So, we lost David Johnson this week. We also lost Danny Woodhead. We learned several valuable lessons. First, the Seahawks running back group could not do anything against the Packers. That offensive line is hurting them. Also, learned the rookies can play. Now we have to project that on brand new matchups.

Clearly, we are still seeing where the defenses line up. If Houston is not who they were, what do we make of Fournette's break out? We will see. Here is how they line up this week:
