  Chiefs | Alex Smith to sign extension     Sun Aug 31, 06:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $68 million with $45 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs are locking in Smith for the foreseeable future. We'll see if Smith can continue to develop under Andy Reid in the Chiefs system. The team will continue to have a strong run presence with Jamaal Charles leading the way. This will help Smith play better and keep defenses honest.

  Chiefs | Aaron Murray could land on IR    Thu Aug 28, 12:32 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Aaron Murray (knee) could land on the Reserve/Injured list, in the opinion of Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.

Footballguys view: When Murray took snaps at the start of training camp it made him ineligible for the PUP list which means this is pretty much the only way the team can keep him as well as Alex Smith, Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray. While Murray has been coming along all right in camp, the team must feel he's not quite ready to step in a an emergency quarterback compared to Bray. At most he is a fantasy staff for dynasty, though he has starting quarterback upside down the road.

  Chiefs | Two placed on IR    Wed Aug 27, 06:32 PM

Kansas City Chiefs OT Ryan McKee (undisclosed) and CB Damond Smith (undisclosed) both were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Aug. 27.


  Chiefs | Mike McGlynn signed    Wed Aug 27, 11:59 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free-agent OG Mike McGlynn (Redskins). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived C Ben Gottschalk.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs offensive line has a lot of turnover from last year, including a four-game suspension for presumptive starting tackle Donald Stephenson. Jamaal Charles made the offensive line look a lot better, so it's not something that should scare you away from him in the top 5 picks.

  Chiefs | Frankie Hammond to start    Wed Aug 27, 08:25 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Frankie Hammond Jr. is likely to start in place of suspended WR Dwayne Bowe in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Hammond is a good pickup in deep dynasty to see if he hits in Week 1 to earn a larger role going forward in a very thin Chiefs wide receiver corps. The former Florida receiver has good straight line speed and quickness and could be an upgrade from Donnie Avery if Avery can't get over the dropsies that have plagued his career.

  Chiefs | May keep two kickers    Wed Aug 27, 06:06 AM

Because Kansas City Chiefs PK Ryan Succop and Cairo Santos have been equally effective in the preseason, a league source indicated the Chiefs may keep both kickers on the roster.

Footballguys view: This is another of many murky kicker situations to avoid in your draft.

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.
