    Posted 9/25/16 6:56am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play in Week 3's game against the New York Jets, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This appears to be a precautionary measure for Charles, who has yet to suit up for a regular-season game this year but is likely to see action versus the Pittsburgh Steelers next week. RB Spencer Ware will once again serve as the team's lead back and should be viewed as an RB2 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR
    Posted 9/25/16 9:00pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin was targeted seven times in Week 3 against the New York Jets, but he managed four catches for 35 yards.

    Huddle Up: Maclin is averaging five receptions per game this season, which is decent in PPR leagues. However, his yardage total was a season low, and he hasn't found the end zone since the opener. He should be treated as a WR3 in most standard leagues until he gets untracked.

  • Travis Kelce - TE
    Posted 9/25/16 9:00pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce completed six receptions for 89 yards with a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the New York Jets. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has rolled up five or more receptions in each of his three games, and Sunday's game marked his first foray into the end zone. He is a tremendous TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 at Pittsburgh.

  • Spencer Ware - RB
    Posted 9/25/16 8:26pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 20 times for 75 yards in the Week 3 game against the New York Jets and he added one reception for eight yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day for Ware, but he was a serviceable RB2 in most fantasy formats. He faces a decent fantasy outlook in Week 4 in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/23/16 12:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the New York Jets. While most of his work in practice this week was on the scout team, head coach Andy Reid said Charles saw a bit of first-team work as well.

    Huddle Up: Charles appears primed for a Week 4 debut versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, although it should be noted the Chiefs have a Week 5 bye. Either way, he's almost certain to share backfield duties with Spencer Ware for at least a few weeks and possibly the remainder of the season when he returns. Kansas City's offense can support two backs in fantasy, although both will likely be relegated to RB2 status if they split work.

    Posted 9/22/16 3:53pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, September 22.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Andy Reid has already indicated that it's more likely than not that Charles will sit out another week. Even if he does manage to suit up, he would be shaping up as a risky play at best. As a result, look for Spencer Ware to continue to settle in as a fine RB2 in Kansas City's upcoming tilt with the Jets.

    Posted 9/21/16 4:53pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Charles' practice participation during the week to see if he has any chance to play in Week 3. He likely would be limited if he is active for the game and probably should be avoided.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/21/16 10:58pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is likely to sit again in Week 3. Head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that 'another week is going to help him. We'll just see.'

    Huddle Up: Charles has been inactive for the first two games, as Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. Fantasy owners should be patient, as it could be another week or two before Charles returns to game action, and a handful of games before he regains fantasy relevance.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/19/16 10:36am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) 'looked better' in practice last week, but head coach Andy Reid was noncommittal when asked about his status for Week 3 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: The nightmare continues for owners who drafted Charles in the second or third round of drafts this summer hoping they were getting a discounted rate on a potential RB1 who could take over the backfield sometime before the end of September. The good news is that a return seems imminent. When he does make it back, he'll likely split backfield work with Spencer Ware.

    Posted 9/18/16 7:02am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is expected to make his season debut against the New York Jets in Week 3, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: RB Spencer Ware will once again serve as Kansas City's primary running back for Week 2's game against the Houston Texans. He had 70 rushing yards and 129 receiving yards in the season opener versus the San Diego Chargers and should be viewed as a solid RB2 option. Charles makes a risky fantasy option for Week 3 at this point because it is uncertain how many snaps he will see.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/18/16 9:02am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Spencer Ware should receive a majority of the playing time at running back with Charcandrick West also seeing snaps. Ware should be a solid No. 2 running back in most leagues despite his toe injury, while West could be an attractive flex option.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/16/16 12:06pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is considered doubtful to play in the team's Week 2 game Sunday, September 18, versus the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: He was also announced as doubtful for the season opener, which he ultimately did not suit up for, so this isn't exactly encouraging for his fantasy owners. If Charles has to sit again, Spencer Ware will carry the load and should be a solid RB2 after his impressive season debut last week. At home against the Charges, Ware ran for 70 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries, while also impressively adding 129 receiving yards on seven receptions.

  • Spencer Ware - RB
    Posted 9/16/16 1:49pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Ware likely will receive another start and will share carries with Charcandrick West in Week 2. Ware can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in a majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR
    Posted 9/15/16 3:14pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (personal) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 15, for personal reasons.

    Huddle Up: Details were not disclosed, but Maclin doesn't seem to be ailing physically. He's good to go for Sunday and should be started as a No. 2 wide receiver against a Houston Texans defense that allowed 196 yards to receivers last week -- eighth most in the league.

  • Spencer Ware - RB
    Posted 9/15/16 7:06pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Ware is expected to play in Week 2, and as he showed in the opener, he can be a valuable fantasy starter until Jamaal Charles is healthy and handling a full workload.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/15/16 6:57pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: If Charles does play in Week 2, it will likely be in a limited capacity. Keep him on the bench and turn to Spencer Ware.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/14/16 10:14am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is practicing Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Charles isn't a lock to return for Week 2, so you'll want to keep a close eye on his status leading into the game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Sept. 18. Additionally, Charles is unlikely to return to a bell-cow role following Spencer Ware's showing in Week 1 (199 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown). Stay tuned for updates, but Charles owners will want to remain patient.

  • Spencer Ware - RB
    Posted 9/14/16 10:08am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, because of a sprained toe.

    Huddle Up: Ware was a fantasy star in Week 1 with 70 rushing yards on 11 attempts, 129 receiving yards on seven receptions and a rushing score. The bulk of his production also came with Kansas City trailing by a large margin, which defies the gamescript typical of monster performances from running backs. With Jamaal Charles (knee) still in limbo for Week 2, Ware stands to have another solid fantasy showing, as long as he's ready to go.

  • Spencer Ware - RB
    Posted 9/14/16 10:28am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) will be 'okay' for the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: It's still worth monitoring Ware's involvement in practice this week, but he appears locked in for another solid fantasy showing. Houston projects as a difficult matchup, but after posting 199 yards from scrimmage on just 11 carries and seven receptions, it's ill-advised to discount Ware's upside.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/14/16 3:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Charles' status for Week 2 is uncertain at this point, so owners should monitor his practice participation. Owners may want to wait another week or two before considering Charles as a starting option because he probably will receive limited touches.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/13/16 7:29am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) could sit again in Week 2 as he is the least healthy of the team's four running backs, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Spencer Ware had an 11-70-1 line on the ground, and he caught seven balls for 129 yards as well in Week 1. He'll have a tough matchup against the Houston Texans, but he could be a low-end RB1 option for Week 2. Charles owners are going to have to be patient as he may be a few weeks from returning to dependability in fantasy.

  • Spencer Ware - RB
    Posted 9/13/16 9:31am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RBs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West each played 34 of the team's 71 snaps in a Week 1 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Despite the equal distribution of snaps, Ware owned a clear 18-9 edge in touches and 199-23 advantage in total yards. While West needs to be owned in most leagues should Ware get injured, it is becoming very clear the Chiefs' brass views the latter as the more dangerous offensive threat. Ware should be considered a RB1 for as long as Jamaal Charles is sidelined.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/11/16 8:03am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play in Week 1's game against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Sept. 11, according to a source. He had been listed as doubtful on the injury report.

    Huddle Up: RB Spencer Ware will receive the bulk of the playing time Sunday and should be viewed as a viable starting option in all formats. RBs Charcandrick West and Knile Davis are also expected to see action but probably won't receive enough carries to warrant using in fantasy lineups.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/11/16 9:07am ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 1 game.

    Huddle Up: Spencer Ware likely will be the starting running back for the Chiefs, but Charcandrick West will also receive playing time during the game. Ware could be considered a No. 2 in most fantasy leagues, while West should be a solid flex option for owners.

  • Jeremy Maclin - WR
    Posted 9/11/16 2:31pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (head) will be evaluated for a concussion after taking a hit in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 1 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next day or two because Maclin could be questionable for Week 2 if he is dealing with a concussion. He posted 63 receiving yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and is a weekly starting option when he is healthy.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/9/16 12:02pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is considered doubtful for the team's season opener Sunday, September 11, and 'probably' won't play, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Charles has been limited in practice this week, and apparently, he hasn't shown enough to Reid that would indicate he's ready to make his return from a torn ACL. As long as he's out, Spencer Ware will be a hot commodity to monitor in Week 1, as he'll have potential to serve as a legitimate RB1 option across all formats.

  • Knile Davis - RB
    Posted 9/9/16 6:50pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is likely to start against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1, according to head coach Andy Reid, but Reid said RB Charcandrick West and RB Knile Davis will also be used.

    Huddle Up: If you plan on gambling on one of Kansas City's backs in Week 1, Ware is your best bet.

  • Charcandrick West - RB
    Posted 9/8/16 7:56pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (elbow) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

    Huddle Up: West could be worth a look as a flex option if Jamaal Charles sits out, but Spencer Ware is the preferred option if you are trying to take advantage of Charles' knee injury.

  • Jamaal Charles - RB
    Posted 9/8/16 7:51pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

    Huddle Up: If Charles does suit up, he isn't expected to see his regular workload. He should eventually provide RB1 production, but bench him in Week 1 if you have a quality backup.

  • Charcandrick West - RB
    Posted 9/7/16 3:16pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (elbow) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: West will have a role on offense in Week 1 but could receive more work if Jamaal Charles is not able to play. West can be a decent flex option in leagues this week.
