Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 13

Ronald Jones faces a Jaguars defense who just gave up a big game to Derrick Henry

Fantasy owners enjoyed two touchdowns from a handful of running backs in Week 12: Leonard Fournette, Christian McCaffrey, Mark Ingram, and Derrick Henry. Six running backs had more than 100 rushing yards: Henry, Ingram, Devin Singletary, Nick Chubb, Jonathan Williams, and Rashaad Penny.

 

Out of this group, Penny is one of the more interesting players to look at. After Chris Carson fumbled, Penny took over. However, without his 58-yard touchdown run, his stats would look much different. Penny has been banged up this year, but both times he has seen double-digit carries, he's scored a touchdown. Small sample size? Sure. Coincidence? Perhaps, but he's worth a look at flex this week: he's the No. 33 running back.

 

Another player to look at for Week 13 is Ronald Jones. He's ranked No. 21, but in the past four games, he's scored a touchdown in three of them. The Buccaneers end up playing from behind, which does limit his work. However, they face Jacksonville in Week 13, which is a great matchup (see Henry's stats from Week 12). Jones isn't a flashy name, but he's someone to consider putting in your lineup and hoping for the best.
