I tried warning you about his matchup last week, and Edwards-Helaire completely bombed, finishing with a career-low 4.9 PPR points against the Bucs. When you're seeing the workload he is, those games are going to happen. Over the last five weeks with Bell in the lineup, Edwards-Helaire has averaged 8.8 carries and 3.0 targets per game. Didn't realize it was that low, did you? He's averaging a great 4.58 yards per carry on the year, so that's not the issue. This week's matchup could be one for you to like him a bit more, though. Despite the Broncos being one of the better pass defenses in the league, the Chiefs have an implied team total of 31.3 points, which bodes extremely well for Edwards-Helaire. The Broncos lost interior lineman Mike Purcell on the first drive of Week 7. They haven't been able to stop the run lately, and those eight touchdowns don't even count Taysom Hill's two rushing touchdowns last week. Opponents have averaged 27.2 carries per game against them over that time, which should allow Edwards-Helaire to get back into the 12-15 carry range for this game, which should be enough for him to get into RB2 territory. The Broncos have allowed just 1.28 PPR points per target to running backs, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in the league, so don't count on too much production there. I'd play Edwards-Helaire as a solid RB2 this week who has top-five upside in this matchup, though he needs more work. Bell hasn't topped nine touches in a Chiefs uniform, and based on his lack of efficiency, we shouldn't expect his touches to increase. He's just an RB4/handcuff.

Le'Veon Bell gains 32 total yards in Week 12

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell rushed five times for 22 yards and added two receptions for 10 yards in the Chiefs' 27-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Bell spelled Clyde Edwards-Helaire and did a good job pushing the pile on his way to averaging over four yards per carry. He was the best RB on the field today but is clearly the backup to CEH. He'll face the Broncos in Week 13, where he could see more action if the Chiefs get out to an early lead.
