4. Clyde Edwards-Helaire - RB
Whew, it's been nice to see the former first-round pick show some juice in spelling Isiah Pacheco over this last month or so. He had 52 rushing yards in the first two playoff games and closed the season particularly strong and I expect he's earned a place in the league with this stretch.
Notably, Edwards-Helaire's biggest contributions over the regular season's final month came in the passing game. He averaged over 14 yards per catch in three straight games and made a sensational leaping TD catch against the Patriots.
That's a guy that belongs in the league. The first four years of Edwards-Helaire's career didn't quite go as planned when he became Brett Veach's first draft pick, but he can hang his head high knowing he was an important part of this team when it mattered.
He ended the year with 223 rushing yards and 188 receiving yards, earning a role as a backup in the NFL.
It wouldn't stun me at this point if he came back to the Chiefs on a one-year, though I'm not expecting it at this point. With just one more guaranteed game left in red, I'm hoping he comes up with at least one more great run or catch.
