2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
After missing two entire seasons due to injury, McKinnon has played in all but four games over the past three years combined. His usage remained low in 2021 when he logged a combined 25 touches, but last season it jumped to 128: that broke down to 72 carries for 291 yards, and 56 receptions for 512 yards. While the 803 total yards were nice, it was the 10 touchdowns that was a real eye opener with nine of them coming as a receiver -- that was good enough to tie for sixth in the NFL, and it was nearly double the next-highest running back (Aaron Jones, Christian McCaffrey, and Austin Ekeler each had five).

At 31, McKinnon is long in the tooth for the position, but Reid values his veteran savvy, and Mahomes clearly trusts him as a valuable piece of the passing game. Expect McKinnon to reprise his role as the primary receiving back, which should afford him fringe top-50 value. If he was your No. 5 back, you'd have assembled good depth for your squad.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Isiah Pacheco clears concussion protocol, expected to play
Clyde Edwards-Helaire listed as Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 30, 4:24 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
#Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and is expected to play, source said. He was listed as questionable with a concussion and also a shoulder injury. Jerick McKinnon has been placed on IR. (Ian Rapoport on X)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs were looking at starting Clyde Edwards-Helaire on Sunday against the Bengals but it will now be Pacheco who is a solid RB2 against a middling Cincinnati defense against the run.


Isiah Pacheco should be good to go for Week 16
Shoulder injury/surgery caused RB to miss last two games
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 18, 6:40 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Andy Reid on RB Isiah Pacheco (shoulder): "He'll be back this week. He'll be good to go this week, unless there's further setbacks. But right now, everything's positive for him to go." (Arrowhead Pride - Pete Sweeney)

FFToday's Take: Pacheco is the overall RB17 entering Monday Night Football despite missing Weeks 14 and 15. The second-year back was starting to catch fire for his fantasy managers before the injury, topping 20 fantasy points in each of his last two games before the injury. It will be interesting to see if Kansas City opts to go right back to giving him 20 touches or HC Andy Reid tries to mix in Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon a bit more. Either way, he should remain a solid RB2 option.


Injury Isiah Pacheco to miss second straight game
Could practice next week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 15, 1:58 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have ruled out Isiah Pacheco for Sunday's game at New England. They will play without their RB1 for the second straight week. Andy Reid said Pacheco had surgery on his shoulder and could be back at practice next week. (Adam Teicher on X)

FFToday's Take: We saw the Chiefs use Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon last week with Pacheco out, and that's likely what we'll see again. CEH had 15 opportunities while McKinnon had 7. McKinnon's use in the passing game and around the goaline will keep both in the Flex conversation this week against the Patriots.


Injury Chiefs rule out Isiah Pacheco for Week 14
Clyde Edwards-Helaire next man up
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 8, 2:01 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
The #Chiefs are ruling out RB Isiah Pacheco, LB Drue Tranquill, DB Bryan Cook, and OT Donovan Smith for their game against the #Bills. (Ian Rapoport on X)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs are going to be short-handed this week against Buffalo. Expect Clyde Edwards-Helaire to get the bulk of the early-down work with Jerick McKinnon handling most of the third downs. CEH will have some Flex appeal in this role, while McKinnon has some mild upside in PPR leagues.
