autofill not detecting my range pattern

Hello,

I have the following series of formulas consecutively in a single column:

=IF(A3=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H3:H50),H3:H50,0),1)),"YES","NO")
=IF(A4=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H3:H50),H3:H50,0),1)),"YES","NO")
.
.
.
=IF(A50=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H3:H50),H3:H50,0),1)),"YES","NO")
=IF(A51=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H51:H98),H51:H98,0),1)),"YES","NO")
=IF(A52=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H51:H98),H51:H98,0),1)),"YES","NO")
.
.
.

Effectively, I am comparing the values in each set of 47 to determine which one is the smallest. The smallest entry will get a YES label next to it and all others will get a NO. The problem I am having is the the autofill feature is not correctly detecting the pattern, even if I manually fill in the first 49 entries (shown above). If I hilight all of the above entries and autofill one down, I get the following:

=IF(A53=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H53:H100),H53:H100,0),1)),"YES","NO")

It should be:

=IF(A53=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H51:H98),H51:H98,0),1)),"YES","NO")

Basically I need the H:H: reference to stay constant, but only for 47 cells at a time. After that, both the lower and upper bound should increase by 47. Is there any way to indicate this to Excel? Manually typing in the new formula every 47 entries isn't practical because the spreadsheet has thousands of entries. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this using a single formula and autofill?
