Tyreek Hill corralled five-of-eight targets for 77 yards and a touchdown while rushing three times for 13 yards Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Hill capped Kansas City’s opening drive with a 30-yard touchdown strike from Alex Smith. It was almost embarrassing how wide open he was. The 23-year-old has been ridiculously efficient this year, absorbing 16 of his 22 targets from Smith while averaging over 84 receiving yards per game. We’ll see how he handles Josh Norman next week against the Redskins.

Albert Wilson grabbed three-of-four targets for 18 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Wilson chipped in with a six-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter. It was a well-designed play with Alex Smith faking a handoff to Tyreek Hill before flipping a shovel pass to Wilson for the score. The touchdown was Wilson’s first of the year and the fifth of his four-year career. Despite his success Sunday, Wilson has done little to warrant fantasy attention this year and won’t be a recommended option next week against the Redskins.

Chris Conley failed to catch his lone target Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

The Chiefs didn’t do much passing on Sunday, airing it out a grand total of 21 times. Conley hasn’t been very involved in the early going, drawing a combined nine targets over three outings for Kansas City. Fantasy owners can probably skip him next week against the Redskins.
Sep 24 - 9:05 PM

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.
Sep 24 - 9:04 PM

Travis Kelce caught his only target for one yard Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Coming off a 103-yard effort in Week 2, Kelce was scarcely used in this one as the Chiefs rode impressive rookie Kareem Hunt to yet another victory. Perhaps Kelce can make it up to fantasy owners next week against the Redskins.
Sep 24 - 9:03 PM

Alex Smith completed 16-of-21 passes for 155 yards with two touchdowns and rushed twice for nine yards Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Smith pulled all the right strings on Sunday. He didn’t throw an incompletion until the third quarter and seemed to be in perfect sync with talented second-year receiver Tyreek Hill (five catches for 77 yards and a touchdown). Smith did face pressure from a swarming Chargers pass rush, taking five sacks for a loss of 33 yards including three by Melvin Ingram. He probably could have done more damage through the air but didn’t really need to with Kareem Hunt pacing the offense with another monster game on the ground (172 rushing yards). The Chiefs will try to improve to 4-0 next week against the Redskins.
Sep 24 - 9:02 PM

Kareem Hunt cruised to 172 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries while adding one catch for 11 yards Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Another week, another stellar performance by Hunt, who has gone over 100 yards from scrimmage in all three games this year. He’s the first rookie to begin his career with three straight 100-yard games since Matt Forte did the same thing back in 2008. The Chargers had no answer for Hunt, who spent the afternoon breaking off chunk gains with little to no resistance. He saved his best for last, icing the game with a masterful 69-yard touchdown dash in the fourth quarter. Through three weeks, Hunt has averaged an absurd 8.53 yards per carry with six touchdowns. He’s also on pace for 2,138 rushing yards, which would break Eric Dickerson’s single-season record set in 1983. And to think that if Spencer Ware hadn’t torn his PCL, Hunt could be buried on the bench right now. The Toledo product will look to continue his incredible run next week on Monday Night Football against the Redskins.
Sep 24 - 8:56 PM

Chiefs OLB Dee Ford left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Chargers with a hip injury and will not return.

It's a new injury for Ford, who was limited by a shoulder issue at practice this week. He recorded one tackle before exiting in the third quarter.
Sep 24 - 6:50 PM

Chiefs declared WR WR Jehu Chesson, QB Tyler Bray, OL Parker Ehinger, LB Ukeme Eligwe, DL Jarvis Jenkins, OL Mitch Morse and CB DJ White inactive for Week 3 against the Chargers.

Ehinger is out with a knee issue while Morse has a foot injury. The rest are healthy scratches. Dee Ford (shoulder), Justin Houston (illness) and Reggie Ragland (knee) are all active for KC.
Sep 24 - 3:04 PM

Chiefs DT Chris Jones was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 2.

Jones had a monster game against the Eagles, registering three sacks, two forced fumbles, an interception, and one batted pass. He did it all while playing just 44% of the snaps. Jones was the 37th pick in the 2016 draft.
Sep 20 - 9:43 AM

Chiefs C Mitch Morse (foot) does not need surgery but will be sidelined a "few weeks."

Zach Fulton will handle snapping duties for however long Morse is out.
Sep 18 - 6:17 PM

Chiefs C Mitch Morse suffered a sprained foot Week 2 against the Eagles.

Morse will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis and determine the severity. If confirmed, Morse will almost certainly miss this week and could be out multiple games.
Sep 18 - 12:36 PM

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-10 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Eagles.

It's a nice rebound after Kelce was held to 40 yards in the opener. Kelce got off to a fast start with 56 yards on the opening drive. He jumped over multiple players on a highlight catch-and-run shovel pass for his touchdown. Kelce is locked in as Alex Smith's No. 1 option and should continue to see heavy targets. He'll get a matchup with the Chargers in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:25 PM

Chris Conley caught four passes for 55 yards in Week 2 against the Eagles.

Conley finished with more yards than Tyreek Hill, but was third on the team in targets. He doesn't have much upside as the No. 3 option in a run-first offense. Conley has a matchup with the Chargers in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:19 PM

Tyreek Hill caught 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards in Week 2 against the Eagles.

He also had one carry for six yards. It was a quiet game for Hill, but he finished behind only Travis Kelce (10) in targets. Alex Smith overthrew Hill for what would have been a 40-yard TD in the first half. There's some boom-or-bust to Hill's game, but he's one of the top big-play threats in the league. Hill is a FLEX play for Week 3 against the Chargers.
