Getting a top-tier quarterback in fantasy football is pretty important for most players. The very best can be counted on just about every single week, as they don’t have bad matchups like some of the others. They definitely come with a pretty high price tag, but here is a look at the top five to target in 2015.
The Green Bay Packers were able to talk Randall Cobb into staying in town, so that means Rodgers has a chance to pretty much play 2015 with his favor targets back. That is scary news for everyone else in the NFL. Rodgers will use Cobb and Jordy Nelson pretty frequently, but he will also look at his running back Eddie Lacy as well as other targets throughout the year. He is generally considered the best quarterback in the game right now, and his fantasy football numbers back that up.
Luck took a huge leap in 2014, as he officially entered the top tier of talent at the quarterback position. As we get ready for 2015, he could very well be even better. The Indianapolis Colts have done a very good job of rebuilding their team on the fly. They now have some of the best receivers in the NFL, and veteran Andre Johnson in particular is going to be huge for Luck in fantasy football. Eventually, Luck is the guy most likely to take over for Rodgers as the best quarterback in the NFL.
It is pretty obvious that Manning is starting to slow down at quarterback. However, it just goes to show how dominant he is when he is still considered a top five fantasy football quarterback at such an advanced age. The Denver Broncos have done whatever possible to make sure he has sufficient targets to throw the ball to. He might be one hit away from a major injury, but his numbers can’t be denied.
People don’t really view him as a top-tier quarterback yet, but he has a chance to be pretty good in 2015 as far as fantasy football is concerned. He is somebody who works very hard at his craft, and he has a new weapon in Jimmy Graham to utilize this season at the tight end position. He enters the top five for the first time in his career.
The man who just lost Jimmy Graham as a target still stays in the top five simply because he throws the ball so often. The New Orleans Saints are built around him, and he is going to get a chance to put up huge numbers. He is starting to get up there in age, but he is pretty significantly better in fantasy football compared to the like of Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and any other challenger for that No. 5 spot.

No pitcher has been better than Zack Greinke over the past month. Greinke extended his scoreless string to 35 2/3 innings by dominating the punchless Phillies. Granted, it was the stinking Phillies, but…

We were reading shit when we were back there 2 weeks ago why Dallas was a better fit for DeAndre Jordan than L.A. Seriously? Sometimes, that summertime heat can be brutal.

Stabler, known by many as “The Snake” (and a few other nicknames), passed Thursday from complications of colon cancer. He was 69. Stabler was a character on and off the field.
Bill Williamson delivers an appreciation.

Let’s hope the Warriors’ owners build the new arena in Oakland instead of San Francisco.

DeAndre Jordan is heading back to Texas, where he will become the starting center for the Dallas Mavericks. Plan B for the Clippers? Doesn’t look good.

Like we needed a reason to run a Kanye and Kim photo.
Though this 1 was taken in London (and a fav of ours for obvious reasons), Kanye and friends were hanging out at the Cantonese Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino after his performance Sunday at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

Sometimes, we’re the dumbest guys on the block. But even we had to question Vegas giving the Clippers 2 1/2 points after the colossal collapse in Game 6. Seriously, what are we missing here, we thought? Unfortunately, not a thing. Just as we predicted (we know, they took a different route, but…), its a Rockets-Warriors Western Conference Final, but everyone knew that, no?
My old lady keeps asking why I don’t bet these things. She really thinks I’m brilliant. I don’t have the heart to tell her. “Sweetie, if I bet it, it ain’t going to happen. Trust me.”

Silly us. We thought Dwight didn’t want to come back to L.A.
We were drooling of a Clippers-Warriors rematch in the Western Conference final. We weren’t the only ones either. Then a big hole sunk the Clippers’ ship in the 4th quarter, and you know the rest of the story. How does this happen with no James Harden in the final period? And since we’re dropping dimes, someone please give Stan Van Gundy a playoff share because he is the reason Josh Smith is in Houston.
“We kind of…you could tell we kind of got stunned, and we didn’t respond well,” Blake Griffin said.
No shit Sherlock?
The rest of the story.
