Jones' addition means that the Chiefs will be making some cuts at running back as time gets closer to the regular season. Jones is no lock to make the roster, but his two seasons of 1,000-plus yards from scrimmage gives him a leg up over McKinnon (injury history) and Williams (ineffective). Jones is a zero in the passing game, so if he does stick with the Chiefs, he will be used in short yard situations or as an injury replacement.
KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Clyde Edwards-Helaire didn't do much last week, rushing nine times for 32 yards and catching 2-of-4 targets for 18 yards. He didn't score a touchdown, but he did convert on a two-point conversion. The touches weren't there, but the good news is CEH played on 71% of the offensive snaps, his highest mark since Week 1 and 20% more than he's played in a game since returning from injury. He has a chance to be much more productive this week as things are trending in his direction. CEH faces a favorable Steelers defense that's given up the eighth-most average fantasy points to running backs. And Kansas City may end up relying on the run game more this week if Tyreek Hill (COVID) and Travis Kelce (COVID) are unable to play. CEH should be viewed as a strong RB2 play in Week 16.
