Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said that he would work on his footwork during the period between minicamp and training camp. He said that he misses many plays because his feet are in the wrong position and he relies too heavily on his arm.
Huddle Up: Generally speaking, it is an ill-advised strategy to select a quarterback in the first round of fantasy football drafts but Mahomes may be the exception to that rule. The defending Most Valuable Player is worthy of consideration as the top quarterback off the board in all formats.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde is listed as the backup to RB Damien Williams, but he has been busy at minicamp, lining up along with Williams in the teams backfield on occasion. He has been used as a receiver. 'For a running back like me who likes to catch the ball, it would be like a dream come true,' Hyde said Wednesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: Hyde sees a giant improvement going from Blake Bortles in Jacksonville to Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City, so if he can carve out a role as a pass catcher out of the backfield he might be a decent PPR fantasy option again.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill still could face league punishment even though a local district attorney said Friday, June 7, he is no longer the subject of an active criminal investigation involving domestic-abuse allegations. The NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, as written, entails the league can, and will, investigate and punish a player for domestic violence even if he's never arrested or charged. The NFL also can, and will, punish a player for domestic misconduct that does not involve actual violence has been demonstrated by precedents.
Huddle Up: While the D.A. announcement was a positive development for Hill and the Chiefs, a lot of gray area remains here, and Hill is far from out of the woods yet. It's advisable to stay away in fantasy pending further developments.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is currently not under investigation for child abuse it was revealed Friday, June 7. 'It is not an active investigation,' Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said in an email Friday to the Kansas City Star. 'As in any case, if we receive additional evidence, we reevaluate.'
Huddle Up: Hill is certainly not out of the woods yet as he remains suspended by the Chiefs and will almost certainly miss some time this coming season. Stay away until further notice.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams is 'our starter' and someone the team expects to 'excel in that role,' according to offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
Huddle Up: Williams famously closed out last season doing his best Kareem Hunt on-field impression, erupting for 572 total yards and eight total touchdowns beginning in week 15 and ending in the AFC Championship Game. He's done enough to buy himself time to prove his finish wasn't a fluke, but the fact of the matter he isn't considered more of a lock to be a 16-game starter is that last year's 73 regular-season touches were the most of his career. He's a high-end RB2 with some risk but potential RB1 upside.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's lawyer has issued a denial in letter form of the child-abuse allegations made against Hill in a recent audio recording. N. Trey Pettlo's four-page letter, which was sent to the NFL on Thursday, May 2, also accuses Hill's fiancee, Crystal Espinal, of inflicting some the abuse to the couple's 3-year-old son that has been attributed to Hill. Pettlon said Hill is willing to meet with NFL investigators and will cooperate with the investigation 'to the extent that he can under the law.'
Huddle Up: Hill remains suspended from the team while the Chiefs conduct an internal investigation, and his NFL future remains up in the air.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will not take part in any team activities for the 'foreseeable future,' according to GM Brett Veach, who added the team will gather more information before making the 'right decision.'
Huddle Up: This action is in direct response to an audio recording that came out earlier in the day that appears to feature Hill discussing events surrounding the injury suffered by his three-year-old son. Clearly the decision not to prosecute Hill is not the end of this story, and it's unclear what the final resolution will be regarding Hill's future in the NFL.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will not be charged in a child abuse investigation involving his son.
Huddle Up: Hill can still be punished by the NFL even though he was not charged with any crimes, so people should keep an eye on the situation. He has been one of the best receivers in the NFL over the last few seasons and should be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues.

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.

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.

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) could see significant playing time after agreeing to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, in the opinion of Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, because of general manager Brett Veach's preference for bigger backs. 'I kind of have a thing for 220-pound backs that can run and catch and block,' Veach said.
Huddle Up: Hyde will start the year behind Damien Williams in the pecking order, but he has shown he can handle a lead role if necessary. At the very least, he should be considered a handcuff for owners who draft Williams.

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, March 9.
Huddle Up: Hyde would be the backup to Damien Williams if he does end up with the Chiefs, but he'd still be worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially if you select Williams earlier your draft.

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.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is being shopped to other teams in a trade, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hyde rushed for 571 yards with the Jaguars and Cleveland Browns last season but did not have much success during the second half of the season. He could be a No. 2 running back for a team if he is traded but likely will not be a strong fantasy option.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde could be released this offseason because the team would save $4.75 million in salary cap space if Hyde is let go.
Huddle Up: Hyde probably will not be able to find a starting job if he is released but could be a No. 2 running back for a team. He probably will see a handful of carries during games next season and may only be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins caught four of his eight targets for 114 yards in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Injuries remain a constant issue for Watkins, but he wasn't bad when he was on the field. He topped 60 yards in five of his final six games, including the playoffs, and even as the No. 3 option in the Kansas City passing attack, he will have WR3 upside in 2019.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught three of his five targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in a 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: It marked just the second time all year and the first time since the season opener that Kelce failed to top 40 receiving yards. His season may have ended on a sour note, but that doesn't change the fact that Kelce may be the top fantasy option at his position heading into 2019.

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.

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.

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.
