Fantasy Football: Great Quarterback Starts for Week 15
Is your fantasy football team still alive and heading towards playoffs in Week 15? If so, here are some great fantasy football quarterbacks to start in Week 15. Or if you’re into the daily leagues such as FanDuel or Draft Kings, give these guys a thought.
Ben Roethlisberger, Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers
Roetlisberger is practically guaranteed to pile up a bunch of yards which means a bunch of fantasy points, against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15. In the last four weeks, the Falcons have allowed opposing quarterbacks an average of nearly 309 passing yards per game. Roethlisberger has been on a role with is yardage lately, and the Falcons’ soft pass attack won’t be any obstacle for Big Ben and crew.
How about more of this?
Ben Roethlisberger. Martavis Bryant. 94 yards. WOW! #PITvsCIN

Matt Ryan, Quarterback, Atlanta Falcons
Expect Ryan to dish it right back to Roethlisberger and the Steelers in Week 15. The Steelers in their last two games have allowed quarterbacks the second-most fantasy points and seven passing touchdowns, which is just plain bad. The caveat here for Ryan to go off big once again is if wide receiver Julio Jones plays in Week 15. Let’s monitor Jones’ hip injury and if he plays, it’s fantasy jackpot time.
Drew Brees, Quarterback, New Orleans Saints
Brees and team hit the road to play the Chicago Bears in Week 15 Monday Night Football. Forget how frightening Brees was last week and soak in a matchup against Chicago who just allowed Tony Romo to pass three touchdowns on them last week. Brees should rebound and reward a generous dose of points against the team who has allowed the most fantasy points in their last six games.
Philip Rivers, Quarterback, San Diego Chargers
Rivers and team will look to avenge their loss to the New England Patriots against the Denver Broncos’ rivals in Week 15. Averaging two touchdowns per game in his last six against Denver, has Rivers, playing at home facing a very friendly fantasy matchup this week. The Broncos defense isn’t fooling anyone when it comes to quarterbacks as it’s given up the sixth-highest fantasy points to the position this year. I’d trust Rivers over other QB’s facing more daunting opponents this week.
“@Chargers: Philip Rivers: "We're going to rebound, bounce back & play like crazy next week."”>>>Better be ready Broncos
