Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 12

Aaron Rodgers continues to lead the pack in Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 12, while a couple of elite signal-callers look to bounce back from disappointing showings. Rodgers led the Packers to their second straight 50-point effort last week and he now has thrown nine touchdown passes and no interceptions in the past two games. Meanwhile, neither Peyton Manning nor Drew Brees enjoyed quite as much success, with the duo combining for just two touchdowns, two picks and two losses last week. Manning has some banged-up playmakers, but he will try and get back on track at home against Miami, while Brees and the Saints look to do the same on Monday night against Baltimore. Elsewhere, Andrew Luck should post good numbers against the Jaguars, while Tom Brady and the Patriots host the Lions and the NFL’s No. 1 defense.

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.
