What to do with Clyde Edwards-Helaire in Week 5 fantasy football

We go over Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Chiefs Week 5 matchup against the Raiders.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs host their division rivals, the Las Vegas Raiders, on Sunday in what should be a high-scoring affair. That’s good news for fantasy owners banking on a big day from running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

CEH turned in a pretty pedestrian performance in last week’s outing against the Patriots. He carried the ball 16 times for 64 yards, and caught three passes for 27 more yards. It was the second game this season he had less than 20 touches.

But don’t let one down performance fool you; Edwards-Helaire is going to get his work in with this offense, and the stats will follow. This week is an especially good matchup. No team in the NFL gives up more fantasy points to running backs than the Raiders. And while he’s not exactly a value pick at $6,800 in DraftKings leagues this week, the matchup makes it worth the price.
