Chiefs TE Travis Kelce recovering from shoulder surgery

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce recently underwent surgery on his shoulder, Chiefs coach Andy Reid told The Star at the NFL Combine.

“Trav had his shoulder done — he had it cleaned up,” Reid said Wednesday.

When asked if it was a major injury, Reid shook his head.

“No, I don’t think so,” Reid said. “He’ll probably miss some time throughout the offseason, but he’ll be ready, I believe, for camp.”

Fantasy Impact:

After finishing #6 as a rookie and #8 as a sophomore (in PPR formats), Kelce was the top overall tight end in 2016, though he was #2 in per game average behind Rob Gronkowski. Although his usage isn't as consistent as we'd like, he's primed for another big year in Andy Reid's offense.

Chiefs to release RB Jamaal Charles

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The Chiefs are releasing RB Jamaal Charles, the expected move given his cap number and their signings. He’s healthy after two surgeries.

Fantasy Impact:

Charles is on the wrong side of 30 and is coming off of two knee surgeries. Still, other than 2016, he has averaged at least 5.0 YPC every season and should receive a good amount of attention on the free agent market. The move boosts Spencer Ware's stock, as he's the likely RB1 in Kansas City, pending the draft and free agency.

The Chiefs have signed RB C.J. Spiller.

Fantasy Impact:

Spiller has bounced around the league since leaving the Bills. If he makes the team, he'll serve as depth behind Spencer Ware and Jamaal Charles.

Reid: Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill could 'double' his snaps in 2017

Friday, January 27, 2017, 10:39am

Sporting News - [Full Article]

Fantasy football players take note: Tyreek Hill could average as many as 70 snaps a game as a wide receiver and returner in 2017.

So says the coach of Kansas City’s rookie sensation.

“He was averaging 35 plays a game (in 2016),” Andy Reid told co-host Kirk Morrison and me Thursday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Maybe he can double that or at least take it up a couple notches and allow him to get in more in a starting role.”

Fantasy Impact:

Per 4for4's Player Snap App, among players who played at least 40% of their team's snaps, Hill ranked first in fantasy points per snap in both standard and PPR formats. He was the #11 fantasy receiver (PPR) after his team's Week 5 bye.

Chargers fire HC Mike McCoy

Sunday, January 1, 2017, 9:27pm

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.

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.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

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.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

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

Monday, December 26, 2016, 4:28pm

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.

Related players: Knile Davis

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.
