Week 12: at Dallas Cowboys

All RB vs DAL

FBG says: Great matchup. The Chargers rushing attack on the season has been a roller coaster ride. Of the ten games that Melvin Gordon has played in, he has 54 yards rushing in five of those ten, and has scored a touchdown in five of those ten. While on the surface that seems ok, the real issue is that four of those five games overlap with each other, so if he does not go over 54 yards rushing, this rushing attack has a very difficult time getting anything going. Austin Ekeler has done a nice job as a change of pace running back to help this offense as well as a pass-catching option that Gordon was doing last year, but Gordon has struggled consistently catching passes this season as Gordon ranks fourth in the NFL in terms of drops this season. The Cowboys are hurting on the defensive side of the ball especially against the run with Sean Lee out as over their last two games with Lee out, the Cowboys have allowed 160 yards per game and two touchdowns in each of those two contests. It is no surprise that they have gotten better against the pass receiving running backs than what their season average is as Jaylon Smith is being asked to play a lot more with Lee out and while Smith is not great in run defense he is a very solid pass defender against the opposing running backs. Expect Melvin Gordon to have the potential for a very good game this week against this Cowboys team.
