Top 5 Fantasy Football Quartebacks In 2015

rodgers

    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.

    Aaron Rodgers
    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.

    Andrew Luck
    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 Luck1 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.

    Peyton Manning
    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.

    Russell Wilson
    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.

    Drew Brees
    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.
