Week 12: at Indianapolis Colts

All RB vs IND

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Titans own one of the most run-heavy offenses in the league with both Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry manning the backfield for most of this season. Murray has been battling through injuries but still continues to see nearly twice as many snaps as Derrick Henry has this season, with over twice as many snaps in their last three games since the bye week. Demarco Murray has yet to average above 3.0 yards per rush attempt in a game since coming off the bye week in Week 8 and has not crossed the 4.0 mark since Week 5. Murray has just one game with more than 60 rushing yards as his inefficiency combined with the workload split has really put a damper on Murray's fantasy ceiling. Derick Henry simply is not yet on the field enough to make an impact, and he is not used in the passing attack nearly as heavily as Murray. Marcus Mariota has played a big role in the Titans rushing offense when healthy as well. While he had a quiet week last week with just five yards, Mariota ran for his fourth touchdown of the season and has rushed for more than 20 yards in five of nine games started. The Colts roll out a rather talented defensive line anchored by Jonathan Hankins and Al Woods on the interior, but their results have been mediocre as they are around league-average in rushing defense categories. In terms of overall fantasy points allowed to running backs, this defense ranks fifth-worst, allowing over 25 points per game to the position in standard scoring formats. The eight rushing touchdowns allowed to running backs certainly doesn't help this lower-tier ranking. The Titans sport a run-heavy offensive approach, and they should be running often here between both Henry and Murray. While the Titans offensive line has struggled, they should still have a solid shot at winning this matchup in the trenches.
