Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Kelce should be able to handle his normal workload against the Tennessee Titans and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He should be a starting option in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hill appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 7 game, but fantasy players should check the inactive list for his official status. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active, but players should have a backup plan ready in case he sits out.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) will not participate in the team's practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: It's the second missed practice in as many days for Hill, but he still remains likely to play Sunday in Tennessee as a locked-in WR1. Just monitor his status Friday.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Kelce has been targeted at least 10 times in three of the last four games and has posted at least 75 yards in four games this season. He continues to be one of the better tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option in all leagues when healthy.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) returned to the Week 6 game after missing time because of a quadriceps injury.
Huddle Up: Hill probably will not do much during practice this upcoming week because the injury but should have a good chance to be available for Week 7. He is a starting option in all leagues when healthy.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hill appears to have a decent chance to play in the Week 6 game, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He will be a risky option if he is active but can still be a starting option in leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Hill appears to be in danger of missing the Week 6 game, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He is a weekly starting option when healthy, but players will need other options available in case he sits out.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Hill is the No. 2 receiver in PPR leagues and is worth watching throughout the week. However, it would take something serious to knock him out of Week 6.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire will miss at least the next three games, which is roughly how long a player with a medial collateral ligament sprain like the one he suffered usually needs to recover unless there was more damage to the knee than initially reported. Darrel Williams is expected to start in his absence and will likely get spelled by Jerick McKinnon. The possibility of the Chiefs adding another via trade also cannot be ruled out. Until that happens, Williams can be treated as a low-end RB2/high-end flex option.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) was diagnosed with a medial collateral ligament sprain Monday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Expect CEH to miss somewhere between two to four games. Edwards-Helaire was coming off consecutive 100-yard rushing efforts but head coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy's highly inconsistent usage of their starting running back - especially in the passing game - makes him much more hit-or-miss than he should be for fantasy purposes. Darrel Williams should get the bulk of work in his absence, but he will struggle to be anything more than a high-end flex while CEH is sidelined.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams carried the ball five times for 27 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. He also caught three passes for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Depending on the severity of Clyde Edwards-Helaire's knee injury, Williams could emerge as a priority acquisition for fantasy owners across all format this weeks. While he would probably share some touches with Jerick McKinnon, Williams figures to be the primary option if CEH is set to miss significant time.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) caught six of his 10 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Head coach Andy Reid noted Kelce suffered a stinger late in the game, so the all-world tight end will likely be limited in practice this week at best. The 32-year-old's durability has long been one of his many selling points for fantasy purposes, and it seems likely he'll play if he can in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team. Assuming he can suit up for that contest, he should still be considered the top fantasy option at his position.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 33 of his 54 passes for 272 yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs in a Week 5 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Mahomes added 61 yards on eight rushing attempts with a fumble lost.
Huddle Up: After throwing five and six interceptions, respectively, over the entirety of the past two seasons, Mahomes tossed his fifth and sixth picks of 2021 on Sunday night. He also lost a fumble and looked generally uncomfortable in a lopsided loss to Buffalo. Yes, there were extenuating circumstances -- bad weather and inconsistency from his receivers -- but this is not what fantasy owners and football fans have come to expect out of Mahomes and this offense. For all that, the former MVP remains a strong QB1.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (knee) hauled in seven of his 13 targets for 63 yards in Week 5 versus the Buffalo Bills. He also ran for 15 yards on his only carry.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs took a beating in this contest, as head coach Andy Reid noted that four offensive starters suffered injuries of some sort. Buffalo was content to play both safeties 15 to 20 yards off the line of scrimmage on many occasions, and the combination of the weather (heavy rain) and a lack of willingness to methodically move down the field led to the Chiefs' undoing. Hill arguably has more fantasy upside than any receiver in the league, and he'll likely bounce back in a big way in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman secured nine of his 12 targets for 76 yards in Week 5 versus the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The nine catches are a career high for Hardman, while his 12 targets were also a personal best and only six fewer than he saw in the first four games of the season combined. Buffalo's strategy of playing both of its safeties deeper than usual forced Kansas City to take small chunks, and the Chiefs proved to be incapable of setting for what the Bills were giving them. Hardman is probably worth picking up in deeper leagues, but it is quite possible he won't have more than two or three fantasy relevant games the rest of the season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Hill has been a bit inconsistent this season but still ranks second in the NFL with 453 yards. The Chiefs may be in a high-scoring game this week, so Hill is a must-start option in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Josh Gordon was signed off the practice squad and is expected to play in Week 5 versus the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: The quick promotion indicates the Chiefs are happy with his conditioning and ability to run a small package of plays. It is way too early for managers to consider starting him in fantasy, but a good showing with the likely 20 or so plays he will likely get against an improved Buffalo defense should go a long way in determining if he has WR3 upside down the road. He's worth a speculative add off waivers, but expectations should continue to remain low for now.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Josh Gordon has a chance to play in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills, according to comments made by head coach Andy Reid on Monday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Gordon is a longshot to contribute in a meaningful way anytime soon, but the mere fact Kansas City dipped its toe into the Gordon pool suggests the Chiefs want more out of the second receiver spot than Mecole Hardman or Demarcus Robinson has given them. Gordon is worth a stash in deep leagues in the unlikely event he can shake off years of rust and inactivity over the next month, but fantasy managers would be advised to not expect much anytime soon.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Jody Fortson had a 2-yard touchdown in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles on his only reception and target.
Huddle Up: Fortson has scored in back-to-back games, but he just doesn't see enough touches to warrant fantasy usage in most leagues. He'll look to make it three games in a row with a score in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman had two receptions for 16 yards and he added two runs for 25 yards in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Hardman can be an explosive player, but he just doesn't get enough touches to warrant fantasy usage outside of deeper leagues at the moment. It might take an absence from Tyreek Hill before Hardman has a real meaningful role. The Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.
