News: 1 day agoEdwards-Helaire totaled three carries for five yards during Sunday's 31-17 victory over the Raiders.
Spin: Edwards-Helaire rotated in for 12 offensive snaps in Sunday's clash, marking an uptick in his playing time compared to other recent contests. That was likely due to Jerick McKinnon (groin) sitting out the affair, opening more reps behind Isiah Pacheco. The same could be true next week if McKinnon remains sidelined, but CEH didn't produce much with the added snaps, so there doesn't appear to be much upside to his game aside from being a handcuff to Pacheco while McKinnon is out.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Edwards-Helaire has not panned out since being the first running back drafted in 2020. The LSU product has seen his carries and targets decrease each season and he has missed 17 regular-season games due to injury, including exactly seven in both 2021 and 2022. Edwards-Helaire's overall efficiency has been acceptable (his 2.42 YAC was actually sixth-best at RB last season), but he clearly fell behind Jerick McKinnon and presumed 2023 lead back Isiah Pacheco last season, and his days as lead back in Kansas City appear to be over. "CEH" is only 24 years old and the Chiefs' offense is obviously very good, so he remains worthy of bench consideration in 12-plus team leagues.
