Fantasy Football Week 12 Quarterback Preview: Potential fill-ins for Ravens’ Lamar Jackson

by Ryan


Fantasy managers faced a tough decision as to whether they should start Lamar Jackson in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. After his positive Covid test they’ll face the tall task of trying to replace his production.

The Ravens joined a growing list of teams starting a different quarterback in Week 12 than they did in their previous games. One of those teams is the Carolina Panthers, with Teddy Bridgewater schedule to return from a one-week absence due to a knee injury. Bridgewater faces a Vikings defense that just allowed Andy Dalton to throw for three touchdowns and has allowed five of the past seven quarterbacks it has faced to score at least 24 Fantasy points. That makes Bridgewater the top option for replacing Jackson in Week 12.

If Bridgewater isn’t available, Daniel Jones is probably the safest replacement option, and that tells you just how safe the options are. I would actually prefer Mitchell Trubisky against the Packers if the Bears rule out Nick Foles, and you could make an argument for Robert Griffin III because of his projected rushing production.

Other new starters this week include Mike Glennon and Brandon Allen. It’s also been reported that Sam Darnold looks likely to return, displacing Joe Flacco. Unless you’re in a deep two-quarterback league, you can ignore all of those guys.
