Kansas City Chiefs standout receiver Tyreek Hill had to be transported to a local Jacksonville hospital and is expected to miss "a few weeks" after suffering a shoulder injury during Sunday's 40-26 win over the Jaguars, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder updated reporters on Hill's status following the win, detailing the precautions they took with the star wide receiver.
"[Hill] had a sternoclavicular joint injury which is where your clavicle comes into your sternum," Burkholder said. "Those can be injured coming out the front, up top or in the back. If it goes posteriorly or back it becomes a medical issue for us so that we worry that there's more problems. His came back posteriorly and he didn't have any medical issues but we still transported him to Baptist Medical Center [Jacksonville] and we turned his care over to Brett Frykberg who is an ortho-trauma physician."
Watkins had a huge day in Week 1 and will likely be a popular add this week. Kelce could also benefit from more targets but so could RBs Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy. Williams had six catches on the day while McCoy added one. Hardman, Thomas and Robinson all move up a spot on the depth chart at WR.
KC WR DeAnthony Thomas - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Oakland Raiders
DeAnthony Thomas has made himself fantasy relevant now, scoring a touchdown in back-to-back games. While Thomas is no doubt an explosive player, getting more playing time due to Chris Conley’s injury, he’s producing on limited touches. His touchdown two weeks ago was his only offensive touch of the game, and last week he had 61 yards, 57 of which came on one play.
He’s not reliable enough to really be a trustworthy option in fantasy.
