As the fantasy football playoffs for most leagues get underway, here are the top 10 fantasy quarterbacks for NFL Week 15:
Tom Brady. Brady's play since Thanksgiving has given the Patriots the No. 1 seed to lose, and almost sealed up Tom Brady's second MVP. Until Brady's numbers falter, he is the top fantasy option at quarterback.
Michael Vick. Against the Giants earlier in this season, Vick had a good fantasy day, accounting for 292 total yards and a touchdown. Although the Giants are tops in most defensive categories, Vick has had at least two touchdowns in each of his last three games, and his Eagles are on top on the NFC East.
Phillip Rivers. Rivers and Co. will kick off Week 15 on Thursday night, and as the Chargers are in a tight division race, they will bring the heat against a 49ers defense which ranks in the bottom third of the league.
Drew Brees. The Saints are returning to the explosive form that won them the Super Bowl last season. Last week the Ravens defense allowed almost 400 passing yards, which is good news for Brees owners.
Matt Schaub. Schaub had an excellent fantasy outing Monday night, throwing for 393 yards and three touchdowns. Going up against a Titans team that has been in a downward spiral for most of the second half (and ranks 26th in pass defense), look for Schaub to have success.
John Kitna. Going up against a terrible Redskins D puts Kitna in the Top 10 this week. Washington is 29th in the league in pass defense and as the Shanahan scrutiny continues, people in Washington seem to want the season to be over.
Aaron Rodgers. Although Rodgers was knocked out of last week's game against the Lions, if he plays this week, he should have success. Rodgers is going up against a young Pats secondary that ranks second-to-last in the NFL in passing.
Josh Freeman. The Bucs are still fighting for a wild card spot, and up against an average Lions defense. Freeman has put up better than average numbers all year; expect him to do the same this week.
