Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Rest of Season Rankings
Tyreek Hill Note

Hill has looked just fine since returning despite playing largely with Matt Moore. He's a threat to hit a home run on any given play, so should remain a top-five receiver if Patrick Mahomes returns shortly as he is expected to.

Travis Kelce Note

Kelce scored the most fantasy points of any tight end in the last five seasons last year. He may shatter that clip this season and approach Gronk's enormous 2017 total of 331 PPR points if Tyreek Hill were to suffer an injury.. Kelce wasn't far off at 295 last year. If he can jump another 40 points, we'd be looking at the WR1 if he qualified for that possession. Kelce should continue to prove he was well worth a second-round pick this year.

Patrick Mahomes Note

Mahomes dislocated his kneecap on Thursday night against the Broncos, and early reports are the best-case scenario is a three-week absence. The worst case scenario is immediate surgery and Mahomes being lost for the season, which would obviously be a huge downgrade to all Chiefs players. Regardless, in the short term, Mahomes owners need to make other arrangements. Matt Moore should be serviceable in two-quarterback leagues given the offensive system, but he's hardly an option otherwise.

Damien Williams Note

Williams' season has been disastrous, but it appears he might finally provide the most value right when fantasy owners need him. With a bad LeSean McCoy fumble opening the door for Williams, the veteran shined in Week 9 against the Dolphins, highlighted by a 91-yard touchdown run. He'll still split touches with McCoy and perhaps others, but overall, it's possible he can become a reliable RB2 once again.

Sammy Watkins Note

Watkins added a hamstring injury to his shoulder woes in Week 5 against the Colts, and appears likely to miss at least a little time. Outside of Week 1, when few people were starting him, Watkins had been a major disappointment despite the absence of Tyreek Hill. Now with injury concerns of his own, Watkins is still a rosterable option, but likely not one that you'll be able to or want to start anytime soon.

Darwin Thompson Note

Both of the Williams backs for Kansas City were out and LeSean McCoy hasn't been a lead back all season, no matter who was hurt, but it was't Thompson who led the Chiefs in snaps. Instead, it was Spencer Ware. You can't rely on Thompson this week versus Denver.

Harrison Butker Note

DeAndre Washington Note

Considering Josh Jacobs wasn't ruled out early, and was a true game-time decision, it is clearly quite possible that he plays in Week 15. If that were to happen, Washington would be entirely unstartable. With that said, the upside for him this week if Jacobs is out, makes Washington the top pickup of the week. With another 20 touches this week versus the Jags' horrendous defense, we'd legitimately be talking about a fringe-RB1.

Mecole Hardman Note

Hardman can't be used this week because of bye, nor is he trustworthy when he returns because of limited snaps and targets, but if the Chiefs plug him into the lineup finally, we could be looking at a potential league-winner so he warrants a stash if you have the roster space.

Demarcus Robinson Note

Tyreek Hill will eventually come back which will leave Robinson and Hardman to compete for snaps so there will be few weeks where it is safe to start him. With that said, he should pile up enough points to finish the year as a top 50 wide receiver.
