Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has a year left on his contract, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to stay in K.C. this season. The Chiefs have decisions to make on extensions with other players, including DT Chris Jones and CB L'Jarius Sneed. If they need more cap space, MVS looks like a prime candidate to help. He's set to count nearly $14 million against the 2024 cap, whereas cutting the vet would leave just a $2 million dead-cap hit. Valdes-Scantling averaged a career-low 1.3 receptions per game in 2023, his second with the Chiefs. He also set a career low with 15.0 yards per catch and has scored just three TDs across two seasons. Frankly, we'll be a little surprised if Kansas City doesn't at least look to restructure MVS this offseason. You shouldn't be looking his way in best ball drafts right now anyway, so there's low potential fantasy impact to this situation.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce said after Sunday's Super Bowl win that he'll be back for the 2024 season. There had been some whispers that he'd retire, especially if the Chiefs won another title. But Kelce will help Kansas City gun for a three-peat. The 34-year-old averaged 14.8 PPR points per game this past year -- his fewest since 2016 but still enough to lead all TEs. Kelce then racked up 32 catches, 355 yards, and three TDs across four playoff games. He sits atop our 2024 fantasy football TE rankings.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the 49ers. He's signed with Kansas City for the 2024 season, but it's tough to be optimistic about his fantasy value considering how this season went. WR Skyy Moore is active for the Chiefs tonight.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) is active for tonight's game vs. the 49ers. It's a surprise after HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that McKinnon had a "slim" chance to play. He evidently made more progress than expected throughout the week. We're still not expecting McKinnon to play a major role in his first action since mid-December, although he could siphon some passing-down snaps from RB Isiah Pacheco.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He was limited in practice all week. HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that McKinnon had a "slim" chance to play, so we're currently projecting him to miss this one. We'll get Kansas City's inactives around 5 pm ET on Sunday.

Chiefs WR Skyy Moore (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. WR Kadarius Toney was not listed on the injury report. So it looks like both guys will be available for Sunday's Super Bowl, although it remains unclear if either or both will be active. Neither guy has played since mid-December. Rashee Rice, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Justin Watson will likely to continue operating as Kansas City's top three WRs regardless.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Tuesday that chances are "slim" RB Jerick McKinnon plays in the Super Bowl. He was designated to return this past weekend but evidently isn't ready for game action after early-January surgery to repair a core muscle injury and fractured pelvis. RB Isiah Pacheco should continue to dominate Chiefs backfield work vs. the 49ers on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) has been designated to return from IR. That makes him eligible to play in next Sunday's Super Bowl, although it's still unclear if he will. McKinnon has been out since mid-December and had surgery to repair a core muscle injury and fractured pelvis on January 2. He averaged 1.8 carries and 2.7 targets across 12 games this season.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (ankle, toe) is active for today's game against the Ravens. He missed the week's first two practices before a limited Friday and "questionable" listing on the final injury report. Pacheco's gotta be somewhere south of full strength. But we're also seen no indication his role will be limited today. It's tough to downgrade him as a fantasy option on a two-game slate. Perhaps the combo of toe and ankle issues at least gives Clyde Edwards-Helaire some upside, especially if Pacheco gets knocked out of the game at any point.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hip, personal) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Ravens. It'll be his sixth straight missed game. Rashee Rice, Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Mecole Hardman figure to serve as Kansas City's top four WRs in Baltimore.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (ankle, toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Ravens. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. While Pacheco clearly isn't at 100%, we haven't heard anything to suggest that he's in danger of missing this one. We'll keep you updated on his status and get Kansas City's inactives around 1:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Ravens. He went from a full practice on Wednesday to limited practices on Thursday and Friday. WR Skyy Moore (knee) has been ruled out. Rashee Rice, Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Mecole Hardman have been Kansas City's top four WRs in terms of pass routes in each of the Chiefs' two playoff games so far.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco has missed the first two practices of the week with ankle and toe injuries. He told the media earlier this week that he'd be ready for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Ravens, but Pacheco's status will be worth checking back in on when we get Kansas City's final injury report on Friday afternoon.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hip, ankle) is inactive for tonight's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. WR Justyn Ross (hamstring) is active but unlikely to play a big role. Rashee Rice, Justin Watson, Mecole Hardman, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling operated as Kansas City's top four WRs in last week's win over the Dolphins.

Chiefs WR Skyy Moore (knee) is out for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. He was designated to return from IR at the start of the week, got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday, but then did not practice on Friday. It's unclear if Moore would be ready to go if Kansas City advances to the AFC Championship. WRs Kadarius Toney (hip, ankle) and Justyn Ross (hamstring) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable for the Buffalo game.

Chiefs WR Skyy Moore (knee) was designated to return from IR and limited in Wednesday's practice. He's been out since Week 15. We'll see if Moore makes it back for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills, but he's unlikely to be a major factor. He hasn't topped 42 yards or scored since Week 2.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hip, ankle) is inactive for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. Hopefully he wasn't part of your playoff plans. WR Justyn Ross (hamstring) is also inactive.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (hip, ankle) is questionable for Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. HC Andy Reid said Thursday that Toney will be limited if he plays. He shouldn't be in your fantasy plans.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon is unlikely to play this postseason, according to Chiefs Digest's Matt Derrick. McKinnon had surgery on January 2 for a core muscle injury and a fractured pelvis, per Derrick, which is expected to sideline him at least 6-8 weeks. McKinnon's absence leaves Clyde Edwards-Helaire as Kansas City's No. 2 RB -- and Isiah Pacheco in a workhorse role.

Chiefs WR Rashee Rice (hamstring) was a full-go in Tuesday's practice. He didn't play in last week's meaningless regular-season finale but will be ready to rock for Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins.
