Running Back Rankings Week 12: Leonard Fournette

Week 12 of the fantasy football season is already here and while there are just two teams on bye it still means no Todd Gurley or Kareem Hunt.

Those are some pretty big shoes to fill and the schedule (three games on Thanksgiving), doesn't necessarily make things any easier. Nor do things like Kerryon Johnson's knee injury.

So if you're trying to decide whether or not Josh Adams or Peyton Barber is worth starting this week, hopefully these rankings can help you sort through your options.
