Clyde Edwards-Helaire Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that the Chiefs "really don't know how much" RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will play vs. the Cowboys today. "I’ve been told they’ll watch pregame warmups pretty closely," Palmer added. CEH has been sidelined since Week 5. And with RB Darrel Williams playing well in his place, there's no reason for Kansas City to rush Edwards-Helaire back into a big role. It's obviously a tricky fantasy situation that might be best to avoid in Week 11 lineups. If you're picking between the 2 Chiefs, we'd go Williams.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will be activated from IR and play vs. the Cowboys on Sunday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports. CEH has been out since Week 5, and RB Darrel Williams has played well in his absence. So it's unclear exactly how backfield touches will be divvied vs. Dallas. Over the first 4 games of the season, Edwards-Helaire averaged 14.5 carries and 2 targets to Williams' 5.3 carries and 1.3 targets. We'd expect the split to be closer on Sunday.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid wouldn't say Friday whether RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) will play vs. the Cowboys this weekend. Reid did say that CEH had a "good week of practice." Kansas City would need to activate Edwards-Helaire from IR by 4 pm ET on Saturday to make him eligible to play against Dallas. If he remains out, Darrel Williams will once again be a borderline RB1 play.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) has a "pretty good chance" to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. CEH got back to practice last week after going down back in Week 5. It's unclear what kind of role Edwards-Helaire will be returning to, though, after RB Darrel Williams played well in his absence.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Friday that it's "probably a stretch" for RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) to play vs. the Raiders on Sunday night. CEH got back on the practice field this week and looked good, according to Reid, but it sounds like he's targeting a Week 11 return. Kansas City would need to activate Edwards-Helaire by Saturday at 4 pm ET if he's going to play vs. Vegas, so we'll know for sure then. For now, it looks like Darrel Williams will get another game as lead back.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) has been designated to return and was on the practice field Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. CEH has been sidelined since spraining his knee back in Week 5. We'll see if he's ready to play against the Raiders on Sunday night. Edwards-Helaire figured to be in a timeshare with RB Darrel Williams when he does return.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) remains on IR and won't play vs. the Packers this weekend. HC Andy Reid only said Friday that CEH is "closer" to returning. (We'd hope so!). "We'll have to see how time handles it here in the next couple of weeks," Reid added. RB Darrel Williams will get at least 1 more start on Sunday -- and potentially more starts beyond that.

The Chiefs placed RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) on IR. So we now know that he'll miss at least the next 3 games vs. Washington, Tennessee and the Giants. It sounds like there's a good chance he's ready when first eligible to return in Week 9. Darrel Williams is the favorite to step in as Kansas City's lead back in the meantime, with Jerick McKinnon mixing in on passing downs.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire sprained the MCL in his left knee in Sunday night's loss to the Bills. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the injury will keep him out for "a few weeks." Kansas City has just Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon behind Edwards-Helaire on the roster, with Derrick Gore the only RB on the practice squad. We'd bet on them adding someone else this week, though anything short of a trade is unlikely to bring in a RB with immediate fantasy football relevance. Williams figures to be the lead back for an upside scoring matchup with Washington in Week 6. After that come soft RB matchups with the Titans, Giants and Packers.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire injured his left leg in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game vs. the Bills. He was in obvious pain and had to be helped off the field by teammates. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: K.C. quickly ruled him out for the game with a left knee injury.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Updates on his status since an ankle injury in Week 2 of the preseason have been sparse, but it looks like he'll be ready for his planned role in Sunday's opener vs. the Browns.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) and Darrel Williams (concussion) are on track to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Browns. “It looked like they’re moving around pretty good," Reid said. “I think we’ll be okay there.” Edwards-Helaire looked like a 3-down back in limited preseason action. We'll track his practice participation this week, but plan on having him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

The Chiefs released RB Darwin Thompson. They're set to enter the season with Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon atop the depth chart.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) practiced on Monday, according to beat writer Matt Derrick. It sounds like CEH was limited after injuring that ankle in Friday's preseason game -- but the fact that he was out there at all is an excellent sign. Edwards-Helaire should be ready to go come Week 1, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on his status.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire's sprain is on the inside of his ankle, according to The Kansas City's Star's Sam McDowell. With the disclaimer that we're not doctors, that sounds similar to the injury that's plagued Saints WR Michael Thomas. “They got to check it (today), do what they do there,” HC Andy Reid said. “It’s tender now. It doesn’t look like a high-ankle sprain. That’s always a good thing. They’ll double-check it." We'll update CEH's status as soon as we know more.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a “slight” ankle sprain in Week 2 of the preseason, per HC Andy Reid. Edwards-Helaire will undergo further examination today (Saturday). We’re about 3 weeks away from the opener, so there’s time for the 2nd-year back to avoid missing games if the injury is indeed minor. We’ll keep you posted.

According to SB Nation's Arrowhead Pride blog, the Chiefs "have their No. 1 and No. 2 backs in place in starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire and third-down back Darrel Williams." That would leave Jerick McKinnon fighting for 3rd on the depth chart, with Elijah McGuire, Darwin Thompson and Derrick Gore as competitors. This might be more opinion than fact, but it's also likely based on the team's usage of its RBs so far in training camp. If you're drafting, Darrel Williams should be the 2nd Chiefs RB off the board. Don't get too high on anyone other than CEH at the position for K.C., though. There's also still the possibility that the Chiefs add another RB.

The Chiefs believe they need to make more plays in the short and intermediate passing games, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Palmer notes that the team is looking to get the RBs more involved in the passing game (which we've heard multiple times this offseason) and adds that rookie TE Noah Gray could emerge as a factor with an increase in 2-TE sets. It's a situation to track this summer. There's certainly room for a 3rd viable fantasy option to emerge in Kansas City behind WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce. We might also just see Hill and Kelce set new career highs in target share this year.
