Fantasy Football Week 12 Quarterback Rankings

Fantasy Football Week 12 Quarterback Rankings

The 2021-22 NFL season is past its halfway point. Bye weeks have been taking place the past few weeks. This means that quarterbacks like Kyler Murray and Patrick Mahomes will be out this week. On top of that injuries have started to mount up at this point of the season. It is always a great idea to evaluate backup options so that way fantasy managers are prepared if star players miss time. Here are the Fantasy Football Week 12 quarterback rankings.

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Must Start- a player who should definitely be in your lineup that week because of the combination of matchup and talent. They will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and could repeat the production most weeks.
Starter- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a high floor.
Low-End Starter- a player who should be started in most lineups but can possibly bottom out and finish below average on a given week. A high ceiling play in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Streamer- a player who could be a perfect replacement for a starter for a week or two. Starting this player may not win you your lineup but they will make sure that your production out of that position will not lose you your matchup either. Also a viable option in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Deep League Streamer- a player who could fill a void at a position in a deeper league. Their ceiling may be close to average point production at the position but their floor is enough to get through the week. A reasonable player to have in your lineup in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday

QB1 Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson missed last week’s game with an illness. The initial report is that is he feeling better and that he can hopefully play this weekend against the Cleveland Browns. But if Jackson is out then Tyler Huntley joins the list at QB24 between Teddy Bridgewater and Ben Roethlisberger.

QB26 Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield is dealing with knee, foot, and shoulder injuries. If Mayfield was to miss this game against the Baltimore Ravens then Case Keenum would slot in at QB24 between Matt Ryan and Teddy Bridgewater.

QB28 Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

Jared Goff suffered an oblique injury that held him out of Detroit’s game last week against the Cleveland Browns. Goff is expected to play Thursday against the Chicago Bears. But if Goff is out then Tim Boyle will slot in at QB30 between Trevor Siemian and Taysom Hill
