Week 12: at Kansas City Chiefs

All RB vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. LeSean McCoy and the Buffalo run-blocking unit seem to have turned a major corner. New offensive coordinator Rick Dennison has imported his Arian Foster/Texans-style zone blocking scheme this season, and the early going was exceptionally rough - McCoy averaged just 3.21 yards per carry and 55.8 per game over the first 5 weeks. Since then, however, the unit has gelled significantly, and McCoy has posted marks of 5.18 and 86.0. With huge holes opening left and right - and McCoy running with the quickness and decisiveness of last year - this has become an explosive unit capable of either grinding games out successfully or overcoming game script with splash plays. We saw the former in Week 8 (27 rushes for 151 yards and 1 touchdown in a 34-14 win) and the latter last Sunday (13 for 114 and 1 in a 54-24 loss). In other words, McCoy appears back to a weekly RB1 outlook, and he's doing so even when he's not catching passes. As the explosive, unquestioned workhorse in a decidedly pass-first offense, McCoy's Week 12 outlook is as bright as the sun - and that's even before we consider Kansas City's sieve-like run defense. The Kansas City run defense has been utterly atrocious for most of 2017. It's allowed the league's fourth-most raw yards and yards per attempt, and it's done so with consistency - 9 of 10 opponents have landed between 104 and 194 ground yards. That's included some fairly toothless run games, and Kansas City has yielded big rushing days to the likes of LeVeon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott as well as Darren Sproles and Orleans Darkwa. The front seven is geared toward the pass rush and shaky at best in run support, and the loss of Eric Berry has left a relatively poor-tackling secondary. A volume-hogging feature back like LeSean McCoy always projects beautifully against this unit; we can all but pencil in an 80-yard floor.
