Fantasy Fox: QB-starter rankings for NFL Week 15

BY foxsports • December 11, 2014

Here are my Week 15 QB rankings for standard-scoring leagues that reward four points per touchdown pass:

This countdown doesn't lean on a particular stat. It's merely an educated early guess of which signal- callers, 1 through 32, will have the best combination of total yards (passing/rushing) and total touchdowns for the NFL's 15th weekend.

Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn't supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:

1. Always play your healthy superstars.

2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru's analysis (read: plausible deniability).
