As far as quarterback rankings go, lately it's been Aaron Rodgers, followed by everyone else. The Packers signal caller has been in a tier of his own of late, as his team has put up back-to-back 50-point outbursts. Over that span, Rodgers has thrown for 656 yards, nine touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Once again, Rodgers has a fantastic matchup this week versus the Minnesota Vikings, and he remains not just a must-start, but a popular bet to top the quarterback rankings for Week 12. Rounding out our staff's top-five are the usual suspects in Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

Unfortunately, unless you're in a five-team league, you don't have the luxury of starting these guys every week. And if you are in a five-team league, you're in a realm of fantasy football that I don't want any part of. So let's see how the rest of the league's signal callers stack up for Week 12:
