He's second in routes run per team dropback rate, first in Target share (22.0%), and tenth in yards per route run among running backs (minimum 15 routes). Detroit has been a tough run defense so far. They have the 13th-highest stuff rate, sixth-lowest yards after contact per attempt, and the fifth-lowest yards before contact per attempt allowed.
