Week 12: 3 RB Studs/ 3 RB Duds

The NFL saw one of it’s finest weeks of action in Week 12. Fantasy owners have to be happy with the outcome put on display.

Fans got their popcorn worth in the Chiefs/Buccaneers game, while no bettor should have lost a dime in the Saints game. Unfortunately, Mark Whalberg was not available to go and try out for the Broncos QB spot.

All in all, we saw a lot of highlights come from the RB position. That’s where all the fantasy gold is. It’s imminent for champion success & the playoffs in the near future. And with the play-makers comes some negative outcomes.

With this being said, let’s get right to it. Let’s see which 3 RBs shined & which 3 half-backs had a day to forget.

James White-RB-New England Patriots


The Patriots all-purpose weapon at RB cashed in on 14+ points (PPR) for the second week in a row. Owned in just 40.9% of leagues, White poses as one of the top available waiver options.

White had 64 receving yards in Week 11 and then captured 2 rushing touchdowns in Week 12. His all-around talent makes him a tough player to sit, plus he tends to shine in the vital scenarios for New England.

Looking ahead–White faces off against a struggling, broken Chargers defense in Week 13 & then a Rams defense in Week 14 that allowed Raheem Mostert to have a fine welcome back moment in Week 12.
