Anyone playing Collins against Houston Monday night?  Playing against Houston is like running into a brick wall, but depends on your options.  AP ran 14 times for 26 yards this past Sunday.  Woodhead might have more success in the passing game.

I'm going to roll him out there because Houston is a turf team and this game is in Baltimore.  I think he makes some hay as the Texans have given up points to good rbs.  

Any examples of RB’s that were productive vs the Texans?  I’m torn on this one, own Woodhead too.

Houston has been tough against the run. Fournette ,hunt and Gurley were the only ones to have decent games against them. Hunt and Fournette still had under 4 yards a carry if remember correctly.

Negative play after negative play for the first 1.5 quarters, then finally 34 yards and TD on back to back plays, saved my week.  It looked like he was going to lose touches to Buck Allen but AC is a home run hitter even against rock solid defenses.

Yeah I agree that game flow is gonna be a big deal for him, because of the presence of Allen and Woodhead. If they fall behind, they're gonna go with the passing catching back. All in all, however, good game against a stout run defense. Haven't decided how I feel about him versus Detroit next week, but he's got Cleveland and Indy in weeks 15 and 16, so a solid playoff schedule.

AC runs hard, hits holes and plays the position well. I'm excited for his 2018. You put him on a team with blocking and that can sustain drives through the air and he's a 1100/10 guy, I believe. Hopefully BAL adds appropriate pieces on offense this offseason.

Close on the carries and yards. Completely wrong about that TD :)

 

TD's are the hardest thing to predict. Don't think anyone could've reasonably predicted 2 rushing TD's against Clowney's run D, but happy either way since I'm a Collins holder :)

 

BTW, those pair of rushing TD's were the first vs Houston since Week 1. Although, Buck Allen's rushing one was more of a "pushing" TD. His O-line basically shoved the pile a good 5 yards for the 6 points.
