Around the NFL: Isiah Pacheco

I’m an Isiah Pacheco fan. He’s a guy I think I’ll be drafting on most of my teams. But it looks like he might begin training camp on the PUP list.   more »



Kansas City RB Pacheco had offseason surgery

Kansas City head coach Andy Reid confirmed that running back ISIAH PACHECO is on the mend after a pair of offseason surgeries. Pacheco reportedly had an injury to his hand andMore a torn labrum, both of which were repaired during the offseason surgeries. Reid said that Pacheco was “making progress” before adding “We’ll just see how he does with it”. If Pacheco were to suffer any sort of setback, Kansas City also has JERICK MCKINNON and CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE returning to the backfield from last season. Less

Kansas City addresses running back corps

Kansas City raised some eyebrows this week with moves the team made in the running back room. The team re-signed veteran running back JERICK MCKINNON to a one-year contract for theMore upcoming season. Meanwhile, Kansas City declined the fifth-year option on the contract of fellow running back CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE. McKinnon, who turned 31 yesterday, had the best receiving season of his career in 2022, including a streak to end the regular season of six games with at least one touchdown catch. Edwards-Helaire was drafted in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft but has failed to live up to expectations while battling injuries along the way. Less


Factoid: Jerick McKinnon

Running backs are having a hard time landing contracts this offseason. Big names like Ezekiel Elliott and Leonard Fournette are still unemployed. And so is another running back best known for his receiving, former Kansas City back Jerick McKinnon.   more »



KC running back Pacheco looking to build on strong rookie season

While Kansas City rookie running back ISIAH PACHECO had an impressive first season in the NFL, the young rusher acknowledged this week that there is room for improvement heading into theMore upcoming season. Pacheco, a seventh-round pick, will enter 2023 as the starting running back over former first-round running back CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE. He said recently that he’s working to become a more patient runner and a more reliable receiver out of the backfield this season. Take note, fantasy owners. Less



RB Gordon likely headed to free agency

Kansas City let the practice squad contract of veteran running back MELVIN GORDON expire this week, meaning that Gordon is likely headed to free agency. While the team could reach anMore agreement with Gordon, fellow running backs ISIAH PACHECO, CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE, and LA’MICAL PERINE are also on the Kansas City roster. Gordon joined the Kansas City practice squad back in late November after being cut by the Denver Broncos, but he was never elevated to the active roster. Less

Kansas City adjusts injured reserve list, one up and one down

Kansas City activated running back CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE from injured reserve on Monday ahead of the Super Bowl matchup against Philadelphia. Unfortunately for MECOLE HARDMAN fantasy owners, the team added Hardman toMore the injured reserve list in a corresponding move. Edwards-Helaire had been sidelined since suffering a high ankle sprain way back in Week #11. Meanwhile, Hardman aggravated his pelvis injury in the AFC title game and his move to IR means he will not play in the upcoming Super Bowl. Less



Edwards-Helaire not expected to play vs. Jaguars

Kansas City head coach Andy Reid said on Thursday that running back CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE is “probably not” going to be activated to the 53-man roster ahead of Saturday’s playoff game againstMore the Jacksonville Jaguars. Edwards-Helaire did return to practice this week as he works his way back from injury, but he appears to be out for this weekend. Wide receiver and teammate MECOLE HARDMAN was also ruled out against the Jaguars after missing all three days of practice this week. Less

Edwards-Helaire nears return for Kansas City

Kansas City running back CLYDE EDWARDS-HELAIRE was designated to return to practice from injured reserve this week. The 21-day practice window is now open, meaning that Edwards-Helaire can be activated toMore the 53-man roster at any point during that window. While his teammates are excited for his return, fantasy owners of fellow running backs ISIAH PACHECO and JERICK MCKINNON may not share in the excitement. While Pacheco and McKinnon will likely continue to lead the backfield in the playoffs, time will tell if Edwards-Helaire also plays a role. Less
