Struggles on SNF

Edwards-Helaire rushed 13 times for 46 yards while losing a fumble in Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Ravens.

The Chiefs only dialed up 16 designed running plays for its backs (despite leading for the majority of the contest) after running 15 of those same plays in Week 1. It appears that offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy wants to keep the ball in his best player's hands, Patrick Mahomes, as much as possible this season, which seems like a smart move. It doesn't help that Edwards-Helaire isn't doing much with the limited touches he has been receiving (3.3 yards per carry). If this trend continues, then CEH's ceiling may be lower than many expected for 2021. Up next for the Chiefs is a divisional matchup against the Chargers next Sunday.
