Week 13: vs New England Patriots
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. As the weather has gotten colder, Eddie Lacy has gotten hotter - 10/69/1 rushing with 3/45/1 receiving vs. Philadelphia two weeks ago, and then 25/125/1 rushing with 2/13/1 receiving at Minnesota last week. He's one of the best fantasy running backs in the league heading into Week 13 - start him if you've got him! The Patriots are 14th in the NFL in terms of rushing yards allowed per game (108.2), but they are tied for second-least in the category of rushing TDs allowed (five). Last week, Detroit could only muster three field goals (25/91/0 rushing) while two games back the Colts had a comical 16/19/0 rushing against this defensive front. This game goes down in partisan Lambeau Field which helps out Lacy, but this is still a tough matchup. In this case though, remember the fantasy football mantra 'always start your studs', unless you are absolutely loaded at running back - Lacy is too hot to sit right now.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 10 vs CHI (5 / 20 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
As is normally the case, Kuhn's primary job is to block. He got a few more carries than usual though, given the nature of the game and the removal of many skill position starters in the fourth quarter. He ran hard, as he always does, and did a good job gaining short amounts of yardage.
2014 Week 11 vs PHI (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kuhn stayed in to block on almost all of his offensive snaps, running the ball once for a short yardage gain.
2014 Week 12 vs MIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
As usual, Kuhn was mostly a blocker when he was on the field, but was targeted once on a short dump pass where he was free and able to move upfield after the catch for several extra yards.
