Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/16/18 2:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) will not participate in the Pro Bowl due to a concussion he suffered in the playoffs. Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has been named as Kelce's replacement.
Huddle Up: No surprise. Teams don't want their star players risking aggravation in a game that doesn't count for anything. Kelce has a concussion history, too, which makes the absence even more logical. He remains a candidate to be one of the first three tight ends selected in 2018 fantasy drafts.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 1/9/18 6:18am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith could be an option for the Cleveland Browns after the Browns hired general manager John Dorsey, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe. Dorsey was the Chiefs' general manager when he acquired Smith from the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Smith was one of the best quarterbacks in fantasy through the first four weeks of 2017, but he was inconsistent the rest of the way. He finished as a midrange QB1, and that might not be attainable with a different roster. There are options in that low-end QB1/high-end QB2 range with more upside.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/7/18 7:31pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) 'probably would have been alright' for a playoff game this coming weekend had the Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans, head coach Andy Reid said Sunday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Kelce turned in his second straight 1,000-yard campaign in 2017, and he has topped 800 yards in all four of his seasons in the league. He is no worse than the No. 2 fantasy tight end heading into 2018.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 1/6/18 9:12am ET
The Kansas City Chiefs will not actively seek out trade partners for QB Alex Smith this offseason, but they will listen, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who speculated the one thing that may cause 'all sides to pull back' is if the Chiefs make a run to the Super Bowl.
Huddle Up: Kansas City drafted its quarterback of the future last spring in Patrick Mahomes, who has consistently turned heads in practice and left another positive impression by going 22-of-35 for 284 yards with an interception against the Denver Broncos in his first career start in Week 17. If Smith is put on the market, there will be no shortage of suitors, with former Chiefs boss John Dorsey - now with the Cleveland Browns - at the top of the list.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 1/6/18 12:16pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Wilson posted some solid performances during the regular season and should have a decent role in the passing game against the Titans. He can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/6/18 3:10pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (head) left the Wild Card game early after taking a hit to the head and was taken to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Kelce will go through the concussion protocol and will not return to the game if he is diagnosed with a concussion. Owners will need to monitor the situation because Kelce would be questionable if the team advances to the Divisional Round.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/6/18 3:32pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Wild Card playoff game and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
Huddle Up: Kelce will need to pass the concussion tests before he is allowed to play again, so he will be considered questionable if the team advances in the playoffs. Owners will need to monitor Kelce's situation next week if the Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 1/6/18 5:14pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 24-for-33 for 264 yards and two touchdowns in a Wild Card loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Smith did all he could to keep the Chiefs from surrendering a 19-point halftime lead. In the end Smith completed about three-fourths of his passes with no glaring mistakes. Look to see where Smith ends up in 2018. Right now he's a lower-end QB1 but that could change if Smith goes to a team with fewer offensive weapons.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 1/6/18 5:31pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught seven of his 11 targeted passes for 87 yards in a 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He also ran one time for 14 yards.
Huddle Up: Hill remains a dominant WR1 option for most fantasy owners, but if Alex Smith leaves Kansas City via trade then his rating could take a hit. It all depends on how well Hill would mesh with Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs' QB-in-waiting.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 1/6/18 5:24pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 11 times for 42 yards and scored a touchdown in his team's 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Wild Card action.
Huddle Up: Hunt rebounded in the second half of the season after a hot start and cool middle of the year. He remains Kansas City's No. 1 running option heading into 2018 and a low RB1 or high-end RB2 in most leagues.
Demarcus Robinson - WRPosted 1/6/18 5:56pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in a 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Robinson could climb the ladder from WR2 if Patrick Mahomes becomes Kansas City's quarterback, so stay tuned. Mahomes and Robinson developed strong chemistry.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 1/6/18 5:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) caught all four of his targeted passes for 66 yards and a touchdown during the Wild Card game Saturday, Jan. 6, against the Tennessee Titans. Kelce would leave the game and enter concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Kelce remains one of Kansas City's top offensive weapons, but keep an eye on the QB situation. It will take some time for Kelce to warm up to a new signal-caller if there is one. Still, pencil Kelce in as a TE1 for the offseason.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 1/4/18 1:42pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 4, but is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Wilson appears to be on track to play against the Tennessee Titans, but owners should check the inactive list for his official status. He should receive a decent amount of targets during the game and could be a flex option for owners.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 1/3/18 4:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Wilson is coming off an outstanding Week 17 performance when he posted 10 receptions and 147 yards. He has been targeted 19 times in the last two games and should have a decent role in the passing game. He could be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.
Demarcus Robinson - WRPosted 12/30/17 7:43pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson is expected to see 'plenty of action' against the Denver Broncos in Week 17, according to Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star.
Huddle Up: With Kansas City resting many of its starters, Robinson will have a chance to show to make an impact. He could be a DFS Hail Mary, but keep in mind that rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes is starting, and Denver's secondary presents a tough matchup.
De'Anthony Thomas - WRPosted 12/30/17 8:25pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR De'Anthony Thomas is expected to have a big role against the Denver Broncos in Week 17.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs are resting several starters, so Thomas should see plenty of snaps. Patrick Mahomes' big arm and Thomas' big-play speed could hook up for a long play, but Thomas is still no more than a DFS dart throw.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 12/29/17 2:00pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs are holding Hill out of the Week 17 game to make sure he will be ready for playoffs. Albert Wilson could receive more targets during the game but is not a strong fantasy option.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 12/28/17 9:41am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: The team could hold Kareem Hunt out for Week 17, and West would be a highlighted one-week play against the Denver Broncos.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 12/27/17 9:59am ET
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced QB Patrick Mahomes will make his first career start in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It's a smart move by the Chiefs, who are locked into the fourth seed in the AFC and have nothing to gain by rolling out Alex Smith. The rookie is blessed with the rocket arm and has drawn both good and bad comparisons to Brett Favre, but he's in for a tough first start against a revitalized Denver defense. He's a QB2 at best in Week 17.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 12/25/17 2:10pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is just the 10th running back in NFL history to achieve at least 1,000 rushing yards, 400 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns in his first season. He's the first rookie running back to accomplish the feat since Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin in 2012.
Huddle Up: Hunt started off hot and cooled down a little bit, but his rookie campaign can't go unnoticed. He's in RB1 territory heading into 2018 with added value in PPR leagues. As long as he's healthy he can be drafted in the first round of fantasy drafts.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson posted three grabs for 36 yards on a team-high tying eight targets in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Wilson has three or more receptions in four of his past five games and he was targeted five or more times in four of the final five outings. He was a nice tertiary option in the Kansas City pass attack, but his fantasy appeal has still been rather minimal.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 12/24/17 5:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finished with four receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown on a team-high tying eight targets in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Kelce extended his streak with at least three receptions to 12 straight outings. He might be the best fantasy option at the tight end position not named Rob Gronkowski.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 12/24/17 5:33pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill went for six receptions and 109 yards on seven targets in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Hill has posted at least four receptions in each of his past six outings while posting 75 or more yards in each of his past four games. He has emerged as a legitimate WR1 in PPR leagues down the stretch, while serving as a WR2 in most standard formats.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 12/24/17 5:33pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 29 times for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Miami Dolphins and he added four grabs for 15 yards on his four targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt hit the rookie wall, coinciding with the team's slide during the middle of the season. He has caught a second wind, running 78 times for 360 yards and at least one touchdown in each of the past three games while posting 14 runs for 88 yards and another score. He has been a big reason why a lot of people will win championship money or trophies this week.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 12/24/17 5:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 25 of his 39 pass attempts for 304 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins and he also ran four times for 13 yards.
Huddle Up: Smith and the Chiefs hit a bump in the road midway through the season, losing six of seven game. The QB turned it over four times from Nov. 5-26, but he has righted the ship and the Chiefs are going well again with three straight wins. He posted his fifth 300-yard game of the season for fantasy owners who stuck with him in the championship game.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 12/22/17 4:28pm ET
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 22, but is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Kelce should be active for Week 16 as long as he can recover from his illness. He is one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be starting in all fantasy leagues.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 12/21/17 1:44pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (illness) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Assuming the illness isn't too serious, Kelce should be good to go this weekend. He's arguably the No. 1 tight end not named Rob Gronkowski in Week 16 in a great matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
Albert Wilson - WRPosted 12/20/17 5:51pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring, shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Wilson was targeted only two times in the last game and has posted 40 yards or less in four of the last five games. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 12/16/17 8:56pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 24 times for 155 yards and a touchdown and caught seven passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Saturday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Hunt busted out of his slump with a 100-yard effort in Week 14, and he kept the momentum going. It seems like Kansas City has remembered that feeding Hunt results in good things for the offense, and he is back to his RB1 ways at the perfect time for fantasy owners.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 12/16/17 9:08pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 88 yards, including a 64-yard touchdown, in a 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Saturday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Hill has delivered at least 75 receiving yards in three straight games, and while he can be boom or bust at times, his WR1 upside makes him a must-start option.
