Over the last seven weeks before Melvin Gordon’s injury, he was averaging 23 carries/game and almost 4 catches/game. There will be a void for 27 touches against the Raiders on Sunday and they need to go somewhere. Is Farrow going to get 27 touches? Don’t expect that, but a realistic expectation is 15, and hopefully 20.
Ronnie Hillman might be involved or his pass protections “skills”.. he’s not the best, but he might be better than the undrafted rookie. Expect Hillman to spell Farrow, and to take over in expected passing situations.
If you were lucky to snag both Powell and Farrow, Powell is definitely the better start since his workload is massive and role is much more defined.
