Running Back Rankings Week 13: Austin Ekeler

It's Week 13 and unfortunately there are so many running back questions and so little room for error at this point in the fantasy football season. Welcome to crunch time for your fantasy football playoffs.

Some of you might have some tough decisions to make this week. Like should you start Josh Adams or Tarik Cohen? Or can you really start Dion Lewis, Adrian Peterson or even Dalvin Cook this week if you need to win? And what about those poor Melvin Gordon owners? Especially those who didn't already have Austin Ekeler as a handcuff?

But that's where these Week 13 running back rankings come in. Hopefully owners in need of answers can find them below, or at least some additional information to help them come to an informed decision as to who to start this week.
