Week 6: at New York Jets

All RB vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Colts still field one of the NFL's least-impactful run games. There's talent in the backfield, but the front line is built for pass protection and generally soft in the run game. Rookie Jordan Wilkins has flashed thus far, and against both Washington and New England he's been able to create beyond his blocking. Fellow rookie Nyheim Hines is one of the class' most electric athletes, a poor man's Darren Sproles whose receiving skills are basically an extension of the team's rushing attack. But even with the starting line coming together, or if Marlon Mack returns to the field soon, there's not much reason for excitement here. The pass-dominant nature of the offense doesn't lend itself well to a runner establishing a rhythm and grinding down a defense. Through 5 games, Colts runners are producing just 3.53 yards per attempt and have scored just once on the ground. The Jets run defense is a solid enough unit, one that hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher since Week 1 of last season. Of course, over that same 20-game stretch, they've allowed 14 runners to top 50 - they're definitely not unbeatable. Down lineman Leonard Williams is a star disruptor, but the loss of emerging linebacker Demario Davis has left this group a bit short on dynamism and sure tackling. They tightened up last week in their blowout of the Broncos, but still gave up 29- and 24-yard runs. Still, opponents generally have to earn their yardage in this matchup. Over those last 20 games, running backs have averaged just 3.58 yards per carry.
