7. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City Chiefs

Fool me once, shame on you, but we’re ready to get fooled again by Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Yes, he fumbled again, but he looked as good as he has all season. The Kansas City Chiefs are too predictable right now, Tyreek Hill isn’t getting open like he did last season, and Travis Kelce can’t do it by himself amongst the pass catchers. The Chiefs need the running game to help, even if it’s burned them twice already this season.

Ezekiel Elliott had his best week of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles defensive line. Kansas City seems like they are willing to ignore CEH’s flaws for now and keep giving him chances. This week is the week the Chiefs wake up offensively. Eagles fans are going to want to make plans for apple picking on Sunday because Edwards-Helaire is going to have a big day.

6. Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have a quarterback who is playing on two bad ankles. It’s clear that Carson Wentz has a plan, and it is to stay upright. His handcuff in Nyheim Hines is key to making that happen. He was targeted six times, caught five passes for 54 yards, and was given a red zone rush that turned into a touchdown. It’s clear Hines is still a major part of the offense.

The Miami Dolphins allowed 136 yards per game on the ground. There is plenty of carries to go around for the Colts against a confusing Miami team. However, where Hines is really going to bring his value is as a receiver. Wentz is a little bit closer to healthy this week, but he still wants to stay that way. Hines is going to get multiple looks.
