Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 12/2/16 12:47pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) was limited all week in practice and is questionable for Week 13 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Maclin has been sidelined since Week 9 and this week marked his first practices since the injury, so it is a good bet he will be on a snap count in this game if he plays. Tyreek Hill should have at least one more week as the Chiefs' top option at receiver and faces a secondary that lost top corner Desmond Trufant for the season earlier this week. Hill is a solid WR3 this week with WR2 upside.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 12/1/16 5:14pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.
Huddle Up: Maclin appears on track to return in Week 13 after missing a couple of games. He has underwhelmed even when healthy, but with a potential shootout with Atlanta on tap, Maclin could be worth a look as a flex option.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/30/16 3:40pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.
Huddle Up: Maclin has missed the last two weeks with this groin ailment, so he may not be fully out of the woods yet. If he's ready to return he'll return to a great matchup in what could be a shootout with the Atlanta Falcons. Use caution, though, Maclin could be eased back into things.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/30/16 3:53pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.
Huddle Up: Kelce has been one of the most consistent players on the Chiefs this year and he's on a nice hot streak too. A possible Jeremy Maclin return could mean fewer targets for Kelce, but Alex Smith's safety valve is still easily in TE1 territory.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/28/16 6:21am ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had eight catches for 101 yards in Week 12 Sunday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Kelce has gone over 100 two weeks in a row, but he is now without a touchdown since Week 8 and has just one score in seven games. The Atlanta Falcons have been good against tight ends the last five weeks, so he'll remain a midrange option at the position next week.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 11/28/16 6:12am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill scored three times in three different ways in Week 12 Sunday, Nov. 28. He had nine catches for 52 yards, a receiving touchdown, a rushing touchdown and he took an 86-yard kickoff return to the house.
Huddle Up: Hill has 23 catches for 194 yards and a score in his last three games. Those aren't eye-popping, but in PPR leagues, that's about 16 points per game. He's a decent WR3 right now with a good matchup against the Atlanta Falcons next week.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/25/16 12:27pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) did not practice Friday, Nov. 25, and appears likely to miss his third consecutive game in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Maclin obviously hasn't made much progress since aggravating a groin injury in Week 9 and should be considered week-to-week at this point. Tyreek Hill, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson will continue to get the bulk of the reps at receiver, not that it matters this week against the Broncos' vaunted secondary; none of the three are worth starting in fantasy. Spencer Ware and Travis Kelce will need to have big games if Kansas City hopes to muster any offense Sunday night.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/25/16 12:52pm ET
Updating a previous story, Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been ruled out for Week 12 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Maclin will miss his third consecutive game, although he was doing a whole lot for his owners prior to going down. Tyreek Hill, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson will all see significant snaps as a result, but none are worth using against Denver's stout secondary. Spencer Ware and Travis Kelce are the only Chiefs worth considering in fantasy for this Sunday night affair.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/23/16 3:06pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Come this weekend, Maclin will not have played in nearly a month, if he does play this weekend. And if he is active, he'll be up against arguably the best secondary in the NFL. If Maclin is active then he'll probably be best suited as a flex option.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/20/16 7:20pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce posted seven receptions for a game-high 108 yards in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was targeted nine times, most on his team.
Huddle Up: Kelce has 100 or more yards in two of his past four games, and he has three or more receptions in four straight, and nine of his 10 games overall. Lately he has looked more the part of TE1 after a bit of a slow start to the season. Week 12 will be difficult in Denver, but he remains a solid fantasy starting option.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 11/20/16 7:20pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill posted four catches for 53 yards on five targets in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he also rushed once for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Hill appears to have ascended to No. 1 receiver status in Kansas City, at least while Jeremy Maclin is on the shelf. Hill is a playmaker and he has tremendous speed to burn. Still, he should be treated as more of a WR3 in Week 12 in a tough matchup in Denver against the lockdown pass defense of the Broncos.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 11/20/16 7:19pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed 17 times for 69 yards in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two receptions for 16 yards on his only two targets.
Huddle Up: Ware remains a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 12 in Denver, as the Broncos have been surprisingly giving on the ground this season.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 11/20/16 7:18pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 24 of his 31 pass attempts for 261 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also rushed twice for 10 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Smith remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats, and that's especially the case in Week 12 in a difficult matchup on the road against the suffocating pass defense of the Denver Broncos.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/18/16 10:36am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Maclin did not practice at all this week, making it a virtual certainty he will sit out a second straight game. Tyreek Hill finished with 10 catches on 13 targets in his absence last week, so he is the clear favorite to benefit the most statistically from Maclin's absence, especially against a poor Tampa Bay Bucs' secondary. Hill should be considered a WR3 with upside in all formats in Week 11.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/18/16 5:09pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been ruled out for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Tyreek Hill should have a bigger role in the passing game with Maclin out of the lineup. He has recorded at least 89 yards in two of the last three games and has two touchdowns in his last four games. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.
Jamaal Charles - RBPosted 11/17/16 10:14am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: There was hope that Charles would be able to return for the postseason, but this surgery probably will end his season. Owners should consider Charles a No. 2 running back in drafts next season.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/17/16 10:27am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) will not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Maclin was not able to play in Week 10 and probably will miss another game if he is not able to practice Friday, Nov. 18. Owners in all leagues should look for other options to use in their lineups. Tyreek Hill has had a big role in the passing game over the last few weeks with Maclin sidelined and can be a solid option for owners.
Jamaal Charles - RBPosted 11/17/16 1:51pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) could return to the field this season thanks to his second knee scope. A return in late December or in the playoffs is still possible. Without the second scope, Charles would not have been able to return at all this season.
Huddle Up: This won't have much of an impact on Spencer Ware's fantasy value. Ware remains a weekly RB1 as long as he is healthy. That's including this week against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that allowed 100 rushing yards per game and nine total touchdowns in nine games to running backs.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/16/16 9:55am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) is out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a decent matchup if Maclin can make it back. However, he's questionable to play in Week 11, but he's a flex candidate if he returns.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 11/13/16 1:42pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and an interception on 25-for-38 passing. Smith missed Week 9 with a concussion.
Huddle Up: Smith has posted exactly one good fantasy game in 2016, which was the season opener. He should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 11/13/16 1:49pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed 13 times for 61 yards and added 11 yards on three catches in a Week 10 win against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Kansas City was down 17-3 at one point, which kept the offense from really committing to the ground game, despite Ware's per-touch success. He should get on track in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Arrowhead.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/13/16 2:13pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught three passes for 31 yards and added a two-point conversion in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Kelce was ejected last week for throwing his towel at an official, but he returned this week to politely hand the ball to the line judge after his conversion. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to KC in Week 11, when Kelce should be a reasonable fantasy starter.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 11/13/16 2:07pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught 10 passes for 89 yards and rushed once for 12 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Hill was asked to do more with Jeremy Maclin inactive, and the explosive rookie stepped up his game. While he didn't show his true dynamic ability with an average of 8.9 yards per catch, PPR gamers will be pleased with his 18.9 points as a consolation. Up next is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Monitor Maclin's status.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 11/11/16 4:37am ET
The Kansas City Chiefs are considering moving on from QB Alex Smith following the season and plan to use the final seven games to evaluate his talent level.
Huddle Up: No one's saying it would be a huge mistake to cut Smith yet, but Kansas City has at least made the playoffs behind Smith's decent numbers and the Chiefs are on track to do well all season. This could be a ploy to lure Kirk Cousins to Kansas City should he leave the Washington Redskins in free agency. Stay tuned.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/11/16 1:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Maclin has been a disappointment in fantasy this season, although Alex Smith likely deserves as much blame as he does for that. Travis Kelce should be a target hog in Week 10, while Tyreek Hill should receiver a bump in targets as well. Hill is worth a look in deeper leagues as Kansas City is drawing up ways to get the ball in his hands on a weekly basis.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 11/11/16 2:09pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) was able to practice in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to play in the Week 10 game against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Ware will face a Carolina rush defense allowing just 77.5 yards per game on the ground with only five touchdowns and two runs of 20 or more yards allowed. It's a risky move to use Ware this week in an unfavorable matchup while coming back from a head injury.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 11/11/16 2:02pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Smith faces a Panthers pass defense which ranks 29th in the NFL, allowing 286.0 yards per game with 17 touchdowns and 26 pass plays of 20 or more yards. He is a solid streaming option if you need a bye-week replacement in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 11/10/16 10:02am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) will not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: It is looking like Maclin will not be able to play this week, but owners will need to look for an update on his status later in the week. Maclin should be avoided in all leagues, but Albert Wilson could be a flex option in deeper leagues since he would see more targets if Maclin sits.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 11/10/16 5:18pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs aren't exactly a pass-happy team, but Smith has some DFS appeal in Week 10 against a Carolina secondary that has been routinely torched this season.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 11/10/16 5:14pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Ware looks set to return to the field in Week 10. He should reclaim his lead back role, but he is a RB2 against a tough Carolina run defense.
