Latest Player Updates

Patrick Mahomes’ MRI confirmed he did suffer a dislocated kneecap during Thursday’s game against the Denver Broncos. At this time, no additional significant damage has occurred to the MVP’s knee. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: This is the best news fantasy owners could expect to hear after Mahomes left Thursday’s game and didn't return. He will still miss some time under center, so plan to be without him for at least 3-5 weeks. Kansas City has their Bye in Week 12 so the earliest we’d see Patrick suit up could be in Week 13. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce should still be started in most leagues, but tread lightly with other Kansas City skill players.

Fantasy Impact: Shepard remains in concussion protocol and is currently day-to-day. He has suffered two concussions in a four-week span and is hoping to return the field for Week 8. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton will lead the Giants wide receiver corps in Sunday’s Week 7 matchup against the Cardinals.

Matt Moore completed 10-of-19 passes for 117 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs ‘ 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Moore came on in the second quarter following Patrick Mahomes leaving with a knee injury. Moore is the starter until Mahomes returns and will be a decent fantasy option. Initial estimates have Mahomes out at least three weeks pending MRI results.

The Denver Broncos D/ST allowed 271yards and posted one sack in a 30-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Denver was repeatedly put in bad situations by a struggling offense Thursday. Kansas City had a short field often and scored a defensive touchdown. There will be better days for this unit.

Brandon McManus misses his lone field goal attempt in the Broncos’ 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: McManus will not see enough chances in a struggling offense to merit fantasy consideration.

Noah Fant had one reception for seven yards on five targets in the Broncos’ 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Fant dropped three passes out of five targets and continues to fail to find consistency for Denver. He can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups currently.

Emmanuel Sanders has five receptions for 60 yards on six targets in the Broncos’ 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders has been surpassed by Courtland Sutton for the WR1 role in Denver, but still holds flex appeal due to a narrow target tree for the Broncos.

Royce Freeman rushed 10 times for 35 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos’ 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday. He also had four receptions for 32 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Impact: Freeman put together a useful fantasy line despite Denver’s offensive struggles Thursday. He remains in the flex discussion due to solid usage in the passing game as well as on the ground.

Courtland Sutton had six receptions for 87 yards on eight targets in the Broncos' 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Sutton had another solid game even with Denver's offense stalling Thursday. He is in the WR2/flex conversation going forward.

Phillip Lindsay rushed 11 times for 36 yards and brought in his lone target for a loss of four yards in the Broncos' 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Lindsay failed to generate anything along with the rest of the Denver offense. He remains in flex consideration going forward.

Joe Flacco completed 21-of-34 passes for 213 yards and lost one fumble in the Broncos' 30-6 loss to the Chiefs Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Flacco was under constant duress and was sacked eight time in a crushing loss. He is best left out of fantasy lineups.

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST allowed 205 yards and post nine sacks and a fumble-recovery touchdown in a 30-6 win over the Denver Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The much-maligned Kansas City D/ST limited Denver's ground game and gave Joe Flacco no time to throw while piling up sacks Thursday. This was a great performance against a bad offense and is unlikely to become the norm.

Harrison Butker was 3-for-3 on field goal and 3-for-3 on extra point attempts in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Butker put up another perfect performance Thursday and remains a top fantasy option despite the injury to Patrick Mahomes (knee).

Darrel Williams rushed twice for one yard and brought in both of his targets for five yards in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams is the clear third option behind LeSean McCoy and Damien Williams and has limited value outside of injury.

Category: Game Recaps


Byron Pringle was not targeted in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Pringle is not a factor for fantasy with Tyreek Hill back in the lineup for Kansas City.

Category: Game Recaps


Demarcus Robinson had three receptions for 31 yards on five targets in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson continues to see targets without managing to do much with them. He is best left out of lineups.

Category: Game Recaps


Mecole Hardman had two receptions for 28 yards and one touchdown on three targets in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Hardman found the end zone on his three targets Thursday and is the best fantasy option at WR for the Chiefs behind Tyree Hill with Sammy Watkins missing time.

Category: Game Recaps


LeSean McCoy rushed 12 times for 64 yards and had two receptions for 12 yards in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday. He was targeted twice.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy is clearly the best option for the Chiefs on the ground and saw two opportunities in the passing game Thursday. He remains an RB2/flex option.

Category: Game Recaps


Damien Williams rushed nine times for seven yards and lost one yard on two receptions in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday. He was targeted twice.

Fantasy Impact: Williams continues to look terrible rushing the ball and saw very limited work in the passing game Thursday. He has become a very shaky flex option going forward.

Category: Game Recaps


Travis Kelce had six receptions for 44 yards on eight targets in the Chiefs' 30-6 win over the Broncos Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Kelce had another floor game Thursday as the Chiefs dismantled the Broncos. He remains an elite TE1 at a messy position despite the injury to Patrick Mahomes (knee).
