Fantasy Football 2015 – ESPN Fun Facts You Need to Know

With the 2015 Fantasy Football season just around the corner, ESPN.com has released its listing of 100 Fantasy Football Facts. Gambling911.com has honed in on a few of these.

*Five quarterbacks posted double digit fantasy points in 15 games during the season.  None posted double digit fantasy points in all 16 games however. They were the obvious – Drew Bledsoe, Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck and Ben Rothlisberger – and the not-so-obvious – Ryan Tannehill. 

It goes without saying that these five starting QBs should be the first consideration for your roster each week, albeit four of them will come with hefty price tags.

*Stay away from Matthew Stafford.  In a six-year NFL career, Stafford has finished as a top-5 fantasy quarterback only once.

*In the past three years, no player in the NFL has more red zone touchdown catches than Jimmy Graham, who is now playing with the Seattle Seahawks.  He also had 85 receptions last season.  You will want to have him on your Daily Fantasy roster whenever possible.

*In five full games last season, Carson Palmer averaged 18.8 Fantasy points per game. 

* Since Chip Kelly took over in 2013, Eagles quarterbacks have combined to score 594 fantasy points (18.6 per game).

* Starting in Week 12, Teddy Bridgewater averaged 240 passing yards and 1.7 passing touchdowns per game.  During that span, his 94 fantasy points ranked 11th among quarterbacks, which is more than  Tom Brady’s, Peyton Manning’s, Philip Rivers’ or Matthew Stafford's.

* Adrian Peterson has scored double-digit touchdowns every season of his career that he has played more than one game.

*In each of the past two seasons, LeSean McCoy has totaled more than 300 carries.

*DeAngelo Williams, now with the Steelers, averaged 12 fantasy points per game and ranked 10th among running backs in fantasy points during that span.

* Last season, Jeremy Hill  averaged 5.1 yards per carry.  Since 2001, there have been only two rookie running backs that had as many carries as Hill (222) and averaged more yards per carry than Hill's 5.1 rate.
