Week 11 Top 10 Quarterbacks

1) Kurt Warner (ARZ @ SEA)- What is there not to like about Warner in week 11? He's had three straight 300+ yard games and thrown 7 touchdowns during that stretch. He's also up against the terrible Seattle defense that is giving up the second most passing yards per game (252).

2) Jay Cutler (DEN @ ATL)- I mentioned last week that it appeared Cutler was starting to heat up again, and boy was I right. He threw for a career high 447 yards last week and should continue to put up great numbers as the Broncos have virtually no running game left. He also has an decent match up against a below average Falcons passing defense.

3) Drew Brees (NO @ KC)- Despite three interceptions, Brees threw for 422 yards and 2 TD's last week and has favorable match up versus the Chiefs in week 11. The turnovers last week are a concern, however you can count on him to attempt 40 passes and get quality yardage each week.

4) Peyton Manning (IND vs. HOU)- Manning had another solid outing last week against the tough Steelers defense and I expect that to continue this week against the Texans. He's not reaching that 300 yard mark that we'd like to see, but he's throwing TD's consistently which makes up for it.

5) Matt Ryan (ATL vs. DEN)- The rookie continues to impress week after week. He's thrown 2 touchdowns in each of his last 3 games and has a great match up against a Broncos defense that have only 3 interceptions on the year.

6) Donovan McNabb (PHI @ CIN)- McNabb only threw for 194 yards last week, but did manage a respectable 3 TD's in the loss to NFC East rival Giants. Look for McNabb to "rebound" this week against a Bengals defense that lacks interceptions (5 on the year) and sacks (second to last in the league w/ only 9).

7) Philip Rivers (SD @ PIT)- Rivers was his usual self last week throwing for 316 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Chiefs. The Steelers are not the greatest match up for a QB, but Rivers is leading the league in passing TD's w/ 21 and is a must start unless you have a better option this week.

8) Jeff Garcia (TB vs. MIN)- Garcia has been asked to pass more in recent weeks and looked good in his last start (week 9 @ KC) as he threw for 339 yards. Coming off a bye week and facing an average Vikings pass defense should be an encouraging factor for Garcia owners.

9) Tyler Thigpen (KC vs. NO)- Amazingly Thigpen has been decent since regaining the starting job last month. Since then he's thrown 6 touchdowns, 710 yards, and zero interceptions in those three games. He makes the cut for week 11 after a 3 TD performance last week and a great match against a bad Saints pass defense.

10) Jake Delhomme (CAR vs. DET)- I don't think anyone really knows what happened to Delhomme last week. Honestly after that terrible performance he shouldn't be on this list. Two things get him on this list. He's been good at home this year (8 TD's to 2 INT's) and faces one of the leagues worst defenses (Detroit). The Lions have a league worst 2 interceptions this year, which should help Jake out a bit this week.
