QUARTERBACK
Studs
Peyton Manning: I expect Manning to move the ball up and down the field against the Raiders this week.

Terrelle Pryor: He’s going to get plenty of garbage time opportunity this week to get you fantasy points.

Matt Stafford: I expect him and Megatron (Calvin Johnson) to have a field day with the Washington Redskins’ secondary.

Carson Palmer: He’s going to be in a shootout against the New Orleans Saints. I expect Michael Floyd to have a coming out party and Andre Roberts to catch a lot of balls.

Duds
Andrew Luck: He’s facing the San Francisco 49ers defense, and it’s a bad matchup for him this week. The 49ers’ defense is second in the NFL in completion percentage with 51.8 percent. They are 10th in the NFL in total yards, but some of those yards are inflated due to playing the Green Bay Packers in week one.

Blaine Gabbert/Chad Henne: Neither QB is worth starting this week, let alone any player on the Jaguars. They are playing Seattle, and it’s going to be ugly for that offense.

Ben Roethlisberger: He hasn’t looked good yet this year, and he’s going against a tough Chicago Bears defense that can cause a lot of turnovers.
