    Week 15 Quarterback Rankings – 2013 fantasy football playoff help

    Advertisement

    Congratulations to those of you that have advanced into the playoffs this far, and lets see what we can do about advancing you into the finals for week 16.   Please keep in mind, that one VERY important thing to consider come Sunday is the weather.  I had Stafford #1 in my rankings for week 14, but as soon as I saw the blizzard that was coming down in Philly, I pulled him from all my lineups which was my saving grace.

    For those of you who plan on asking start/sit advice, I should title this week’s article “start your studs”…. you’ll see why.

    Analysis

    Peyton Manning / Drew Brees

    Must starts.  Keep PFM and Drew Brees locked and loaded into your playoff lineups.

    Aaron Rodgers

    Rodgers is currently on track to start for week 15, and with the Packers still in the playoff hunt I am projecting him to be the starter this Sunday.  Obviously, fantasy owners will have to make a tough decision as the re-injury risk is always there, but he faces a Dallas defense that just made Josh McCown look like Joe Montana.

    Nick Foles

    Foles was actually able to weather the storm pretty well on Sunday, and bring in nearly 20 fantasy points for his owners.  Going against a weak Vikings secondary, Foles is a top 5 QB play for week 15.

    Philip Rivers

    Rivers has bounced in and out of the top 10 all season, but with the Broncos coming in I expect plenty of throwing in an uptempo game, and see Rivers as a top 10 QB play this week

      Stafford or rivers this week? I’m going against Rodgers

      • __KJ__

        Stafford is the higher upside play IMO in the pass happy offense that is Detroit. I expect Rivers to have a good performance as well, but with a lower ceiling than Stafford

      kaepernick or matt ryan ? please thanks

      • __KJ__

        Go with Matty Ice against the reeling Washington Redskins

    • __KJ__

      I’ll take Rivers in the shootout with Denver. Luck has been so up and down over the past month I don’t trust him here in the playoffs

      Alex smith or Russell Wilson?

      • __KJ__

        I like Wilson better and expect his legs to make the difference today
