RB Andy Janovich - Denver Broncos
|6-1, 238||Born: 5-23-1993||College: Nebraska||Drafted: Round 6, pick 2016|
Week 15: vs Cleveland Browns
FBG says: Good matchup. Undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay has been a revelation. He's rushed for 967 yards on the season and averaged an extremely impressive 5.8 yards per carry, which leads the league amongst backs with at least 40 carries. Lindsay has overshadowed a much more highly touted rookie, Royce Freeman, who has 433 yards (4.2 yards per carry) on the season. After three straight weeks of 100 or more total yards, Lindsay managed just 51 total yards against San Francisco last week. He did score his 6th rushing touchdown in four games, though. He should be able to keep the touchdown streak alive against a Browns defense that has given up 17 rushing touchdowns this season. The Denver line is one of the most improved in the league and now ranks as one of the top-12 run blocking groups in Matt Bitonti's offensive line rankings. 2017 first-round pick Garrett Bolles has emerged this season and looks like a long-term answer for Denver. The Browns have had a tough time against the run this season, ranking near the bottom of the league in most key measures. Cleveland is allowing 133.3 rushing yards per game (5th-most) and 1.3 rushing touchdowns per game (3rd most). The touchdowns have come in bunches, with six different opposing backs scoring at least two rushing touchdowns in a game. Christian McCaffrey scored twice early in the game last week but the Browns run defense stiffened in the second half. Cleveland sold low on beefy nose tackle Danny Shelton in the offseason and the team misses his presence in the middle. Emmanuel Ogbah and Trevon Coley just have not filled in as well as what the Browns had hoped leaving the Browns extremely susceptible on the right side of the field. Top linebacker Christian Kirksey was placed on injured reserve last month with a hamstring injury and his presence has been missed as well leaving the Browns exceptionally thin at the linebacker position.
