Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney injured a hamstring in the 1st half of Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers and is officially questionable to return. He failed to catch his lone target before exiting. Stay tuned for an update.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire left in the 1st quarter of Sunday night's game against the Chargers with a right-ankle injury. He's officially questionable to return.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco handled 16 of 17 team RB carries in Sunday’s win over Jacksonville. He looked spry with 3.69 YAC per attempt, per Pro Football Focus. Shockingly, backfield mate Clyde Edwards-Helaire mixed in for only 4 snaps. Jerick McKinnon handled 23 snaps and out-targeted Pacheco 8-0. The rookie is still inching closer to RB2 range given the strength of Kansas City’s offense. Week 11 turns up a matchup with a Chargers D-line that’s been destroyed by injuries.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney emerged from Week 10 with 4 catches, 90 total yards and 1 score. Toney was left wide open on his TD. But it’s the stuff beyond the box score that should have fantasy owners excited. He showed off his wild athleticism with a catch-and-run opportunity and even went up high for a contested catch. Toney’s role got a boost following JuJu Smith-Schuster’s 1st half concussion. Mecole Hardman sat out Sunday’s game, too. We'll see on their status going forward, but at a minimum, Toney should be owned in just about all formats.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder, knee, hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. The hamstring was added to the injury report on Friday, when McKinnon was limited in practice, so he carries elevated risk in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder, knee, hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jaguars. The hamstring was added to the injury report on Friday, when McKinnon was limited in practice. His absence on Sunday would be a particular boost to RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s target projection. We’ll get Kansas City’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney is officially active for tonight’s game vs. the Titans. We’ll see exactly how big a role he plays after joining Kansas City 10 days ago. Toney is a fun play in 1-game DFS contests but would be a flier in season-long fantasy lineups.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney is not listed on this week’s injury report and is expected to play vs. the Titans on Sunday night. We’ll see how big a role he assumes after joining the team a little over a week ago. Toney would be a flier in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Wednesday that WR Kadarius Toney is "healthy now." He's been sidelined since Week 2 with alleged hamstring injuries that are evidently better now that he's been traded to Kansas City. It sounds like Toney will be available for Sunday night's game against the Titans. It's entirely unclear how big of a role he'll play, so we'd keep him on fantasy benches for Week 9. But Toney remains a high-upside stash.

The Chiefs acquired WR Kadarius Toney from the Giants in exchange for a 2023 3rd-round compensatory pick and a 2023 6th-round pick. Injuries have limited Toney to just 12 games over his first 1-and-a-half NFL seasons, including only 2 this year. But he's flashed exciting route-running and after-the-catch ability when on the field. This is about the best-case scenario for his fantasy value, which seemed almost non-existent in New York. We'll see when Toney is able to get on the field after missing the past 5 weeks with hamstring trouble -- and then how he fits in alongside WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman. But if he can find playing time with QB Patrick Mahomes, Toney could quickly emerge as a fantasy factor. He's worth grabbing now in leagues where he was dropped.

Giants HC Brian Daboll told reporters Wednesday that WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Kenny Golladay (knee) still aren't ready to practice, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. We'll see when/if their statuses change. EDGE Oshane Ximines (quad) also will miss Wednesday's practice.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 423 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT in Sunday's win at San Francisco. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and TE Travis Kelce tied for the target lead with 8. Smith-Schuster racked up a 7-124-1 receiving line, his 2nd straight game with more than 100 yards and a TD. Kelce supplied 98 yards on 6 catches. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 3 of 4 targets for 111 yards. Mahomes' other 2 scores went to WR Mecole Hardman (on a shovel pass) and WR Justin Watson. K.C. gets a Week 8 bye and then home dates with the Titans and Jaguars.

Chiefs rookie RB Isiah Pacheco led the team with 8 carries in Sunday's win over the 49ers, gaining 43 yards on his 8 rushes. He didn't get the call on any of K.C.'s 3 rushing scores for the game, however. Clyde Edwards-Helaire scored from 16 yards out. Mecole Hardman logged rushing scores from 25 and 3 yards away, plus an 8-yard score on a shovel pass. Pacheco played 2 more snaps than CEH for the game but 9 fewer than Jerick McKinnon. His 9-snap edge came entirely in receiving situations. McKinnon caught 2 of 3 targets for 36 yards and carried twice for 12 yards. Edwards-Helaire combined a 6-32-1 rushing line with 0 catches on 1 target. The Chiefs get a Week 8 bye and then home dates with the Titans and Jaguars.

The Chiefs gave 1st-team reps to RB Isiah Pacheco in practice this week and plan to start him over Clyde Edwards-Helaire against the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. CEH "will still have a key role on offense," and we assume Jerick McKinnon will continue to be heavily involved. But this is the latest signal of dissatisfaction with Edwards-Helaire, who played fewer snaps than McKinnon in 3 of the past 4 games. Pick up Pacheco where available ahead of today's game.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Kenny Golladay (knee) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. What else is new? Darius Slayton (26 routes), Marcus Johnson (26), Richie James (13) and Wan'Dale Robinson (12) operated as New York's top 4 WRs last week. Robinson is the only potential fantasy option -- and he's a risky play until we see his route rate climb.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Kenny Golladay (knee) sat out practice Wednesday. Golladay has missed the past 2 games with his knee sprain, while Toney has lost 4 straight to hamstring issues. We'll see when -- or whether -- either guy factors back into this offense.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 338 yards and 2 TDs but also got picked twice in Sunday's loss to the Bills. It was his 1st 300-yard game since Week 1 but the 2nd straight week in which Mahomes reached 40 pass attempts. He gets a trip to San Francisco in Week 7 ahead of the Week 8 bye.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire led the Chiefs with 9 carries and 33 rushing yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. He watched RB Jerick McKinnon run 5 more pass routes, however, and drew no targets. McKinnon led the backfield with 3 looks -- catching all 3 for 29 yards. RB Isiah Pacheco caught both of his targets for 9 yards. CEH was not among the 10 Chiefs to draw a target. This contest continued a RB3 work level for Edwards-Helaire. McKinnon and Pacheco drew 2 carries apiece for minimal yardage.

Chiefs K Harrison Butker (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He practiced all week, including full practices on Thursday and Friday. Butker looks safe to get back into fantasy lineups for Sunday’s likely shootout vs. the Bills.

Giants WRs WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Kenny Golladay (knee) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. Both guys missed practice all week and don't look particularly close to returning.
