Week 12 is in the books.  Thankfully is was a bit more predictable than what week 11 was.  With my prediction mojo back on track, I’m happy to give you my top 5 fantasy RB’s of week 13 5.  Jamaal Charles Jamie Squire/Getty Images North America The only reason I’d be hesitant to start Charles this week is because of the inconsistency of carries he’s given.  When he does get his carries, he does work.  Charles also has an advantageous match coming up with the Panthers.  After seeing what Eagles’ Bryce Brown did to them, I’d feel very comfortable in starting Charles this week.  The rewards always seem to outweigh the risks with him. 4.  Adrian Peterson REUTERS/Eric Miller Peterson continues to amaze me.  He does not look like a running back coming off of knee surgery.  Not even the tough-nosed Chicago Bears could stop AP from getting his 6th straight game of over a hundred yards.  If Peterson is healthy for your upcoming week, start him.  All day, everyday.  Stamp it. 3.  C.J. Spiller Gary Wiepert, AP I’m not too sure why Spiller continues to lose carries to the banged up Fred Jackson, but it’s been reported that the Spiller/Jackson carry ratio will be 60/40.  This is enough for Spiller to break out of this game as he runs through the 5th most generous team to running backs, the Jaguars.  Spiller still has a league best 6.7 yards per carry.  C.J.’s numbers will be up there for week 13. 2.  Frank Gore AP Frank Gore will probably have a better outing if Alex Smith starts.  Colin Kaepernick will make a run for the end zone when near, taking away from Gore’s numbers.  Nevertheless, Gore is still a crucial part of the offense and is one of the main reasons why the 49′ers are where they are.  You can still count on his to put some yards down on the ground, and hopefully pay dirt. 1.  Arian Foster As a writer, Arian Foster makes me feel lazy.  I do feel the need sometimes to shake these fantasy pieces up a bit and provide some air time for new faces.  This list however is not a top 5 at all without Foster in it.  And so it is Foster who makes a number 1 appearance once again, and the reasons are typical.  He most certainly bounced back from his poor outing against Jacksonville and made the Lions pay on Turkey Day, and I don’t see it slowing.  Foster will face off against the Titans who are allowing an average of 20.4 yards per game.  With Tennessee hosting the one of the best running backs in the league, it could be a long day for the Titans.
