3. Clyde Edwards-Helaire - RB

Clyde had his moment in the sun, filling in admirably for an injured Isiah Pacheco with one of the best TD catches of the year in Week 15 against the Patriots.

The much-maligned former first-round draft pick hasn't worked out in Kansas City, but he's proven over the last month that he still has value as a depth piece at running back. His rushing numbers are underwhelming, but Edwards-Helaire is averaging 11.2 yards per catch out of the backfield.

It'd be surprising if the Chiefs brought Edwards-Helaire back, yet it's not the unfathomable idea it once was. All things considered, I expect him to find a new home after this season and am grateful he's gotten the opportunity to prove he belongs.

With Jerick McKinnon on Injured Reserve, Edwards-Helaire will continue to get touches over the next few weeks.

He could play a pivotal role in the playoffs, which would be quite a storybook way for his Chiefs tenure to close. Edwards-Helaire already has one Super Bowl - he just might leave Kansas City with two.
