As NFL Training Camps start to open one by one this week, our attentions will quickly turn to the 2015 Fantasy Football season.
By Griffin Gallagher
2015 NFL Training Camps are just around the corner, with most teams opening up at some point this week.
This means football is back in the air. More importantly though, it means that the 2015 Fantasy Football season is also coming. With many fantasy drafts close to starting, we’re going to rank the top players from each position.
Today we discuss the quarterback decision.
1. Aaron Rodgers, Packers
With the resigning of Randall Cobb, Aaron Rodgers will have all of his favorite weapons in place again this season. Behind one of the NFL’s best offensive lines, A-Rod should put up MVP numbers yet again.
2. Andrew Luck, Colts
The additions of Super Bowl hungry veterans Andre Johnson and Frank Gore will give Andrew Luck even more weapons heading into his fourth season. The young quarterback has put up arguably the best first three years in NFL history, and with an improved offensive line and more targets, Luck will be the AFC’s best quarterback for another year running.
3. Russell Wilson, Seahawks
Russell Wilson is the definition of defying the odds. The 5-11 quarterback has lead the Seahawks to two Super Bowls in his first three seasons throwing to mediocre receivers. With the offseason arrival of Jimmy Graham, Wilson will have a red zone target and Seattle will be able to rely less on the run game, as well as more on the passing game, giving Wilson more passing attempts and more touchdowns.
4. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers
Ben Roethlisberger has the weapons around him to be one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks this year. He will be throwing to the league’s best receiver Antonio Brown, and Martavis Bryant who showed a lot of potential last year turning in a rookie season of 549 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Running back Le’Veon Bell, who caught 83 receptions for 854 yards and 3 touchdowns last year will provide another receiving option for Big Ben, and his suspension for the first two games of the season will make the Steelers extremely reliant on the passing game.
