The Week 13 Running Back Rankings are here to help you make tough decisions this week. Whether it is deciding which of your options to start, or who you should be looking to pick up this week to cover your byes and injuries. Our team will be here the rest of the year ranking the offensive positions, defensive positions, and team defenses to try and help you win your fantasy football leagues.

Below the table, I’ll be highlighting some pick ups for this week (if they are still available) and sneaky-starts for your bye-week needs.

Jalen Richard, OAK vs KC

Last week, I discussed Richard as a nice low ranked sleeper. It did not go well. However, the high likelihood of catch-up mode offense against the Chiefs this week has him jumping out to me again, in the lower range.

I still believe he is the Raiders best pass catching back by far, and will treat last week as more of an anomaly than anything. I also give his upside a slight bump, with game script hero of the week potential.

Theo Riddick, DET vs LAR

Another tailback I’ve been discussing that has become completely game script proof is Riddick. With Golden Tate traded, Marvin Jones hurt, and Kerryon Johnson also limited from an injury, Riddick’s uptick in production is the result.

The last four games, he has averaged north of six catches, and 40 yards as Matthew Stafford’s new check down target. His rushing inability limits his upside, but his floor is much more appealing than touchdown dependent options in his range such as Adrian Peterson.

Similar to the Raiders, the Lions will undoubtedly be passing a lot late in their game against the Rams.

Good luck for Week 13! Follow me on twitter @realBobbyAdcock compliments and insults are greatly appreciated.

      AD or AP? If you’re talking about Adrian Peterson, I would still go with him over Theo because Peterson has the guaranteed volume. But, it’s close.
