2020 Fantasy Outlook
If any player could be said to have hit the jackpot in the 2020 NFL Draft, it's Edwards-Helaire. Selected by the Chiefs at the end of the first round, the dynamic running back moves from one championship squad to another after he helped LSU to an undefeated season in 2019. At 5-7, 207, Edwards-Helaire was widely seen as the best receiving back in this year's draft class, but he's far from one-dimensional as his power, low center of gravity, elusiveness and vision make him difficult to bring to the ground. Another back with a similar skill set, Brian Westbrook, thrived under Andy Reid in Philadelphia, and CEH seems likely to see a significant role right away in Kansas City's supercharged offense, given the draft capital used to acquire him. Damien Williams initially remained atop the depth chart, but his decision to opt out of the 2020 season could leave Edwards-Helaire unchallenged for the lead backfield role. The upside scenario probably looks similar to what Kareem Hunt did for the Chiefs in 2017 and 2018. Read Past Outlooks

Edwards-Helaire (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Browns, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
As reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN earlier Sunday, Edwards-Helaire isn't ready to return from the left ankle sprain and left hip strain that he suffered Week 15. With the rookie first-rounder out of the lineup, Le'Veon Bell is in line to head the Chiefs backfield in their playoff opener. Behind Bell, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson are next up for touches at running back.
