FantasyPros
The heavy workload for Lindsay continued last week, as he out-touched Freeman 20-9, though it is worth noting that Freeman out-snapped him 31-25. Neither of them was particularly efficient in that game, but it's good to see Lock target his running backs more than Brandon Allen did. We saw 7-of-28 pass attempts go to the running backs, which is a phenomenal 25 percent target share. The Texans have allowed at least 139 yards on the ground to running backs in each of the last three games they played, but the question is: Can the Broncos run the ball enough to take advantage of the Texans weakness? On the year, opponents have only averaged 20.3 rushing attempts per game against them, which is one of the lower marks in the league, and doesn't bode well for timeshares, though as we've seen the last few weeks, this may not be that. The area the Texans have been destroyed most by running backs is through the air, as they've allowed a league-high 202.1 PPR points through the air. That amounts to 16.8 PPR points per game through the air alone. We don't have a big enough sample size from Lock to say with any certainty he'll continue to target the running backs, but from what we did see, it's a plus for Lindsay. Knowing he's received 14-20 opportunities in each of the last three games, Lindsay should be played as a solid RB2 against the team allowing the fourth-most points per opportunity to running backs.Have the Texans finally allowed Johnson a bigger slice of the pie in the backfield? Despite leading throughout the game versus the Patriots, Johnson out-touched Hyde 14-11, which is the first time that's happened all year. Johnson's 14 touches netted 90 yards and a touchdown while Hyde's 11 touches netted 22 scoreless yards. We can't assume this is here to stay, but it's a step in the right direction for Johnson, and a step towards irrelevance for Hyde. The Broncos have faced 30.4 running back touches per game this year, which is the third highest number in the league, though efficiency has been weak. They've allowed just 0.74 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, which ranks as the seventh lowest mark in the league. If you were to remove the one big game they allowed to Leonard Fournette back in Week 4, that number would be even lower. Over the last two weeks, this defense has been seemingly calling it a year, as they've allowed 286 yards on 65 carries (4.40 yards per carry) to the combination of Bills and Chargers running backs, though neither of them scored a rushing touchdown. With the volume available in this game, it's hard not to say Hyde is a middling RB3 though he's losing appeal by the day.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Lindsay has basically been what we expected this season: 15 or so carries, a couple receptions, and maybe a touchdown here or there. He's a low-end RB2/high-end RB3, and expect more of the same against the Texans in Week 14.Hyde saw only 38% of the snaps in Week 13, plus he had his lowest rushing output of the season with 17 yards on ten carries. He's actually in a good spot in Week 14 against a Broncos defense that is much easier to run on than pass, but his lack of passing game involvement makes him nothing more than a high-end RB3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Houston is 26th against fantasy running backs, but the Texans should be able to load up the box against a Broncos team that is unable to pass the ball. Lindsay is a low-upside RB2.
