Week 12 Running Back Recommendations

Here’s a quick run through of the RBs that we think will do well this week.

Start to look for a shift in the value of running backs as we see an increase in bad weather. Rain, wind, snow and freezing temperatures will cause teams to throw less and run more.

This week will provide you some top and running backs along with some middle to low tier RB’s to help you fill out you lineups.

Matt Forte

This all-purpose back will be facing the hapless Tampa Bay defense. Forte leads the team in receptions and rushing yards and we expect him to have a monster game come Sunday.

DeMarco Murray

The Cowboys are playing the New York Giants who are terrible against the run. With Dallas needing to keep Tony Romo healthy and the team coming off a bye week, we expect the Cowboys to lean heavily on Murray in this crucial division matchup.

Houston Running Back

We’re not sure who’s going to be the starting running back this week for the Texans, but whoever it is you want to get him into your lineup. Arian Foster has been nursing an injury, and if he can’t go, Alfred Blue will get the nod. Keep an eye on the injury reports. If Blue is in definitely start him, if Foster is the starter be careful as he is likely to split time or reactivate his injury.

Eddie Lacey

The Packers be playing the Vikings outdoors in the polar vortex. So, whether Green Bay decides to run the ball more, or if there blowing up Vikings, we expect Lacey to see significant touches and this game.

CJ Anderson

The bottom line is that the Broncos win when they run the ball. Look for more of an emphasis on the running game as the Broncos deal with some injuries to their pass catchers, and with Ball in Hillman out with injuries, Anderson will reap the rewards.

Isaiah Crowell

The Browns released Ben Tate leaving Crowell and Terrance West as their only real options. They may split time but Crowell is our bet to get the lion’s share of the touches. Start him with confidence as a low salary value play.
