2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
At this time last year, Pacheco was an afterthought, an unheralded seventh-round pick seemingly buried on the depth chart. The then-rookie ran hard every time he was given the chance, however, and he eventually took over as the primary back on early downs. Despite entering the month of November with just 39 carries, Pacheco would end up leading the club in rushing attempts (170), yards (830), and touchdowns (5). He added another 197 yards in the playoffs and heads into 2023 with a strong grip on the top job.

Where things unravel a bit for Pacheco in terms of fantasy value is his lack of involvement in the passing game on a team that finished fifth in the NFL in attempts (651) last year. He had one encouraging effort in the playoffs (five catches for 59 yards in the AFC Championship Game) but otherwise managed just 14 receptions in his other 19 games. As long as he remains primarily an early-down back, his upside will be capped. Consider Pacheco a strong RB3 with the possibility for more.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Isiah Pacheco expected to play, Toney a gametime decision
Toe injury for Chiefs WR
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 24, 7:00 am

Kansas City Chiefs
#Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) is listed as questionable, but he should be good to go, source said. WR Kadarius Toney (toe) is a game-time decision. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Pacheco will be active today for Kansas City but Toney, who got in just one limited practice (Friday) this week will be a gametime call. This is a good matchup for Pacheco against a Bears defense that's given up the 5th most fantasy points to running backs through two games.


Injury Isiah Pacheco, Kadarius Toney listed as questionable
Richie James ruled out
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 22, 4:09 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Isiah Pacheco, Willie Gay, and Kadarius Toney are questionable for Sunday's game. Nick Bolton and Richie James are out. (Chiefs on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Toney is dealing with a toe injury and got in a limited session Friday but really hasn't been useful as a fantasy asset. As a result, he'll be tough to trust as a Flex option even in a juicy matchup against the Bears. Pacheco (hamstring) has been limited the last two days but seems like he'll be active.


Injury Isiah Pacheco cleared to practice
RB missed offseason work after undergoing multiple surgeries

Isiah Pacheco was back in a red jersey for the first time and took his place as RB1 for the first time. (ESPN.com - Adam Teicher)

FFToday's Take: HC Andy Reid told reporters after practice Monday that Pacheco "has a chance" to play in the team's preseason finale this weekend. He would almost certainly be limited to 10 or 15 plays at most if he plays, but the mere fact he is back at practice with about three weeks to go before the start of the regular season is a good sign. Pacheco is an injury risk merely because of how physically he runs, but he also possesses plenty of upside as the primary back in one of the best offenses in the league. Pacheco should be considered a strong RB3/flex option at worst.
