    Week 16 – Running Back Rankings and Matchups – fantasy football advice 2012

    If you’re reading this, congrats! You most likely made the finals(unless you’re playing in a standard league with no playoff structure). You likely already know who your studs and duds are of 2012, yet every week still tosses you a few curveballs like Ryan Mathew’s broken collarbone in week 15. If you have any questions you would like to ask or answer, don’t hesitate to post them on the forums.

    Week 16 News and Notes – Running Back rankings and matchups

     Adrian Peterson- Peterson finally takes over the top spot of our Weekly Running Back Rankings in Week 16, as he will do whatever it takes to get to 2,000. You can bet the Vikings will give him as many carries as it takes, and so far he’s shown he can take it even coming off of ACL surgery. There’s a good chance that if you’re an Adrian Peterson owner, you’re in the finals, so keep him active in all formats as a RB1 in week 16.

    Knowshon Moreno- Moreno has solidified himself as a quality RB1 and should be plugged into all fantasy lineups. He has been a monster in terms of touches since taking over the job, and that usually leads to a ton of fantasy production as well. This week he gets that weak Cleveland run defense and if he’s on your team, you got the steal of the second half with your pickup.

    Bryce Brown- The biggest wildcard in the NFL right now is Bryce Brown. Personally, I would recommend against starting him if he’s on your team. He’s probably slowing down because he just can’t handle the workload, which is the case with a lot of NFL players. He’s good as a compliment to McCoy, but it seems like he just can’t handle a full workload yet.

    That’s it for our Week 16 Running Back Rankings, thanks for reading and congratulations on making the fantasy football playoffs.
