Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney is "super talented with the football in his hands," according to offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. "We all see what he can do when the football's in his hands. Same type of deal (as JuJu Smith-Schuster). He comes over halfway through the season - it's a whole new offense. He's got to learn the ins and outs, and so you have that point. He was able to do that, and it's exciting now for us to be able to take that to Year 2 and build that relationship with (Patrick Mahomes). He's super talented with the football in his hands, and he's been that way his entire life in his football career," Nagy said.
Huddle Up: It turns out Nagy has been watching the same player most Toney supporters have seen in his two years in the league. Again, it comes down to durability with Toney because the talent is obvious. The third-year pro is one of the most likely candidates to move from fantasy WR3/4 territory to WR1 status in 2023 if he can stay on the field. Getting to Week 1 without an injury of some sort would be a great start for him.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney can be "a No. 1 type receiver," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, and may be enough to keep the team from aggressively pursuing free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins.
Huddle Up: Multiple NFL insiders and reporters have pounded the drum from Toney this offseason, so it should come as no surprise that we are hearing it yet again. Toney's ability to be a major target earner is not in question; he creates separation like few others. The problem is his injury history, as he played only 19 of a possible 33 games since he was drafted by the New York Giants in 2021. While fantasy managers will have to decide if they want to roll the dice on his durability, his ceiling as Patrick Mahomes' top wideout is immense.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney has never had the chance to play with a quarterback who pushes the ball down the field like QB Patrick Mahomes, according to general manager Brett Veach, and Veach believes "the sky is the limit" for Toney in the Kansas City offense.
Huddle Up: Toney has dealt with injuries and inconsistent play throughout his career, but he will probably never have a better chance to live up to his potential than he will this season. Toney could legitimately emerge as the No. 1 receiver for the Chiefs, but he will be a high-risk, high-reward heading into 2023.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney is a player who can "do anything," according to general manager Brett Veach on Thursday, April 20.
Huddle Up: Veach added: "I don't know if there's a limit to his game." While the general manager is probably being overly enthusiastic about last year's midseason acquisition, it still reflects what the club thinks about how talented he is. The Chiefs' lack of additions at receiver this offseason reflects this feeling and reinforces earlier reports about the team viewing Toney as their top receiver. His biggest challenge has been staying healthy. If he can do that starting in 2023, he has legitimate WR1 upside.

Kansas City Chiefs WRs Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore "will probably have bigger roles" in 2023, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Toney and Moore playing more in 2023 was probably going to happen regardless of what the Chiefs do this offseason, but Kansas City may have no choice but to make the duo a bigger part of the offense with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman set to reach free agency. Toney's emergence seems the more likely of the two considering how dynamic he has proven to be in open space. He has the talent to eventually give the offense some of the things Tyreek Hill used to if he can stay healthy and could very well be this summer's must-have fantasy sleeper.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Feb. 10, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LVII.
Huddle Up: Toney has had a solid role in the offense since being acquired by the team. He should see a decent amount of targets during the game and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Feb. 9.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) did "everything that was planned for him to do" and was "running around like crazy" during practice Wednesday, Feb. 8, according to head coach Andy Reid. Per Reid, the team will remain cautious with his outlook until the team finishes practice Thursday, Feb. 9.
Huddle Up: Reid noted that Thursday's practice is expected to be the hardest of the week, so fantasy enthusiasts will need to hope he escapes unscathed. Toney has the potential to be a big difference-maker in Super Bowl LVII and moving into 2023, but he desperately needs to avoid the soft-tissue injuries that have plagued him over the course of his first two NFL seasons. If he avoids a setback Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, Toney has a great chance to be Kansas City's most productive receiver.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (ankle, hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Feb. 8.
Huddle Up: Toney has been dealing with the injuries over the last few weeks, but the team is optimistic about his availability for Super Bowl LVII. He can be a flex option in some leagues if he is active for the game.
