Player Outlook

The Chiefs selected rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the first round of the NFL Draft, and he's expected to be the starter in Kansas City this year. He has to prove he's better than Damien Williams, which won't be easy, but Edwards-Helaire has the upside to be a top 30 overall selection in all leagues, especially PPR. He also should be the first-overall pick in rookie-only drafts for Dynasty leagues. Edwards-Helaire was a star at LSU in 2019, and the Chiefs made him the first running back off the board. Playing for Andy Reid and with Patrick Mahomes gives Edwards-Helaire the chance to be dominant from Day 1 in the NFL.

Player News
  • Chiefs GM Brett Veach expects Damien Williams to "come in as the starting running back," while Edwards-Helaire will compete for playing time to form a one-two punch in the backfield, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reports. Williams figures to take the first snap with the starting offense whenever the Chiefs are able to practice, but that doesn't necessarily mean the rookie won't have a shot at the lead role early on. Veach referred to Edwards-Helaire as a "franchise running back, true playmaker, someone special and unique," and the Chiefs presumably expect some form of immediate return on their first-round draft pick. The competition for snaps and touches between Edwards-Helaire and Williams will be one of the key storylines to monitor for fantasy football in 2020.

  • The Chiefs selected Edwards-Helaire in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 32nd overall. Edwards-Helaire is somewhat surprisingly the first running back off the board, but he's clearly a fine selection for the Chiefs even given his prior underdog status. At 5-foot-7, 207 pounds, Edwards-Helaire is densely built despite a frame that looks small at a glance, and his movements are both rapid and precise. Polished as a pass catcher out of the backfield, Edwards-Helaire resembles former Andy Reid star Brian Westbrook in terms of build, athleticism and skill set. Damien Williams was utterly dominant for the Chiefs the last two seasons when healthy, so while CEH is the runner of the future for the Chiefs, Williams could mostly hold him off for another year with better durability luck.
