Week 12 Half PPR Rankings

It's official, we have a timeshare with the Packers running backs, as it's been a 65/35 split over the last two weeks with both of them in the lineup. It does help that the Packers running backs have combined to average 30.3 touches per game, though. It also helps that the Bears offense has been bad enough to allow their opponents running backs to compile 28.6 running back touches per game, which is more than enough to do damage. The downside is that they've allowed the third-fewest points per opportunity to running backs this season and are fresh coming off their bye week. The Bears are also one of just four teams who've still yet to allow a receiving touchdown to a running back. That's been a contributing factor to them allowing just 1.22 PPR points per target to running backs, which ranks as the third-lowest number in the league. The only running back who's cracked 15 PPR points and finished better than the RB15 against the Bears this year was Alvin Kamara, who caught nine balls for 96 yards to go along with his 67 yards on the ground. He was the only running back who's topped four catches or 36 yards through the air against the Bears, too. Despite there being 11 different running backs who've tallied double-digit carries against them, just one running back (Ronald Jones) cracked the century mark, and he didn't even score. Jones is a must-play RB1 every week, but this may not be one of his bigger games. Williams will likely get 8-10 touches, though as we've discussed, they may not be worth a ton, making him a less-than-ideal RB4.
