What are the different ways a veteran-rookie QB situation can manifest itself? Bridge quarterbacks past and present shed light on the complex relationship between a veteran and a QB of the future.


"The Buzz" presents trends to be aware of, which players to exploit or avoid, and the latest fantasy news heading into Week 12. Plus, the Fantasy Doctor offers up winning advice to help your roster.
