  • Jerick McKinnon, Clyde Edwards-Helaire Practicing In Full

    Headshot for Jerick McKinnon

    Kansas City Chiefs running backs Jerick McKinnon (groin) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) both practiced in full on Thursday. The Chiefs are coming off their bye and play on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. Both players should be active, with McKinnon serving in a low-volume, pass-catching complement role to lead back Isiah Pacheco. McKinnon scored his third receiving TD in Week 9 but did so on just two receptions and had only one carry. He hasn't had more than three catches or three rushing attempts in any game in 2023. The 31-year-old is rostered in only 31% of Yahoo leagues. Edwards-Helaire is rostered even less (5%) missed Week 9 with an illness and is KC's No. 3 back behind Pacheco and McKinnon.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Ruled Out For Week 9

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins. The fourth-year running back will not suit up in Germany for the Chiefs' highly-anticipated game against the Dolphins. Edwards-Helaire has barely been involved in the offense over the last five weeks so this doesn't have much of a fantasy impact. He has just 33 rushes for 109 yards and a touchdown to go along with six catches for 36 yards on the season. It will be the Isiah Pacheco show for Kansas City as they look to get back in the win column in Week 9.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Misses Practice Thursday Due To Illness

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) missed practice on Thursday due to an illness. Edwards-Helaire still has several days to feel better before Sunday's game kicks off in Frankfurt, Germany, against the Miami Dolphins. Even if the 24-year-old is active, though, he remains well off the fantasy radar with both Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon (groin) ahead of him on KC's RB depth chart. CEH played a season-low two offensive snaps in the Week 8 upset loss to the Denver Broncos and is averaging a career-low 3.3 yards per carry through the first eight weeks of 2023. Edwards-Helaire has 33 rushing attempts for 109 yards and one touchdown. Stay away.

  • Isiah Pacheco Ready To Roll For Week 4

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco (abdomen) has been given the go-ahead to play in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets. In Week 3 against the Bears, the back suffered an abdomen injury but was able to stay in that game and practice in full all week long. In spite of the injury and a season-low 42% snap share, he had his most productive game of the season against Chicago, finishing with 15 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown and adding 16 more yards on his two receptions. Pacheco will still be splitting backfield reps with Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire against the Jets, who have managed to prevent a rushing touchdown through the first three weeks of the season. Pacheco can again be considered a low-end RB2 in Week 4.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Worth Watching Ahead Of Week 3

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire may be called upon for a more noticeable role if Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) is absent or limited for Sunday's game. The 24-year-old hasn't done much of note with his 10 touches this year, but could be looking at an advantageous setup in Week 3 versus the 0-2 Chicago Bears, who were pierced for fantasy's overall RB1 and RB9 finishes out of Aaron Jones and Rachaad White respectively in the first two contests. Chicago's defense has caved in as a run funnel unit in the early goings, and Edwards-Helaire could check in as a reasonable RB3/FLEX bet as the favorite for base work, but only if Pacheco is inactive for this one. Whoever handles the bulk of K.C.'s backfield touches should display plenty of touchdown upside with the Chiefs projecting as heavy favorites to come out on top.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Listed As Questionable For Week 2

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) has officially received the questionable tag for their Week 2 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The fourth-year back missed practice on Friday after returning on Thursday from an undisclosed illness. With two DNPs this week, Edwards-Helaire is officially listed as questionable. After seeing seven total touches and playing 22% of the team's snaps on offense, he wasn't fantasy-relevant in most leagues to begin with. If he doesn't suit up, that will give some more opportunities and fantasy value to both Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Returns To Practice Thursday

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) returned to a full practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday with an illness. Edwards-Helaire is in line to be active in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday as the defending Super Bowl champions look to bounce back from last Thursday night's loss to the Detroit Lions. Working behind both Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon last week, CEH played just 14 offensive snaps and carried the ball six times for 22 yards. The 24-year-old added a seven-yard catch in the loss to Detroit. As long as both Pacheco and McKinnon remain healthy, Edwards-Helaire won't have any standalone value in fantasy lineups.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Out Sick Wednesday

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) will sit out of practice on Wednesday because he's feeling under the weather, according to head coach Andy Reid. It would be a surprise if Edwards-Helaire is still feeling too sick to play this Sunday for a Week 2 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the season-opening loss to the Detroit Lions last Thursday night, the 24-year-old had six carries for 22 yards and one reception for a seven-yard gain while working behind Isiah Pacheco and pass-catching back Jerick McKinnon. CEH, a former first-round pick, won't have much standalone fantasy value in this Chiefs backfield unless one of Pacheco or McKinnon miss time with an injury.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Draws Surprising Week 1 Start

    Headshot for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed six times for 22 yards with a seven-yard catch in Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. After the 24-year-old started each of KC's three preseason outings, that treatment unexpectedly carried into the regular season. But as was also the case in the preseason, Edwards-Helaire did nothing of much impact over his seven touches except frustrate Isiah Pacheco's fantasy managers. CEH played only 23% of the team's offensive snaps, but his usage will need to be monitored going forward. The former first-rounder is not much of a recommended waiver wire add despite starting Week 1, and CEH should be regarded as more of a handcuff at this time.
