Week 3 PPR Rankings
Mark Ingram II Note

Ingram took back the reigns as the lead option in this backfield last week and was able to produce even with his limited workload. Dobbins wasn't a factor last week and Ingram should see even more work this week in a matchup where it's going to be close right up until the very end. In a matchup that promises to be high-scoring, Ingram's a solid RB2 option.

J.K. Dobbins Note

Dobbins was barely utilized last week after scoring twice in week one, which puts a damper on his season-long outlook. Dobbins is going to be an inconsistent fantasy option that is probably best left on your bench due to the uncertainty regarding his weekly workload.

Gus Edwards Note

Through two weeks, the touch split in this backfield is Ingram 21, Edwards 14, and Dobbins 10. The snaps are somewhat similar with Ingram leading the way with 48, Edwards 46, and Dobbins 43. It seems like Ingram is the one who they'll play the most when the game is close, Edwards is the closer, while Dobbins does everything in between, though that role has only led to 10 opportunities through two weeks. If he hadn't scored those two touchdowns in Week 1, he would be a running back with 83 total yards through two weeks. His role should continue to grow as the weeks go on, but he's a risky start at this moment. The Chiefs are a matchup to attack with running backs, as they've allowed 19 different running backs finish as the RB26 or better over their last 18 games. During last year's meeting, Mark Ingram exploded for 103 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries and chipped in four receptions for 32 yards. That was the second-highest number of carries he had all season. His other two highest totals came against the Steelers and Patriots, so it's obvious they trust him in competitive situations, which this game will be. Ingram should be in lineups as a solid RB2 for this game with a good shot to score at least once. Dobbins is someone I understand the 'want' to play him more than I understand the process. He's a risky RB3/4 option who will disappoint if he doesn't score. Edwards will have a bigger role if they blow out the Chiefs, but we're not expecting that, so he's not a recommended fantasy option.
