Week 3: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All RB vs JAX

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Javorius Allen was a healthy scratch in Week One, leaving the backfield to be split between Terrance West (12/32/0 rushing with two targets for 2/6/0 receiving) and Justin Forsett (10/41/0 rushing with three targets for 3/15/0 receiving). And split it was, almost exactly 50/50 - neither guy was the lead back vs. Buffalo. During Week Two it was more of the same, with West seeing 11/42/0 rushing and three targets for 1/15/0 receiving, while Justin Forsett handled 14/37/0 rushing and five targets for 3/9/0 receiving. Allen wasn't involved during the second game, either. In this committee neither back is scoring gobs of fantasy points so far. The Jaguars' rush defense averages 122.5 rushing yards allowed per game after two contests (tied for 26th in the NFL) with two rushing scores surrendered to date. They are 10th-most-stingy with fantasy points to opposing running backs so far, averaging 15.8 fantasy points allowed per game. Last week, the Chargers blew up for 35/150/1 rushing as a team against the Jaguars - they are heading in the wrong direction in this phase of the game. Advantage, Baltimore - but remember the split workload is diminishing the fantasy outcomes for both lead backs.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs CLE (14 / 37 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 9 / 0 rec)

Justin Forsett again split carries and catches with Terrence West as the only two active running backs for the Ravens. The Ravens used the two backs interchangeably; trusting both catching the ball, in pass protection and in short yardage and goalline situations. The Ravens run game appears to lack confidence. The Ravens continue to use Forsett on pitch plays to the outside that are highly ineffective instead of running between the tackles. Forsett started the game and saw significantly more touches than West in the first half but failed to impress.

2016 Week 1 vs BUF (10 / 41 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Justin Forsett was the Ravens starting running back but West and Forsett had nearly identical numbers in terms of touches and snaps. The two backs combined for 27 touches and nearly 100 total yards but it was a disappointing day for the Raven's ground game. Forsett made numerous nice runs to the outside but was unable to break into the open field. The Bills defense looked strong against the run and never allowed the run game to find its rhythm. Expect the Ravens to stay committed to the running the football and more efficiency from the backs.
