Fantasy Football Top 100 For 2012: #1-20: Three QB Crack Top 10 & More

The countdown is finally over as we reach Rotoprofessor’s Top 20 fantasy football players for the 2012 season.  We all know that these rankings are going to be dominated by the top running backs in the league, so the big question is where do the top wide receivers, quarterbacks and tight ends fall.

Surprised a tight end cracked the Top 20?  That helps to show you how fantasy football has changed.  Another prime example is just how many quarterbacks cracked our Top 10.  With injuries and the league becoming dominated by the running back by committee approach, draft strategies have got to be altered.
