Week 7: vs Oakland Raiders

All RB vs OAK

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Jamaal Williams returned from injury this past week and put on a show rushing for 104 yards on 14 carries as the Packers continue to try to run a split backfield with both Williams and Aaron Jones. This past week, the players were almost 50/50 on snap counts as Williams saw 39 snaps compared to Jones' 36, and as of now, this shared backfield continues to work. The last two weeks have been a significant improvement for this Packers offense and will need to rely upon this week as the team will likely be without two of their top wide receivers in Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison. Expect the Packers to continue to utilize the hot-hand making it difficult to project on a week-to-week basis who will be the top play of the backfield. The Raiders run defense has been a pleasant surprise so far this season in that they have allowed the 8th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs on the year, and outside of a game against Minnesota have not allowed a running back to rush for over 56 yards on the season. The one outlier is the Minnesota game in which Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison ran all over this defense rushing for 196 yards as a team. The way to beat this defense is off tackle, as up the middle this is a run-stopping unit that is incredibly solid led by Johnathan Hankins, P.J. Hall, and Tahir Whitehead. Hankins and Hall are run-stopping specialists who are big bodies that are difficult to move. On the outside, it is a unit that is not nearly as dominant as rookie Clelin Farrell and rookie Maxx Crosby have both struggled against the run. All-in-all this is one of the better units in football and should give this Packers rushing attack some problems this week if they keep playing the way that they have been so far this year.
