Clyde Edwards-Helaire Got In Extra Work Before Camp

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

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"

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.
