Week 11: vs Minnesota Vikings

All RB vs MIN

FBG says: Bad matchup. Even with game flow firmly on his side, Jordan Howard can't seem to generate much of anything as the Bears' power-running element. Howard remains the team's hammer back, but is now sitting on a woeful 3.36-yard average, and the Bears can't even count on him to kill clock effectively. He's producing just 51 yards a game despite solid volume, and he's been held below 40 in 4 of 9 outings. That's hardly the grinding presence Matt Nagy is asking of him. Rather, the Bears' only ground success has come from scatback Tarik Cohen and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Still, all of them face an uphill battle with their top lineman, Kyle Long, on injured reserve. It's likely not a coincidence that, since Long went down in Week 8, the trio has averaged just 112 yards on 49 rushes. Even with two key components (Everson Griffen and Anthony Barr) missing chunks of the year, the Vikings retain one of the NFL's stingiest run defenses. Through 9 games only Todd Gurley has topped 65 yards against them, and runners as a whole are averaging just 3.67 per attempt. Over the past 4 weeks they've thoroughly stifled the likes of David Johnson (18 for 55), Kerryon Johnson (12 for 37), and Alvin Kamara (13 for 45). Barr could return this week, rejoining a deadly front seven that includes dominant tackle play - both Linval Joseph and Sheldon Richardson could be All-Pros this year - and great defenders on the edges. Simply put, Jordan Howard's nightmarish 2018 doesn't look poised to turn itself around this week.
