Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is considered day-to-day with a hamstring injury that sidelined him for Week 12 versus the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: For what it is worth, Reid said Toney is considered day-to-day for "cautious reasons." Toney figures to be an important part of the passing game at some point - perhaps more in 2023 than 2022 - but the passing game functioned well before he arrived and again on Sunday without him. Assuming Toney can go in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals, he should be considered nothing more than a WR4 with upside.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 27-of-42 passes for 320 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams, while adding 36 rushing yards. He has seven 300-yard games this season.
Huddle Up: It was the sixth consecutive 300-yard game for Mahomes, which fantasy managers certainly appreciate, but the Chiefs were a dismal 1-for-6 in red-zone efficiency, including a rare Mahomes interception in the end zone in the fourth quarter. He'll look for better red-zone efficiency in Week 13 on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will return to the lineup after missing the last game because of the injury. He is one of the main options in the passing game and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring, shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: McKinnon will see some touches in the running and passing game this week and could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Toney has struggled with injuries this season and does not have a timetable for his return. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling will be the main targets in the passing game and are both starting fantasy options.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring, shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: McKinnon should receive a handful of touches this week and probably will be more involved in the passing game. He could be a possible flex option in deeper point-per-reception leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Toney suffered the injury in the last game, and it seems like will not be available for the Week 12 game. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation but should not count on Toney this week.

Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring, shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: McKinnon is coming off a disappointing Week 11 game but may see a few more touches each game with Clyde Edwards-Helaire sidelined. He could be a possible flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Toney suffered the injury in the last game and is probably questionable at best for the Week 12 game. He could be a possible flex option if he plays, but fantasy players may want to look for other options to use.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve, head coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire, who is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, has fallen out of favor over the course of the season, giving way to rookie Isiah Pacheco to take over lead-back duties. The LSU product will now be out a minimum of four games, which means his return will come on or around the start of fantasy playoffs. He can be stashed on IR for fantasy managers who have spots, but dropping him is also a viable option in re-draft leagues. Edwards-Helaire should remain rostered in dynasty formats, though, but his future is looking grim.

Updating an earlier report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) was ruled out due to his hamstring injury on Sunday, Nov. 20. After the game, head coach Andy Reid said the hamstring "tightened up" on Toney.
Huddle Up: Toney seemed to be in line for a larger role with Mecole Hardman going on IR, but now we'll need to wait and see the severity of Toney's injury. If he's set to miss time as well, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Skyy Moore could be waiver wire targets.

Updating earlier reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain during the team's Week 11 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Head coach Andy Reid noted that the injury "doesn't look good," and did not rule out Edwards-Helaire being placed on IR.
Huddle Up: If CEH misses time, which seems likely, Isiah Pacheco should be the primary ball carrier with Jerick McKinnon seeing time as well. We could also see the debut of Ronald Jones, who has been a healthy scratch for each of the team's first 10 games. Wait for a timeline before making a move with Edwards-Helaire, but Pacheco should be added immediately if available.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco could continue to see his role grow, according to head coach Andy Reid. "But it's more of a learning experience with Pacheco, and the more you see, the more you utilize him," Reid said.
Huddle Up: Pacheco led the Chiefs in carries and rushing yards in Week 10, and it sounds like Reid was pleased with the rookie's performance. Kansas City's backfield has been tough to predict from one week to the next, but Pacheco could be emerging as the lead back. Consider him a flex option with RB2 upside in Week 11.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling is in line for a big role in the passing game since JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman will not be available. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring, shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 18, but is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: McKinnon has caught 12 passes over the last two weeks and should be involved in the passing game again this week. He could be a possible flex option in some point-per-reception leagues.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and has been ruled out for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Kadarius Toney likely will be the main receivers for the Chiefs for the next week or two because of injuries to other receivers. Both receivers can be at least flex option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Juju Smith-Schuster (concussion) was not spotted at practice Friday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely Smith-Schuster will clear the protocol in time to play so managers should have a pivot option. WR Kadarius Toney seems to benefit the most from his absence.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (quadriceps) practiced in full once again on Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Pacheco appears to have fully supplanted Clyde Edwards-Helaire for the Chiefs' RB1 after the former out-touched (16-0) and out-snapped (35-4) the latter by wide margins in Week 10. Pacheco's lack of involvement in the passing game may limit his ceiling but he's officially a flex option going into Week 11.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling is now moving in the right direction after a "DNP" on Wednesday but we'd still like to see a full session out of him tomorrow. Valdes-Scantling could be the No. 1 option for Kansas City in Week 11 with Mecole Hardman (abdomen/illness) now on injured reserve and JuJu Smith-Schuster's (concussion) status up in the air. If Smith-Schuster sits, both Kadarius Toney and Valdes-Scantling would be flex options.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring/shoulder) was limited in practice once again on Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Friday will tell the story for McKinnon's Week 11 status. Looking ahead, it's possible he sees more work behind Isiah Pacheco with Clyde Edwards-Helaire seemingly falling out of favor. For now, the veteran is nothing more than a dart-throw flex play in full-point PPR setups.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Hardman will miss at least the next four games. His injury/illness came at a bad time as he was just starting to deliver on some of the promise the Chiefs envisioned for him when they drafted him in 2019, scoring in three straight before sitting out Week 10. Hardman's absence theoretically clears a spot for Kadarius Toney to assume his role as an all-purpose weapon and should allow the former New York Giant to become a regular fantasy starter. There is a good chance Toney remains the starter even after Hardman returns - if he does.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) will return to practice Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling could be the de-facto WR1 if both Juju Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman are absent. He would be a boom/bust WR3 option if that's the case.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (abdominal) will not practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Pacheco received nearly all of the carries in the running game last week and may receive a similar workload this week. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.
