RB Andy Janovich - Denver Broncos
|6-1, 238||Born: 5-23-1993||College: Nebraska||Drafted: Round 6, pick 2016|
Week 7: at Arizona Cardinals
FBG says: Great matchup. The Broncos dynamic duo of running backs Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman struggled to get going last week as they failed to exceed 40 yards combined without a single run of double-digit yards. This was by far the worst rushing outing this offense has had all season as the Rams presented a stout matchup with a tough game script for running the football. It is worth noting that Freeman out-touched Lindsay last week for the first time when they both have been on the field for an entire game. Devontae Booker continues to be involved on a consistent third of the snaps though, primarily serving as a pass-blocking and pass-catching option as he has yet to exceed five rushing attempts in a game. The Broncos offensive line is a mess right now. Garrett Bolles continues his sloppy play while left Ronald Leary was lost for the season with a torn Achilles last week. Center Matt Paradis has anchored this unit though as one of the top run-blocking centers in football, and they have shown some great cohesion this season to still support a league-leading 5.3 rushing yards per attempt. The Cardinals run defense was shredded by Latavius Murray last week as he rushed for 155 yards and a touchdown. This Cardinals squad has struggled against the run all season as they have given up double-digit fantasy points in non-PPR scoring formats to a team's lead running back in all six games--helping to explain how this unit has given up the most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season. Poor tackling and a lack of discipline on the defensive line help explain why this run defense has been so bad. They have not even been plagued by many injuries this season--this unit is simply performing well below expectations given the talent they have. Cardinals safety Budda Baker has been moved all over the field this season, playing between slot cornerback and safety depending on the situation. He has been one of the most effective defensive backs against the run this season, particularly when lined up at safety--but even with Baker over the top and Chandler Jones improving on the outside, the interior defensive line and linebackers have been consistently outmatched. While the Broncos offensive line is indeed a mess at the moment, they have enough talent to win matchups against this Cardinals front seven as the outlook is positive for Broncos running backs.
