2. Clyde Edwards-Helaire

It's downright impressive how much Edwards-Helaire can stall the offense in limited action. He played only seven snaps, but ask any Chiefs fan and they'll tell you it was seven snaps too many.

Edwards-Helaire had five yards on two carries and failed to corral his only target, though he still managed to stall drives and draw the ire of Chiefs Kingdom.

I hope we'll see Clyde phased out entirely in favor of Jerick McKinnon as the season progresses. In the meantime, he lacks the burst of Isiah Pacheco and the dependability of McKinnon while providing none of the big-play ability.

He's got 32 carries for 105 yards this season, averaging a pathetic 3.3 yards per attempt. With Pacheco at 4.2 yards per carry and even Mahomes at 6.5, it's more obvious each passing week that Edwards-Helaire is negatively impacting the team.

The defense has been so good that it hasn't mattered, but by the time the playoffs roll around, I'm praying we'll leave Clyde on the sideline.

This final Chief on thin ice plays every snap, though he's the clear weak link of the defense as it stands.
