Assessing Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s fanasty football value | 247Sports

“So a team that’s built on throwing the ball, we’re gonna discuss the running backs,” Cosell said. “It’s a schemed running game that works off what they do with the passing game. My guess is Clyde Edwards-Helaire will do fine. He’s a really good receiver. He’s actually a very, very good runner as well. It’s not a run game that’s built on counting on the back to run the ball 280-300 times. That’s not going to be the plan to begin with so I’d imagine he’ll do fine in the context of that offense. One thing they certainly have going for them, obviously their offensive line has some questions because of the loss of the guard…so there’s some question there, but this is a team built offensively on big plays in the passing game and I think it’ll continue to be that….Maybe he get s 150 or 160 (carries) but I don’t think he’ll be used a ‘foundation back.’ He may get the majority of snaps but I don’t think he’ll be used in the way we think of a feature back.”

[Duvernay-Tardif] Still, the Chiefs keep finding ways to make big moves underneath the salary cap ($6.3 million remaining), and this might be no exception. While free-agent guard Larry Warford opted out, other veteran options with plenty of experience remain out there. Josh Kline, for example, plays on the right side and is not only strong in the running game but also only let up two sacks over 700-plus snaps in 2019, per PFF.

The Kansas City Chiefs Can Now Rest Assured with a Stable Defensive Tackle Situation | AR

Depth is important. The Chiefs have a ton of it at defensive tackle. The return of Jones not only helps Nnadi, but it ensures that supporting pieces like Pennel and Saunders will be fresh and able to give their all in limited snaps. Playing time becomes sparse further down the depth chart, but that’s a testament to the fantastic job General Manager Brett Veach has done. His ability to balance drafting young talent, retaining it, and then cashing in on “lottery ticket” free agent signings is what’s made him so successful as an executive. This is no different. 

Willie Roaf says Patrick Mahomes is ‘definitely the top player‘ | AA

“I think Patrick Mahomes is definitely the top player,” Roaf said. “He should be number one. No disrespect to Lamar Jackson or Russell Wilson but Mahomes is the best. Ask anyone that plays against him.”

KC Chiefs news: Forbes lists franchise at $2.3 billion | AA

he annual list of valuations for sports franchises is out from Forbes Magazine, and the Kansas City Chiefs have ended up at No. 45 overall.

Last year, the Chiefs were ranked at No. 47 overall, so it’s good for Chiefs owner Clark Hunt and his family that they are now worth even more money. However it’s interesting to note that the Chiefs didn’t move up that much in value compared to other NFL teams. In fact, comparing lists brings up some head-scratching facts here on Forbes’ part.

Here is one of the throws Mahomes was talking about. Kelce actually comes open for a TD when the defenders spot Robinson in the flats. The corner never carries with Kelce. #JacobsEyeInTheSky #Chiefs

Man, imagine your first coverage snap in the NFL is on an island against Will Fuller. Sneed makes him work for it, though Fuller ought to have caught this.
