Miles Sanders is out again for the Philadelphia Eagles this week. Last Sunday against the Detroit Lions, Scott was given the early-down work in Sanders’ absence, and turned 12 carries into 60 yards and two touchdowns.
After Philadelphia built a big lead, the other running backs began to mix in more and more. Facing the Chargers this week should be more competitive, so Scott should see more time on the field. The Chargers have given up the most rushing yards per attempt in the NFL, at 5.1.
In case you somehow haven’t heard, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and will be out for this game. That throws Jordan Love into the starting lineup for Green Bay, severely limiting their chance to win this game.
It all points to the Kansas City Chiefs jumping out to a lead early and holding it throughout. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is still out, making Williams the lead back again. In Williams’ two starts that the Chiefs have won, he’s put up rushing totals of 62 and 49. The Packers have given up the fourth-most rushing yards per attempt in the NFL, at 4.7.
Again, Rodgers is out for the Packers and Love will be making his first start. If Love’s preseason performance was any indication of what we will see on Sunday, the Packers will ask him to get the ball out quickly and not force it downfield.
One of the Packers’ best weapons around the line of scrimmage is undoubtedly running back Jones, who is an effective receiver. We have seen Kansas City struggle to defend running backs all season, as they have given up 56.4 receiving yards per game to opposing running backs.
Quietly, Cooks has been terrific this season. He is also now likely to get his starting quarterback throwing to him again, with Tyrod Taylor expected to make his return from injury for the Houston Texans.
Cooks caught 14 passes in the two games that Taylor has played in this season. He has also totaled five or more receptions in all but one game this season.
Landry has played three full games this season and caught five passes in each, totaling 23 targets across all three. With Odell Beckham Jr. now released by the Cleveland Browns, look for quarterback Baker Mayfield to try and make a statement with a big performance.
The best way for him to do that is to feed his favorite target, which is Landry. When healthy, as he is now, Landry is a major part of this offense, and the Bengals are good enough to force the Browns to stay aggressive.
