The SB Nation fantasy staff ranks the quarterbacks for Week 15.

Peyton Manning doesn't need to set any more records to make himself or his fantasy owners happy, but they wouldn't be opposed to a little more production as the fantasy playoffs get into full swing.

Manning's numbers have been pedestrian over the past four weeks, contributing seven touchdowns and four interceptions versus four challenging defenses. Despite that, SB Nation's fantasy staff maintains that there is plenty of upside to be had -- he isn't ranked any lower than third in Week 15's individual staff rankings. Owners can expect things to return to normal when the Denver Broncos face a San Diego Chargers team that surrendered three touchdowns and 8.17 yards per attempt to Manning in Week 8.

Elsewhere, excitement is abound with Johnny Manziel making his first NFL start this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. With Josh Gordon, Andrew Hawkins and a healthy Jordan Cameron in the huddle, Manziel will have plenty of outlets to put his playmaking ability to use. But as is the case with all rookies, expectations have to be tempered, and that's what the staff has done this week. Manziel's firmly in QB2 territory.

How did the other quarterbacks stack up in the rankings? Have a look below:
