Week 12: vs Dallas Cowboys

All RB vs DAL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Patriots over the last two weeks seem to be conceding that Sony Michel may not be a lead back this year as Michel has just 14 carries total over the last two weeks. While there are reasons why the volumes were so low due to game script against Baltimore and a tough matchup against Philadelphia, the reality is that Michel just is not producing as he is averaging just 3.3 yards-per-carry on the season. This will likely be a committee type backfield that we have become accustomed to in New England where Michel still has the most carries, but Rex Burkhead and James White both take some of those carries away from Michel. The blame is not all with Michel, as the offensive line has forced the Patriots into a tough spot against the run as Matt Bitonti has this as the second-worst offensive line in football which is something that we typically never see from New England. On the year, Dallas has been in the middle of the pack in nearly every metric against the run. They are allowing 4.2 yards-per-carry and have allowed the 14th fewest yards per game this season. Overall, it's a good unit, but not a great one, and it has its weaknesses. The biggest weaknesses this year have been to speed running backs who can cut to the outside as Leighton Vander Esch and Sean Lee have struggled against the run this season which is a direct contrast of what we saw last year where Vander Esch was one of the top linebackers in the game. On the defensive line, the Cowboys look like they will have Demarcus Lawrence who is questionable, but it looks like he will be less than 100% this week as he is dealing with a neck injury. If Lawrence were to somehow miss, this matchup likely becomes a good one for New England, but for now, this is as an average of a matchup as they come.
