Tier 2 quarterbacks continue to be a very tight group. Vick remains high this week with his excellent matchup this week against the Giants. Rivers has earned serious respect this week after his performances in the first four weeks.
The drop of between tier 2 and 3 this week I find easily explainable. Eli has a good matching against the Eagles, but he's been hard to trust. Kaepernick faces a tough Houston defense which took apart Wilson last week. It's hard to like anyone below Bradford this week.
Tier 1: Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford
Tier 2: Michael Vick, Philip Rivers, Tom Brady, Cam Newton, Tony Romo, Matt Ryan
Tier 3: Eli Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Sam Bradford, Terrelle Pryor, Russell Wilson
