Week 12: vs New England Patriots
All RB vs NE
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Broncos have a replacement quarterback under center again this week - last week, in Brock Osweiler's first start, Ronnie Hillman did well with a renewed credible threat to pass in the offense, posting 21/102/0 rushing with 1/2/0 rushing, while C.J. Anderson also played well, with 12/59/0 rushing and 2/13/0 receiving. We'll see if they can maintain those levels of production now that teams have some tape of the Broncos' offense with Osweiler running the show.
The Patriots held off Buffalo though they gave up 30/94/1 rushing to their rivals. Two weeks ago, the Giants had 23/80/0 in this phase of the game. To date, the Patriots are ranked second in the NFL averaging 88.8 rushing yards allowed per game, with five rushing score handed over so far. Over the past four weeks (four games), this rush D has allowed the eighth-least fantasy points to opposing running backs (12.7).
This is a tough matchup for Hillman and Anderson.
