Charcandrick West - RBPosted 11/27/15 5:44pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) missed practice Friday, Nov. 27 and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: West hasn't practiced all week, and it would be surprising at this point if he's able to play Sunday. Spencer Ware, who totaled 101 yards and scored a pair of TDs after taking over for the injured West last Sunday, is in line for his first start.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/27/15 11:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) tweaked his ankle in practice Friday, Nov. 27, but head coach Andy Reid thinks Kelce will be fine for Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Kelce tweaked his ankle in practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo. Kelce is coming down to a game-time decision, so owners will need to have another option ready to go in case he doesn't play.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 11/26/15 2:24pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: That's two missed practices in two days for West, and he's going to need to make some substantial progress Friday to have a shot at playing in Week 12.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/26/15 6:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: The main concern for Kelce's fantasy owners has been the tight end's production -- and not his nagging health issues -- as he's had three straight games with fewer than 50 receiving yards and only has had one TD catch since Week 1.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 11/22/15 9:04pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 11 times for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also had a five-yard reception on his only target.
Huddle Up: Charcandrick West injured his hamstring and Ware was the next man up to feast on the Chargers' dreadful rush defense. Ware will get the start next week if West can't go. He'll be a RB2 in the Chiefs' offense.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/28/15 3:45pm ET
According to report Wednesday, Oct. 28, Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin is scheduled for a full practice workload this week after sitting out Week 7 with a concussion.
Huddle Up: Maclin actually cleared the concussion protocol late last week, but was still held out by the Chiefs more or less as a precaution. As long as all goes well in practice this week, expect him back on the field Sunday against the Lions in London as a solid WR1.
Jamaal Charles - RBPosted 10/25/15 7:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West was strong in place of RB Jamaal Charles (knee) on Sunday, Oct. 25. West ran for 110 yards on 22 carries and scored one touchdown in a 23-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: West struggled last week but was much more effective against the Steelers. West is now locked in as the Chiefs' top back. He'll be an RB2 next week.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/23/15 9:53am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (concussion) is expected to receive clearance from the concussion protocol Friday, Oct. 23, and play in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Good news for the Chiefs, as they're woefully thin on offensive weapons. If Maclin is cleared as expected he belongs in fantasy lineups this weekend.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/23/15 5:55pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 23 but has cleared the concussion protocol according to coach Andy Reid and is listed as questionable for the Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: It's looked iffy for most of the week, but it now appears Maclin will play Sunday barring a setback over the next two days. He had three straight games with at least eight receptions and 85 yards before catching three passes for 48 yards in his injury-shortened Week 6 outing in Minnesota.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/23/15 9:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (concussion) has passed his concussion tests, but the team will see how he feels this weekend before deciding on his status for the Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Maclin was able to participate in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and performed well.
Huddle Up: Maclin looks like he'll play but owners will have to wait until Sunday to get official word. Maclin has a good matchup against the Steelers this week, so hopefully he'll be able to go.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/22/15 7:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as Maclin remains in the concussion protocol after suffering his injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings. Friday, however, should bring some more definitive news one way or another.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/21/15 2:20pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (concussion) sat out practice Wednesday, Oct. 21 and must pass the league's concussion protocol this week in order to play in Week 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Maclin has been QB Alex Smith's favorite target, compiling 39 catches (eighth-most in the league) on 56 targets for 531 yards and a touchdown. WRs Albert Wilson and Chris Conley would likely be the top receivers if Maclin isn't cleared in time.
Huddle Up: You know the drill, Maclin owners as you're likely going to have to wait until Friday at the earliest to find out if you'll have the services of the top-20 fantasy wideout this Sunday.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/18/15 10:41pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West had nine carries for 33 yards and one catch for six yards in a 16-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.
Huddle Up: West also had a costly fumble late. West had moved ahead of Knile Davis but if he doesn't play better, Davis will start receiving more carries soon. To be fair though, neither back was impressive on Sunday.
Knile Davis - RBPosted 10/17/15 8:01pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West has the team eager to see what he can do in Week 6. 'Quietly, they kind of like West,' ESPN.com's Adam Teicher said. 'The term has been used to me, 'a poor man's Jamaal Charles.' They think there are a lot of similarities in how they go about business. Now, he's not as good as Charles, don't mistake that. But they're kind of eager to see what he can do.' Teicher said RB Knile Davis could get more of the goal-line opportunities because he's the bigger back. But the Chiefs might prefer West in every other situation since he's a much better pass-catcher, a more versatile runner and likely at least as good in pass protection. Teicher doesn't expect any running back to carry the load the way Charles did. But if one does emerge in that role down the road, West has a better chance than Davis.
Huddle Up: Both backs will see touches on Sunday but West had moved past Davis on the depth chart. If West plays well, he could be the top option in the Chiefs' backfield going forward. He's the back with the most upside but he'll need to produce to keep Davis on the bench.
Knile Davis - RBPosted 10/12/15 1:16pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Knile Davis both expect to split carries with RB Jamaal Charles (knee) expected to miss the rest of the season, and head coach Andy Reid said the two running backs will continue to split time without committing to anything on the depth chart. West had seven carries for 31 yards while Davis had just two carries for two yards in Week 5. 'I'm not saying who is or is not the feature guy, but we need both of them,' Reid said. 'Both their games are different. We'll just see how that goes. You saw both of them played today, so we'll get back to the drawing board on that and get it right.'
Huddle Up: West is the top pickup this week but Davis should be added as well. Both backs will get carries with West the first to see if he can establish himself with Charles out for the season.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/11/15 8:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West ran seven times for 31 yards in the Week 5 game against the Chicago Bears once RB Jamaal Charles (knee) went down.
Huddle Up: West has jumped Knile Davis as the No. 2 back in Kansas City. There's a chance the two could split carries with Charles likely out for the season but right now West is the back to target on the waiver wire.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 10/5/15 12:10pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin had 11 catches for 148 yards in a 36-21 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Maclin doesn't score much because he players receiver for the Chiefs but he's putting up big numbers
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 9/29/15 12:39am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin posted eight receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Sept. 28. He is the first wide receiver to score a touchdown for the Chiefs since 2013.
Huddle Up: Sadly, it took the Packers pulling ahead 31-7 early in the third quarter before Maclin had his first reception and his 5-yard scoring catch with 56 seconds remaining in the third quarter snapped the Chiefs' confounding streak. Maclin finished with a team-high 11 targets, but Andy Reid and K.C. are going to have to open things up more in the passing game for Maclin to continue to have fantasy-starting value.
Jamaal Charles - RBPosted 9/18/15 1:01am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles had 125 yards rushing, a touchdown and two fumbles on 21 carries and had four catches for two yards in a 31-24 loss to the Denver Broncos Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Hey, Charles' fantasy owners at least received 14.7 (standard-scoring) fantasy points out the TNF game while those residing in Chiefs Kingdom received a punch to the gut. Charles lost three total fumbles all last season, and remains a solid RB1.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/15/15 4:45pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (hip) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Sept. 15. Kelce left the game last week briefly, presumably because of the hip, but returned.
Huddle Up: Kelce is good to go, and even on the short week facing a formidable defense, he remains one of the elite fantasy TE options.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/9/15 8:07pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Kelce is a full-go to start this week against Houston. He's a Top three or four tight end even against a tough Texans' defense.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/7/15 4:38pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Kelce sprained his ankle in the preseason but he's all set to start vs. Houston in the opener. Kelce is a Top 5 tight end for Week 1.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/1/15 4:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce would be able to play if the Chiefs had a game Tuesday, Sept. 1, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kelce is recovering from an ankle sprain.
Huddle Up: Yes, Kelce's fantasy owners can take a breath now.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 8/31/15 6:06pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (leg) left practice early Monday, Aug. 31, because of a right leg injury. Kelce was able to walk off the field but did not return to practice.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs haven't updated Kelce's condition, so the extent of his injury isn't known yet. The fantasy community holds its breath while we wait further news.
Chris Conley - WRPosted 8/31/15 11:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley lined up at one of the starting wide receiver positions in practice Monday, Aug. 31. He replaced the injured WR Albert Wilson (shoulder), who was shaken up in the last preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: The speedy third-round pick has had a pedestrian preseason so far with three catches for 30 yards on six targets but there is certainly opportunity in the K.C. WR corps. Just don't expect much fantasy-wise outside of any Chief outside of the Big Three (Jamaal Charles, Travis Kelce and Jeremy Maclin).
Alex Smith - QBPosted 8/29/15 1:15am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 16 of 18 passing for 171 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-10 win over the Tennessee Titans in the preseason Friday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: Smith led the Chiefs to three straight scoring drives before calling it a night in the second quarter. Smith won't play next week, so he finishes the preseason 33-of-46 for 294 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Smith will be a QB2 and bye-week replacement heading into the season.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 8/29/15 1:15am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin had seven catches for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 34-10 win over the Tennessee Titans in a preseason game Friday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: Maclin was targeted seven times in the first half and caught all seven targets. The Chiefs have made it a priority to get Maclin the ball this preseason. Maclin hasn't been getting much love this offseason because Alex Smith didn't throw a touchdown pass to a wide receiver last year. However, Maclin has value at his current sixth round ADP
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 8/11/15 12:19am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has impressed QB Alex Smith in practices this summer. 'I feel like that's the ultimate tool. For coach (Andy) Reid, he just loves drawing up stuff and creating stuff, so Jeremy will be all over the field,' Smith said. 'He'll be inside, he'll be outside, deep, short, running the ball, throwing the ball. I mean Jeremy is a guy that can do so much.' Head coach Andy Reid's schemes and offensive language remain largely the same from the time he and Maclin worked together with the Philadelphia Phillies, so Maclin doesn't need a ton of time to acclimate to his new offense.
Huddle Up: While Maclin's big-play prowess seems to a poor fit for the short passing game of Smith and the Chiefs, he'll receive plenty of targets as the clear No. 1 WR on a team where (yes, again) a wideout failed to catch a scoring pass last season.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 8/7/15 11:30pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson was listed as the No. 2 receiver on the depth chart for their preseason opener against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Wilson played well at the end of 2014 and has had a strong training camp so far. His upside is limited in the Chiefs' offense but Wilson is worth a flier later on in PPR drafts.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 8/2/15 6:56pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin caught a long pass from QB Alex Smith on the second play of training camp Saturday, Aug. 1, and he caught a few more deep balls during the day. 'We've got a new weapon,' Smith said. 'We've got to test it out a little bit. We've known for a while what we've got with him.'
Huddle Up: The Maclin-K.C. match is an intriguing one to say the least as the big-play wideout had seven receptions of 40 or more yards last season -- more than double the total (3) of the entire K.C. team.
