The Chiefs ran the ball 21 times in Week 11, which may not seem like much, but it was the first time they hit 20 carries since back in Week 6. It certainly helps that they ran 78 plays and it was a good matchup for their running backs, but that's not going to be the case this week. The Bucs matchup is the last one you want to see on your running back's schedule, as they're simply the best. They've allowed an unheard of 2.97 yards per carry on the year, while no other team has allowed fewer than 3.43 yards per carry. It was the same story last year when they held backs to just 3.02 yards per carry. On the year, they've allowed just 50.5 rushing yards per game, so expecting much production on the ground doesn't make sense. So, let's travel to the passing game. Since Bell joined the team, the routes run have gone Edwards-Helaire 69, Bell 45, and Darrel Williams 34. This is not great, as Edwards-Helaire should be the clear front-runner of this trio. This is important because the Bucs have allowed the third-most fantasy points through the air to running backs. They've seen a league-high 86 targets to them, resulting in a league-high 70 receptions. Still, they've allowed just 90.6 total yards per game to running backs, so touchdowns are necessary for production. They've allowed 10 total touchdowns to running backs, so it's not impossible, but this matchup is bad for a timeshare running back. Edwards-Helaire should be considered just a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 while Bell is not a recommended play.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire stalls against TB, totals 39 yards in win

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed 11 times for 37 yards and added one reception for two yards in the Chiefs' 27-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards-Helaire had a tough time finding running room against a stout Tampa Bay defensive front on Sunday. Patrick Mahomes put on an aerial assault, and unfortunately for CEH fantasy managers, he did not get in on the action. He out-touched Le'Veon Bell 12:7, and Edwards-Helaire will look to rebound against the Broncos in Week 13.
