All RB vs DET
FBG says: Good matchup. The Vikings looked very sharp on the ground last week against a tough Rams run defense as they averaged nearly five yards per carry for 171 total rushing yards. Latavius Murray has been up and down this year, but he has kicked it into another gear for fantasy purposes in recent weeks. Over his last four games, Murray has scored four touchdowns while averaging just under 80 yards and 17 rush attempts per game. Over this four-game span, Murray ranks as the sixth highest scoring running back in standard formats. He is not providing much upside on the passing attack, but he has been a solid contributor with great volume from a pure rushing perspective. Jerick McKinnon has been much less reliable rushing the ball. Despite out-snapping Murray in every game this season, McKinnon is still consistently seeing fewer rush attempts in each game. He has not averaged more than 3.6 yards per carry in the last four games despite receiving 10 or more carries in each outing.
The Lions were gashed on the ground for the second straight week as the Bears running backs racked up 169 rushing yards and two touchdowns on just 24 carries last week. Running backs have definitely found success against this defense, amassing the fourth-most fantasy points per game while racking up nearly 100 rushing yards and one touchdown per game on average. This defensive front has really played poorly in recent weeks. Jarrad Davis got off to a hot start this season, but his play has really fallen off a cliff recently. The Lions have also notably allowed opposing quarterbacks to rush for over 50 yards in back to back weeks, with Brett Hundley rushing for 22 yards and a touchdown three weeks ago. Case Keenum is not known for his legs, but he can certainly tuck it and run when needed. Latavius Murray should also be looking to take advantage of the reeling Lions front seven as he should lead the Vikings backfield this week.
