Week 14: vs Baltimore Ravens - $

All RB vs BAL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Since returning from injury in Week 8, Devin Singletary has assumed the starting role in Buffalo's high-volume rushing attack already in just his rookie campaign. Since returning to action, Singletary has played at least two-thirds of the Bills' offensive snaps in every game, totaling at least 14 carries in 4 out of 6 those games. Buffalo's offense as a whole has tallied the fifth-most rushing attempts in the NFL, which is partially a product of quarterback Josh Allen's propensity to scramble on designed passing plays, but it also represents the team's general offensive strategy. Frank Gore, now in his 15th professional season, typically hovers around 10 carries per game, poaching a significant amount of work away from Singletary and keeping him from true bell-cow status. Overall, Buffalo's rushing attack is a high-volume unit led by an uber-efficient rookie running back, Devin Singletary, who averages over 5.5 yards per carry thus far in the 2019 campaign. Baltimore's defense has faced the least rushing volume in the NFL, as they typically drain the clock with their high-volume rushing offense that lights up the scoreboard. The lack of volume has preserved the sixth-best defense in the NFL in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing running backs, but their efficiency totals have been unimpressive. The Ravens have allowed over 4.5 yards per carry this season, the 22nd-best mark in the league, while also allowing 11 touchdowns, ranking 18th in the league. Along the defensive line, Brandon Williams dominates along the interior as one of the league's best run-stoppers. Then, at the second-level, Josh Bynes, who has been limited by some injuries this season, has returned to the Ravens and continued to be one of his team's most-valued run defenders. On the season, the Ravens have allowed 3 different 100-yard rushers, including 2 in their last 4 games. When the opposition has attempted to establish a rushing attack early, they have found success against Baltimore's susceptible run defense. However, that is easier said than done, as teams frequently find themselves playing from behind with little time to spare before they get the chance to try to run the football. Expect Devin Singletary to lead the way in the backfield for Buffalo, as their run-heavy offense attempts to keep up with Baltimore's league-leading attack. Overall, it will likely be a comparatively low-volume day on the ground for the Bills' running backs, stacking the odds against Buffalo's rookie running back posting his second career 100-yard game.
