It’s Thanksgiving Week in the NFL, and many of us are going to react to how Thursday’s games treated our teams. These running backs will be able to get you back on track.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday filled with family, food, and most importantly, football. Many of us spend half our vacation on our phones to see how Ezekiel Elliott’s touchdown affected our teams or what it cost us when we started Andy Dalton our usual starting quarterback because he was facing the Lions. Speaking of the Lions, the people who started D’Andre Swift weren’t happy with his inability to stay healthy. Now that we face the consequences of our actions on Thursday, it’s time to look at Sunday’s fantasy football lineup.
The running back position is getting back to where it was near the start of the season. Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt, Saxon Barkley, James Robinson, Cordrell Patterson, Damien Harris and Miles Sanders are all coming back from recent injuries. This does not mean that the situation is completely healthy. Not by a long shot. Apparently, Derrick Henry is still out. Now, Alvin Kamara is out, and his backup Mark Ingram has been taken out of the game. Aaron Jones is out for another week, and Michael Carter was kicked out for week 12. With so many moving parts in a running position, it will be hard to find a leg up. There are still some options across the board.
10 running backs to take before the NFL fantasy football action in NFL Week 12.
10. James Robinson – Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has been one of the most inconsistent units in the NFL. One week, they’ll see they’re making something. Next week, it looks like it’s out of a horror movie. The key to driving Jaguar’s offense is James Robinson. If the engine is running in the backfield of the offense, then the offense is running in the field.
This week, the Jaguars are taking on the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are straight-up bad against running backs. When it comes to fantasy points, they allow more than 27 points per game, the fourth worst in the NFL. Robinson should find it easy to cut through this defense, even behind his offensive line.
