Quick Hits  - On pace for a ridiculous 5421 yards, 45TDs, and only 7INTs, Aaron Rodgers is better than your favorite team’s quarterback … After a dismal week against the lowly Rams, Drew Brees should get back on track against the Bucs at home … It goes without saying, start Tom Brady.  Eli is also a no-brainer start here, as the Patriots’ pass defense has struggled to stop anyone this year (including Chad Henne) … Matt Ryan hasn’t been good this year, but there’s not many better teams to rebound against than the lowly Colts.  300 yards and 2+ TDs shouldn’t be difficult at all … Philip Rivers’ struggles continue, but the Chargers are going to have to move the ball through the air to keep up with the Packers, who have surprisingly allowed the 4th most points per game to opposing quarterbacks … Both Josh Freeman and Mark Sanchez are recommended plays this week.  Freeman’s best game of the year came in week 6, against the same New Orleans team he’ll face this week.  Sanchez shouldn’t have too difficult a time at home against Buffalo … Tim Tebow looked awful last week, but I’d still give him a look this week against the Raiders.  He’s going to get rushing yards, some chances for rushing scores, and has still managed to throw passing TDs.  There is still some upside here … Having the bye week to finally get comfortable in the offense, the matchup is right to start Carson Palmer if you’re a Stafford or Newton owner … Andy Dalton continues to be impressive in his rookie campaign, and is another candidate for a bye week fill-in.  I’d trust him more than Flacco in Pittsburgh this week … I’m avoiding Fitzpatrick against the Jets.  The chances for success will be limited, and this is likely a game that will be won on the ground with Fred Jackson.
