Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is officially active for the AFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire should have a big role in the offense this week and could also see a few targets in the passing game. He should be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is expected to play in the AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Jan. 24.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire had been declared questionable on the injury report after participating in a limited fashion in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week. He is expected to receive at least half of the Chiefs' backfield touches this evening, with most of the remaining carries being handled by Darrel Williams. However, DFS players may want to hedge their bets by investing just as much in Williams as they do Edwards-Helaire.

RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) practiced in a limited fashion again Friday, Jan. 22, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire was reportedly "close" to getting the nod last week versus the Cleveland Browns, but it is slightly discouraging that he wasn't able to practice in full this week. As long as CEH doesn't appear on the inactive list for some reason Sunday evening, he should be expected to handle at least half of the backfield touches and quite possibly more. DFS players may want to hedge their bets by investing just as much in Darrel Wiliams as they do the rookie.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is participating in practice Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: CEH was limited Wednesday, and we will soon find out if he was able to up his level of participation a day later. Certainly something to keep an eye on in any case as the rookie rumbled for a season-best 161 rushing yards in the Chiefs' 26-17 Week 6 win over the Bills.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire has missed the last several weeks because of the injury but appears to have a chance to play against the Buffalo Bills. He probably will see most of the work if he is active and can be a starting fantasy option.

Kanas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) has been declared inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams should both receive a decent amount of snaps against the Cleveland Browns and can be flex options in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) will not play in the Divisional Round playoff game, according to a source. He likely will be ready for the AFC Championship game if the team advances in the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams probably will share playing time with Edwards-Helaire sidelined. Both should see a decent amount of touches during the game and can be at least flex options.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is reportedly facing an uphill battle to play in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, Jan. 17, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire was listed as questionable on the injury report after logging just one limited practice session during the week. However, he was held out of practice Thursday, Jan. 14, and Friday, Jan. 15, so he is definitely trending in the wrong direction. Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams will split carries in the Kansas City backfield if Edwards-Helaire is unable to suit up versus the Browns.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (hip, ankle) did not practice for a second consecutive day Friday, Jan. 15. However, head coach Andy Reid told reporters afterward that Edwards-Helaire looked 'fine' in his limited practice two days earlier and that he wanted to give his running back as much time and rest as possible ahead of the team's AFC Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Although the Athletic's Nate Taylor believes Edwards-Helaire will end up being a "true game-time decision," his report - along with his questionable status on the team's injury report - suggests he has a decent shot at leading the Kansas City backfield Sunday. While some fantasy owners were disappointed with his regular-season production, he offers significantly more to the offense than Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams do. Fantasy owners need to have a backup plan, but it sounds as if the rookie will play.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire was limited to begin the week coming off the team's bye, so it's still too early to tell if this is a case of the team being cautious or the player suffering a setback. If he is limited or full on Friday, the rookie should be considered a strong option in what should be a high-scoring game against the Cleveland Browns. If he logs another DNP to close out the practice week, Darrel Williams and Le'Veon Bell will likely share touches, making both players little more than DFS punts.
