Fantasy Quarterback Sleepers For 2015

Posted on Aug 12 2015 - 5:16pm by Chase Irle

Ryan Tannehill– Tannehill is fresh off a season in which he threw for over 4,000 yards and 27 TDs. He has proven over the last few seasons that he is more than capable of handling the job under center in the NFL. He finished #9 in fantasy scoring last season, but very few people seem to be talking about Tannehill as a QB1 this season. He has steadily improved each year and will continue to so this season, expect him to finish in the top 10 in fantasy quarterback scoring again this year. He will not be a top 5 option, but he is a better option to draft then guys like Tony Romo, Cam Newton, and Phillip Rivers.

Matt Stafford– Stafford has been a big disappointment since inking his $53 million dollar contract extension in the 2013 offseason. He has seemingly regressed for the Lions and finished 15th among fantasy quarterbacks in 2014. However, Stafford is a proven commodity in the NFL and has an unbelievable amount of talent. With a healthy Calvin Johnson returning to the Lions lineup, Stafford should be able to put together a top 10 quarterback season in 2015 despite going undrafted in many 10-team leagues.

Sam Bradford– Bradford was rarely able to stay on the field for the Rams, but he begins his career in Philadelphia this season. Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense is made for players to rack up stats, and in turn rack up the fantasy points. Mark Sanchez was a mess with the New York Jets, but was a serviceable fantasy quarterback when starting for the Eagles last season. Bradford is a much better quarterback than Sanchez, so if he can stay healthy with the Eagles, he could be a deep sleeper in a loaded quarterback league.
