With six teams on bye, the options at running back are limited and fantasy football managers may need to dig a little deeper to find players to plug into their lineup at running back or flex. These are three running backs that may be overlooked but could find themselves finishing inside the Top 24 in Week 13.
James Robinson (vs. Kansas City Chiefs)
The Green Bay Packers have no idea at this point what running backs might be available for them. On Wednesday, both Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillion did not practice due to injuries and they are question marks this week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
If both, or even one is inactive this week, then James Robinson, who was just re-signed by the Packers to their practice squad, could be a great dart throw this week against a Chiefs defense that has not played well against running backs the past few weeks. They are currently allowing the seventh most points to running backs and have given up three rushing touchdowns during this stretch.
The way to beat the Chiefs is to establish the run and keep Patrick Mahomes on the sideline and the Packers should look to utilize a similar gameplan. This has a chance for James Robinson to see his most carries of the season in a great matchup.
