Super Bowl XLVIII Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings

Super Bowl XLVIII Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings

Jan 28, 2014

.
Super Bowl XLVIII pits the old guard against the new guard when it comes to the quarterback matchup.
.
Peyton Manning came into the league in what seems to be a lifetime ago with all the expectations in the world. He has delivered on that promise over the years, including leading the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl XLI victory.
.
Peyton has had plenty of success with the Denver Broncos, including setting NFL records with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns. He is basically an offensive coordinator on the field. He always seems to be a step ahead of the defense. Even the raised stakes of the playoffs hasn’t slowed him as he has averaged 315 yards and a pair of touchdowns in wins over the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots.
.
Seattle can get pressure up front and have a talented secondary. I don’t see Peyton having a monster day, but I just can’t go against Peyton in this historic year.
.
Meanwhile, Russell Wilson is the new breed of quarterback that can do damage with his arm and his feet. Wilson was a third round pick that was a bit of a surprise last year as he won the starting job over Matt Flynn.
.
Wilson averaged 209.8 passing yards, 1.6 passing touchdowns and 33.7 rushing yards. He hasn’t been asked to much in two playoff wins as he has averaged just 159 passing yards, 0.5 passing touchdowns and eight rushing yards. Seattle has relied on its defense and a strong rushing attack featuring Marshawn Lynch.
.
Against Denver things are likely to change. The Broncos are going to put points on the boards. As good as Seattle is on defense, I can’t see them shutting down Denver’s high-powered offense. Wilson is going to have to put the Seahawks on his back and make plays with his arm.
.
Denver allowed 254.4 passing yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game during the regular season.
.
While I think Peyton has the better day, I do think Wilson will put up decent numbers as well.
