Everybody catches a break this week, no starting quarterbacks will be on the bench because of a bye. Remember, this week starts the Thursday night games, so be sure to set your players for that game between Oakland and San Diego. Both of those teams have interesting stories at quarterback, Philip Rivers and Carson Palmer threw for a lot of touchdowns last week, but both threw too many interceptions. Let's check on them and other quarterbacks for Week 10.
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated quarterbacks in Week 10. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
Is anybody playing better than Aaron Rodgers? The answer is no. He tops the early projections this week. Ryan Fitzpatrick has cooled since the start of the season and is coming off a bad statistical game, but the computer likes his chances against Dallas this week. Tim Tebow, the newest dual-threat quarterback (okay, for one week he was a dual-threat) barely makes the top 15 list at this point. That could change, check back as these rankings will update throughout the week.
* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
Injured players appear on the list, this is their projection IF they play.
