RB Javon Ringer - Tennessee Titans
|5-9, 205||Born: 2-2-1987||College: Michigan State||Drafted: Round 5, pick|
Week 14: at Oakland Raiders
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Titans have one of the hottest rushing offenses in football over the past three weeks as they are simply rolling over opponents with an average of 201 rushing yards per game over that span. Derrick Henry has rushed for 149, 159, and 188 yards with five touchdowns in these past three games. He has broken at least one run of 30 or more yards in each of those games, but the big plays are only accentuating what has been a string of very dominant performances with consistently productive plays on behalf of Henry. He started the season as one of the least productive running backs on a per-carry basis, but Henry is yet again showing how he can excel late in the season as defenses are more worn down than they were to start the year. The Titans offensive line is playing tremendously as a run-blocking unit and ranks as one of the top tier offensive lines in the game according to Matt Bitonti of Footballguys. The Raiders run defense has actually been a solid unit despite the shortcomings of their passing defense. They are giving up a below-average 4.0 yards per rush attempt and the 12th-fewest rushing yards per game (103.6). Running backs have struggled to be productive on a consistent basis against this defense, as only two running backs have cleared 50 rushing yards against Oakland in the past five weeks. However, this group has also given up four rushing touchdowns to running backs over that while allowing over 100 rushing yards to Melvin Gordon in Week 10. Both Johnathan Hankins and P.J. Hall are their top run-stoppers on the inside, but the linebacker position poses a liability here--especially considering the Titans offensive line should have the edge in the trenches while Derrick Henry requires elite tacklers to bring him down at the second level.
