Week 6 Running Back Matchups | 2017
|Defense||% Allowed vs Average||% Allowed vs Average||RB Affected|
Bad news for Isaiah Crowell owners who are hoping for him to turn his season around. The going doesn’t get any easier as Isaiah will be taking on a Houston Texans run defense that allows 37% fewer fantasy points per game on average to opposing running backs.
Speaking of tough defenses, the Denver Broncos should absolutely obliterate the New York Giants in week 6. The Giants are expected to be without their top 3 wide receivers, plus Paul Perkins is expected to be out. Orleans Darkwa will likely draw the “start” again and rotate series with Wayne Gallman. Expect plenty of 3 and outs for the Giants this week and if you have any other options at running back you will want to consider them.
