Travis Kelce - TEPosted 2/1/16 9:38am ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught five passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns in the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 31.
Huddle Up: Apparently Pro Bowl coaches know how to use Kelce better than Andy Reid. Here's hoping Reid was taking notes and incorporates more Kelce into the Chiefs' 2016 playbook.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/31/16 4:53pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce said he is 'more motivated than ever' after receiving a 5-year, $46 million extension.
Huddle Up: Kelce set or matched career highs across the board this past season with 103 targets, 72 receptions, 875 yards and five TDs, the general feeling is that K.C. certainly can use him more.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/29/16 2:06pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce agreed to five-year, $46 million extension Friday, Jan. 29, with $20.5 million guaranteed. He's the second-highest paid tight end in the league.
Huddle Up: Well deserved as Kelce finished in a tie for seventh among fantasy tight ends with 72 catches for 875 yards and five TDs, and the he has no where to go but up as he's only received double-digit targets once in 33 career regular-season games.
Jamaal Charles - RBPosted 1/21/16 8:26pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be back for the start of the regular season this year, according to general manager John Dorsey. 'The guy is an extremely talented player,' Dorsey said. 'I love him to death, love how dirty tough he is. Yeah, he's a Chief.' Charles missed all but five games in 2015 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
Huddle Up: Charles will hit 30 next season and will be coming off his second major knee injury in the last five years so don't be surprised if wee start to see him tail off a bit in production.
Brad Childress - OCPosted 1/19/16 11:20am ET
Kansas City Chiefs offensive assistant Brad Childress is being installed as the offensive coordinator in the wake of former offensive coordinator Doug Pederson departing to coach the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: So long as Childress handles the same duties he did as Andy Reid's OC in Philadelphia--namely, NOT calling plays--and isn't the team's solution to Reid's clock management issues... hey, he's a great hire.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 1/15/16 7:06pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin made the trip to New England for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Patriots and is officially listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: Nothing has really changed as Maclin remains a game-time decision. Even if he does play, though, he might be nothing more than a decoy.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 1/14/16 5:18pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (ankle) did some individual work early in practice Thursday, Jan. 14, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Things still remain sketchy with K.C.'s No. 1 wideout as he did not participate in team drills. As expected, it looks like we're headed toward a game-time decision Saturday, but it's not looking overly promising.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 1/12/16 1:57pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (ankle) had his right ankle wrapped and isn't practicing Tuesday, Jan. 12. However, he was moving around well for a player dealing with a high ankle sprain.
Huddle Up: No surprise at all this early in the week. Expect K.C.'s No. 1 wideout, though, to test the injury on the field in a day or two.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 1/12/16 7:25pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware missed practice Tuesday, Jan. 12, with a sprained ankle, but likely was just getting a rest-and-recovery day as it was the team's first practice of the week.
Huddle Up: Being the bigger back with the Chiefs holding a big lead most of the wild-card game last week, Ware did get double the rushes (16-8) of backfield mate Charcandrick West. The workload could flip-flop, though, this week as the Chiefs figure to have to pass more against the Patriots, and West is the better pass-catching back.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 1/10/16 2:35pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) did not tear his anterior cruciate ligament, but he did suffer a high-ankle sprain, according to a source. His status for this weekend's divisional playoff matchup with the New England Patriots is still uncertain.
Huddle Up: It's a good news/bad news scenario for the Chiefs' leading receiver, and it's likely going to be expecting too much for him to be able to play Saturday in Foxborough.
Justin Houston - LBPosted 1/8/16 3:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) and WR Chris Conley (thumb) are probable for the wild-card game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Houston missed the Chiefs' final five games of the regular season but still led the team with 7.5 sacks. Translation: It's not good timing for Brian Hoyer and the Texans' offense.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 1/8/16 3:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (hip) is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: There was some question over Maclin's status early in the week after he dinged his hip in the regular-season finale, but he's been a full-practice participant all week and will be looking to extend his TD-catch streak to four games Saturday.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 1/5/16 11:30pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin did not practice Tuesday, Jan. 5. He suffered a hip contusion in the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders, but said after the game that 'there's no way' he would miss the AFC Wild-Card Game Saturday, Jan. 9, against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Maclin paced the Chiefs and finished 16th among WRs with 158 fantasy points on 87 catches for 1,088 yards and eight TDs, and is the key target for Alex Smith and the K.C. passing game. Monitor his progress throughout the short week, but expect him to play Saturday afternoon in Houston.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 1/1/16 10:26pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Ware will complement Charcandrick West and handle short-yardage work. He's a RB3/Flex play against the Raiders.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 12/20/15 8:59pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West ran for 76 yards and scored one touchdown in a 34-14 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Spencer Ware didn't play with a rib injury. West will be anywhere from a high-end to a low-end RB2 depending on Ware's status for next week.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 12/18/15 6:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Ware was at least able to get in some limited work Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday but even if he does play Sunday in Baltimore, expect Charcandrick West to get the majority of the touches.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 12/17/15 10:50pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Ware still a couple of days to work with, but it's starting to look like Charandrick West could be shouldering the RB load Sunday in Baltimore. Stay tuned ...
Justin Houston - LBPosted 12/16/15 4:37pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) could miss the remainder of the regular season with a knee injury. He is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews.
Huddle Up: Heads up in IDP leagues as K.C.'s sacks leader doesn't sound like he's coming back any time soon after missing the last two games.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 12/16/15 11:29pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Ware is questionable to play on Sunday. If he can't go, Charcandrick West will be a high-end RB2 against the Ravens.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 12/14/15 7:47pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware underwent X-rays on the injured ribs he suffered during the team's Week 14 game, but they came back negative. He is dealing with bruised and swollen ribs and is dealing with pain.
Huddle Up: Follow Ware's status throughout the week, but don't be surprised if Charcandrick West winds up with a little heavier share of the workload next Sunday in Baltimore.
Justin Houston - LBPosted 12/11/15 4:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) has been ruled out for the Week 14 game against the San Diego Chargers.
Huddle Up: IDP league alert as Houston will miss a second straight start.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 12/9/15 4:33pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RBs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West likely will continue to rotate, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: After returning from a one-week absence this past Sunday, West had 11 touches and 44 total yards to Ware's 9-25, but it was the latter who scored on a 10-yard run in the third quarter. Expect much of the same Sunday in a juicy matchup against the Chargers, with TDs being the deciding factor in which back winds up with the better fantasy day.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 12/8/15 10:27pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has not thrown an interception in 305 attempts, which leads the NFL.
Huddle Up: Smith isn't putting up huge numbers but has had at least 13 fantasy points in all but one of his 11 games this season and is a rock-solid QB2 in most leagues.
Justin Houston - LBPosted 12/4/15 6:27pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: IDP alert as K.C.'s sacks leader will miss his first game since 2013. On the flip side, that's better news for Derek Carr and the Raiders' offense.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 12/4/15 6:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) and RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 4, and are listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: West owners will have the RB available after he was sidelined a week ago, but expect a near 50-50 split of the workload with Ware.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 12/2/15 3:26pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) will be a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Huddle Up: Good initial news this week for West owners, but keep in mind there's a good chance it could be close to a 50-50 workload split this week between West and Spencer Ware as there's no reason to run the former into the ground in his first game back given the latter's success in his absence.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 12/1/15 9:58pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are averaging 152.6 yards per game during the team's five-game winning streak. With RB Jamaal Charles earlier in the year, the Chiefs were averaging 109.8 rushing yards per game.
Huddle Up: K.C. continues to produce one of the league's more consistently productive rushing attacks on a week-to-week basis, but it'll be interesting to see if Andy Reid sticks to his one-primary-back approach once West returns from his hammy injury.
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.
