CEH saw the majority of the work on the ground last week, but it wasn't by much. Bell figures to be more of a part of this offense than fantasy managers anticipated and CEH takes a hit because of it. CEH can be viewed as a mid-range RB2 this week that will need to score to crack the top-12.Ridley continues to tear it up and he's been utterly dominant for fantasy football this season. Even though the Panthers have been tough on opposing WRs, Ridley should have no problem putting up a dominant day.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Fun fact: Edwards-Helaire ranks second in the NFL with 33 broken tackles. Yes, the Chiefs added Bell to the backfield, but it's not due to Edwards-Helaire not being able to carry the workload. In Bell's first game, the split in opportunities was Edwards-Helaire 12, Bell 6. It was an odd game in the snow, so we can't take too much away from it. I'm sure that Bell would love to stick it to his old team this week, but will Andy Reid give him a bigger role to do so? The Jets have faced the fourth-most weighted opportunity to running backs, as they've averaged a massive 203 touches through seven games. That amounts to 29.0 per game, so there should be plenty to go around in a game they're almost 20-point favorites and projected to score 34.0 points. The Jets were a solid run defense last year, though this team looks like they've simply given up on the season and have now allowed 90-plus rushing yards to three different running backs. Their schedule hasn't even been tough, as they've played the Bills running backs twice, the 49ers, Colts, Broncos, Cardinals, and Dolphins. The issue here is that we may not see the check-downs to running backs as much knowing the Jets cornerback issues, and that's a big part of Edwards-Helaire's value in this offense. You should still be starting him as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 this week. Bell's role should grow this week, as we should see more touches available than the 15 there were between these two running backs last week. I'd expect at least 28-plus touches out of them in this game, which should put Bell in the 10-12 range against his former team. He should be considered a mid-to-high-end RB3.Through six weeks, he led the NFL with 875 air yards, while no other wide receiver had totaled more than 684 of them. When you combine that opportunity with Ridley's efficiency, that's when elite numbers come out. Despite his zero-point game against the Packers, Ridley is still the No. 3 receiver in fantasy football. Of all the production that the Panthers have allowed to skill-position players, just 41.9 percent has come via the wide receiver position, which is the lowest number in the NFL. That's the issue, as is the 7.45 yards per target they've allowed to them, which is second-best in the NFL. However, Ridley already tagged this secondary for 8/136/0 when Julio Jones was out just a couple weeks ago. It also seems like Ridley will get rookie Troy Pride most of the time, which isn't a bad thing as he's allowed 15-of-18 passing for 236 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage. He's the weakest link in their secondary right now. Start Ridley as a WR1 who just might outperform Jones.

The Jets are 26th against fantasy running backs, CEH has great upside this week at home in a game the Chiefs should try to dominate on the ground.Ridley is the leading receiver in fantasy football and he should be a WR1 this week, even against a Panthers D that is 5th against fantasy wide receivers.
