Week 14: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All RB vs CIN

FBG says: Great matchup. The Chargers rank 10th in rushing yards and 5th-best in yards per carry (4.0) It's looking unlikely the Chargers will bring back Melvin Gordon this week as they are big home favorites in this one and with the big game against the Chiefs next week looming, it makes little sense to roll him out there especially as he has not practiced as of Wednesday. Until he returns, Austin Ekeler will be the lead back while rookie Justin Jackson provides a change of pace. Jackson, an undrafted rookie out of Northwestern, has provided a spark in Gordon's absence and flashed game-breaking skills. He has averaged 8.0 yards per carry on 15 carries over the past two weeks. The Bengals run defense is likely the worst in football as they have allowed more rushing yards (1,840) than any team in the NFL and have a complete lack of talent at the linebacker position. Opponents are averaging 4.9 yards per carry and 153.3 rushing yards per game. Cincinnati has given up the most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. The run defense has looked especially vulnerable in recent weeks, allowing 159 total yards to Phillip Lindsay, 128 to Nick Chubb, 115 to Gus Edwards, and 324 total yards to the Saints backs. Vontaze Burfict is having a rough season. Since returning from suspension, he has looked a step slow and been plagued by injuries while he has no help from his fellow linebackers in Vincent Rey and Jordan Evans.
