Kansas City Chiefs Fantasy Football News 2019

Chiefs S Eric Berry is "unlikely" to play against the Colts today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Berry is officially questionable with the heel injury that has dogged him since his late-season return.

Chiefs CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) is inactive for tonight's game against the Seahawks. That helps the outlook for Seattle slot WR Doug Baldwin.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs believe CB Kendall Fuller suffered a wrist fracture in Thursday night's loss to the Chargers that will require surgery. That likely means Fuller is done for the season, which would leave the K.C. defense without its slot corner. That'd be good news for Seahawks slot WR Doug Baldwin in Week 16 if he's ready for the teams' showdown.

Chiefs S Eric Berry is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He put in limited practices all week in his 1st action of the season. Berry's certainly not in lineup consideration for his 1st game since last year's opener. We'll see how things go.

Despite being active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Chiefs ILB Anthony Hitchens didn't play a snap. There didn't appear to be any report from the team beforehand that this would be the case. Hitchens has been dealing with a rib injury, but he played through a "questionable" tag in Week 9 and re-entered that game after appearing to aggravate it. He then put in limited practices this week. We'll see if better info precedes next Monday's clash with the Rams.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens (rib), OLB Justin Houston and S Daniel Sorensen (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Hitchens entered last week's game with the rib issue and left early but returned. He should be ready for the game. Houston and Sorensen are expected to return for limited playing time, according to The Kansas City Star. Houston missed the past 4 games but returned to practice last week. Sorensen recently came off IR after suffering a fracture in his left leg in August. Neither Houston nor Sorensen looks like a viable IDP option this week, but each has a chance to become 1 soon. Hitchens looks fine for IDP usage.

Chiefs ILB Anthony Hitchens (ribs) is active for today's game against the Browns. That makes him available for IDP usage, but he carries risk. Along with the durability question attached to his rib injury, Hitchens played just 65% and 75% of the defensive snaps the past 2 weeks (though the 2nd game found him leaving early with the injury).

As expected, Chiefs OLB Justin Houston (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. It'll be his 4th straight missed contest. Breeland Speaks will get another start in his place and carries nice upside in the matchup.

Chiefs OLB Justin Houston is "considered very unlikely to play" against the Browns today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Houston returned to practice this week after missing the past 3 games but doesn't sound ready for IDP lineups. If he's inactive, Breeland Speaks becomes an upside option for IDP owners.

Chiefs ILB Anthony Hitchens (ribs) and OLB Justin Houston (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Both guys missed Wednesday's practice but then put in limited workouts the next 2 days. We'll see about their status Sunday morning. Each guy will be in play for IDP lineups if he's active.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters early Wednesday that he expected OLB Justin Houston to return to practice after missing 3 games with a hamstring injury. "He's going to do a little bit today but just very, very limited," Reid said. "But he is making progress." The team then listed Houston as a non-participant in the official practice report. So if Houston did anything, it couldn't have been much. It's nice that the veteran pass-rusher is making some progress, but he doesn't look like a good bet for this week's upside matchup with the Browns. If Houston remains out, OLB Breeland Speaks would be an option in deeper IDP leagues. Speaks has delivered 17 total pressures over K.C.'s past 4 games, starting with the contest Houston left early.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chiefs ILB Anthony Hitchens came away from Sunday's win over the Broncos with "severely bruised ribs" that have rendered him week-to-week. "Too early to tell how much time he'll miss," Rapoport added. That makes it sound like Hitchens has a pretty good chance to miss at least 1 game. Add that he had just played a season-low 65% of the snaps the week before (coaches' choice), and IDP owners should just keep Hitchens out of the Week 9 plans. Reggie Ragland played a season-high 74% of the snaps Sunday and looks like the best bet for tackle production inside the K.C. defense. The Cleveland matchup carries plenty of fantasy upside for LBs.

The Chiefs have designated S Daniel Sorensen to return from IR and expect him to practice Wednesday. Sorensen has been out since August knee surgery after he suffered a lateral meniscus tear, an MCL injury and a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg. Sorensen could quickly work his way back into a defense that has largely struggled this season and continues to miss S Eric Berry. We'll keep an eye on Sorensen's progress for IDP purposes.

Chiefs OLB Justin Houston (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Bengals. It'll be his 2nd straight missed game after Houston left Week 5 early with the injury. Kansas City also expects to remain without S Eric Berry (heel), who is also listed as "doubtful."

Chiefs OLB Justin Houston suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's win over the Jaguars that could cost him a few weeks, according to NFL.com's Mike Garofolo. That would take a key pass rusher out of the Chiefs D for as long as Houston misses. We'll see how long he stays sidelined. IDP owners shouldn't have much trouble locating a replacement.

Chiefs DE Chris Jones and OLB Dee Ford got ejected from Sunday's win over the Jaguars. Jones got booted for throwing a punch. Ford got the hook for committing 2 personal-foul penalties. We'll see if either will miss further time via suspension.
