The Chiefs are using their franchise tag to keep OLB Dee Ford from reaching free agency. Reports have also surfaced that the team is trying to trade OLB Justin Houston. Ford enjoyed a breakthrough 2018, with 55 total tackles and 13 sacks -- both career highs. He also led all edge players with 78 total pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. Houston has reached 9 sacks each of the past 2 years but has also lost 4+ games to injury in 3 of the past 4 seasons. At 30, Houston's likely on the downside of his career. We'll see where this offseason takes him. He's worth holding in dynasty leagues that weigh sacks/pressures decently. You're not likely to find much trade value in him, and Houston has continued to flash high weekly upside when healthy.

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 have ruled out CB Charvarius Ward (thumb) for Sunday's game against the Chargers. They'll also be without DE Alex Okafor (hamstring).

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (neck) is active for today's game against the Titans. He carries attractive sack upside after missing the past 2 games. CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) in inactive, missing his 4th straight game since sustaining a thumb injury. That's good news for Titans slot WR Adam Humphries.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (neck) and CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning.

The Chiefs get DT Chris Jones back from a groin injury for today's game against the Vikings. He had missed the past 3 games. DE Frank Clark (neck) and CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) are inactive once again, though.
