Week 15: at Minnesota Vikings

All RB vs MIN

FBG says: Tough matchup. Frank Gore is coming off a fantastic game against the Patriots that saw him rush 12 times for 92 yards, and catch one pass for 24 yards. This was Gore's second-highest rushing total of the season, and the only time in a game he's averaged seven yards per carry. Gore doesn't see enough volume to be a fantasy factor, but it is impressive that at his age, he's still averaging 4.7 yards per carry running behind an offensive line that has overachieved on its talent. Kenyan Drake has been battling a sprained AC joint in the shoulder which could have contributed to his light workload, as he saw only six attempts for 24 yards. He's the most explosive player on the Dolphins roster by far, yet Adam Gase has refused to give him the type of touches that would allow him to break big plays and turn a slow, plodding Dolphins offense into something much more modern. Drake made his case on the last play of the game, as he took a lateral from Parker (who had taken a lateral from Stills) 55 yards for the game-winning touchdown. It was the type of play that everyone and their mother know Drake is capable of, but it remains to be seen whether that play will have any lasting effect on how Gase uses him moving forward. The Minnesota Vikings defense ranks 13th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game at 108. Prior to last week's game against the Seahawks, the Vikings had ranked 5th in this category at 93.6 yards per game, but the Seahawks gashed them and racked up 214 rushing yards in the process. The Vikings defensive line has two run stopping studs in Sheldon Richardson and Linval Joseph and remain a top unit despite the hiccup last week, but continue to miss Eric Kendricks who is once again questionable at the linebacker position. This week they face off against a Miami offensive line that graded as out a bottom unit in the preseason but has played better than their talent suggests this season. Still, the Vikings defensive line has a clear advantage here, and without a consistent run game, the Dolphins are going to have a lot of difficulties moving the ball unless they can hit a big play against the weak linebacking group of the Vikings
