Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We don't know if Ekeler will play as of right now, but there's certainly a chance after he tweeted saying he's been medically cleared. If he does return, there will likely be some sort of timeshare between these two, but we'll cross that bridge once we get word that he's playing. This game certainly favors the early-down work, as the Bills have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points on the ground to running backs but have allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points through the air to them. They've still yet to allow a receiving touchdown to a running back and are one of four teams who can say that. When you break it down with weighted volume, the Bills are allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per opportunity, so it's not a bad matchup. Considering Ballage has received an average of 16.3 carries per game over the last three weeks, the 4.65 yards per carry the Bills have allowed looks fantastic. Not just that, but they've also allowed a touchdown every 25.2 carries. Ballage has also earned some credit in the passing game, as he's received 15 targets over the last two weeks. With that type of volume, he's an RB2, at minimum. That hinges on Ekeler's absence. If Ekeler plays, I'd expect them to keep him on some sort of snap count. The Bills have seen 26.8 running back touches per game, which isn't great for a messy timeshare. Ekeler would have to move back into the most valuable back, though there's enough risk to keep him in the low-end RB2/high-end RB3 territory, while Ballage would move back to a low-end RB3 who should still offer some value.Volume is one thing, but extremely bad quarterback play is another. There have been 112 wide receivers who've seen 20-plus targets this year. Here are the Bears wide receiver ranks among them: Robinson 79th, Mooney 100th, Miller 101st. Let me be clear, this is a quarterback issue. Their volume is not equal to other wide receivers' volume. The matchup is an issue, too. Of the fantasy points the Packers have allowed to skill-position players, wide receviers have accounted for just 45.6 percent of it, which is tied for the third-lowest mark in football. The average amount of points it took to finish as a top-12 wide receiver last year was 19.7 PPR points. That's a mark that just two wide receivers have hit against the Packers, and one was Adam Thielen way back in Week 1. The other was Richie James on that Thursday night game where Jaire Alexander left with a concussion. Outside of those two games, no wide receiver has finished better than WR18 against them. Robinson is sure to get the Alexander treatment, though he did finish with 7/102/0 and 7/125/0 against them last year, even if it did take him 27 targets to get there. Robinson should be viewed as a high-end WR2 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bills are 18th against fantasy backs, Ballage is a flex option on the road in a good matchup with no teams on bye this week.Robinson has only 1 touchdown in his last 6 games and he is not producing big numbers with his quarterback situation. He is becoming more of a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3, especially if Nick Foles cannot play on Sunday Night Football.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Ballage was injured early on in last week's game, but he fought through it and played the rest of the game. Unfortunately, his efficiency may have suffered because of the injury and he was only able to put up 44 rushing yards on 16 attempts. He did reel in seven receptions though, which brings a safe floor for fantasy managers each week. Assuming that Ballage is fully healthy, he should be plugged in as a safe mid-range RB2 option with upside due to his work in the receiving game.
