Rivers may have had a rough game last week, but there is a reason he was in MVP conversations. With a bye on the line, you can bet he will be startable this week in Denver.Baker has been sensational this season, but that doesn't mean you should run him out there in standard one-QB leagues this week versus the Ravens. In fact, he is outside the top 15 options.
