Chiefs WR Chris Conley (Achilles) 'pretty close' to normal

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

With Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Kareem Hunt, and Travis Kelce in the lineup, Chiefs opponents are going to have to make some tough calls about how to deploy their defenders this season.

Those choices could leave less-than-stifling coverage on wide receiver Chris Conley, who missed most of last season after tearing his Achilles in the fifth game of the season. Conley has been working on the field throughout OTAs and that’s gone well enough to leave him feeling like he’s nearly back to where he wants to be.

Fantasy Impact:

Conley was quoted in the story as saying he's "feeling really good" and things are "pretty close back to normal." As the story pointed out, it's all good news for new QB Patrick Mahomes who will have a lot of speed at WR to work with.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. San Francisco 49ers

While Patrick Mahomes has been tearing up the NFL, Kareem Hunt has been putting up modest numbers. He's essentially a non-factor as a receiver, hauling in just one pass through two games (although it was a TD). But he's been fine on the ground, rushing for 49 and 75 yards, respectively.

He gets a decent matchup this week against the 49ers, who have allowed at least 80 yards rushing to backs in each game this season. Look for Hunt to continue to get his touches and make an impact, especially against a favorable opponent. We like him as a strong RB1 play this week.
