The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 15 QBs

December 11, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

Here are this week’s fantasy quarterback ratings, better late than never. It’s a rough week for quarterbacks this week, as most of the perennial powers have difficult match ups to contend with. The playoffs are here, so for those who still have something left to play for, every lineup decision is an important one.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 15. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 15 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 15 lineup decisions.
