Fantasy Football – Week 12 QB Rankings

Aaron RodgersRanks Preview by Brian Spencer

Aaron Rodgers’ Thanksgiving feast starts early this year, and the fattened turkey that is the Detroit Lions secondary is so juicy, so bountiful, that there probably won’t be any room left for dessert. As far as fantasy matchups go, it just doesn’t get any better for investors in the Packers’ passing attack than this.

Last Sunday we saw Cleveland Browns QB Brady Quinn, recognized as one of the league’s worst starting quarterbacks on literally the NFL’s worst offense, light the Lions up like a Christmas tree to the tune of 21-33 for 304 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs, and a staggering 133.1 QB Rating. Impressive, especially when you consider that in his previous four games combined, Quinn had thrown for 303 yards, 4 INTs, and 0 TDs.

So, yeah–expect big things from Rodgers Thursday morning. To make matters worse for the Lions, not only will they likely be without Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson on offense, the already razor-thin depth in the defensive secondary became stretched even further this week when starting SS Ko Simpson was ruled out with a knee injury. That forces somebody named Marvin White into a featured role. Good God.
