    Main Storylines to Watch

    What is the running back split going to be in Minnesota? Alexander Mattison still got 18 touches to seven for Cam Akers last week. But is this the week we see the snap count for Akers go from 14 to something like 25-30?

    Do we have a set-it-and-forget RB1 in Kansas City? Isiah Pacheco has seen his rush attempts increase in the last three weeks: 12, 15, and 20 this past week against the Jets. In Week 4, he had 42 snaps compared to six for Clyde Edwards-Helaire and 22 for Jerick McKinnon.
