  Chiefs | Joe Mays to have surgery    Thu Aug 21, 04:36 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Joe Mays (wrist) will have surgery on his wrist, according to a source. Mays was hurt in last week's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. The timetable for his return was undisclosed.

Footballguys view: We don't know how long he's out and as he is supposed to be opposite Derrick Johnson, this could be an issue. Josh Mauga is behind him on the depth chart at Ourlads.com but the team could shift over James-Michael Johnson.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe misses practice    Thu Aug 21, 03:56 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Bowe's finger has been blamed for a lot of his drop issues this summer so while his quadriceps injury is a concern, we're more worried about his ability to catch the ball. We still see Bowe as a WR4. He has the ability to be so much more, but has never proven that he can put all that talent together.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles practices    Thu Aug 21, 03:54 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 21, but worked with the second- and scout-team offenses during practices. The team is not saying if Charles will play in the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: Charles is considered one of the top few fantasy running backs going into this season. The team will be cautious with him, but he should be 100% by Week 1.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles injury update    Mon Aug 18, 12:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) suffered a bruised foot when he twisted it after practice, according to head coach Andy Reid. Charles sat out of the Week 2 preseason game versus the Carolina Panthers as a precautionary measure, Reid said.

Footballguys view: This sounds like a minor issue for Charles. Fantasy owners should still be taking him off the board with the first or second overall pick in their fantasy drafts.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce impressing    Mon Aug 18, 09:52 AM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught a 43-yard touchdown strike in the second preseason game over the weekend. He has six catches for 136 yards on seven targets this preseason.

Footballguys view: Message! Kelce has Gronkowski-like talent, and he's been impressing throughout camp and into the preseason. Fantasy owners can pick up this value play at TE17 (13.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. The Chiefs lack weapons outside of Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe (if he cares). Kelce could be in for a role that makes him a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners.

  Chiefs | Junior Hemingway leaves game    Sun Aug 17, 09:25 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway (hip) suffered a hip injury during the second preseason game and will not return to the game.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs wide receiver depth chart is very thin and hurting at the top, and now it is hurting at the bottom, too. Intriguing 2013 UDFA Mark Harrison and 2014 UDFA Albert Wilson should get more play in the third preseason game among others if Hemingway can't go.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles sitting    Sun Aug 17, 05:41 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) will not play in the second preseason game due to a bruised foot. RB Knile Davis will start in his place.

Footballguys view: There's no outward indication that this is any more than a precaution. Remember the Jamaal Charles injury scare last summer? That was no reason to avoid him and this isn't either.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe suspended    Fri Aug 15, 12:16 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be suspended for one game for substance abuse, and he'll miss the season opener against the Tennessee Titans, according to a team source.

Footballguys view: This shouldn't affect his value in and of itself, but this news plus the news about his finger being "shot" according to head coach Andy Reid has cast a pall over his draft stock. He should still be considered if he falls to the double digit rounds as a #1 receiver. There is also news that his makes his 2014 8+ million dollar salary no longer guaranteed, so we have to consider the possibility that he doesn't make the roster, even though it would leave the Chiefs in a horrible spot at wide receiver.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe update    Fri Aug 15, 08:44 AM

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe's (finger) finger is 'shot', according to head coach Andy Reid. 'It's been thrown out of place about 15 times, and he's not catching the ball,' Reid said. 'But he's getting his work done. You can practice with that type of thing.'

Footballguys view: Bowe was coming on at the end of last year and he will get #1 wide receiver targets by default, but this is not the kind of news you want to hear if you were targeting him in the 8th or 9th round. He could still present value if he battles through the injury - and we all know other wide receivers are playing with fingers that have taken as much abuse as Bowe's - but it's harder to be optimistic about a bounceback now.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe in terrific shape    Wed Aug 13, 03:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is in terrific shape, according to wide receivers coach David Culley. 'He's in the best shape he's been in. I know from last year, this is completely different.'

Footballguys view: If Bowe cares, he can be terrific. He's the best receiver (by far) on the Chiefs roster, and Bowe should be targeted over 100 times this year. Bowe has a current ADP of WR41 (9.07) in 12-team PPR leagues. He finished the 2013 season as the 44th-best fantasy receiver.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't be scaled back    Sun Aug 10, 06:23 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' workload won't be scaled back by the team. Head coach Andy Reid said he's comfortable if Charles receives 320 touches for the third straight year, in large part because of the way Charles takes care of his body.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief here. Charles put together what may have been his best all-around season in 2013, setting career highs in receptions (70), receiving yards (693) and touchdowns (19)--and oh yeah, he rushed 259 times for 1,287 yards.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith doesn't like Andy Dalton's deal    Sat Aug 9, 09:08 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said he has no interest in signing a pay-as-you-go deal similar to the contract Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton just signed. 'I want to get something that's right that I'm going to play out, absolutely, and that's definitely a focus of mine,' Smith said Saturday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Smith is entering the final year of his contract with the Chiefs. The team should be concerned about signing Smith to a traditional long-term deal. Smith is a good starter, but he may not be the caliber of quarterback this team needs to contend for a championship.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson has proven to be a playmaker and has a good chance to make the team.

If the Chiefs have trouble defending the pass this year, Alex Smith and more importantly, Dwayne Bowe could see an increase in passing volume and downfield targets.

The safety position is a bit thin in KC, so they had better hope this is nothing serious.
