Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) is expected to be ready for training camp and could be ready for mandatory mini camp, according to general manager Brett Veach. The surgery had a three-month recovery.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is arguably the best quarterback in fantasy, but the gap has narrowed with the amount of dual-threat options.

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins has interest from the Chiefs in re-signing him. 'Sammy is a big part of this offense and when he's healthy, we're better,' general manager Brett Veach said. 'If there's a way we can make it work again, we'll certainly try to do that. Love having him around.'
Huddle Up: Watkins has been extremely brittle, but he could be a PPR WR4 if he's back with KC.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman's role could expand in 2021 with WRs Demarcus Robinson and Sammy Watkins potential unrestricted free agents. He was targeted six times in the Super Bowl, but he only caught two of the passes for four yards.
Huddle Up: KC is interesting in keeping Watkins, but he has proven to be extremely brittle. Hardman looks like a WR5 flyer right now, but that could enhance if his role does.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (foot) will undergo surgery Wednesday, Feb. 10, on a torn plantar plate in his foot, which is also known as turf toe. He will likely be idle most of the offseason to recover.
Huddle Up: Mahomes will still likely be the top quarterback option in fantasy again next season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was charged with 13 drops in 2020 - the second-highest total in the league - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Four of the drops came during the Chiefs' three-game postseason run, but it was merely a continuation of a problem that started in December. Beginning in Week 13 and extending through the Super Bowl, the speedster committed nine of his drops. It's not a huge issue considering his game-breaking talent and his quarterback, but it is something he needs to rectify moving forward. Consider him a lock to be drafted among the top five receivers again in 2021 drafts.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 26 of his 49 pass attempts for 270 yards and two interceptions and rushed five times for 33 yards in a 31-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed nine times for 64 yards and caught two passes for 23 yards, WR Tyreek Hill caught seven of his 10 targets for 73 yards, and TE Travis Kelce caught 10 of his 15 targets for a game-high 133 yards.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) is expected to see a foot specialist after Super Bowl LV and will likely need to undergo surgery because of turf toe, according to multiple sources. The injury is considered significant enough that it won't heal on its own.
Huddle Up: Despite the injury, Mahomes will start Super Bowl LV and should still be viewed as the higher-upside quarterback option between himself and Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady for postseason fantasy games.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) is expected to play in Super Bowl LV, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Watkins will be making his first appearance of these playoffs, but he is an intriguing sleeper in Super Bowl fantasy contests. He has 24 catches for 464 yards in five postseason games with the Chiefs over the past two seasons, topping 60 yards in all of them.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 5, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LV.
Huddle Up: Bell should receive a handful of touches in the running and passing game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 5, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LV.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire did not have much success during the AFC Championship game but should continue to be the main running back for the Chiefs. He can be a starting option in most leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 5, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LV.
Huddle Up: Mahomes appears to have recovered from the toe injury he suffered a few weeks ago and has played well in the postseason. He is a must-start option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) was a full participant in practice Friday, Feb. 5, and is listed as questionable for Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
Huddle Up: Watkins was able to put in his first full practice in awhile -- another strong sign that he will indeed play Sunday for the first time since Week 16 of the regular season. Of course we're likely going to have to wait until the official inactives list is posted Sunday, but it's not looking like Watkins will be on that list.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: With Clyde Edwards-Helaire back from injury and Darrel Williams moving up the depth chart in the last month, Bell is a strong candidate to be a healthy scratch for Super Bowl LV since teams usually don't make room for third-string running backs who don't play on special teams.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) practiced in full Thursday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: Mahomes wore a special orthotic in the AFC Championship and didn't appear to be limited in any way. With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fielding an elite run defense, it will be almost entirely on his shoulders to pass the Chiefs to victory in Super Bowl LV. It should come as no surprise if he attempts 50-plus passes in this game, and he has to be the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP for a second straight year if Kansas City defends its title.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) practiced in full Thursday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: It's a virtual certainty CEH will play on Sunday barring a setback. The biggest question at this point is whether or not practicing in full since last Thursday has narrowed the gap between him and Darrel Williams in terms of the backfield workload. Edwards-Helaire was ineffective in his first action since Week 15 during the AFC Championship, and it doesn't figure to get much better against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' elite run defense.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson remains on the Reserve/COVID-19 list as a close contact but continued to test negative for the virus Thursday, Feb. 4, and could rejoin the team as soon as Friday with another negative test.
Huddle Up: Robinson was the Chiefs' third-leading receiver during the regular season with 45 catches for 466 yards and three TDs and would almost certainly figure into the Big Game mix if activated.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire comes into Super Bowl LV off a quiet second-half of his rookie season. He returned to the lineup in the AFC Championship against the Buffalo Bills and found the end zone on one of his six carries. He's a bit of an X-factor for the Big Game, but he has a very high ceiling and is a more appealing fantasy option than veteran Darrel Williams.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Huddle Up: Mahomes will play in Sunday's Super Bowl LV. He'll be the safer and higher-upside QB option between himself and Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady, regardless of the format you're playing.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Feb. 3.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) was officially limited during practice Wednesday, Feb. 3.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes led the league with 951 passing yards on the run - defined as the player running at least eight miles per hour at the time of throw, according to Next Gen Stats. During the regular season, Mahomes ranked first or second in completions (76) and passing touchdowns (13) on such throws.
Huddle Up: For what it's worth, Mahomes is 7-for-11 for 86 yards on such throws during this postseason. It's just another way to say something most NFL fans already know: this kid is good at just about everything on the football field. He should be the first or second quarterback off the board when fantasy drafts resume this spring.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes led all NFL passers with a minimum of 75 attempts this season in passer rating and yards per attempt vs. the blitz, according to Stathead. He had 12 touchdowns and zero interceptions when facing the blitz.
Huddle Up: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were ranked fifth in blitz rate this season, so Mahomes will face plenty of pressure in Super Bowl LV. He was sacked just twice for six yards and threw for 462 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 12 meeting with the Bucs. He'll be the top fantasy option in any format you're playing on Super Bowl Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 29, and is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Super Bowl LV.
Huddle Up: It's very likely Bell is inactive for the big game next weekend since teams don't have much use for third-string running backs who do not contribute on special teams. Although Clyde Edwards-Helaire wasn't great in his return last week, he will remain the clear starter. Darrel Williams has played well over the last month and could see more work than the rookie yet again. In other words, there's just not much reason to burn a roster spot on Bell.
