Isiah Pacheco Considered A Game-Time Decision

Saturday, September 23, 8:12 PM

Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the upcoming Week 3 matchup against the Chicago Bears. Pacheco has been limited during practice this week, but still appears to be in good shape for this contest. Right now, the plan is for Pacheco to warm up with the team and see how his hamstring feels. That being said, Pacheco appears to be a legitimate game-time decision for Sunday's contest. If he sits out, Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire would likely split up the reps in the backfield. Neither of them have great fantasy appeal, but could be possible deep league options if Pacheco is unable to play.

Kenneth Walker III Ready For More In Week 3

Saturday, September 23, 3:30 AM

So far in 2023, Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III has been utilized as the team's featured back. After the team selected Zach Charbonnet in the second round of the NFL Draft, there was speculation that Walker's workload was under threat. The second-year player has 34 touches through the first two weeks of 2023, while Charbonnet and DeeJay Dallas have yet to break double digits. Against the Lions in Week 2, Walker only ran for 43 yards but was able to get into the end zone twice. This Sunday the Seahawks face the Carolina Panthers who have given up 264 yards on the ground so far this year. Walker is a must-start in Week 3.
