Clyde Edwards-Heliare gets a running mate

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed running back Le'Veon Bell to a one-year deal, pairing him in the backfield with Clyde Edwards-Heliare.

Dynasty Analysis

The signing of Bell muddies the short-term expectations for CEH, who has been solid, but not spectacular so far in his rookie season. Through his first five games, Edwards-Helaire has 344 rushing yards (4.2 yards per carry), 17 catches and 169 receiving yards. He's also struggled in the red zone, scoring just one touchdown thus far. Savvy dynasty owners should recognize the signing of Bell is not an indictment on CEH, it's just an opportunity to possibly get one of the more explosive players in the league back on track. Besides, if Bell does indeed re-emerge as a viable fantasy back while in a perceived timeshare with CEH, he'll certainly look to sign a long-term deal elsewhere after the season. If anything, this could represent a decent buy-low opportunity for CEH if you're in a league with owners who panic too much over this move. Edwards-Heliare currently has an ADP of #5 overall is destined to move down some, but it will also do so with the chance for a quick rebound.
