The Kansas City Chiefs provided a peek into what their world will look like with Clyde Edwards-Helaire or Le'Veon Bell as the featured running back on Sunday. Edwards-Helaire played more (27 snaps to 17 for Bell) and got the ball more (nine touches to six for Bell).
But the way the Chiefs divided the backfield work in their 43-16 win over the Denver Broncos might not be the way they do it this Sunday against the New York Jets at Arrowhead Stadium (1 p.m. ET, CBS) or beyond. Bell just walked in their door last week after signing as a free agent. The Chiefs had 51 snaps against the Broncos in an unusual game.
While the news seemed better for CEH owners when the signing first happened (saying CEH would still be the starter), this story paints a picture of a specific game plan for the backs depending on the week and the opponent - which fantasy owners likely won't know ahead of time. The Chiefs also said both backs could be on the field at the same time, which happened for one snap this past week.
