Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 4/11/19 9:46am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes came through with a big-time throw on an NFL-best 12.97 percent of his attempts under pressure last season.
Huddle Up: Even if Mahomes suffers a bit of a sophomore slump (in what technically will be his third season) he still should finish among the top-five fantasy QBs after totaling 74 more fantasy points than any other QB in 2018.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 4/7/19 7:31am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is likely to remain the starter in 2019 even after RB Kareem Hunt is eligible to return from his eight-game suspension, in the opinion of beat writer Scott Petrak. Chubb earned the team's trust with a strong rookie year, but Hunt could be the starter in 2020.
Huddle Up: Chubb will be an RB2 for the bulk of the fantasy season, and Hunt will need time to acclimate himself in the offense and kick rust off. It could be Week 10 before Hunt makes a considerable dent in Chubb's fantasy stock. Hunt is worth stashing as an RB5, but Chubb seems to be safe atop the pecking order.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 3/18/19 7:41am ET
Free-agent RB Spencer Ware (Chiefs) is visiting the Detroit Lions Monday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Ware can still be an RB4 if he lands in the right timeshare to run between the tackles.
Chris Conley - WRPosted 3/16/19 7:55am ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent WR Chris Conley (Chiefs) Saturday, March 16, according to a source. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: The 26-year-old Conley had 32 receptions for 334 yards and five touchdowns for Kansas City last season. He will be battling the likes of Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee in Jacksonville for targets and should be viewed as a possible late-round flier in deeper fantasy football leagues.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 3/15/19 7:07am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt was suspended eight games Friday, March 15, for violating the personal conduct policy, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hunt can still appeal the ruling, but he's gone for 75 percent of the fantasy season in a lot of leagues. You're really going to have to be lucky avoiding the injury bug if you're going to carry him as an RB5 all season. There is obvious risk of rust and obvious reward for the latter part of the season and playoffs. Nick Chubb will be an RB2 or RB3 in Hunt's stead.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 3/15/19 3:05pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is the subject of a battery investigation involving a juvenile, USA TODAY Sports has confirmed. The alleged incident was reported Thursday, March 14, to Overland Park (Kan.) Police Department, but it is unclear when the alleged incident took place. The Chiefs issued a statement acknowledging the investigation, noting the team has been in communication with the associated authorities. Hill has not been charged with any crime. The Athletic reported the address listed on the police report is Hill's residence, and The Kansas City Star reported the alleged incident involved Hill's son.
Huddle Up: Stay tuned. This could amount to nothing, or it may be a major derailment for his career. Hill was previously convicted of domestic violence in 2015, which could result in the league imposing a harsher penalty than usual, if this situation indeed proves to be true.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 3/14/19 10:24am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is likely facing a multiple-game disciplinary suspension, but Browns general manager John Dorsey said Thursday, March 14, he doesn't have any updated information on the specifics of the suspension. Dorsey did add that Hunt has been at the team's facilities and has been doing a 'great job.'
Huddle Up: Until we get clarity on the length of Hunt's ban, he'll be a late-round fantasy draft option who could pay off late next season.
Demetrius Harris - TEPosted 3/13/19 9:26pm ET
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Demetrius Harris agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal that includes $3.25 million in guaranteed money, a source said Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: David Njoku will be the starter, but Harris gives them a nice look in two-TE sets for their red-zone offense. He posted a career-high three touchdowns last season in 15 games with the Kansas City Chiefs. He'll likely only have fantasy appeal if Njoku goes down with a long-term injury.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 3/5/19 11:10am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has begun contract extension talks with the Chiefs on what is expected to be a record-breaking deal, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hill has been one of the best receivers since entering the league and has posted 3,255 yards and 25 touchdowns in three seasons. He should continue to be one of the most valuable fantasy receivers and likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 3/4/19 5:04pm ET
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is expected to be suspended for his off-field issues, but NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said there is no timetable for a decision.
Huddle Up: Hunt is expected to receive a lengthy suspension, but the team will have Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson to play at the position while Hunt is out. He is will be a risky option in fantasy leagues next season but could help during the second half of the season.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 3/2/19 9:14am ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) recently underwent ankle surgery and will miss at least some of the offseason workouts, according to sources. Kelce is expected to be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Kelce is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and does not appear to be in any danger of missing the start of the regular season. He likely will be the first or second tight end selected in all fantasy drafts next season.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 2/28/19 9:17am ET
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt's addition was helped by general manager John Dorsey's 2016 experience in Kansas City in deciding whether to draft WR Tyreek Hill in 2016. When you make a decision of that magnitude, you have to have depth of knowledge,' Dorsey said Thursday, Feb. 28, at the NFL Scouting Combine. 'You have to be able to communicate what everybody sees, and then from a managing up position, you have to be able to express that with clarity to your bosses and get them to understand that this is a good person, so just trust us on this.'
Huddle Up: Signing Hunt was one thing, but having him actually able to play will be another as he remains on the Commissioner's Exempt List. That likely will be the case for a good chunk of the 2019 season.
Damien Williams - RBPosted 2/28/19 6:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams will have the first opportunity to secure the starting running back job, according to general manager Brett Veach.
Huddle Up: Williams put up strong numbers after replacing Kareem Hunt as the starter. As long as he enters 2019 as the clear No. 1 back, he should at least be able to deliver high-end RB2 numbers in such a potent offense.
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.
