Clyde Edwards-Helaire was a borderline top-five pick at his position in 2020 Fantasy drafts, but Kansas City's first-round pick did not live up to the lofty expectations set for him in Year 1. The rookie finished with over 1,000 scrimmage yards in only 13 games, so it was hardly a disappointing season. Edwards-Helaire just didn't show the same game-changing ability as a pass-catcher that we saw from him at LSU in 2019. CEH's average draft position is considerably lower in Fantasy in 2021; is it possible that he is a post-hype value pick in his second season?
Edwards-Helaire is a clear top-20 pick at the RB position for Dynasty startup draft purposes, but just how high should he be ranked at the position in season-long leagues while questions remain about his lack of passing down invovlement in Kansas City's offense?
