Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) is officially active for the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Valdez-Scantling has not been a big factor in the passing game during the early part of the season but will see a decent amount of targets against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He could be a possible flex option in some leagues but can be benched if better options are available.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) expects to play in Week 4's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He has not had a great season statistically and can be avoided in most fantasy leagues even if he is declared active.

Kansas City Chiefs PK Matthew Wright and LB Elijah Lee were elevated from the practice squad for Week 4 on Saturday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: With Harrison Butker ruled out, Wright be the Chiefs' kicker for Week 4. Wright has a career 89.3 percent success rate on field goals and 90.9 percent success rate on extra points, so he could provide a suitable option for Butker owners.

Kansas City Chiefs PK Harrison Butker (ankle) was downgraded from questionable to out for Week 4 on Saturday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs kicker experienced a setback during the week and will miss his third straight game. Kicker Matthew Wright, who has made 89.3 percent of his field goals and 90.9 percent of his extra points during his career, will take Butker's place.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has been a reliable option for the Chiefs during the first month of the season and should see a decent amount of targets this week. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) was limited during practice Friday, Sept 30, but is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hardman has caught only seven passes in the first three games of the season and probably will not have a bigger role in Week 4. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling's status for Week 4 is unknown at this time, so fantasy players will need to monitor his status over the next few days. He is not posted great numbers this season and can be avoided in most leagues even if he plays.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) was a full participant in practice on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: That's two full practices in a row for Smith-Schuster, who is a shaky flex play for Week 4.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) did not practice on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling's participation is a downgrade from the day before when he was limited, so he's moving in the wrong direction ahead of Week 4. Regardless, Valdes-Scantling is a desperation flex play at best.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) was limited in practice on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Hardman is moving in the right direction after not practicing on Wednesday, but he isn't a viable lineup option after posting 7-67-1 over the first three games.

Kansas City Chiefs PK Harrison Butker (ankle) did not practice on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: It appears Butker has suffered a setback after he got in a limited session on Wednesday. Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub admitted Butker is "a little sore" and will be a game-time decision. If he can't go, Matthew Wright is next in line, but fantasy managers can likely find a better option on the waiver wire.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is coming off his best game of the season and has posted at least 79 yards in two of his three games. He could be at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling has been targeted 18 times in three games but has been held to under 50 yards in each of the games. He will see a handful of targets this week but may only be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Hardman is coming off a disappointing Week 3 game and has posted only 67 yards in three games. Fantasy players probably should keep him on the bench even if he is active for the game.

Kansas City Chiefs PK Harrison Butker (ankle) is set to do some work on Wednesday, Sept. 28, head coach Andy Reid said.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Butker will be full or limited so keep an eye on the injury report later in the day. Any participation would be a step in the right direction for Butker after he didn't practice at all the past two weeks before being ruled out.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has been targeted 11 times over the first two games but was held to 10 yards in the last game. He could be a flex option or can be benched if better options are available.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling is off to a cold start with his new team with only 57 yards in two games. He could be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Hardman should see a few targets this week but has been held to 65 yards in the first two games of the season. Fantasy players probably can find better options and can avoid Hardman.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) was a full participant in practice on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: We thought we might've had a beat on the Chiefs' wide receiver situation after Smith-Schuster posted six catches for 79 yards in Week 1, but he followed that up with just three catches for 10 yards in Week 2. Smith-Schuster might be the wide receiver to own in this group but the jury is still very much out on that. He's nothing more than a desperation flex play going into Week 3.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Justin Watson (chest) practiced in full on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: After a silent Week 1, Watson came up with a 41-yard touchdown catch that puts him on the radar. However, we'll need to see more before considering him a lineup option.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hip) practiced in full once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Much like the rest of the Chiefs' wide receivers, Valdes-Scantling isn't a reliable fantasy option until he separates himself from the crowded group in Kansas City.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Hardman has turned 10 targets into six catches for 65 yards and one touchdown over two weeks. As is the case with any Chiefs wide receiver, it's impossible to trust Hardman on a weekly basis. He's a desperation flex play at best and should be kept on the bench.

Kansas City Chiefs PK Harrison Butker (ankle) did not practice once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Butker is trending towards being inactive once again this week. If he can't go, Matt Ammendola will take his place. Ammendola played well in Week 2, making two field goals (19, 31) and three extra points. Still, you can probably find a better solution on the waiver wire.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Skyy Moore saw only two snaps in Week 2 versus the Los Angeles Chargers, but offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy told reporters Thursday, Sept. 22, that he can "guarantee" that Moore will see more activity than that moving forward.
Huddle Up: And the mystery of how the person most responsible for a player getting playing time seems to forget about said player during the game continues. Moore is arguably the most talented receiver the Chiefs have, but he has been stuck behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman thus far. One might conclude that the rookie's increase in playing time may come at the expense of Hardman, but that would still make him no more than a high-upside stash in fantasy right now.

Kansas City Chiefs PK Harrison Butker (ankle) won't practice on Wednesday, Sept. 21, head coach Andy Reid said.
SOURCE: Not available

Huddle Up: Butker's status remains up in the air for Week 3, so fantasy managers should begin making plans to replace him once again. The Chiefs will deploy Matt Ammendola in Butker's stead if he can't go. Ammendola made both of his field goals and all three of his extra points in Week 2.

Huddle Up: Although his output left a lot to be desired, the seven targets for Valdes-Scantling suggest he has a solid role in the passing attack. Expect the speedy receiver to deliver some big plays and have a few strong performances throughout the season.
