It’s a bitter sweet PigPen weekly today, with this representing the last edition for the 2023 CFF season. It always ends too soon, doesn’t it? I didn’t realize how popular these types of articles would be, and will definitely be continuing them next Fall.
Below, you will find that I have segmented this article into three parts. The first is a ranking of QBs I like this week, with rationale provided for each. The second segment is a list of QBs that are generally very good, but I do not like this week, with rationale provided for each. The final segment is where I provide some thoughts on QBs that I am conflicted about this week. There are 57 total QB entries included in this week’s article with analysis. 60 QBs entries total.

Who’s IN the PigPen This Week (29)
The format of this is the same deal as when I did the RB version on Sunday. One thnig to note is that when I’m quoting the strengths of opposing teams’ defences according to Fantrax, I’m basing it on the number they provide when you look at a player’s matchup. As I understand it, this score is a measure of how opposing teams’ QBs/RBs/WRs/TEs (depending on what position the player of interest plays) have performed vs. that team.
I am also using standard scoring formats (four point passing TD, six point rushing TD) as my measure.
Something I will note to the reader is that you should check the weather forecasts in the locations where your QBs are playing in November, because the weather can have a major impact on the scripts of games.
Bo Nix (vs. Oregon State) — I appreciate the consistency of Nix this season, and, despite the tougher defence, he still feels like a very safe play this week against Oregon State, who are currently scrambling to keep their head coach, Jonathan Smith, from jumping ship. Nix's upside is always huge, and his consistency has been second to none this year. I’m not putting him at #1 because I think he’ll be the highest scorer this week, but rather, because I think he’s the best bet to get 25+ points.
Kaidon Salter (vs. UTEP) — Salter is coming off an absolute heater last week against UMass, where he scored 38 points. He has now tallied 35 or more points in four straight games, and I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be able to keep up his torrid pace against UTEP this week. In the RB article last week, I mentioned that I was concerned about Liberty RB Q. Cooley because Salter seems to be an absolute bandit in the red zone. Well, on the flip side, that’s a huge plus here. Love Salter again this week.
Chandler Rogers (vs. UAB) — I understand that #3 seems high for Rogers, especially considering the company he's ahead of. However, I think the ingredients are here for him to be very successful this week. UAB ranks 125th against opposing QBs this year, and they’ve been in a lot of shootouts. Rogers has also been consistently good this year, with season highs of 41, 36, and 34 points. I like his upside and his floor in this one.
