Week 14: at Kansas City Chiefs

All RB vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. The Ravens rushing offense has been elite since Lamar Jackson took over as the starter in Week 11. They've rushed for at least 200 yards in each game and are averaging 238.7 rushing yards per game in his three starts. Jackson has been a huge part of the success as he gives the defense an additional weapon to think about every time he lines up under center. His 265 rushing yards in his first three starts is the most by a rookie quarterback since 1970. Gus Edwards has also seen a big boost in production, handling at least 17 carries in each of Jackson's starts. With Alex Collins set to miss the remainder of the season, Ty Montgomery has emerged as the #2 back, handling 19 touches over the past two weeks. The Ravens offense has not only been more run-heavy but also more efficient with Jackson at the helm. Over the first 10 weeks, Baltimore was 31st in the NFL in yards per carry. Over the last three games, they've averaged an excellent 4.9 yards per carry. This is a unit that is much improved and Matt Bitonti has given this a significant cohesion and power rushing increase indicating the offensive line is vastly improving as well. Kansas City has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. The Chiefs allow the 22nd-most rushing yards (122 per game) and rank 31st allowing 5.1 yards per carry as their only way to stop the opponent from running is through the game script of getting out to a lead and have your opponent abandon the run. Kansas City struggled last week, allowing Doug Martin and Jalen Richard of the Raiders to combine for 156 rushing yards. The defense could soon receive a major boost when Eric Berry makes his season debut. He remains listed as questionable but his increasing practice participation means his return is imminent. This is a defense that desperately needs a playmaker as the Chiefs have a severe lack of talent at the linebacker position as Anthony Hitchens and Dorian O'Daniel have been two of the worst linebackers in football this season. Even with talent on the defensive line, the linebackers have not been in the position to clean up tackles at the line of scrimmage.
