Draft note
by John Paulsen
There’s no denying that Kansas City is a great landing spot for any running back. Prior to Damien Williams’ opt-out, GM Brett Veach said that the backfield will be a “shared load” and that Williams will “come in as the starting running back” while the rookie “will have to come in and compete for playing time.” With Williams out of the way, Edwards-Helaire has a fairly clear path to lead back touches, though last year’s offseason star, Darwin Thompson, Darrel Williams and free agent acquisition DeAndre Washington will have something to say about it. Edwards-Helaire has a wider range of outcomes than the running backs that will be drafted around him since we’re not exactly sure how Kansas City plans to utilize him this year. The Chiefs could also add someone like LeSean McCoy or Devonta Freeman to the mix.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Denver Broncos

The Chiefs leaned heavily on Clyde Edward-Helaire last week, giving him a season-high 30 touches (four receptions). He finished with a nice season-high of 169 yards, although he didn't score a touchdown for the fifth consecutive week. Don't expect to see this type of volume moving forward as the Chiefs brought in Le'Veon Bell to this backfield. Until we actually see the Chiefs play, it's impossible to predict how CEH and Bell will split touches. For now, we'd assume CEH will still be heavily involved considering his production. We're projecting around 20 touches for CEH this week and 5-7 touches for Bell.

Perhaps a bigger threat to CEH's value this week is a brutal matchup against the Broncos who are No. 1 in aFPA to running backs. A big reason for that is Denver has only allowed one total touchdown to running backs this season, the fewest in the league. CEH is still a low-end RB1 play this week.
