The Chiefs still don't seem comfortable using Clyde Edwards-Helaire in most third-down situations, and until they do, the backfield is going to be more of a committee thing. But don't ignore that Edwards-Helaire has three touchdowns in three games.
The Chiefs seeming don't trust CEH in certain situations, and that was also clear last season in the playoffs when McKinnon stood out. McKinnon could very well still be on your waiver wire and is worth a pickup and a stash on your bench. CEH does seem to get the goal line carries, but the story said you can't count on him to keep up his current TD pace.
KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 4 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Clyde Edwards-Helaire had a bizarre game last week as he ran seven times for no yards. Thankfully for fantasy owners he managed to find the end zone, and in PPR formats he turned in a 5-39 performance on five targets. CEH has been RB4 in half-PPR formats through three games, although his usage doesn't necessarily scream top five running back. CEH has played below 50% of the offensive snaps in every game, and he's only averaging 11.3 touches. It feels like he's eventually going to crash, and it could be this week in a brutal matchup vs. the Bucs. Tampa Bay has allowed the fewest average fantasy points to running backs this season, mostly because they haven't given up a single touchdown to the position. Which is bad news for CEH considering a lot of his fantasy value has been tied to him finding the end zone. It's a tough matchup, but CEH has been pretty productive so far. He should still be viewed as a low-end RB2 heading into Week 4.
