Philip Rivers, ChargersMoving Up
Rivers is leading the league in passing yardage and is behind only Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in touchdowns.  Not bad for a guy that got very little respect on draft day.  Evidently owners thought no Vincent Jackson would hurt his value, but it would seem not.  With the running game struggling, Rivers is having to carry the team, and there’s no reason to think this won’t continue.

Michael Vick, EaglesMoving Up
Vick moves up another big chunk this week, as he proves beyond too much of a doubt that he’s really back and actually better than he was when he played in Atlanta.  Vick owners are living the dream, and there’s no reason they shouldn’t be able to keep living it for a few weeks anyway. 

Matt Cassel, ChiefsMoving Up
Cassel isn’t doing it pretty, but he’s doing it enough to make fantasy owners happy.  He has one of the nicest schedules for passers as things are developing this season and could end up as a top ten fantasy quarterback when the season is in the books.  The Chiefs are gaining confidence, so look for things to continue to go well for them and Cassel. 

Mark Sanchez, JetsMoving Up
Sanchez still doesn’t look like he’s going to become a gunslinger in the vein of a Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, but he’s proving to be able to manage a game fairly well.  It remains to be seen if he’ll be more valuable as a fantasy starter than say Troy Aikman was, but at the moment it looks like he may be heading in that direction.  After a rough first week, he’s come back nicely and should remain a solid mid tier option.

David Garrard, JaguarsMoving Down
With Todd Bouman and Trent Edwards having just been signed, Garrard’s days may be numbered as a starter in Jacksonville.  The team knows that at this point it would be hard to do much worse than Garrard is doing.  He’s long been good at home, bad on the road, but the magic was gone this week.  The future looks fairly bleak.
