5.) Isiah Pacheco

The Kansas City Chiefs played the Denver Broncos two weeks in Kansas City on Thursday night football, in which the Chiefs’ offense did not look like their usual selves. While Kansas City ended up winning 19-8, it was not a convincing win.

However, running back Isiah Pacheco was heavily involved in that game with 16 carries for 62 rushing yards. He also added 6 catches for 36 yards. While he was not successful in finding the endzone, it was the second most number of carries he has in a game this season as well as the most receptions in a game this season.

Pacheco has become a key factor in the offense since being drafted to the Chiefs. He is a hard runner who is not afraid of contact, and going up against a Denver defense that has been horrendous all season long puts Pacheco in the conversation for being in a position to have a great week in fantasy.
