Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 9/16/18 3:16pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-28 passes for 326 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has 10 TDs through two games, most in NFL history to start a season.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is making Kansas City brass look wise for parting with Alex Smith to open up the starting job for the former Texas Tech gunslinger. He'll look to keep it rolling heading into Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Chris Conley - WRPosted 9/16/18 3:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley posted two grabs for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Despite the score, Conley is the third wideout in the pecking order in Kansas City with Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins ahead of him. He also has to contend with Travis Kelce for targets, too. Conley is only worth a look in the very deepest of fantasy leagues at the moment. The Chiefs host the 49ers in Week 3.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 9/16/18 3:34pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill registered five receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown on six targets in the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Hill is off to a red-hot start, jelling nicely with Patrick Mahomes during the early going. This looks like one of the most dangerous young pass connections in the league. The speedster has 12 grabs for 229 yards and three scores through the first two games. Needless to say, he is a legit WR1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the 49ers.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 9/16/18 3:30pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins posted six receptions for 100 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Watkins jelled nicely with Patrick Mahomes in this one, leading all wideouts in targets and yardage in this one. Treat Watkins as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 3 against the 49ers.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/16/18 3:27pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce posted seven receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Kelce disappointed a bit in the opener, but he more than made up for it with a giant game in Week 2. He remains a bona fide TE1 in all fantasy leagues and this performance shows why you need to be patient. He'll look to keep it going in Week 3 against the 49ers.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 9/16/18 3:20pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 75 yards in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while adding a catch for five yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Hunt started out slowly last week against the Chargers, but this was more like it for fantasy owners. He still has just 124 rushing yards on 34 attempts, an average of 3.6 yards. Hunt remains a RB1 based on his production last season, but the emergence of Patrick Mahomes under center is cutting down Hunt's fantasy value a bit. The Chiefs host the 49ers in Week 3.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 9/9/18 7:12pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 15-of-27 passes for 256 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Mahomes got the ball early and often to Tyreek Hill, and that's about the smartest thing you can do. The receiver averaged 24.1 yards per catch while gathering in two of Mahomes' four TD strikes. If he keeps up at this pace he'll be fantasy elite before too long. Mahomes will try and keep it going in Week 2 on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 9/9/18 7:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins managed just three grabs for 21 yards on five targets in his team debut in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Watkins has the speed to do so much more, but this one was the Tyreek Hill show and everyone else in the wide receiver corps took a backseat. The former Clemson Tigers standout has never reached fantasy superstar status, but he has the speed to be a relevant WR4 if he can just stay on the field.
Travis Kelce - TEPosted 9/9/18 7:29pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce was limoted to just one reception for six yards on six targets in the Week 1 road win against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Kelce is considered an elite fantasy option at his position, so this isn't exactly what his owners had in mind, especially when Patrick Mahomes tossed four touchdowns and the team rolled up 38 points. He'll look for a bounce-back game in Week 2 on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Be patient and hang in there.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 9/9/18 7:25pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hauled in seven receptions for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Hill had a monster performance to make his fantasy owners smile from ear to ear. He has really developed a nice rapport with new QB Patrick Mahomes, and it might be the start of a special season. He faces a tough matchup in Week 2 on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers, although Cleveland's Jarvis Landry was able to hit triple digits in yardages against the Steelers in Week 1.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 9/9/18 7:18pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 16 times for just 49 yards in the Week 1 win against the Los Angeles Chargers and he had no catches on only one target.
Huddle Up: Hunt disappointed his fantasy owners, as the Bolts did a good job mostly bottling him up. Kansas City didn't press too hard to run the ball, as they were having mega success in the pass game. He faces another difficult matchup on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2, but he remains a fantasy stud. Be patient.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 9/8/18 6:35pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1, and last year, Hunt rushed for a combined 327 yards in two meetings with the Chargers, topping 150 rushing yards in both games.
Huddle Up: Hunt should be a fixture of season-long lineups all year, but after he torched the Chargers twice last year, you may also want to build around Hunt in DFS contests in the opener.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 8/25/18 1:16pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran three times for seven yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Chicago Bears while adding a 19-yard touchdown on his only catch and target.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs know what Hunt is capable of doing and likely wanted to get him out of the game as quickly as possible to avoid disaster heading into the regular season. Hunt is a bona fide RB1 across all fantasy formats heading into 2018.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 8/25/18 1:11pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill posted eight receptions for 88 yards on his eight targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Hill has certainly jelled nicely with Patrick Mahomes, as the young quarterback knows where his bread will be buttered. The speedster for the Chiefs has low-end WR1 or must-start WR2 heading into the regular season, even with a young and unproven quarterback at the helm.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/25/18 1:07pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 18 of his 24 pass attempts for 196 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Mahomes has a big arm and plenty of athleticism, and he should be considered a high-end QB2 with some upside. There will likely be some growing pains along the way, but he'll be an especially popular streaming option once the bye weeks kick in and primary starters are out.
Spencer Ware - RBPosted 8/25/18 1:22pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) made his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Chicago Bears. He ran three times for three yards while adding two grabs for 18 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Ware was making his first game appearance since suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament last preseason. He will be the primary backup to Kareem Hunt, and the team is obviously confident in his healthy since they jettisoned Charcandrick West earlier this week. Ware is more of an RB5 at this point, and a handcuff to those drafting Hunt early on draft day.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/23/18 11:11am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins is building a strong relationship with QB Patrick Mahomes, according to offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. Bieniemy said the pair's communication and rhythm is starting to sync and that Watkins is progressing.
Huddle Up: Watkins' rapport with Mahomes hasn't shown in the preseason yet. Watkins will likely be the No. 3 target in Kansas City's offense this year behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. That being said, he's a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 candidate, but taking him as a WR3 is more advisable.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/17/18 6:48pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed eight of his 12 passes for 138 yards, a touchdown and an interception and rushed twice for eight yards against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Mahomes showed off his big arm and his athleticism, dangling his upside in front of fantasy owners. Surrounded by weapons, Mahomes has tons of upside as a QB2.
Tyreek Hill - WRPosted 8/17/18 6:54pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught four passes for 87 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown, against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Hill already possessed elite speed, and he could take advantage of Patrick Mahomes' arm to produce even more big plays this year. Hill is a WR2 in all formats.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/14/18 11:43am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and the first-team offense will play the whole first half in Week 2 of the preseason, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Huddle Up: Mahomes will be given meaningful playing time for the first time since Week 17 of last season. He'll need it, too, to shake off rust and develop more fluidity with his supporting cast. His dual-threat ability gives him high-end QB2 appeal.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/6/18 10:11am ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hip) left practice early Monday, Aug. 6, because of a hip injury.
Huddle Up: The severity of Watkins' injury is not known at this point, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. He has dealt with injuries in the past but is a solid fantasy option when healthy. Watkins is expected to be one of the top options in the Chiefs passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 8/4/18 1:48pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) missed another practice Saturday, Aug. 4, due to concussion.
Huddle Up: West is reportedly on the bubble for a roster spot, so this missing time certainly isn't helping his cause. Even if he were to make the team's roster he would have very limited fantasy appeal unless injuries at the position opened up a more prominent role.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 8/1/18 11:28am ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes made a handful of miscues in practice again Wednesday, Aug. 1, and he now has seven interceptions through six camp practices. 'He had a few hiccups today,' offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. 'But that's a part of the process. When you're young you need those hiccups because they become valuable lessons.'
Huddle Up: All indications are that Mahomes is also making plenty of big plays, too. He is trying to break the stigma that Texas Tech quarterbacks are system guys, and Red Raiders cannot play at the next level. It's something Zebbie Lethridge, Kliff Kingsbury, B.J. Symons, Graham Harrell, Sonny Cumbie, Seth Doege and, to this point, Davis Webb haven't been able to shake. The last effective NFL QB from Texas Tech dates back to Billy Joe Tolliver in the late 80's. Mahomes looks to have plenty of upside, but he remains a high-risk, high-reward QB2 in redraft leagues for now.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 8/1/18 6:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: Hunt was limited for several practices because of a hamstring injury but should be fine moving forward. He was one of the better running backs in the league in 2017 and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Chiefs. He likely will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.
Charcandrick West - RBPosted 7/29/18 5:36pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) has been diagnosed with a concussion and did not participate in practice Sunday, July 29. West left practice early Saturday, July 28, after taking a blow to the head.
Huddle Up: West will miss some practice time because of the injury, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He may serve as the No. 2 running back for the Chiefs this season but will not receive a lot of playing time. He probably should only be considered a handcuff to Kareem Hunt.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 7/28/18 11:23am ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) was limited to individual drills during practice Saturday, July 28. Head coach Andy Reid said the team is easing Hunt back into practice because he does not want Hunt to suffer a setback.
Huddle Up: It is not known how long Hunt will be limited, but he has plenty of time to recover before the start of the season. He is coming off a fantastic rookie season and will continue to be one of the better running backs in the NFL. He likely will be off the board early during fantasy drafts.
Kareem Hunt - RBPosted 7/27/18 5:32pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) has been limited during the early part of training camp because the team is easing him back into practice.
Huddle Up: Hunt probably will be a full participant in practice later in camp but will be fine for the start of the season. He was one of the top running backs in the league last season and will continue to receive a lot of touches. He should be a No. 1 fantasy back in all leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 7/27/18 8:29pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins was praised for his work ethic by head coach Andy Reid, and QB Patrick Mahomes said it has been easy to develop chemistry with Watkins.
Huddle Up: Watkins hasn't lived up to his potential, but his big-play ability and Mahomes' huge arm are an intriguing combination. Watkins offers a ton of upside as a WR3.
Patrick Mahomes - QBPosted 6/30/18 9:17pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is a 'complete player,' according to free-agent LB Tamba Hali (Chiefs). 'He can throw the ball,' Hali said. 'Athletically, he's gifted. You don't have to coach it. In practice, I'd watch him just look guys off.'
Huddle Up: Mahomes is a high-risk, high-reward QB2 in redraft leagues, but he has the physical tools, the coaching staff and weapons around him to be an impact fantasy option sooner rather than later.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/26/18 11:45pm ET
Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins has been learning all of the team's receiver positions during the offseason, which will allow him to line up all over the field. Watkins says head coach Andy Reid has been helping him become a better player by making him learn the entire route tree.
Huddle Up: It's tempting to think Watkins might finally deliver on his full potential, but barring injury he is, at best, the No. 3 option in passing game behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. While his apparent development in KC is encouraging, Watkins shouldn't be selected as more than a WR3.
