Andrew Luck is the leading fantasy scorer and he leads off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 15, but it’s the signal-callers from the NFC South that have our attention. Matt Ryan tossed four touchdowns and posted a season-best 39.3 fantasy points on Monday night against Green Bay and could be in for another big game Sunday when Atlanta hosts Pittsburgh. As impressive as Ryan’s outing was, it wasn’t the top-scoring effort among QBs. That honor goes to Cam Newton, who accounted for four touchdowns (3 rush, 1 pass) in the Panthers’ 41-10 rout of the Saints. Newton would have been a top-10 option this week, but he sustained two fractures in his lower back in a car accident on Tuesday. Head coach Ron Rivera announced on Wednesday that Derek Anderson would start in Newton's place against Tampa Bay on Sunday. And speaking of the Saints, Drew Brees and company look to rebound Monday night in Chicago when they go up against the NFL’s most generous defense. New Orleans hasn’t been much better defensively, so this should be a nice matchup for Jay Cutler too.
