Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 2/12/19 3:18pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt could be suspended up to 10 or 12 games as a result of the domestiv violence incident he was involved in last year, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: The Browns, of course, knew this before signing him, but they took a chance on Hunt with a one-year deal anyway. As for Hunt's fantasy value, it is greatly hindered by the presence of Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and his impending suspension. As of now he is merely worth a waiver wire add in dynasty leagues if available.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 2/11/19 11:00am ET
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt signed a one-year contract that is for more than the league minimum and could be worth more than $1 million with the Cleveland Browns on Monday, Feb. 11.
Huddle Up: This move isn't a surprise given the fact current Cleveland general manager John Dorsey was one of the people responsible for drafting Ohio native Hunt when he was still employed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, but just about everything else about this move is shocking. The league still has yet to announce how long Hunt will be suspended for his off-field issues, plus rookie Nick Chubb quickly emerged as one of the league's best backs near the end of the season. Hunt figures to serve a suspension for the better part of the 2019 season, but Hunt's arrival could damage Chubb's dynasty stock if he hangs around in Cleveland past this year.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 2/7/19 10:33am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has been banned by the team from playing basketball after general manager Brett Veach saw a recent online video of Mahomes playing in a pick-up hoops game. 'As soon as I saw (video of Mahomes playing basketball), it probably took me about two seconds to call his agent and tell him that was a big no-no,' Veach said Thursday during an interview on Kansas City radio station WHB 810 AM. 'The (Chiefs') Kingdom can rest assured that we have that under control: No more basketball for Pat.'
Huddle Up: Mahomes' dynasty owners have Veach's back after Mahomes earned league MVP honors in his second season and finished with 74 more fantasy points than any other player.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 2/7/19 3:39pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is eligible to sign a contract extension this offseason, and general manager Brett Veach said he expects to have conversations with Hill's agent over the next several weeks.
Huddle Up: Hill has played well since joining the team three years ago and has posted at least 1,100 yards in each of the last two games. He is one of the top receivers in the NFL and likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds in all fantasy leagues.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 2/2/19 4:24pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was announced as the 2019 NFL's Most Valuable Player Saturday, Feb. 2.
Huddle Up: There was no doubt that Mahomes was deserving of the honor after throwing for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. Quarterbacks aren't traditionally selected in the first round of fantasy drafts, but Mahomes would be the exception if one were to use that strategy.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/30/19 1:15pm ET
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt's (Chiefs) ongoing investigation by the NFL will be finished soon, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Hunt is able to sign with a team, but he would not be able to play as long as he's on the commissioner's exempt list.
Huddle Up: Hunt's dynasty fantasy value isn't completely eradicated, but he's a non-factor right now in redraft leagues. If/when he does sign with someone, he'll have RB1 upside.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/29/19 3:08pm ET
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) could be of interest to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: As Rapoport stated, ultimately the decision to pursue and/or sign Hunt will be up to the team owners. As long as he remains a free agent, Hunt has no value in traditional leagues.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/28/19 10:47am ET
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt is unlikely to be of interest to the New York Jets, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Huddle Up: Hunt would be an obvious upgrade on Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire, but Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has been impacted by the effects of domestic violence - a family friend was killed - so it is understandable why New York will go in a different direction.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/28/19 3:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce can become just the third tight end in NFL history to achieve four straight seasons of at least 80 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards. Former NFL TEs Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten are the other two.
Huddle Up: Kelce has quickly supplanted Rob Gronkowski as the most valuable - and consistent - tight end in fantasy football. Patrick Mahomes only adds to Kelce's allure. He has to be the first tight end taken in 2019 fantasy drafts.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/23/19 10:43pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles could be a landing spot for former Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, in the opinion of Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, who believes the team may be willing to move past Hunt's off-the-field incident based on their previous interest in Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon when he was coming out of Oklahoma -- Mixon was also recorded striking a woman.
Huddle Up: On the field, signing Hunt makes all the sense in the world for a team that lacked explosiveness in the backfield, especially once Jay Ajayi went down. The question is whether or not the Eagles believe pursuing Hunt would be worth the inevitable PR hit. Someone is going to sign Hunt, and Philadelphia could be one of the more appealing destinations in terms of fantasy value.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/20/19 6:12am ET
Although there is no official deadline, multiple sources believe that the National Football League will wrap up their investigations into three incidents involving free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) before the start of free agency in March.
Huddle Up: Hunt has yet to speak with league investigators, which is expected to be the final step of the process before any potential disciplinary action is taken. Multiple teams have done research on Hunt and contacted him in the hopes that he will be eligible to resume playing at some point during the 2019 season. From a fantasy standpoint, he is worth hanging on to in dynasty leagues and deep keeper formats.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/20/19 7:42am ET
The Kansas City Chiefs will attempt to work out a contract extension with WR Tyreek Hill during the offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: The 24-year-old Hill has become the focal point of the Kansas City offense and has been highly effective despite battling multiple injuries this season. He should be viewed as a WR1 in all fantasy formats.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/20/19 9:23am ET
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) is receiving interest from multiple teams and could sign with a team in the near future, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hunt likely will receive a lengthy suspension for his off-field incident but still has a chance to play in 2019. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job in free agency but has shown he can be productive when he plays. Owners will know more about his fantasy value later in the offseason.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 1/20/19 9:48am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will be able to sign a contract extension after the 2019 season and could become the first NFL player to receive a $200 million contract, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Mahomes has been one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL this season despite it being his first year as a starter. He should continue to be one of the best quarterbacks for years to come and likely will be one of the first quarterbacks selected in fantasy drafts in 2019.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/20/19 7:27pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught one of his three targets for 42 yards in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: As the Patriots often do, they took away the best offensive weapon for their opponent. It was a quiet end to the best season of Hill's career, but he looks poised to deliver WR1 numbers for the foreseeable future as the top target for Patrick Mahomes.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 1/20/19 7:23pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams rushed 10 times for 30 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 66 yards and two scores in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Williams didn't do much on the ground, but an early deficit had a lot to do with that. Still, he showcased his versatility once again, and since taking over as the starter, he has left no doubt that he can be a workhorse for the Kansas City backfield. Williams will have RB1 potential entering 2019.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 1/20/19 7:20pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 16 of his 31 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns and rushed twice for 11 yards in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Mahomes led the Chiefs back from an early deficit, but he never saw the ball overtime. His impressive season doesn't end with a Super Bowl appearance, but it will put him in the conversation to be the first quarterback selected in drafts in 2019.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/20/19 7:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins caught four of his eight targets for 114 yards in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Injuries remain a constant issue for Watkins, but he wasn't bad when he was on the field. He topped 60 yards in five of his final six games, including the playoffs, and even as the No. 3 option in the Kansas City passing attack, he will have WR3 upside in 2019.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/20/19 7:30pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught three of his five targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: It marked just the second time all year and the first time since the season opener that Kelce failed to top 40 receiving yards. His season may have ended on a sour note, but that doesn't change the fact that Kelce may be the top fantasy option at his position heading into 2019.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/19/19 11:43pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is averaging 4.1 yards per route against press coverage - best in a season by any player since 2016 (minimum 100 routes).
Huddle Up: This nugget is particularly timely because the New England Patriots play a lot of press man coverage, and it's just one of the many stats that helps to prove what most fantasy owners already know - once Hill gets behind his man, he's going to be running for a while. New England will likely make him its top priority in the AFC Championship, but the Patriots haven't had much success stopping him in their recent matchups. While he possesses a low floor this week, his ceiling is as high as any receiver's.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 1/18/19 9:07am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is one of four quarterbacks to post at least 350 passing yards, four touchdowns and a 110 passer rating in a game versus the New England Patriots since 2001. Mahomes threw for 352 yards and had four TDs with a 110.0 rating in a 43-40 loss at New England in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is at home this time, but it also means Bill Belichick and Co. will be getting their second shot at defending the likely league MVP. Expect Mahomes to put up decent numbers Sunday, but betting against Belichick and expecting another monster Mahomes game is unrealistic.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/18/19 1:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 18, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Hill is one of the focal points on offense for the Chiefs and will receive plenty of touches against the New England Patriots. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 1/18/19 1:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 18, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Ware has missed several weeks because of his injury but likely will be in uniform this week. His role in the offense is uncertain at this point, but he could still be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/18/19 1:26pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 18, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Watkins is coming off a solid performance in the Divisional Round playoff game and should see a decent amount of targets this week. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/17/19 2:38pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Watkins returned to the lineup last week and caught six passes for 62 yards. He should see a solid amount of targets this week against the New England Patriots and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/17/19 2:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, thigh) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Hill has been the team's top offensive weapon this season even though he has been dealing with injuries. He will continue to receive plenty of touches this week and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 1/17/19 2:13pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Ware appears to have a good chance to play against the New England Patriots, but owners will need to monitor the situation. He will be a risky fantasy option if he plays but can still be at least a flex option.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 1/16/19 2:44pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) put in a limited practice Wednesday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Ware's lack of good health has paved the way for Damien Williams to break out in Kansas City's backfield. Even if Ware is healthy enough to play, he won't see the same workload he did at the end of the regular season.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/16/19 2:40pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Watkins surprised many last week as he tallied six catches for 62 in his return. He can't be relied on for consistent production, but he's a decent flex consideration for those in DFS contests.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/16/19 2:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (thigh, heel) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Hill is the key weapon for the Chiefs this weekend. He torched the New England Patriots for seven catches, 142 yards and three touchdowns when they played in the regular season. Weather will be a bigger factor this time around, but Hill will still be factored heavily into the game plan.
