Week 12 Fantasy Football Rankings — Quarterbacks

<p> 2012 Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings: Week 12</p>

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
