Andrew Luck white jersey
.
Football season is rapidly approaching. This is the first look at the Lester’s Legends 2015 quarterback rankings.
.
1. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts
The guard has changed. Andrew Luck led the NFL with 40 passing touchdowns in 2014. He also threw for 4,761 yards while adding 273 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. The Indianapolis Colts added Andre Johnson to give Luck another weapon.
.
2. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers continues to put up big numbers. In 2014 He threw for 4,381 yards and 38 touchdowns with only five interceptions. Rodgers ran for 269 yards and a pair of scores.
.
3. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos
Peyton Manning should continue to deliver during the regular season. He’ll miss Julius Thomas, but look for Peyton to make somebody else a star. Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Owen Daniels figure to keep Manning rolling.
.
4. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson should take a step forward thanks to the arrival of Jimmy Graham. In 2014 Wilson threw for 3,475 yards and 20 touchdowns while adding 849 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.
.
5. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
Meanwhile, Drew Brees will dearly miss Jimmy Graham. Brees fell 48 yards shy of a fourth straight 5,000 yard season in 2014. He added 33 touchdown passes. Like Peyton, Brees will just make new stars.
.
6. Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton was banged up for much of the 2014 season, but finished with 3,127 yards and 18 touchdowns with another 539 yards and five scores on the ground. He missed two games and was limited in several more. The Panthers have added Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess the past two seasons to give Cam additional weapons. Greg Olsen remains a high-end tight end option as well.
.
7. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers
Ben Roethlisberger threw for 4,952 yards and 32 touchdowns in 2014. Big Ben has averaged 28.7 touchdowns over the past three seasons. With a young receiving corps, look for Roethlisberger to turn in another fine season.
.
8. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan threw for 4,694 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2014. Over the past three seasons he has averaged 4,642.7 yards and 28.7 touchdowns.
.
9. Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
In 2014 Tony Romo threw for 3,705 yards and 34 touchdowns. The loss of DeMarco Murray should put more of the load on Romo’s shoulders.
.
10. Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Tom Brady will miss the first four games of the season pending his appeal. Fantasy owners are more interested in what happens at the end of the season. Brady threw for 4,109 yards and 33 touchdowns last year. During Weeks 6-15 Brady averaged 307.1 yards and 2.9 touchdowns per game.
