Week 14: at New England Patriots

All RB vs NE

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Chiefs running back situation continues to be a revolving door as Darrell Williams was injured early in the game last week with a knee and hamstring injury that will likely keep him out this week. Damien Williams looks like he also is unlikely to play with a rib injury leaving just LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson as the two running backs for the Chiefs. This caused the Chiefs to go out and sign Spencer Ware this week. Ware who knows the offense after spending the last four years in Kansas City should be able to immediately come in and contribute after the Chiefs. It will likely be a rotating backfield as LeSean McCoy just does not look like he can handle a workload any longer after having just five carries for 10 yards last week, and Darwin Thompson has just 16 career carries with 11 of them coming out of necessity last week. The Patriots run defense outside of a few performances has held opposing running backs in check as they have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs on the season. They did a tremendous job shutting down Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson holding the pair of running backs to just 53 yards on 19 carries. This has been a theme for the Patriots as they are near dominant against average to below-average run games as they have only allowed five running backs to rush for over 40 yards. When the Patriots want to sell out to shut down the run particularly in the red zone they are one of the best at it as they have only allowed one rushing touchdown on the season. This is by no means a dominant defense as they have allowed 4.4 yards-per-carry on the season, but where they have been vulnerable have been in games that they have in control such as the Jets, Bills, or Browns this season and teams committing to the run while the Patriots have their dime prevent defense to stop the pass.
