Isiah Pacheco Asserting Weekly RB2 Status 


Kansas City Chiefs' Isiah Pacheco is off to an impressive start in fantasy football, ranking among the top 12 running backs in half-PPR scoring with 53.00 points. 

In Week 5, Pacheco had a standout performance with 158 rushing yards on a 60% snap rate against the New York Jets. 

He currently ranks sixth among running backs in red-zone touches with 15, surpassing the combined total of Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (five). 

Pacheco is making a case for an increased role in the passing game, with strong statistics like 9.0 yards per reception and 2.09 yards per route run. 

Despite facing the Minnesota Vikings' strong pass defense, Pacheco's success has been aided by favorable game scripts. 

As a result, he is deserving of RB2 consideration for Week 5, with McKinnon and CEH playing secondary roles. 

Pacheco's performance and versatility make him a promising fantasy football option going forward.
