  Chiefs | Darwin Thompson's role growing    Thu Aug 15, 09:20 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson has been receiving more first-team reps in recent practices, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Thompson could push Carlos Hyde off the roster if he continues to come on, along with Darrel Williams. This depth chart is still unsettled in a very valuable fantasy backfield.

  Chiefs | No practice for Sammy Watkins    Wed Aug 14, 02:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, because of an illness.

Footballguys view: Watkins has an illness but nothing major. As healthy as he's been in some time, Watkins is trying to make it a full 16-game season for the first time since 2014. He has a strong rapport with QB Patrick Mahomes and is a boom/bust WR3/flex for Fantasy GMs in 2019.

  Chiefs | Darwin Thompson totals 51 yards in debut    Sun Aug 11, 01:48 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson carried five times for 22 yards and scored on his lone reception - a 29-yard catch - in the team's preseason opener versus the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Thompson showed enough to be considered a factor in the Chiefs backfield going forward. He might be the #3 back to open the season, but this has been a moving target with whiplash changes in pecking order under Andy Reid. The Chiefs backfield remains one of the most productive in the league no matter who they plug in.

  Chiefs | Mecole Hardman scores in opener    Sat Aug 10, 11:50 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman caught two passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in a 38-17 preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Hardman's speed was evident and he will make a very difficult to defend passing game even more perplexing for opponents. He should be on your late round target list with the potential for the easiest matchup and least attention of any Chiefs target.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes to play Saturday    Thu Aug 8, 12:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will start in team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 10, and will be followed by Chad Henne, Kyle Shurmur and Chase Litton in the quarterback rotation.

Footballguys view: We should see Mahomes for a drive...maybe two in the Chiefs first preseason game. We're excited to see what Mahomes can do for an encore this year after setting the league on fire in 2018.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams returns to practice    Wed Aug 7, 09:51 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Good news for Williams here. Williams is the top back and set to produce in a big way for Fantasy GMs. However, he needs to stay healthy and not open any sort of opportunity for Carlos Hyde to do more in 2019. Williams has a current ADP of RB12 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams has support    Sun Aug 4, 08:39 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) remains the lead back and will be given time to recover, according to offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. 'He's the starter,'' Bieniemy said. 'We need to make sure than Damien continues to do the things he needs to do in order to help himself be ready when called upon.''

Footballguys view: More than his status on the depth chart, this injury is worrisome for his ability to hold up all year under a feature back workload. Williams is still worth a third round pick on the upside of his 2018 finish and the quality of the backfield, but there is plenty of risk to taking him with a premium pick.

  Chiefs | Carlos Hyde making most of reps    Sun Aug 4, 12:12 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde has seen increased reps with the first team with RB Damien Williams currently sidelined with a hamstring injury. 'Carlos has done a nice job,' head coach Andy Reid said. 'He's getting a lot of reps and he's taking advantage of them.'

Footballguys view: One Chiefs beat writer and Gregg Rosenthal both raised the possibility of Hyde not making the team, but these positive words from the coach seem to downplay that doomsday scenario. He still deserves to be the second Chiefs back off of the board, but Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams need to stay on our waiver wire watch lists, and maybe even on our late round target lists in deeper leagues.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams remains sidelined    Sat Aug 3, 03:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 3, and has not practiced since the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Andy Reid sounded a little frustrated and it's fair to wonder if Williams status as the clear starter won't get tarnished if this absence lasts much longer. It's about time for his ADP to slide a little unless he gets back on the field pronto.

  Chiefs | Hardman misses end of practice    Fri Aug 2, 05:17 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (illness) left practice early Friday, Aug. 2, because of an illness.

Footballguys view: Hardman is the speedy rookie from Georgia the Chiefs added in the 2019 NFL draft. He should be back soon when he's over this illness.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Wednesday, July 31, but head coach Andy Reid said Hill could be on the field Friday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Hill suffered a bruised quad on Tuesday and sent panic throughout Chiefs Kingdom when he was carted off the practice field. Good thing our buddy Adam Schefter calmed everyone down, reporting accurately about the injury and that Hill should be fine. Hill may not get a ton of work in the preseason but he should return to training camp soon enough.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams remains idle    Tue Jul 30, 09:37 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) doesn't appear to be participating in practice Tuesday, July 30.

Footballguys view: There's no reason to see this as a long term issue as long as Williams returns to practice without incident soon. For now, we wait for that event before returning to our previous stances on Williams' value. If you are drafting right now, it's reasonable to move him down within his tier.

  Chiefs | Mitchell Schwartz leaves practice    Mon Jul 29, 07:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs OT Mitchell Schwartz (back) left practice early Monday, July 29, because he was dealing with back problems, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Schwartz is one of the most important members of this offensive line, so we'll be watching to see if this lingers and threatens his playing time going into the season or appears to be a long term concern

  Chiefs | Bashaud Breeland sidelined    Mon Jul 29, 05:00 PM

Kansas City Chiefs CB Bashaud Breeland (thumb) injured his thumb on the first day of training camp and has yet to return to practice, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs already lost their possible #4 corner when Keith Reaser went down. Breeland is slated to be in the top three, so they need him to get back on the field as soon as possible. This is going to be one of the weakest secondaries in the league.

  Chiefs | Keith Reaser may have torn tendon    Mon Jul 29, 01:25 PM

Kansas City Chiefs CB Keith Reaser (ankle) is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles tendon Monday, July 29, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Reaser was an AAF refugee, but slated to be as high as the team's fourth corner. This only increases the chances that the secondary will be a weakness this year even though he was merely depth. The Chiefs didn't have any to spare to begin with.

  Chiefs | Damien Williams tweaks hamstring    Sun Jul 28, 09:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (hamstring) left practice early with a hamstring issue Sunday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Williams hasn't been a lead back for a full season, so there are some doubts about his ability to live up to ADP despite the perfect situation in Kansas City and his late season success. If he misses a week or less and returns to the field, we won't worry, but that is not a given.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill working on life skills    Sun Jul 28, 01:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill said Sunday, July 28, he had a long conversation with team owner Clark Hunt after being cleared to rejoin the team and admitted 'I have to work on my life skills.'

Footballguys view: Hill is still a risk to run afoul of the law and league policies, but he is fully participating and not missing any time this year. He has #1 fantasy receiver upside, but it can all fall apart at any moment. He'll be going in the late first/early second in drafts.
