Fantasy Tip: Maclin is averaging five receptions per game this season, which is decent in PPR leagues. However, his yardage total was a season low, and he hasn't found the end zone since the opener. He should be treated as a WR3 in most standard leagues until he gets untracked.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce has rolled up five or more receptions in each of his three games, and Sunday's game marked his first foray into the end zone. He is a tremendous TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 at Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a great day for Ware, but he was a serviceable RB2 in most fantasy formats. He faces a decent fantasy outlook in Week 4 in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a precautionary measure for Charles, who has yet to suit up for a regular-season game this year but is likely to see action versus the Pittsburgh Steelers next week. RB Spencer Ware will once again serve as the team's lead back and should be viewed as an RB2 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Sam Barrington (hamstring), OG Parker Ehinger (concussion, foot) and OT Jah Reid (ankle, knee) have been ruled out for Week 3. OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle) and CB Phillip Gaines (knee) are listed as questionable. Ehinger and Reid did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, while Barrington, Duvernay-Tardif and Gaines were limited during practice. LB Tamba Hali (knee) did not practice but is not on the injury report. SS Eric Berry (knee) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the New York Jets. While most of his work in practice this week was on the scout team, head coach Andy Reid said Charles saw a bit of first-team work as well.
Fantasy Tip: Charles appears primed for a Week 4 debut versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, although it should be noted the Chiefs have a Week 5 bye. Either way, he's almost certain to share backfield duties with Spencer Ware for at least a few weeks and possibly the remainder of the season when he returns. Kansas City's offense can support two backs in fantasy, although both will likely be relegated to RB2 status if they split work.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Andy Reid has already indicated that it's more likely than not that Charles will sit out another week. Even if he does manage to suit up, he would be shaping up as a risky play at best. As a result, look for Spencer Ware to continue to settle in as a fine RB2 in Kansas City's upcoming tilt with the Jets.

Kansas City Chiefs OLs Jah Reid (knee, ankle) and Parker Ehinger (concussion, foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, September 22. OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle) and LB Sam Barrington (hamstring) were limited participants, while S Eric Berry (knee) and LB Tamba Hali (knee) practiced in full.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is likely to sit again in Week 3. Head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that "another week is going to help him. We'll just see."
Fantasy Tip: Charles has been inactive for the first two games, as Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. Fantasy owners should be patient, as it could be another week or two before Charles returns to game action, and a handful of games before he regains fantasy relevance.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Sam Barrington (hamstring), SS Eric Berry (knee), OG Parker Ehinger (concussion, foot), LB Tamba Hali (knee) and OT Jah Reid (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21. OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle) was limited during practice.
Wed, 21 Sep 2016 16:53:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Charles' practice participation during the week to see if he has any chance to play in Week 3. He likely would be limited if he is active for the game and probably should be avoided.

Fantasy Tip: The nightmare continues for owners who drafted Charles in the second or third round of drafts this summer hoping they were getting a discounted rate on a potential RB1 who could take over the backfield sometime before the end of September. The good news is that a return seems imminent. When he does make it back, he'll likely split backfield work with Spencer Ware.
Sun, 18 Sep 2016 09:02:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Spencer Ware should receive a majority of the playing time at running back with Charcandrick West also seeing snaps. Ware should be a solid No. 2 running back in most leagues despite his toe injury, while West could be an attractive flex option.
