Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (concussion, toe) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 21, and remains in the concussion protocol, head coach Andy Reid said.
Huddle Up: No surprise either way as Mahomes progresses through the protocol, and we'll see if things ramp up any Friday.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) was not seen at practice Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: Bell practiced Wednesday so this could just be a veteran rest day. We likely will know more when the Chiefs' Thursday practice report comes out.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) is participating in practice Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: Watkins, who was limited in practice Wednesday, hasn't played since Week 16, and upping his participation level Thursday or Friday will go a long way toward doing so.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is participating in practice Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: CEH was limited Wednesday, and we will soon find out if he was able to up his level of participation a day later. Certainly something to keep an eye on in any case as the rookie rumbled for a season-best 161 rushing yards in the Chiefs' 26-17 Week 6 win over the Bills.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (concussion) will have a very light practice Wednesday, Jan. 20. Mahomes has no symptoms and will ramp up his work through the week.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is probably the best QB left in playoff pools if he's able to return for the AFC Championship game.

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (concussion, toe) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: There has been a prevailing sense of optimism that Mahomes will be ready to go for next weekend from almost the time he suffered the injury less than 24 hours ago, but he must pass the five-step protocol just like everyone else has to in order to make it back. Assuming he does, he and Aaron Rodgers figure to be staples in the bulk of DFS lineups for championship weekend.

Kanas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) has been declared inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams should both receive a decent amount of snaps against the Cleveland Browns and can be flex options in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson likely will have a bigger role in the Divisional Round playoff game with WR Sammy Watkins (calf) unavailable.
Huddle Up: Robinson caught six passes in the regular season finale but posted at least 50 yards in only three regular season games. He will see a handful of targets this week but can be avoided in most leagues.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (hip, ankle) did not practice for a second consecutive day Friday, Jan. 15. However, head coach Andy Reid told reporters afterward that Edwards-Helaire looked 'fine' in his limited practice two days earlier and that he wanted to give his running back as much time and rest as possible ahead of the team's AFC Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Although the Athletic's Nate Taylor believes Edwards-Helaire will end up being a "true game-time decision," his report - along with his questionable status on the team's injury report - suggests he has a decent shot at leading the Kansas City backfield Sunday. While some fantasy owners were disappointed with his regular-season production, he offers significantly more to the offense than Le'Veon Bell and Darrel Williams do. Fantasy owners need to have a backup plan, but it sounds as if the rookie will play.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) did not practice again Friday, Jan. 15, and will be be ruled out for Sunday's divisional playoff matchup with the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: This will be the seventh game Watkins will miss this season, meaning more targets for WRs Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle likely are in store.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Edwards-Helaire was limited to begin the week coming off the team's bye, so it's still too early to tell if this is a case of the team being cautious or the player suffering a setback. If he is limited or full on Friday, the rookie should be considered a strong option in what should be a high-scoring game against the Cleveland Browns. If he logs another DNP to close out the practice week, Darrel Williams and Le'Veon Bell will likely share touches, making both players little more than DFS punts.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) is a little bit ahead of schedule in returning from a Week 15 ankle injury, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: It's still unclear if CEH will be ready to roll this weekend, but it's something to monitor as we get closer to game time. If Edwards-Helaire is deemed fit he could carry significant fantasy value.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson (back) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Robinson could see a few targets in the AFC Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns with WR Sammy Watkins (calf) at risk of sitting out. Robinson would be a risky play in any fantasy format without a secure floor of fantasy production.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Watkins was inactive for Week 17 and hasn't played since catching two of four targets for 14 yards in Week 16. If he's out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce would see some extra work with maybe a handful of targets split between WRs Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Chad Henne completed 23 of his 32 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17. RB Darwin Thompson rushed 14 times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught all seven of his targets for 65 yards and a score. WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in six passes for 58 yards, WR Byron Pringle caught four balls for 52 yards and a touchdown, and WR Mecole Hardman had a pair of receptions for 25 yards and lost a fumble. LB Darius Harris led the team with 10 tackles, and CB DeAndre Baker finished with five tackles, a sack and pass defensed.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is officially active for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Bell will receive a lot of playing time, which makes him a risky option in fantasy leagues. He can be kept on the bench if fantasy players have better options available.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Chad Henne will start Week 17's game versus the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Since Kansas City has already locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the playoffs, the team is deciding to rest QB Patrick Mahomes this afternoon in favor of Henne, who received all of the reps in practice this week and will be making his first NFL start since 2014. However, he should be avoided in all fantasy formats, especially considering that many of the Chiefs' other starting players will also be rested.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (rest) will not play in Week 17's game versus the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: This should come as little surprise to any football fan, as the Chiefs want to make sure their star quarterback is completely healthy and rested for their postseason run. QB Chad Henne will receive the starting nod this afternoon but is not a recommended fantasy option because many of Kansas City's other top players will also be held out of action.
