Charcandrick West (illness) is practicing in full for the Wild Card Round.

West was held out in Week 17, likely as a precaution. He will be ready to go as Kareem Hunt's backup against the Titans.
Jan 2 - 5:37 PM

Charcandrick West (flu) has been ruled out for Week 17 against Denver.

It's a missed opportunity for West, who was in line to start with Kansas City resting Kareem Hunt. Akeem Hunt (questionable, shoulder) should see the majority of carries against the Broncos.

Charcandrick West (flu) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

He didn't practice on Thursday or Friday, raising serious questions about West's availability against the Broncos. Akeem Hunt is also listed as questionable, and Kareem Hunt seems unlikely to play in the meaningless Week 17 game.

Charcandrick West (illness) did not practice Thursday.

Normally, a backup running back sitting out because of an illness would not be newsworthy, but West stands to see a big workload in the season finale if the Chiefs decide to sit Kareem Hunt. If that happens, West will be an upside play in DFS tournaments.

Charcandrick West (personal) returned to practice.

West sat out last week for personal reasons, but he is back with the team this week. He will back up Kareem Hunt against the Raiders.

Chiefs declared RB Charcandrick West, QB Tyler Bray, OL Jordan Devey, OL Parker Ehinger, LB Dee Ford, LB Tamba Hali and S Eric Murray inactive for Week 13 against the Jets.

West (personal) was ruled out on Friday, leaving Akeem Hunt to back up Kareem Hunt at running back. Albert Wilson (hamstring) is active for KC.

Charcandrick West (personal) is out for Week 13 against the Jets.

Per beat writer Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs will not be promoting anyone from the practice squad, which means Kareem Hunt and Akeem Hunt will be KC's only running backs for Week 13. West had been getting some work on passing downs, so his absence could give Hunt (Kareem, not Akeem) a slight boost on Sunday.

Charcandrick West (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 8 against the Broncos.

West missed last week's short-week loss to the Raiders. Although West is Kareem Hunt's primary backup he offers no standalone value in fantasy leagues.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 05:38:00 PM

Charcandrick West (concussion) is expected to return for Week 8 against the Broncos.

Coach Andy Reid said so, while the team also telegraphed as much by cutting C.J. Spiller (again). West has been lightly used behind All-Rookie workhorse Kareem Hunt.

Charcandrick West (concussion) is out for Week 7 against the Raiders.

It'll be Akeem Hunt working as the change-of-pace to Kareem Hunt Thursday night.

Charcandrick West exited Week 6 against the Steelers with a possible concussion.

West left after taking a big hit just before halftime. It was announced he was being evaluated for a concussion after the break. He had one catch for nine yards before leaving.

Charcandrick West caught two touchdowns in Week 5 against Houston.

West had just 12 yards on his catches. He scored on two red-zone dump offs in the second quarter. West had a small role behind Kareem Hunt outside if his touchdowns. He has just 15 touches through five games.

Charcandrick West lost a yard on two carries and while contributing two catches for 14 yards on two targets Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

West saw a couple of change-of-pace carries in relief of Kareem Hunt, though obviously his contributions were minimal. He coughed up a fumble in the fourth quarter, though the Chiefs were able to recover it. At this point, West isn't getting enough use to warrant fantasy consideration. That’s unlikely to change with Hunt leading the league in both rushing yards and yards per carry.

Charcandrick West scored a 21-yard touchdown on his lone carry in Kanas City's Week 1 win over the Patriots.

West added a four-yard reception. West surely enjoyed finding the end zone, but there was no committee in Spencer Ware's absence. Kareem Hunt out-touched West 22-2, and out-gained him 246-25. A star was born for coach Andy Reid, rendering West a pure handcuff who lacks standalone fantasy value.
