Let's start this segment talking about a few quarterbacks who aren't listed below. You could call this a pseudo-honorable mention of sorts. Carson Wentz ($7500) of Philly was someone I debated as a GPP recommendation. Playing on the road against a hungry Detroit team (dropped a game they were expected to win last week) pleads for use of caution, but Detroit ranks in the bottom five against the pass and Wentz has been remarkably efficient this season. He should be ready to roll following the bye week ... Tom Brady is also intriguing as a GPP Play who deserves borderline cash game consideration. He has been suspended up to this point, but you better believe he'll come out with something to prove. It just so happens he'll fall into a matchup that could allow him to make a statement, as the Browns have been one of the most generous defenses in the league this season ... Below we are taking a look at two cash game quarterbacks, two GPP quarterbacks, and a value. Opposing defenses, game theory, prices, and individual quarterback numbers are taken into account.

Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers

Big Ben has been pretty freakin' good at home over the last few seasons, and I expect that to continue on Sunday. The weather should be great (something to always double-check) in Pittsburgh, and the Steelers' passing attack will surely rattle off a fair amount of big plays. Roethlisberger was already a fantasy stalwart to consider every week, but the return of Le'Veon Bell (one of the best pass-catching RBs in the league) improves that sentiment even more. The struggles of Darrelle Revis and the Jets' secondary have been well documented this season, giving up big plays time and time again. Roethlisberger could put on a clinic for a second straight week.
