Robert Griffin III: The Packers gave up a ton of yards to Colin Kaepernick. Also, the Redskins’ pass defense is horrid, which means an opportunity for garbage time points from RG3.

The Manning Brothers: The Manning bowl is going to be a shootout, showcasing a sibling rivalry. The Giants’ pass defense is godawful, and Peyton will chew them up like a piece of cotton candy Bubblicious bubble gum. I expect Eli to have 50 attempts or more. Tom Coughlin doesn’t trust the running game, and they are going to have to run the ball to be able to move the chains on the Broncos.

Terrelle Pryor: He’s going to produce. I know this because he suffers from this disease that I made up called “Tebowitis,” where you are not that good at real football but you are awesome at fantasy football. Last week, he had 112 rushing yards and 217 passing yards, and he’s got a great match-up against the Jaguars.
Start him!

Cam Newton: He’s playing the Bills, who last week gave up a ton of rushing yards to Patriots. Cam should be able to run all over them, and that should open up the passing game for him.

Aaron Rodgers: He’s Aaron Rodgers … he’s always a stud, but against the Redskins’ defense, he’s going to be even more studly.

Ben Roethlisberger: He’s playing a tough Cincinnati defense, and his offensive line is banged up.

Jake Locker: He’s playing Houston, and he’s the most inaccurate QB in the league.

Joe Flacco: Joe Haden is going to shut down Torrey Smith like he did Mike Wallace last week. The Browns have a top 10 defense, and Flacco is going to be in trouble this week.
