Poll: Which QB will score more fantasy points in 2015 - Aaron Rodgers or Andrew Luck?

In any fantasy football (mock) draft this season, the first quarterback to be selected will almost always be either Aaron Rodgers or Andrew Luck.

Based on ADP data from Fantasy Football Calculator, Luck (2.04) and Rodgers (2.07) are both second-round picks, on average, and then the next three quarterbacks are being selected in the fourth or fifth round: Peyton Manning (4.01), Russell Wilson (4.10) and Drew Brees (5.05).

Based on my 2015 Fantasy Football Rankings, I have Rodgers ranked (slightly) ahead of Luck.

Here's what I wrote in my fantasy rankings on the two quarterbacks:

Rodgers: The reigning NFL Most Valuable Player, Rodgers was also the top-scoring fantasy quarterback as well. Since becoming Green Bay's starting quarterback seven years ago, Rodgers has finished as a top-two fantasy quarterback in six of seven seasons with the lone exception due to injury (broken clavicle, 2013). Over the past four seasons, Rodgers has compiled a combined 139:25 TD-to-INT ratio with an average of 8.5 yards per attempt, 112.6 passer rating and 67.0 completion percentage.

Luck: Throwing for 4,761 yards and a league-leading 40 touchdowns, both of which were career highs, Luck's 40 TDs last season nearly equalled his total from his first two seasons combined (46 TDs). During the season, Luck had the second-longest streak of 300-yard games (eight) in NFL history. Like with Rodgers, Luck gets a boost from his mobility and he has rushed 62-64 times in all three seasons with at least 255 yards each year and a total of 12 touchdowns.

Both signal-callers have talented players around them -- Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Eddie Lacy in Green Bay and T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener in Indianapolis, among others.

Both are tremendous options, but which of these two stud QBs will score more fantasy points in 2015?
