Schefter: Chiefs' Isiah Pacheco (ankle) will play in AFC Championship game Sunday
What it means:
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco (ankle) will play in Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. Pacheco missed the Chiefs' first two practices of the week while dealing with an ankle injury but was able to return to a limited session on Friday. The second-year back will reportedly play through his injury Sunday as the Chiefs look to upset the top-seeded Ravens. Pacheco has a $7,800 salary on FanDuel and is projected to score 12.9 fantasy points against the Ravens, with 73 rushing yards, 14.7 receiving yards, and 0.5 touchdowns. Baltimore allowed the fewest rushing touchdowns to running backs during the regular season (5), but did allow the seventh-highest yards per carry (4.5). As long as the game remains close on the scoreboard and Pacheco remains healthy enough to play, he should remain heavily involved in the Chiefs' offense.
