The QB position is by far and away the easiest Fantasy Football Position to fill on a week in and week out basis.  Even if you have lost Aaron Rodgers to injury, Matt Ryan to performance and Russell Wilson to a bye week there are plenty of good options for you this week.  For Daily Fantasy Football Players this is an excellent position to save your money this week and spend it on one of the premium RB's or WR's.  Here are the Week 12 QB Rankings:

Unlike their backfield Brethren, RB's are not nearly as easy to come by this week...or any week for that matter.  With Marshawn Lynch, LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller and others off this week the pool is quite thin.  Luckily, there are some very intriguing matchups to take advantage of and help us advance closer to the Fantasy Playoffs.  Here are our Week 12 RB Rankings:

As the weather becomes more and more of a factor, we need to start paying more attention to not only who our WR's are playing against but where they are playing as well.  While there isn't a single or group of Defensive Backs in the NFL that can stop Calvin Johnson, Mother Nature potentially could.  This is why I've done my Meteorology homework this week in preparing your Week 12 WR Rankings:
