Chiefs Want Clyde Edwards-Helaire To Improve At Goal Line

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.

Sammy Watkins Has A Lot To Live Up To

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins continued his streak of having a dominant Week 1 against the Houston Texans in his opening game, but he's unlikely to match that production in Week 2. Watkins put together a strong line of seven catches, 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, but he will face off against the Chargers, who dominated the receiver in 2019. In a pair of matchups against the Chargers, Watkins caught just three passes for 34 yards. Although the Chiefs have a new weapon that could break out at any time, Watkins doesnt seem like the safest bet. With plenty of mouths to feed in KC, including Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, Watkins will also compete with wide receivers Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman for targets. He is best suited as a boom/bust flex player in deeper leagues.

Travis Kelce Has Struggled Versus Chargers In His Career

Despite being arguably the best tight end option in the league, Kansas City Chiefs tight endTravis Kelce has generally struggled versus the Chargers. Kelce will go up against the Chargers on Sunday, but he has never eclipsed the 100-yard mark and only owns one touchdown in his 12 career games against the division rivals. Kelce hauled in all six targets in Week 1 and chipped in a touchdown to go along with 50 yards. The Chargers have held the tight end standout to just 41 yards per game throughout his career, and owners in DFS should take notice, as this may not be the best week to start the All-Pro. Managers in weekly leagues should still roll out one of the game's best at his position, but shouldnt expect the huge numbers he is capable of in Week 2.

Tyreek Hill Draws Tough Matchup Versus Chargers

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will look for better results against the Chargers in Week, 2 as they are a team that has generally shut the star receiver down. Hill does own five touchdowns against the Chargers, but he has only had one game with over 100 yards in eight career matchups. With the Chiefs having explosive options all over the field, Week 2 may be a good time for DFS players to avoid Hill. Even with the tough matchup, managers in weekly leagues should still start Hill, as he has too much potential to sit on the bench. Hill is coming off of a quiet opener with just five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown, but Week 2 may not be his best chance at putting up WR1 numbers.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Seeks To Improve In Short Yardage

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.
