  • Noah Fant held to one catch vs. Kansas City
    Noah Fant caught 1-of-5 targets for seven yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: With Joe Flacco all the way off the rails, Fant never stood a chance. The first-round rookie now has just four grabs for 29 yards over his past three games. The "next step" probably won't exist for as long as Flacco is under center. Rotoworld.com 6 minutes ago

  • Byron Pringle not targeted in Denver
    Byron Pringle wasn't targeted in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

    Advice: And that's that. Pringle's zero-look night came in a game where Patrick Mahomes was lost to a knee injury in the second quarter. Even were Sammy Watkins (hamstring) to miss another game in Week 8 against the Packers, Pringle would be miles from fantasy relevance if Mahomes can't give it a go. As of Thursday evening, Mahomes seemed likely to miss at least 1-2 games. Rotoworld.com 9 minutes ago

  • Demarcus Robinson goes 3/31 versus Broncos
    Demarcus Robinson caught 3-of-5 targets for 31 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

    Advice: Travis Kelce's eight targets paced the team, but Robinson's five tied Tyreek Hill for the lead in the receiver corps. Just one of Robinson's three grabs came after Patrick Mahomes departed with a knee injury late in the second quarter. Regardless of Sammy Watkins' (hamstring) status, Robinson's fantasy value would evaporate were Mahomes to sit against the Packers in Week 8. Rotoworld.com 12 minutes ago

  • Mecole Hardman goes 2/23/1 versus Broncos
    Mecole Hardman caught 2-of-3 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

    Advice: Hardman's touchdown was a 21-yard strike on a 3rd-and-2 late in the first quarter. Hardman could have notched another 21-yarder minutes later, but Patrick Mahomes' throw was off the mark. The real story was Mahomes' departure with a knee injury late in the second quarter. Even were Sammy Watkins (hamstring) to remain sidelined, Hardman would be off the WR3 radar if Matt Moore started against the Packers. Rotoworld.com 15 minutes ago

  • Damien Williams held to six yards in Denver
    Damien Williams rushed nine times for seven yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos, adding two receptions for -1 yards.

    Advice: It was a disastrous night for Williams. He saw the ball on the Chiefs' opening drive, but LeSean McCoy got the start and out-touched his backfield mate 4-1 on the first possession. McCoy went on to out-touch Williams 14-11 and out-gain him 76-6. McCoy's touch advantage is up to 24-13 over the past two weeks. Especially if Patrick Mahomes (knee) is sidelined, Williams will lack serious FLEX appeal for Week 8 against the Packers. Rotoworld.com 17 minutes ago

  • LeSean McCoy easily out-gains Damien Williams
    LeSean McCoy rushed 12 times for 64 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos, adding two receptions for 12 additional yards.

    Advice: McCoy and Damien Williams were both on the field for the Chiefs' opening drive, but McCoy set the tone by out-touching Williams 4-1 on that possession. He ended up winning the touch battle just 14-11, but soundly out-gained him 76-6. Perhaps clarity might finally be coming to the Chiefs' backfield, as McCoy has a 20-10 carries advantage over the past two games. McCoy will have RB2 appeal for Week 8 against the Packers, though Patrick Mahomes' (knee) potential absence downgrades the entire Chiefs offense. Rotoworld.com 22 minutes ago

  • Emmanuel Sanders goes 5/60 in loss to Chiefs
    Emmanuel Sanders caught 5-of-6 targets for 60 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Sanders was lucky to escape with the yardage he did, as Joe Flacco was so bad even FOX analyst Troy Aikman was calling for his benching. Speaking after the game, Sanders was asked what went wrong. "You know the answer," Sanders said. "You watched the same game." If you watched the game, you saw a completely immobile Flacco getting devoured by the Chiefs' previously stagnant pass rush. With 10 days between now and the Broncos' Week 8 trip to Indianapolis, it's possible contract-year Sanders has played his final game in Denver. The trade deadline is in 12 days.

  • Travis Kelce goes 6/44 in Denver
    Travis Kelce caught 6-of-8 targets for 44 scoreless yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

    Advice: In a slump, Kelce has just 172 yards over his past three games and hasn't scored since Week 2. That end zone visit in Oakland remains his lone touchdown of the year. Things will be further complicated with Patrick Mahomes (knee) looking doubtful for Week 8 vs. the Packers. Even if Mahomes sits, it stands to reason that Kelce will operate as Matt Moore's security blanket, keeping him in the top five at his position. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Courtland Sutton goes 6/87 vs. Chiefs
    Courtland Sutton caught 6-of-8 targets for 87 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

    Advice: Even with Joe Flacco setting the quarterback position back 20 years, Sutton managed to exceed 75 yards for the third straight game, and fifth time in seven 2019 appearances. He is an ascending sophomore with both big play and possession chops. Flacco is the concern. Even still, Sutton has established himself as an every-week WR2.

  • Royce Freeman notches 14 touches, touchdown
    Royce Freeman rushed 10 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs, adding four receptions for 32 additional yards.

    Advice: Freeman's score was a one-yard plunge in the second quarter. It was his first carry inside the five-yard line all season. Phillip Lindsay entered the league amongst the league leaders in goal-line totes with seven. It's unlikely Lindsay will cede that advantage going forward. Freeman remains a near weekly lock for 15 touches, but he is having trouble turning it into RB2 value in the Broncos' inept offense. An Indianapolis road trip is on tap for Week 8.

  • Phillip Lindsay held to 12 touches vs. Chiefs
    Phillip Lindsay rushed 11 times for 36 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Lindsay "added" a -4 yard reception for his only catch. It was a fourth quarter Joe Flacco hospital ball that Lindsay was not happy about. Flacco was the story, as his staggering ineptitude allowed the Chiefs to tee off on the box at will, torpedoing the passing and running games alike. Lindsay could also only watch as Royce Freeman received the Broncos' lone goal-line carry of the evening, cashing it in for a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Lindsay entered the evening with seven carries inside the five to Freeman's zero, so it is unlikely there has been a changing of the guard in that department. Although Flacco is becoming a bigger and bigger liability, Lindsay will remain a usage-based RB2 for Week 8 against the Colts. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago

  • Tyreek livens up snoozefest with 57-yard TD
    Tyreek Hill caught 3-of-5 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Broncos.

    Advice: Hill saved what was shaping up to be a disastrous night with a 57-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. Sweeping across the field, Hill got a step on Chris Harris and was off to the races with his unrivaled speed. Hill entered halftime with zero targets and without his starting quarterback, as Patrick Mahomes limped to the locker room late in the second quarter. That he still made a big play with Matt Moore was an excellent sign for the Chiefs going forward. The early word on Mahomes' injury is positive, but there remains a real chance he is sidelined for Week 8 vs. the Packers and beyond. Without Mahomes, Hill would become a highly-volatile, low-end WR1. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago

  • Flacco bottoms out in dismaying performance
    Joe Flacco completed 21-of-34 passes for 213 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Broncs' 30-6, Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: In a truly dismaying performance, Flacco also lost a fumble six and took eight sacks against the Chiefs' previously underachieving pass rush. It's not like Flacco was receiving good blocking, but he deserved a large share of the blame for the quarterback takedowns. The Chiefs were teeing off on a player with the mobility of a tackling dummy. Things got so bad that normally quarterback defensive FOX analyst Troy Aikman was wondering why Flacco had not been benched for Brandon Allen. Flacco has produced more than one score in just 6-of-7 starts. Truly pathetic. With Allen not really a realistic option, Flacco figures to be under center in Indianapolis next week. Rookie Drew Lock (thumb) is nearing a return from injured reserve. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:15 pm

  • Patrick Mahomes limps off, ruled out (knee)
    Patrick Mahomes limped off the field during the second quarter against the Broncos with a right knee injury and has been ruled out.

    Advice: Andy Reid called a quarterback sneak near the goal line in order to convert a 4th and short, and it resulted in Mahomes laying on the field injured. Helmet off, covering his face, Mahomes had his right knee attended to by doctors. The cart even drove onto the field, but Mahomes waved it off and limped off with trainers. He was then seen in the X-ray room, exited after two minutes and was immediately ruled out for the game. Matt Moore replaced the injured 2018 MVP. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:15 pm

Now that he’s finally back to full health, Terrell "(wouldn't) be surprised" if the Saints made a run at the 29-year-old tight end. There have been reports that the Saints are on the prowl for an additional pass catcher. Eifert is contributing close to nothing to a broken offense in Cincinnati. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:05 pm

  • Palmer: Ankle injury is affecting Mahomes
    NFL Network's James Palmer said Patrick Mahomes is dealing with a "legit" ankle injury.

    Advice: Speaking on Mahomes' relative lack of production the past few games (we say "relative" because he's still on pace to shatter the league's single-season passing yards record), Palmer said the quarterback's ankle ailment, an injury he picked up in Week 1 and later aggravated against the Colts in Week 5, is "probably worse than most people think it is." Palmer noted that opponents have emphasized man coverage schemes against the hobbled MVP, who has been reluctant to abandon the pocket throughout his injury. Despite his ankle woes, Mahomes has only missed nine offensive snaps this year and none since Week 1. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am

    Advice: Sanders practiced again on Tuesday, an excellent sign he will be ready to go on the short week. Joe Flacco has been having trouble making multiple fantasy receivers relevant any given week — and it's usually been Courtland Sutton — but there should be room for the two of Sutton and Sanders against the Chiefs' shaky defense.

Sanders got banged up on Sunday, but reportedly isn't dealing with a serious injury and has a real shot to suit up Thursday night against the Chiefs. The 32 year old has quieted down a bit after a hot start to the season with just two catches for nine scoreless yards over the last two weeks.

  • Fant targeted three times against Tennessee
    Noah Fant supplied two catches for 16 yards on three targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 6 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Notably, Fant was the intended receiver on Joe Flacco's interception. It wasn't the sharpest pass Flacco's right arm has ever delivered, though Fant deserves at least some of the blame for the mishap, losing the ball in the air as it traveled downfield. Fant provides plus athleticism (his 94th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine would speak to that), but without a consistent role or an accurate quarterback delivering him the ball, he seems destined for fringe fantasy status. We're not holding our breath for a Week 7 breakout, even against a beatable Chiefs secondary. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:49 pm

  • Freeman active in the pass game with 5 grabs
    Royce Freeman delivered 34 yards on 11 carries while also bringing in five grabs for 42 yards on five targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 6 win over the Titans.

    Advice: Phillip Lindsay got the glamour touches (aka goal-line work), but Freeman was still plenty involved, particularly in the passing game with Joe Flacco feeding him a steady diet of check-downs and dump-offs. Freeman has made big strides in that regard, recording more catches through his first six games (21) than he had all of last season (14). Lindsay remains the alpha in Denver's backfield but Freeman is still worthy of flex attention, particularly given his newfound role on passing downs. Freeman and the Broncos will host the Chiefs Thursday night at Mile High. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:46 pm

  • Sutton tallies 76 yards in win over Titans
    Courtland Sutton nabbed four catches for 76 yards on eight targets Sunday in Denver’s Week 6 win over Tennessee.

    Advice: Sutton exploded for a 40-yard catch in the second quarter, beating Logan Ryan down the sideline on a well-thrown deep ball by Joe Flacco. The second-round sophomore wasn't featured much in the second half (two grabs for 23 yards on three targets), drawing more downfield attention in the absence of Emmanuel Sanders, who left after aggravating a knee injury. Sutton has shown a surprisingly safe floor, clearing the 60-yard threshold in five of six appearances this year. Playing at home against a bottom-rung Kansas City secondary in Week 7, Sutton could be in for a big night Thursday at Mile High. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:48 pm

  • Lindsay stays hot with 15-70-1 in Week 6
    Phillip Lindsay raced to 70 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries while notching two grabs for five yards on three targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 6 win over Tennessee.

    Advice: Lindsay was bottled up for the most part, though he did break off a 30-yard run, putting Denver in field-goal range with 7:12 to go in the fourth quarter. The former Colorado Buffalo rewarded fantasy owners with his fourth touchdown in as many games, punching in a two-yarder to give the Broncos a two-score advantage in the third quarter. Lindsay and backfield-mate Royce Freeman have been operating in a near 50-50 split (he out-touched Freeman by a narrow 17-16 margin on Sunday), though Lindsay has emerged as the better fantasy bet, in large part due to his scoring prowess. The sophomore stud will be back at it Thursday night against Kansas City as the surging Broncos seek their third straight victory. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:47 pm

  • Flacco throws for 177 yards in Week 6 victory
    Joe Flacco completed 18-of-28 passes for 177 yards and an interception while adding four carries for -1 yard Sunday in Denver’s Week 6 win over the Titans.

    Advice: He took one sack for a 10-yard loss. The saying goes, you don't have to be faster than the bear—just faster than the slowest guy running from the bear. That was Sunday's game in a nutshell as Flacco was largely ineffective but still better than his Tennessee counterpart, Marcus Mariota, who was benched for Ryan Tannehill in the second half. Flacco took his lumps Sunday, botching a shotgun snap late in the first half before misfiring on a third-quarter deep bomb to Noah Fant, which Kevin Byard gladly stole for his third interception of the year. The veteran did hit his mark on a 41-yard deep shot to Courtland Sutton, but highlights like that were few and far between. With no better alternative (second-round rookie Drew Lock remains on injured reserve), the Broncos will roll out the former Super Bowl MVP again for Thursday night's showdown with Kansas City.

    Demarcus Robinson laid an egg in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Mecole Hardman caught all four of his targets for 45 yards in the Chiefs' Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Even with Tyreek Hill (5/80/2) back in the lineup, Hardman was clearly game-planned for on screens and intermediate routes. Both he and Demarcus Robinson will continue starting in three-wide sets across from Hill, but the latter's undeniable floor/ceiling combo is the only one worth chasing among Kansas City's receivers week in and out. Hardman will be a WR4/5 away from Chris Harris' blanket coverage in Denver on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:18 pm

  • Byron Pringle catches 2/24 behind Tyreek Hill
    Byron Pringle caught 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Pringle's path to opportunity always hinged on both Tyreek Hill (5/80/2) and Sammy Watkins being ruled out, which was nixed the moment Hill was cleared in warmups. He's a name worth keeping in mind if Tyreek's shoulder is ever re-aggravated, but Pringle will take a backseat to both Mecole Hardman (4/45) and Demarcus Robinson in the interim.

    LeSean McCoy rushed a team-high eight times for 44 yards in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Unlike last week, McCoy out-carried teammate Damien Williams 8-1 as the Chiefs' clear-cut lead back. Shady has yet to top 82 yards in any outing but continues to have value as a piece in this backfield as long as this role holds. He's also just looked better than Damien on early downs, rushing for 48/258/2 and 5.3 YPC in six games as a complement. He'll remain an RB3/FLEX option on Thursday against the Broncos.

    Travis Kelce caught 4-of-6 targets for 58 yards in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Kelce nearly hauled in a five-yard touchdown but slipped in his break towards the sideline and ended up falling over. His six targets were a season-low mark, but he still currently ranks third-overall at his position with a whopping 49 looks through six weeks. Due for touchdown regression in the coming weeks, fantasy players have no choice but to continue rolling out Kelce as a TE1 on Thursday against the Broncos. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:51 pm

  • Mahomes tosses three scores in hobbled loss
    Patrick Mahomes completed 19-of-35 passes for 273 yards, three touchdowns and one pick in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: As has been the case all season, Mahomes missed a few throws to crossing receivers in the corner of the end zone that he notoriously hit last year. He's now on pace to toss 37.3 touchdowns, 13 fewer than his league-high 50 in '18. Even so, he tied Drew Brees in this one for the longest streak in NFL history with 240-plus passing yards in 25 consecutive games. Noticeably in pain and limping once his already-tweaked ankle was caught underneath a defender in the first quarter, Mahomes' inaccuracy could very well be pinned on his inability to make plays outside of the pocket on one good foot. It will be an injury to monitor before the Chiefs take on the Broncos in a short turnaround on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:49 pm

    Advice: Eifert only managed 14 yards against the worst defense against tight ends last week and followed it up with seven yards in Week 6. The veteran tight end is a touchdown-dependent TE2 on a team that doesn't score many touchdowns. Not a great combo. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:05 pm

    Tyreek Hill caught 5-of-10 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: It was obvious Hill was healthy the moment Kansas City took the field as their first play went in his direction on a downfield fly route. Hill capped off the Chiefs' opening drive with a 46-yard catch between two defenders that took a valiant leap (and ensuing effort) on a free play that resulted in Kansas City going up 7-0. His second touchdown occurred on man-to-man coverage gone awry. With a team-high 10 targets under his belt in his first start since Week 1, it's clear Hill will be a lid-lifting matchup-proof WR1 in every matchup moving forward. Start him with confidence against the Broncos on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:24 pm

  • Damien Williams: One touchdown, two touches
    Damien Williams rushed one time for six yards and (luckily) scored on his only target in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Texans.

    Advice: Williams has averaged a laughable 1.96 YPA on his 32 carries this year, but his two touches from Sunday are still an odd juxtaposition considering coach Andy Reid leaned on him for 100 percent of the team's backfield carries just last week. Not only was Damien out-carried by LeSean McCoy 8-1 on the day, Darrel Williams' 52-yard catch in the seam trumped the former's final receiving yardage (14). Damien led the trio in snaps (56%) for the second consecutive game but it's clear this is a true timeshare moving forward. Damien needs to be downgraded against the Broncos in Week 7 whereas Darrel is still a viable end-of-bench stash and RB2 if either ahead of him miss time. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:19 pm

  • Tyreek (shoulder) cleared for Week 6 return
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Tyreek Hill (shoulder) will be active for Week 6 against the Texans.

    Advice: It's happening. Hill is back in the fold after missing four games with an injury to his shoulder/clavicle. The Chiefs haven't said if he'll be on a snap count though even at limited capacity, Hill's elite field-stretching ability keeps him in play as a WR1 in a game with shootout written all over it. Only five teams have surrendered more passing yards than the Texans this year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:35 am

  • Tyreek (shoulder) 'trending towards playing'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Tyreek Hill (questionable, shoulder) is "trending towards playing" in Sunday's Week 6 game against the Texans.

    Advice: Hill has been cleared to play coming off a month-long absence, though he did battle soreness throughout the week and will test out his injured shoulder/clavicle in pre-game warmups before the Chiefs commit to him for Week 6. Even on limited reps, Hill can still do serious damage against a lackluster Houston secondary and belongs in the WR1 discussion. His expected return is a downgrade for complementary receivers Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:08 am

  • Tyreek Hill (shoulder) a true game-time call
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyreek Hill (shoulder) has a "serious chance" to play in Week 6 against the Texans.

    Advice: Hill will test his shoulder pregame before the team makes a final call on his availability. With a "serious chance" to play, season-long and DFS players should begin filtering out Byron Pringle from their lineups as Hill would warrant Top 7 consideration at his position alongside Demarcus Robinson and rookie Mecole Hardman in three-wide sets if active. Pringle would become a WR3 streamer and DFS cash game option only if Hill's shoulder fails during pregame warmups. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:44 pm

  • Emmanuel Sanders (knee) off injury report
    Emmanuel Sanders (knee) wasn't listed on the Broncos' final injury report.

    Advice: The Broncos have been limiting his practice reps early in the week, but Sanders is fully healthy. Sanders has a shy-away matchup with the Titans in Week 6. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:03 pm

  • Courtland Sutton (leg) off injury report
    Courtland Sutton (leg) was removed from the Week 6 injury report.

    Advice: This was expected after Sutton practiced fully the last two days. Even in a tough matchup with the Titans secondary, Sutton is a low-end WR2 for Week 6. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:44 pm

  • Tyreek Hill (clavicle) a game-time decision
    Coach Andy Reid said Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is a game-time decision for the Chiefs' Week 6 matchup against the Texans.

    Advice: Reid also noted that Hill worked with the scout team this week and a little bit with the offense as well. There's a real chance here for limited snaps if the electric WR is ultimately able to suit up. Of course, it doesn't take Hill many targets to rack up production thanks to his game-breaking ability, so don't hesitate in starting him in a matchup with a slate-high 55-point Vegas total.

  • 'Optimism' Tyreek (clavicle) returns Sunday
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, there is "optimism" Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will play against the Texans in Week 6.

    Advice: Hill has practiced on a limited basis the past two weeks. He's trending toward a Week 6 return, though he'll undergo a scan on his injured clavicle to make sure it's healed properly before getting the green light. Hill could be eased in coming off a month-long absence, though his matchup against the Texans is far too enticing for fantasy owners to pass up. Sunday's projected shootout in KC has a 55-point Vegas total, easily the highest on the slate. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:31 am

  • Emmanuel Sanders upgraded to 'full'
    Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

    Advice: The Broncos will continue to limit Sanders' practice reps, but he's not injured. Even with Courtland Sutton emerging and Joe Flacco under center, 32-year-old Sanders has forced his way back into the weekly WR3 mix. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:21 pm

  • Emmanuel Sanders has usual limited practice
    Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: This is the new normal for Sanders, who has been "limited" in practice early in the week and then has suited up for games. The Broncos are just playing it safe with their 32-year-old receiver by limiting his practice reps. Sanders will be ready for Week 6's game against the Titans. He'll be a flex option now that Courtland Sutton's role is growing. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:12 pm

  • Courtland Sutton (leg) limited on Wednesday
    Courtland Sutton (lower leg) was limited in practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Emmanuel Sanders was also limited with a knee injury. Both injuries are likely minor or just the Broncos limiting reps after a big road win, but they are worth monitoring on Thursday and Friday. Sutton will be a WR3 against the Titans on Sunday, assuming he's available. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:06 pm

  • Tyreek Hill (shoulder) limited on Wednesday
    Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Meanwhile Sammy Watkins (hamstring) sat out altogether. Coach Andy Reid mentioned it's currently a "timing thing" with Hill, meaning he's likely looking at a game-time call. If both Hill and Watkins are out, Byron Pringle enters the WR3 streaming fray following his 6/103/1 breakout in place of the latter on Sunday night. Hill returns to being a no-doubt WR1 if active.

  • Mahomes says ankle is fine, practices Wed.
    Patrick Mahomes (ankle) is practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: After tweaking it in the Sunday night loss to the Colts last week, Mahomes said he's fine. He should bounce back in a big way this week at home against the Texans with Tyreek Hill (collarbone) possibly rejoining the lineup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:41 am

  • Patrick Mahomes 'tweaked' ankle Sunday night
    Patrick Mahomes "tweaked" his ankle in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Colts but is expected to be fine.

    Advice: "Just reaggravated it a little bit there in the first half and then got stepped on in the second half," said Mahomes, who didn't look like himself but was still credited with 321 passing yards in Sunday night's defeat. "Obviously it's going to be a little sore tomorrow." The reigning MVP absorbed a season-high four sacks in the loss to Indy and was walking with a pronounced limp at one point, but nonetheless played all 61 of the Chiefs' offensive snaps. He'll surely have his practice reps rationed ahead of next week's expected shootout with Houston. Rotoworld.com Oct 7, 6:20 am

  • Travis Kelce picks up 70 yards on 10 targets
    Travis Kelce caught 4-of-10 targets for 70 yards in Week 5 against the Colts.

    Advice: Kelce’s 10 targets led the Chiefs. Kansas City’s offense had an off night with Sammy Watkins leaving early and Patrick Mahomes playing through an ankle injury, so it could have been a lot worse for Kelce. Kelce will remain a top-three tight end play for Week 6 against the Texans. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 9:12 pm

  • Demarcus Robinson held to 31 yards
    Demarcus Robinson caught 3-of-6 targets for 31 yards in Week 5 against the Colts.

    Advice: Robinson took a backset to Byron Pringle (nine targets) this week. The Chiefs offense got dominated in time of possession, and Robinson never really had a chance to get going with Patrick Mahomes playing hurt. Even with Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill banged up, Robinson won't be more than a risky FLEX for Week 6. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 9:11 pm

  • Byron Pringle steps up with Watkins sidelined
    Byron Pringle caught 6-of-9 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Colts.

    Advice: Pringle was forced into three-wide sets after Sammy Watkins (hamstring) left on the first series. He ended up leading the Chiefs in receiving, though most of his production came on the first drive. Tyreek Hill could be back next week, but Pringle will be worth a waiver add if Watkins misses time.

  • Mecole Hardman rebounds with 79 yards
    Mecole Hardman caught 4-of-6 targets for 79 yards in Week 5 against the Colts.

    Advice: Hardman made another start with Tyreek Hill sidelined. He saw fewer targets than Travis Kelce and Byron Pringle, but this was a step forward after a down Week 4. The Chiefs could be getting Tyreek Hill back next week but Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is dealing with another injury. Assuming Watkins sits, Hardman will remain in the FLEX mix against the Texans.

  • Damien Williams outsnaps McCoy in return
    Damien Williams rushed nine times for 23 yards in Week 5 against the Colts.

    Advice: Williams led the Chiefs in carries in his first game back. He didn’t do much with his touches, but gameflow played a role in that. Williams out-snapped LeSean McCoy by a wide margin and looks to be the touch-favorite going forward, but this is still a volatile situation. The Chiefs backfield is shaping up as a hot-hand situation. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 9:01 pm
