All RB vs TB

FBG says: Bad matchup. Up until last week, the Marlon Mack-less Colts backfield seemed clear enough with Jonathan Williams leading the way after back-to-back 100+ yard outings. Things were certainly muddled last week though, as it was Jordan Wilkins who led the way with 11 carries, followed by Williams with eight and Nyhiem Hines with four. Wilkins looked like the better back as he saw a near-majority of the snaps in his first action since a Week 10 ankle injury. With Wilkins now back to full health, this backfield will remain a committee until the return of Marlon Mack, which could be as soon as this week pending his practice participation. Keep an eye on his status, as a return from Mack would immediately eliminate any upside coming from Wilkins or Williams. Regardless of who is running for the Colts, they will remain behind one of the top offensive lines in football that has been playing very well and remains healthy coming into the final stretch of this season. Tampa Bay continued to prove last week why they may have the best rushing defense in football as they limited Leonard Fournette and the Jaguars to just 49 rushing yards and no rushing touchdowns, with Fournette averaging a meager 2.7 yards per attempt. Opposing running backs are averaging a league-low 60 rushing yards per game and just 3.1 rushing yards per attempt on the season. Since their Week 7 bye, Tampa Bay is holding running backs to the fewest fantasy points per game and has given up just one rushing touchdown to the position. With massive interior defenders like William Gholston and Vita Vea, it is no wonder teams have struggled to run effectively on this team. Linebacker Lavonte David has also been a big part of their success as he has been a consistent leader in tackles and playmaker against the run. The Colts offensive line is indeed an elite unit, but even they should have issues with this equally elite run defense.
