RB Byron Marshall - Baltimore Ravens

Week 14: at Buffalo Bills
FBG says: Good matchup. The Baltimore Ravens top the charts in virtually every rushing metric available through 12 games this season, leading the league in both measures of volume and efficiency, thanks to their diverse rushing attack. Lamar Jackson is perhaps the most prolific rushing quarterback of all time, and in the offense that offensive coordinator Greg Roman has designed, his rushing talents are maximized. Jackson has eclipsed 60 rushing yards in 10 out of 12 games this season, including at least 70 rushing yards in 8 straight games. In the backfield, Mark Ingram leads the way with about 13 carries per game while playing about 50-percent of the team's offensive snaps. Baltimore rotates personnel on and off of the field at all offensive skill positions, limiting Ingram's weekly production, but he is nearing in on a 1,000-yard season, as he averages nearly 70 rushing yards per game. The Ravens' offensive line is one of the best in the league, fostering an elite rushing environment for any and every player to carry the ball for the team. Buffalo's run defense has rarely been tested, defending the 8th-fewest rushing attempts in the NFL. However, their efficiency numbers are less-than-stellar, allowing 4.5 yards per carry, good for the 21st-best mark in the league, while allowing the 16th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Since the Bills have played an exceptionally easy schedule and played with a lead for the majority of the season, opposing rushing attacks have seldom pushed the limits of Buffalo's run defense in 2019. The Bills' defensive personnel resembles merely an average run defense, aside from their pair of elite run-stopping safeties. Throughout the front-seven, Buffalo fields very few top-end run-defenders. Perhaps more important than the lack of elite talent is the lack of especially poor run-defenders throughout the front-seven, leaving no glaring weakness within the unit. Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, Buffalo's starting safety duo, both have a nose for the football in run support. Hyde and Poyer grade as the team's top two run-stoppers, helping to prevent chunk plays on the ground throughout the first 12 games of the 2019 season. The Bills' defense will have its hands full in Week 14 against Baltimore's top-ranked run defense that has seemingly shredded every defense in their path thus far this season. Expect Baltimore to continue to move the ball down the field via their top-ranked rushing attack this weekend in a matchup between two likely playoff teams.
