Matthew Stafford, LionsMoving Up
It took him a good half of football to get his rhythm back, but once he did he put it in the end zone four times.  Not a bad start.  He has some tough matchups coming up, but this offense is built around the pass and as long as he stays healthy he’ll put up some nice fantasy numbers moving forward.

Donovan McNabb, RedskinsMoving Down
The talk of the day last Sunday was the benching of McNabb with two minutes left in the game.  The reality is, McNabb hasn’t been as strong as many would like him to be. He hits a nice pass now and then, but he’s an all or nothing option at this point, and with the uncertainty of a possible controversy, he slides on our rankings.

David Garrard, Jaguars Moving Up
For one week at least Garrard figured out how to play on the road.  He’s still frustrating in his inconsistency, but he’s looked better more often than he hasn’t this year and at times seems to have his team clicking around him.  The passing game has played a much bigger part of the Jags offense this year, so Garrard should continue to put up more good numbers than bad – at least for this year.

Matt Moore, PanthersMoving Up
Moore is going to remain the starter for a while it appears, and he’s been serviceable the past couple of weeks – not enough to move way up the list, but enough to make him relevant. 

Max Hall, CardinalsMoving Down
Hall makes the top 35 simply because he’ll be on the field, but this situation looks to be ugly as all get out moving forward.  With weapons like Fitzgerald and Breaston there is opportunity a plenty, but the fact remains that the team is just not playing well for the most part.  He’ll get yanked a couple of more times, but is likely the starter for the rest of the season.

Alex Smith, 49ersMoving Down
Here’s the situation.  For now Smith barely hangs in our rankings, as he’s out for about three weeks or so with a separated shoulder.  The thing to note is that if Troy Smith plays half-way decently, Smith may not get the gig back when he returns as the team has just about run out of patience with him.  All in all it doesn’t bode well for Smith and fantasy owners.
