Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/14/18 9:03pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught seven of his 12 targets for 142 yards and three touchdowns in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: The scary thing is Hill did most of his damage in the last 16 minutes of the game, scoring from 14 yards out late in the third quarter before catching what appeared to be an overthrow for a 1-yard score and burning the Patriots for a 75-yarder late in the final stanza. Hill can be a bit hit-or-miss by fantasy WR1 standards in the consistency department, but his production is certainly at that level. The overall WR2 in PPR leagues obviously needs to be started in all leagues in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 10/14/18 9:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes finished 23-of-36 for 352 yards and four touchdowns to go along with a pair of interceptions in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots. He added two carries for nine yards.
Huddle Up: Mahomes threw all four of his touchdowns in the second half, giving him three such games through six starts this season. He broke through the glass ceiling in this contest with a 67-yard hookup with Kareem Hunt on the first drive in the third quarter before connecting with Tyreek Hill three times over the final 16 minutes. With 20 total touchdowns to his name through so far, Mahomes is about as must-start as they get in fantasy, including in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/14/18 9:50pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 10 times for 80 yards and caught five of his six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: For perspective, Hunt tallied five catches on nine targets for 66 yards over his first five games combined. The second-year back did the bulk of his damage early in third quarter when Patrick Mahomes bought some time and Hunt got past his defender for a 67-yard connection. Head coach Andy Reid's usage of his top back has been curious at times this season, but Hunt still finds himself as the overall RB8 after six games. Kill remain firmly in the RB1 discussion in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/14/18 10:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins managed only two catches for 18 yards on four targets in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots. He also lost a yard on his only rushing attempt.
Huddle Up: Watkins had managed at least 78 yards or a touchdown in his last three games, so this was a disappointment for his fantasy owners. He didn't make his first catch until late in the third quarter and obviously did not appear to be a big part of the game plan at any point. Nevertheless, expect him to bounce back and deliver WR3 production against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 10/14/18 10:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce turned nine targets into five catches for 61 yards in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Kelce was Patrick Mahomes' favorite target early, but he did not record a single catch in the second half of a shootout as the Patriots made some adjustments to take him away, freeing up Tyreek Hill to go crazy instead. Since his one-catch opener, this is the worst fantasy effort Kelce has posted this season, so owners don't have much to complain about. He'll be in the running for overall TE1 honors next week against the Cincinnati Bengals' defense that has struggled mightily against tight ends.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 10/13/18 6:52pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes faces the New England Patriots in Week 6, and the last eight quarterbacks to face the Patriots with fewer than 10 career starts under their belts have gone a combined 0-8 with six touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Huddle Up: Bill Belichick knows how to make life tough on rookie quarterbacks, but unless you happen to have two elite quarterbacks on your roster, you can't bench Mahomes in Week 6. The Kansas City offense looks too good right now.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/11/18 3:10pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Watkins is coming off a solid Week 5 performance against one of the best defenses in the NFL and has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last four games. He can be considered a solid No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/10/18 2:41pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs Sammy Watkins (hamstring) put in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: There are expected to be and supposed to be a massive amount of points in this contest between the Chiefs and New England Patriots. As such, you can do worse than to start Watkins as a WR3 or flex as he comes off a six-catch, 78-yard performance.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/7/18 6:14am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 5's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, assuming that he doesn't experience any setbacks during pregame warmups.
Huddle Up: Watkins was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited practice participant throughout the week. Despite the difficulty of the matchup, Watkins should be viewed as a decent WR3 or flex option this week due to the success of the Kansas City passing offense, assuming he is active.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/7/18 9:20am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is officially active for the Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Watkins will be facing a tough Jacksonville Jaguars defense this week, which makes him a risky option for owners. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 10/7/18 6:51pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 22-of-38 passes for 313 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, although he did rush for a score.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is human after all. After tossing 13 pass TDs over his first three games, he has just one passing score and two interceptions over his past two outings. He is still working on a streak of four straight 300-yard games and he has rushed for a score in two in a row, so there's that. Next up is a Sunday Night Football road date with Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 6.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/7/18 7:20pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins was good for six receptions for 78 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: The good news is Watkins made it through the game without any setbacks from the hamstring ailment he suffered on Monday night in Denver. It appears safe to plug him back into the fantasy lineup for the Week 6 road game against the Patriots.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/7/18 7:07pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 22 times for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Hunt didn't seem to be terribly affected by the No. 1 defense of the Jaguars. Sure, he was limited to 4.0 yards per carry, but he found the end zone and was able to rip off a 24-yard run in the game. He got off to a bit of a slow start, but he is starting to click again. He is a legit low-end RB1 in all fantasy leagues. The Chiefs play the Patriots on Sunday night in Week 6.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/7/18 7:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was good for four receptions and 61 yards on seven targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added two runs for 26 yards.
Huddle Up: Hill opened the season with three touchdowns in his first two games, but he has been blanked in each of the past three. He also hasn't had a 100-yard game in four straight since Week 1. The Chiefs are winning, so the team isn't likely to shake things up offensively. Still, Hill remains a solid fantasy option for his versatility and ability to house it any time he gets the ball in his hands. He and his teammates travel to meet the Patriots in Week 6 on Sunday night.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/5/18 1:11pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Watkins will be able to play this week. He is part of one of the best passing offenses in the NFL and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays even though he would be facing a tough opponent.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/4/18 3:45pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Watkins appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 5, but owners will know more about his status in the next few days. He would be facing a tough Jacksonville Jaguars secondary if he plays and could be benched if owners have better options.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/3/18 3:07pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Watkins left Monday's game in Denver due to a hamstring injury, and it's uncertain if he'll be ready for Week 5. If not, it would be Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and De'Anthony Thomas likely stepping up and absorbing a couple more targets in his stead. We'll have a clearer picture of the status for Watkins by Friday.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/1/18 6:11pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) left the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos in the first half on Monday, Oct. 1 due to a hamstring injury and he was taken to the locker room for further evaluation.
Huddle Up: If Watkins is forced to miss the rest of the game it would likely mean Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and perhaps De'Anthony Thomas will see more targets and snaps.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 10/1/18 7:40pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was unable to return to the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos due to a hamstring injury suffered in the first half.
Huddle Up: Watkins went without any offensive statistics while being targeted just once before checking out of the game for good. Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and De'Anthony Thomas stepped up trying to fill the void.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 10/1/18 8:18pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 28-of-45 passes for 304 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1. He added a rushing score, too.
Huddle Up: Mahomes went over 300 yards on his final throw of the game, which helped set up the Chiefs for a game-winning TD run by Kareem Hunt with 1:40 to go in the fourth quarter. He has gone over 300 yards in each of his past three outings, although this game marked his first time with just one TD pass. He made up for it with the running score, however. The Chiefs will be tested by the strong defense of the Jaguars in Week 5.
Demetrius Harris - TEPosted 10/1/18 8:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris posted two receptions for 59 yards on three targets in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Harris had just the two grabs, but they were good for 35 and 24 yards. He might have been seeing more looks with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) exiting the game early. Despite the fair stat line, he is still not someone who belongs on a fantasy roster unless disaster strikes and the team loses Travis Kelce. The Chiefs host the Jaguars in Week 5.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 10/1/18 8:28pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce racked up game highs with seven receptions, 78 yards and the only touchdown catch of the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Kelce started out slowly, but he ended up finishing strong while posting 12 targets. After a stinker in Week 1, he has 22 receptions for 301 yards and three scores across his past three games. He might be the best fantasy tight end in the NFL, surpassing New England's Rob Gronkowski, who has not been terribly durable lately.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/1/18 8:24pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 19 times for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1, and he added three grabs for 54 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: It was Hunt's finest performance of the season, and one fantasy owners expected from the NFL's leading rusher from 2017. He had season highs across the board with 19 carries, 121 yards, 6.4 yards per rush, three receptions and 54 receiving yards. He'll face another tough defense in Week 5 against the Jaguars.
Chris Conley - WRPosted 10/1/18 8:42pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley snagged four receptions for just 13 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Conley was busy, as he was called upon for more work with Sammy Watkins sidelined. While the catches were nice, the yardage total was poor. He'll look to improve in Week 5 against the Jaguars, but he is only worth a roster spot in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/1/18 8:40pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill had nine receptions for 54 yards on 13 targets in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: The yardage total wasn't great and he failed to get into the end zone, but fantasy owners in PPR formats weren't complaining too vehemently after the game-best nine grabs. The Chiefs will get another tough test from the Jaguars in Week 5.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/27/18 7:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce faces the Denver Broncos in Week 4, and in his last three meetings against the Broncos, he has 26 catches on 37 targets for 394 yards and two touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Kelce has posted back-to-back 100-yard games, and he should keep the momentum going against Denver. He's always a must-start option in season-long leagues, but Kelce could also be worth paying up for in DFS contests this weekend.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 9/23/18 3:31pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Hunt's average of just 2.4 yards per rush isn't going to make fantasy owners very happy, but the two scores cushion the blow a bit. He exploded on the scene last season, but these were his first scores of the year and he has been held to 50 or fewer total yards from scrimmage in two of his three outings so far. Treat him more as a RB2 in fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 9/23/18 3:27pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-38 passes for 314 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 win against the San Francisco 49ers. He now holds the NFL record with 13 TD passes through the first three games of a season.
Huddle Up: Mahomes continues to set records on a regular basis, as he is showing no signs of slowing down in a potent Kansas City offense. The single-season record for TD passes in a season was 55, set by Peyton Mannng in 2013. At this rate Mahomes could flirt with that number, although he has to slow down at some point, doesn't he?
Chris Conley - WRPosted 9/23/18 3:48pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley had two grabs for just 13 yards in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he was able to score a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Conley is well down the pecking order for targets behind Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins, but he has managed touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. Despite the two scores, he has been targeted just six times in three games and has minimal fantasy appeal heading into Week 4 in Denver.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 9/23/18 3:46pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins posted five grabs for 55 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Watkins is the tertiary receiving option in Kansas City behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, but the speedy veteran flashed in this one. He remains a productive WR4 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
