Week 13 Fantasy RB Rankings | Fantasy


1 Todd Gurley, Rams @ Lions 2 Christian McCaffrey, Panthers @ Buccaneers. Final time McCaffrey took on the Buccaneers, he totaled 157 scrimmage yards and scored twice. The Bucs protection has allowed no less than 140 scrimmage yards to each Matt Breida and Saquon Barkley prior to now two video games, and McCaffrey ought to have related success in a strong matchup. 3 Phillip Lindsay, Broncos @ Bengals. Lindsay does not look like hitting a rookie wall. The truth is, he has averaged over 7.zero yards per carry in every of his previous two outings and has scored 3 times in that span. He’ll get an opportunity to tear aside a reeling Bengals protection that has allowed essentially the most fantasy factors to RBs and 4 backs to whole 19.5-plus factors in its previous three video games.  4 Aaron Jones, Packers vs. Cardinals. Jones has scored and had no less than 93 scrimmage yards in his previous three video games. The Cardinals have been poor in opposition to the run all season, they usually had been gashed by the Chargers final week to the tune of 178 yards and three scores on the bottom final week. The Packers ought to look to use this weak point in a must-win battle for them, so Jones has a excessive ceiling in Week 13. 5 David Johnson, Cardinals @ Packers 6 Saquon Barkley, Giants vs. Bears   WEEK 13 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings 7 Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys vs. Saints 8 Alvin Kamara, Saints @ Cowboys 9 Joe Mixon, Bengals vs. Broncos. Regardless of the Bengals’ unhealthy loss to the Browns final week, Mixon was nonetheless closely concerned within the sport plan and totaled 155 scrimmage yards. The Broncos have been higher in opposition to RBs in current weeks, however they’ve allowed 181 receiving yards to the place of their previous two video games. Mixon has been strong as a receiver in current weeks, so he will be trusted as a low-end RB1. 10 Nick Chubb, Browns @ Texans. Since taking up because the starter in Cleveland, Chubb has averaged about 23 touches per sport and in every of his final two outings, he has a speeding and receiving TD. The Texans have given up the 12th-fewest fantasy factors to RBs previous to their Week 12 matchup with the Titans, however Chubb is nice sufficient to do harm and function a scoring menace. If the Browns get down by the purpose line, he will definitely have his alternative to attain. 11 James Conner, Steelers vs. Chargers. After beginning the season scorching, Conner has slowed down in current weeks. He has scored simply as soon as prior to now three weeks and has 217 scrimmage yards in that span. The Chargers might proceed to sluggish him down, as they’ve solely allowed seven TDs to the RB place to date this season. Conner might rack up some yards, however his lack of scoring upside knocks him down into RB2 territory. 12 Matt Breida, 49ers @ Seahawks. Breida has back-to-back 100-plus yard video games on the bottom and it seems that the ankle harm that plagued him for a superb chunk of the season. The Seahawks have given up no less than 22 fantasy factors to a beginning RB in every of the previous three weeks, so Breida is a candidate to proceed that streak. 13 LeSean McCoy, Payments @ Dolphins   WEEK 13 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKings 14 Spencer Ware, Chiefs @ Raiders. Ware has been a yards-per-touch monster this yr, averaging 11.Three yards per carry (22 carries) and 15 yards per reception (14 catches). With Kareem Hunt like out due to a home violence incident, Ware ought to see 15-plus touches in opposition to one of many worst defenses within the league. Given the character of the Chiefs high-powered offense, he is a borderline RB1. 15 Gus Edwards, Ravens @ Falcons. Since taking up because the starter for the Ravens, Edwards has 40 carries for 233 yards and a TD in two video games. Granted, they had been in opposition to weaker defenses, however the Falcons are a weak run protection too. They’ve allowed the fourth-most fantasy factors to RBs this season, so Edwards ought to have an opportunity for a third-straight 100-plus yard sport. 16 Doug Martin, Raiders vs. Chiefs. Martin has solely averaged 12 carries prior to now 5 video games, however he is nonetheless a TD-threat, as evidenced by the rating he had in opposition to the Ravens final week. The Chiefs have allowed the third-most fantasy factors to RBs this season and have allowed 5 double-digit scorers on the place prior to now three weeks. Martin ought to be in place to attain and will have sufficient quantity to be an RB2 — offered that the game-script does not swing an excessive amount of in Jalen Richard’s favor. 17 Chris Carson, Seahawks vs. 49ers 18 Dion Lewis, Titans vs. Jets. Lewis has struggled to run the ball in current weeks and is barely averaging 2.Four yards per carry in his final three video games. That stated, a gathering with the Jets might assist him to vary that. The Jets have allowed the 10th-most speeding yards within the league, they usually simply allowed Sony Michel and James White to mix for 206 yards on the bottom. Lewis is a primary bounce-back candidate following a disappointing outing in opposition to the Texans. 19 Lamar Miller, Texans vs. Browns. Miller seemingly had an enormous stat line in opposition to the Titans final week, however a deeper dive reveals that Alfred Blue truly out-touched him 14-13. An excellent chunk of Miller’s fantasy manufacturing got here on a 97-yard TD run, in order that needs to be taken into consideration. Miller continues to be an RB2, however do not be fooled into pondering that he is an RB1 after one good outing. 20 Jordan Howard, Bears @ Giants. Howard might find yourself being a strong play this week. Which will appear counterintuitive on condition that he has solely posted 112 scrimmage yards within the final three video games with no scores, however the Giants have struggled in opposition to working backs for the reason that departure of Damon “Snacks” Harrison. Previously three weeks, Josh Adams, Peyton Barber, and Matt Breida have all posted no less than 16.Four fantasy factors in opposition to the Giants. If Howard can rating, he might have an opportunity to put up equally strong numbers.   MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup Builder 21 Austin Ekeler, Chargers @ Steelers. With Melvin Gordon out, Ekeler will tackle an enormous chunk of the Chargers’ workload within the backfield. The backup/third-down again noticed 15 touches in opposition to the Cardinals final week and managed 103 whole yards and a rating. After beginning the season sturdy, the Steelers run protection has faltered these days, they usually have allowed a 17-plus level scorer on the place in every of their final three video games. Ekeler ought to have an opportunity to see a high-volume of touches and will havea nice sport — offered that Justin Jackson does not steal all of the goal-line carries. 22 Carlos Hyde, Jaguars vs. Colts. Hyde will likely be in line to begin with Leonard Fournette suspended on this contest. Based mostly on quantity alone within the run-heavy Jaguars offense, Hyde will be began as an RB2. 23 Dalvin Prepare dinner, Vikings @ Patriots. Prepare dinner hasn’t accomplished a lot on the bottom in current weeks, however he did have a pleasant TD catch in opposition to the Packers final week. The Patriots have been good in opposition to working backs this yr, they usually have solely allowed one double-digit scorer on the place since Week 8. Prepare dinner might break that streak if he reaches the tip zone, however this matchup makes him a dangerous RB2 this week. 24 Sony Michel, Patriots vs. Vikings. Michel will get a tricky matchup with a Vikings protection that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy factors to RBs this season. He’s coming off a 133-yard sport in opposition to the Jets, nevertheless it’s laborious to think about him discovering the identical form of success in opposition to the Vikings. 25 Marlon Mack, Colts @ Jaguars 26 Adrian Peterson, Redskins @ Eagles. The Eagles protection is beginning to crumble and prior to now three weeks, they’ve allowed 4 RBs to attain no less than 16.Eight fantasy factors in opposition to them. Peterson has been struggling these days too (69 or much less scrimmage yards in 4 consecutive outings) and he did undergo a minor shoulder harm in opposition to the Cowboys. There’s an opportunity that he might carry out effectively in opposition to the Eagles, however given his well being and the accidents to his offensive line, he is nonetheless only a fringe RB2 candidate. 27 James White, Patriots vs. Vikings. White’s function within the New England backfield has been unstable, however he might see an uptick in work as a cross catcher in opposition to a tricky Vikings run protection. It should even be attention-grabbing to see if he loses any touches to Rex Burkhead, who’s eligible to return to the squad for this week’s sport. 28 Josh Adams, Eagles vs. Redskins. Adams has touchdowns in consecutive weeks and had 22 carries for 84 yards in opposition to the Giants final week. The Eagles have been adamant about getting him extra touches, and it seems that he would be the lead again transferring ahead. The Redskins protection has been cold and warm this yr, however they’ve usually been strong in opposition to the run. 29 Mark Ingram, Saints @ Cowboys 30 Tarik Cohen, Bears @ Giants. Cohen, like his teammate Howard, has a superb matchup with the Giants. The Giants have allowed six receiving TDs to RBs this season, tied for many within the league. That stated, Howard will probably command extra touches than Cohen, so we like Howard a bit higher this week. Cohen continues to be a powerful FLEX play on the very least. 31 Peyton Barber, Buccaneers vs. Panthers. Final time Barber confronted the Panthers, he was solely capable of generate 31 yards on the bottom. He has scored in back-to-back weeks, however with out a landing, he’ll wrestle in opposition to Carolina’s strong run protection. 32 Royce Freeman, Broncos @ Bengals. Freeman has clearly taken a backseat to Phillip Lindsay, however Freeman does have a rating in 5-of-9 video games that he has performed on this yr. The Bengals have an terrible protection, so Freeman might discover the tip zone and change into a FLEX play this week due to it. 33 LeGarrette Blount, Lions vs. Rams 34 Frank Gore, Dolphins vs. Payments. Gore are Kenyan Drake are splitting touches on the RB place, however Gore nonetheless has the slight benefit over Drake in that battle. The Payments have allowed the 10th-most fantasy factors to RBs this season, so the duo might be able to take benefit. Nonetheless, the carry break up ought to render each speculative FLEX performs, as they are going to be extra TD-dependent than different prime choices. 35 Duke Johnson Jr., Browns @ Texans 36 Tevin Coleman, Falcons vs. Ravens. Previously three weeks, Coleman has 171 scrimmage yards and a garbage-time TD. He is regaining extra carries after initially dropping them to Ito Smith, however he simply hasn’t been producing sufficient to be something greater than a FLEX play. That will not change in opposition to a Ravens protection that offers up the fewest fantasy factors to RBs. 37 T.J. Yeldon, Jaguars vs. Colts. Yeldon is an attention-grabbing potential play if Leonard Fournette’s suspension is, certainly, upheld as anticipated. The Colts have given up 80 catches to RBs this season, good for second-most within the league. Yeldon could be the first receiver and if Jacksonville is down, he might catch many checkdowns from Cody Kessler. Yeldon might be a possible starter or a price decide in DFS codecs for Week 13. 38 Kenyan Drake, Dolphins vs. Payments 39 Justin Jackson, Chargers @ Steelers. Jackson averaged 8.1 yards per carry in his first look of prolonged motion final week. With Melvin Gordon out, Jackson might play a job because the foil to Austin Ekeler. If he can get some touches close to the purpose line, which might make sense given his bigger body, he might be a related play this week. On the very least, be certain that to seize Jackson off the waiver wire. 40 Isaiah Crowell, Jets @ Titans 41 Elijah McGuire, Jets @ Titans 42 Kenneth Dixon, Ravens @ Falcons 43 Derrick Henry, Titans vs. Jets 44 Theo Riddick, Lions vs. Rams 45 Chris Thompson, Redskins @ Eagles 46 Jalen Richard, Raiders vs. Chiefs. If the Raiders fall behind, Richard might see extra motion than Doug Martin as a cross catcher. Nonetheless, Richard has been restricted to 59 or fewer receiving yards in each sport this yr and has but to attain. So, his upside is a bit capped and that makes him a riskier begin in non-PPR codecs. 47 Giovani Bernard, Bengals vs. Broncos 48 Latavius Murray, Vikings @ Patriots 49 Nyheim Hines, Colts @ Jaguars 50 Ito Smith, Falcons vs. Ravens 51 Rashaad Penny, Seahawks vs. 49ers 52 Alfred Blue, Texans vs. Browns 53 Corey Clement, Eagles vs. Redskins 54 Rex Burkhead, Patriots vs. Vikings. Burkhead has returned from IR, however his function within the Patriots’ backfield is unclear. One would assume he could be the third choice behind Sony Michel and James White, however till we see what occurs on Sunday, we can’t know for positive. 55 Jeff Wilson Jr., 49ers @ Seahawks 56 Buck Allen, Ravens @ Falcons 57 Jacquizz Rodgers, Buccaneers vs. Panthers 58 Mike Davis, Seahawks vs. 49ers 59 Jamaal Williams, Packers vs. Cardinals 60 Chris Ivory, Payments @ Dolphins 61 Malcolm Brown, Rams @ Lions
