Week 3: at Green Bay Packers

All RB vs GB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The committee approach continued in Week 2 for the Broncos backfield with Phillip Lindsay rushing 13 times compared to 11 carries for Royce Freeman while splitting snaps nearly half and half. Freeman was the more productive rusher for the second straight week, gaining more yards than Lindsay despite fewer opportunities. Freeman was actually more productive in the passing game last week as well, which could lead to additional snaps if he can keep up that momentum. As of now, however, this backfield has to be considered a pure committee with as even a split as you will find, making it tough to rely on either running back for a high ceiling fantasy output. What further dampens the upside of this rushing offense is the poor play by their offensive line. Left tackle Garrett Boles gave up numerous pressures while being called for five holding penalties in last week's game alone. With starting right tackle Ja'Wuan James still sidelined with a knee injury, this offensive line continues to be ranked near the bottom of the league. The Packers run defense had a tough time against the Vikings, giving up a total of 198 rushing yards and a touchdown. That touchdown was a 75-yard run by Dalvin Cook, who finished with 154 rushing yards from 20 attempts. While Kenny Clark continues to be impressive on the interior of this line, the rest of the Packers defensive interior had a rough time against a very much improved Vikings offensive line last week. Linebacker Blake Martinez had all he could handle but did play well despite the end result as he was picking up after his defensive line being thrown around in the trenches. This Packers defense has the talent to put up a fight against the run, they just did not coalesce in last week's game. The Broncos subpar offensive line should be expected to struggle in what could be a bounceback performance for a talented Packers defense.
