Kansas City Chiefs Fantasy Football Projections
Here are our projections for the Kansas City Chiefs running backs for the 2020 NFL season:
|Perhaps a bit of a surprise for some as the first running back off the board, Edwards-Helaire has drawn comparisons to (a better version of) Brian Westbrook (by head coach Andy Reid) and lands in an ideal long-term spot for his fantasy value. With Damien Williams opting out of the 2020 season, it boosts CEH's short-term (i.e., 2020) outlook and catapults him into the (upper?) RB1 range. It wasn't that long ago that fantasy owners saw what a prominently-featured rookie running back (Kareem Hunt, RB3, 2017) could do in an Reid-led offense.|
|While the Chiefs will give Edwards-Helaire all he can handle, throwing a late-round dart at the team's No. 2 back makes sense as a way to get some cheap exposure to the high-powered Chiefs offense. Injuries are a huge part of the game, especially at the running back position, but the COVID-19 pandemic will create even more opportunities for backup running backs than usual and we've seen waiver-wire backs thrive in spot duty in this offense. The only question is who will get that opportunity behind CEH?|
|In a practice where Edwards-Helaire was given the day off, Williams was the "first-team featured back."|
