Russell Wilson and Tom Brady aren't listed in the write-ups below, but they are certainly playable in all formats. Brady has a home matchup vs Cincinnati, who was recently torched by Dak Prescott and the Cowboys. Brady was amazing in his season debut, and that momentum should spill into his first home appearance of the year ... Russell Wilson is coming off a bye week, where he took some much needed time to return closer towards 100% healthy. He's welcomed by a solid home matchup vs Atlanta, a game that could yield a lot of yardage all around ... Enough about guys not listed in the "meat and potatoes" of the article. 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.

Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

This Panthers-Saints matchup is one of the highest projected scoring games of the week. There's certainly some shootout potential for both sides. As we all know, Drew Brees typically performs much better at home, and he'll face a Carolina secondary that has been flailing in recent weeks. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones were able to toast the Panthers two weeks ago, and this quick-strike New Orleans' offense holds similar firepower to take advantage. The Saints should be refreshed coming off a bye week, and I'm expecting plenty of yards/scores from New Orleans, led by their architect at quarterback.
