Clyde Edwards-Helaire still involved

Isiah Pacheco took the first-team reps in practice this week and is expected to be the starter at running back in Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers, sources say. Pacheco will replace former first-rounder Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who will still have a key role on offense. Kansas City often rotates backs, and both are expected to see significant snaps.

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Chiefs have been using all three of their running backs this season making it difficult for fantasy owners to get a feel for who to start. Pacheco is arguably their best player at the position and now that he has the trust of Andy Reid in pass protection, could finally have some real fantasy value. His ceiling will be capped until he develops enough trust to see a 60% snap share.
