Shark Bites

The Chiefs selected LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire with the 32nd overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. CEH was a huge part of LSU’s high-powered offense this past season, taking 215 carries for 1,414 yards (6.6 YPC) and 16 TDs. He also ranked 3rd on the team with 55 catches and 5th with 453 receiving yards. The biggest knock on Edwards-Helaire is that he did virtually nothing prior to 2019. He barely got on the field as a true freshman and played behind plodder Nick Brossette in 2018, averaging just 4.5 yards per carry and tallying 11 catches. So you could argue that Edwards-Helaire is mostly a product of LSU’s record-setting 2019 offense. But turn on the tape and it’s tough to not get excited about this guy. He has excellent vision, agility and balance, earning Pro Football Focus’ 2nd-best rushing grade in the nation last year. And he’s 1 of, if not the best, pass-catching RB prospects in this year’s rookie class. That makes him an excellent fit in Kansas City. With 1st-round draft capital, Edwards-Helaire should be expected to step right in as the Chiefs’ lead back.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) has been activated from IR. It makes him eligible to play in Sunday's Super Bowl, although it's still unclear if he will. Edwards-Helaire has been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 11. If he does play against the Eagles, he'll likely be used sparingly behind RBs Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Thursday that RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Jaguars on Saturday. CEH was designated to return from IR and has been practicing this week, but he evidently needs a bit more time to recover from his November 20 high-ankle sprain. Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon will continue to handle the majority of backfield work for Kansas City this weekend, with Ronald Jones potentially sprinkling in.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) has been designated to return from IR and practiced on Tuesday. He's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 11. We'll see if CEH is cleared to play in this weekend's Divisional Round game vs. the Jaguars, but his role was dwindling before that injury. Edwards-Helaire totaled just 10 carries and 5 targets on 38 snaps over his last 3 games.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (high-ankle sprain) appears to be nearing a return from IR. HC Andy Reid said ahead of Saturday's win over Seattle that CEH is "working his tail off" and "getting close," according to Pete Sweeney of Arrowhead Pride. We're certainly not playing to stick Edwards-Helaire back into fantasy football lineups this season. But he could complicate the work split for RBs Jerick McKinnon and Isiah Pacheco if he gets back to the active roster for Week 17 or 18.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been placed on IR with his high-ankle sprain. He'll miss at least the next 4 weeks and can be dropped from redraft rosters. We'll see if CEH's absence gets RB Ronald Jones on Kansas City's active roster on game days, but this now figures to be a 2-man backfield with Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.
