Week 6: vs Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

FBG says: Good matchup. The Texans have yet to solve their offensive line woes, and they're still trotting out one of the league's weakest units. As a result, neither Lamar Miller nor Alfred Blue is able to accomplish much beyond running into the line and closed-off stretch lanes. Blue, a one-speed grinder with almost no elusiveness, is especially hurt by the lack of a line, and when he's forced into a workhorse role there's not much firepower in this backfield. The team desperately needs back Miller, who hasn't been efficient as a Texan, but at least offers quick, slippery feet at times. This is such an inconsistent backfield that the most consequential element is quarterback Deshaun Watson, who's run for at least 36 yards in each game thus far. In typical game scripts, the Buffalo run defense is one of the NFL's weaker ones. They smothered the Vikings in Week 3's big upset, but otherwise have been worked over to various degrees, dating back to last season. Over their last 15 games, they've allowed opposing runners to average 4.58 yards per carry, and 12 have racked up 74 yards or more. There's been improvement from last year's overwhelmed unit, as they've managed to shut down the likes of Melvin Gordon and Dion Lewis. But they've also been gashed by quick runners Austin Ekeler and Aaron Jones, as well as Derrick Henry last Sunday. There's some dynamism in this group, but missed tackles have been backbreaking at various points of the season.
