1. Drew Brees- He had a 70.6 percent completion rate. He threw for 4,388 yards with 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He averaged throwing 292.5 yards per game. His longest pass was for a 75 yard touch pass and his passer rating was 109.6 He is surrounded by great talent in receivers, running backs, offensive linemen, and a solid defense. It will be hard for him to repeat the same type of numbers as last year, but I still expect him to have a good year.

2. Aaron Rodgers- He had a 64.7 percent completion rating. He threw for 4,434 yards with 30 touchdowns and only throwing 7 interceptions. That stat alone is simply amazing.
He averaged throwing 277.1 yards per game. His longest pass was for an 83 yard touchdown pass and his passer rating was 103.2. Another stat that stands alone are that he was sacked a league high 50 times. That is something that the packers must address this offseason through the draft or free agency. Most people thought that the glory days of the packers were gone once Farve was out the door. This guy has talent and could take them to the next level.

3. Philip Rivers- He had a 65.2 percent completion rating. He threw for 4,254 with 28 touchdowns with 9 interceptions. That is an impressive stat. This guy was on my championship fantasy team. He did not WOW you with huge days, but he usually hit his average. Another great thing was that he did not turn the ball over that much. He averaged throwing 265.9 yards per game. His longest pass was for an 81 yard touchdown and his passer rating was 104.4. With the departure of the great LT, the chargers will probably turn to rivers throwing the ball more. He is a great pick. He was only sacked 25 times, which speaks volumes for his offensive line.

4. Peyton Manning- What can you say about this guy? I can only say good things about him, and I really don’t like him due to the fact that he went to the University of Tennessee. This year he did not have Marvin Harrison, the best dependable weapon he has had for most of his career. He had a 68.8 percent completion rate. He threw for 4,500 yards with 33 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He averaged throwing 281.2 yards per game. His longest pass was for an 80 yard touchdown pass and his passer rating was 99.9. Not a bad off year for him. His most dependable weapon was Reggie Wayne and he received most of the double teams. This opened up holes for Dallas Clark. Austin Collie was productive along with Pierre Garcon. I have made the bold prediction that Austin Collie could become the next Wes Welker. He put up solid Numbers while he experienced a below average year. His offensive line makes him a great Quarterback. They only gave up 10 sacks all year. That is amazing! This guy is one of the smartest Quarterbacks of all time and he is surrounded by a wall of an offensive line that gives him more than enough time to pick apart defenses. He has the ability to make everyone around him better. You could not draft a Quarterback with better chances of success.

5.Matt Shaub- This guy could make or break you in fantasy football. He had a 67.9 percent completion rate. He threw for 4,770 yards with 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He has the best target in the league in Andre Johnson. He also has a talented tight end in Owen Daniels. His offensive line only gave up 25 sacks too. If the Texans are able to get their running game up to par, it would increase his chances of becoming a good Quarterback. He could use another weapon in a receiver or in a talented running back, which they have in Steve Slaton. If the Texans can clear up these issues, he could be an effective Quarterback.

Quarterbacks that didn’t make the list
Tony room- Solid season, but he is much like the cowboys, inconsistent at best.
Tom Brady- Brady may have lost some of his magic. One of his biggest targets in Randy Moss has seemed to have lost a little. He could become very dependable again if Moss rededicates himself to his game.
Brett Farve – Had arguably the best year of his career, but we once again go into an offseason where he waffles back and forth about playing just one more year.
Joe Flacco- This guy has the talent around him to be a very good Quarterback. If the Ravens can give him more weapons at receiver, he could easily be a top 10 Quarterback in fantasy football. He has an outstanding offensive line and a great running back in Ray Rice.

if you are not dominating your fantasy football league, it is obvious; you need to get into the end zone. Fantasyendzone.com
