  Chiefs | Gerrit Prince in a boot    Sat Jul 20, 10:06 AM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Gerrit Prince (undisclosed) was wearing a walking boot and did not participate in practice Friday, July 19.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of UAB in 2022 (Jaguars), Prince was added by the Chiefs about a year ago and spent the 2023 season on their practice squad. He was a long shot to make the 53-man roster this year, especially after the Chiefs drafted a potential star TE in Jared Wiley from TCU in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL draft.

  Chiefs | Xavier Worthy back on the field    Thu Jul 18, 01:57 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Xavier Worthy (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, July 17.

Footballguys view: Hamstring injuries can linger for speedy players like Worthy. He can absolutely fly down the field, and in this offense that could mean a bunch of big plays. Let's see Worthy stay healthy and get up to speed in the NFL game. We love him as a late-round flier (WR4/WR5) in fantasy leagues because of his skill and his quarterback.

  Chiefs | Chiefs signing Kyle Sheets    Wed Jul 17, 12:10 PM

Free-agent WR Kyle Sheets (Saints) was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs to an undisclosed contract on Wednesday, July 17, per source.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Slippery Rock, Sheets is a former quarterback with good size and a nose for the end zone. He didn't last past minicamp with the Saints, but now has a chance to land on the practice squad of the league's best offense. That puts him on our radar in crazy super deep dynasty formats.

  Chiefs | Hollywood Brown Second In Line For Targets Behind Kelce?    Mon Jul 15, 03:40 PM

The Chiefs revamped their receiver depth this offseason, and the player who should receive plenty of targets next to tight end Travis Kelce is Hollywood Brown.

Footballguys view: As The Athletic's Nate Taylor explained, Kansas City wants to regain its potency when Patrick Mahomes throws deep. Known for his speed and improved route running, Brown should be effective in the intermediate and deep areas of the field. Taylor noted that Brown was impressive during the offseason program by establishing a strong connection with Mahomes. The Chiefs will likely need to rely on Brown early in the season. Second-year player Rashee Rice could be suspended to start the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Rookie Xavier Worthy will be adjusting to the league, too.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce still effective    Sun Jul 14, 02:40 AM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce's 10.6 yards per catch in 2023 were a career low, but his 65.6 receiving yards per game and 51 first downs ranked first among tight ends.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs' offense can do whatever they want. Last season, the Chiefs peppered defenses with underneath passes while taking some deep shots here and there. Kelce was there to be reliable on those shorter passes, and he certainly knows how to move the chains. His streak of seven straight 1,000-yard season was broken last year (984 yards), but Kelce should push for over 1,000 once again in 2024.

  Chiefs | Carson Wentz seeking to improve    Mon Jul 8, 11:37 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Carson Wentz has fully embraced his role as backup, but he seeks to improve in order to play a bigger role in the future. Wentz signed a one-year deal in hopes of competing for a starting job elsewhere next year.

Footballguys view: Head coach Andy Reid prefers to have a veteran with years of NFL experience as a backup for Mahomes, mainly to give him a study partner and sounding board for things he might be seeing in the video room or on the practice or game field. The Chiefs have had veterans Chad Henne, Matt Moore, and Blaine Gabbert serve as Mahomes' backups before Wentz, who signed with the team during the offseason. The Chiefs are now his fifth NFL team and fourth in as many seasons. He made 93 starts in eight seasons with the Eagles, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Commanders, and Los Angeles Rams. In other words, Wentz fits the mold here.

  Chiefs | Jared Wiley flashed potential    Sun Jun 30, 03:08 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Jared Wiley 'showed strong receiving skills' during OTAs, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Dynasty players in tight end premium leagues need to take note of Wiley, who could replace Noah Gray as the heir apparent to Travis Kelce. Gray has been developing well for a fifth round pick, but that could mean he'll get more in free agency next year than the Chiefs are willing to pay, especially with Wiley impressing early on. Wiley is a strong contested catch player who shines in the red zone, leading all FBS tight ends in touchdowns last year.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes did not go deep often in 2023    Fri Jun 28, 12:22 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes had only 13% of his completed passes go at least 20 yards in the air last season, which was the lowest percentage of his career.

Footballguys view: The good news is that the Chiefs added Marquise Brown and Xavier Worthy in the offseason. Worthy has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, but all reports say that Brown and Mahomes have already developed good chemistry. Fantasy players are believers, as Mahomes is still going in the top three quarterbacks even though he didn't finish near that level last year.

  Chiefs | Wide Receiver Nikko Remigio Working His Way Onto The Radar    Mon Jun 24, 05:27 PM

Nikko Remigio -- in part because of Xavier Worthy's injured hamstring -- received a good run with the first unit during OTAs and minicamp, and he made the most of his opportunities. The challenge for him during training camp will be to make enough plays to crack a playing group that includes Worthy, Marquise Brown, Rashee Rice, Justin Watson, Skyy Moore, and Kadarius Toney.

Footballguys view: ChiefsBlitz.com's Nick Athan told us two weeks ago that Remigio was a player to watch based on his work in OTAs, and now we can add ESPN.com's Adam Teicher to the list of those paying attention. Remigio still has an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster come September, but Teicher contends one edge the receiver might have is his ability as a kickoff returner. He joined the Chiefs last year as an undrafted rookie and spent the year on injured reserve.

  Chiefs | KC bracing for Rashee Rice suspension    Fri Jun 21, 01:02 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Rashee Rice could be facing a 'multi-game' suspension, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said it 'doesn't look like [Rice] is going to be part of that start of the season,' adding that the team is 'bracing' for the wideout to miss multiple games.

Footballguys view: Rice's ADP in best ball drafts already has a multi-game absence baked in - as does Xavier Worthy and Marquise Brown's price in early drafts. If Rice's suspension is only 2 or 3 games, then Rice's ADP should go up and the others should take a hit. Curiously, the ADPs of all have been going up, showing the optimism about the Chiefs passing game for the upcoming season.

  Chiefs | Xavier Worthy Should Be Good To Go For Training Camp    Tue Jun 18, 04:32 PM

Rookie WR Xavier Worthy did not practice for much of the offseason because of a sore hamstring so the Chiefs didn't get an extensive look at him. The Chiefs said they were being cautious and that barring a setback he should be good to go at training camp.

Footballguys view: According to ESPN.com's Adam Teicher, Worthy had an up-and-down performance at the team's rookie camp shortly after he was drafted. He dropped some passes the first day but responded with some big plays at the next practice. As Footballguy Jason Wood put it this week, "Worthy has the requisite skill set to give Patrick Mahomes II a legitimate outside star again, something the team has longed for since letting Tyreek Hill walk." Still, Worthy is getting WR3 treatment on Underdog, just two spots after teammate Marquise Brown. That price is going to be worth watching.

  Chiefs | Marquise Brown not wasting time    Sat Jun 15, 09:59 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Marquise Brown earned praise from QB Patrick Mahomes during minicamp. 'I thought Hollywood did a great job coming in and being prepared and learning really fast,' Mahomes said.

Footballguys view: Brown broke out in 2021 with the Ravens but never made the hoped-for impact after he was traded to Arizona. But things are looking up in Kansas City. Insider Nick Athan from ChiefsBlitz.com told us earlier today that Brown has been "a perfect fit" since signing with the team in March. Athan characterized Brown as the team's No. 1 receiver, ahead of Rashee Rice and rookie Xavier Worthy. He's being drafted as such, with a WR33 Average Draft Position on Underdog. We rank Brown as WR40, ahead of Rice (WR42) and Worthy (WR43). However, Brown could move further ahead as we gain clarity on possible discipline for Rice's recent off-field issues.

  Chiefs | Xavier Worthy still unable to practice    Sat Jun 15, 12:22 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Xavier Worthy (hamstring) remained sidelined by a sore hamstring during minicamp.

Footballguys view: We shouldn't move Worthy down on redraft boards based on this news - his rookie uncertainty has already been priced in - but if he is still sidelined when camp opens or has a setback, we should move him down at least a few rounds and move Marquise Brown up a few. Brown could end up being a big value in 2024 drafts if Worthy isn't ready to play a big role in his rookie year.

  Chiefs | Joe Thuney should be ready for season    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Kansas City Chiefs OG Joe Thuney's (pectoral) availability for training camp is uncertain at this point, but he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2024 season, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Thuney is the anchor of the Chiefs offensive line. We'll monitor this, but not worry too much if he misses part of camp, since that appears to be within the range of expectations.

  Chiefs | KC to push ball downfield more    Fri Jun 14, 10:53 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said the team will push the ball downfield more in 2024. 'This is probably the most comfortable I think I've felt of just being able to not let something affect me,'' Mahomes said. 'When you go up against [Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo in practice], you're not going to be right 100% of the time, and there's been times where I've lost on blitzes and Spags gets me with the new pressure that he's working on, and I think it's just being able to get the ball out of my hand, get it to the checkdown or wherever that is and then live to play another play.''

Footballguys view: The addition of Marquise Brown and Xavier Worthy in the offseason should allow Mahomes to fulfill this promise. Worthy has missed OTAs with a hamstring injury, but is expected to be okay for camp. Brown has only averaged 13 games played a year in his five season career, but right now he is probably the better durability bet of the two new speed wideouts in best ball drafts.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce told reporters on Tuesday, June 11, that he 'really cannot put a timeframe on (retirement)' intends to 'keep going until the wheels fall off,' according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Kelce and the Chiefs agreed on a new deal this offseason that bumped up his compensation through the end of the 2025 season, so it seems likely we'll get at least two more years from one of the critical pieces of the Chiefs' three Super Bowl wins. The Footballguys staff has expectations. Kelce is our TE1, ahead of Detroit's Sam LaPorta, on the 2024 Draft Rankings.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco logged 44 catches and 49 targets in 2023 after finishing with 13 catches on 14 targets as a rookie.

Footballguys view: Pacheco proved that he could be a better receiver in 2023, and we expect him to have a similar output as a receiver in 2024. Pushing for 1,000 yards rushing with around 45-50 receptions means Pacheco should produce like a low-end RB1 for Fantasy GMs.

Free-agent WR Mecole Hardman (Chiefs) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, June 6.

Kansas City Chiefs first-round draft choice WR Xavier Worthy signed a four-year contract with the Chiefs Wednesday, June 5, worth $13.79 million. The deal includes a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: Worthy is one of the fastest players on the planet, and he could gather in deep shots from QB Patrick Mahomes regularly. He's a WR4 with Fantasy GMs at this time, but the rookie could be a low-end WR2 or flex play if he hits.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Rashee Rice was allegedly involved in an assault at a Dallas nightclub on May 6, but Dallas police shared news on Tuesday, May 21, that the injured person does not want to press charges and has signed an affidavit of non-prosecution.

Footballguys view: Rice is working with the Chiefs this week as they begin their offseason practices. He was arrested last month for his involvement in a March 30 six-car crash in Dallas that left at least seven people injured. He is facing one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury, and six counts of collision involving injury, according to police. Even with the assault charge likely going away, Rice facing some form of league discipline for the accident still seems likely.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Rashee Rice is present at OTAs and will participate in all activities despite legal issues stemming from the offseason, according to sources Monday, May 20.

Footballguys view: Rice had been limited to virtual meetings with the team during the early stages of their offseason program. He faces eight felony charges for his role in a March car crash in Dallas. Police in that city said that Rice is also under investigation for an alleged assault earlier this month. During the draft, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell indicated that the league would let the legal process play out before discussing possible discipline of Rice. The uncertainty has diminished Rice's value. Rookie Xavier Worthy and Marquise Brown have moved ahead of the second-year man in our rankings and in Average Draft Position.

The Chiefs have Isiah Pacheco as the lead back, and guys like Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Keontay Ingram (who will still hold out hope for in deep dynasty formats) will compete for reserve touches.
