Fantasy Football Week 12 Quarterback Rankings

1. Peyton Manning (IND) – In his last 3 games, Manning has thrown 7 TD passes and 0 interceptions while averaging 271 passing yards per game. He is officially back on track and a must start fantasy option in week 12 against a San Diego pass defense that currently ranks dead last in the NFL. Manning should have an exceptional performance with this match up.

2. Aaron Rodgers (GB) – He hasn’t been as consistent in recent weeks as he was to start the season, but you have to love his chances for a big game against New Orleans. The Saints currently rank 26th in the NFL in pass defense and have allowed 16 passing TD’s in 10 games. In addition, they have allowed the second most pass plays over 20 yards in the NFL. Rodgers should be able to dominate this secondary with his big play receivers in week 12.

3. Jay Cutler (DEN) – The last time Cutler faced Oakland was in week 1 of this season. In that game, he threw for 300 yards, 2 TD’s, and 0 interceptions. We see no reason why Cutler shouldn’t carve up the mediocre Raiders pass defense again in week 12 at home.

4. Kurt Warner (ARI) – There is no question that Warner will have his hands full this week against the Giants 2nd ranked pass defense, but it is also fair to say that the Giants secondary will be in the same boat against this potent passing attack. The Cardinals receiving corps is second to none and by far the best the Giants have faced all season. Warner is simply on fire and a must start in spite of the tough week 12 match up.

5. Tony Romo (DAL) – He was obviously a bit rusty in week 11, but he was also facing a very good Washington pass defense. That will not be the case in week 12 when Romo will match up against the 25th ranked pass defense of San Francisco at home. The 49ers give up 235 passing yards per game and have allowed 15 TD’s through the air in just 10 games. Romo should fare much better this week with this match up. Check injury report: finger
