  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Goes On Injured Reserve

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was placed on Injured Reserve on Wednesday with a high-ankle sprain that he suffered in Sunday night's win over the Los Angeles Chargers. It means that Edwards-Helaire will miss at least the next four games for the Chiefs, which basically makes him droppable in single-year leagues. CEH's injury makes both rookie Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon more attractive in fantasy, while Ronald Jones will serve in a change-of-pace RB3 role for KC moving forward. Expect Pacheco to lead the Chiefs backfield now, with McKinnon being more of the third-down/pass-catching back. It has been another disappointing season for Edwards-Helaire, as he has just 71 carries for 302 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and three rushing TDs in 10 games played, adding 17 catches for 151 yards and three more scores.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Downgraded To Out Sunday

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers. He exited the game in the first quarter after rushing two times for nine yards. Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon should have no trouble filling in for Edwards-Helaire during his absence.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Questionable To Return Sunday

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) is questionable to return against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. He exited the game in the first quarter after rushing two times for nine yards. Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon should have no trouble filling in for Edwards-Helaire during his absence.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Plays Just Four Snaps

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was on the field for just four offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He was targeted twice, but failed to bring either in. Edwards-Helaire has been trending down for a little while, but Sunday's game solidified that he's the team's No. 3 running back. Fantasy managers in re-draft leagues can probably go ahead and move on from Edwards-Helaire.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Tough To Trust In Week 10

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is coming off his worst game of the season, carrying the ball four times for just five yards in Week 9's win over the Titans. He was also on the field for just 17% of the team's snaps. Game script influenced that and Edwards-Helaire should be on the field more in this game since the Chiefs won't need to throw as much, but his current usage has him trending down. He's an RB4 at best at this point, and fantasy managers won't feel good about playing him if they end up having to.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Invisible Against Titans

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire had four carries for five yards in Sunday's win over the Tennessee Titans. He also had one 14-yard reception. KC's run game was non-existent in this one, as quarterback Patrick Mahomes had 63 of the team's 77 rushing yards. At this point, fantasy managers shouldn't feel good about rostering any Chiefs running back, but Edwards-Helaire remains a slightly better option than Isiah Pacheco, though not by much.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Is Risky Play In Week 9

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has just one game this season with double-digit carries and in the last game before the bye, he saw a season-low six carries, though he turned one of them into a touchdown. The Chiefs face the Titans in Week 9, who allow the fifth-fewest fantasy points to the running back position and the second-fewest rushing yards. Edwards-Helaire is a risky RB3 play for this one.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Finds End Zone In Week 7

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire found the end zone in Sunday's win over the 49ers, his first touchdown since Week 4. But Edwards-Helaire also set a new season low in carries with just six of them, finishing with 32 yards, his second-worst mark of the year. News broke early on Sunday that the Chiefs were turning to Isiah Pacheco to lead the backfield and while Pacheco did lead in carries, Edwards-Helaire was still involved. But with the bye week coming up, fantasy managers should be concerned about Edwards-Helaire's usage, since he won't play next week and there will be time for Pacheco to get even more comfortable with the first-team offense.

  • Isiah Pacheco To Start Over Clyde Edwards-Helaire Sunday

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco took first-team reps during practice and is expected to draw his first career start against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. As a result, Clyde Edwards-Helaire will operate as the No. 2 back. Both players are still expected to see significant snaps. Pacheco, who was viewed as a rising star during training camp, has amassed 158 scrimmage yards through six games in a depth role. Meanwhile, Edwards-Helaire has 256 rushing yards, 137 receiving yards, and five touchdowns this season. However, his productivity has declined as of late; he has just 68 total yards and zero touchdowns over the course of his last two contests. Both backs should be viewed as RB3 options in fantasy football this week.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Has Tough Week 7 Matchup

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has taken a major drop in fantasy production over the last two weeks, posting consecutive games with single-digit fantasy points after looking like a borderline RB1 over the first four games. Edwards-Helaire will try to get back on track this week, but it's likely going to be tough sledding for him against a 49ers defense that allows the fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position. CEH is a risky RB2/3 play.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Quiet In Loss To Bills

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire struggled to find running room against one of the NFL's best run defenses in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. He touched the ball nine times, finishing with 33 yards. He wasn't targeted in the passing game. It was the worst fantasy game of the season for Edwards-Helaire, which is especially notable since Week 5 had previously been his worst fantasy game of the season. There have been some worrisome signs with Edwards-Helaire's usage this season, and it looks like he's now become dependent on touchdowns to find value.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Has Tough Week 6 Matchup

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is a risky fantasy play on Sunday against the Bills in a game that should favor the passing offenses. After seeing 19 carries in Week 4, CEH dropped down to just nine carries last week, making the fourth time in five games that he had single-digit carries. With Jerick McKinnon and Isaih Pacheco behind him to siphon off some snaps, this is one of the times when it might be best to fade Edwards-Helaire in DFS. In season-long, consider him a low-end RB2, though his day could easily be salvaged by a receiving touchdown, since this game should feature a lot of pass attempts.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Quiet Against Vegas

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire led the Chiefs with nine carries in Monday's win over the Raiders, but he finished the day with just 16 rushing yards. He also added three catches for 20 yards. Edwards-Helaire was just a yard away from salvaging his day and finding the end zone on one of those receptions, but he fell just short. Edwards-Helaire has been KC's lead back this season, but he's been fairly inconsistent. His last three weeks have seen him finish with zero, 92 and 15 yards, respectively. Volume still makes him an RB2/3 play, though.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Has Risk In Week 5

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire saw a season-high 19 carries last week against the Buccaneers, but there's some risk with him heading into Monday night's matchup against a Raiders team that has allowed the 10th-fewest rushing yards per game this season. With Isiah Pacheco cutting into his snaps, there's a chance that Edwards-Helaire has his first fantasy dud of the season, though his touchdown upside keeps him in the low-end RB2 conversation.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Finds End Zone Twice

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire carried the ball 19 times in Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, finishing with 92 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a two-yard touchdown, his lone reception. Edwards-Helaire's usage had been a concern coming into this game, but he re-established himself as the leader of the backfield, even though Isiah Pacheco had 11 carries. Consider Edwards-Helaire to be a solid fantasy RB2 going forward.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Week 4 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has put up some strong numbers so far this season, but a lot of his production has come from touchdowns. Last week, he found the end zone, but totaled zero yards on seven carries. Regression is likely coming for Edwards-Helaire. A Week 4 matchup against a Buccaneers team that allows the fifth-fewest rushing yards per game might be the time for that regression. Edwards-Helaire is a risky flex option.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Stuck In Committee Backfield?

    The Kansas City Chiefs still don't seem comfortable using running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire in most third-down situations, and until they do, the Chiefs backfield is likely to remain a committee involving Edwards-Helaire, Jerick McKinnon and rookie Isiah Pacheco. However, CEH does have three touchdowns in the first three games, and while that pace is not sustainable, he seems to be the team's preferred option near the goal line. The 23-year-old has mostly disappointed since the Chiefs made him a first-round pick in 2020, but he is averaging a career-high 5.3 yards per carry on 22 rushes through three games to go along with the three scores. A Week 4 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' tough run defense won't be easy, but Edwards-Helaire remains the most attractive fantasy back in KC as things stand now.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Finishes With Zero Rushing Yards

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire found the end zone in Sunday's loss to the Colts, salvaging what was an otherwise disappointing day. Edwards-Helaire run the ball seven times, finishing with zero rushing yards. He did catch five passes for 39 yards, tying for the team lead in receptions. Jerick McKinnon ate into CEH's rushing attempts, as both players ended up with seven. Edwards-Helaire is still a solid fantasy player going forward, but Sunday featured some worrying indicators.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire's Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is a solid fantasy RB2 play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Edwards-Helaire hasn't gotten a ton of rushing attempts this season, but he's made the most of the ones he's had, as he averaged 9.25 yards per carry last week against the Chargers. CEH also has two receiving touchdowns this season. This week, he faces a Colts team that struggled last week against the Jags; if the game script looks similar this week, expect to see Edwards-Helaire set a new season high in rushing attempts.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Heavily Involved On Thursday

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire showed that this is fully his backfield in Thursday's 27-24 win over the Chargers. He led the team with eight carries for 74 yards, including a longest run of 52. He also caught four passes for 44 yards. Edwards-Helaire was also off the field for a bit in the first half after his knee was stepped on, so Jerick McKinnon's four carries and Isiah Pacheco's two carries are possibly higher than they should have been. It's clear through two games that Edwards-Helaire has the trust of this coaching staff. Consider him a solid fantasy RB2 going forward.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire caught a pair of touchdowns in Week 1 and will now look to follow that up with a big game on Thursday night against the Chargers. CEH had just seven carries and three receptions in the opener, but he made a big impact. He won't enjoy those kind of numbers every week, but he's a solid RB2 in fantasy right now. Edwards-Helaire rushed for 100 yards in the first meeting with the Chargers last season.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Is RB3 Play In Week 1

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire looks poised to start for the Chiefs this year, but until we get a sense of what his workload looks like, he should be considered a fantasy RB3. The former first-round pick played 10 games last year, finishing with 646 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns. He could wind up being a solid RB2 if he can wrest control of this backfield early, but it's still a bit of a "wait and see" situation.

  • Breakout Year Coming For Clyde Edwards-Helaire?

    ESPN's Dan Graziano wonders if this is the year that Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will break out. The Chiefs have to decide on his fifth-year option next May, and if he doesn't live up to his first-round pedigree, it will be easy for the team to cut ties with him after this year. However, the Chiefs remain high on Edwards-Helaire and what he can do in this offense. The biggest issue for CEH has been staying healthy, but he's done a good job of that so far this summer. With Ronald Jones barely making the roster, the 23-year-old could be a post-hype breakout type for both the Chiefs and fantasy managers in 2022. His two disappointing seasons in KC have dropped his fantasy price to an RB3/flex type, too, so Edwards-Helaire could turn out to be an excellent value pick if he can just stay on the field.
