QB Rankings Week 15 (updated Saturday)

Greetings, my fellow semifinalists, and welcome to the Week 15 Quarterback Rankings!

Yes, it’s a big week for all of us who are fortunate enough to still be playing. I wish I could say that these rankings would lead to total clarity, but the the truth is that it’s a tough week for ranking the quarterbacks. 

Vegas doesn’t see a lot of offense this week and I tend to agree. Even the two highest scoring teams on the 16-game slate are not in great spots. The Chiefs go tonight and have an implied total of 28.5, but they face a tough defense and are still figuring out life without Kareem Hunt. They’ll also be missing Spencer Ware, who we’ll chat about in the RB Rankings, and Sammy Watkins. The Saints will be on the road and outdoors—two negative factors for Drew Brees and they are the second highest team in terms of implied point totals.  Big Ben looks really good on paper this week, but he hasn’t even practiced yet due to injured ribs. This presents enhanced knock-out risk, but he’s still one of the best plays this week.

Vegas has seven teams under 20 points this week and no teams over 30.  So don’t get worried sick about your mediocre quarterback matchup.  Very few people have strong ones this week and nobody has a lights out start.  They simply do not exist this week from a projection standpoint.  So take a good cold sober look at your matchup and play the quarterback option that suits you best.  I have ‘em ranked for you, but there is not much separation between the guys in the 10-12 range and the guys in the low teens.  Jameis Winston is at 19 overall and he’s a solid option.

I will update all of the Rotobahn rankings before the start of Saturday’s games. I will be going over every scrap of relevant information between now and Saturday afternoon, so make sure you check out the update.

I’ll be back later this afternoon with the receivers, running back and tight ends.

Good luck to all this week!
