Here are my Top 30 options at the position this week.
FULL TOP 30 WEEK 12 RANKINGS BELOW
Gordon is my top back in Week 12 with a matchup against the Arizona Cardinals, a unit allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. The Los Angeles Chargers star has scored in seven of his nine games this season. He also has more than 100 yards from scrimmage in six consecutive games. Gordon is in for a monster showing.
Kamara lands at No. 4 in my rankings. The New Orleans Saints star has an amazing matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, a unit allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Kamara has scored in five consecutive games and has at least 100 yards from scrimmage in three consecutive games. He is an elite RB1 down the stretch.
Mixon is my No. 8 running back for Week 12. The Cincinnati Bengals star is another elite RB1 down the stretch. He only had 14 yards on the ground in Week 11, but should go off against the Cleveland Browns, a unit allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Start Mixon with confidence here as he should get a huge workload.
Chubb is my No. 9 option at running back this week. The Browns star also has a good matchup against the Bengals, a unit allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Chubb is a matchup-dependent RB1 down the stretch. The rookie plowed for a season-high 176 rushing yards and a score in Week 11 and should produce another solid day in this AFC North bout.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack is my No. 11 option at the position for Week 12. Mack has five scores in his last four games. This week he faces the Miami Dolphins, a unit allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Mack is an RB1 this week and a likely RB2 option down the stretch.

Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards emerged in Week 11 with 115 yards and a score on 17 carries against the Bengals. He is my No. 20 option and an RB2 this week against the Oakland Raiders, a unit allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Edwards is a big-time waiver wire pickup for this point in the season and could help you reach the playoffs or provide solid depth for a late push.
