RB Kahlil Bell - Green Bay Packers
|6-0, 219||Born: 12-10-1986||College: UCLA||Drafted: ---|
Week 11: at Seattle Seahawks
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Aaron Jones continues to run wild as the Packers ground game has surpassed 100 rushing yards in three straight games since coming off their Week 7 bye. Prior to the bye week, the Packers offense has surpassed 100 rushing yards just twice, with Aaron Rodgers rushing for over 30 yards in both of those games. Now that the coaching staff is allotting meaningful snaps and carries to Aaron Jones, this ground game is flourishing. Jones was already leading the league with 6.0 yards per carry going into last week, and he has now raised that average to 6.8 yards per carry after rushing for a season-high 145 yards against the Dolphins last week. Jones has already matched his total rushing touchdowns (4) from the 2017 season and looks to have a much handle on this backfield given the departure of Ty Montgomery. Jamaal Williams was an afterthought in last week's game and has played second fiddle to Jones in the last three weeks. The risk of Williams continuing to be involved is still there though, as Mike McCarthy and this coaching staff certainly have an affinity for the services of Williams. With a healthy offensive line ranking well within the top-10 according to Footballguys offensive line specialist Matt Bitonti, this rushing offense, when led by Aaron Jones, should continue to roll. The Seahawks have faced a couple high-powered rushing offenses in a row, and they were vulnerable to both as they allowed nearly identical stat lines to both Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon, rushing for a combined 233 yards and two touchdowns. While Aaron Jones is not on the level of Gordon and Gurley, he does lead the NFL in yards per rush attempt with a top-10 offensive line leading the charge. The Seahawks have the personnel to contend against the run, especially with Bobby Wagner at linebacker. They should be outmatched in the trenches though, as left tackle David Bakhtiari has the talent to fend off Seattle's best defensive lineman Frank Clark while Center Corey Linsley has been blocking very well against tough interior linemen this season. While this is not a premium matchup for the Packers ground game, it certainly is not terrible given the strength of their offensive line.
