The Chiefs re-signed RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire to a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. CEH drew very little interest in free agency after setting career lows last year with 223 rushing yards and 3.2 yards per carry. He'll be no higher than No. 2 on Kansas City's depth chart behind Isiah Pacheco. We'll see if the Chiefs add to the backfield in the draft. Edwards-Helaire is not worth a pick in early best-ball drafts.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (ankle, toe) is active for today's game against the Ravens. He missed the week's first two practices before a limited Friday and "questionable" listing on the final injury report. Pacheco's gotta be somewhere south of full strength. But we're also seen no indication his role will be limited today. It's tough to downgrade him as a fantasy option on a two-game slate. Perhaps the combo of toe and ankle issues at least gives Clyde Edwards-Helaire some upside, especially if Pacheco gets knocked out of the game at any point.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon is unlikely to play this postseason, according to Chiefs Digest's Matt Derrick. McKinnon had surgery on January 2 for a core muscle injury and a fractured pelvis, per Derrick, which is expected to sideline him at least 6-8 weeks. McKinnon's absence leaves Clyde Edwards-Helaire as Kansas City's No. 2 RB -- and Isiah Pacheco in a workhorse role.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco is not expected to play today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like Pacheo will be active but only used in an emergency with the Chiefs having nothing to gain vs. the Chargers. RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and La'Mical Perine will handle backfield duties.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (concussion, shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is surprisingly inactive. That leaves only RBs La’Mical Perine and Keaontay Ingram behind Pacheco, who should be in for a big workload today.

Chiefs RBs Isiah Pacheco (concussion, shoulder) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) are expected to play vs. the Bengals today, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms. Cleared from his concussion, Pacheco should be ready for something close to his usual role in this one. He's inside the top 10 of the Week 17 RB Rankings.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (concussion, shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Bengals on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's surprising that Pacheco was able to get cleared after sustaining a concussion on Monday. But if he's active tomorrow, he should be ready for his usual role against a bad Cincinnati run defense. Pacheco is a RB1 for Week 17, while RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire would now be a desperation fantasy play.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (concussion, shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals. He only returned to a limited pracitce on Friday, but HC Andy Reid reportedly sounded optimistic about Pacheco’s availability for Sunday. We’ll keep you updated on his status. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) is also listed as questionable after missing the final two practices of the week.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (concussion, shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. He's unlikely to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. With RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) on IR, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire is in for a hefty workload against Cincinnati's leaky run defense.

RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire looks likely to lead the Chiefs' Week 17 backfield against the Bengals. Isiah Pacheco left Monday's loss to the Raiders with a concussion, and Jerick McKinnon landed on IR ahead of that game. CEH managed just 6 yards on 4 carries against the Raiders, just to make sure you remember his limitations. But he did post 42 receiving yards in catching all three of his targets. CEH will be worth a pickup where available this week because K.C. faces a soft Bengals defense. Cincinnati allowed 397 yards to the Steelers and 424 to the Vikings the past two weeks. The Bengals have allowed seven opponents to reach 400 total yards this season and yielded 24+ points in five of their past seven games.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco suffered a concussion in the second half against the Raiders and has been ruled out for the game. The timing (Monday afternoon) cuts down on Pacheco's chances of making it back for a Sunday afternoon meeting with the Bengals in Week 17. If Pacheco's out, that would leave Clyde Edwards-Helaire to lead the backfield against a soft Cincinnati defense. (Jerick McKinnon's on IR.) The Bengals allowed 397 total yards to the Steelers and 424 to the Vikings over the past two weeks. CEH would merit low-RB2 consideration if he's set to start for K.C. in Week 17. We'll watch Pacheco's status throughout the week.

The Chiefs are expecting to get RB Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) back for next Monday's game vs. the Raiders. "He'll be back this week," HC Andy Reid said Monday. "He'll be good to go this week, unless there's further setbacks. But right now, everything's positive for him to go." Pacheco had emerged as Kansas City's feature back before hurting his shoulder, averaging 17.0 carries and 2.8 targets over his last four games. Expect him back in a similar role in Week 16 and beyond, barring another injury. Pacheco can be penciled back into fantasy lineups, while Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon should go back to benches.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire totaled 13 carries for 37 rushing yards with 4 catches for 64 yards and a TD as a receiver in Week 15 vs. the Patriots. He appeared on 61.5% of the team’s offensive snaps on Sunday and out-touched teammate Jerick McKinnon 17 to 7. As long as Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) remains out, Edwards-Helaire should carry fantasy appeal as Kansas City’s lead runner and will have a tremendous opportunity to pay off in lineups in Week 16 vs. the Raiders (eighth-best RB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed).

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. HC Andy Reid revealed Friday that Pacheco had cleanup surgery on his shoulder but has a chance to return for Week 16. We'll track his status next week. Pacheco's absence this weekend will again leave Kansas City's backfield to Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon. Those guys split snaps last week, with CEH handling 11 carries and four targets to McKinnon's four carries and three targets.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Andy Reid said. Pacheco's shoulder injury isn't long-term, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but it's certainly possible that Pacheco misses this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. That'd again leave the backfield to RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon. Those guys split snaps last week, with CEH handling 11 carries and four targets to McKinnon's four carries and three targets.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire played 2 more snaps than RB Jerick McKinnon Sunday against the Bills, with Isiah Pacheco out. The gap might have been larger if CEH hadn't needed to leave during the second half to replace his ripped pants. As it was, Edwards-Helaire carried 11 times to McKinnon's 4 and edged McKinnon 4-3 in targets (though McKinnon won 3-2 in receptions). McKinnon also scored the only RB TD for the game, on a 7-yard run in the second quarter. We'll see about Pacheco's chances to return from the shoulder injury in Week 15. If he can't, CEH and McKinnon still look like fairly equal fantasy entities.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire will start today's game vs. the Bills but is expected to split carries with RB Jerick McKinnon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fantasy owners starting Edwards-Helaire need him to control carries because McKinnon figures to handle most of the pass-catching work. See where both guys sit in the Week 14 RB Rankings.

Asked Friday whether RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be the Chiefs' starter Sunday against the Bills in Isiah Pacheco's absence, HC Andy Reid said: "Yes. We've got different personnel groups. But yes, [he] is the No. 1 guy, yes." That doesn't necessarily mean CEH is the "lead back," but it sure seems to indicate he'll get a significant portion of the Week 14 work -- and might be the better bet for touches than Jerick McKinnon. The uncertainty of the work split makes all Chiefs RBs risky, of course, with practice-squad RBs La'Mical Perine, Deneric Prince, and Keaontay Ingram also potentially in the mix. No Chiefs RB cracks the top 24 in our Week 14 rankings. But there's some upside to CEH and McKinnon if you need a deeper play.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills. HC Andy Reid said, "we'll see" when asked whether Pacheco will go on IR. We'll see if Kansas City makes that move on Saturday, but it at least sounds like Pacheco could be looking at a multi-game absence. Try to keep him stashed on fantasy rosters at least until we see if he lands on IR. His absence this weekend will leave Kansas City's backfield to Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon. RBs La'Mical Perine, Deneric Prince, and Keontay Ingram are on the practice squad. Edwards-Helaire is probably the best bet for carries -- but we could also see Kansas City go extremely pass-heavy sans Pacheco. McKinnon figures to dominate passing-game work and could also mix in for 8+ carries. See our updated projections for the Chiefs backfield.
