The Kansas City Chiefs are working to dig out of the hole they’ve gotten themselves into early in the 2021-22 season. At 3-4, they will look to get it started against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Jerick McKinnon has a meager four carries for 12 yards on the ground, and six catches for 49 yards through the air.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon

In the two games without Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the backfield, McKinnon has still failed to put up relevant fantasy numbers as the change-of-pace ball carrier behind Darrel Williams.

With CEH likely returning in a week, there won’t be much room to operate in the Chiefs’ pass-heavy offense.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Bench McKinnon.
