Sean Raposa's analysis of every NFL team's offensive line – with a focus on how it impacts fantasy football.
1. Denver Broncos Excellent Stability / Fair Health
Starters: Chris Clark (LT), Zane Beadles (LG), Manny Ramirez (C), Louis Vasquez (RG), Orlando Franklin (RT)
|2013 Offensive Ranks:|
|Rush YPG: 121.9 (13th)||Sacks Allowed: 15 (T-1st)|
|Pass YPG: 336.6 (1st)||QB Hits Allowed: 39 (1st)|
|Next Opponent: vs. Tennessee|
|Rush YPG Allowed: 114.0 (17th)|
|Pass YPG Allowed: 212.6 (7th)|
|Sacks: 31 (T-16th)|
Injuries: Dan Koppen, I.R. (knee), Ryan Clady, I.R. (foot), Orlando Franklin, not listed (ankle), Chris Clark, not listed (thumb/thigh), Chris Kuper, probable (ankle), J.D. Walton, probable (ankle), Winston Justice, probable (finger),
Backups: (T): Winston Justice (G): Chris Kuper, John Moffitt (C): Steve Vallos
Fantasy Impact: There are plenty of bumps and bruises to go around within this group, but they keep getting the job done. Last week they didn't allow a single sack to the dangerous KC defense. This week they return home to play a Titans' defense that is much more vulnerable. The weather could be the biggest obstacle in this one.
Previous: (Week/Rank) 1/2, 2/2, 3/1, 4/1, 5/1, 6/1, 7/1, 8/2, 9/3, 10/2, 11/1, 12/1, 13/1
2. Cincinnati Bengals Excellent Stability / Fair Health
Starters: Anthony Collins (LT), Andrew Whitworth (LG), Kyle Cook (C), Mike Pollak (RG), Andre Smith (RT)
|2013 Offensive Ranks:|
|Rush YPG: 112.6 (18th)||Sacks Allowed: 26 (6th)|
|Pass YPG: 251.1 (11th)||QB Hits Allowed: 42 (T-2nd)|
|Next Opponent: vs. Indianapolis|
|Rush YPG Allowed: 128.6 (28th)|
|Pass YPG Allowed: 238.7 (17th)|
|Sacks: 30 (T-18th)|
Injuries: Clint Boling, I.R. (knee), Kevin Zeitler, questionable (foot/hamstring)
Backups: (T): Dennis Roland (G): Kevin Zeitler, Tanner Hawkinson (C): Trevor Robinson
Fantasy Impact: The Bengals' line is in for a big shift potentially. After left guard Clint Boling went down with a knee injury last, left tackle Andrew Whitworth moved inside and Anthony Collins took over the blind side. It seemed to help the running game so it will be interesting to see if they stick with this alignment and whether it's successful again. The Colts certainly present the opportunity for good production.
Previous: (Week/Rank) 1/12, 2/11, 3/4, 4/3, 5/3, 6/2, 7/2, 8/1, 9/1, 10/3, 11/2, 12/2, 13/2
