Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
There were major questions surrounding Sanders last week and the type of work he was going to see coming off of his extended absence due to injury. However, he came out and saw enough work to finish as the RB12 on the week. Moving forward, Sanders belongs in your lineup every single week and this is a fantastic matchup for him. The Bengals are currently 2nd in the NFL in terms of allowing fantasy points to the RB position and Sanders could easily finish within the top-5 this week.Edwards-Helaire didn't exactly see 25 carries again in week two, but we saw his usage through the receiving game bounce back to what we expected heading into the season. There are going to be scoring opportunities galore in this matchup, which means that CEH is a must-start option this week. While the Ravens defense is a tough matchup, CEH will see enough work to be viewed as a low-end RB1.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Based on what we saw in Week 2, Sanders is 100 percent healthy. He played 77 percent of the snaps, which is massive for a player in Doug Pederson's offense. Now a big home favorite, can we get a breakout game from him in Week 3? When playing the Bengals, the gap between running backs and quarterbacks is 24.6 fantasy points, which is the second-highest gap in the league. Despite the additions the Bengals made this offseason, they still appear to be a team you can run the ball against, as Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt showcased on primetime last week. We watched the Chargers and Browns both rack up at least 32 carries in this matchup, which bodes well for Sanders, and maybe even Scott. The Bengals allowed 19 running backs to finish as top-20 options against them last year and have allowed three of them through two games in 2020. The Eagles offensive line is a problem, but we can't pretend that the Browns or Washington have offensive lines that are great, and they were able to make it work. Start Sanders as an RB1 in this matchup. Scott touched the ball seven times in Sanders' return to the lineup, which isn't great, but what is great is the fact that it was only those two (Sanders and Scott) who touched the ball. If we get anywhere close to the 35 touches per game running backs have averaged against the Bengals here, Scott could offer last-minute RB4 value, especially in PPR formats.He leads the league with carries inside the 20-, 10-, and 5-yard line. He's totaled exactly 100 percent of the running back carries inside the red zone. The only other running backs who can say that are Derrick Henry, Saquon Barkley, James Robinson, and Kenyan Drake. Production will follow. We also saw him used in the passing game last year, though the matchup with the Chargers was a tough one. If there's one potential leak on the Ravens defense, it's got to be the run defense that's allowed 4.89 yards per carry through the first two weeks, though no teams have been able to commit to the run, as they've fallen behind rather quickly. That's why running backs have totaled just 42 total touches against them, which has hidden the efficiency running backs have had. There were six running backs who totaled at least 87 yards on the ground against the Ravens last year, and though none of them were on the Chiefs, there is a positive from their game against each other last year. The combination of LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams totaled 116 yards on 17 carries and added eight receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown through the air. With Edwards-Helaire getting 73.8 percent of the running back opportunities in the Chiefs backfield, he's a low-end RB1, even in a tough matchup.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 31st against fantasy running backs, Sanders should have a monster game in Week 3 at home.The Ravens are 2nd against fantasy running backs, but some of that can be attributed to outscoring their opponents 71-22 on the season. It is still a tough matchup, but CEH should be a low-end RB1 playing on one of the elite offenses in the NFL.
