Just how bad has it gotten for Ruggs? Well, NFL's NextGenStats requires 28 targets to be a part of the results. Ruggs is no longer part of the results. It's maddening and confusing, as he's averaging 9.8 yards per target, so he hasn't been bad or anything. When playing against the Falcons, wide receivers have outscored running backs by a massive 22.1 PPR points, which is the second-largest gap in the league. Touchdowns aren't even required against them, as they've allowed a massive 9.54 yards per target to wide receivers. Even better is that they've allowed a massive 14.64 yards per reception, which is the most in the league. Ruggs has a ridiculously-high 19.5 air yards per target, so maybe he connects with Carr deep down the field? That's what we have to hope for considering he's go what seems like a four-target ceiling. For what it's worth, no receiver who's played the Falcons and seen fewer than five targets has finished as a top-50 option. If you're playing Ruggs, you're doing it because you know how great the matchup is and you're willing to take the risk. You're going to need a major offensive philosophy change for that upside to happen. He's just a boom-or-bust WR5.The Chiefs ran the ball 21 times in Week 11, which may not seem like much, but it was the first time they hit 20 carries since back in Week 6. It certainly helps that they ran 78 plays and it was a good matchup for their running backs, but that's not going to be the case this week. The Bucs matchup is the last one you want to see on your running back's schedule, as they're simply the best. They've allowed an unheard of 2.97 yards per carry on the year, while no other team has allowed fewer than 3.43 yards per carry. It was the same story last year when they held backs to just 3.02 yards per carry. On the year, they've allowed just 50.5 rushing yards per game, so expecting much production on the ground doesn't make sense. So, let's travel to the passing game. Since Bell joined the team, the routes run have gone Edwards-Helaire 69, Bell 45, and Darrel Williams 34. This is not great, as Edwards-Helaire should be the clear front-runner of this trio. This is important because the Bucs have allowed the third-most fantasy points through the air to running backs. They've seen a league-high 86 targets to them, resulting in a league-high 70 receptions. Still, they've allowed just 90.6 total yards per game to running backs, so touchdowns are necessary for production. They've allowed 10 total touchdowns to running backs, so it's not impossible, but this matchup is bad for a timeshare running back. Edwards-Helaire should be considered just a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 while Bell is not a recommended play.
