Starting QB Outlook for Week 12

Steven Hauschka, Seahawks – I had said Hauschka would probably stay on the bench until Kam Chancellor is back, but after watching rookie S Earl Thomas on Thursday, I think he may make a two-time Pro Bowler start warming up in the final seconds of the game. This would do wonders for Hauschka’s fantasy football value; I saw a lot of Hauschka during his Eagles days.

Phillip Rivers, Chargers – Chargers injury woes continue to mount, with running back Melvin Gordon (knee) and tight end Hunter Henry (foot) both out for the season. That’s forcing Rivers into a high-risk, high-reward situation, with the best option being to sit him and let somebody else take his position.

Matthew Stafford, Lions – Stafford is in a very similar situation to Rivers; the Lions badly need to get better help at the running back position, so if Detroit is going to make the playoffs, he will almost definitely need to put his stamp on that season. Start him if you can, but don’t expect him to be Week 12’s hottest quarterback.
