Rodgers

fantasy qbs 081912 560x280The NFL’s 2015 Off-season was crazier than a sack of rabid weasels being unleashed in a private screening of the new Star Wars movie at George Lucas’s ranch. The results of this insanity could cause a shift in the 2015 Fantasy football season. A normal off-season usually has three or four big free agent signings combined with a trade or two that leaves us scratching our heads. However, 2015 had enough trades, signings, and downright WTF moments to cover us for the next five seasons.

From the rookie Quarterbacks entering their second season to the new guys heading to bigger and brighter futures in new cities, we have it all for you to prepare for the upcoming season. So when you are thinking about what to do in 2015, maybe, just maybe, you should stop whining about the bad choices of the past and use this cheat sheet to win your league. Let’s get this started with our Top 25 favorite quarterbacks for the upcoming fantasy football season.

(Scoring format used: 1 Point per 25 Passing Yards, 4 Points per Passing TD, 1 Point per 10 Rushing Yards, -2 Points per Interception, -2 Points per Fumble Lost)

1. Andrew Luck, Colts : 367 Pts

The Luck has finally started to become the leader of the pack. 2015 is beginning to line up pretty sweet for a Super Bowl run too. If Luck can produce at the same rate, or slightly better, than he is without a doubt the best fantasy football QB option available today.

2015 Projected Stats

  • Passing Yards: 4,800
  • Passing TDs: 37
  • INTs: 8
  • Rushing Yards: 250
  • Rushing TDs: 4
  • Fumbles Lost: 3

2. Aaron Rodgers, Packers : 352 Pts

With a full 16 games, Aaron Rodgers, over three of the past four seasons, throws for a higher percentage than anyone else in the NFL. On top of that, he throws plenty of TD’s and not that many Int’s. This guy is elite and worth a first round selection. Especially now that he has more talented WR’s than the Pro Bowl.

2015 Projected Stats

  • Passing Yards: 4,600
  • Passing TDs: 38
  • INTs: 6
  • Rushing Yards: 200
  • Rushing TDs: 2
  • Fumbles Lost: 2

3. Drew Brees, Saints : 340.5 Pts

Consistency equals longevity in the NFL. Drew Brees has this quality and has transformed the New Orleans Saints into a Super Bowl contender year after year.

2015 Projected Stats

  • Passing Yards: 5,100
  • Passing TDs: 39
  • INTs: 12
  • Rushing Yards: 25

5. Peyton Manning, Broncos : 318.4 Pts

Retire! Peyton Manning has always been the smartest player on the football field but even he has not realized that he needs to ride off into the sunset before it is too late. His numbers are still top five mainly because he is that top of QB but do not expect these numbers. This is on the high end.

2015 Projected Stats

  • Passing Yards: 4,800
  • Passing TDs: 37
  • INTs: 12
  • Rushing Yards: 25
  • Rushing TDs: 0
  • Fumbles Lost: 0

6. Tom Brady, Patriots : 224 Pts

Joe Montana was once the greatest postseason QB of all-time. But then Tom Brady won four Super Bowls. Now, well, the debate can begin. Meanwhile, he will win another, and maybe two more before it is all said and done. His overall stats this year will be limited by his 4 game suspension, but his points per game played will still rank him in the top ten.

2015 Projected Stats

  • Passing Yards: 3,100
  • Passing TDs: 28
  • INTs: 6
  • Rushing Yards: 40
  • Rushing TDs: 0
