Week 12: at Atlanta Falcons
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Browns made a surprise move and released Ben Tate this week, making Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West the new 1-2 punch for the Browns' rushing offense. As of last week, Crowell had moved to the top of the running back rotation (14/61/0 rushing with 2/30/0 receiving vs. Houston, while West posted 5/12/0 rushing), but the coaching staff seems to assess their starting options each week based on who practices most impressively leading up to the weekend. At least there is one less cook in the kitchen for fantasy owners to worry over entering Week 12.
The Falcons' rush D is ranked 24th in the NFL in terms of rushing yards allowed per game (122.2), but they are tied for dead last in the NFL with 13 rushing scores handed out to date. Carolina managed 25/106/0 rushing vs. Atlanta last week, while Tampa Bay posted 23/92/0 rushing against this group two weeks ago. Of late, the Falcons have managed to tie off the bleeding of touchdowns to opposing backs, but they aren't shutting anyone down in this phase of the game.
