Fantasy Fox: Top 30 quarterbacks for NFL Week 12

BY foxsports • November 19, 2014

Here are my Week 12 QB rankings for standard-scoring leagues that reward four points per touchdown pass:

This countdown doesn't lean on a particular stat. It's merely an educated early guess of which signal-callers, 1 through 30, will have the best combination of total yards (passing/rushing) and total touchdowns for the NFL's 12th weekend.

Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn't supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:

1. Always play your healthy superstars.
2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru's analysis (read: plausible deniability).


BYES: Carolina, Pittsburgh
