Week 12′s Top Quarterbacks for Fantasy Football

The Patriots have dominated the AFC East for the past 15 years and will face off against one of their divisional rivals this week when they travel to play against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Todd Bowles’ men have struggled immensely in the secondary this term, with even future Hall-of-Famer Darrelle Revis displaying signs of his age.
.
As a result, expect Brady and his passing attack to carve up the Jets’ defense with Martellus Bennett, Julian Edelman and potentially Rob Gronkowski playing a crucial role. The return of Dion Lewis in the Patriots’ backfield could even see Bill Belichick’s men towards the 40-point mark.
.
A win would put the Patriots in with a strong chance of locking up one of the top seeds in the AFC, and in the latest betting odds they are backed as strong contenders to win the Super Bowl, although prices can vary so looking at comparisons in sites that review the best bookmakers, casinos and slots online could be make the difference in placing the right punt.
.
Mariota and the Titans offense are really beginning to hit their stride as proven with their 47-point display against the Green Bay Packers. The 23-year-old is beginning to deliver on his potential that saw the AFC South outfit use the second-overall selection in the 2015 Draft to acquire his services.
.
He will be facing a poor defensive team in the form of the Chicago Bears, who were taken apart by the player picked one spot ahead of Mariota last year, Jameis Winston. As a result, Mariota will have a huge day in the air, connecting with his tight end Delanie Walker and receivers Kendall Wright and Rishard Matthews.
.
Tennessee need to keep up their form on offense as their defense has been porous at times this season, which could prevent them from earning a post-season berth in their division.
.
Manning has been below-par this season, failing to connect with the talent around him, and is projected to finish with a lower total touchdown count than last season’s 35 where he spread the ball around well, enjoying one of the best campaigns of his career.
.
The perfect remedy for a struggling offense this term has been to play the Cleveland Browns, who are ranked in the bottom five in the NFL in passing defense. There is a dearth of talent in the AFC North side’s pass rush and secondary, leaving them vulnerable to quality attacks.
.
The 34-year-old should have little problem firing to Odell Beckham Jr and Sterling Shepard for touchdowns aplenty at FirstEnergy Stadium and that would send his touchdown totals in the right direction as well as keeping the Giants in the hunt of the post-season.
