Ben Roethlisberger, SteelersMoving Up
Big Ben likes to throw the ball.  Big Ben likes to throw the ball deep.  Big Ben has a very fast receiver with pretty good hands.  Big Ben moves up in our rest of season forecast.  Yes folks, it is that simple. 

Jay Cutler, BearsMoving Down
At this point we really should be dropping Cutler even more, but we’re going to give him the benefit of the doubt with the bye week here, giving him time to heal and the team time to figure out what the heck is going on.  Here’s what you need to know.  After two weeks Cutler had 5 TDs.  After six games (he missed one other due to injury) he has 7 TDs.  That, in a Mike Martz offense, stinks on ice. 

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bills Moving Up
This guy is on a bullet train up the charts.  He’s not just playing well, he’s playing superbly.  Any questions about whether he was legit were answered Sunday when he put on a clinic against the Ravens.  This could be just a fluke, but whatever it is, ride it for all its worth.

Jon Kitna, CowboysMoving Up
Kitna doesn’t get much respect, but he’s a decent enough quarterback, and now he’ll be forced into action for at least the next six weeks with Tony Romo injured.  The Cowboys are going to be in a good number of shootouts, as they were this week, and they’re likely to be behind quite a bit, so Kitna should be a decent starting option if he’s needed going forward.

Kevin Kolb, EaglesMoving Down
It is looking more and more like Michael Vick will be given the starting nod when he returns to full health, which doesn’t bode well for Kolb’s fantasy numbers the rest of this season, though he doesn’t drop off entirely as Vick’s style of play makes him susceptible to injuries like the one he’s recovering from.
