The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 12 Quarterbacks

By Steve Schwarz | 11/23/22
Bye Weeks: N/A
QBs | RBs | WRs

Grab a Helmet

1) Kyle Allen @ Miami

The Dolphins’ passing offense is prolific, but their pass defense has been generous to a fault giving up two 40-point games and a 30-point game this season. Houston figures to be behind and throwing for most of the day and a healthy Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins should be enough talent to make Kyle Allen a decent play in a week where there are many quarterback question marks.

Matt Ryan

2) Matt Ryan vs. Pittsburgh

This Pittsburgh defense is not the “Steel Curtain” of the 1970s. They allow opposing QBs the third-most fantasy points per week – 24.1 FPts/G. Ryan struggled against his hometown Philadelphia Eagles last weekend, but they are tough against most quarterbacks. With three healthy receivers (Michael Pittman Jr., Alec Pierce and Parris Campbell), Ryan should rebound at home where he has been pretty good, averaging 295 passing yards, and has a 7:1 TD to interception ratio.

3) Geno Smith vs. Las Vegas

The name Geno Smith doesn’t strike fear into the hearts of defenses, but it should, based on his play this season. He’s been a top-10 fantasy quarterback all season and facing a Raiders defense allowing 24 FPts/G. Only Andy Dalton and Russell Wilson have failed to reach at least 21 fantasy points and neither is playing at Smith’s level.

Grab a Clipboard

1) Sam Darnold vs. Denver

The new trend in the NFL is benching your starting quarterback. Panthers HC Steve Wilks named his Week 12 starting quarterback, but it doesn’t matter. Darnold is the “sacrificial lamb” that ends up starting against the league’s best pass defense. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

2) Aaron Rodgers @ Philadelphia

The Eagles’ pass defense is stout and Aaron Rodgers’ passing offense is muddled and confused most of the time. Green Bay should be testing the Eagles’ run defense most of the game and when “ARod” passes it will be the short variety to avoid the Eagles’ pass rush. Rodgers has yet to throw for 300 yards this season.

3) Ryan Tannehill vs. Cincinnati

The Bengals defense doesn’t get much attention from the media, but it should. They have allowed QBs an average of 17 FPts/G (fourth-best) and one touchdown per game. Tannehill has yet to crack the 25-point mark in any game this season and this isn’t the spot to do it.
