Isiah Pacheco has seen a dropoff in volume over the last two weeks, but that’s not entirely his fault. In Week 18, we largely need to throw those numbers out as the Chiefs were rotating in non-starters such as Ronald Jones II to ensure that their starters will be rested for the playoffs. In Week 17, Pacheco had just 9 carries which is far less than his 18.2 average in his prior six games. This was a weird game as the Chiefs ran the ball just 12 total times with their running backs and Pacheco still had 75% of the carries in that game. With the Chiefs having Super Bowl aspirations, look for them to get back towards a more balanced approach this week as he may not get the full 18 carries as he saw from Weeks 10-16, but even if he can get 15 carries this week, he should be in a great spot to top 50.5 Rushing Yards.
