Week 7: at Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

FBG says: Tough matchup. Doug Martin has returned to the lead role, but it's unclear whether he's a major upgrade over Jacquizz Rodgers. An inconsistent, one-dimensional back, Martin has averaged just 3.20 yards per rush over his last 10 games. He looked great 2 weeks ago against the Patriots' barely-there defense, but struggled mightily against the Cardinals in Week 6, gaining 3+ yards on just 5 of his 14 carries. There's no reason to believe Martin will lose snaps - Rodgers and third-down back Charles Sims are equally inconsistent producers - but it's hard to get excited about his ceiling. The Bills run defense remains a strong unit, even after buckling a bit to Tevin Coleman, Devonta Freeman, and the Falcons in Week 4. On the season, they've allowed the fifth-fewest yards to opposing running backs - only Coleman has topped 58 in any game - and the seventh-stingiest per-carry average. Besides, they got immediately on track by erasing the Bengals' rushing attack the next Sunday, and they enter Week 7 generally healthy. Nose tackle Kyle Williams and under tackle Marcel Dareus remain stout interior space-eaters, freeing up the team's mediocre linebackers to diagnose and chase after plays largely unimpeded.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 4 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Barber saw a few snaps in relief of Rodgers in the 3rd quarter, collecting 2 yards on 2 carries with no targets.

2017 Week 2 vs CHI (10 / 47 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Barber entered the game in the 1st quarter, giving Rodgers a breather from time to time. He received a more carries in the 2nd half as Tampa Bay built their lead, finishing the day with 10 carries to Jacquizz Rodgers' 19. Barber was not targeted in the passing game and will likely be just a special teamer once Doug Martin returns.
