Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill to play Thursday night

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:57pm

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, "Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, listed as questionable for Thursday night’s game vs Charges, will be playing, per source."

Fantasy Impact:

This is great news for the entire offense. Hill will remain in his usual role as a fantasy WR1.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:48pm

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot, out) did not practice Wednesday. Conley will continue to play big snaps with Watkins out, but as he reminded us in Week 14 (with two catches for 13 yards), opportunity does not always equal production.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:48pm

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Hill is dealing with a couple of injuries but is expected to play against the Chargers. He’ll likely be shadowed by Casey Hayward. Hill has produced good fantasy lines—7-169-2, 5-88-1 and 5-77-1—in his last three matchups with the Chargers.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:48pm

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring, doubtful) did not practice Wednesday. Look for Damien Williams to lead this backfield in touches with Darrel Williams as a change-of-pace back. The newly signed Charcandrick West may be mixed in as well. Damien is a fantasy RB2.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:48pm

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (left wrist) practiced fully Wednesday. No worries here.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware doubtful for Thursday night

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 4:03pm

Chiefs official injury report

The Chiefs have listed running back Spencer Ware (hamstring, shoulder) as doubtful for Thursday night's game.

Fantasy Impact:

John Paulsen says, "With Spencer Ware doubtful, Damien Williams figures to serve as the lead back for the Chiefs against the Chargers. Last week, he turned 12 touches into 30 yards and two touchdowns. Darrel Williams should back up Damien with the newly-signed Charcandrick West just getting back up to speed. Darrel showed some ability in the preseason and could garner 5-10 touches as Damien’s backup."

Chiefs WR Kelvin Benjamin likely won't see extended time

KansasCity.com - [Full Article]

It’s unlikely Kelvin Benjamin will play an extended amount of time on Thursday, but the Chiefs’ offense may need help at wide receiver with Sammy Watkins sidelined with a foot injury and leading receiver Tyreek Hill limited in practice this week after sustaining a heel injury last weekend against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Benjamin had his first practice last Friday, but could factor in against the Chargers. He also may not even be active. Obviously he can't be trusted as a fantasy option just yet.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) doesn't practice Tuesday

Tuesday, December 11, 2018, 5:48pm

Sports Illustrated - [Full Article]

Spencer Ware was out because of the shoulder on Tuesday, as well as a hamstring issue that popped up in the win over the Ravens.

Related players: Damien Williams

Fantasy Impact:

Ware could still play in Week 15, but Wednesday’s practice is now an imperative for him. If he misses that session, fantasy owners will have to plan on going in a different direction, as the story said. Williams may be a guy to add if he's still on your wire.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (knee) to be game-time call

Tuesday, December 11, 2018, 5:15pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon said he expects the decision on whether he plays Thursday night in a nationally televised game against the Kansas City Chiefs to go all the way until game time.

Related players: Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson

Fantasy Impact:

Gordon said he feels better than he did last week but the decision would be a mutual one between Gordon, Chargers brass and the medical staff. With Ekeler suffering a stinger and looking doubtful for Thursday, Jackson would either be the team's RB2, or the bellcow if Gordon can't go.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) practices Tuesday

Tuesday, December 11, 2018, 5:10pm

Adam Teicher on Twitter - [Full Article]

Tyreek Hill will practice today for the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

Teicher went on to say, "We'll see later how much he does," meaning Hill could be limited. But, it's at least a good sign he's back on a short week. Hill told Peter King his foot was 'bad' but signs Monday pointed to his injury being not that serious.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's foot injury 'nothing serious'

Monday, December 10, 2018, 4:23pm

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

A further examination of the foot injury that Chiefs’ WR Tyreek Hill sustained Sunday showed “nothing serious” and he now will be considered “day to day”, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Earlier today we reported Hill said the injury was 'bad' when talking to Peter King after the game against the Ravens. But, this update seems like good news, especially since Hill was able to continue playing in Week 14. The Chiefs play this Thursday night and perhaps this news at least makes Hill a possibility to suit up.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill says foot injury is 'bad'

Monday, December 10, 2018, 11:52am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

And Tyreek Hill was a wounded animal. “My foot’s bad,” he’d say after the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite the injury, Hill, who was in and out of the game, stilled collected eight catches for 139 yards. It's possibly good news that Hill was able to play through the injured foot and still put up fantasy numbers. But, now we'll have to see how his foot reacts early this week. The bad news is the Chiefs play Thursday night so it's a quick turnaround.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill, RB Spencer Ware return after injuries

Sunday, December 9, 2018, 6:08pm

Fox 4 Kansas City - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill and running back Spencer Ware both returned in Kansas City’s game against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact:

Hill hurt his heel late in the second quarter and went to the locker room ahead of his teammates before halftime. He also hurt his wrist in the first half, though he played through that injury. Ware hurt his right shoulder.

Friday, December 7, 2018, 7:05pm

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris (knee, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 14.
