I feel Rivers was and is the best QB in the group. He is smart a proven winner in big games and a very quick release. San Diego did well in the draft and I look foward to them in the futur.

How about J.Harrington as a good sleeper he is now loaded with offensive weapons.

Biggest FANTASY impact? None of them will have a BIG fantasy impact. My pick would go to the guy who starts from day 1 and right now that looks most like Eli Manning.

Schottenheimer implied that he would be willing to start Rivers right away. He eluded to the days of Kosar and how he started him as a rookie.

If Big Ben starts it has to be him. I would take Ward and Plax over Toomer and Hilliard or Dyson and Caldwell.

I like Big Ben this year if he starts, if he doesnt start I like Rivers since I dont know if Eli will start. But long term Big Ben is looking good-he is getting way less attention, so his expectations arent as high. With Eli, he's already got the media at him, he is expected to be the best in the draft, and atop of all that his bro is the MVP of his league and his dad being a former MVP...

I've always liked Big Ben the best and will stick with him, assuming all three are starters. Methinks he has the best weapons to help him out.

Assuming all three are starting...

1. Ben Roethlisberger
2. Eli Manning
3. Phillip Rivers

...although I wouldn't want any of them on my fantasy team next season.

Rivers next year as of now. He has the best chance to start. I'd pick Ben over him if they are btoh starting though.

I wouldnt really want any of them, since rookies make a lot of mistakes and that will be costly if your leagues punishes turnovers by your offense. But I like Ben the best, since Eli wont start out starting. Rivers could be good also, but he doesnt have the recievers to work with like Big Ben.
