Week 12 Top 10 Quarterbacks

Week 12 QB's
Peyton Manning (IND @ SD)- Peyton has been on fire lately and look for that to continue this week against the leagues worst passing defense (Chargers). He's thrown 7 TD's and zero interceptions in the last three weeks and is an absolute must start in Week 12.

Kurt Warner (ARZ vs. NYG)- Warner threw for 300+ yards for the fourth straight game this past week and remains one of the elite fantasy QB's this year. He may not reach the 300 yard mark this week against the Giants tough defense, but should still put up respectable numbers.

Jay Cutler (DEN vs. OAK)- Cutler didn't put up huge numbers last week, but still had a solid fantasy performance as he went 19-27 for 216 yards along w/ a TD. He has a favorable match up and should be closer to 300 yards this week.

Tony Romo (DAL vs. SF)- Romo was average in his return to the Dallas lineup, throwing for 198 yards and TD. The splint on his pinkie could have had an impact as he threw two picks which is something fantasy owners need to keep an eye on. With that said, Romo should fair much better at home in week 12 against the 49ers defense.

Drew Brees (NO vs. GB)- Brees didn't have his usual 300+ yard game in week 11 as he "only" threw for 266 yards and a TD against the Chiefs. This shouldn't be a major concern for fantasy owners as Brees will still put up yardage when he's not having his best day.

Tyler Thigpen (KC vs. BUF)- Thigpen threw two more touchdowns in week 11 to increase his total to 8 in his last four games (only 1 interception in that stretch). He really has become a good option to start as he's consistently throwing touchdowns and keeping his turnovers at a minimum.

Matt Cassel (NE @ MIA)- Cassel emerged with a breakout game last week in the overtime loss to the Jets. Cassel appears to have taken command of the Patriots offense, as he got it done in the air (400 yards, 3 TD's) and on the ground (62 yards). Do not expect another performance like that out of Cassel, but he looks to be a a viable fantasy option in week 12.

Aaron Rodgers (GB @ NO)- Rodgers has been inconsistent at times this year, however remains a good option when the matchup is right. The Saints have a below average pass defense that could mean big things for first year starter.

Ben Roethisberger (PIT vs. CIN)- Big Ben hasn't thrown a TD in his last three games but should put an end to that streak this week against a Bengals team he threw two against in week 7. He completed 31 of 41 for 308 yards last week which makes him a tempting start this wee

Brett Favre (NYJ @ TEN)- Favre has managed to go two straight games without an interception after a stretch of seven straight with one. It's not a great matchup for Favre against the Titans defense, but look for him to step up in this big AFC showdown.

  1. Great Hatty Wire Guru,
    Who would you start between Orton vs. STL or Warner vs. NYG?

  2. If your asking me the Cardinals fan then I am going Warner... if you are asking me the Guru then I am going Warner... Warner in my opinion is playing like the number one QB in the NFL. Just my two cents.
