Week 15: vs Detroit Lions

All RB vs DET

FBG says: Bad matchup. If LeSean McCoy can suit up Sunday, he'll look to buck the trend of the worst season of his career. Hampered often by game flow, stacked boxes, and a bottom-tier line (currently ranked 31st by Footballguys' Matt Bitonti), McCoy has failed to have any consistent impact on the Bills offense. The 30-year-old has plodded to just 3.4 yards per carry and 48 per full game as the centerpiece of the Bills' anemic offense. It's hard to see the upside in him gutting out a nagging hamstring injury. He's been held below 50 in 7 of his 11 games and simply doesn't look like an upgrade over a Chris Ivory/Marcus Murphy tandem. Ivory has been similarly bottled up (3.4 yards per rush), but the speedy Murphy has broken off a few chunk runs. Quarterback Josh Allen has fast become the star of this attack, though. Allen has run for 99, 135, and 101 yards in his last 3 games and found the end zone 5 times on the year. He's a threat both on scrambles and called runs, and he looks fairly matchup-proof as a runner. Allen has burned the solid run defenses of the Jaguars and the Jets, and he scored twice against the Vikings earlier in the year. The Lions are mired in a lost season, but their rebuilt run defense has been a silver lining. Aside from a big Todd Gurley game and a long Dalvin Cook run, they've allowed just 2.8 yards per carry to running backs over the last 6 weeks. Most of the credit goes to the addition of Damon Harrison via trade, of course. He's a truly dominant presence inside, and he's brought out the best in the rest of the front line rotation as well. Unfortunately, they're likely to move forward without impressive rookie tackle DaShawn Hand, who left Week 14 with a scary-looking knee injury. This is a fairly deep unit, but Hand's loss will be felt, even against the Bills' shaky front line.
