Scouting report

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.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Los Angeles Chargers

Clyde Edwards-Helaire did a lot with very little last week. The Chiefs running back ran 10 times for 37 yards while catching three passes for five yards. But he managed to score twice on the ground, giving fantasy owners a solid performance. CEH only played on 35% of the offensive snaps (his lowest in a non-injury game this season) as the Chiefs played in a blowout. We'd expect CEH to get more snaps this week in what should be a good game against the Chargers. CEH played really well against the Chargers earlier in the year (Week 3), rushing 17 times for 100 yards while finishing 2-9-1 as a receiver. CEH should finish around 15 touches, which in a favorable matchup would make him a strong RB2 play in Week 15.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Clyde Edwards-Helaire has entered a pretty even timeshare with Darrel Williams, but he's still getting enough looks to be productive. CEH finished with 17 touches last week (14 carries, 3 receptions) for 82 scrimmage yards. CEH played just three more snaps than Williams in Week 13, but had nine more touches. So while Williams is taking playing time away, CEH is still the main back to start in this Chiefs backfield. CEH should be in line for a good game this week as he draws a favorable matchup vs. the Raiders. Las Vegas has given up the third-most average fantasy points to opposing running backs. He'll be a strong RB2 play in Week 14.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Denver Broncos

Clyde Edwards-Helaire returned to the Chiefs lineup ahead of their bye week and split duties with Darrel Williams. CEH looked good, running 12 times for 63 yards (5.2 ypc) with a touchdown while catching two passes for an additional 13 yards. CEH played on 47% of the offensive snaps while Williams played on 53%, but CEH saw more touches (14) than Williams (4). It's not clear if K.C. will have Williams play that much moving forward, or if the Chiefs just wanted to ease CEH back into things in his first game back from injury. Either way, he still has a solid role in this offense, and he gets a decent matchup this week vs. the Broncos. We like CEH as a solid RB2 play vs. Denver.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been activated this week, ahead of the Chiefs' bye in Week 12. CEH has been out since injuring his knee in Week 5, and Darrel Williams has excelled in his absence. But CEH is talented as well, so the two Chiefs' backs will be splitting touches. Williams has excelled as a receiver, so we'd expect him to see more targets out of the backfield. We project Williams to see more touches overall this week as CEH eases back into things fresh off of IR. CEH should be viewed as an RB3 or flex play in Week 11 against a tough Cowboys defense.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Buffalo Bills

For the second week in a row, Clyde Edwards-Helaire hit 100 yards on the ground and scored a touchdown through the air. It's interesting that both of CEH's touchdowns this year have come through the air as the Chiefs don't really involve him in the pass game. CEH has just seven total receptions through four games. While CEH's bump in production lately has been nice, we'd be surprised if it continued in Week 5. CEH draws a tough matchup against the Bills who have allowed the fourth-fewest rushing yards to running backs so far this season, while also not giving up a rushing score to the position. He's still an OK play as a low-end RB2 in Week 5 as he should continue to see plenty of touches.

KC RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Philadelphia Eagles

Clyde Edwards-Helaire had just his third career game where he hit 100 yards on the ground last week. He did so on 17 carries, which is the third-most he's had in a game in his career. CEH also found the endzone on a short pass, his first touchdown in five regular-season games. We aren't expecting another 100-yard game from CEH, but he's still a good play in Week 4. He draws a favorable matchup against the Eagles, who have allowed the fourth-most rushing yards to RBs so far this season. CEH should be a solid RB2 play this week.
