  • Isiah Pacheco Gets 15 Touches In AFC Championship Game

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco saw a lot of usage in Sunday's AFC Championship Game win over the Bengals, with 10 carries and five receptions. He didn't produce a ton on the ground as he finished with just 26 rushing yards, but that was enough to lead the team, as the rest of the Chiefs combined for 10 carries and 16 yards. The passing game was there Pacheco made a real impact, as he turned his five catches into 59 yards. He likely won't get quite as much usage against the Eagles in the Super Bowl, but it's an encouraging sign to see how much more usage he had than the team's other running backs.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has Added Appeal In AFC Title Game

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco played a solid game last week against the Jaguars, carrying the ball 12 times for 95 yards. On Sunday against the Bengals, Pacheco projects to be an intriguing DFS option because quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) is expected to be a little limited, increasing the potential number of touches for KC running backs. While Jerick McKinnon has carved out a role as the pass-catching back, Pacheco has been the main guy to tote the rock, and he found the end zone when these teams met in the regular season. Make sure to sprinkle him throughout your DFS lineups.

  • Isiah Pacheco Runs Well In Saturday's Win

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco carried the ball 12 times for 95 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. With quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) banged up, the team had to rely more than usual on the run game, and Pacheco put together a solid showing, averaging 7.9 yards per carry. He also caught his only target for six yards. He'll likely have a smaller role next week if Mahomes is good to go, but Pacheco will be an intriguing DFS play because of his ability to make plus plays in key situation.

  • Isiah Pacheco Is Appealing Fantasy Play In Divisional Round

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco had one of his best games of the season the last time the Chiefs took on the Jacksonville Jaguars, carrying the ball 16 times for 82 yards, his third-best yardage total of the 2022 season. He'll get another chance against the Jags on Saturday when the two sides meet in the divisional round. Pacheco ended the regular season on a good note, finding the end zone in both Week 17 and Week 18. Pacheco is an appealing DFS play on Saturday, especially considering he's just the eighth-most expensive running back on the DraftKings slate. He probably needs a touchdown to fully pay off, but his recent scoring streak increases the appeal here.

  • Isiah Pacheco Finds End Zone In Week 18

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco scored a touchdown for the second week in a row in Saturday's 31-13 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. He finished the game with eight carries for 64 yards, surprisingly losing some touches to Ronald Jones II. Overall, Pacheco ran the ball 170 times for 830 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie. He'll be an intriguing RB2 in 2023 fantasy drafts, but the Chiefs backfield always seems like a bit of a mystery, which limits his appeal a little bit.

  • Isiah Pacheco Is Touchdown Dependent In Week 18

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco has had a solid rookie season, but his lack of upside in the passing game has rendered him a touchdown-dependent RB3 option when it comes to fantasy. Last week, Pacheco managed to find the end zone, but he also saw his fewest carries since Week 9, as he ended up with just nine of them, plus a pair of targets. On Saturday against the Raiders, Pacheco is essentially in the same boat he's been in: if you're playing him, you probably need a touchdown for that to pay off.

  • Isiah Pacheco Finds End Zone In Week 17

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco saw his fewest rushing attempts since Week 9 in Sunday's win over the Broncos, but the rookie managed to finish with solid numbers for fantasy because of a rushing touchdown. Pacheco finished the game with nine carries for 31 yards, plus two catches for 18 yards. Heading into Week 18, Pacheco should be considered a touchdown-dependent RB2/3 option.

  • Isiah Pacheco Is Touchdown-Dependent In Week 17

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco has seen double-digit carries in seven consecutive games but has also failed to find the end zone in the past three, and with his lack of usage in the passing game, he looks like a player with a relatively solid fantasy floor that needs to find the end zone to really pay off in value. That might be a tough proposition on Sunday against a Broncos team that boasts the seventh-best scoring defense in the NFL. Pacheco is a fine fantasy player, as long as managers go into this game knowing that he'll need to get into the end zone to pay off.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has Decent Showing In Week 16

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco carried the ball 14 times for 58 yards in Saturday's win over the Seattle Seahawks, plus added one catch for 32 yards. It wasn't Pacheco's best game, but he ran for 4.1 yards per carry and continued to have a sizable edge in carries, with Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones combining for just six. Pacheco's a low-ceiling, decent-floor RB2/3 option heading into next week's meeting with the Broncos.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has Plenty Of Appeal In Week 16

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco has now seen double-digit carries in six consecutive games, and while his fantasy value is capped by his lack of usage in the passing game, he should be a solid RB2/3 option against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16. What makes Pacheco especially appealing this week is how Seattle's run defense has struggled, allowing the second-most rushing yards per game in the NFL.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has Strong Upside Against Texans

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco has had double-digit carries in five consecutive games, and on Sunday he gets to face a Houston Texans defense that's allowed the most rushing yards in the NFL. While Pacheco's lack of pass-catching upside impacts his fantasy ceiling, he should still be considered a solid RB2 play because of this matchup. Pacheco has a chance to have his second 100-yard game of the season.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has Solid Showing Against Broncos

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco carried the ball 13 times for 70 yards in Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos. He also caught three passes for 23 yards. While his backfield mate Jerick McKinnon will get the headlines for his two touchdowns, both of those were on pass plays, and Pacheco out-carried him 13-6. Pacheco should be considered a solid low-end RB2 play based on his volume, which has remained consistent over the past month.

  • Isiah Pacheco Should See Plenty Of Work In Week 14

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco has seen double-digit carries in four consecutive games, and there's no reason to think that should change on Sunday against the Broncos, as he's seeing the majority of the team's work on the ground despite only playing over 50% of the team's snaps twice this season. The Broncos rank 19th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game this season. Consider Pacheco a solid RB2 play this week.

  • Isiah Pacheco Scores Touchdown Against Bengals

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco carried the ball 14 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He also caught two passes for 16 yards. This now makes four games in a row with double-digit carries for Pacheco, as well as two weeks in a row with a rushing touchdown. It took a bit, but the preseason hype on Pacheco is finally paying off. He's a weekly RB2 option right now.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has RB2 Appeal In Week 13

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco has locked himself in as the team's No. 1 running back, with the rookie toting the ball 22 times last week against the Rams. That makes three games in a row with double-digit carries, and at least 80 all-purpose yards. It's been difficult to trust any Chiefs running back during the Patrick Mahomes era because of how pass-oriented the team is, but Pacheco's trends look good here. The Bengals have had a solid run defense though, allowing the ninth-fewest rushing yards to opposing running backs, so there's definitely still risk here with Pacheco.

  • Isiah Pacheco Dominates Backfield Touches In Week 12

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco had 22 of the team's 30 carries in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Rams, finishing with 69 rushing yards and a touchdown. He also had a 17-yard reception. Pacheco has taken clear control of this Kansas City backfield over the last few games, and it's clear that Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones won't cut into that role very much. Pacheco should be viewed as an RB2 option because of his workload, though the Chiefs offense is usually fairly pass-heavy.

  • Isiah Pacheco Has Low-End RB2 Appeal For Week 12

    Kansas City Chiefs running Isiah Pacheco has taken the reins of the team's backfield, and last week produced the first 100-yard rushing game for the team all season. He now has 189 yards over the last two games. But he also has zero targets over that time and the Chiefs offense is notorious for how pass-heavy it is, so while Pacheco has played well, he has a lower floor than a lot of other RB2 options, lowering his value ahead of Sunday's meeting with a Rams team that allows the fourth-fewest rushing yards per game in the NFL.

  • Isiah Pacheco Rushes For Over 100 Yards

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco had the best 100-plus yard rushing game of his NFL career on Sunday night against the Chargers, carrying the ball 15 times for 107 yards. He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Pacheco looks like he's firmly claimed the lead back role in KC, as Jerick McKinnon had six carries and Clyde Edwards-Helaire had two before exiting with an ankle injury. Because this offense relies so heavily on the pass game, it's hard to fully trust Pacheco in fantasy, because there will likely still be some dud weeks, but he should be considered an RB3 play going forward.

  • Isiah Pacheco Available On Sunday Night

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco (quadriceps) is off the injury report and will play on Sunday night against the Chargers. The rookie was dealing with a quad issue. However, he practiced in full all week, so his availability was never truly in question. Pacheco is coming off the best game of his young career, totaling 82 yards off 16 touches in the win over the Jaguars. While he hasn't had a touchdown since Week 1, his presence will lower Clyde Edwards-Helaire's ceiling in Week 11. With that said, Pacheco should be viewed as a flex option in deep fantasy setups.

  • Isiah Pacheco Leads Chiefs In Rushing Yards Against Jags

    Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco lost a fumble in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but that didn't keep head coach Andy Reid from feeding him. Pacheco had 16 carries in the game, while the rest of the team's running backs combined for just two, with Jerick McKinnon and Michael Burton each getting a touch. Pacheco has 82 rushing yards. He wasn't targeted in the pass game, while McKinnon had eight targets. It looks like Pacheco is RB1 in KC now, which isn't a role that has a lot of upside in fantasy. Consider him an RB2/3 borderline play.
