Isiah Pacheco Suffers Concussion on Christmas Day vs Raiders

The injury, while it shouldn’t be a long term one, definitely opens up some serious opportunity for Clyde Edwards-Helaire to make some serious noise in the fantasy championship in Week 17. Pacheco will be starting the week behind the eight ball with the Chiefs slated to play their next game on Sunday - six days after Pacheco originally sustained the concussion. With RB Jerick McKinnon on IR and Pacheco’s status for a Week 17 tilt against the Bengals suddenly in question, CEH could step into the lead role in the Kansas City backfield for fantasy managers who held onto him as a handcuff for Pacheco in the games he missed just a short few weeks ago. If Pacheco does, indeed, miss Week 17, his fantasy season will effectively be over with most league championships wrapping up before the last game of the NFL regular season. Fantasy managers should keep tabs on the situation in the Chiefs’ backfield moving forward.
