Fantasy Check

PvP: Week 14 quarterbacks


Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub were the three top fantasy quarterbacks this week, each exceeding his projection by at least five points.

Here's the rest of the top 10 PvP, with projections courtesy of Fantasy Football Nerd:

1. Brees: 23.5 projected points/29 points scored
2. Aaron Rodgers: 21.9/9
3. Philip Rivers: 20.6/16
4. Schaub: 20/26
5. Manning: 20/32
6. Kurt Warner: 19.9/7
7. Tom Brady: 19.8/13
8. Brett Favre: 18/13
9. Tony Romo: 18/21
10. Alex Smith: 16.5/17

The biggest overachiever of the week was Eli Manning, who was projected at 14.1 points but scored 34 in wild 45-38 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. No surprise given the high-scoring game that Donovan McNabb exceeded his projection (16.4/25) as well.

Staying in the NFC East, don't look now, but Jason Campbell has become a serviceable option as a fantasy starter. He was projected to score 13.1 points but accounted for 22.

Over the past three games, Campbell has averaged 273 yards and 2.3 touchdowns. In standard scoring, Campbell has averaged 27 fantasy points per game over that stretch.

Campbell has a favorable matchup against the Giants in Week 15. Although New York is ranked ninth against the pass, allowing 206.5 yards per game, the Giants have given up 23 touchdown passes, tied for sixth most in the league.

Romo also has been humming over the the past three games. He has averaged 26 fantasy points per week, passing for 317 yards per game with seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Expect another 25-plus outing from Romo this week against the Saints, who rank 23rd against the pass (236 ypg), in a game in which Vegas oddmakers have put the over/under at 53.5.
