Top RBs To Start in Week 13

Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams

Fantasy managers had questions about whether or not they could start Kyren Williams in his first game back off of injured reserve. I gave the stamp of approval in my last-minute advice column on Sunday morning.

However, I did not anticipate a 200+ total yard and two-touchdown performance from the second-year RB against the Arizona Cardinals. Williams was utterly dominant, and he’s showing that many people who doubted him after his poor NFL Combine performance were completely wrong.

He has a tough matchup in front of him in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, but when he’s putting up this type of production and seeing the amount of volume that he is, it almost doesn’t matter. Fire Williams up with confidence.

Jaylen Warren, Pittsburgh Steelers

We had some reports circulating on Sunday morning that the Pittsburgh Steelers would look to give Jaylen Warren even more opportunity now that Matt Canada had been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator. However, Warren didn’t see a massive increase in volume from what he had in previous weeks.

This may cause some fantasy managers to be concerned about plugging Warren back into starting lineups again this week, but he needs to be viewed as a solid start due to the matchup against the Cardinals.

We just saw Williams and the Rams torch this defense, and the Steelers are finally moving the ball down the field. He’s in my starting lineups for Week 13.
