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.

A survey by Forbes lists Michael Vick as the most “disliked” NFL player. Doggone. And is any coincidence that 3 of the top 10 are former USC players? Didn’t think so.

Though the documentary is excellent and must-viewing, ESPN’s curious decision to pull out of it raised some eyebrows and increased its visibility.

The violent hits continue on a weekly basis in the NFL. As Chargers’ wide receiver Malcom Floyd said to a group of reporters Monday, “It’s part of the game.”
Unfortunately, it is. Football is a game of violence. Still, hits like the 1 Washington’s Brandon Meriweather delivered on Green Bay’s James Starks shouldn’t be tolerated. Anytime a player launches himself into another 1 helmet 1st he should pay for the repercussions, whether by suspension or a big hit to his wallet. For Meriweather and his stupidity, the blow cost him with his own concussion and he will be out for Week 3.
Writers Erik Brady and Gary Mihoces deliver a thoughtful piece. I make some very small contributions with a few quotes from Floyd.

The late great Ralph Wiley, smoking weed, the continuing hypocrisy of the NCAA and Johnny “Football” all in the same column. Mix in some double standards when it comes black and white athletes? Wonderful.
We don’t agree with everything Jason Whitlock says but in this case he hits this 1 out of the park.

Wouldn’t we exactly call him a Po Boy, but…
Rex Ryan, who has shed more than 100 pounds, was voted this week as the most overrated coach in the NFL. Another fat man of note, Andy Reid, finished 3rd. Bill Belichick was sandwiched between the pair.

Is that you Barry?
It’s been only 5 years since my daughter had to explain to me what 420 meant. “Seriously Dad? You don’t know?” I can still hearing her saying.
Lots of athletes will be celebrating today. We hate to bust anyone, but 1 of our favorite stories is a bud of ours sitting in a Mercedes and smoking a fatty back in the day with Chili Davis.
We’ll just indulge in a glass or 2 of wine to celebrate.
