NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football Rankings



To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on my Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em page, you can check out the Weekly Fantasy Football Rankings, so you can figure out whom to start between Player X and Player Y.

Below are my fantasy RB rankings and a set of links for my positional Weekly NFL Fantasy Football Rankings. Keep in mind that this list is for this week only; not the entire rest of the season. If you don't like my rankings, check out Chet's fantasy football rankings.

The rankings are based on a PPR scoring system. Each player has Walterfootball.com's projected stats and standard scoring points.

Fantasy Football Weekly Rankings - PPR: RB | WR | TE | FLEX


But who do I start...

Updated - Follow @walterfootball for updates.
  1. Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs (vs. Bills)- 24 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Kareem Hunt might be able to break through his rookie wall against a Buffalo run defense that has regressed without Marcell Dareus.

  2. Le'Veon Bell, RB, Steelers (vs. Packers)- 23 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Packers' run defense isn't bad, but Le'Veon Bell will be a big factor as a receiver out of the backfield.

  3. LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills (at Chiefs)- 22 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Chiefs' run defense has struggled lately, so LeSean McCoy seems poised for another terrific performance.

  4. Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons (vs. Buccaneers)- 22 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Devonta Freeman will be a top option if he clears concussion protocol.

  5. Mark Ingram, RB, Saints (at Rams)- 22 Points
    110 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Rams haven't been good against the run, so Mark Ingram figures to have another monstrous performance.

  6. Todd Gurley, RB, Rams (vs. Saints)- 21 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Samaje Perine just had a big game versus New Orleans, so I think Todd Gurley could easily bounce back.



  7. Alvin Kamara, RB, Saints (at Rams)- 19 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 60 Receiving Yards.
    Alvin Kamara should be started every week.

  8. Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars (at Cardinals)- 18 Points
    90 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Leonard Fournette eclisped 100 yards last week despite being banged up, so definitely start Leonard Fournette.

  9. Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers (at Cowboys)- 17 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Cowboys aren't nearly as good against the run without Sean Lee.

  10. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers (at Jets)- 17 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Christian McCaffrey is finally getting more of a workload, so fire him up in all formats.

  11. Carlos Hyde, RB, 49ers (vs. Seahawks)- 15 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards.
    The Seahawks haven't allowed a team to gain 100-plus yards since Week 3.

  12. Tevin Coleman, RB, Falcons (vs. Buccaneers)- 15 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Buccaneers struggle against the run, so definitely use Tevin Coleman if Devonta Freeman is out.

  13. Bilal Powell, RB, Jets (vs. Panthers)- 15 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards.
    Bilal Powell is splitting touches, and he'll be going against a tough run defense.

  14. Jordan Howard, RB, Bears (at Eagles)- 13 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    The Eagles will be way ahead, limiting Jordan Howard's chances to run the ball.

  15. Jay Ajayi, RB, Eagles (vs. Bears)- 13 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Jay Ajayi keeps splitting touches, so it's hard to trust him even though he's gotten two long runs in two starts with the Eagles.

  16. C.J. Anderson, RB, Broncos (at Raiders)- 12 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.
    The Raiders aren't very good against the run, but they aren't horrible against it. They're wore against pass-catching backs.

  17. Theo Riddick, RB, Lions (vs. Vikings)- 12 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 6 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards.


  18. Dion Lewis, RB, Patriots (vs. Dolphins)- 12 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    Dion Lewis is the leader of a crowded backfield, which doesn't sound great.

  19. Jerick McKinnon, RB, Vikings (at Lions)- 12 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards.
    It's tough to figure out Minnesota's running back rotation.

  20. Duke Johnson, RB, Browns (at Bengals)- 11 Points
    10 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards.
    Duke Johnson can be used in PPR leagues, but that's it.

  21. Damien Williams, RB, Dolphins (at Patriots)- 11 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    Save for one long run last week, Damien Williams did nothing. The Dolphins are likely to trail throughout, rendering Williams useless.

  22. Ameer Abdullah, RB, Lions (vs. Vikings)- 11 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    Ameer Abdullah has a tough matchup this week, but can still be started because he could score a touchdown.

  23. DeMarco Murray, RB, Titans (at Colts)- 11 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    The Colts actually happen to be pretty stout versus the run, so I'm not crazy about a banged-up DeMarco Murray this week.

  24. Joe Mixon, RB, Bengals (vs. Browns)- 10 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 1 TD.
    Cleveland has a decent run defense, so don't expect much from Joe Mixon.

  25. Austin Ekeler, RB, Chargers (at Cowboys)- 10 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards.


  26. T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jaguars (at Cardinals)- 10 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  27. James White, RB, Patriots (vs. Dolphins)- 10 Points
    5 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards.


  28. Danny Woodhead, RB, Ravens (vs. Texans)- 10 Points
    10 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards.
    Danny Woodhead is a flex PPR option.

  29. JD McKissic, RB, Seahawks (at 49ers)- 10 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards.


  30. Giovani Bernard, RB, Bengals (vs. Browns)- 9 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  31. Frank Gore, RB, Colts (vs. Titans)- 9 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.
    The Titans have surrendered two 100-yard rushing performances all year.

  32. Kenyan Drake, RB, Dolphins (at Patriots)- 9 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  33. Orleans Darkwa, RB, Giants (at Redskins)- 9 Points
    90 Rushing Yards.
    Washington's defensive line injuries have rendered the team weak against the run.

  34. Ty Montgomery, RB, Packers (at Steelers)- 9 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.
    Status unknown.

  35. Rex Burkhead, RB, Patriots (vs. Dolphins)- 9 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  36. Jalen Richard, RB, Raiders (vs. Broncos)- 9 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  37. Lamar Miller, RB, Texans (at Ravens)- 9 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.
    The Ravens are stout versus the run with Brandon Williams in the lineup.

  38. Matt Breida, RB, 49ers (vs. Seahawks)- 8 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  39. Tarik Cohen, RB, Bears (at Eagles)- 8 Points
    10 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  40. Jamaal Charles, RB, Broncos (at Raiders)- 8 Points
    10 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  41. Isaiah Crowell, RB, Browns (at Bengals)- 8 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.
    The Bengals have struggled against the run lately, but I couldn't trust Isaiah Crowell.

  42. Adrian Peterson, RB, Cardinals (vs. Jaguars)- 8 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.
    Adrian Peterson figures to continue to struggle.

  43. Rod Smith, RB, Cowboys (vs. Chargers)- 8 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  44. DeAndre Washington, RB, Raiders (vs. Broncos)- 8 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  45. Latavius Murray, RB, Vikings (at Lions)- 8 Points
    80 Rushing Yards.
    Latavius Murray keeps scoring touchdowns, but that's not very reliable.

  46. Corey Clement, RB, Eagles (vs. Bears)- 7 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.


  47. Doug Martin, RB, Bucs (at Falcons)- 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards.
    Doug Martin is woeful right now, so I'd avoid him.

  48. Marlon Mack, RB, Colts (vs. Titans)- 6 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.


  49. Alfred Morris, RB, Cowboys (vs. Chargers)- 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards.

    10 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  51. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Raiders (vs. Broncos)- 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards.
    Denver's defense will clamp down on Marshawn Lynch.

  52. Samaje Perine, RB, Redskins (vs. Giants)- 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards.
    The Giants are solid versus the run with Snacks Harrison in the lineup, but Samaje Perine could be in position to score a touchdown.

  53. Derrick Henry, RB, Titans (at Colts)- 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards.


  54. Benny Cunningham, RB, Bears (at Eagles)- 5 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.
