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.

Pierre Strong Jr. Punches In A Touchdown Monday Night

Tuesday, September 19, 11:36 AM

Cleveland Browns running back Pierre Strong Jr. got onto the field in the Monday night loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers because of the season-ending injury to Nick Chubb (knee) and took advantage by scoring his first touchdown of the season. Strong finished with only two carries for one yard and the goal-line touchdown while failing to haul in his only target in the passing game. The 24-year-old will now have an elevated role with Chubb out for the rest of the year, but Jerome Ford, who had a team-high 16 carries for 106 yards after Chubb left, should be the priority waiver-wire addition in all fantasy leagues this week if he's available. Strong is worth an addition as well for those managers that miss out on Ford in deeper leagues.
