All RB vs OAK
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Broncos rushing attack is one that the collective unit has been serviceable, the individual parts have all struggled this season. The challenge from a fantasy perspective is that the Broncos are a true running back by committee rushing attack that John Elway has gone as far to label the team soft and the lack of running identity is a big part of this. The running game is led by C.J. Anderson who has only gone over 13 carries once in his last six games and has only scored one touchdown over his last eight games. Devonta Booker appears to be gaining traction in this offense, but he has shown much like he did last week that whenever he gets a high number of touches his yards per carry falls below league average and perhaps he is best utilized as a change of pace type runner.
The Raiders rush defense has been in the middle of the road this season as they have allowed 113.8 yards per game which ranks as the 17th run defense in football. This is a defense that while their defensive line has been average, their linebacker group has been atrocious. This is a team that if you get to their second level, can be exploited as Navorro Bowman is on his last legs of his NFL career and while he can still make plays when he is unblocked if this Broncos offensive line can put a body on Bowman he is no longer the block shedding linebacker that he once was.
