Clyde Edwards-Helaire Goes Crazy In Week 6

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire put together his most dominant performance of the season on Monday versus the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs fed their rookie all night long and CEH responded by rushing for 161 yards on 26 carries. The rookie had his longest run of the season for 31 yards and also chipped in with four catches for eight yards. The rookie has looked strong all season and has become a big threat in the Chiefs powerful offense, but the Chiefs recent signing of LeVeon Bell is expected to put a dent in his workload. Even with Bell in the picture, Edwards-Helaire should be considered a high-end RB2 the rest of the year. The rookie will look to keep the momentum going against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Will Look To Bounce Back In Week 6

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to bounce back against the Bills in Week 6. The rookie struggled against the Raiders in 2 Week 5, but some of that can be attributed to the fact that the Chiefs were trailing and had to pass the ball for most of the second half. The Bills are giving up 85 yards per game on the ground and have only allowed Rams running back Darrell Henderson to rush for over 100 yards this season. Edwards-Helaire has been featured in the pass game, but the Bills Defense is only allowed two receptions a game to opposing runners. The rookie might not do much as a receiver on Monday, but he should be able to find some holes and once again be the bell cow for Kansas City. With the Chiefs expected to sign LeVeon Bell, the rookie should be considered a RB2 with upside the rest of the way.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Held In Check

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire had a frustrating afternoon against the Las Vegas Raiders in a Week 5 loss. CEH was held to just 40 rushing yards on 10 carries and also hauled in three receptions for 40 yards. The Raiders defense was very good in the second half and it showed as it was the rookies worst performance of his young career. The Chiefs had to pass more than usual and that worked against Edwards-Helaire. The rookie has shown he has a big role in the Chiefs offense and should be considered a RB1 heading into Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Set Up For Big Week

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is set up for a big Week 5 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The rookie has become a bell cow out of the Chiefs backfield and has helped in both the run and pass game. This sets him up nicely against the Raiders defense which has allowed 138.5 yards per game on the ground and 7.5 receptions a game to opposing running backs. The Raiders defense has also given up 30 points per game on the season and that sets up CEH a nice opportunity to reach the end zone. CEH has reached RB1 status in his short career and managers have to be excited about what they have seen so far from the rookie. In addition to weekly leagues, Edwards-Helaire makes for a strong DFS play in Week 5 and those playing may want to consider stacking him along with some of his teammates in what should be a high scoring affair on Sunday.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Continues To Be A Big Part Of Offense

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed 16 times for 64 yards and picked up 27 yards on three catches in Week 4 versus the New England Patriots. CEH has shown explosiveness out of the backfield for the defending champs and has also chipped in as part of the passing game. Edwards-Helaire has been seeing the majority of snaps out of the backfield and has been helping managers across the board with his ability to both run and catch the ball. CEH will be an RB1 heading into a Week 5 date with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Is A Strong Play In Week 4

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is set up for a big performance against the New England Patriots in Week 4. CEH has been performing as a RB1 and has picked up 11 receptions over the past two weeks. The rookie has always been getting the bulk of snaps out of the backfield. The Patriots have allowed 100 yards or more on the ground in back-to-back weeks and they have also allowed 18 receptions to the running back position on the season. CEH is lined up to have a strong performance and should be considered by managers playing DFS on Sunday.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Continues To Impress

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire once again played a significant role in the Chiefs offense on Monday versus the Baltimore Ravens. CEH rushed 20 times for 64 yards also caught five of six passes for 70 yards. The rookie has been involved in the passing game for two straight weeks and is clearly the bell cow in the Chiefs backfield. Edwards has been doing it all for the Chiefs and its fair to say it is his job to lose. Edwards-Helaire should be treated as a RB1 and will look to keep it going against the New England Patriots in Week 4.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Looks To Bounce Back In Week 3

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to bounce back in Week 3 after a rough Week 2 running the ball. CEH did catch six passes on eight targets in last Sundays contest and managers should be pleased that hes getting involved in the pass game. The Ravens defensive unit has been strong this year, but allowed over 100 yards to the Browns backfield of Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb in Week 1, before shutting down David Johnson for just 34 yards. CEH is shaping up to be the newest tool in the shed in an already explosive offense and should be considered a RB1 in Week 3.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Returns To Reality In Week 2

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire had an explosive Week 1 in his NFL debut last week, but returned to earth in Week 2 against the Chargers. The rookie was the lead back out of the backfield, but only saw 10 rushes for 38 yards at 3.8 yards per carry. The positive news for Edwards-Helaire was that he was featured in the pass game and caught six balls for 32 yards. Edwards-Helaire already has strong value and if he is able to carve out a consistent role as a pass catcher, he could become a top-5 running back. Edwards-Helaire will look for more opportunities in a tough matchup versus the stingy Baltimore Ravens Defense in Week 3. He should be treated as a low-end RB1 for now.

Chiefs Want Clyde Edwards-Helaire To Improve At Goal Line

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran for 138 yards in his first NFL game and leads the league in that department after just one week, but the young back needs to improve near the goal line. He gained minus-two yards on six carries in goal-to-go situations against the Texans. Running backs coach Deland McCullough suggested that the rookie would remain the team's goal-line back in Week 2 against the Chargers. "Although it was a good performance, he knows he left some things out there on the field that could have helped us to be better," offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. Fantasy managers shouldn't worry, as CEH should continue to see a big workload. He's a must-start each and every week in this explosive Chiefs offense.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Seeks To Improve In Short Yardage

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to build off a dominant debut in Week 1. Edwards-Helaire received 66.7% of the snaps given to the run game in Week 1. Darrel Williams is likely to operate as the third down back for now, but it appears to be the rookies job to lose. If there was one thing that Edwards-Helaire struggled with in his debut, it was short yardage gains as he was stuffed a whopping six times at the goal line. Offensive Coordinator Eric Bieniemy said that the rookie has got to do a better job in that situation and that the rookie knows he left some things on the field that could have helped the Chiefs. Managers should feel confident firing up the Chiefs first-round with a date against the Chargers Sunday afternoon.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Shines In NFL Debut

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire had a magnificent debut on Thursday night against the Houston Texans. The rookie running back had 25 rushes and put up 138 yards including a 19-yard touchdown. The rookie running back also was targeted twice in the passing game, but did not make a catch. Edwards-Helaire lived up to all the hype and he didnt struggle much all other than getting stuffed six times at the goalline. The Chiefs offensive line looked great on Thursday and managers should be excited about Edwards-Helaire and what he can do in the Chiefs explosive offense. Backup running back Darrel Williams got most of the action on third downs and had 11 rushes and a pair of catches. Managers should worry about Williams as it seemed to be clear that its the rookies backfield for now. The rookie will look to keep things going against the Chargers next Sunday.

Is Clyde Edwards-Helaire Worth The Hype?

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was practicing against an LSU defense loaded with future NFL players in his freshman season in 2017, and the star running back ran for 1,916 yards and 24 total touchdowns in his final two seasons before being a first-round pick in 2020. Expectations are high for CEH in his rookie season in a potent offense run by head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but Edwards-Helaire looked like a good fit as the team's featured back in training camp. The 21-year-old was expected to have a big role, but it got even bigger when Damien Williams opted out of the season. The Chiefs are very confident and impressed with their rookie back, but they may ease him in since he didn't get any preseason games under his belt. It means he might be a tad volatile early in the season, but Edwards-Helaire is still, at worst, a low-end RB1 for the Thursday night opener against the Texans.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Improving In Pass Protection Skills

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has developed a strong understanding of how to protect the quarterback as well as the importance of it, according to Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy in a report from Chiefs Wire. The 21-year-old is expected to take on a workhorse role as just a rookie because the other primary Chiefs RB, Damien Williams, has opted out of the 2020 season. While Edwards-Helaire has a large frame (5'7", 210 lbs) and can run the ball with strength and power, it's always great for players to continue expanding their skillset. The rookie will work alongside QB Patrick Mahomes and try to protect his Super-Bowl winning gunslinger effectively during the season. Edwards-Helaire can be considered a top-10 fantasy RB based on his expected role in a high-powered offense.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Helping His Cause

General

Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is helping his cause for a prominent role in his rookie season by impressing early in training camp. "They're very excited about what that they've seen from him so far. Coming in they knew he was a smart kid, he's shown that. He's picking up the playbook pretty fast, they know he's a guy that can make plays out of the backfield and as a receiver," NFL Network's Jeffri Chadiha said. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been impressed with CEH's vision on the field. With Damien Williams opting out due to COVID-19, Edwards-Helaire will likely be a first-round fantasy pick in just his first season in KC's dynamic offense.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Got In Extra Work Before Camp

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire reported to training camp on Saturday along with quarterback Patrick Mahomes to begin official on-field training activities. However, the duo is already familiar with each other, as they both worked out together during the offseason. The rookie has plenty of hype entering the season, and despite not having played a single snap on the professional level, he is still slated to get drafted somewhere early in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign. The 21-year-old had a successful tenure while at LSU but will initially battle for snaps with Damien Williams, making the former Tiger a risky selection at his current ADP, especially for fantasy managers who are lacking depth at the position.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Projected To Be Best Rookie RB

General

NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund projects Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the 32nd overall pick in the draft, to be the most productive rookie running back in 2020. He had an SEC-best 782 yards after contact last year, per Pro Football Focus. The former LSU star was able to break tackles in the running game (SEC-high 71 broken tackles) and in the passing game (14). Head coach Andy Reid's game plan should involve plenty of touches for both Damien Williams and Edwards-Helaire, who has a lot of upside as a receiver. His versatility and the great fit in Kansas City make Edwards-Helaire an immediate RB2 in fantasy football. Frelund rates the rookie as the No. 16 overall running back in PPR leagues.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire "Wants To Be Great"

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has plenty of buzz surrounding him entering the 2020 season. After a successful college career, the first-round pick has been highly touted by many members of the team's coaching staff. In a recent interview, running backs coach Deland McCullough had plenty to say about the 21-year-old, praising his maturity and knowledge while also commenting on how the former LSU Tiger "wants to be great," when remarking about his career aspirations. Though he currently sits behind Damien Williams on the official depth chart, the rookie has a chance to make some noise on the fantasy end right off the bat as a result of the Chiefs' use of the committee approach out of the backfield. He may also find himself getting a more significant workload if Williams, who has had issues remaining healthy throughout the years, finds himself on the shelf at some point during the year.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Has "Some Special Traits"

General

Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire recently received some more praise, with his latest adoration coming from offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. "I think the kid's got some special traits," remarked Bieniemy before adding, "our players are going to help him to grow to become even more of a special contributor when it's all said and done with." The former LSU star will likely start the season mixing in with Damien Williams, with the rookie expected to see a gradual increase in snaps as the 2020 campaign progresses. While the 21-year-old could make an immediate impact, it is more likely he becomes a top fantasy producer toward the middle-to-end of the season.
