Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (concussion/neck) on Saturday, Sept. 26, was listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game Monday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: It looks as if it will come down a pre-game decision Monday night, and that's a lot of risk for a WR3/flex option in a tough matchup. Go ahead and roll with another similar option if at possible.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (head) is in the concussion protocol and will not practice Thursday, Sept. 24, head coach Andy Reid said.
Huddle Up: Watkins took a blow to the head in the Week 2 game against the Chargers but will have an extra day to recover as the Chiefs don't play until Monday night. His progress likely will need to be monitored through the weekend.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (head) had one catch for 11 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 20. He was knocked from the game following his lone reception on what head coach Andy Reid described as a questionable hit.
Huddle Up: What can you really say about Watkins at this point? He has WR1 talent and, on any given week, can go out and prove it. Just as easily, however, he can author a complete stinker, and his durability has long been suspect. Watkins is a weekly lottery ticket, offering a high floor and very low ceiling.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce tallied nine receptions, 90 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 20. Kelce was targeted a team-high 14 times.
Huddle Up: Kelce came up big in a tough Week 2 matchup with the Chargers, leading the club in both targets and receptions. He's an elite talent at the position and a weekly TE1.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 99 yards and a touchdown in a Week 2 win against the Los Angeles Chargers. Hill was targeted 11 times.
Huddle Up: Hill finally got loose for a big play, scoring on a 54-yard pass from Mahomes. The pair only connected five times in 11 targets, though, and face another stiff test next Monday night against the Ravens. Regardless of matchup you should keep Hill in your active lineup.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran 10 times for 38 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. He added six receptions for 38 yards.
Huddle Up: After accounting for 138 yards and a TD in Week 1, Edwards-Helaire managed a less impressive 70 total yards and didn't score against the Bolts. There are always going to be ups and downs over a 16-game schedule, and the rookie remains an RB1.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes went 27-for-47 for 302 yards and a pair of touchdowns during the team's overtime win against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 20. Mahomes also ran six times for 54 yards.
Huddle Up: Despite falling victim to just one sack, Mahomes took a beating on Sunday. He weathered the storm, however, and led the Chiefs to a come-from-behind victory with some clutch plays late. He's a must-start QB1, even in a tough Week 3 matchup against the Ravens.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Williams ended up with just one touch, a reception, as Clyde Edwards-Helaire led the way in touches with Darwin Thompson also seeing the ball out of the backfield.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Williams will only see a handful of touches against the Los Angeles Chargers this week and can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire lost two yards on six carries in goal-to-go situations in Week 1, and running backs coach Deland McCullough blamed Edwards-Helaire for the lack of success. 'The bottom line is, if you follow all the keys we're coached up to do in our room, he scores,' McCullough said.
Huddle Up: The worst-case scenario would be Edwards-Helaire eventually losing touches near the goal line, but for now, it appears to be a minor criticism in an otherwise strong debut. The rookie should be treated as a RB1.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Williams received nine touches in the first game but only posted 30 total yards. He probably will see a handful of touches again this week but can be avoided in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire averaged 2.68 yards after contact against the Houston Texans in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire had 138 rushing yards and a score in his debut, and while the rookie will benefit from running lanes opened up by Patrick Mahomes and the high-powered passing attack, it certainly won't hurt that he can also grind out yards on his own. He's primed for RB1 production all season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had one catch for six yards on Thursday, Sept. 10, against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: There are only so many balls to go around, and the only sure things in KC's passing attack are Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, whereas the likes of Hardman, Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson are likely to ebb and flow. That level of uncertainty makes Hardman a tough sell to roll the dice on in a weekly fantasy lineup, even though his talent and the offensive upside suggest he's worth owning.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had six receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown against the Houston Texans on Thursday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Kelce was active early, catching all six of his passes before halftime, including Kansas City's first touchdown of the season. He wasn't even targeted in the second half, however, which led to a disappointing 50 yards receiving -- a total he failed to surpass just twice in 16 games last year. Despite a slow start by his high standards, Kelce remains a must-play TE1.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hauled in five passes (on six targets) for 46 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 1 win over the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: There were no spectacular plays from Hill or the Chiefs in general on Thursday night with Patrick Mahomes doing a lot of dinking and dunking where his long completion of the night was a mere 19 yards. Still, Hill salvaged some fantasy value with short touchdown grab early in the fourth quarter. Hill carries WR1 potential every week, but he's a better fit as a WR2 given his dependency on big plays.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins caught seven passes for 82 yards and a touchdown against the Houston Texans on Thursday, Sept. 10. He was targeted a team-high nine times.
Huddle Up: Watkins had a huge Week 1 last year (9-198-3) as well and then failed to top 100 yards in a game or score again for the rest of the season. While there's no doubt that Watkins has upper-tier talent, he has been wildly inconsistent during his two years with the Chiefs. As such, his performance Thursday night should be met with no small degree of skepticism.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed seven times for 23 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Clyde Edwards-Helaire made it clear that the backfield belongs to him, but Williams was called on when the rookie needed a breather. Edwards-Helaire owners may want to grab Williams as a handcuff.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed 25 times for 138 yards and a touchdown in a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The rookie lived up to the hype in his debut, and he appears to be primed for a workhorse role and RB1 production this season. Outside of failing to catch a pass, fantasy owners have to be thrilled with Edwards-Helaire's performance.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 24 of his 32 pass attempts for 211 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Mahomes didn't throw for a ton of yards, but he was efficient as the Chiefs cruised to the victory. Even if he doesn't thrown for 300-plus yards every game, multiple touchdowns and QB1 numbers should remain the weekly norms for Mahomes.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' 10-year, $450 million deal includes insurance in the event that an injury prevents Mahomes from being available to play. It also includes salary cap protection.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is a top-two option at the position in fantasy. Last season's dislocated knee was a scare, but it was a fluky thing. Have confidence in your stud QB every week.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Williams likely will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Chiefs and should receive some touches against the Houston Texans this week. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) fully participated in practice Monday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Williams is entering the season as the team's No. 2 running back and should receive some touches this week against the Houston Texans. He could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues but can be benched if better options are available.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Kelce should be ready to play in Week 1, but fantasy players can monitor the situation to make sure. He is one of the top tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Hill does not need to rush back to practice with the start of the regular season a few weeks away. He is one of the focal points in the passing game and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is expected back at practice soon, head coach Andy Reid said Friday, Aug. 21. 'It's not a big tear or anything like that,' Reid said of Hill's injured hamstring.
Huddle Up: Hammy issues and training camp go hand-in-hand, but this one bears watching more than most as the speedy Hill is once again en elite WR1 entering the season. Stay tuned ...

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (groin) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 21, after missing time with a groin injury.
Huddle Up: While this issue didn't appear to be anything major, Watkins has a history of health concerns and it's one of the reasons why he's a WR5 despite playing in one of the league's most potent offenses.
