Week 12: vs Houston Texans

All RB vs HOU

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Ravens rushing attack has been a semi-productive attack all season, though nailing down opportunity has been tricky. And the unit was simply smothered in Week 11's win, "boasting" just 59 yards across 24 running back carries and a long run of just 9. Javorius Allen and Danny Woodhead are set as passing down backs who offer little ground impact, while early-season darling Alex Collins has hit a wall as lead runner, averaging just 3.85 yards per rush over his last 4 games. Generally speaking, game flow will determine the rushing outlook for this backfield each week, but the overall lack of talent caps the upside in even the sexiest of matchups. Collins remains worthy of a week-by-week look - he did average 6.44 yards per carry as a part-timer early in the year - but with bye weeks over, there's little reason to look at this unit for anything but receiving production. The Houston run defense remains the only real saving-grace unit on this decimated roster. Even with J.J. Watt sidelined, the Texans are exceptionally hard to run against: they're allowing just 3.67 yards per carry (3.46 to running backs) and have surrendered a league-low 3 ground touchdowns all season. They boast a strong, space-eating nose tackle in the emerging D.J. Reader, and appear to have found a second-round gem in linebacker Zach Cunningham, who's graded fantastically across the board in place of the suspended (and overrated) Brian Cushing. Not even script-granted volume has allowed Houston's opponents to produce solidly on the ground, and that's a trend that looks likely to continue against the Ravens' banged-up line and mediocre runners.
