Week 13 Top 10 Quarterbacks

1) Peyton Manning (IND @ CLE)- Peyton has thrown at least 2 touchdowns in his last five games, and should continue that streak this week against an average Brown's defense. He remains a must start.

2) Tony Romo (DAL vs. SEA)- Romo threw for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns in his second game back from injury. In week 12 he locked in on TO (connecting for 213 yards) and should have another HUGE game this week against Seattle's terrible pass defense. The Seahawks allow 259 yards/game through the air and only have 5 interceptions on the year.

3) Kurt Warner (ARZ @ PHI)- Warner had his second straight game with one touchdown (and also one interception). Despite the lack of TD's he's still putting up big yardage, throwing for over 328 yards in five straight games. Even in his "bad" games he won't disappoint and remains a must start.

4) Drew Brees (NO @ TB)- Brees followed up a sub-par week 11, with a monster game against the Packers on MNF. After a 323 yard/4TD game, he now leads the league in passing yards and is second in touchdowns. Brees has a tough matchup this week against the Bucs, but did put up good stats in their week one showdown (343 yards, 3 TD's).

5) Matt Ryan (ATL @ SD)- The good news: Ryan had a another solid outing in week 12 throwing for 259 yards against the Panthers. The bad news: He's now gone 2 straight games without a touchdown, after going three straight with at least 2 TD's. Look for Ryan to bounce back with a favorable match up against the leagues worst passing defense.

6) Philip Rivers (SD vs. ATL)- Rivers will have a bad game every now and then, but is still a high-end QB, as he leads the league with 23 touchdowns. He rebounded from a poor week 11 performance with 288 yards and 2 touchdowns last week against the Colts. Look for another solid outing against the Falcons.

7) Brett Favre (NYJ vs. DEN)- Favre remains a solid fantasy option as he continues to keep his turnovers down. He's thrown 5 touchdowns in his his last three games (with only one interception) and has a good match up this week against a Denver pass defense who are next to last in the league in interceptions (4 interceptions on the year).

8) Matt Cassel (NE vs. PIT)- Cassel became the first quarterback in Patriots history to throw consecutive 400 yards games, as he threw for 415 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Dolphins in week 12. He has an insanely tough match up against the Steelers this week, but it's tough to go against a guy that has been this hot. Starting Cassel this week is a bit risky, and really comes down to what your other options are.

9) Jay Cutler (DEN @ NJY)- Cutler has been s streaky quarterback this season and is currently in a bad stretch (week 11= 216yds, 1 TD, week 12= 204yds, 0TD, 1 INT). This isn't a great matchup for Cutler, but there is always that potential for him to throw for big numbers.

10) Chad Pennington (MIA @ STL)- Pennington threw for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns in week 12 after poor performances in his previous two games. He has a favorable match up in week 13 that makes his a decent option.
