Week 15: at Kansas City Chiefs - $4500

All RB vs KC

FBG says: Good matchup. The Broncos backfield has underwhelmed for most of this season as this rushing offense ranks slightly below average with 106.9 rushing yards per game and 4.2 yards per attempt. The tandem of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman have not combined for over 100 rushing yards since Week 9, and neither running back has rushed for more than 92 yards in a game this season. Lindsay has been the clear leader from a workload perspective, out-rushing Freeman 62-23 since their Week 10 bye. However, Lindsay has averaged a mediocre 3.8 yards per carry with just one touchdown (last week) over those last four games. He is getting the majority of the goal-line work and even had five red-zone looks last week though, which is encouraging. However, it is clear by now that the floor for Lindsay seems to be capped based on what should continue to be a low-upside offense unless Drew Lock manages to have a repeat performance from the flashes he showed against Houston last week. The Chiefs saw improved play from their otherwise bottom-of-the-barrel run defense last week as they limited the Patriots to just 94 rushing yards, of which running backs accounted for only 66 yards. Having a relatively healthy front seven certainly made this group look better in that game, but the game script also helped them as the Chiefs jumped out to a lead and had the Patriots into a pass-heavy script. Play from this defense throughout the season has been truly abysmal, as even with that nice game last week, they are still giving up the fifth-most rushing yards per game (137.7) and sixth-most fantasy points per game to running backs in their last four outings. Linebacker Reggie Ragland has been decent when given snaps against the run, but the rest of this linebacker group has struggled all season. The line has also been relatively porous beyond Chris Jones on the interior. This is a matchup in which even the lowly Broncos offensive line should contend enough to allow Phillip Lindsay to have a decent day.
