I had Edwards-Helaire as my top running back in this year's class due to the way he fits the NFL today. He's a true three-down back who can catch 80-plus passes out of the backfield, while running for 1,000-plus yards. Landing with the Chiefs was a dream scenario, especially in the first round. Over the last seven years, running backs who've been drafted in the first round have averaged 280.7 touches in year one. 75 percent of them have finished as an RB2 or better. Don't think this is Darwin Thompson all over again, as he was a sixth-round pick last year, and those average just 29.8 touches in year one. This is Edwards-Helaire's backfield after Andy Reid said he's better than Brian Westbrook on film. You don't take those players off the field very often. He's worth a second-round pick and would be a steal in the third round.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire signs rookie contract with the Chiefs

First round pick RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire is signing his four-year rookie contract with the Chiefs.

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.
