While the fantasy playoffs are just two weeks away, there are six teams on a bye this week, which means that finding value in your lineup is as important as ever. Here are three running backs with favorable matchups this week who should be must-starts in your lineup.
Fantasy football, Week 13: Best RB Matchups
Jaylen Warren vs. Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals just gave up 32.4 fantasy points to Kyren Williams last week which should be music to Warren’s ears. While Najee Harris is technically the Steelers’ No. 1 running back, Warren’s had double-digit touches over the last four weeks and has shown he can be explosive with the ball in his hands.
Bijan Robinson vs. New York Jets
Robinson had one of his best games of the season last week (120 all-purpose yards and a touchdown), and he should be able to put together another strong performance this week against the Jets. New York allowed 94 yards and two touchdowns to Raheem Mostert last week and should spend most of the game on the field thanks to their offensive struggles.
Derrick Henry vs. Indianapolis Colts
While Henry has looked mortal over the last month (he’s had just 138 yards rushing over his last week's games), he’s going against a Colts defense that’s allowed 15 touchdowns on the ground this season. Plus, he’s averaging 88.7 yards per game in his career against the Colts. King Henry should be back this week.
