The forecast for today's Chiefs-Giants game calls for 16-20 mph winds with possible gusts over 40 mph. That's more than enough to make an impact, particularly on the deep-passing and kicking games. We just moved Alex Smith, Eli Manning, Tyreek Hill, Harrison Butker and Aldrick Rosas down the Week 11 Rankings. This could be a run-heavy game on both sides.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has been cleared of a concussion, according to Pro Football Talk. So he'll be available for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. Hill will remain a WR2 with upside for that one.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said after Sunday's loss to the Steelers that WR Tyreek Hill is being evaluated for a concussion. The potential head injury presumably occurred at the end of a punt return late in the 4th quarter. Hill wasn't on the field for Kansas City's final drive. We should get an update on his status tomorrow.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has been a standout early in training camp. He's "taking his game to another level," B.J. Kissel of the team's official website wrote after Sunday's practice. "Hill made contested catches in tight space, fought off defenders for leverage, and obviously showed the world-class speed ... all indications through offseason workouts and the first part of camp is that he’s prepared to handle an increased workload in 2017." Kansas City showed big faith in Hill when they released WR Jeremy Maclin in June. He should see a nice bump from last year's 83 targets -- and continue to contribute on the ground after a 24-267-3 rushing line as a rookie. Hill is pricey, though, with an MFL10 ADP sitting in the 4th round.

The Chiefs have released WR Jeremy Maclin. This one comes out of nowhere. Maclin missed 4 games last year and finished with a disappointing 44-546-2 line. But he's just 29 and went for 1,088 yards and 8 scores back in 2015. It sounds like this was a salary cap move, with Maclin's release saving the Chiefs $10 million. It shouldn't take him long to find a new employer. The Ravens would be a nice landing spot. In Kansas City, meanwhile, WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce are left as the clear top 2 options in the passing game. WR Chris Conley figures to join those guys in the starting lineup and could be an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid is looking to expand WR Tyreek Hill's role in 2017, he said from the owners' meetings. “He’ll do nothing but get better as long as he keeps the right attitude and the same work ethic he had this past year," Reid said. "I’m expecting good things from him." Hill played in less than 40% of Kansas City's offensive snaps last year but still finished 23rd among WRs in PPR points. Of course, he also racked up 85 offensive touches -- a number the 5'10, 185-pounder is unlikely to top going forward. Still, more playing time could at least make Hill a more reliable weekly fantasy option.

The NFL has moved kickoff of the Steelers-Chiefs game to 8:20 pm ET on Sunday. The game was originally scheduled to start at 1:05 ET, but Kansas City is expected to get slammed by an ice storm this weekend. The current forecast calls for a 100% chance of rain and 32-degree temperatures for Sunday night, so we're not sure what the new kickoff time is accomplishing. Wind isn't expected to be an issue, but the conditions will obviously be less than ideal for the passing games.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was the most electric player on the field in Thursday night's game against the Raiders. He got the Chiefs on the board in the 2nd quarter with a 36-yard TD grab, running right by CB David Amerson on a post route. Later in that quarter, Hill took a punt return right through the teeth of Oakland's coverage for a 78-yard score. Kansas City got Hill the ball on a few quick-hitting passes, but he wasn't able to break any of those for big gains. He finished with 6 catches on 6 targets for 66 yards. It's worth noting that he played just 45.5% of the offensive snaps, his lowest share since Week 8. But Hill is getting the ball when he's on the field and will remain a key piece of this Chiefs offense the rest of the way. He gets a plus Week 15 matchup against the Titans' 29th-ranked WR defense.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He'll return for Thursday night's game against the Raiders after missing the previous 4 weeks. Maclin has averaged 8 targets in his 7 full games this season and has a shot to see somewhere in that vicinity vs. Oakland. He's a risky WR3 in his 1st game back, but he puts a dent in WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce's projections.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He put in 3 limited practices this week and seemingly has a chance to return for Week 14. His absence again leaves WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce as the top 2 targets in Kansas City's passing game.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) put in a limited week of practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. It’s unclear if he’s ready to return after missing the past 3 weeks. We’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Maclin would be a risk/reward WR3 if active — and put a dent in WR Tyreek Hill’s target projection.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos. He didn’t practice all week and still has no timetable for return. Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson and Chris Conley will again serve as Kansas City’s top 3 WRs. But none is a good fantasy play vs. Denver’s elite secondary.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. There’s no timetable for his return. Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson and Chris Conley will again serve as Kansas City’s top 3 WRs. Hill, despite playing the fewest snaps of the 3, racked up 13 targets last week and is the best fantasy bet.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's an extreme long shot to be ready for this weekend's game against the Bucs. That'll again leave Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson and Chris Conley as Kansas City's top 3 WRs.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Fantasy owners can't be counting on him for Week 11 at this point. With Maclin out last Sunday, WR Tyreek Hill racked up 10 catches on 13 targets.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. He didn’t practice all week and can’t be considered a lock to return for Week 11. Chris Conley, Albert Wilson and Tyreek Hill will serve as Kansas City’s top 3 WRs vs. Carolina’s 29th-ranked WR defense.

Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Panthers this weekend. With Maclin out for most of last Sunday's game, Chris Conley played 88% of the snaps, Albert Wilson 71% and Tyreek Hill 59%.
