Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Watkins has already missed back-to-back games, and he won't be rushed back for what should be a cakewalk matchup for the Chiefs against the New York Jets. Fantasy managers can slot in another option if they haven't already moved on.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught all three of his targets for 31 yards in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs only ran 51 offensive plays and got touchdowns from their defense and special teams, so most of the Chiefs' studs that fantasy owners rely on every week weren't needed to do very much. He could be in for more of the same in Week 8 versus the New York Jets, but fantasy owners should just treat their Chiefs as they would in any other favorable matchup. Kelce should be started in fantasy regardless of the situation anyway.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill recorded a season-high six catches on 10 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners are undoubtedly used to seeing larger yardage totals from Hill, but Denver did a good job of taking away the deep ball and Kansas City did a good job defensively and on special teams to put the game away early as the Chiefs only ran 51 offensive plays. Hill and his teammates are in a blowup spot in Week 8 versus the New York Jets, but there's always a danger a team like Kansas City puts away an opponent like that so quickly that not every player gets his numbers. Hill is still a must-start for that game, however.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell ran for 39 yards on six carries in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Bell saw six touches to Clyde Edwards-Helaire's nine, but it would be a mistake to read too much into that based on the fact Kansas City led by three scores for most of the second half. Bell's touches were always going to be limited in this game after he was cleared to practice with the team less than a week ago. Bell figures to be on the flex radar at the very least in Week 8 against the New York Jets, and it probably goes without saying he'll try to stick it to the team that released him a couple of weeks ago.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran for 46 yards and a touchdown on eight carries in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos. He also caught one of his four targets for 17 yards.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners will inevitably try to connect Edwards-Helaire's modest touch and yardage totals to Le'Veon Bell's debut with the team, but the fact is Kansas City only ran 51 offensive plays and led by three scores for most of the second half. Head coach Andy Reid recently talked about taking some hits off "his little guy," so a game like this helps him do that. He or Bell (or both) could be in a spot to explode in fantasy in Week 8 when the Chiefs host the winless New York Jets.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes finished 15-of-23 for 200 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Even the great ones don't throw for four touchdowns every week. Mahomes really didn't need to do too much in the first snow game of the year, as Kansas City took a 24-9 halftime lead largely on the strength of an interception return and a kickoff return for a touchdown. Mahomes rested for the last half of the final quarter with the game in hand, further limiting any opportunity to boost his production. The former league MVP could be in for a similar game script in Week 8 but still needs to be started everywhere against the hapless New York Jets.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to see some snaps against the Denver Broncos in Week 7.
Huddle Up: It is no surprise that the Chiefs plan to ease Bell into action. There is no denying his upside, but he needs to be left on the bench until his role and workload become clear.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Demarcus Robinson served as the No. 2 receiver for the Chiefs last week and probably will have a similar role this week. He can be a flex option or bye week replacement in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) isn't likely to play in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 25, head coach Andy Reid said Friday.
Huddle Up: No real surprise as Watkins was expected to miss a couple games after injuring the hammy in Week 5. Damarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman will be counted on in his stead.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) remained out of practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Watkins was expected to miss multiple weeks after sustaining the hammy injury in Week 5, and it's looking like Week 7 will be one of those weeks. Check Friday to see if he was able to get back on the field, but plan on using another wideout for now.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell will practice this week, according to head coach Andy Reid, but he said they'll 'take it day by day' in regards to whether or not Bell will be active in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: All eyes will be on Bell whenever he debuts to see what kind of role he fills. Until that happens just leave him parked on your bench and hope Reid has something substantial in mind.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman was targeted one time during the Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills but finished with zero receptions.
Huddle Up: Hardman was expected to be more involved in the passing game with Sammy Watkins out but was not able to catch his lone target. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues next week.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught three passes for 20 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs were playing in inclement weather, so Hill was not a big factor in the passing game. He should have more success next week against the Denver Broncos and can be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught five passes for 65 yards and two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Kelce has recorded at least five receptions in five of the six games this season and has been targeted 53 times in those games. He will continue to be a focal point in the passing game for the Chiefs and is a must-start option no matter the opponent.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught five passes for 69 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Robinson was more involved in the passing game with Sammy Watkins sidelined and played well against the Bills. He likely will see a handful of targets next week and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 161 yards on 26 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. He also caught four passes for eight yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire had one of the best games of his career against the Bills, but his workload moving forward is uncertain since the team signed Le'Veon Bell. He should continue to see a solid amount of touches despite the addition of Bell and can be at least a flex option next week.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes went 21-for-26 for 225 yards and two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. He also rushed for 36 yards on 10 carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Mahomes has thrown at least two touchdowns in all six games this season and has rushed for at least 25 yards in four of the last five games. He should be a must-start option next week against the Denver Broncos.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (ankle) practiced in full Saturday, Oct. 17, and doesn't have an injury designation for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hardman can be a FLEX option in a nice matchup against the Buffalo Bills with WR Sammy Watkins ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) practiced in full again Saturday, Oct. 17, and doesn't have an injury designation for the Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 19, against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Hill needs to be in lineups as a WR1, especially with teammate WR Sammy Watkins having been ruled out.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Hill continues to be the one of the top receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Hardman is in line for more work in the passing game with Sammy Watkins sidelined. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues despite the tough matchup.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is unlikely to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher.
Huddle Up: The implication here is that the team believes Watkins will miss fewer than three games, which is what IR requires this season. Mecole Hardman should benefit in the short term, but like Watkins, he'll be tough to rely on in a passing attack that only consistently targets Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Hardman is in line for a bigger role in the passing game with Sammy Watkins injured. He can be considered at least a flex option in leagues but could also be a No. 3 receiver in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Hill had his four-game touchdown streak snapped last week but posted at least 75 yards for the third time in five games. He will continue to see plenty of targets in the passing game and should be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Jets) will be signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Bell should take over the backup job for the Chiefs and likely will have a role in the running and passing game. Fantasy players may want to see him play in a game for the Chiefs before having him in their lineup, but he has a chance to be at least a weekly flex option in leagues.

Free agent RB Le'Veon Bell is drawing interest from the Buffalo Bills. 'We always look into every situation, this being one of them,' Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Thursday, Oct. 15. 'Trying to improve our football team -- that's all I can say right now.'
Huddle Up: The Bills' running game has struggled this season with the team ranking 27th with 93.8 yards per game and 27th in yards per carry (3.8) -- and that's with QB Josh Allen's 101 yards and three TDs (of the team's four total rushing scores). Starting RB Devin Singletary ranks 30th at the position with only 42 total fantasy points in five games and third-round rookie Zack Moss has missed three games with a toe injury, so Bell could definitely provide a jump-start.
