Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Tyreek Hill Note

Hill doesn't get the targets that some of the other top receivers do - he has seen exactly six targets in four of his five games - and he has yet to top 100 yards receiving. But he's scored in every game this season and is a threat to reach the end zone anytime he touches the ball. He's a top-three options most week and going forward.

Travis Kelce Note

Kelce caught all six of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the opener against the Texans. He's a dominant force at the position and at worst the second option at tight end. Absent injury, it should be another fantastic season for Kelce and pretty much every part of the Chiefs offense.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Note

Edwards-Helaire has had a fine season, although perhaps not the dominant one fantasy owners foresaw after Week 1. But now, with the Chiefs signing Le'Veon Bell, Edward-Helaire's value takes an immediate hit. He'll still get plenty of carries and be the back to roster in Kansas City, but he's no longer an RB1. Consider him a strong RB2 for now until we know exactly how the backfield will break down.

Patrick Mahomes II Note

Mahomes looked like his typical dominant self in the opener against the Texans, throwing three touchdown passes and making plenty of incredible throws from off-balanced positions. If there's a negative to be drawn, it's how much the Chiefs relied on the run and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, which could take away some upside. But don't kid yourself, Mahomes is obviously a top-two option at the position.

Le'Veon Bell Note

Bell signed with the Chiefs on October 15th, and will now be the 1B to Clyde Edwards-Helaire's 1A. It wasn't the best spot for Bell to land, in that there is a younger and more talented back ahead of him. But he'll play for an elite offense, one that is capable of utilizing his skill set. Consider Bell a strong Flex play going forward.

Mecole Hardman Note

It's clear the Chiefs are just not comfortable putting Hardman into the starting lineup, even with Sammy Watkins out of it. Instead, they've played Demarcus Robinson over him. The only time we could see Hardman in a fantasy-reliable role is if Tyreek Hill were to miss time. We don't hold onto wide receiver handcuffs, so feel free to drop the hyper-efficient receiver.

Sammy Watkins Note
Sammy Watkins photo 165. Sammy Watkins WR - (vs . LAC)
Prior to getting hurt against the Raiders, Watkins had seen at least seven targets in 3-of-4 games, highlighting his role in the offense. Even with him out of the lineup, we saw Demarcus Robinson targeted quite a bit. Being tied to the Chiefs offense is something that needs to be valued. We also saw Mecole Hardman struggle to get on the field, even with Watkins out, so it's not as if his role is in danger. If he is on the waiver wire, snag him. If he's on someone's team, have him thrown in as part of a bigger deal.

Kansas City Chiefs Note

Harrison Butker Note

Butker led the NFL in field-goal attempts and conversions last year, and the Chiefs are nearly always among the league leaders in field-goal attempts. Wait on kicker, obviously, but Butker will be one of the best yet again.

Demarcus Robinson Note

Robinson could have had two touchdowns in the opener against the Texans, but was instead limited to just three catches and 20 yards. He's in a rotation with Mecole Hardman as the third wide receiver and doesn't need to be rostered anywhere.

Darrel Williams Note

Williams got off to a lackluster start against the Texans in Week 1, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire looked incredible handling a massive workload. Williams is simply a handcuff, albeit one who would have a ton of value in a high-end offense should anything happen to Edwards-Helaire.

Darwin Thompson Note

Thompson has talent and plays in an outstanding system for running backs, but there's almost no chance he'll have fantasy value this year. Clyde Edwards-Helaire will lead the way in the Kansas City backfield, and DeAndre Washington and Darrel Williams will also compete for touches. Thompson would have potential if he ever saw enough of an opportunity, but there's little chance of that happening in 2020.
