Week 12: vs Tennessee Titans

All RB vs TEN

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Colts own one of the league's worst rushing offenses on paper this season, ranking 24th in rushing yards per game (95.9) and 29th in rushing yards per attempt (3.5). Colts running backs are actually averaging less than 3.5 yards per attempt combined, as quarterback Jacoby Brissett alone is averaging over four yards per carry with three rushing touchdowns on the year. The veteran Frank Gore has always been known as a grinder, and he has notably out-touched the hot rookie Marlon Mack in recent weeks despite a fairly similar amount of snaps. Mack has really struggled in recent weeks as he has only managed 63 rushing yards on 27 carries over his last three games. While Mack may be the future of this Colts backfield, it appears they will be riding Frank Gore for the present time with Mack sprinkled in for single-digit carries in each game. Either way, this is not a backfield to target often for fantasy purposes as they run behind an offensive line that has struggled to block all season. The Titans defense has been tough on the run all season, allowing just under 90 rushing yards per game and 3.6 yards per rush attempt. An opposing running back hasn't gained more than 50 yards against them in the last five games, including LeVeon Bell, as he was held to just 3.8 yards per attempt for 46 rushing yards last week. Jurrell Casey is the anchor of this rushing defense, and he continues to play at a high level. Both linebacker Wesley Woodyard and safety Kevin Byard have made great contributions in defending the run this season as well. With as poor as the Colts offensive line has played, this is not a matchup that they should win by any means.
