  • Isiah Pacheco A Name To Watch

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco has been classified as a "player to watch" by senior NFL reporter Albert Breer. The speedy RB has been "lighting up" training camp and has Kareem Hunt traits, but with a gear Hunt didn't have. After spending four years at Rutgers, the 23-year-old was selected in the seventh round of the 2022 NFL draft. He compiled 2,442 yards and 18 touchdowns off 563 carries during that time. Assuming he makes the active roster, he's expected to spend some time with the special teams unit this year. It's obvious he can handle a heavy workload based on his collegiate career. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire also known for his inability to remain healthy, there's a chance Pacheco could surpass Ronald Jones, Jerick McKinnonand Derrick Gore on the depth chart and receive some meaningful touches out of the backfield this season. But for now, he's just a "player to watch."

  • Isiah Pacheco To Begin As Primary Kickoff Returner

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco will start the preseason as the team's primary kickoff returner. "We'll see if he can handle it," special teams coordinator Dave Toub said. "In a few games, we'll be able to know right away. He's promising. He's a big guy: 215 (pounds) running a 4.37 (40-yard dash at the league's scouting combine). That's kind of scary back there if we can get that thing going." If the seventh-rounder can handle the duties, he should be able to secure a roster spot heading into his first NFL season. On offense, the 23-year-old's speed could earn him a role alongside Ronald Jones and Jerick McKinnon, but for now, Pacheco is off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
