Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) took full practice reps all week. Ware is good to go to face the Steelers in tough conditions in Kansas City.

Chargers fire HC Mike McCoy

NFL.com - [Full Article]

After finishing dead last in the AFC West two years in a row, the Chargers are parting ways with head coach Mike McCoy.

The team confirmed the move on Sunday following San Diego's 37-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

With San Diego mulling a potential move to Los Angeles, the franchise has extra incentive to start fresh with a coach unlinked to the team's recent string of failure.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) OUT vs. Chargers

Fantasy Impact:

Ware was questionable and seemed to have a good shot to play this week but it out. Charcandrick West and Knile Davis should see a bulk of the workload against the Chargers with West likely the better play here.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hip, knee, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 17. With Gordon and Kenneth Farrow out, Ronnie Hillman and Andre Williams figure to work in some sort of timeshare against the Chiefs.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. Ware should be fine to play through the rib injury, though they’re calling him a game-time decision. The Chiefs are fighting for a first round bye, so it’s all hands on deck. If Ware can’t play, look for Charcandrick West to carry the load.

Chiefs WR Chris Conley (ankle) took full practice reps all week.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware has sore ribs

ESPN - [Full Article]

Lost in the various other story lines from Sunday night’s Kansas City Chiefs' win against Denver -- they clinched a playoff berth and kept alive their AFC West title hopes, Travis Kelce's huge game and Dontari Poe's pass -- was that running back Spencer Ware was well on his way to one of his best games of the season before leaving early in the fourth quarter with sore ribs.

Ware was on the sideline late in the game working with the Chiefs’ training staff as he attempted to work his way back into the game. But the Chiefs went with backup Charcandrick West as their featured back the rest of the way.

Fantasy Impact:

HC Andy Reid said Ware probably could have went back in, which is a good sign for his availability for Week 17 and the the playoffs. The team is still battling for the AFC West title and needs a win in San Diego next week. West would obviously see a lot more work if Ware can't go, as could Knile Davis. It's worth tracking Ware's practices this week leading up to Week 17.

Broncos TE A.J. Derby (concussion, out) and Virgil Green (concussion, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 16. The Broncos are down to Jeff Heuerman at tight end. He’d be a Sneaky Start, but the Chiefs are great at defending the position.

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris (foot) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week.

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris (foot) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin ACTIVE, as expected

QB Tyler Bray
RB Knile Davis
TE Ross Travis
LB Dadi Nicolas
OL Mike Person
CB DJ White
CB Kenneth Acker

Fantasy Impact:

He's not a dependable start given his injury and his poor production for most of the season, but the matchup isn't bad. His return will unsettle the recent snap counts for Tyreek Hill, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson. Of the three, Wilson probably takes the biggest hit.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) set to return

Wednesday, December 7, 2016, 7:11pm

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin appears ready to return to action for the Chiefs for Thursday’s game against the Raiders.

The final pregame injury report issued by the Chiefs on Wednesday lists Maclin as a full practice participant. Maclin hasn’t played since suffering a groin injury early in the Chiefs’ game against Jacksonville on Nov. 6.

Fantasy Impact:

Owners should keep their expectations in check. Groin injuries are difficult to play through and the team said he was not ready to play as recently as Sunday. Through eight weeks, Maclin was the #45 fantasy receiver, so he's a dicey WR4/WR5 start on Thursday.
