Below lists out each quarterback who played at least eight games and their categories list the number of games in which they had at least the stated topic. The consistency rating comes from the number of times where they scored at least 20 fantasy points using a standard scoring system of 1/20 pass yards and four point touchdowns. 20 points would be the same as 240 passing yards and two touchdowns. Rushing scores were six points and it was 1/10 rushing yardage.

The column for consistency shows how often a player scored at least 20 fantasy points.

The most notable aspect here is that those most consistent quarterbacks from 2015 were not the highly drafted players. It is a great indicator why drafting an early quarterback just doesn't offer the value that other positions have in those initial rounds. There were ten different quarterbacks with at least 73% of their games offering at least 20 points. And only Tom Brady was likely taken in the first three or four rounds in most of the drafts of last summer.
