Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/17/18 6:48pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed eight of his 12 passes for 138 yards, a touchdown and an interception and rushed twice for eight yards against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Mahomes showed off his big arm and his athleticism, dangling his upside in front of fantasy owners. Surrounded by weapons, Mahomes has tons of upside as a QB2.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 8/17/18 6:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught four passes for 87 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown, against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Hill already possessed elite speed, and he could take advantage of Patrick Mahomes' arm to produce even more big plays this year. Hill is a WR2 in all formats.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/14/18 11:43am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and the first-team offense will play the whole first half in Week 2 of the preseason, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Mahomes will be given meaningful playing time for the first time since Week 17 of last season. He'll need it, too, to shake off rust and develop more fluidity with his supporting cast. His dual-threat ability gives him high-end QB2 appeal.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/6/18 10:11am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hip) left practice early Monday, Aug. 6, because of a hip injury.
Huddle Up: The severity of Watkins' injury is not known at this point, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. He has dealt with injuries in the past but is a solid fantasy option when healthy. Watkins is expected to be one of the top options in the Chiefs passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 8/4/18 1:48pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) missed another practice Saturday, Aug. 4, due to concussion.
Huddle Up: West is reportedly on the bubble for a roster spot, so this missing time certainly isn't helping his cause. Even if he were to make the team's roster he would have very limited fantasy appeal unless injuries at the position opened up a more prominent role.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/1/18 11:28am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes made a handful of miscues in practice again Wednesday, Aug. 1, and he now has seven interceptions through six camp practices. 'He had a few hiccups today,' offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. 'But that's a part of the process. When you're young you need those hiccups because they become valuable lessons.'
Huddle Up: All indications are that Mahomes is also making plenty of big plays, too. He is trying to break the stigma that Texas Tech quarterbacks are system guys, and Red Raiders cannot play at the next level. It's something Zebbie Lethridge, Kliff Kingsbury, B.J. Symons, Graham Harrell, Sonny Cumbie, Seth Doege and, to this point, Davis Webb haven't been able to shake. The last effective NFL QB from Texas Tech dates back to Billy Joe Tolliver in the late 80's. Mahomes looks to have plenty of upside, but he remains a high-risk, high-reward QB2 in redraft leagues for now.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 8/1/18 6:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: Hunt was limited for several practices because of a hamstring injury but should be fine moving forward. He was one of the better running backs in the league in 2017 and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Chiefs. He likely will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 7/29/18 5:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) has been diagnosed with a concussion and did not participate in practice Sunday, July 29. West left practice early Saturday, July 28, after taking a blow to the head.
Huddle Up: West will miss some practice time because of the injury, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He may serve as the No. 2 running back for the Chiefs this season but will not receive a lot of playing time. He probably should only be considered a handcuff to Kareem Hunt.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 7/28/18 11:23am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) was limited to individual drills during practice Saturday, July 28. Head coach Andy Reid said the team is easing Hunt back into practice because he does not want Hunt to suffer a setback.
Huddle Up: It is not known how long Hunt will be limited, but he has plenty of time to recover before the start of the season. He is coming off a fantastic rookie season and will continue to be one of the better running backs in the NFL. He likely will be off the board early during fantasy drafts.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 7/27/18 5:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) has been limited during the early part of training camp because the team is easing him back into practice.
Huddle Up: Hunt probably will be a full participant in practice later in camp but will be fine for the start of the season. He was one of the top running backs in the league last season and will continue to receive a lot of touches. He should be a No. 1 fantasy back in all leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 7/27/18 8:29pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins was praised for his work ethic by head coach Andy Reid, and QB Patrick Mahomes said it has been easy to develop chemistry with Watkins.
Huddle Up: Watkins hasn't lived up to his potential, but his big-play ability and Mahomes' huge arm are an intriguing combination. Watkins offers a ton of upside as a WR3.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 6/30/18 9:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is a 'complete player,' according to free-agent LB Tamba Hali (Chiefs). 'He can throw the ball,' Hali said. 'Athletically, he's gifted. You don't have to coach it. In practice, I'd watch him just look guys off.'
Huddle Up: Mahomes is a high-risk, high-reward QB2 in redraft leagues, but he has the physical tools, the coaching staff and weapons around him to be an impact fantasy option sooner rather than later.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/26/18 11:45pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins has been learning all of the team's receiver positions during the offseason, which will allow him to line up all over the field. Watkins says head coach Andy Reid has been helping him become a better player by making him learn the entire route tree.
Huddle Up: It's tempting to think Watkins might finally deliver on his full potential, but barring injury he is, at best, the No. 3 option in passing game behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. While his apparent development in KC is encouraging, Watkins shouldn't be selected as more than a WR3.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 6/24/18 6:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) has been limited to individual drills during spring practices, according to head coach Andy Reid, but Reid expects Ware to be ready in the coming weeks.
Huddle Up: Kareem Hunt is now the workhorse in the Kansas City backfield, making Ware no more than a handcuff for Hunt's fantasy owners.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/14/18 10:16am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and WR Sammy Watkins already appear to have a good rapport. Their connection has been a 'consistent sight' throughout the offseason program. WR Chris Conley said Watkins has been picking up the offense quickly and CB Steve Nelson added that Watkins has been putting in more time to work out.
Huddle Up: Drafting Watkins to your fantasy squad is a tempting but difficult affair. He did score a career-high eight times last season, but only caught 39 passes for 593 yards. The upside is apparent and Watkins has the ability to achieve WR2 numbers, but it would behoove fantasy gamers to select him as a WR3.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 6/14/18 10:48am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) will be fine for the start of training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid. He has missed a large portion of the offseason program with a hamstring issue.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs will likely take a cautious approach with their starting running back in training camp and the preseason. There's no reason to risk aggravation with such a valuable player. Assuming he stays healthy, Hunt is a late-first to early-second round draft consideration.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 6/7/18 11:29am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (ankle) did not practice Thursday, June 7, after twisting his ankle.
Huddle Up: No biggie. Hill should be back at practice this week if the injury is as minor as it sounds. He's a WR1 option in both PPR and standard leagues.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 5/31/18 1:05pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 31, because of a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs likely will be cautious with Hunt, so he may not do much until training camp in July. He was one of the top running backs in the NFL as a rookie in 2017 and should have a similar workload this upcoming season. Hunt should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 5/29/18 7:16am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt said he is working on catching the ball and running more routes in organized team activities.
Huddle Up: Hunt emerged as one of the top running backs in fantasy last season, and he'll be an option early in the first round.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 5/25/18 6:56pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) did not participate in OTAs Thursday, May 24.
Huddle Up: Ware is expected to be ready for training camp, but he has taken a backseat to Kareem Hunt in the offense. He is no more than a late-round handcuff to Hunt at this point.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 5/25/18 7:21pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' struggles during OTAs are nothing to be worried about, according to head coach Andy Reid. 'We throw in a lot of new stuff so you want to test what you can get away with in these camps, so you're going to have interceptions,' Reid said. 'That doesn't bother me.'
Huddle Up: Mahomes is unproven as he enters his first season as the starter, but he has a big arm and plenty of weapons around him. He will be a high-risk, high-reward QB2.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/25/18 9:04pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins made multiple one-handed catches during OTAs Thursday, May 24.
Huddle Up: His upside and athleticism have never been questioned, but staying healthy has been an issue. Patrick Mahomes is an unknown at the quarterback spot, but Watkins could be worth the gamble as a WR3.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/17/18 7:58pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson's rapport with QB Patrick Mahomes and the presence of WR Tyreek Hill and WR Sammy Watkins on the outside should allow him to exploit defenses underneath this season, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Kansas City suddenly has a crowded receiving corps, but if Mahomes excels, Robinson could be a nice depth option for fantasy owners in PPR formats.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 4/16/18 11:20am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware's (knee) availability for the offseason workouts is uncertain, but he should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Ware likely will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Chiefs this upcoming season if he is healthy but would only see a handful of touches each game. He could be a late-round option in draft next season as a possible handcuff to Kareem Hunt.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 3/27/18 1:39pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will be working on improving his route running this offseason, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Hill likely will continue to be the No. 1 receiver for the Chiefs and will be a big-play threat with Patrick Mahomes taking over as the starting quarterback. Hill should be considered a No. 2 receiver in all leagues in 2018.
Chad Henne - QBPosted 3/18/18 8:02pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Chad Henne said he is ready to embrace a 'mentor role' and help QB Patrick Mahomes.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is unproven, but he will have plenty of weapons to throw to as he begins his first year as a starter. He will be an upside-QB2 in 2018.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 3/16/18 8:55pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins 'hasn't been used correctly as a pro,' according to an AFC scout. 'If he gets enough touches each game, he can be a difference-maker,' the scout said.
Huddle Up: To be fair, injuries haven't helped his production either, but playing alongside Tyreek Hill, Watkins has tons of upside as a WR3.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 3/13/18 6:44am ET
Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Albert Wilson agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal with the Miami Dolphins Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Wilson hasn't done much for fantasy owners to take heed to, but he could end up being the Dolphins' starting slot receiver. Keep him in mind for a WR5 flyer.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 2/28/18 8:52pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, Feb. 28, that 'we probably need to expand on' RB Kareem Hunt's role in the passing game for next season.
Huddle Up: Hunt is pretty much already locked in as an RB1 going into his second NFL campaign, but an increased presence in the club's air attack would only boost his stock even further. He was already a regular part of the passing game, drawing four targets per game in 2017, but it appears there's going to be even more work for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year runner-up, who also rushed for 1,327 yards and eight scores this past year.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 2/19/18 8:10pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt led the NFL - among players who recorded at least 175 carries - with 4.63 yards gained after defenders closed within one yard of him in 2017, according to Next Gen Stats.
Huddle Up: This should come as no surprise to any of his owners, as Hunt routinely used exceptional balance and power to keep his feet after he got past the first level of defenders. Spencer Ware's return in 2018 could make a repeat of his league-leading rushing campaign unlikely, but Hunt has all the makings of being the next great Andy Reid running back.
