Chiefs | Spencer Ware held to 35 yards

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 22:01:26 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware ran eight times for 35 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Ware's low output was the result of Pittsburgh's stifling run defense, which forced Alex Smith to have to throw more. There was some success on both the running and passing game, but Ware will likely go back into a reduced role next year with Jamaal Charles likely returning. He might make a good handcuff pick, however.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware ready to play

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 15:16:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Ware received two weeks to rest his injured rib and should receive his normal workload against the Steelers. He will be facing an improved Steelers defense but can be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Another full practice for Spencer Ware

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 14:56:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ware should be at or very close to 100 percent health for the Divisional Round, especially when considering he sat out the team's regular season finale in San Diego a couple of weeks ago as a precautionary measure. He was a little less effective as the season wore on, having scored only one rushing touchdown since Week 6, but he's expected to retain his role as the club's feature back and will be looking at a sizable workload.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware practices in full

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 14:45:11 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ware appears to be on track to return to the lineup after missing Week 17 because of the injury. He likely will receive most of the work in the running game if he does not suffer a setback during the week. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider Ware a No. 1 or No. 2 running back.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware expected to be full-speed

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 10:33:57 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) should be "good to go" for the team's Divisional Round matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Ware set out Week 17 as the Chiefs chose to play it safe with his injury and give him some rest after his effectiveness dropped off in a big way over the second half of the season. He is unlikely to find much success running against the Steelers' improved defense this weekend, so he is more of a low-end option at best in all playoff fantasy formats.

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 12:28:26 -0800

Chiefs | Spencer Ware could play Sunday

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 06:30:40 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) is hopeful that he will be able to play in Week 17's game against the San Diego Chargers. He was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Kansas City has already clinched a playoff berth, they still have an opportunity to win the division, so the possibility looms that Ware could see a decent number of carries in Week 17. As extra incentive, he will also receive a $600,000 bonus next season if he gains at least 79 yards today. If Ware is active, he should be viewed as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.

Chiefs | Another limited practice for Spencer Ware

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 13:27:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) was a limited participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Dec. 30. He is considered questionable to play in the team's Week 17 game Sunday, Jan. 1, versus the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs still have the opportunity to win the AFC West division and secure a first-round bye, meaning Ware could tough it out with so much still at stake. He may be hard to lean on regardless, as Kansas City also may elect to limit his snaps if he indeed suits up. If Ware ends up sitting out, Charcandrick West would take over and be worth a look in all formats.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware to be game-time decision

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 11:27:00 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) will be a game-time decision in Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Ware has been "limited" in practice all week. While he is expected to play, he's not a lock to do so. If Ware is unable to play, Charcandrick West should be in line for a full workload in a solid matchup. In such a case, West would be worth a DFS play based on volume alone in a week where finding running backs with heavy workloads figures to be a huge challenge.
