It’s Week 12 and fantasy football team owners are battling for a fantasy football playoff spot. A typical league these days has no team dominating every other team in their league. If anything, there’s two or three at the top and several others fighting to get in. For those fighting to stay on top of the fantasy football league standings, the Week 12 fantasy football rankings will help in setting your line-ups. Make sure to check your league’s waiver wire to get the best talented players on your roster.

Which NFC North quarterback may be playing in the playoffs in January but is the least paid? That and 31 other things we learned in Week 11.

This Week 12, pay attention to the injury status of, among others, players like Mitchell Trubisky, Tre’quan Smith, Austin Ekeler, Devin Funchess, and David Njoku. If they are active, they would be rankable players in fantasy football. Most are ranked below as they seem to have a chance of playing.
