Buy/Sell/Hold Report #2


SELL Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Chiefs

The last 2 weeks have brought 2 of Edwards-Helaire’s top 5 fantasy outings as a pro. So why sell him now?

Because his usage hasn’t changed. In fact, Edwards-Helaire set season lows last week in snap rate (52%) and route rate (46%). RB Darrel Williams, meanwhile, played a season-high 36% of the offensive snaps and tallied a season-high 10 carries.

We don’t expect Williams to overtake Edwards-Helaire. But he might continue to play more than you think. And Williams sure looks like he’s the Chiefs’ goal-line back. He’s received all 3 of the team’s carries inside the 5-yard line through 4 weeks.

So Edwards-Helaire isn’t getting those all-important goal-line opportunities. And his passing-game role has been underwhelming. He’s totaled just 8 targets this season -- tied for 41st among RBs.

Add it all up and Edwards-Helaire ranks 18th in our Expected Fantasy Points metric. He’s a RB2 going forward that might net you RB1 value in a trade.
