Who has a better fantasy season in 2012, Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck?

Who has a better fantasy season in 2012, Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck? Rizzla: I believe RGIII is destined for a better rookie season from a fantasy standpoint as he will likely rush for a few hundred more yards than Luck, who has some wheels of his own.
