Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Edwards-Helaire saw an incredibly high-volume role for the Chiefs on Thursday. He logged 25 carries and two targets last weekend, and since the Chargers surrendered 122 rushing yards last week, I doubt that they'll be able to limit him much on Sunday -- especially since they also have to contend with Patrick Mahomes. The Chargers' strong secondary may also force them to run the ball often than usual, so expect CEH to post RB1 numbers in Week 2.Chubb has seen his stock fall this week. Some of it is fair, as it looks like Kareem Hunt may have a bigger role in some games than he will. But it isn't all fair -- in closer games, Chubb should still see plenty of touches. Cleveland was down big by halftime against the Ravens, and as long as they don't completely collapse against the Bengals, it's fair to expect Chubb to get the majority of touches in Stefanski's offense.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Despite not catching a single pass, Clyde Edwards-Helaire finished as the RB7 last week behind 138 rushing yards and a touchdown. CEH will certainly begin to see more utility in the passing game, giving him a terrifying fantasy ceiling, but this will be a difficult matchup against a stout Chargers' front. CEH is still an every-week RB1 given his role in perhaps the league's best offense.The Bengals' run defense is nothing to write home about and while this team made several key additions over the offseason, I'm not expecting it to translate right away. Depending on how you ask, Nick Chubb might be the best runner in football and he's set up for a dominant bounce-back performance after a disappointing Week 1 against the Ravens. He's a low-end RB1 with high-end upside.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
CEH is an every week high-end starter now even though the matchup isn't fantastic. The scary thing with CEH is that he can see an uptick in his fantasy production if he starts to see some more work out of the backfield as a receiver. He's a top-tier RB1 this week.Nick Chubb disappointed fantasy managers in last week's matchup, but the Ravens got ahead early and Chubb was game-scripted out. While this is something that managers will have to be concerned about for future games, Chubb should be a key part of this matchup. With the Browns favored to win, it's likely that Chubb sees a significant increase in his usage this week, which should be music to everyone's ears. He can be started as a safe RB2 with RB1 upside this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The rookie's first action in an NFL game led to 25 carries and two targets in the high-flying Chiefs offense, racking up 138 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Williams touched the ball nine times, leading to just 30 scoreless yards. The difference to the human eye was just as evident as the stats between these two. Sure, Edwards-Helaire went 0-for-6 inside the five-yard line, but it highlights they trust him in that role. He was hit on five of those carries before even getting back to the line of scrimmage. As Mike Clay pointed out on Twitter, there were just 35 players who had six-plus carries inside the five-yard line the entire 2019 season. That's massive for his outlook. Some will point out his lack of usage in the passing game, but that's the least of my concerns, as he's one of the better receiving backs in the league. The Chargers were able to shut down the Bengals run game last week, though their offensive line looked atrocious. This is still the same scheme with many of the same players that allowed 12 different running backs to finish as top-15 options last year, including five 23-plus PPR point games. The Chiefs are projected for 28.0 points (four touchdowns) and knowing that Mahomes has thrown just four touchdowns in the last three games against the Chargers, the points have to come from somewhere. Edwards-Helaire should be played as an RB1 this week.This was close to a 50/50 timeshare in Week 1 where Chubb played 51 percent of the snaps and Hunt played 46 percent of the snaps. I suspect we'll see that favor Chubb in games the Browns win, as he's the favorite for early-down work. I say that because when the game was still within reach (first half), Chubb played 21 snaps compared to just 11 for Hunt. It should be noted that Chubb also totaled 48 of his 66 yards in the first 12 minutes of the game. This game is projected to go much differently than their Week 1 matchup did, as the Browns are near-touchdown favorites. There were just four teams who allowed more than the 190.5 total yards per game to running backs in 2019 than the Bengals. Those teams were Washington, Chiefs, Jaguars, and Dolphins. It helps that running backs combined to average 29.1 touches per game against them. After watching them allow the Chargers running backs 148 yards and a touchdown on 33 carries, it's safe to say that they still have an issue stopping the run, as everybody and their grandmother knew what the Chargers would be doing. I'm expecting the Browns to play this game close to the vest, simply getting away with a win, and considering the matchup, the production should go through their running backs. Chubb should garner at least 16 touches in this game and produce like a low-end RB1/high-end RB2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
CEH was unbelievable in the opener and even though the Chargers were 5th against fantasy running backs in the opener, they will have a hard time stopping the run when they also have to defend the best passing offense in the NFL.The Bengals were 17th against fantasy running backs last week, Chubb should be able to build on a Week 1 performance that saw him tally 60 rushing yards in a game they fell behind in quickly.
