The NFL is postponing Sunday's Patriots-Chiefs game, though they still expect to play it either Monday or Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "Tuesday is more likely." That would keep players from those teams -- minus Cam Newton -- available for Week 4 fantasy football lineups, though all would obviously be off the main DFS slate. We'll continue watching for further updates. A postponement to Tuesday was also the initial plan for Steelers-Titans before that game ultimately got moved to Week 7. So far, at least, this situation doesn't include multiple positive tests amid either team.
The Chiefs and TE Travis Kelce have agreed to a 4-year extension -- just hours after TE George Kittle got a new deal from the 49ers. Kelce is reportedly getting about $14 million per year, which trails the $15 million Kittle received. That makes sense considering Kittle is 26 while Kelce is 30. Of course, Kelce has still led all TEs in fantasy points in 4 straight seasons. He's now tied to the Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes through the 2025 campaign.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. He was limited in practice all week, but the knee issue doesn't sound like something that will be a big factor today.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after a limited week of practice. HC Andy Reid said Friday that Kelce's injury is "more of a bruise than anything." Unless we hear otherwise, we're expecting him to be available for his usual role on Sunday.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's dealing with a "sore knee," according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. "Shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's game but something to watch," Teicher adds. We'll see what Kelce does in Thursday's practice.
Snow is expected throughout today's Broncos-Chiefs game. There are already multiple inches of snow on the field. We're not adjusting projections for this game because there's no evidence that snow impacts scoring. But you can certainly use the weather as a tiebreaker between 2 closely ranked players.
The forecast for today's Raiders-Chiefs game calls for winds of 20-30 mph and gusts of 40+. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We wouldn't bench your usual Chiefs (Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce), but their ceilings might be capped a bit in the wind. Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Tyrell Williams are shaky fantasy plays today. Ditto for Ks Harrison Butker and Daniel Carlson.
The forecast for today's Ravens-Chiefs game calls for a 70% chance of rain. There are flash flood warnings in the area, so it sounds like the rainfall could be heavy. The good news is that wind shouldn't be a major problem, with the forecast calling for 10-13 mph. We'll keep an eye on this as we get closer to 1 pm ET kickoff and adjust the Week 3 rankings as needed.
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his collarbone injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That timetable would have him back as early as Week 6 or as late as Week 8. Kansas City's bye isn't until Week 12. We'd hang on to Hill in all fantasy leagues. He should return to WR1 status as soon as he's back on the field. WR Sammy Watkins and TE Travis Kelce will get target boosts with Hill out. We like rookie Mecole Hardman to be the 2nd most productive Chiefs WR, with Demarcus Robinson as the #3.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been medically cleared for the start of training camp. He was sidelined this spring after early-offseason ankle surgery, but it never sounded like something that would impact his 2019 campaign. Kelce is locked in as the #1 TE in fantasy football and is worth considering at the tail end of Round 1.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has stayed off the field through spring workouts while recovering from offseason ankle surgery. He told ArrowheadPride.com this week, though, that he expects to be "100 percent" by the start of training camp. We'll certainly watch for that to come true and then keep an eye out for any setbacks, but we're not currently worried about our clear #1 TE.
Per NFL Network, Chiefs TE Travis Kelce recently underwent ankle surgery. The procedure was considered a “cleanup,” and Kelce is fully expected to be ready for training camp. The 29-year-old has reached 1,000 receiving yards in 3 straight seasons. He’s missed just one game since the start of the 2014 season.
Monday night's Chiefs-Rams game has been moved to Los Angeles. The game was originally scheduled for Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, but there were concerns about the field conditions there. Consider the move back to U.S. soil good news for both offenses -- especially the Rams playing at home.
The forecast for today's Jaguars-Chiefs game calls for periods of heavy rain. The good news is that winds are expected to be only 6-7 mph. They aren't ideal conditions, but it's not enough for us to adjust our projections for these passing games. You might use the weather as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players, though.
The Chiefs have ruled TE Travis Kelce out for the rest of the Wild Card round game against the Titans with a concussion. It's his 2nd concussion of the season, following an October head injury that didn't cost Kelce any games. Demetrius Harris will see more activity in the 2nd half.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is a healthy scratch for today's finale against the Broncos. Demetrius Harris will serve as K.C.'s lead TE. RB Kareem Hunt is active, but we'd be surprised if he played much.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday and has evidently passed through the protocol. Kelce has a tough matchup against the Steelers but remains an elite TE1.
The Chiefs listed TE Travis Kelce (concussion) as a full participant in Thursday's practice. If he hasn't fully cleared the protocol yet, he's close. Kelce is now a good bet to play against the Steelers this weekend.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He now has a shot to get full clearance ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He'll likely need to return to at least a limited practice on Thursday to have a shot to receive full clearance ahead of this weekend's game against the Steelers. Consider him no better than 50/50 for that one.
