Clyde Edwards-Helaire Worth Watching Ahead Of Week 3

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

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

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

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

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.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Goes Backward On Saturday

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was tackled for a three-yard loss on his lone rush attempt in Saturday's 33-32 preseason win over the Cleveland Browns. Well, that's not the right direction the 24-year-old wanted to go in for the preseason finale. It ends a nondescript three weeks for Edwards-Helaire, who ran eight times for a mere 14 yards and caught four passes for 23 yards this month. Isiah Pacheco returned for this one, but his absence throughout the preseason allowed the Chiefs to get a longer look at CEH, who just couldn't get going at any point. It may be a stretch to deem CEH's roster spot to be in jeopardy, but trade rumors involving the former first-round pick may continue to swirl anyway.
