According to Nate Taylor of The Athletic, RB Isiah Pacheco has received praise from Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who noted his abilities as a pass-catcher and hard-nosed runner. He has been seeing work in the passing game, particularly in the slot, as well. (Nate Taylor, The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

According to Pete Sweeney of Arrowhead Pride, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire has consistently seen the first-team work, while the other running backs have mixed in behind him. James Palmer of NFL Network has also said Pacheco has been getting some time in with the 1s recently, though, and the rookie out of Rutgers has been turning heads as he continues to get more buzz each day. With Pacheco earning passing work in the slot on top of him earning more touches on the ground over time, the Chiefs are potentially working him toward being an important piece of the offense. Pacheco should be on the radar of all dynasty leagues as a late-round pick, and both RBs Ronald Jones and Jerick McKinnon's stock could be dropping.
