Week 15: at Kansas City Chiefs
All RB vs KC
FBG says: Good matchup. Melvin Gordon has really struggled this season after a very promising 2016 breakout season the running back is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry on the year. The good news for Gordon is that the team is actually increasing his workload later in the season even though he has been struggling as he is averaging 22 touches per game over his last four games. This is a team that is going to commit to Gordon as long as they can as if they can get a consistent running game going they could be extremely dangerous come playoff time.
The Chiefs run defense is one that on the year are averaging allowing 4.1 yards per carry to opposing running backs and are allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. As of late, they have not fared any better as they were torched by Marshawn Lynch last week on just 7 carries he was able to run for 61 yards and a touchdown. This is a defense that has talent in Justin Houston and Chris Jones on the defensive line along with Reggie Ragland and Derrick Johnson at linebacker, but have gaping holes at every level. Things got worse for the Chiefs this past week as Steve Terrell who had filled in admirably at strong safety was placed on IR which means that Daniel Sorensen will once again move back into the base defense which has been a liability for the Chiefs this year in the running game.
