Chiefs activate Nick Bolton (wrist) from IR

As expected, the Chiefs have activated LB Nick Bolton (wrist) off IR. He should be a good bet to return to his starting role, especially with LB Drue Tranquill (concussion) ruled out. Bolton sits inside the top 20 of our Week 14 LB rankings, though not quite as high as he did at the start of the season.

The Chiefs are expected to activate LB Nick Bolton (wrist) from IR ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills, according to Bolton put in three full practices this week but will need to be activated before 4 p.m. ET Saturday to be eligible to play. If he's back, we'd use him in most IDP cases. You'll find Bolton near LB1 territory in our Week 14 LB rankings. Kansas City has ruled LB Drue Tranquill (concussion) out for the game. But that won't really matter if Bolton's back. Tranquill has been filling in for Bolton but plays a minimal role when Bolton's available.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Chiefs LB Nick Bolton will need surgery on his dislocated right wrist and is expected to miss "roughly two months." That would put Bolton's estimated return at Week 16 (Dec. 25) against the Raiders. Unfortunately, that timeline means Bolton is probably worth dropping in most redraft IDP leagues -- unless you can stash him in an IR spot. Drue Tranquill should reclaim a full-time role while Bolton's out. He'll be regularly usable in fantasy lineups but doesn't match Bolton's scoring upside.
