The QB position was so up and down the entire season, outside of the one and only Peyton Manning. There was more proof of that this fantasy football playoffs when Josh McCown and Ryan Fitzpatrick took home #1 rankings during weeks 14 and 15 respectively. But Peyton took home the honors when it mattered most, during championship weekend. Andy Dalton was the only QB besides Manning to rank in the top 5 twice, finishing 5th and 2nd in weeks 14 and 16.
Peyton tossed 10 touchdowns over the 3 week playoffs, passing for 1086 yards and completing 98 passes. Let's not forget Wes Welker did not play in those last 2 contests!
To many surprise, Andy Dalton finished second, ahead of Drew Brees and Nick Foles. Dalton was actually one of the best QBs all season long, but this playoff season he completed 76 passes for 871 yards and 9 TDs. Brees' 99 completions was most amongst QBs but those 987 yards only resulted in 6 TDs. Foles completed even less passes than Dalton (62) but he was able to add a rushing TD on top of his 6 passing TDs.
Then we come to Andrew Luck, who before the playoffs had not thrown for multiple TDs since a November 3rd game against the Houston Texans in Week 8! Luck ended up tossing 7 scores, 4 in Week 14, completing 74 passes for 747 yards.
The list wraps up with likes of Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, Matt Flynn, Chad Henne, Colin Kaepernick, Philip Rivers and Cam Newton. Lots of high profile QBs who sometimes barely managed to be a top 25 QB during the playoffs.
