There are no byes in Week 12 of this NFL season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your team isn’t in need of a fill-in or two heading into likely pivotal Week 12 fantasy matchups. If you missed out on some priority fantasy football waiver additions and still need some help this week due to injuries or just some starters underperforming, then let’s talk about some Week 12 fantasy football RB streamers.
Pick the right fantasy football streamer option to get the win this week and continue down the path of fantasy greatness, which ends with you hoisting your league’s trophy, championship belt or champ chain.
Players must be owned in less than 60 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues to be included in the fantasy football Week 12 RB streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Fantasy Football Week 12 RB Streamers
Ty Chandler Fantasy Outlook (46.7%)
Ty Chandler was the headliner of this article last week, and he delivered with 73 rushing yards on 10 carries Sunday night. He also caught all four of his air targets for 37 yards. Chandler’s role should only continue to rise as he proves that he’s the best running back on the Vikings’ roster. With that, he’s a worthy flex candidate this week against the Bears.
Tyler Allgeier Fantasy Outlook (46.1%)
Tyler Allgeier has been in these articles on almost a weekly basis, and for good reason. He commands a 36% snap share and he averages 12.5 carries for just above 40 yards rushing per game. He also has viable usage in the passing game, as he has run 77 routes, being targeted on 22% of them.
Allgeier is a weekly flex option in fantasy football moving forward. He carries a safe floor as a running back in Arthur Smith’s offense.
Ezekiel Elliott Fantasy Outlook (34.7%)
Ezekiel Elliott is back in this article once again due to his ownership dropping considerably over the Patriots’ Week 11 bye. In Week 10 against the Colts, Elliott ran the ball 13 times for 54 yards and caught two passes for 34 yards.
The Patriots may not have much to play for, but Elliott is on a one-year prove-it deal. He has looked much better this season than people have expected, and I am willing to put him into lineups this week if I have a need at RB or Flex. He has a three-game touchdown drought that he is looking to end as well. Take a shot on the veteran running back as a fantasy football Week 12 RB streamers option.
