As always lots of action to discuss so let's get to all the latest QB happenings in fantasy football Week 2.

Matt Ryan:  24/44 for 231 yards with 1 TD and 3 INT.  Rough day and rough matchup for Ryan so no total shocker there.  The offensive line held together as good as possible considering the very good Bengals rush.  No worries going forward however as Ryan remains a firm every week guy.

Andy Dalton:  15/23 for 252 yards with 1 TD.  The running game was the star for Cincy today but Dalton at least didn't turn the football over which is always key with him.  Liking the start.

Ryan Tannehill:  31/49 for 241 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.  Tannehill was running for his life all game which is a horrible sign for his fantasy football value and growth as a QB.  Hold for another week or so but he careful of the matchup.

Drew Brees:  27/40 for 237 yards with 2 TD and 1 INT.  Rare to see Brees throw for under 200 yards but the Saints offense as a whole doesn't work as well on the road. 

Brian Hoyer:  24/40 for 204 yards with 2 TD and 1 INT.  Johnny Manziel who?  Hoyer has played well whenever he has gotten a chance for the Browns and in now way can Mike Pettine even think of a change at this point off this monstrous win.  Hoyer is not quite in QB 2 territory yet but he is close.

Tony Romo:  19/29 for 176 yards with 1 TD.  Solid comeback for Romo but nothing to write home about.  Continue to hold Romo but I still am not 100 percent comfortable on using him yet in single-QB formats.

Jake Locker:  18/34 for 234 yards with 1 TD and 2 INT.  One step forward and one step back for Locker who is still only in the second QB realm if that. 

Tom Brady:  15/22 for 149 yards with 1 TD.  Second straight week Brady put up a listless stat line and at 37 it clearly is fair to wonder if he has turned the corner on his career.  Even more worrisome is the fact the Patriots line is awful and those who own Ryan Tannehill know how bad that can be.

Eli Manning:  26/39 for 277 yards with 2 TD and 2 INT.  The INT's are just ridiculous with Eli and he clearly has to be considered one of the worst starting QB's in the game right now and a radioactive fantasy football passer.

Kirk Cousins:  22/33 for 250 yards with 2 TD.  All those Cousins fans who argued for him to get a shot have gotten their wish as a dislocated ankle has RGIII out for awhile.  Cousins' first toss was a TD and he didn't look back from there.  Monitor for now.

Matthew Stafford:  27/48 for 291 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.  This is pretty much all you could expect out of Stafford given the rough matchup with the Carolina defense.  In fact given Stafford's propensity for turning it over, be happy it wasn't worse.

Cam Newton:  22/34 for 281 yards with 1 TD and 19 yards rushing.  This is Newton in a nutshell.  Not big with the numbers but solid enough to be an every week guy.  Not a fan.

Russell Wilson:  17/25 for 202 yards and 2 TD while rushing for 18 yards.  Wilson was lucky to get the two TD's as he was under siege all game.  A better home QB than on the road, Wilson is a guy who is wholly depended on the touchdowns since he doesn't throw it as much as some of the other top passers.

Philip Rivers:  28/37 for 284 yards and 3 TD.  People tend to forget just how good Rivers is and he annually is one of the best fantasy football QB values in the game.  In fact I can't remember another QB carving up the Seattle D the way Rivers did in this one. 

Peyton Manning:  21/26 for 242 yards with 3 TD.  Manning got his customary 3 TD's and didn't get hurt.  I good day at the office.

Ryan Fitzpatrick:  14/19 for 139 yards and 2 TD's.  The smartest QB in the NFL has led the Texans to a 2-0 start despite a noodle arm.  Nice record but in now way does Fitzpatrick deserve to sniff a fantasy football roster.

Aaron Rodgers:  25/42 for 346 yards and 3 TD with 1 fumble.  Incredible day for Rodgers who played pitch and catch with Jordy Nelson.
