As is done every week of the NFL season, let’s take a look at the players who were productive in fantasy football during Week 12 despite being mostly unowned.

In order to be eligible for inclusion, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. One quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end are included. These are the top performers in PPR leagues who meet the criteria.

Let’s start off with a quarterback who was considered a failure in his first stop in Miami but has performed more than admirably since becoming a starter once again. Three rookies also find their way onto this week’s list.

1

Quarterback - Ryan Tannehill, Titans (259 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 40 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns, 1 fumble lost)

While he hasn’t been added by the masses, Tannehill now has multiple touchdown throws in four of his five starts. Week 12 marked the first time in his career that he ran for two scores.

2

Running back - Raheem Mostert, 49ers (45 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 1 reception, 22 receiving yards)

With Matt Breida out with injury (plus the 49ers winning in blowout fashion), Mostert received more playing time and scored his second rushing touchdown on the year late in the fourth quarter.
