Luck became the eighth quarterback in league history last season to throw at least 40 touchdown passes and broke Peyton Manning's single-season franchise records for passing yards (4,761) and 300-yard games (10). He also led the league in completions of 20- and 40-plus yards (73, 15, respectively) and was significantly more efficient with a 7.73 YPA (6.71 in 2013) and 6.5 touchdown percentage (4.0). That he continued to rank as one of the league's top signal-callers with only one true threat in the passing game (T.Y. Hilton) and a virtually non-existent ground attack speaks to his prowess as one of the game's most physically gifted quarterbacks. Luck accounted for 28.6 percent of the Colts' red-zone rushes last year (3rd among QBs) while carrying the team to the AFC championship game, but this year he should have more help thanks to the signings of Andre Johnson and Frank Gore. Both are aging, but Johnson gives Luck a dependable target who's bigger (6-3) and healthier than the chronically injured 6-0 Reggie Wayne, while Gore poses a ground threat Luck has never had. Gore also offers Luck reliable hands despite being phased out of the passing game in San Francisco the last few seasons. Furthermore, the Colts drafted speedster Phillip Dorsett in the first round, giving Luck a third receiver who can stretch the field alongside Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

2. Aaron Rodgers (GB)

Rodgers claimed his second MVP award last season, cementing his status as the league's best quarterback. His five interceptions were the fewest in NFL history with a minimum of 500 attempts, and his 7.60 TD/INT ratio towered over the next closest quarterback (Tony Romo, 3.78). Rodgers might be the most efficient passer in NFL history, considering his 8.22 career YPA, third all-time, comes on more attempts than the first two quarterbacks combined. He's achieved elite levels of production every year since becoming Green Bay's starter, despite averaging a modest 33.2 pass attempts per game (12th). Last year, he finished seventh in yards while ranking 14th in attempts, though playing with arguably the league's best receiver duo certainly helps. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both topped 90 receptions and 1,200 yards last season, combining for 25 touchdowns, most of any WR duo. This season, Davante Adams could get into the mix after showing promise as a rookie, and Eddie Lacy should again be a reliable target out of the backfield (10.2 YPC, 3rd among RBs). Rodgers doesn't run as much as he used to, but he's still good for a couple rushing scores per season. The only hesitation with Rodgers is durability -- after losing seven games in 2013 to a broken collarbone, he was hobbled down the stretch and into the playoffs last season by a calf injury. But that's quibbling.

3. Drew Brees (NO)

2015 Projections View Drew Brees's 2015 projected stats.

Brees topped 650 attempts and 4,900 yards for the fourth consecutive season last year, but his YPA dropped to a four-year low, as did his touchdown percentage, to 5.0 (averaged 6.5 from 2011-13). While some questioned the 36-year-old's arm strength, Brees attempted and completed virtually the same number of deep balls as in 2013. He struggled, though, in the 21-30-yard range, where his 27 attempts were his fewest in seven years. His YPA dropped by 4.57 in that range, and he threw five fewer touchdowns than the previous season. The cause in part was an injured Jimmy Graham, who played through a shoulder sprain suffered in Week 5. Often jammed at the line and unable to fight through double-teams, Graham saw a four-year low in targets, totaling 10 fewer receptions (3) of 25-plus yards than in 2013. Worse still for Brees, Graham, who accounted for 28.6 percent of Brees' touchdowns and 21.2 percent of his yards the last four seasons, was traded in March, as was wideout Kenny Stills, one of the league's most efficient receivers the last two years (11.7 YPT). The Saints did not replace either, instead expecting more from tight ends Ben Watson and Josh Hill and wideout Nick Toon, among others. Brees, though, will be helped by the return of promising playmaker Brandin Cooks, who missed the final six games of 2014 with an injury. The Saints did make one big addition in the form of C.J. Spiller, who could occupy the Darren Sproles-type role that was sorely missed last season. The only quarterback to finish in the top 5 in fantasy scoring each of the last nine years, Brees likely will keep his streak alive, but he could take a hit if the Saints' young receivers don't develop.
