Week 7: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All RB vs CIN

FBG says: Tough matchup. It appears LeVeon Bell has finally broken out of his mini-slump. He erupted on a ho-hum Kansas City defense in Week 6, racking up 179 yards and 1 touchdown on 32 carries. That slow start is now a distant memory; since Week 3, he's third in the NFL in rushing yardage and tied for the lead in touchdowns. Bell isn't consistently dominating defenses, averaging just 4.10 yards per rush, his lowest mark in 4 years. Still, as a workhorse in every sense of the word, Bell will be a weekly candidate to lead the league in rushing, be it through volume, efficiency, or both. The Bengals have quietly assembled a borderline-dominant run defense. They've simply swarmed opposing lead backs; the 5 they've faced have averaged just 3.23 yards per rush and 49.8 per game. The line is designed to win at the point of attack, and the second level, led by explosive linebacker Vontaze Burfict, is precise and punishing. LeVeon Bell will be the best runner they've faced thus far, but they've given no indication they'll roll over for him. This should be a hard-fought battle, especially at the linebacker level.
