• Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 12/11/17 2:43pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has thrown 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes that are at least 20 yards past the line of scrimmage. He had thrown 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions on such passes in the previous six years combined.

    Huddle Up: Smith is easily having the best passing season of his career. He has shed his reputation as being shy on throwing deep passes, thanks in large part to speed demon and deep threat Tyreek Hill. Smith remains a starting fantasy quarterback for the last few weeks of the season.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 12/9/17 7:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 14, and when he faced the Raiders earlier this year, he caught six passes for 125 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Hill is coming off a 185-yard performance last weekend, and although he has been a boom-or-bust WR3 overall this year, he could deliver on his WR1 ceiling against Oakland.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 12/5/17 11:30am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has averaged 238.2 yards and thrown just five touchdowns in five home games this season compared to 292.6 yards and 18 touchdowns in seven road games.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for those in the playoffs who own Smith, the Chiefs play at home this week against the Oakland Raiders. That's not to say that Smith is an automatic no go, but the numbers are incredibly swayed. It is an OK matchup and after last week Smith is a low-end QB1 candidate.

  • Patrick Mahomes - QB
    Posted 12/3/17 8:08am ET

    The Kansas City Chiefs are still planning to have QB Patrick Mahomes take a 'redshirt season' this year, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, although the idea of him making an appearance in a game has not been taken off the table.

    Huddle Up: Mahomes is running the scout team in practice and hasn't run the team's plays at full speed since the fourth week of the preseason, so starting QB Alex Smith doesn't appear to be in imminent danger of losing his job. Mahomes only has fantasy value in dynasty and keeper leagues at this point.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB
    Posted 12/3/17 2:23pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 40 yards on nine carries against the New York Jets in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 23 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been held to 40 yards or less in three of his last four games and has gone nine games without a rushing touchdown. He still has some fantasy value because he is the team's No. 1 running back but may only be a No. 2 fantasy running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 12/3/17 2:16pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 19-for-33 for 366 yards and four touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 13. He also rushed for 70 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Smith recorded his fourth 300-yard game of the season and tied his season-high with four touchdowns. He has a chance to have some success against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

  • Travis Kelce - TE
    Posted 12/3/17 2:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught four passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Kelce found the end zone for the first time in three weeks and now has seven touchdowns on the season. He will continue to have a big role in the passing game and is a No. 1 fantasy tight end against most opponents.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 2:28pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught six passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Hill had a breakout performance this week after some quiet performances over the last several weeks. He will continue to serve as the No. 1 receiver for the Chiefs and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver next week because of his big-play ability.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 11/27/17 10:33am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid reaffirmed QB Alex Smith will remain his starter for the foreseeable future on Monday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: While Smith's unwillingness to anticipate throws is causing some of the problem, Reid's creativity seems to have gone out the window too. Defenses are playing much more zone against the Chiefs and the offensive line isn't holding up nearly as well, which is causing Smith to revert to some of his old habit of leaving the pocket sooner than he should. A switch to rookie Patrick Mahomes in the near future is unlikely but much more of a possibility than anyone could have imagined last month.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 11/26/17 7:30am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is not expected to be benched this season even though the team has struggled over the last several weeks, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs have lost four of their last five games, but Smith has thrown seven touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues that could start against favorable matchups.

  • Travis Kelce - TE
    Posted 11/26/17 2:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught three passes for 39 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Kelce had a disappointing performance against the Bills and was targeted only four times during the game. He has posted at least 100 yards in two of the last four games and three touchdowns in the last five games. He is still one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a weekly starting option.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 11/26/17 2:51pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught seven passes for 41 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Hill has caught 14 passes over the last two weeks and has two touchdown catches in the last five games. He will continue to be a big part of the passing game and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver against the New York Jets next week.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB
    Posted 11/26/17 2:45pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 17 yards on 11 carries against the Buffalo Bills. He also caught one pass for nine yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been a bit of a disappointment over the last several weeks after his strong start to the season. He has been held to under 50 yards in three of the last four games and has gone eight games without a rushing touchdown. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option next week.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 11/26/17 2:39pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 23-for-36 for 199 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. He also rushed for 35 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Smith has played well at times this season but does have four interceptions over the last three games. He will be facing the New York Jets next week, but owners should be able to find better options for their starting lineups.

  • Albert Wilson - WR
    Posted 11/26/17 2:59pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson caught three passes for 36 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Wilson returned to the lineup after missing nearly a month because of an injury was targeted seven times in Week 12. He probably will be one of the starting receivers moving forward but is not a strong fantasy option.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 11/24/17 2:57pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (glute) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Hill has played well over the last four games and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 11/23/17 2:33pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (glute) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Hill is coming off a solid Week 11 game and has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last five games. He should continue to have a big tole in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB
    Posted 11/22/17 8:07am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12, which have yielded the highest average fantasy points to the position the last five weeks.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has cooled off a bit the last five weeks with no touchdowns or 100-yard rushing games. Since the Bills traded Marcell Dareus, their defense has fallen off a cliff. They allowed 32.1 fantasy points per game to backs over the last five weeks, which is nearly seven points more per game than the next team. Opposing backs have 10 rushing scores in five games against them. Hunt is an elite RB1 play this week.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 11/22/17 3:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (glute) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Hill has been playing better over the last month with at least 64 yards in three of the last four games and two touchdowns during that span. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues this week.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB
    Posted 11/19/17 2:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 73 yards on 18 carries against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been slowing down after the fast start to the season but had a solid performance against the Giants. He will continue to receive a significant amount of touches moving forward and can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 11/19/17 2:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 27-for-40 for 230 yards and two interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 11. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Smith failed to throw a touchdown in a game for the first time this season even though it was expected to be a favorable matchup. He has also thrown three interceptions in the last two games. He will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 11/19/17 2:30pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught seven passes for 68 yards against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Hill has been playing better recently and has been targeted at least six times in all but one game this season. He will continue to be a solid part of the passing game and can be considered at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver in leagues.

  • Travis Kelce - TE
    Posted 11/19/17 2:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 109 yards against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has posted at least 100 yards in two of his last three games and has 22 catches in his last three games. He is one of the best tight end in the NFL and is a must-start option each week.

  • Alex Smith - QB
    Posted 11/6/17 8:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith broke retired QB Bernie Kosar's NFL record for consecutive pass attempts to start a season without throwing an interception, making it to 287 passes before throwing his first one in the team's Week 9 game Sunday, Nov. 5. He broke Kosar's record by one.

    Huddle Up: Smith still had yet another terrific game on Sunday night despite his Chiefs dropping to 6-3 with the loss in Dallas. In fact, he's having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league this year, leading everyone in QB Rating (113.9) while amassing 18 touchdown passes and 2,444 yards in nine games. As a result, he's established himself as a perennial QB1.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB
    Posted 11/5/17 8:06pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt finished with a season-low nine carries for 37 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: The rookie's rushing totals have been lacking in recent weeks, but an upcoming bye week and Week 11 matchup with an imploding New York Giants team should help Hunt return to his RB1 form.

  • Travis Kelce - TE
    Posted 11/5/17 8:23pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finished with seven catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has now scored in three straight games, and he is challenging Rob Gronkowski for the title of top fantasy tight end.

  • Tyreek Hill - WR
    Posted 11/5/17 8:15pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill finished with two catches for 64 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown to close the first half, and he ran four times for nine yards in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Hill has managed just four catches over the last two games, but his big-play speed makes him a WR2 candidate on a weekly basis.

  • De'Anthony Thomas - WR
    Posted 11/3/17 3:44pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR De'Anthony Thomas is expected to work as the team's No. 2 wide receiver in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys with WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Thomas will be the team's No. 2 wideout, starting opposite Tyreek Hill. He could see an increase in targets, and the versatile receiver might even see a rush or two. However, he hasn't had more than three touches in a single game this season, so he is still only worth considering as a WR5 in deeper fantasy formats at this time.

  • Demarcus Robinson - WR
    Posted 11/3/17 3:43pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WRs Jehu Chesson and Demarcus Robinson could be in for larger roles in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys with WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) out. Head coach Andy Reid said Friday, Nov. 3, the team is unlikely to summon help from the practice squad.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs carry four healthy receivers into Week 9 with Wilson out, meaning Chesson and Robinson will be the third and fourth receivers. However, despite the fact they might see a couple of targets, their fantasy ceiling is still rather limited.

  • Kareem Hunt - RB
    Posted 10/30/17 9:35pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt was held to a season-low 68 yards from scrimmage in the team's Week 8 victory Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos. He had 46 rushing yards on 22 carries to go with three receptions for 22 yards. It was the first time Hunt did not record 100 total yards after hitting that plateau in an NFL-record seven straight games to begin his career.

    Huddle Up: Well, Hunt's remarkable streak had to be snapped at some point, and it was halted by a stingy Broncos defense. Nonetheless, Hunt has been one of the league's biggest surprises in 2017 and this particular showing shouldn't suddenly slow down the 22-year-old. He should still be inserted as an RB1 in all leagues.
