Look at how great Eli Manning played in the playoffs during their Super Bowl run and he really hasn't performed any better fantasy wise following that at all. There are other factors there and certainly Fitz has a better chance at succeeding from a fantasy standpoint than Manning but the risks that move him down people's list are still there which is why he's not #1 on alot of people's rankings around here.
Well, no one here is saying that Fitz is going to go for 2400 yards and 28 TDs next year (believe it or not, that's what his playoff stats prorate out to), just that it shows how much of a fallacy the thought that Fitz doesn't have the same upside as the other two is.
The Manning example is a poor one, because Eli wasn't great fantasy-wise during that playoff run. His postseason stats in that super bowl run prorate out to 3400yds and 24 TDs over the course of a whole season, which is pretty much dead on with the actual regular season numbers he's put up in every season of his career.
