Fantasy football owners have a few running backs to target on waiver wires this week, as key starters like Melvin Gordon and Marlon Mack went down with injuries in Week 12.
Monitoring the injury report heading into Week 13 will be a critical task for fantasy football owners, because Melvin Gordon suffered a knee injury and Marlon Mack was concussed in their Week 12 games. Plus, with Leonard Fournette suspended after getting into a fight with Buffalo Bills edge rusher Shaq Lawson, there will be more fantasy owners scouring the waiver wire for options.
There were also a few notable breakout performances in Week 12. With Kerryon Johnson injured on Thanksgiving Day, LeGarrette Blount led the way for the Detroit Lions offense against the Chicago Bears, especially with Matthew Stafford struggling against a hungry defense. Meanwhile, Austin Ekeler took advantage of Gordon’s injury, catching 10 passes on Philip Rivers’s red-hot passing day.
Quarterback Josh Allen got his revenge against Jalen Ramsey and the Jaguars defense, racking up plenty of rushing yardage in the process. Dak Prescott and Lamar Jackson joined him with big fantasy days, too, scoring 20+ points apiece, with Prescott clearly benefiting greatly from Amari Cooper’s explosion in the Dallas Cowboys offense.
There are plenty of players to choose from on waivers this week, and here are just 10 options for fantasy owners heading into Week 13.
