Week 12: at Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Phillip Lindsay continues to lead the Broncos backfield as he rushed 16 times for 64 yards in last week's loss to the Vikings. Pre-game reports indicated Lindsay could be in for a massive workload last week, but he still only out-carried Royce Freeman 16-to-8 despite playing a season-high 64 percent of the snaps. Lindsay has been productive with his mediocre volume this season, but he has yet to have any particularly massive games as he has crossed the 90-yard mark just twice this season. Lindsay is averaging no more touches now than he did earlier in the year, and he continues to split time with Freeman even in the red zone, as both saw two red-zone looks last week. Freeman certainly is the second option on the ground for the Broncos and has been far less efficient than Lindsay in recent weeks. Freeman has averaged fewer than four rush attempts per game in each of his last five games while Lindsay has averaged 5.0 yards per rush attempt over that same span since Week 6. The offensive line for Denver continues to be a weak spot, especially with right tackle JaWuan James still sidelined. They rank amongst the bottom of the league in yards generated before contact and near the top of the league in offensive holding penalties. The Bills defense had a season-best outing last week as they shut down the Miami ground game, allowing just 23 rushing yards from 13 attempts. That performance was the definition of an outlier though, as this group had played very poorly leading into last week. In the four games prior to Week 11, the Bills had given up 5.4 yards per carry and over 95 rushing yards to three separate running backs. This defense is loaded with talent, but they simply lack run-stopping specialists on the line to clog things up when facing interior runs. Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds continues to play well while their safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer offer solid support up top, but this group still has given up nine runs of 20 or more yards (T-3rd most) despite that talent on the second level. Both Lindsay and Freeman should have a decent shot at being productive this week, but they still remain hamstrung behind a below-average offensive line that should actually have a disadvantage this week.
