Week 3: vs Denver Broncos

All RB vs DEN

FBG says: Bad matchup. This is still a strong unit, one that projects solidly in most generic matchups. All-Pro guard Marshal Yanda is returning from a lost 2017, and Marty Mornhinweg's offense is adept at creating blocking structures to maximize the talent. But there hasn't been much opportunity to find a groove here in 2018. Alex Collins remains the lead dog, boasting by far the most speed and elusiveness of the group. But few runners can excel without some sense of rhythm, and Collins is yet to see a neutral game script thus far. In more open-ended situations, he's shown the ability to both create splash plays and pace the running game overall - and he's only run behind Yanda for two games. When Javorius Allen steps in, though, much of that dynamism dissipates. Allen, a career 3.81-yard rusher per carry, has mustered just 25 on 10 rushes over the young season. This is a better unit than it's looked, but it needs real, fair-handed opportunity to showcase it. Denver's run defense remains generally stingy. They've allowed just a single runner (Kenyan Drake last season) to top 67 yards over their last 12 games, though they haven't exactly faced a Murderer's Row. There are holes to poke in their success, like the chunk runs that quicker backs (Drake, Jay Ajayi, Kareem Hunt, etc.) have been able to pick up. But on the whole, this is not an easy unit to establish a flow against. Their star-free line, anchored by the criminally underrated Derek Wolfe, controls the scrimmage action more often than not, and sure tacklers Brandon Marshall and Todd Davis are adept at keeping plays in front of them.
