The NFL season has gone so fast as we’re already to Week 12. We saw four games ahead of Sunday with the Thanksgiving and Black Friday slate, so there aren't as many options to choose from for DFS on Sunday. Below we take a look at the top running back value plays for DFS in Week 12.

NFL DFS Picks, Week 12: RB value plays

Ezekiel Elliott, New England Patriots vs. New York Giants, $5,000

Elliott looked great last week. It was the second most carries that he’s received this year and he took advantage. On DraftKings fantasy, Elliott finished with 10.8 fantasy points. I expected the Patriots to ease him into action early in the year and take over down the stretch. It didn't look like that for a while but is starting to look like that could be the case.

Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals, $4,900

It has been a dreadful season for Harris and it’s been clear that Jaylen Warren is the more explosive back. However, it seems that the Steelers want to stick with Harris as they drafted him so high. Harris hinted at Matt Canada being a big issue for the offensive problems in Pittsburgh and now he is gone. In the first game without him, I expect a solid game from Harris.

Latavius Murray, Buffalo Bills vs. Philadelphia Eagles, $4,400

Murray is a great value play. He gets most of the goal line and he should. Between him and Cook, he is the power back and flourishes in this role. Murray is probably touchdown or bust, but it is worth it when you take into account how the Bills offense looked last week against the New York Jets. This is a big game for the Bills and they will need their top guys in every way.
