The Chiefs plan of attack looks to remain the same at RB as it really had been over the last couple of weeks - Pacheco as the RB1 with McKinnon getting some carries and playing in some passing situations. However, after being inactive all season, we may get a Jones sighting in Week 12.
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.
McKinnon is listed as the team's RB2 with the rookie Pacheco getting the RB3 nod. Pacheco will also return kickoffs. CEH is the team's RB1, which isn't a surprise. However in the playoffs last year the team seemed to go away from him at times, giving McKinnon more of a workload.
Jones played his way onto the roster with a strong Week 3 of preseason, the tweet went on to say. He ran 8 times for 43 yards and caught a four-yard pass. He's at least behind CEH and McKinnon on the depth chart, and he could even fall behind seventh-round rookie Pacheco.
