Over the last two weeks with Jordan Howard on the shelf, Sanders has totaled 44 touches and played 124-of-143 snaps. I purposely left out the Patriots game, as that'll negatively impact anyone's numbers. Sanders has compiled 191 total yards and a touchdown the last two weeks, though it's still felt a bit empty. Maybe it's because they played the Dolphins in one of them. If Howard remains out, Sanders will play a Giants defense that has played extremely well against the run over the last three weeks. It coincides with them acquiring Leonard Williams from the Jets, as he's had a massive impact against the run. During those last three weeks, Le'Veon Bell, David Montgomery, and Aaron Jones each failed to finish with more than 68 total yards. Bell was the only one who found the end zone, propping him up to an RB10 finish. The Jets, Bears, and Packers backfields combined to average just 2.38 yards per carry in those games. The point is that it's not a pushover matchup on the ground. The only two running backs who've scored more than 16.8 PPR points against them this year have been the two running backs who totaled 27-plus touches. Sanders should be started as a low-end RB2 if Howard remains out, but it's not as great of a spot as some may think.It's all but settled that Scarbrough is the early-down back with Johnson and J.D. McKissic mixed-in on passing downs. Projecting gamescript is massive with this backfield, as Scarbrough has totaled 53 rushing attempts, but just one target. This game has the Vikings as massive 14-point favorites, which doesn't bode well for Scarbrough's role, as the game can get out of hand rather quickly. While the Vikings secondary has been suspect all year, their run defense is better than they looked on Monday night. Prior to allowing Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny to go bonkers against them, the Seahawks had allowed just four running backs finish better than RB20 against them all season. Oddly enough, Johnson's 9.7-PPR point performance in Week 7 qualifies, as it was a low-scoring week in fantasy football. Just half of the Vikings opponents have had a running back who's totaled at least 15 carries, and it's extremely tough to say Scarbrough will. The fact that the Vikings have allowed just seven running backs to reach double-digit points (only Vikings, 49ers, Bucs can say that) should be enough to scare you off Scarbrough as anything more than a low-ceiling, low-floor, low-end RB3/high-end RB4.

 Boy, the Vikings run defense looked as soft in the middle as the Pillsbury Dough Boy last week against the Seahawks, huh? Bo's carries have gone up every single week and, with an inexperienced QB, the Lions would be wise to give him a heavy dose of carries again, especially early in the game to hopefully establish the run and take some pressure off of Blough.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Giants are 15th against fantasy running backs, Sanders has emerged as the lead back in the backfield to close the season and he should be a RB2 this week with upside.
