NFL Fantasy Football 2015: Top 5 Quarterback Studs

With another year of experience under his belt, Luck should continue to improve. He led the league in passing touchdowns last season and added three more on the ground. He may be ready to take his spot as the NFL’s best quarterback, sooner rather than later.

2. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints

Last year, Brees came within 48 yards of eclipsing 5,000 passing yards in the forth consecutive season. He’s always near the top of the league for pass attempts, and 2015 doesn’t appear to be any different. Brees should continue to be an elite fantasy quarterback even if he is on a gradual decline.
3. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers

Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL, and his stats show it. He had only five interceptions last season, an astounding number to consider. He totaled 40 touchdowns last year and narrowly missed out on a Super Bowl appearance. The playoff disaster in 2014 should only help to fuel Rodgers’ performance this season.
4. Tom Brady – New England Patriots

Brady is always a lock for around 30+ touchdowns and 4200+ yards. With ‘Gronk’ healthy again, this season should be no different. The team is the defending World Champion, but that shouldn’t affect Brady’s resolve to be the best of all-time, not in the slightest.
5. Peyton Manning – Denver Broncos

Manning obviously started to decline, as a result of injury and general wear and tear towards the end of last season. However, in the end, he was still one of the NFL’s elite producers. Starting the 2015 season with a clean bill of health should mean a return to elite form and continued regular season greatness on his part.

Honorable Mentions:

Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburg Steelers

‘Big Ben’ had the best regular season of his career last season. He tied for the league lead in passing yards, and threw for 32 touchdowns. Don’t expect him to top those numbers, but the weapons surrounding him, within the Steelers offense, are the best he has ever had.

Philip Rivers – San Diego Chargers

Rivers has been a model of consistency for the Chargers since 2006. He hasn’t missed a game since becoming their starting QB and has produced at an elite level every season. Sometimes people overlook him, but it’s hard to question his elite status within the position.
Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons

Ryan may not be considered an elite quarterback, but his stats make a compelling argument. He’s had 4,500+ passing yards in each of the last three seasons, and 25+ touchdowns in each of the last five. He is still in the prime of his career, and should continue to play at a very high level in the years to come.
Eli Manning – New York Giants

Eli hasn’t missed a game since becoming a starter during his rookie season; it must run in the family. He bounced back from a bad 2013 campaign and had one of the best years of his career. With new star Odell Beckham, and a healthy Victor Cruz, Manning is virtually a lock for 4,000+ passing yards and 25+ touchdowns.
