Fantasy Impact:

Edwards-Helaire signed his four-year rookie deal on Monday and should report to camp on time. The Chiefs view CEH as a "franchise back" and he will compete for touches with veteran RB Damien Williams. Edwards-Helaire has "some special traits," said Chiefs' OC Eric Bieniemy. "We know one thing that that kid is going to do: He is going to come in and work his tail off. Now, he’s just going to be a piece of the puzzle." The battle to lead the Chiefs' backfield in snaps will be one of the key story lines to monitor in fantasy football. The 2020 first round pick has the potential to be a top-10 fantasy RB and is currently 14th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
