Top QBs To Start in Week 12

Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

Justin Fields returned to the Bears’ starting lineup in Week 11 and immediately put up a top-10 fantasy performance. While only 169 passing yards isn’t much to write home about, Fields’ rushing ability came in clutch yet again with 104 yards on 18 attempts!

The Minnesota Vikings’ secondary has tightened things up in recent weeks, but as long as Fields is going to see north of 10+ rush attempts each and every week, he’s going to be in the top 10 of QB rankings moving forward.

His weekly upside is simply too much to let sit on your bench. Fire him up with confidence in Week 12.

Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars

A week after finishing as the QB31 in fantasy football after an abysmal performance against the San Francisco 49ers, Trevor Lawrence put up jaw-dropping numbers against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.

Lawrence ended the game with 32 fantasy points, which is nearly double the next-highest amount that he had all season previously, and he looked like he was back to his 2022 form.

The third-year QB out of Clemson had plenty of hype coming into the year from a fantasy standpoint based on what he did last season, but he finally showcased that ability this past week.

In Week 12, Lawrence gets to take on the Houston Texans defense that is allowing the 11th-most fantasy points to the position so far this season. We may have just witnessed the turning of the tide for Lawrence, and he should be in starting lineups this next week to find out.
