Shouldn't it be a helmet-to-helmet penalty first, negating the fumble

Since the NFL is all about protecting the player these days, shouldn't the obvious helmet-to-helmet hit get a 15 yard penalty and negate the fumble?

No helmet to helmet on running plays. If that were the case, there would literally be a flag on every play. Plus the running back knows when the hits are coming unlike WR's.

Don't see how it wasn't , helmet was the the only thing hit.

Ok. If that was hit on WR, there would have been flag, IMO.

RB is not a "defenseless" player.

Yes, if the WR was in the air or hadn't made a 'football move', but not once he's caught the ball and running.
