Off to a hot start, the Kansas City Chiefs look to continue their success against the struggling Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. We’ll break down the fantasy potential of Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and whether or not you should slot him in your lineups.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

After failing to meet the expectations of fantasy managers over the past two seasons, Edwards-Helaire has delivered back-to-back strong outings this season. The former first-round pick has seen double-digit touches each week and reached the end zone twice already. Edwards-Helaire scored just six total touchdowns a year ago and five the season before that.

Sunday’s matchup with the Colts could yield another productive showing for the third-year running back. Indianapolis has given up 240 yards from scrimmage to running backs so far in 2022 and has allowed a touchdown to the position as well. Edwards-Helaire probably won’t see significantly more touches in this matchup as he has in weeks prior, but he should still have enough opportunities to deliver in fantasy.
