Top 5 Fantasy Quarterbacks 2015
Tony Romo: Tony Romo has been a fantasy gift for everyone who waits to draft a quarterback. Romo has the highest QBR of any quarterback in the NFL in 2014 and is a multiple record holder for the Cowboys. The one knock on Romo has been his lack of championships however that is more of a knock on the team as a whole. Romo has led the Cowboys every season with mind bending plays, clutch touchdowns, and he is also the only quarterback to get away from JJ Watt in recent memory. Now he heads into 2015 with his full lineup of receivers, most notably Dez Bryant, and is looking for a Super Bowl. Expect Romo to throw the ball a lot more without DeMarco and a full offseason of working with his wide receivers will pay off big time, that is, if he manages to stay healthy.
Total Fantasy Points in 2014: 266.30
Quarterback rating in 2014: 129.1
Total yards in 2014: 3,705
Total touchdowns in 2014: 34
Aaron Rodgers: Aaron Rodgers has been the best fantasy football quarterback for quite some time now, the only player arguably better is Tony Romo and that's just because of where you can draft him. Rodgers is first round talent all the way with every intangible a fantasy owner could want. The Packers offensive attack is now split evenly for both passing and rushing thanks to Eddie Lacy however this is incredibly good for Rodgers. Now Rodgers can use just about every pass in his arsenal including play action to extreme effectiveness. Look for Rodgers to finish around the top of the pack in 2015.

Andrew Luck: Andrew Luck had a monster season in 2014. The only quarterback to have more fantasy points than Luck was Aaron Rodgers which says a tremendous amount about Luck's potential this season. Luck also has an Aaron Rodgers caliber receiving core around him now that the Colts went out and got free agent Andre Johnson and drafted Phillip Dorsett.

Russell Wilson: Russell Wilson is one of the most interesting quarterbacks in the NFL. He is one of the top scoring fantasy quarterbacks of the last two seasons. He makes up for his lack of passing yards with his legs rushing for more yards and touchdowns than your typical quarterback.

Total yards in 2014: 3,475

Ben Roethlisberger: Big Ben has lost some targets over the years, (Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders) but has always produced. Now it appears that Big Ben finally reached a new level of greatness with the help of Antonio Brown. Brown however is not the only Steelers wide receiver looking to make some noise this upcoming season, expect Martavis Bryant to really assert himself as Ben's second target.
