Week 13 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Christian McCaffrey is on bye this week, which would normally be a big deal, but considering how much time he’s spent on the IR this year, he’s not exactly “missed” in our Week 13 fantasy RB PPR rankings. Still, not having Panthers and Buccaneers backs — as well as several injury/COVID concerns — hurts the running back depth overall. Fortunately, there is also a notable group of injured RBs ready to return to action, so there is no shortage of start ’em, sit ’em options and potential sleepers.

Chris Carson (vs. Giants), Raheem Mostert (vs. Bills), and Austin Ekeler (vs. Patriots) returned in Week 12 and will solidify the borderline-RB1 range. Myles Gaskin (vs. Bengals), D’Andre Swift (@ Bears), David Johnson (vs. Colts) look set to return this week, and all should be in fantasy lineups, as well.

However, there are a few key players who could remain out of action. James Conner and Jonathan Taylor were put on the COVID list late last week, so they figure to be quarantining this week. Todd Gurley (knee) also may not be able to play, so the likes of Benny Snell (vs. Washington), Jordan Wilkins (@ Texans), Nyheim Hines (@ Texans), and Brian Hill (vs. Saints) will be on the rise in Week 13.

As usual, there are a handful of sleepers who really rise in PPR formats, including J.D. McKissic (@ Steelers), James White (@ Chargers), and Chase Edmonds (vs. Rams). It’s worth noting, though, that several other “PPR backs” have ascended to bigger roles, with Hines (@ Texans) and D’Andre Swift (@ Bears) essentially becoming starters. Cam Akers (@ Cardinals) has also been playing more lately and has the potential to be a big PPR contributor if given the chance. 

Some power backs, like Damien Harris (@ Chargers) and Wayne Gallman (@ Seahawks, lose a little bit of value in PPR, but given how many scoring chances they get, they still are worth starting. Even someone like Frank Gore (vs. Raiders) has more value than you might think in PPR, as he hauled in all three targets last week in addition to 18 carries. 

Reminder: As always, we expect to make plenty of changes to these RB PPR rankings throughout the week, so check back for updates.
