Craig Morton Division
16. Andy Dalton (LW: 15)
Dalton only moves back one spot because he played well in the first two games, but man alive, you can’t throw four interceptions. The Bengals don’t have a huge margin for error, so if they are going to stay atop the AFC North, they need Dalton to be one of the better quarterbacks in the league at protecting the ball.
15. Cam Newton (LW: 14)
Newton has only thrown for 646 yards, and while he has five touchdowns with only a single interception, the output is too meager to warrant a higher slot. Newton is one of the game’s great athletes and certainly his weaponry isn’t phenomenal in Carolina, but he doesn’t throw well enough consistently to move up.
14. Andrew Luck (LW: 11)
Luck has to move down a bit, at least until he regains his previous form. The Colts are playing well for a 1-2 team, but consider the following: Luck has only 662 passing yards on 5.34 yards per attempt. The only qualifying quarterback who has been worse in the latter department? Sam Bradford.
13. Ryan Fitzpatrick (LW: 16)
Fitzpatrick was rough in the first half on Monday night, throwing three interceptions. However, nice job by Fitzy to bounce back and end up with 411 yards and three touchdowns, putting Tampa Bay in position to win. He absolutely has to start next week despite Jameis Winston’s return.
