Fantasy Impact:

Edwards-Helaire enters his third season with the Kansas City Chiefs, but this offseason was his first healthy one. Edwards-Helaire has missed 10 games over his first two seasons, and for the first time since getting drafted, he faces competition in the RB room. The Chiefs moved on from RB Darrel Williams, the team's leading rusher in 2021, but brought in RB Ronald Jones. Jones and Edwards-Helaire have complementary skillsets, so the two may split snaps, and in an offense that seems doomed to regress without WR Tyreek Hill, that's not an ideal situation for fantasy managers. But Edwards-Helaire was never the strongest red-zone rusher anyway and could see an uptick in pass-game usage. With a healthy offseason, should Edwards-Helaire emerge as the team's lead back, he could easily surpass his current average draft position of just RB27.
