Fantasy Football Running Back Quick Picks for NFL Week 13

The Must-Starts for this week include:

Now to the rest of the players for Week 13:

LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia Eagles vs. Houston Texans): Should be a solid RB1 coming into this matchup. However, bear in mind that this could possibly turn into a passing game.

Matt Forte (Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions): Solid RB1, following the impressive performance against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Maurice Morris (Detroit vs. Chicago): Low-end RB1/high-end RB2 possibly.

Chris Ivory/Reggie Bush (New Orleans Saints vs. Cincinnati Bengals): RB3.  This running back committee isn’t doing any fantasy football owners any favors.

Cedric Benson (Cincinnati vs. New Orleans): High-end RB2.

Maurice Jones-Drew (Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans): Solid RB1, even against this defense.

Michael Turner (Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers): Solid RB1.

LaGarrette Blount (Tampa Bay vs. Falcons): Middle to high-end RB2.

Keiland Williams (Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants): Low-end RB2, given this offense and the Giants defense.

Ahmad Bradshaw (New York vs. Washington): Solid to high-end RB1.

Fred Jackson (Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings): Middle RB2 at best. He’s facing a defensive coordinator who likes to play it in the trenches and conservatively.

Brian Westbrook (San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers): Interesting matchup. Low-end RB1/high-end RB2.  Don’t deny his ability and his veteran knowledge, but be aware of his injuries in the past.

Brandon Jackson (Green Bay vs. San Francisco): High-end RB2.

Ronnie Brown/Ricky Williams (Miami Dolphins vs. Cleveland Browns): High-end RB2s at best.

Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers): Best of luck. Low-end RB2, given the anemic offense has been.

Knoshown Moreno (Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs): Solid RB2.

Jamaal Charles (Kansas City vs. Denver): High-end RB1.

Mike Tolbert (San Diego vs. Oakland): Solid RB1.

Steven Jackson (St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals): The workhorse RB1, and with Sam Bradford clicking, it only helps him.

Beanie Wells (Arizona vs. St. Louis): He’s like a box of chocolates, a RB3 and considering the St. Louis defense shut down McFadden last week, it’s safe to put him in that spot with a similar quarterback in Derek Anderson.

Jonathan Stewart (Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks): Potential RB1 in the making, if he can remain healthy against this matchup.

Marshawn Lynch (Seattle vs. Carolina): Would-be, could-be but he isn’t.  A RB3.

Felix Jones/Tashard Choice (Dallas Cowboys vs. Indianapolis Colts): Solid RB1 for Jones, and high-end RB2 for choice, given his goal-line touches.

LaDanian Tomlinson (New York Jets vs. New England Patriots): Low-end RB1 at best.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (New England vs. New York): Low-end RB1 at best.
