Week 7: vs San Diego Chargers
All RB vs SD
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Devonta Freeman (12/40/0 rushing with five targets for 3/10/0 receiving) and Tevin Coleman (5/10/0 rushing with two for 1/7/0) had their feathers clipped by the Seahawks last weekend. Atlanta had a strong third-quarter comeback attempt fall just short in Seattle, but that was generated by the passing arm of Matt Ryan - the Falcons never established the run against the Seahawks in Week Six.
The Chargers' rush defense is worlds away from the Seahawks unit, however, currently averaging 1.3 rushing scores given up per game (eight allowed over six contests) while averaging 83.5 rushing yards allowed per game (fifth in the NFL). They are currently fourth-most-generous in the NFL averaging 24.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing running backs - dual threat backs who can catch the ball well (as both Freeman and Coleman do) are a problem for the Chargers. Devontae Booker had 5/46/0 rushing and two targets for 2/7/0 receiving at San Diego last week, while C.J. Anderson posted 10/37/0 rushing and five targets for 4/34/0 receiving.
This looks like a week for Freeman and Coleman to bounce back against the giving Chargers' defense.
