This week, I break down the rushing stats of several quarterbacks, from David Garrard to Jay Cutler. Ah, Cutler: it's amazing how fast a man can run when he has to.

"Down the Stretch: Rodgers is an every-week starter in just about every league. The late schedule includes some dicey matchups (Patriots Week 15, the unpredictable Niners on Sunday), but the possibility of rushing bonuses makes Rodgers a great option even in less-than-ideal circumstances."
This comment makes no sense. The Patriots have the #26 Pass Defense and #27 Defense Overall. Even SF only has the 17th DVOA Defense.
In what world is #6 Pass Offense vs #26 Pass Defense a "dicey mathcup" for the QB.
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong.
Which one and why? Really, I have no idea what you're getting at.
Well Q above basically spelled it out. Rodgers is any every game starter (though Mike did mention this in the Rodgers paragraph).
The intro to the article starts "...there are some mid-level fantasy quarterbacks whose rushing ability makes them viable spot starters in the final weeks of the season. Here's a rundown of some less heralded running quarterbacks...", and every other QB listed is maybe a part-time fantasy QB, not a guy you start unconditionally no matter the opponent (even Cutler, because of his interceptions, sacks, and below average WRs).
In my Fantasy league, which uses standard scoring, Rodgers is the #1 QB this season. No other QB on this list is higher than #13 (Freeman) in fantasy scoring. Fitzpatrick is probably higher based on points per games started only.
FO's Tom Gower checks in from Chicago with a first-person account of what it's like to cover the NFL draft on the scene.
