Watching tape in preparation for the Giants this weekend, Rob Ryan has to be licking his lips or plucking his gray beard; however excitement manifests with the Cowboys defensive coordinator, he must have shown plenty of it after seeing New York’s situation at offensive tackle.
With one more week of byes to endure, Jason Smith runs down the list of top 10 fantasy quarterbacks, including a veteran who continues to prove his elite status.
For this week’s quarterback rankings, there are no byes, remember. We’re skipping a week before they finish up in Week 11. That means you play all of the Holy Five: Rodgers, Brady, Vick, Brees, and Newton — regardless of matchup. This makes picking the next five best QBs extremely difficult because they’re all available. Here’s how I rank them six through 10 for Week 10.

Tom Landry was a stone-faced icon, a “football god on Earth,” according to Skip Bayless. So what made the legendary Cowboys coach tick? Peel back the mask with Thursday’s premiere of “A Football Life: Tom Landry” on NFL Network.
Week 9 of the fantasy quarterback rankings sees a new name slip into the top five, while Ben Roethliberger makes the list despite a potentially difficult matchup.
Last week, we mentioned that Tom Brady would have to have an absolutely abysmal game in Pittsburgh to drop off the pace to break Dan Marino‘s record for most passing yards in a season. Well, he’s still on pace to shatter that mark of 5,084, but Brady’s bad day actually pushed him down to third on the list of candidates to set the new mark.
In this week’s quarterback rankings list, Philip Rivers falls out of the top five. Did Jason Smith see fit to leave him in the top 10?

Jason Smith takes his weekly look at fantasy quarterbacks and with Philip Rivers on a bye this week, Jason welcomes a new name into his list of the top five.
