Chiefs HC Andy Reid said from the Combine that he was encouraged by WR Mecole Hardman's growth last season. "Mecole did a good job, continually got better throughout the year and worked hard and it paid off for him," Reid said. "We found that groove as coaches of things that he did best and tried to utilize him in those positions." Hardman set career highs in 2021 with 59 catches and 693 receiving yards. But he still finished just 47th among WRs in PPR points -- and his best fantasy outing came in Week 18. In 3 playoff games, Hardman never topped a 57% snap rate and totaled just 9 targets. Reid's comments make it sound like the Chiefs like him in that limited role. We'll see if we hear anything to the contrary.

Matt Schneidman of The Athletic believes free agent WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling will “probably” be “too expensive” for Green Bay to re-sign. Schneidman calls MVS’s production “too sporadic” for the anticipated cost. In 2021, the 27-year-old popped for games with 22 and 21 PPR points. But he remained unreliable on a weekly basis and missed time with back and hamstring injuries. Spotrac expects Valdes-Scantling’s free agent deal to be roughly $24 million over 3 years.

The Chiefs waived WR Josh Gordon. The team is hoping to re-sign him to the practice squad if he clears waivers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Gordon caught just 5 balls in 12 regular-season appearances and was a healthy scratch for Kansas City's first 2 playoff games. The 30-year-old's dynasty value has just about vanished.

NFL Network's James Palmer hears that Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is "good to go" for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. "They're not really looking at a snap count ... it's gonna be play it by ear," Palmer adds. It doesn't sound like Edwards-Helaire's shoulder will be a factor, but he might still lose snaps to RB Jerick McKinnon after McKinnon's strong showing in the Wild Card win.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. Meanwhile, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) was a full participant all week and will play against Buffalo. It's unclear exactly what this backfield split will look like after RB Jerick McKinnon's impressive showing in the Wild Card win over the Steelers.

The Buccaneers have ruled out RB Ronald Jones (ankle) and WR Breshad Perriman (hip, abdomen) for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Perriman’s absence will leave opportunity for WR Cyril Grayson, if he’s able to play. Grayson is questionable with a hamstring injury that allowed him just 1 limited practice this week. Tampa also has WR Scotty Miller behind Mike Evans and Tyler Johnson.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire has put in a pair of full practices to open the week leading up to Sunday night's clash with the Bills. That comes after CEH was inactive for the Wild Card round win over the Steelers with his shoulder injury. Darrel Williams, meanwhile, sat out practice both Wednesday and Thursday with the toe injury that limited him to just 8 snaps against Pittsburgh. Jerick McKinnon, of course, emerged as the workhorse for that game. We'll see, though, how touches get distributed now that Edwards-Helaire appears on track for full availability.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) is doubtful for this weekend’s game against San Francisco. MVS was a limited participant in Tuesday’s practice but missed the next 2 sessions. Current projections have Davante Adams for nearly 11 targets; Allen Lazard #2 on the team with nearly 6.

1:55pm EST 1/20/22

Chiefs LB Willie Gay Jr. has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor property damage after an alleged domestic dispute with the mother of his son. We wouldn't bet on the situation affecting Gay's availability for Sunday's game against the Bills, but it'll be something to watch for potential league discipline.

Bucs RB Ronald Jones (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for this weekend's Divisional Round game vs. the Rams. We'll see if Tampa gets RB Leonard Fournette back from his hamstring injury.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly puts him on track to return for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bills. It's unclear, though, how touches will be divvied after RB Jerick McKinnon's impressive performance in the Wild Card Round. RB Darrel Williams (toe) did not practice on Wednesday.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) did not practice on Wednesday. That follows a limited practice on Tuesday and puts MVS' status for Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the 49ers in question. We'll get another update on Thursday.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. That seemingly puts him on track to play vs. the 49ers on Saturday after he exited Week 18 with the back injury. We'll get another update on MVS on Wednesday.

Chiefs WR Josh Gordon is a healthy scratch for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. Tyreek Hill, Byron Pringle, Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman will operate as Kansas City's top 4 WRs.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) is active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs. We'd be surprised if he played anything close to a full slate of snaps in his first action since early October.

The Steelers have activated WR JuJu Smith-Schuster from IR, making him eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He had previously said he'd take part. It's tough to know just how much we can expect, though, from a guy who is coming off October shoulder surgery. Smith-Schuster is no more than a fringe fantasy football consideration for what will likely be Pittsburgh's lone playoff game.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is out for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. It looks like he suffered a setback after putting in a limited practice on Wednesday. CEH's absence again leaves Darrel Williams as Kansas City's lead back. Williams will be playing through a toe injury, so it's possible that we see more of RBs Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon.

After being limited on Wednesday, Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) did not practice on Thursday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback with that shoulder or just got the day off. RB Darrel Williams (toe) remained limited on Thursday. We'll get another update on the Chiefs backfield on Friday afternoon.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday. He's been out since suffering a shoulder injury in Week 5 that required surgery. He was supposed to miss the rest of the season and still seems like a big long shot to play vs. the Chiefs this weekend. But we'll keep an eye on him.

Chiefs RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) and Darrel Williams (toe) were limited in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly puts them on track to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, but we'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.
