Our Week 12 Fantasy Football Rankings are here from our resident fantasy football guru. We’re ranking the quarterbacks here, but check out the other positions as well. Read below to check out where guys like Colin Kaepernick are ranked in Week 12. 1. Aaron Rodgers vs. NYG: Can’t imagine Rodgers won’t be playing for his pride after last season’s devastating loss to New York in the playoffs last season. 2. Robert Griffin III vs. Dal: Pretty hard to not love a quarterback who has run for over 70 yards in half of his games and has racked up a hefty 6 TDs on the ground this season. 3. Tom Brady vs. NYJ 4. Drew Brees vs. SF: Killed them in the playoffs last year and when he’s on it doesn’t matter who he’s up against. 5. Matt Ryan vs. TB: I won’t downgrade Ryan even a smidge for the five interceptions he threw last week (3 of which weren’t his fault at all), since he has made a name for himself over his NFL career as someone who protects the ball extremely well. 6. Peyton Manning vs. KC: Peyton Manning very well could put up all the stats you need within the first half of play, the Chiefs are that bad. 7. Tony Romo vs. Was 8. Andrew Luck vs. Buf: Andrew Luck is putting together one of the more memorable rookie campaigns of recent memory and should continue his dominance against a middling Bills defense. 9. Matthew Stafford vs. Hou 10. Cam Newton vs. Phi: The Eagles have little to nothing to play for at this point, which is always a good thing for opposing quarterbacks. 11. Josh Freeman vs. Atl: Tony Romo lit up the Falcons a week ago so it’s not hard to imagine Freeman doing the same. 12. Eli Manning vs. GB: Playing at a very non-elite level recently, but a Green Bay unit without studs Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews could be just what the doctor ordered. 13. Andy Dalton vs. Oak 14. Matt Schaub vs. Det: Hopefully Schaub builds off last week’s record setting performance against Detroit’s very shaky defense. 15. Carson Palmer vs. Cin: Hard to argue against the amount Carson Palmer throws the ball. 16. Colin Kaepernick vs. NO: The highly versatile Nevada product really stuck it to the Bears this past Monday, so there is no telling what he’ll be capable of against New Orleans’ miserable bunch. 17. Philip Rivers vs. Bal 18. Chad Henne vs. Ten: I was as surprised as any last week when Henne almost led the Jaguars to a victory over Houston (a 15-point favorite), but I have to admit he looked damn good. 19. Joe Flacco vs. SD 20. Jay Cutler vs. Min

The Dallas Cowboys’ season is as done as everyone’s Thanksgiving turkey. After losing an important divisional tilt at home to the Washington Redskins, 38-31, on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys are left with the same issues that they are always left with: terrible play-calling, terrible game management, bad offensive production, porous secondary production.

Tony Romo Needs To Make Some Changes

What’s up with Tony Romo? I haven’t seen a worse display of quarterback skills in a long time. The game yesterday against the Redskins was just the straw to break the camels back for me. I gave him a few chances to redeem himself considering the position is a tough one, but it’s come to the point were something needs to be done. He’s a professional football player. At the...

Rob Ryan: Hopefully Robert Griffin III has a bad Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan faces a tough task Thursday in trying to stop Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. “He is a special player,” said Ryan via The Dallas Morning News. “That’s why they traded half a team to get him. Obviously, he’s a tremendous athlete and they say he is a hell of a kid. I don’t like him, but I know he is very...

Cowboys' playoff hopes getting dark

ARLINGTON, Texas When the Cowboys led the Redskins, 3-0, in the first quarter Thursday, the skies were blue through the open roof at Cowboys Stadium. Then dark clouds rolled in and a light rain began. Even if you're not into omens, it was pretty spooky that the darkness coincided with the Redskins taking the control of the game. Washington scored 28 points in the second quarter...
