Clyde Edwards-Helaire Worth Watching Ahead Of Week 3

Saturday, September 23, 9:29 PM

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.

Jerome Ford An RB2 In Week 4

Thursday, September 28, 6:25 PM

Cleveland Browns running back Jerome Ford (shoulder) has scored three touchdowns over his past two games. The second-year running back will look to keep the hot streak going in Week 4's home matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Ford popped up on the injury report on Wednesday as a limited participant in practice but he was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday, seemingly putting him in line to suit up on Sunday. If he were to suffer a setback and ultimately not play this weekend, Kareem Hunt and possibly Pierre Strong Jr. would both be in line for larger roles. For now, fantasy managers can pencil Ford in as an RB2 for Week 4, but be sure to check back on Friday's post-practice injury report. He should find room to run against a Baltimore defense that is allowing the 17th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs through three games.
