Donovan McNabb, Eagles – Moving Down
This is only a slight move down, although McNabb could take more of a dip depending on how much time Brian Westbrook misses. One week McNabb torches Detroit with a healthy Westbrook posing a legitimate running threat. The next, against arguably a just as bad pass defense in the Giants, McNabb lays a complete egg. Is McNabb that dependent on a healthy Westbrook?

Derek Anderson, Browns – Moving Up
Maybe Cleveland isn’t such a black hole of offense after all. You may need to throw your preseason preconceptions out the window, because the fact is the Browns are 2-2 and Anderson is averaging 241 yards and two TDs a game so far. You can say his explosion against the Bengals was an anomaly, but do you say the same about his two TDs against the Ravens? Anderson and Braylon Edwards have become a strong passing-receiving tandem, and there’s no reason to believe Anderson will fall off a cliff any time soon.

Marc Bulger, Rams – Moving Down
It may be too charitable to keep Bulger as a Top 20 quarterback. That’s how much of a disaster the St. Louis offense has become. The Ram offensive line has been decimated beyond belief, there’s no telling when, or if, Steven Jackson will return from a torn groin, and Bulger himself looks like if he takes one more solid shot his ribs will turn to powder. Bulger’s fall this season is rivaled only by that of Drew Brees.

Daunte Culpepper, Raiders – Moving Up
Culpepper’s passing yardage against Miami was laughable, yes (75 yards). But he still had two TDs and added another THREE on the ground against Miami. His knee is fine, and that makes him a dangerous presence. The Raiders are 2-2, Culpepper quarterbacked the second half of the Cleveland win and all of the Miami win. As long as Oakland is in contention, Culpepper should be the starter – even when Josh McCown gets cleared to return from a broken toe.

Brian Griese, Bears – Moving Up
Chicago, you wanted him, you got him. The good news is Griese put up 286 yards and two TDs against the Lions. The bad news is he threw three INTs and was sacked six times. But Lovie Smith has cast his lot with Griese, so he should remain the starter for the foreseeable future. And until the Bears get some of their injured defenders back, Griese will more than likely have to air it out a lot for Chicago to have a chance to win.

Jake Delhomme, Panthers – Moving Down
Delhomme hasn’t been ruled out for the season yet, but there are rumblings that he’ll need surgery on his right elbow and he’ll probably miss next week. The only reason he remains in the Top 30 is that there’s at least a chance he’ll return Week 6. If he does, and he’s anywhere close to 100 percent, he’ll be a must start simply because of Steve Smith’s presence. If he’s not in the lineup Week 8 (Carolina has a bye in Week 7) then his season will more than likely be over.

Alex Smith, 49ers – Moving Down
Smith separated his throwing shoulder against the Seahawks and will be out at least three weeks (he’s been ruled out against Baltimore next week and San Francisco has a bye the next week). It’s extremely doubtful he’ll see the field for a few weeks after that. Dump him immediately and try to pickup another backup QB.
