Week 12 RB Rankings: Where do Josh Jacobs, Ezekiel Elliott, and Tony Jones Jr. rank this week?

Where do your fantasy football RB options fall in our Week 12 rankings? Which backs can you trust this week and who might be too risky?

What effect has having some top fantasy football RBs playing on Thursday had on the Week 12 rankings? Which players are a risk this week, and should you avoid any running backs playing on the short week? If so, who might be a safer option to turn to?

The below rankings are intended as a guide for half-PPR formats. They do not take into account individual league rules and setups. The Week 12 RB rankings are from Fantasy Analyst Tommy Garrett.

Update: The New Orleans Saints are expecting to be without Mark Ingram in Week 12. Tony Jones Jr.’s ranking below was with the expectation that Ingram would be active. Jones’ value increases significantly with this news.

Update: The Buffalo Bills are expected to make Zack Moss a healthy scratch. The rankings for Devin Singletary and Matt Breida were done assuming Moss would be active. Breida sees a significant rise in value with this news, but Singletary just sees a minor bump, if any at all.
