Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice was tied with tight end Travis Kelce for the team lead with 10 targets in Week 14's 20-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, catching seven passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. After Rice brought in a four-yard Patrick Mahomes pass for a third-quarter score, the second-round rookie lost a fumble during the following drive. The Chiefs continue to refuse to send Rice down the field for some deep targets here and there to help raise his fantasy ceiling, but the 23-year-old wideout has at least locked himself into a featured role that includes prominent red-zone duties in a Mahomes-steered offense. Rice has also established a sturdy floor since Week 5, with a scoreless four-catch, 42-yard stat line producing his lowest scoring output in this nine-game stretch. He's a relatively safe WR2/3 next Sunday on the road against the New England Patriots.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire acted as an adequate fill-in for featured back Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) in Week 14's close 20-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, taking 11 carries for 39 yards with two receptions for 29 yards. It was a quiet return to lead-back status for the star-crossed 2020 first-round pick, but he did handle 15 of a possible 22 RB opportunities in a timeshare alongside receiving back Jerick McKinnon. Edwards-Helaire's highlight of the evening was a 20-yard catch-and-run on a screen to energize the crowd early in the fourth quarter. The 24-year-old otherwise didn't provide anything particularly outstanding that would suggest he's earned more work when Pacheco is around moving ahead. CEH's Week 15 fantasy outlook depends on Pacheco's availability when the Chiefs take a trip to Foxborough for next Sunday's matchup against the New England Patriots.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led his team with 83 receiving yards in Sunday's 20-17 home defeat to the Buffalo Bills, gathering six of his 10 targets. Kelce offered a shot in the arm to a lethargic Chiefs offense with a 23-yard gain on third-and-long early in the second quarter. The 34-year-old superstar later pulled a rabbit out of his hat after corralling a fourth-quarter pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes, brilliantly tossing a lateral to Kadarius Toney, who then raced to the end zone for what appeared to be an unbelievable go-ahead touchdown. But Toney was lined up in the neutral zone, negating the play. Kelce easily remains the alpha target in this Mahomes-led attack but has crossed the end zone only one time in his last six games. With at least 80 yards in three straight outings, however, the perennial All-Pro should firmly top Week 15 fantasy TE1 rankings despite a tough road matchup with the New England Patriots.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes couldn't lift his team to victory in Week 14's narrow 20-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills, completing 25-of-43 passes for 271 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He added an eight-yard carry. Amid a disjointed first half for the Chiefs offense, Mahomes had a pass batted down at the line of scrimmage for a pick during their first possession. The 28-year-old superstar later found rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice in the back of the end zone for a four-yard passing score in the third period but couldn't ultimately rally his squad for a potential game-winning drive, as Kadarius Toney took the wind out of K.C.'s sails with a foolish penalty that nullified a go-ahead 49-yard score. Equipped with arguably the AFC's weakest cast of wideouts, Mahomes has devolved into a weekly midrange QB1 for fantasy purposes ahead of Week 15's visit to Foxborough for a date with the New England Patriots.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Demarcus Robinson scored for the second week in a row in the team's 37-31 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Robinson caught three of his 10 targets for 46 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown. He has seemed to overtake Tutu Atwell as the team's number three receiver with 15 targets, over 100 yards, and two scores over the last two games. Considering the target competition with Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua, Robinson isn't an ideal fantasy option just yet. You can consider him as a DFS dart throw in his Week 15 matchup with the Washington Commanders.
