Is Clyde Edwards-Helaire Worth a 1st-Round Pick?

A deep discussion at the whether Edwards-Helaire should be taken in the first

This article is about a 31-minute read.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire is an ADP rocketship! Prior to the opt-out from Damien Williams, Edwards-Helaire was generally taken around Pick 27 or so. And some in the fantasy community thought that was a bit early. Since Williams' July 29 opt-out, Edwards-Helaire's draft stock has soared!

Now, he's often off the board in the first round.

ESPN's Matthew Berry says it's "100%" that Edwards-Helaire will be off the board in the first round.

In a recent Pros vs. Joes draft, Edwards-Helaire was the 1.01 selection. That's first overall.

A rocket ship!

To be completely informed, let's look at the Pros vs. Joes format:
  • The scoring system is the same one used in the Footballguys Players Championship
  • This is a best-ball league with no waiver wire, so this is each player's team for the entire season
  • There is no trading, so if Team 1 really wanted Edwards-Helaire, they HAD to take him at 1.01

So, is Clyde Edwards-Helaire worth a first-round pick? If so, where in the first round? If not, when?
