Thursday Games: Green Bay @ Detroit, Miami @ Dallas, San Francisco @ Baltimore
With six teams playing on this Thursday (see above) we needed to get our weekly projections up a bit earlier. Having so many players eligible for Thursday moves all your roster decisions up.
So who can you depend on in Week 12 at quarterback? Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated quarterbacks in Week 12. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
Can Michael Vick go this week? If so, he projects out pretty well, but you have to be worried about a shot to his ribs in the game if he plays. Use caution. Ryan Fitzpatrick was a hot quarterback in the early part of the year but has dropped off severely in the last few weeks. The computer likes his matchup this week and projects him to be an almost top-tier quarterback. Enjoy the rest of the rankings below.
* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
Injured players appear on the list, this is their projection IF they play.
