Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is expected to return to action in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs play Thursday, so those fantasy owners who might be counting on him won't have to sweat his status one way or the other. He's proven to be very difficult to count on for any length of time due to his lack of durability, and there's no reason to expect that to change now with a soft-tissue injury. Watkins should be considered a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option moving forward.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson did not have a reception on four targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Robinson is back to reserve fantasy status now that Tyreek Hill is back and the apple of Patrick Mahomes' eye again. Mecole Hardman has also emerged as a useful receiver in the pass game, and even Byron Pringle is carving into Robinson's work. He can safely be returned to the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman finished with four receptions for 45 yards on four targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Hardman has two or more grabs in each of his past five starts, including four or more in back-to-back outings. That's fine as a WR5 in PPR fantasy leagues, but as long as Tyreek Hill is healthy and available, Hardman's ceiling is rather limited. The Chiefs travel to meet the Denver Broncos in Week 7 on Thursday.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finished with four grabs for 58 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Despite the marginal stat line, Kelce remains an obvious top fantasy option at his position. He'll look to bounce back Thursday in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos on the road.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) registered five receptions for 80 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans in his return to the lineup.
Huddle Up: Hill gave the Chiefs their big downfield threat and he cashed in with a pair of scores. If you were nervous about plugging him back into the active lineup, worry no more. He is a must-start fantasy option again heading into Week 7 at Denver on Thursday night.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams didn't have a carry in Week 6 against the Houston Texans and he managed just one reception for 52 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: One touch, albeit a nice play, will simply not get it done for fantasy owners. LeSean McCoy had 10 total touches with Damien Williams seeing two touches. Right now they're riding Shady, and that's no good for the usage of either of the backs named Williams. The Chiefs hit the road to battle the Broncos in Week 7 on Thursday.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams rushed just once for six yards and he added a 14-yard catch for touchdown in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but two total touches simply will not do. Avoid him outside of deeper fantasy leagues until he starts to see an increase in workload again. The Chiefs travel to meet the Broncos in Week 7 on Thursday night.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy rushed eight times for 44 yards with two grabs for no gain in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: McCoy was the best of the lot for the Chiefs offense on the ground, but that's not saying much. He remains more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 19-of-35 passes for 273 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Mahomes looked mortal over the past two games, banging up his ankle and suffering from a lack of mobility. His fantasy lines were just average as a result. However, while his ankle might not have been 100 percent, he had his deep threat Tyreek Hill back, and they hooked up for two scores. It's a quick turnaround for Mahomes and the Chiefs, as they head to Denver on Thursday for their Week 7 game.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) felt good during pregame warmups and is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Houston Texans, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hill had been listed as questionable on the injury report but was able to participate in all three of the team's practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He should be viewed as a must-start option in al fantasy formats, especially since WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) will not play versus the Texans.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) will not play in Week 6's game against the Houston Texans, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Watkins had been listed as doubtful on the injury report due to a strained hamstring and was unable to practice at all during the week. WRs Tyreek Hill, Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle could see more targets this week due to his absence.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: McCoy has lost some touches with Damien Williams back in the lineup but should still have a role in the running and passing game. He has a chance to be a flex option in some leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is leading the league in passing yards this season and may be in a high scoring game this week. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hill will be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He should be a starting option if he plays, but players will need other options available in case he is ruled out.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was unable to practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: With Tyreek Hill expected to be a game-time decision and Watkins likely out, Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle could serve as the Chiefs' top three receivers this weekend. The bigger question is if Patrick Mahomes can avoid another ankle injury, as things went south fast in Week 5 once he got hurt. With a healthy Mahomes, Robinson, Hardman and Pringle can all be considered high-upside WR3s this weekend.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) is expected to be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Head coach Andy Reid told reporters Hill ran with the scout team this week and a "little bit" with the first-team offense, and Reid made it sound as if the receiver will go if he doesn't have a setback between now and Sunday. Hill's limited work in practice this week after being out for roughly a month doesn't sound like a recipe for a big fantasy day, but owners could do worse than give him a shot as a high-upside WR3/flex this week with four teams on a bye.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) remained a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: McCoy should be clear for Week 6, though he's now sharing the backfield with Damien Williams. They'll eat into each other's upside when both active, but either one could be any RB2 any given week.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) practiced in full once again Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: It's been a smooth week thus far for Mahomes, and he should be all systems go Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) remained out of practice Thursday, Oct. 10, for the second straight day.
Huddle Up: Watkins has only caught 14 passes for 167 yards and no TDs since his 9-198-3 explosion in Week 1, and combining that with his health and the number of other WR options K.C. has, including (possibly) the return of Tyreek Hill this week, you're looking for other fantasy wideout options this week.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: McCoy was held to only two touches last week with Damien Williams back in the lineup. He should be more involved in the offense this week and can be a flex option in some leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Mahomes continued his streak of at least 300 yards last week but has been held to only one touchdown pass over the last two weeks. He may be in a high scoring game this week and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Hill appears to have a chance to play in Week 6, so fantasy players will need to monitor his practice participation. He has missed the last several weeks but will be a focal point in the passing game when he returns. He can be a starting option in all leagues if he is active this week.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: There is still time, but odds are Watkins won't play this week. Byron Pringle broke out with a 6-103-1 week, but Tyreek Hill (shoulder) is getting close to returning. Pringle would be a flex option against the Houston Texans.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy played only 14 snaps in Week 5 versus the Indianapolis Colts due to problems in pass protection, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: It was widely assumed McCoy got benched for his second-quarter fumble, although one could easily make the argument this reason is even worse considering how long he has played for Reid. Damien Williams (35) easily saw the most snaps in Kansas City's backfield in Week 5, although he didn't exactly do much with his 12 touches (38 total yards). McCoy is the better back of the two, but it is anyone's guess how this backfield is going to shake out from week to week at the moment.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) tweaked his ankle in the Week 5 game Sunday, Oct. 6, but he expects to be OK. 'Just reaggravated it a little bit there in the first half and then got stepped on in the second half,' Mahomes said. 'Obviously it's going to be a little sore tomorrow.'
Huddle Up: The injury isn't really worrisome, and he should remain a must-start against the Houston Texans next week.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught three of his six targeted passes for 31 yards against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: In three games since his huge performance in Week 2, Robinson has 10 catches for 109 yards and a score. It's hard to project value for anyone in KC's passing game beyond Kelce and, when healthy, Hill. When pressed into a larger role by injuries, Robinson could hold fringe value. When everyone is healthy, though, he can't be trusted.
