He’ll be relied on to make plays as they will be down in this game.


I’m multi-entering the $0.25 — $1,000 Guaranteed (1,000 people cash … about as easy $$$ as it gets in this business)

These are the “cheaper” QB’s I’m using so far:

Sam Bradford – Playing Dallas … and he’s got solid numbers on the year. He’s pretty cheap on most sites and I’m not 100% sure why. The Vegas O/U is 47 (which is near the top this week) and Dallas is a micro-favorite at -3.5.

Colin Kaepernick – He plays well at home, and if you don’t want one of the top 5 QB’s he’s a good option.

Andy Dalton – taking a chance here that the Bengals are down a bit in this game against Green Bay and that he has to throw a bunch. Andy has been throwing the ball somewhat erratically so the INT’s could bring me down. But I think he can get at least 2 TD’s in this game for a cheap price.
