Depending when you are reading this, I hope everyone is having or had a great Thanksgiving! It has been a lot of fun doing these matchup analysis articles this season and I'm thankful for the opportunity.
We are coming off a strong Week 11, but as always, we must turn the page to Week 12. The weeks are winding down, but we have time to turn around our DFS season if we are struggling.
The Bucs rank 20th against running backs over the last eight weeks according to the My Fantasy Fix Matchup Matrix, but I'm not even buying that ranking. Game flow dictated the Miami Dolphins to throw in Week 11, but Damien Williams did average nearly eight yards per carry. There was the ugly game against the New York Jets that has helped their ranking as well. The Saints shredded the Bucs on the ground in Week 9, LeSean McCoy had two touchdowns in Week 7 and Adrian Peterson had his epic 134 yard, two touchdown performance against the Buccaneers in Week 6. Coleman has received at least 20 carries in the last two games for the Falcons including a touchdown in each game. The Falcons are currently 10.5 point favorites which should put Coleman in position to once again receive 20 carries. The running back is way too cheap on FanDuel at only $6,200 which ranks 15th at his position for the week.
