Chiefs OLB Dee Ford suffered a groin injury Week 3 against the 49ers.

"He strained his groin, and we'll just see how he does in the next day or so," coach Andy Reid said after the game. "He'll have an MRI tomorrow, and then we'll go from there." Already thin on pass rushers, the Chiefs need Ford healthy for their trip to Denver next Monday night.

Sammy Watkins hauled in 5-of-8 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

He added another 20 yards on two carries. Watkins' role in the passing game expanded last week, and he hauled in his first touchdown with the Chiefs in this game. The score was a 12-yard reception late in the second quarter in which Watkins ran through a few tacklers. An emerging part of the best offense in the league, Watkins will be an upside WR3 next week in Denver.
Sep 23 - 5:49 PM

Travis Kelce hauled in 8-of-10 targets for 114 yards in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Patrick Mahomes spread the ball around in this one, but he kept coming back to Kelce, who was seemingly open on every play. The tight end finished the first half with 93 yards including a great one-handed grab in the two-minute drill, and he could have had a bigger day if the Chiefs were forced to throw more in the second half. He will remain a top-two tight end option next week in Denver.
Sep 23 - 5:45 PM

Tyreek Hill hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 51 yards in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

With Patrick Mahomes spreading the ball around, Hill did not have a blow-up game, but he still made his presence known by going up high to reel in a 42-yard catch in the second quarter. He also should have had a 49-yard touchdown, but Mahomes just underthrew him, allowing the defender to catch up. Hill will have some down games, but his upside is as high as any receiver in the league. He will remain a locked-in WR1 next week against the Broncos.
Sep 23 - 5:43 PM

Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Hunt eased the minds of worried fantasy players with two one-yard touchdown runs in the first quarter, and he buoyed his fantasy game with 22 yards on a close-out drive in the fourth. There are still reasons for concern, however. He saw just one target, did not catch that pass, and sat out the two-minute drill at the end of the first half. He now has one catch through three games. Being attached to the best offense in the league should offer plenty of scoring chances, but the lack of receiving usage gives Hunt a concerning floor moving forward.
Sep 23 - 5:40 PM

Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-38 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

The three scores give Mahomes the record for most touchdown passes (13) in the first three games of a season, and he could have had more. He missed a couple throws in the first half including what should have been a touchdown to Tyreek Hill, and the Chiefs attempted just 13 passes in the second half of the easy win. Leading what looks like an unstoppable offense, blowouts might be the only thing which can stop Mahomes from putting up massive fantasy days. A trip to Denver next Monday night might look daunting, but the Broncos' defense has struggled a bit early in the season. Mahomes will be the top overall quarterback next week.

Chiefs declared Eric Berry (heel) inactive for Week 3 against the 49ers.

There was some hope Berry would return to practice this week, but he sat out all three sessions and will miss his third game in a row to open the season. He is at best questionable for Week 4. Kansas City also declared LB Ben Niemann (hamstring), RB Darrel Williams, CB Charvarius Ward, OL Austin Reiter, OL Kahlil McKenzie, and DL Justin Hamilton inactive for Week 3.
Sep 23 - 11:44 AM

Spencer Ware (knee) is active for Week 3 against the 49ers.

Ware picked up a knee injury during the week, but he is healthy enough to back up Kareem Hunt. He is nothing more than a handcuff at this point.
Sep 23 - 11:35 AM

Spencer Ware (knee) is questionable for Week 3 against the 49ers.

Ware is a late addition to the injury report after a limited Friday practice. He hasn't been much of a threat to Kareem Hunt's workload, but his absence would lock Hunt into every-down snaps.
Sep 21 - 5:05 PM

Eric Berry (heel) is doubtful for Week 3 against the 49ers.

Berry is headed for his third straight absence. Tight end George Kittle will get a much easier matchup with Berry sidelined. He's a good bounce-back candidate after disappointing with only two catches against the Lions in Week 2.
Sep 21 - 2:09 PM

Eric Berry (heel) did not practice Thursday.

There was some hope Berry would return this week, but he is going to miss his third game in a row. The Chiefs have given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks so far this season.
Sep 20 - 12:55 PM

Eric Berry (heel) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Berry has yet to practice this season. Jimmy Garoppolo's matchup will be easier at Arrowhead if Berry is unable to return. George Kittle should also see more open space down the seamsif Berry indeed sits this one out.
Sep 19 - 12:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eric Berry (heel) is "improving" and "could practice this week."

The Chiefs are 2-0, but they have given up 860 passing yards and six touchdowns in those wins. Berry would not fix all of their issues, but his return would be a big boost for Kansas City's defense. The Chiefs gets the 49ers at home this week.
Sep 17 - 11:09 AM

Chris Conley caught 2-of-2 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers.

Conley's score was a bullet on a first quarter post route. Conley got the inside track on Artie Burns. It was a nice play, but Conley has just three targets through two games. Patrick Mahomes is working miracles, but he can't make Conley fantasy relevant.
Sep 16 - 6:13 PM

Sammy Watkins caught 6-of-7 targets for 100 yards in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers, adding 31 yards on an end around.

The Chiefs made a point of getting Watkins going after his quiet Week 1, targeting him five times in the first 16 minutes. Despite the obvious intent, Watkins' usage did not feel forced. He was running fluidly in the Chiefs' high-octane attack. Watkins is going to be a feast-or-famine player behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, but today serves as a good reminder of his unusual upside for a WR3/4.
