Donnie Avery | WR | Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery is still listed as a starter, but it remains to be seen whether he will remain atop the depth chart or even make the team. The team has high hopes for WR A.J. Jenkins, who could potentially take away some of Avery's playing time if Jenkins develops. The team also plans to draft at least one receiver, and if he is ready to help right away, Avery might be released.
Huddle Up: With only 2 TD catches and 72 total fantasy points this past season, Avery wasn't even rosterable in most fantasy leagues and that doesn't figure to change much, even if he sticks around for a second season in K.C.

The Kansas City Chiefs could release WR Donnie Avery, depending on what they do in free agency and/or the 2014 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Avery's debut season in K.C. lacked fantasy impact as he finished with only 40 catches, 2 scoring grabs and 1 100-yard game. Look for K.C. to prioritize getting a better weapon opposite Dwayne Bowe.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as probable for Week 6.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery had 7 catches for 141 yards Thursday, Sept. 19 in a 26-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Avery, who entered the game with only 4 catches for 49 yards, more than doubled the reception total of the other K.C. WRs combined and posted the second-highest yardage total of his career. Philly, evidentally, was focusing all of its attention on No. 1 WR Dwayne Bowe, who finished with only 1 catch for 4 yards.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin is running as the team's No. 2 receiver in camp. WR Donnie Avery has had issues with dropped passes and is working with the second unit.
Huddle Up: A WR2 in an Andy Reid offense should have some fantasy value, and if Baldwin can finally play up to his first-round talents he'll provide Alex Smith with a viable target opposite Dwayne Bowe.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has confirmed that WR Donnie Avery (ankle), TE Tony Moeaki (knee) and RB Shaun Draughn (hernia) are at the team's training camp facility, have passed physicals and are ready to participate in practice.
Huddle Up: Avery, who hit career highs with 60 receptions for 781 yards a year ago in Indy, could challenge those figures this year coming to a K.C. squad getting a new QB but lacking in dependable pass-catching targets.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery has missed a majority of the organized team activities because of a high ankle sprain. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: In a stunning development, Avery is sidelined with an injury. He appears to be an ideal fit for Andy Reid's passing game in Kansas City, but he'll need to get on the field in order to carve out his role. Hopefully he won't be too far behind the curve when he returns to action in July.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery (ankle) injured his ankle during organized team activities Tuesday, May 14, and has been limited the past few days.
Huddle Up: This doesn't help the cause of the free-agent signee who is battling Jonathan Baldwin and Terrance Copper for the Chiefs' No. 2 WR job.
