Which QB's should you target on waivers?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:52 pm ET) With just two teams on bye and few teams dealing with serious injuries at the position, there aren't many needs to fill at quarterback this week. Still, Jamey Eisenberg's Week 5 Waiver-Wire column highlights a handful of names you might want to target before waivers run Wednesday morning.

Giants QB Eli Manning headlines the list of add-worthy quarterbacks, after he lit up Washington for five touchdowns last week. He was featured on the waiver-wire column last week as well. Carson Palmer (shoulder) of the Cardinals is also on the list, as is Joe Flacco of the Ravens, Alex Smith of the Chiefs, Blake Bortles of the Jaguars and Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) of the Vikings to round out the top-5.

Kirk Cousins, Jake Locker and Geno Smith are mentioned as potentially droppable options, if you need a roster spot.

Eli Manning getting rid of the ball very fast
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:08 pm ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is averaging 2.27 seconds from the snap to his release, a substantial drop from last year's average of 2.73 seconds, reports The Star-Ledger. In fact, only his brother, Denver's Peyton Manning, is releasing the ball quicker (2.12 seconds) this season.

Manning averaged 1.7 seconds from snap to release on his four touchdown passes last Thursday against the Redskins.

"I thought we did a good job of getting the ball out fast," Manning told the paper. "I thought we had a plan, I thought I had a good plan for most of the plays and where I wanted to go with the ball, getting through my progressions.

"There's still some improvement, still some things to get better on, some things with footwork and whatnot, but definitely made strides and have to keep trying to get better each and every week," he added.
