Clyde Edwards-Helaire News
Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire put together another underwhelming performance in a Week 2 loss versus the Baltimore Ravens. The sophomore running back rushed the ball 13 times for 46 yards and came up with a costly fumble near the end of the fourth quarter that ended any chance of a Chiefs comeback and secured a Ravens victory. With the Chiefs operating a pass heavy offense, CEH has to make the most of his opportunities to provide value to managers and he has struggled to do that thus far with just 89 yards on 27 carries this season. As part of an explosive offense, Edwards-Helaire is still valuable, but managers shouldn't expect much consistency out of him at the moment with Patrick Mahomes and the passing game being the prime focus of the offense. Edwards-Helaire will look for better results and his first touchdown in Week 3 versus the division rival Los Angeles Chargers.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to improve off his 43 rushing yards in Week 1 with a Week 2 matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens.

The sophomore running back will face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 and despite the Ravens defense getting torched in the pass game, they held the Raiders running backs to just 45 yards on 16 attempts.

In Week 2, Edwards-Helaire should be treated as a RB2, but he will need to start picking up more receptions or rushing yards to maintain that status throughout the year.

CEH got his fair share of touches in this contest, but he was unable to find the end zone. With the Chiefs operating heavily in the pass game and competing with wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce for touches, Edwards-Helaire will need to score to maintain most of value. Even without a touchdown, CEH remains a solid RB2 option with the Chiefs having one of the best offenses in the game. The good news is that he was the main man out of the backfield and Darrel Williams only saw one touch on the afternoon. Next up for Edwards-Helaire will be a date with the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.
