Fantasy Football 2015 Running Back Rankings: Week 12

What does Matt Forte's return mean for the workload and fantasy value of Jeremy Langford?

Is it just me or is the NFL and fantasy season flying by? Can you believe that it’s Thanksgiving already? The really good news is that since we are now in Week 12, every team has had their bye. So that means from here on out we have a full schedule of all 32 teams playing. Which also means we finally have true position rankings.

 

There are of course injury concerns to deal with, as workhorses like Devonta Freeman (concussion) aren't locks to play this week, while others like Matt Forte are scheduled to return and backups Javorius Allen and Terrance West also will get their opportunity to fill Justin Forsett's shoes for the Ravens.
