Week 14: at Kansas City Chiefs

All RB vs KC

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Back in Week Six, K.C. defeated Oakland 26-10 - DeAndre Washington led the team in rushing with 10/49/0 (with one target for zero receptions) while Jalen Richard (4/7/0 with three targets for 2/5/0) and Derek Carr (3/8/0 rushing) chipped in during the absence of Latavius Murray. The Raiders didn't get much going in this phase of the game back in Week Six. Since Week Six, Latavius Murray as come back to the forefront of the Oakland rushing attack - over the last three weeks, Murray has handled 51/160/3 rushing and 14 targets for 11/125/0 receiving, while Jalen Richard has seen 19/78/0 rushing and three targets for 3/50/1 receiving as the second-busiest running back on the roster. Jamize Olawale (2/-3/0 rushing with four targets for 4/98/1 receiving) sees an occasional pass but otherwise this is an attack dominated by Murray as of Week 14. The Chiefs' rush defense averages 121.9 yards allowed per game (21st in the NFL) but has only coughed up six rushing scores this year (tied for third-least in the NFL). From Week 10 to Week 13 of regular season (the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on byes during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), K.C. averages 14.6 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (eighth-least in the NFL), even though Atlanta hung 30/128/2 rushing on their defensive front last week (the two rushing scores allowed was an outlier for Kansas City this year). This is a tough matchup for Oakland, especially since they are playing in Arrowhead Stadium this week on Thursday Night Football.
