With the 2011 fantasy football season in the rear view mirror, Jason Smith looks at who could be the top fantasy pick in 2012. The answer isn’t as simple as you’d think.

If you’re in the fantasy playoffs, chances are your roster is pretty locked in, but it doesn’t mean there’s no more advice to give – in fact, I can’t believe there’s some things that owners are still ignoring even as we hit Week 15. So in no particular order, here’s what’s on my mind today.

While watching film with Joe Theismann this week, he wondered what Aaron Rodgers’ completion percentage would be if you took dropped passes out the equation. Drops, throwaways, and spikes are all incompletions that a QB is usually not responsible for. What would happen if we took these out of the equation? The result was what we call a “True QBR” rating.

I got a tweet from William B. on Monday night: “Why is the one day I bench Rivers, his best day of the season?” Because that’s fantasy football. And I should know, because I spent most of my time on Thursday’s edition of NFL Fantasy Live breaking up with Philip Rivers, ending our association for the season.
Apparently, that was the kick-start he needed to get things going.

We’re halfway through the season and the usual suspects are still on pace to shatter Dan Marino‘s single-season passing record. Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers all are in position to break the mark of 5,084 yards.

For this week’s quarterback rankings, there are no byes, remember. We’re skipping a week before they finish up in Week 11. That means you play all of the Holy Five: Rodgers, Brady, Vick, Brees, and Newton — regardless of matchup. This makes picking the next five best QBs extremely difficult because they’re all available. Here’s how I rank them six through 10 for Week 10.

Long-time readers of this space know that every Monday night game seems like Halloween to me. Although, I have to give some discredit to the Sunday night game for ruining my fantasy weeks, too including LeSean McCoy erasing my 29-point lead this week. But a funny thing happened to me this Monday — I actually won.
