Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 13

Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys

Tony Pollard has a lot of upside as a RB2 for Week 13

With plenty of injuries to running backs, some big names are missing from the fantasy rankings for Week 13. Dalvin Cook is out, Christian McCaffrey is out. D'Andre Swift is not included in the rankings, although he has not been officially ruled out. As a result, Alexander Mattison is now in the top 10. Chuba Hubbard is on a bye but will likely be in the top 20 for Week 14. Jamaal Williams is in the top 20. It is the time of year when backup running backs will win you weeks.

Also note that some of the normal top-tier guys such as Ezekiel Elliott and Saquon Barkley are not in the top 10. Barkley is still recovering from injury (and is on an offense that is struggling, especially with Daniel Jones possibly missing the game). Elliott is dealing with his own injury and Tony Pollard has been stealing touches. Both Dallas backs are ranked as RB2s this week, although Pollard has more upside. And don't forget that Dallas plays New Orleans on Thursday night, so a decision will have to be made quickly on those two (as well as Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, if the latter is able to return this week).
