  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes works with second-team    Sun Aug 13, 04:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes worked with the second-team offense during practice Sunday, Aug. 13. Head coach Andy Reid said Mahomes will work with second-team offense during practice this week.

Footballguys view: Mahomes is clearly the quarterback of the future, but this is Alex Smith's team...for now. We could see the Chiefs make the move to Mahomes sooner than some think, but it will all depend on the team's record and how quickly Mahomes can develop.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill standing out    Thu Aug 10, 05:41 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill 'has been the star of camp,' according to the Kansas City Star's Terez A. Paylor.

Footballguys view: Hill had a very good season in 2016 and ended up the 15th fantasy wide receiver based on some great games. Clearly fantasy GM's are expecting him to playing very well. Current getting selected as the 23rd wide receiver in drafts. We feel that is less about Hill and more about the limitations of his quarterback, and certainly feel that he 10 out-produce that ADP.

  Chiefs | KC happy with Patrick Mahomes' progress    Thu Aug 10, 05:23 PM

Kansas City Chiefs rookie QB Patrick Mahomes has been 'impressive' in camp, 'making at least one eye-opening throw per practice and has been fun to watch,' according to the Kansas City Star's Terez A. Paylor, who added 'everyone in the organization, from the highest level on down, is happy with his progress.'

Footballguys view: With notes like this from camp, we do wonder how much rope Alex Smith will get. On the other hand Mahomes can be a little bit too much of a gunslinger, and the Chiefs have playoff and Super Bowl aspirations. So they may not be willing to roll with the rookie.

  Chiefs | Cairo Santos expected to return soon    Tue Aug 8, 10:42 PM

Kansas City Chiefs PK Cairo Santos (groin) is not expected to miss much time despite suffering a groin injury earlier in the week, according to Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: It should be a minor injury, but we want to see Santos return and get through the first few days after that, and possibly even take kicks in a game before we feel he is safe to draft again in your fantasy leagues.

  Chiefs | Kansas City adds Sam Ficken    Tue Aug 8, 09:07 PM

Free-agent PK Sam Ficken (Jaguars) signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday, Aug. 8. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived WR Corey Washington.

Footballguys view: Cairo Santos is battling a groin injury and the team needs a kicker. It sounds like the injury is minor, but for now take Santos off of your kicker draft board until there is a clear sign he is back and over the injury.

  Chiefs | Kareem Hunt seeing more time with first-team    Tue Aug 8, 12:02 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is seeing increased work with the first-team as time goes on and could potentially work himself into the starting running back this preseason, according to ArrowheadPride.com's Pete Sweeney.

Footballguys view: Hunt might be worth more than Spencer Ware if he starts, but Ware isn't going away and this will remain a committee in some shape or form no matter who takes the first touch. Hunt could be a value at his current ADP, but he won't be a season changer unless Ware gets hurt. Ware could be a value at his current ADP, but only if Hunt's momentum slows down.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce works on side    Mon Aug 7, 08:32 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) worked out on the sidelines during practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Kelce's knee is something to watch, as he had microfracture surgery on it a few years back. As long as he can get back on the practice field soon, we'll be able to chalk this one up to typical camp reconditioning, as Kelce was on the shelf this offseason after shoulder surgery.

  Chiefs | Cairo Santos leaves practice    Mon Aug 7, 08:24 PM

Kansas City Chiefs PK Cairo Santos (groin) left practice early Monday, Aug. 7, because of a groin injury.

Footballguys view: The team is working out John Lunsford. Perhaps this is just to have a kicker while Santos nurses his injury, but for now take Santos off of your kicker board. If we hear that it is just a minor injury, he'll be safe to draft again.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Travis Kelce (knee) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Kelce had microfracture surgery early in his NFL career. This is a routine issue for him, but if it extends for weeks instead of days, it could be something that affects him to a greater degree during the season than it has in recent years.

  Chiefs | Big year coming for Tyreek Hill?    Sun Aug 6, 08:26 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is headed for a 'huge, huge year,' according to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star, and Paylor believes Hill could top 75 receptions this year.

Footballguys view: Hill's role is going to grow and he should be able to maintain WR2/WR3 numbers at least. Even if he doesn't return to his WR1 level of production from the second half of the season, Hill is a good bet to return expected value on a fifth round pick.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce remains sidelined    Sun Aug 6, 04:40 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: We aren't worried yet but the fact that he has been dealing with knee swelling since camp opened, though it's a condition he's dealt with on and off since he was a rookie and had microfracture surgery. Given that history, and since he still managed back to back 800-plus yard seasons in 2014 and 2015, then topped 1100 yards in 2016, we think he'll get through this. The only thing we'd like more of is touchdowns, as he has averaged just five a season since entering the league. He's still worth his 32 ADP as the second tight end off the board in drafts.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce dealing with knee swelling    Fri Aug 4, 02:44 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) has dealt with knee swelling on occasion throughout training camp, although head coach Andy Reid believes he'll be fine because it only flares up 'every once in a while.'

Footballguys view: They'll be careful with him, but don't worry much about Kelce. He's still on track to be a huge factor in this offense and a top fantasy tight end in 2017.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill, Alex Smith sporting rapport    Fri Aug 4, 01:18 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith and WR Tyreek Hill has been a 'great' connection all camp long, according to Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs have come out and said they are going to emphasize Hill in the offense and it appears to be paying off. His touchdown rate was fluky last year, but with a larger role in the offense, he can more than make up for regression to the mean and provide profit on taking him at his fifth-round ADP.

  Chiefs | Charcandrick West has ankle injury    Mon Jul 31, 12:13 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) is out of practice Monday, July 31, due to an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: West was competing for a backup spot behind Spencer Ware. Now, it looks like rookie Kareem Hunt will push for snaps as the change-of-pace back. A third-round pick out of Toledo, Hunt has a good all-purpose skill set and can contribute as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. Hunt is good enough to eventually push for the starting job too.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill taking it to next level    Mon Jul 31, 09:22 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is taking his game to the next level, according to beat writer B.J. Kissel. Hill made multiple contested catches in tight space Sunday, July 30, and he fought off defenders for leverage. 'He was hungry when he first got here,' CB Marcus Peters said. 'They think he is just fast, but he is a really technically sound receiver. He is just a little dude, but he is in a big man's body. He is one of the best receivers in our league right now, so you have to get work.'

Footballguys view: What we saw last year from Hill may just be the tip of the iceberg in terms of his ability as a receiver. Hill's speed isn't going to take anyone by surprise this year, so he'll have to find other ways to get open. He was the no15 fantasy receiver in 2016, but he'll have to be more well rounded in what he does if he wants to improve much on that mark in 2017.

  Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson getting first-team reps    Sat Jul 29, 11:28 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson has earned a number of first-string reps alongside Chris Conley and Tyreek Hill so far at training camp.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Florida in 2016, Robinson has fantastic straight-line speed and run after the catch ability. He was just a special teams player as a rookie but has a chance to do something as a receiver this year. However, even if he wins the no3 job in Kansas City it won't be fantasy relevant.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith lands $2 million    Thu Jul 27, 08:24 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith will collect a $2 million check for reporting to camp Thursday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Smith may have Pat Mahomes lurking about, but the rookie isn't ready for prime time, so his job is safe this year. However, while he is durable and consistent for an NFL quarterback, he produces very little in the way of fantasy points, and his ADP hangs at a well-deserved 162 overall, 26th quarterback off the board in early drafts.
