Lions stymie Falcons running game

Falcons RBs Bijan Robinson (10-33-0) and Tyler Allgeier (7-12-0) combined for just 55 yards on 17 carries in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Robinson's 11-yarder was the team's longest run of the game. The rookie at least salvaged his fantasy day with four catches on six targets for 27 yards. But it was a surprisingly ineffective day for one of the league's best running games. It's worth noting that Detroit entered Week 3 ranked 13th in run defense DVOA, so perhaps the Lions aren't a matchup to necessarily attack going forward. We're not overly concerned about the Falcons RBs, though. Robinson remains an every-week RB1, while Allgeier is a RB3 or flex that will produce better numbers when Atlanta plays with the lead.
