Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins reportedly re-injured his foot in Thursday's practice. The Kansas City Star's Sam Mellinger reports that Watkins is expected to miss another 4-6 weeks. That timeline would knock him out for the rest of the regular season and potentially cost him playoff games. Kansas City will move forward with WRs Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and newly signed Kelvin Benjamin behind Tyreek Hill. Conley is the only viable fantasy option and looks like a boom-or-bust WR3 the rest of the way.

The Chiefs have signed WR Kelvin Benjamin. It's an intriguing landing spot on paper, but Benjamin has simply been bad in Buffalo these past 2 seasons. And it's far too late in the season to expect him to make a fantasy impact. He can be left on your waiver wire.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It's progress after he was sidelined all last week, but Watkins' status for Sunday's game against the Ravens remains uncertain. Check back tomorrow for another update.

The Bills have released WR Kelvin Benjamin. The news sounds bigger than it actually is. Benjamin's playing time has been in decline, and he's totaled just 9 targets over the past 3 games. Zay Jones had already emerged as Buffalo's clear #1 WR. Benjamin turns just 28 in February but has now seen his receiving yardage drop each season since he entered the league. We'll see where he lands.

The Chiefs have signed RB Charcandrick West. He spent the past 4 seasons in Kansas City, averaging 3.8 yards on 266 rush attempts and catching 75 balls. West knows HC Andy Reid's offense and should help out in passing situations. Spencer Ware will remain the Chiefs' lead ball-carrier.

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.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. So Chris Conley will again be a full-time player as the #2 WR. He’s posted 2 duds and 1 big game in the 3 outings Watkins missed all or most of this season. Consider Conley a boom/bust WR4 for Week 13.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) missed practice again on Thursday. He's a long shot to play against the Raiders this weekend, leaving Chris Conley as Kansas City's #2 WR. In the 3 games Watkins has missed all or most of this year, Conley has posted lines of 4-13, 1-22 and 7-74-2. While he has the upside to have another big one this weekend, he's more likely to come away with something closer to those first 2 lines in what should be an easy win over Oakland.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) remained sidelined on Wednesday. HC Andy Reid said earlier this week that Watkins' foot is still "tender" coming off the bye week. We'll continue to monitor his status, but he shouldn't be in your Week 13 plans right now.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was held out of Friday's practice after being limited on Thursday. It's unclear if this was a planned rest day or if Watkins suffered a setback. We'll have a better idea after we get Saturday's practice report. Check back then for an update.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited on Thursday, the team's 1st official practice. He's expected back for Monday night's showdown with the Rams, but it'd be nice to see him get in at least 1 full workout. Check back tomorrow for another update on Watkins.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that WR Sammy Watkins and LB Anthony Hitchens have "a pretty good chance" to return for Monday night's game against the Rams in Mexico City, according to BJ Kissel of the team website. Watkins was inactive for Sunday's win over the Cardinals with a foot injury. Hitchens was active but didn't play a snap as he deals with a rib injury. We'll keep an eye on both players throughout the week, but expect to have Watkins and Hitchens available for Week 11 fantasy usage.

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 ILB Anthony Hitchens (rib), OLB Justin Houston (hamstring) and S Daniel Sorensen (knee) are active for today’s game against the Cardinals. Hitchens is the only real IDP option here. There’s pass-rushing upside to Houston, but we can’t count on his normal snap allotment.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. He’s tentatively expected back for next Monday night’s showdown with the Rams. Chris Conley will step in as Kansas City’s #2 WR today and is an intriguing flier in DFS and deeper season-long leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is "unlikely" to play against the Cardinals today. He adds that "it's mostly a precaution, and Watkins should be fine next week." The Chiefs visit the Rams in Week 11 before a Week 12 bye.

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 WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals after returning to a limited practice on Friday. It’d make a ton of sense for Kansas City to hold him out of this easily winnable game, but we’ll get his official status around noon ET on Sunday. If active, Watkins will be a risk/reward fantasy play. If not, Chris Conley will step in as the Chiefs’ #2 WR and be a viable flier.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Cardinals this weekend. We just removed Watkins from the Week 10 Rankings and bumped up WR Chris Conley.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins injured his foot in Sunday's win over the Browns, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "While it’s not a serious injury, it may impact his status for Sunday as KC plans for the long run," Rapoport adds. We'll look for more details on Watkins' injury and monitor his practice participation this week. If he can't play against the Cardinals on Sunday, Chris Conley would step in as Kansas City's #2 WR.
