The Top QBs To Start in Week 12

Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

Goff had himself an uncharacteristic Week 11, just like his counterpart on Turkey Day, Jordan Love, did. Unlike Love, his fantasy managers were not amused (three interceptions on 35 attempts after throwing just five on 326 attempts).

I’m happy to go back to the Goff well — he’s my QB10 for the week. Prior to last week’s dud, Goff had cleared 270 passing yards in four straight, and I expect him to start a new streak like that in this spot against a Packers team that struggles to keep their offense on the field (24th in average time of possession).

Even in a bad game last week, Goff led his team down the field when it counted most and followed a simple process that I look for when ranking the QB position: intelligence. He funneled 68.8% of his targets to his primary three playmakers in the passing game, the best way possible for a pocket passer to pay off our trust.

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

I’m officially OK with trusting Murray for the remainder of the season after posting finishes of 13th and sixth at the position in his first two starts of the season. In both of those games, he has at least 30 rushing yards and a score on the ground, elevating his floor to that of a fantasy start.

Could he access a top-five ceiling? Probably not consistently, given the lack of support around him, but with his aDOT through two games up 47.9% from last season, there is certainly a ceiling to chase.

You know I like Goff and Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence plenty, so it is saying something when you see that I have Murray ranked ahead of both of them against a below-average defense in terms of yards per play.
