The bye weeks are done, but the running back position still has plenty of questions heading into Week 13. Because of course it does. That’s the nature of the position, as injuries and timeshares play a bigger role here than anywhere else. And that is certainly true this week.
Two high-profile examples are the Chiefs and Packers backfields. These are two backfields Fantasy players want a lot of exposure to, because they share the field with elite quarterbacks and have historically produced plenty of Fantasy points. However, heading into Week 13, it’s not entirely clear who you can trust from these two backfields. In Kansas City, Damien Williams‘ rib injury has his status for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs in doubt, leaving LeSean McCoy as the presumed lead back. Of course, McCoy was benched just a few weeks ago for a load management game, so are they really going to give him 15-plus touches?
Over in Green Bay, we actually haven’t seen a running back carry the ball more than 13 times since Week 8 — when Davante Adams returned from his toe injury. Aaron Jones has been held to fewer than five PPR points in two of three games in that span, and Jamaal Williams has actually outperformed him in that span. All of a sudden, at the most important time of the season, one of the best backs in Fantasy has been outshined by his supposed backup. What are you supposed to do about that?
That’s what we’re here to help figure out. We’ve got Jamey Eisenberg’s Start and Sit calls right here to help you make the right decisions, plus Heath Cummings’ running back preview has projections, matchups that matter, numbers to know, and more as you prepare to set your lineup. It’s going to be a tough week at running back, but we’re here to make sure you’re setting a winning lineup for Week 13.
