Week 6 brings a new face to tier 2: Jay Cutler. He had a great performance last week and this week he faces the generous Giants.
Alex Smith has found his way into tier 3. The Chiefs are rolling and experts don't think the Raiders are going to be the ones stopping them. Smith is the last QB I feel good about this week.
The drop off into tier 4 is substantial. Joe Flacco has been streaky, Terrelle Pryor is against a hot Chiefs defense, and Eli and the Giants have all sorts of problems.
Tier 2: Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Jay Cutler
Tier 3: Matthew Stafford, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Alex Smith
Tier 4: Joe Flacco, Terrelle Pryor, Eli Manning, Matt Schaub
Tier 5: Andy Dalton, Ben Roethlisberger, Chad Henne, Nick Foles, Sam Bradford, Geno Smith, Brandon Weeden, Mike Glennon
Tier 6: Carson Palmer, Matt Cassel, Jeff Tuel, Christian Ponder
