Week 14: vs New York Giants

All RB vs NYG

FBG says: Tough matchup. Jordan Howard, Philadelphia's original lead-back, has yet to be cleared for contact due to a shoulder injury that has kept him out since Week 9. Should he find himself inactive once again in Week 14, rookie Miles Sanders should continue on as the team's bell-cow running back. If he returns to action, expect Howard to play close to 50-percent of the team's offensive snaps while leading the team in carries and rushing yards, as he did for much of the start of the season. Overall, Philadelphia runs the ball in high volume, totaling the 7th-most rush attempts of any team in the league, but their efficiency totals lag behind where one may expect given their impressive personnel in the trenches. Philadelphia fields the league's strongest offensive line, according to FootballGuys' offensive line analyst, Matt Bitonti, yet their running backs average just 4.3 yards per carry, good for 18th in the league. If Howard is inactive, leaving Sanders in his bell-cow role from weeks past, the rookie running back could be in for a high-volume day on the ground, as the Eagles are heavy favorites come Monday night. However, if Howard is active, the requisite volume may not be available to support multiple viable fantasy backs, leaving Howard as the lone reasonable option from their backfield. New York's defense, despite facing the third-most rushing attempts of any team in the NFL, has posted impressive efficiency totals this season, ranking 6th in the league in yards per carry allowed. The incredible rushing volume has led to 13 rushing touchdowns allowed on the season, the 6th-most in the league, which drags down the defense's overall rankings from a fantasy perspective. Through 12 games, the Giants allow the 19th-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, which is certainly a respectable total given the number of rushing attempts this unit has had to defend. The definitive strength of this unit is in the trenches, where rookie Dexter Lawrence has made an immediate impact as one of the league's best run-stopping interior lineman. Alongside Lawrence, B.J. Hill also grades as an elite run-stopper in the trenches stuffing running lanes and stifling opposing rushing attacks before they can get going. Then, at the second and third levels, David Mayo and Antoine Bethea make up for their weaknesses defending the pass by contributing as top-flight run-stoppers. Both players rank amongst the league's best run-defenders as their respective positions, and their presence is vital to shutting down rushing attempts if they do break through the first level of New York's defense. In sum, Philadelphia's relatively-high-volume rushing attack is unlikely to see a spike in efficiency this weekend, even if they increase their volume if they gain a lead on the struggling New York Giants. Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard may tally a high number of carries on Monday night, but without a large chunk play on the ground, they are unlikely to post impressive efficiency numbers against the Giants' strong run defense.
