Top 5 Fantasy Quarterbacks for 2015

Wild Card Weekend, Aaron Rodgers, Fantasy Projections, Rankings

Finding the best possible quarterback in fantasy football 2015 can be a huge stress reliever. Instead of trying to make a decision every single week, these five are pretty much penciled in as consistent starters. They are the best of the best, and it is no shocker that they play for teams who are predicted to have success. Here is a closer look at the top five rankings for quarterbacks in fantasy football 2015.

Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers is an efficient, high-volume passer in perhaps the best overall offense in the NFL. He has two of the top 20 wide receivers on his team to throw the ball to, and he also has an outstanding running back to balance things out. Taking him as the #1 quarterback is close to a no-brainer. (2014 Standard Fantasy Points: 342, Rank: 1st)

Andrew Luck

In a year or two, these ratings could certainly be flipped. However, Luck isn’t quite the best quarterback in the NFL just yet. He will see improvement in fantasy football 2015 thanks to veteran Andre Johnson joining an already loaded receiving corps. (2014 Standard Fantasy Points: 336, Rank: 2nd)

Russell Wilson

The contract issues are now solved, as Wilson is about to get paid a lot of money to be the franchise quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. Not only will that give him confidence, but he also returns to a team with a new tight end target in Jimmy Graham. With Graham to throw the ball to in the red zone, things could become very interesting for the two-time defending NFC champions. (2014 Standard Fantasy Points: 312, Rank: 3rd)

Peyton Manning

This is pretty low for Peyton Manning, but that is the reality for him in fantasy football 2015. He is still in the top-tier of quarterbacks, but the arm strength is going downhill. Losing Julius Thomas hurts a lot too. Denver will still throw a lot though, so he’ll put up points. (2014 Standard Fantasy Points: 307, Rank: 4th)

Drew Brees

No Jimmy Graham hurts, but Brees is still in a passing offense built for him. New Orleans will be hoping that he can cut down on his 17 interceptions from a year ago. He is also getting older like Manning, but playing in a dome always neutralizes his performances on a weekly basis. (2014 Standard Fantasy Points: 290, Rank: 6th)
