Chiefs | Spencer Ware scores third preseason TD

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 18:02:28 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware finished with nine carries for 24 yards and a touchdown to go along with four catches for 26 yards in a preseason win over the Chicago Bears on Saturday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Jamaal Charles sitting out yet again, Ware continued to prove he is the handcuff to own in Kansas City despite a less-than-impressive rushing line. The real takeaway is his work in the receiving game, as he has eight catches over the last two preseason contests after posting only six in 11 outings last year. Owners of Charles would be wise to invest a pick in Ware in the early double-digit rounds, while Ware might also provide standalone value as the likely goal-line back to non-Charles owners.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West holds his own

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 15:10:40 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West played behind RB Spencer Ware in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Aug. 13, but flashed on a 25-yard run and finished with 35 yards on four carries.

Fantasy Tip: West doesn't project to have an early-season role with Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware ahead of him on the depth chart, but this performance is just another reminder the Chiefs are as deep at running back as any team in the league. The Abilene Christian product will need some injuries to happen in front of him to be relevant in fantasy, but he has already shown he can produce when given the chance.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware caps first drive with TD

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 14:59:23 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware got the start with RB Jamaal Charles (knee) still on the Physically Unable to Perform list and did not disappoint in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Aug. 13, running for 24 yards on five carries and converting on a 1-yard plunge early in the first quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Ware had the first two drives all to himself before giving way to Charcandrick West, reaffirming the former is in the lead at the moment to be considered Charles' handcuff. The LSU product may also have a bit of standalone value as Kansas City may opt to use him over Charles at the goal line. Ware is one of the better handcuffs available to owners this summer and should be a solid RB4 with significant upside.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware under the weather

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 18:44:31 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (illness) did not practice Saturday, July 30, and head coach Andy Reid said he was sick.

Fantasy Tip: Ware looks like the frontrunner to be Jamaal Charles' primary backup, and if you grab Charles early, you should consider Ware as an insurance policy.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware active in passing game

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:50:32 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware caught lots of passes in OTAs, according to beat writer Terez A. Paylor.

Fantasy Tip: Ware is expected to be the No. 2 back behind Jamaal Charles. Both Ware and Charcandrick West are worth owning given Charles' injury history, but Ware should be higher on your draft board.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware considered the backup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:14:27 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is viewed as the backup running back behind RB Jamaal Charles, according to ESPN.com's Adam Teicher. Teicher did say that Ware and RB Charcandrick West would both play if Charles was injured.

Fantasy Tip: Ware and West proved their worth last season after Charles went down. Their fantasy value is limited as long as Charles is healthy, though. Both Ware and West are low-end RB4 to high-end RB5 considerations in the Chiefs' backfield.

Dolphins | Knile Davis among Dolphins' pursuit

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 11:47:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is a player the Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in. Davis is believed to be on the trade block. The Dolphins also expressed interest in RBs Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, but those talks appeared to go nowhere.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be an RB3 if he landed in a prominent situation like Miami.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware contract details

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:32:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware received a two-year extension worth $3.6 million for 2017 and 2018. The deal can be worth up to $9.6 million based on yards and touchdowns, and he's guaranteed $2.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Ware had 72 attempts for 403 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 with Jamaal Charles (knee) injured for a big chunk of last year. He provides KC with valuable depth in the backfield, but it'll be an uphill battle to come anywhere close to those numbers with Charles expected back healthy in 2016. Ware won't be worth drafting in standard leagues to begin the year.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware extended

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:16:54 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are both signing contract extensions Thursday, March 31, after the two combined for more than 1,000 yards in 2015 after RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was out for the season. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: West and Ware were nice fantasy fill-ins for those that were scrambling to replace Charles early in the year. With Charles expected to return healthy in 2016, though, their roles will be cut back a bit. Perhaps KC will use them both more to preserve Charles, but less frequent touches will knock their fantasy value back down. West could still be an RB4 in deeper leagues, though.

Chiefs | Decision time on Jamaal Charles

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:53:44 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was hurt and then the team went on average 135.9 yards - fifth in the league - in 11 regular season games with RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. He has a $2 million report-to-training camp bonus due in July, and he could be asked to take a pay cut and/or relinquish that bonus to return while earning it back through incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has been a productive back in this league, but he has had multiple injuries to his anterior cruciate ligament and he is getting up there in age. Fantasy owners should be preparing for a steep decline going forward.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware active Saturday

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 12:33:43 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is active against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has been dealing with a high-ankle sprain, so he could be playing in a limited capacity. He's still worth at least a flex start on FantasyScore, though.

Chiefs | Two Chiefs questionable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 08:56:06 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) and WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) are questionable for the divisional game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) should be good to go and will be a flex consideration on FantasyScore. Wilson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could be a low-end flyer with Jeremy Maclin (ankle) maligned with a high ankle sprain.

Chiefs | Limited practice for Spencer Ware

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:26:51 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: He did not practice yesterday, so the limited status is a good sign. Ware's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) status should be tracked heading into the weekend. If he is inactive or limited at all then Charcandrick West ($6,400, 12.8%) would make for a nice RB2 on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware has high ankle sprain

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 10:37:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is dealing with a high ankle sprain and missed practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: High ankle sprains are really tough to get over quickly, so it might be a stretch for Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) to play this weekend against the New England Patriots. That would make Charcandrick West ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) a much more acceptable daily pick, especially if he's used more in the passing game if Jeremy Maclin (ankle) is out.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware sits

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 10:19:36 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) had a decent 16-67-1 line in the wild-card game. He'll be an RB2 consideration against the New England Patriots on FantasyScore if he's able to go.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware absent Tuesday

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 11:15:03 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) missed practice Tuesday, Jan. 12, with a sprained ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is coming off a nice performance in the wild-card game against the Houston Texans in which he ran for 67 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. It was his second consecutive game of 16 carries, at least 67 yards and one touchdown. He has carved out an important role in the Chiefs' offense and he's worth at least a flex start on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware leads KC backfield

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 17:37:49 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried the ball 16 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 30-0 win over the Houston Texans in the wild-card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ware led the team in carries and yards, and he picked up where he left off in the regular season finale. Ware looks like Kansas City's lead back at this point, but the matchups won't be easy going forward in the playoffs.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware listed as probable

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 11:07:08 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a midrange flex option to consider this weekend on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce, Spencer Ware practice

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 14:30:57 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin) and RB Spencer Ware (rib) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is rather expensive on FantasyScore, but with fewer bodies to choose from is worth paying up for. Ware ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a sleeper pick worth investigating in your daily leagues. Charcandrick West is much too expensive against a stout Houston Texans defensive front, but Ware could be used strategically in the passing game.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce, Spencer Ware have full practice

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 15:26:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin) and RB Spencer Ware (ribs) were full participants in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce, Ware and Kansas City's offense as a whole have a tough draw on the road against the Houston Texans this weekend. Houston ranked above averaged defensively against tight ends and running backs this season. Kelce is a better option than Ware, but neither should really spark confidence.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware runs for 76 yards, TD

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 21:20:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 16 times for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Ware stepped up his game with Charcandrick West struggling a little bit. Ware might be a nice RB2 or flex FantasyScore option heading into next Saturday's wild-card game against the Houston Texans.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware should play

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 16:14:05 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) will have a role in the offense this season but it will not be as big as it was earlier in the season. Ware could be a flex option in some leagues, but most owners should be able to find better options.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware practices Thursday

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 17:14:24 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will receive some touches during the game but will not be the team's top running back. Ware could be a flex option for owners, but owners probably will be able to find better options to use.

Chiefs | Three Chiefs have full practice

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 16:22:52 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin), RB Spencer Ware (ribs) and WR Albert Wilson (shin) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is definitely the safest FantasyScore choice of the three, especially facing one of the worst fantasy defenses against tight ends in the Oakland Raiders. Ware ($3,400, 6.8%) isn't nearly as effective with Charcandrick West healthy, and Albert Wilson ($2,000, 4.0%) hasn't done much all year. Both should be avoided in Week 17.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware probable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 15:31:42 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as probable for the Week 16 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will play behind Charcandrick West during the game and see limited playing time this week. Ware could be a flex option in some leagues, but owners should be able to find other options to use.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware fully practices

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 14:45:17 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) did not receive any touches in the last game but should receive some carries against the Cleveland Browns this week. Ware could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore but will not receive a majority of the carries.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware limited Wednesday

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 14:33:22 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: If Ware ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is able to play, which it looks like that may be the case, he will cut into Charcandrick West's touches, which would obviously decrease West's value some. They both have a good matchup against the Cleveland Browns, but they would be harming each other's fantasy value. West ($5,900, 11.8%) still has more upside and should still be regarded as a high-end RB2 this week.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware active Sunday

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 09:42:35 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is active for Week 15's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is unlikely to see a great deal of action this afternoon, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore. Charcandrick West ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is expected to receive the bulk of the carries and he has a favorable matchup against a poor Baltimore defense.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware could play Sunday

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 07:16:04 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) could play in Week 15's game against the Baltimore Ravens, despite dealing with separated cartilage in his ribs, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore this week because he is likely to share the carries with Charcandrick West ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) if he is active. Ware practiced on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 18, and is officially designated as questionable on the injury report.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware's status in question

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 13:33:54 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) may be a game-time decision, so owners should check the inactive list leading up to the game. Ware would share work with Charcandrick West if he is active and may not be the best option for owners.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware not present

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 16:10:08 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: A second straight day of missed practice can't be good for Ware's ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) chances of facing the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore is a tough team to run on, but if Ware sits out, Charcandrick West ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) becomes at least a little more attractive as a contrarian pick.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware sits out

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 17:26:29 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) suffered the injury during the team's Week 14 game and his status for this week is still uncertain. Owners probably should look for other options to use since Ware likely will be sharing touches if he plays.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware undergoes X-rays

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 16:12:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) underwent X-rays on the injured ribs he suffered during the team's Week 14 game, but they came back negative. He is dealing with bruised and swollen ribs and is dealing with pain.

Fantasy Tip: Ware's status for Week 15 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor his practice participation. He would continue to share time with Charcandrick West if he plays and could be a solid option against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15.

Chiefs | Spence Ware questionable to return

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 11:21:54 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is questionable to return in Week 14 with a rib injury.

Fantasy Tip: Charcandrick West should now be the featured running back for as long as Ware is out. As with any injury, Ware will need to be monitored. He ran for 45 yards on seven carries before he left.

Chiefs | RBs to rotate in KC

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 09:59:13 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West and RB Spencer Ware will likely continue to rotate, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Both could still have value, but obviously it's not ideal for either back. West ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) will probably be the multiple-down guy with Ware ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) coming in for red zone situations. West is a risk against the San Diego Chargers at his price, while Ware makes a decent midrange grab on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware probable

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 15:16:04 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) and RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 4, and are listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: West ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should regain his starting role, but Ware likely will have solid role in the offense after his play the last few weeks. West probably has more fantasy value at this point, but both players could be starting options for owners.

Chiefs | KC running backs have full practice

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 17:10:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West (hamstring) and Spencer Ware (hamstring) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: West ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) appears ready to return to duty against the Oakland Raiders, but we expect Ware ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) will continue to remain involved in some capacity. Even while sharing touches, West, as the go-to running back, has appeal on FantasyScore against a top-10 matchup against the run.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware takes part in practice

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 17:22:07 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) played well over the last few games but likely will see a drop in his work if Charcandrick West is able to return. Ware should still have a solid role in the offense if he does not start and could be a flex option in some leagues.

Chiefs | KC ground game excelling

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 11:16:20 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are averaging 152.6 yards per game during the team's five-game winning streak. With RB Jamaal Charles earlier in the year, the Chiefs were averaging 109.8 rushing yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: With West injured and sitting out in Week 12, Ware filled in admirably for fantasy owners who took a chance on him. It's unclear if West is in line to return this weekend, but whoever faces the Oakland Raiders as the starting running back is certainly worth a look on FantasyScore at a cheaper salary. The Raiders are a top-10 PPR fantasy matchup for running backs.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware plays well in Week 12

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 14:59:56 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed for 114 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries in the team's Week 12 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Ware received the start since Charcandrick West is dealing with an injury and performed well against the Bills. Owners will need to monitor the situation during practice next week to see what his role will be in Week 13. West could be a decent fantasy option even if he is not starting against the Oakland Raiders.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware to start against BUF

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 07:05:31 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware will be the starting running back for Week 12's game against the Buffalo Bills. RB Knile Davis will also be active for the game. RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) is considered a long-shot to play, although the condition of his hamstring has improved.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) had 96 yards on 11 carries with two touchdowns in Week 11's game against the San Diego Chargers and should be a solid option in all fantasy formats this week. Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and West ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware will have a role

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 07:51:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware will have a role on offense against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 even if RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) is able to play.

Fantasy Tip: There is a good chance that Ware ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will receive the start since West did not practice this week. He is coming off a game where he rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Ware could be a solid fantasy option for owners if he receivers the start.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware shines as replacement

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 16:38:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 11 times for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also had a five-yard reception on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Ware came on for the injured Charcandrick West and was tremendous, although it is unlikely anyone was able to benefit from his big day. If West cannot go in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills, Ware might be worth a look as a flex option in deeper fantasy formats.

Chiefs | Knile Davis inactive for Week 10

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 12:13:36 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is inactive against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Nov. 15. RB Spencer Ware should back up RB Charcandrick West.

Fantasy Tip: Ware will play sparingly as long as West is healthy. Davis' fantasy value appears to be nearly non-existent at this point.

Chiefs | Knile Davis unlikely to play

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 08:30:14 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is expected to be deactivated for Week 10's game against the Denver Broncos. RB Spencer Ware is expected to serve as the backup to RB Charcandrick West.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has averaged just 2.4 yards per carry on 21 rushing attempts this season and hasn't seen an increase in playing time despite Jamaal Charles going down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 5. Ware ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has four carries for 20 yards over the past two weeks. Neither player is a great fantasy option at this point.
