This KANSAS CITY CHIEFS RUNNING BACK Could WIN YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE This Year – DON’T MISS OUT!
I don’t know about you but I don’t play for second place.
And if you’re playing to take home the gold then you have to take risks after you’ve filled in your first few surefire picks.
I like to spend my picks on people that have a real chance to become real steals if just a few breaks go their way.
One of those guys this year is Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Isaih Pacheco.
The latest update on the Rutgers product reads… 8/8: Chiefs seventh-round RB Isiah Pacheco is running routes from the slot in training camp.
But, that’s not it. If you’ve been monitoring this backfield through camp you know there has been a waterfall of good things said about Pacheco for a few weeks now.
He’s been praised for his professional work ethic, his attention to detail, his pass protection, his elite pass catching skills, and his strong running.
He’s even being compared to another Kansas City running back of recent history and fantasy lore — Kareem Hunt.
He’s FAST. Pacheco logged a 4.37 40 yard dash… the fastest at this year’s combine amongst the running back group.
To put that in perspective, Jonathan Taylor of the Indianapolis Colts ran his 40 in 4.39.
He’s GOT SIZE. Pacheco isn’t the typical smaller back that might clock a speed like that — he measured in at just over 5’10” and 222 lbs.
Jonathan Taylor measured in at the exact same height but 4 lbs heavier, at 226 lbs.
He’s STRONG (LIKE BULL). Pacheco pushed 225 lbs on the bench 27 times.
That’s 10 more reps than Taylor’s 17, and 5 more reps than Derrick Henry’s 22.
He’s GOT A PATH. Those who don’t follow too closely probably think the running back position in KC firmly belongs to former 1st round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire. But, he hasn’t developed into the full player they would have hoped and he’s struggled to stay healthy so far. A quality player — but is beginning to feel more like a Darren Sproles or a Boston Scott more so than a Jonathan Taylor.
They may also be looking at Ronald Jones and thinking he could be the player to steal the top spot. But, he’s had his struggles and they are not financially trapped into pushing him into the lead role, nor are they guaranteed to even keep him on the roster after final cuts.
Coach Andy Reid has shown in the past he’s not afraid to go with the lesser known, lesser hyped player.
He’s GOING FOR NOTHING. FantasyPros has Pacheco being drafted as the 70th+ RB off the board. It’s quite possible this will change drastically as we progress through the preseason and more people start hearing his name and seeing his game.
Whatever the cost, if Pacheco ascends to the top RB spot in KC, he will perform as a top 10 RB — no questions asked. After you’ve picked your top running back(s) consider taking a swing on Pacheco — he might just win you your league in 2022.
