Week 7: vs Baltimore Ravens
All RB vs BAL
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. The Jets' backs were ineffective on Monday Night Football, with 9/19/0 rushing and three targets for 1/3/0 receiving for Matt Forte, and 3/10/0 rushing with four targets for 3/12/0 receiving flowing to Bilal Powell. Of course, the Jets only scored three points all night, which limited the opportunities for everyone on the offense from a fantasy perspective. One interesting item to note - Powell was on the field much more (39 snaps for Powell, 21 for Forte) than Forte at Arizona, and we may be seeing a changing of the guard there - at least, it looks like the Jets are moving to a full-blown committee between Forte and Powell. We'll see if the offense can regroup at home.
The Ravens' rush defense allowed a mere 17/38/0 rushing to the Giants' running backs last week, and Washington managed 20/60/0 rushing at Baltimore two games ago - they have been shutting down opposing backs in October, folks. From Week Four to Week Six of regular season (the last three weeks), Baltimore averages 10 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (second-least in the NFL). They are now first in the NFL averaging just 69.7 rushing yards allowed per game, with only two rushing scores handed over to date. Even though Terrell Suggs tore a biceps last week and may not play in this game (or any other this season), the Ravens' rush defense is still formidable in this phase of the game.
This is a bad matchup for the grounded Jets' backs.
