Week 7: at Buffalo Bills
All RB vs BUF
FBG says: Tough matchup. Doug Martin has returned to the lead role, but it's unclear whether he's a major upgrade over Jacquizz Rodgers. An inconsistent, one-dimensional back, Martin has averaged just 3.20 yards per rush over his last 10 games. He looked great 2 weeks ago against the Patriots' barely-there defense, but struggled mightily against the Cardinals in Week 6, gaining 3+ yards on just 5 of his 14 carries. There's no reason to believe Martin will lose snaps - Rodgers and third-down back Charles Sims are equally inconsistent producers - but it's hard to get excited about his ceiling.
The Bills run defense remains a strong unit, even after buckling a bit to Tevin Coleman, Devonta Freeman, and the Falcons in Week 4. On the season, they've allowed the fifth-fewest yards to opposing running backs - only Coleman has topped 58 in any game - and the seventh-stingiest per-carry average. Besides, they got immediately on track by erasing the Bengals' rushing attack the next Sunday, and they enter Week 7 generally healthy. Nose tackle Kyle Williams and under tackle Marcel Dareus remain stout interior space-eaters, freeing up the team's mediocre linebackers to diagnose and chase after plays largely unimpeded.
