Alex Smith - QBPosted 11/6/17 8:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith broke retired QB Bernie Kosar's NFL record for consecutive pass attempts to start a season without throwing an interception, making it to 287 passes before throwing his first one in the team's Week 9 game Sunday, Nov. 5. He broke Kosar's record by one.
Huddle Up: Smith still had yet another terrific game on Sunday night despite his Chiefs dropping to 6-3 with the loss in Dallas. In fact, he's having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league this year, leading everyone in QB Rating (113.9) while amassing 18 touchdown passes and 2,444 yards in nine games. As a result, he's established himself as a perennial QB1.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 11/5/17 8:06pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt finished with a season-low nine carries for 37 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.
Huddle Up: The rookie's rushing totals have been lacking in recent weeks, but an upcoming bye week and Week 11 matchup with an imploding New York Giants team should help Hunt return to his RB1 form.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 11/5/17 8:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finished with seven catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Kelce has now scored in three straight games, and he is challenging Rob Gronkowski for the title of top fantasy tight end.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 11/5/17 8:15pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill finished with two catches for 64 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown to close the first half, and he ran four times for nine yards in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Hill has managed just four catches over the last two games, but his big-play speed makes him a WR2 candidate on a weekly basis.
De'Anthony Thomas - WRPosted 11/3/17 3:44pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR De'Anthony Thomas is expected to work as the team's No. 2 wide receiver in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys with WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) ruled out.
Huddle Up: Thomas will be the team's No. 2 wideout, starting opposite Tyreek Hill. He could see an increase in targets, and the versatile receiver might even see a rush or two. However, he hasn't had more than three touches in a single game this season, so he is still only worth considering as a WR5 in deeper fantasy formats at this time.
Demarcus Robinson - WRPosted 11/3/17 3:43pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WRs Jehu Chesson and Demarcus Robinson could be in for larger roles in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys with WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) out. Head coach Andy Reid said Friday, Nov. 3, the team is unlikely to summon help from the practice squad.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs carry four healthy receivers into Week 9 with Wilson out, meaning Chesson and Robinson will be the third and fourth receivers. However, despite the fact they might see a couple of targets, their fantasy ceiling is still rather limited.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/30/17 9:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt was held to a season-low 68 yards from scrimmage in the team's Week 8 victory Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos. He had 46 rushing yards on 22 carries to go with three receptions for 22 yards. It was the first time Hunt did not record 100 total yards after hitting that plateau in an NFL-record seven straight games to begin his career.
Huddle Up: Well, Hunt's remarkable streak had to be snapped at some point, and it was halted by a stingy Broncos defense. Nonetheless, Hunt has been one of the league's biggest surprises in 2017 and this particular showing shouldn't suddenly slow down the 22-year-old. He should still be inserted as an RB1 in all leagues.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 10/30/17 10:03pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce registered seven receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 30, against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The receiving yards were a season high for the monstrous tight end, and the touchdown was his fourth of the season. Kelce is unquestionably one of the most talented at his position in all of pro football, and he continues to prove it on a weekly basis. Just keep firing him up as your TE1 for those who are fortunate enough to have him on the roster.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 10/30/17 10:01pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith had a season-worst performance in the team's Week 8 win Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos, completing just 14 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. He also added four rushes for 33 yards, while losing a fumble as well.
Huddle Up: Smith has been so terrific this year that tonight's poor outing can be forgiven, especially since he was squaring off with one of the best defenses in the league. At the end of the day, he's been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season, though it's fair to wonder if perhaps he's coming down considerably from his peak that was the first seven weeks of the campaign.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/28/17 12:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Huddle Up: West likely will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Chiefs this week and receive limited touches during the game. Owners should avoid West in all fantasy leagues.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/27/17 9:52am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has forced a NFL-high 37 missed tackles over the first seven games of his career, putting him on pace for 85 according to Pro Football Focus. Over the past two full seasons per PFF, no running back has finished with more than 60 in a season.
Huddle Up: Hunt's big plays have fallen off recently as the Chiefs have been without two starting offensive lineman and defenses have adjusted, but the rookie's ability to play through contact has been impressive throughout. With his two offensive linemen - guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and center Mitch Morse - expected back as soon as this week, look for Hunt's fantasy numbers to spike again soon. Keep him in fantasy lineups despite a difficult matchup with the Denver Broncos in Week 8.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/27/17 2:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) was able to practice in full on Friday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: West has practiced in full for each of the past two days and he appears on track to play Monday against the Broncos. When healthy he is more of a RB3 in PPR formats, and barely moves the needle for fantasy owners in standard formats as long as Kareem Hunt is healthy.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/26/17 4:15pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: West appears to be on track to play this week and should serve as the team's backup running back. He has not done much with his limited touches this season and can be avoided in all leagues.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/23/17 12:39pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) has a good chance to play in Week 8, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Owners will know more about West's status later in the week, so they should monitor the situation. He would see limited touches if he is active for Week 8 and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 10/23/17 1:50pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (72.4%) is on pace to break the NFL's single-season completion percentage record, which was set last year by Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford. Smith is also on track to best several personal records, including yards, yards per attempt, touchdowns and rating.
Huddle Up: Smith has arguably been the biggest surprise of the 2017 season. He's been a completely different player from a production standpoint. It may not feel right, but Smith has cemented himself as an every-week QB1 option.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/21/17 7:07pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is the only player in NFL history to gain 100 or more yards from scrimmage in each of his first seven games.
Huddle Up: Not only does Hunt lead the league in rushing, but his sizeable role in the passing game allows him to remain a weapon no matter the score and pace of play. He will be a must-start RB1 when the Chiefs face the Denver Broncos in Week 8.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 10/19/17 9:47pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 25-for-36 for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's Week 7 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: After scuffling a bit against the Steelers, Smith bounced back by topping the 300-yard passing mark for the third time this season -- for comparison, he surpassed that number just once all of last year. Smith also passed for multiple scores for the fourth time and has yet to throw an interception this season. The veteran continues to play the best ball of his career and is a must start for fantasy owners.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/19/17 10:21pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill had six receptions, 125 receiving yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Hill shook off a few quiet outings in a row to torch the Raiders for a 64-yard touchdown as part of a 125-yard evening in Oakland. While he's not a surefire producer week in and week out, Hill's upside should keep him in your lineup as a WR2.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/19/17 10:13pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt carried the ball 18 times for 87 yards against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Oct. 19. He added four receptions for 30 yards.
Huddle Up: Make it seven straight of more than 100 total yards for Hunt, who continues to make big plays and move piles. The only asterisk to Hunt's unbelievable rookie campaign is the ongoing touchdown drought; he hasn't scored since Week 3 after scoring six times in his first three games. He'll get a nice break to recharge his batteries as the Chiefs don't play until Oct. 30 against the Broncos.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 10/19/17 10:28pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had four catches for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7.
Huddle Up: It was the second straight game of less than 40 yards receiving for Kelce, but at least he managed to supplement his production with a touchdown this time. Next up is the Broncos, a team Kelce dominated to the tune of 19 receptions, 261 yards and a score in two games last season. Keep him plugged in as your starting TE.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/18/17 10:14am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (neck) is expected to play in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Hill is practicing in full this week after it was initially feared he may have suffered a concussion in the Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but those fears were quickly quieted. With the Chiefs down a few receivers - Chris Conley is done for the season and Albert Wilson (knee) has been ruled out for this game already - a favorable matchup on Thursday Night Football may be just what Hill needs to get rolling again. He's a high-upside WR2.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/18/17 1:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) will be active Thursday, Oct. 19, versus the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: The rookie phenom has been matchup-proof through the first several weeks of his first professional season. He won't have to worry about Charcandrick West stealing touchdowns this week either as West will not be active. Start Hunt as a high-end RB1 per usual.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/17/17 2:25pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Hunt has been on fire in his inaugural professional season. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders have been one of the league's worst defenses against running backs. Start Hunt as you normally would even on a short week.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/17/17 2:31pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (neck) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: The Oakland Raiders have defended the wide receiver position well in 2017. Hill, however, is a difference maker and a playmaker that can succeed versus any team despite a recent cold streak. Starting him as a WR2 or flex would be ideal.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 10/17/17 8:30pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has completed 63 percent of his passes and boasts a 19:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 10 career games against the Oakland Raiders. Since joining the Chiefs, Smith has played in 67 games; in seven of them he finished with better than a 9.89 yards per attempt average, four of which have come versus Oakland.
Huddle Up: Smith has been throwing downfield more often and with more success than ever in 2017. The Raiders really haven't made too many strides when it comes to stopping quarterbacks from last year, so start Smith with confidence for Thursday Night Football this week.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 10/16/17 7:47pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Hunt was a bit humbled for the first time in his rookie campaign on Sunday, being held to just 21 yards on the ground on nine carries, but he still managed to salvage his day with five catches for 89 yards through the air. He'll be out there on Thursday night and as usual, he can be fired up as a trusty RB1.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/16/17 8:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (neck) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: This is good news for Hill, who was thought to have suffered a concussion towards the end of Sunday's contest, but after being checked out, it turns out he did not. At the same time, he might be a bit of a risky start if he's not 100 percent, considering he's coming off a game that saw him register his lowest receiving yards (34) of the season. As of now, though, he's still a WR3.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 10/15/17 3:29pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West left the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second half and he is being evaluated for concussion.
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if and when the third-down back will be able to return. To make matters worse for West's fantasy owners, somehow the helmet-to-helmet hit was not flagged.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 10/15/17 7:11pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce racked up four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: The yardage total was Kelce's second-lowest mark of the season, and he has now failed to score touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time. He'll get a chance to redeem himself to fantasy owners in Week 7 in a short week against the Raiders on Thursday night.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 10/15/17 7:11pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (head) left the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers after a shot to the head, but the team determined he does not have a concussion, a source said Sunday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: With Hill apparently checking out OK, he is in line to be ready for Thursday's game with the Oakland Raiders. Start him in fantasy leagues as you normally would, and the Chiefs DST also maintains its value as long as he is available, too.
