Fantasy Football Power Rankings: Quarterbacks 1-5

87. <strong><a href=. QB. Carolina Panthers. Cam Newton. 5. player

4. player. 45. In the first 11 games of the 2014 season, Peyton Manning averaged a solid 23.96 fantasy points per game, (323.45 YPG, 34 TDs and nine INTs). In the final five games of the season, he averaged 9.83 FPPG (233.8 YPG, five TDs and six INTs) and never scored more than 13.02 fantasy points in any of those games. The culprit? Injuries and age. Manning is no spring chicken. With a finish to the year, Manning ended up as the QB4 (312.68 fantasy points) behind Rodgers (354.14), Luck (350.74) and Wilson (327.6), and that’s where I have him entering 2015 as well.<span style=.

36. Yes, <strong><a href=. QB. . Russell Wilson. 3. player

1. player. 49. For me personally, there was no question that the reining league MVP and last seasons top-scoring fantasy quarterback deserved to be at the top of our countdown. Furthermore, Rodgers has finished as a top two fantasy quarterback in six of his last seven seasons since taking over as the starter post-Favre in Green Bay. (The lone season outside of the top two was due to an injury.) Over the past four seasons, Rodgers has compiled a combined 139:25 TD-to-INT ratio with an average of 8.5 yards per attempt, 112.6 passer rating and 67.0 completion percentage. With the way fantasy football is being played now a days, don’t be surprised to see Rodgers go in round one of a lot of drafts. He’s a stud signal caller amongst stud signal callers, and is unlikely to disappoint any fantasy owners that decide to draft him.. QB. Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers
