Date:

Donnie Avery (groin) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

The Chiefs' "No. 2 receiver" is off the radar in all formats of fantasy.
Dec 11 - 6:08 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Avery was active last week, but Jason Avant played the majority of snaps opposite Dwayne Bowe. It's possible he could be dealing with a setback. Avery isn't a fantasy consideration in any format for Week 15.
Dec 10 - 6:15 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Coming off an ineffective return, Avery isn't a fantasy concern in any format for Week 14.
Dec 4 - 5:22 PM

Donnie Avery had one catch for 20 yards in Week 13 against the Broncos.

Avery started opposite Dwayne Bowe after missing the last seven weeks. He lost a fumble on his only catch of the game. Jason Avant played in three-wide sets and finished with more targets.
Dec 1 - 1:29 AM

Donnie Avery (groin) is active for Sunday night's Week 13 game against the Broncos.

Avery will start opposite Dwayne Bowe after missing the last seven games. Inactive for the Chiefs are QB Aaron Murray, CB Jamell Fleming, C Eric Kush, OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, WR Junior Hemingway, TE Phillip Supernaw, and DL Nick Williams
Nov 30 - 7:05 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) is listed as probable for Week 13.

The Chiefs will finally have some semblance of a No. 2 receiver this week. They'll need Avery (and Travis Kelce) to step up Sunday against Denver.
Nov 28 - 4:03 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Avery should return this week after missing the last seven games. He'll start opposite Dwayne Bowe, with Jason Avant likely getting time in three-wide sets.
Nov 26 - 5:57 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Raiders.

Frankie Hammond, Junior Hemingway, and Albert Wilson will continue to be bit players opposite Dwayne Bowe. No Chiefs receiver is a legitimate fantasy option.
Nov 19 - 12:58 PM

Donnie Avery returned to Chiefs practice Tuesday, getting in a limited session.

It's a positive sign for Avery's Week 12 status, though he got in some "limited" sessions last week before being ruled out against the Seahawks. Even if Avery does return against the Raiders, he'll be off the radar in all formats of fantasy, including daily leagues.
Nov 18 - 5:11 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) missed Chiefs practice Monday.

Avery can't get over the hump after sports hernia surgery. Due in part to a lack of passing-game weapons, the 2014 Chiefs have morphed into one of the league's run-heaviest teams under usually pass-first coach Andy Reid.
Nov 17 - 1:10 PM

Chiefs declared WR Donnie Avery, TE Anthony Fasano, WR A.J. Jenkins, CB Chris Owens, CB Jamell Fleming, G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and QB Aaron Murray inactive for Week 11 against the Seahawks.

Avery has been dealing with a groin injury all season. Jenkins (shoulder), Owens (knee) and Fleming (hamstring) are week to week.
Nov 16 - 11:36 AM

Donnie Avery (groin) has been ruled out for Week 11.

He still can't get his groin right after undergoing in-season sports hernia surgery. With A.J. Jenkins also ruled out, the Chiefs will start Frankie Hammond at wide receiver against Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell.
Nov 14 - 2:12 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

It's the same pattern Avery followed last week before sitting out, but he should be ready to return as the Chiefs' No. 2 receiver. Avery remains well off the fantasy radar.
Nov 13 - 4:53 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Avery returned to practice last week and should be on track to play against Seattle. He'll start opposite Dwayne Bowe, with A.J. Jenkins and Junior Hemingway playing in four-wide sets.
