Week 4: vs Carolina Panthers
All RB vs CAR
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. During Week Two, Devonta Freeman was more effective at running the football in Oakland (17/93/0 rushing, 5.5 yards per carry on average), but Tevin Coleman rang up the TD (12/46/1 rushing with 2/25/0 receving), leaving us pretty much where we started at the beginning of the week - a full-blown running back by committee with roughly equal touches for both players. The committee stomped New Orleans on Monday Night Football, posting a shattering 31/217/3 rushing as a team - Freeman ground out 14/152/0 rushing with five targets for 5/55/1 receiving, while Coleman blasted the Saints for all three rushing scores (12/42/3 rushing with three for 3/37/0 receiving. Freeman and Coleman were the top two receivers for Atlanta on Monday Night Football - they did it all during the big divisional victory.
The Panthers got surprised by the Vikings 10-22 during Week Three, but their rush D was stout with just 24/58/0 rushing allowed to Minnesota. To date the Panthers are tied at 11th in the NFL averaging 90.3 rushing yards allowed per game, with three rushing scores handed over to date. They are averaging 17 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing running backs, 15th-least in the NFL so far.
Freeman and Coleman ran wild against the horrid New Orleans' D, but they have a tougher assignment this week.
