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 Jerick McKinnon (groin) is active for tonight's game vs. the 49ers. It's a surprise after HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that McKinnon had a "slim" chance to play. He evidently made more progress than expected throughout the week. We're still not expecting McKinnon to play a major role in his first action since mid-December, although he could siphon some passing-down snaps from RB Isiah Pacheco.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that chances are "slim" RB Jerick McKinnon plays in the Super Bowl. He was designated to return this past weekend but evidently isn't ready for game action after early-January surgery to repair a core muscle injury and fractured pelvis. RB Isiah Pacheco should continue to dominate Chiefs backfield work vs. the 49ers on Sunday.

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 Isiah Pacheco (ankle, toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Ravens. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. While Pacheco clearly isn't at 100%, we haven't heard anything to suggest that he's in danger of missing this one. We'll keep you updated on his status and get Kansas City's inactives around 1:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco has missed the first two practices of the week with ankle and toe injuries. He told the media earlier this week that he'd be ready for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Ravens, but Pacheco's status will be worth checking back in on when we get Kansas City's final injury report on Friday afternoon.

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 (shoulder) put in a full practice on Tuesday. He was held out of the meaningless finale but will be ready for workhorse duties in Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. Pacheco sits atop this week's RB Rankings.

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 (quad, shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. There’s no reason for him to play much, if at all, with his team locked into the AFC’s No. 3 seed. Pacheco should not be in Week 18 fantasy lineups. We’ll see which RBs end up active for the Chiefs on Sunday.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes won't play vs. the Chargers this weekend, HC Andy Reid said Wednesday. QB Blaine Gabbert will start in a meaningless game for the Chiefs, who are locked in as the AFC's No. 3 seed. Reid also said that "some" other starters will not play on Sunday. We imagine that'll include TE Travis Kelce, RB Isiah Pacheco, and potentially WR Rashee Rice. This is an offense to avoid in Week 18 fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco ran 18 times for 130 yards and added 7 catches for 35 yards and a TD. When healthy, Pacheco has been the focal point of the Chiefs offense. His speed and receiving ability was on display against Cincinnati. Pacheco led the team in targets and receptions and caught Patrick Mahomes' only scoring toss of the game. Pacheco has likely secured the starting job for at least 2024 and remains under contract through 2025. That said, Pacheco might have to share more work in 2024 than he has with Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire this season. There's potential for Pacheco to be overrated in early best-ball drafting. We'll have our initial 2024 rankings out before the end of the playoffs to help you position him appropriately.

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.

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.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) has been placed on IR. He's out for at least the final three games of the regular season, plus Kansas City's playoff opener. RB Isiah Pacheco is in for a heavy workload while McKinnon is out.
