Week 11: vs Denver Broncos

All RB vs DEN

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Vikings rushing offense overall ranks third in the league with 153 rushing yards per game as Dalvin Cook is having an MVP-caliber season. Cook leads the league in rushing attempts (203) and rushing yards (991), averaging 4.9 yards per rush with 10 rushing touchdowns--third-most in the league. He has rushed 20 or more times in four straight games and in 7-of-10 outings this season, failing to score a touchdown in just two games this season. This entire Vikings offense runs through Cook for good reason as he has looked like one of the best pure rushers in the league this season. Alexander Mattison continues to be marginally involved spelling Cook, rushing eight times for 52 yards last week as he has crossed the 50-yard mark five times this season despite playing a clear second-fiddle to Cook while having yet to play on more than a third of the snaps in a game. The offensive line continues to excel in run-blocking while struggling against the pass. Right guard Josh Kline exited the game early last week with a concussion, so his status will be in question coming into this week. His absence would be a blow to this group, as backup Dakota Dozier has been a clear downgrade during the instances in which he has filled in throughout this season. The Broncos defense has been decent overall against the run since their Week 4 implosion against the Jaguars. In their last five games, they have allowed only one rushing touchdown and the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game (non-PPR scoring) to opposing running backs. That span of games included holding the likes of Melvin Gordon, Derrick Henry, and Nick Chubb all to fewer than 3.3 yards per carry with no touchdowns. This group has the pieces to maintain their success against the run, including a deep defensive line, a pair of excellent run-defending safeties, and what has been one of the most fruitful mid-season additions in football in A.J. Johnson--who has come on as an excellent run-defending linebacker after getting his first chance to start in Week 5. The elite Vikings rushing offense should have their hands full in this one.
