As we have done every week since the start of the season, let’s take a look at the players who performed well despite being mostly unowned in fantasy football.

For the player to be eligible to be included, he must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. Each week, there will be one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end highlighted.

This week’s list is heavy on the Vikings’ passing game.


QB - Kirk Cousins, Vikings (307 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 19 rushing yards, 1 fumble lost)

For the second straight week, Cousins is the quarterback here as he has back-to-back games with 300+ passing yards and three passing touchdowns. He last accomplished that in Weeks 6 and 7 of last year (threw for four scores in both games).


RB - Ito Smith, Falcons (65 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 4 receptions, 10 receiving yards)

Brian Hill was the running back added by most after news of Todd Gurley being unavailable for Week 12 hit, but Smith had the more productive game. He scored his first touchdown of the season early in the fourth quarter to expand on Atlanta’s commanding lead over the Raiders on Sunday.
