Philip Rivers and the Chargers have been hot on offense, and a strong matchup this week against Denver (10th for QB) put him in tier 1. Nick Foles makes the jump into tier 2 this week after his historic 7 TD week.
Colin Kaepernick, who is usually higher, falls to tier 3 this week facing a stingy Carolina defense (32nd for QB). Matt Ryan falls to tier 4 facing Seattle (31st for QB). Jake Locker leads tier 3 and is a tempting play this week as he faces Jacksonville (2nd for QB).
Tier 1: Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford, Philip Rivers
Tier 2: Russell Wilson, Robert Griffin III, Tony Romo, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Nick Foles
Tier 3: Jake Locker, Colin Kaepernick, Eli Manning, Andy Dalton, Ben Roethlisberger, Terrelle Pryor
Tier 4: Matt Ryan, Josh McCown, Case Keenum, Jay Cutler, Ryan Tannehill, Christian Ponder, Joe Flacco, Seneca Wallace
Tier 5: Mike Glennon, Carson Palmer, E.J. Manuel, Chad Henne
