Mike's Thoughts: Drafted CEH 3.12 (36) in 12-team Superflex best ball (FFPC format) in early August.

15 Saquon Barkley, NYG 10 24.6 1.12 7.7

Mike's Thoughts: Given concerns about Barkley even starting the season on the active roster, and there isn't much reason to be bullish about the Giants offense, I am fine to fade Saquon for now.

Tier 4
16 Chris Carson, SEA 9 27.0 3.03 15.7

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has been one of the best values in the NFL over the last three seasons, and he was rewarded with a new contract this offseason. Now, he stands alone in a Seahawks backfield that lacks a consistent threat behind him. Other players on the roster have mostly been guys that have filled in during injury or to spell Carson. Carson figures to see a massive workload this season. Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas are really the only other names of note in this backfield, but with Carson's extension now in place, they are likely delegated to backup roles for this season.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Has Costly Fumble In Week 2 Loss

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire put together another underwhelming performance in a Week 2 loss versus the Baltimore Ravens. The sophomore running back rushed the ball 13 times for 46 yards and came up with a costly fumble near the end of the fourth quarter that ended any chance of a Chiefs comeback and secured a Ravens victory. With the Chiefs operating a pass heavy offense, CEH has to make the most of his opportunities to provide value to managers and he has struggled to do that thus far with just 89 yards on 27 carries this season. As part of an explosive offense, Edwards-Helaire is still valuable, but managers shouldn't expect much consistency out of him at the moment with Patrick Mahomes and the passing game being the prime focus of the offense. Edwards-Helaire will look for better results and his first touchdown in Week 3 versus the division rival Los Angeles Chargers.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Will Look To Improve In Week 2

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to improve off his 43 rushing yards in Week 1 with a Week 2 matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens. CEH didn't do much on the ground in Week 1, but he did secure all three of his targets for 29 yards. The sophomore running back will face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 and despite the Ravens defense getting torched in the pass game, they held the Raiders running backs to just 45 yards on 16 attempts. The Chiefs continue to operate a pass-heavy offense, but CEH is clearly the lead in the team's backfield. In Week 2, Edwards-Helaire should be treated as a RB2, but he will need to start picking up more receptions or rushing yards to maintain that status throughout the year.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire 100 Percent Healthy And Ready To Go

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle), who dealt with an ankle injury last month, said he's "100 percent" healthy and "ready to go" for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Edwards-Helaire should be good to go as the leader of Kansas City's backfield in the season-opener ahead of backups Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon. CEH wasn't as consistent as fantasy managers had hoped in his rookie season, but he still provided some big games and is a great long-term fit in this explosive offense. He could see more volume in 2021 as well. Against a Browns defense that was one of the better units against the run last year, Edwards-Helaire is on the RB1/2 fringe for this weekend's game against Cleveland.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Trending Toward Playing Week 1

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) will be ready to roll Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. There was some skepticism that Edwards-Helaire could miss Week 1 following an ankle sprain during a preseason bout against the Arizona Cardinals; however, that was put to rest by coach Andy Reid. Reid said that CEH practiced the past week and "did a nice job." Reid added that he thinks the Chiefs will be OK regarding the running back position. Although Edwards-Healire missed the playoff matchup against the Browns last season, he steps into Week 1 in a favorable matchup. This could be a high-scoring meeting, so Edwards-Helaire is a must-start in all formats. DFS managers should consider starting CEH, as his salary is on the lower end of other top-tier running backs.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Sprains Ankle

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was injured during Friday's preseason bout against the Arizona Cardinals. The sophomore didn't last long before suffering a sprained ankle, although fortunately, he avoided anything more serious. Selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the former LSU Tiger appeared in 13 games during his inaugural campaign, finishing with 803 yards and four touchdowns off 181 attempts (4.4 YPC). He also got involved as a pass-catcher, totaling 36 receptions for nearly 300 yards and another score. Nonetheless, fantasy managers shouldn't let this latest development derail their draft plans. However, after Edwards-Helaire recently revealed he had offseason gallbladder surgery, his health is something to consider moving ahead.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Gets Four Carries

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire played two series in Saturday's preseason opener versus the San Francisco 49ers. CEH rushed four times for 16 yards and also caught his only target for five yards. Edwards-Helaire is expected to see the bulk of carries in the Chiefs backfield, but veteran running back Jerick McKinnon looked good on Saturday and could work his way into the rotation. Edwards-Helaire slowed down as his rookie season went on and also dealt with ankle and hip injuries towards the end of the regular season. In his rookie season, CEH rushed the ball 181 times for 803 yards and four touchdowns. He also contributed with 36 receptions for 297 yards and one touchdown through the passing game. Edwards-Helaire should improve in his sophomore campaign and is a fringe RB1/RB2 heading into the 2021 season.

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire Remains A Good Option In Sophomore Season

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire should be expected to remain at the top of the depth chart to enter the 2021 season. CEH started the season on a high note, but struggled down the stretch. Edwards-Helaire also dealt with ankle and hip injuries towards the end of the season and missed three games. CEH averaged 61.8 yards per game on the ground and 22.8 yards per game through the air with a total of five touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving). CEH only rushed for over 100 yards twice in a game and the third most was 79 yards in Week 15. Despite those numbers, CEH is still a very talented running back, but is affected by being in a pass heavy offense. The good news is that he is involved in the pass game. CEH should be considered as a low-end RB1 in one of the most powerful offenses heading into the 2021 campaign. Those drafting CEH will want to consider running backs Darrel Williams, Jerick McKinnon and Darwin Thompson in order as insurance policies.
