Fantasy Impact: Williams will be ready to go for a Monday night showdown with the Ravens. He's nothing more than a handcuff to Clyde Edwards-Helaire for fantasy purposes.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (concussion) is practicing on Saturday ahead of the Chiefs Monday night showdown with the Ravens. (Source: Nate Taylor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It’s unclear if Watkins has cleared the concussion protocol, but he’s practicing Saturday nonetheless. A player is allowed to practice even if they have not cleared the protocol that allows them to play in a game. Watkins could be listed as questionable heading into Monday night’s game against the Ravens. He’s a tough start, as you’d have to have a backup option like Mecole Hardman on your roster as well to insert into your lineup should Watkins be inactive.

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST had one interceptions, two sacks, and allowed 479 yards in a 23-20 overtime win over the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Chiefs did just enough against Chargers' rookie QB Justin Herbert to get a win Sunday. This unit is a strong fantasy option but may be best left on the bench next week against Baltimore.

Harrison Butker was 3-for-3 on field goal and 0-for-1 on extra point attempts in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Butker hit two 58-yard field goals Sunday including the game-winner in overtime. He is an elite kicking option for fantasy squads moving forward.

Darwin Thompson rushed four times for 21 yards and did not bring his only target in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Thompson saw a few looks with Darrel Williams (ankle) exiting Sunday's game. His value is low outside of an extended absence ahead of him on Kansas City's depth chart.

Demarcus Robinson had three receptions for 28 yards on four targets in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson managed just 28 yards on his four targets Sunday and is best left out of lineups.

Mecole Hardman had two receptions for 30 yards on three targets in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday. He added a two-point conversion catch and had one rush for three yards.

Fantasy Impact: Hardman saw more action on offense this week, but it still isn't enough to rely on consistently. He is best left on benches for now unless his role grows.

Travis Kelce had nine receptions for 90 yards and one touchdown on 14 targets in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Kelce posted a big fantasy game in Sunday's win. He remains a TE1 for next week's matchup with Baltimore.

Tyreek Hill had five receptions for 99 yards and one touchdown on 11 targets in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday. He added one rush for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Hill made his week with a 54-yard touchdown Sunday. He remains a WR1 going forward.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed 10 times for 38 yards and had six receptions for 32 yards in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Impact: Edwards-Helair didn't produce much yardage Sunday, but his passing game usage was nice to see for owners. His six catches saved his day in PPR leagues. He remains a RB1 for next week's tilt with the Ravens.

Patrick Mahomes completed 27-of-47 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' 23-20 overtime win over the Chargers Sunday. He added six rushes for 54 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Mahome posted yet another nice fantasy day in a tight win over the Chargers Sunday. He remains a must-start for next week's matchup with Baltimore.

Chiefs' DT Khalen Sauders dislocated his elbow in Week 1 and will miss approximately one month. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Saunders, listed as RDT2 on the Chiefs' depth chart, was drafted in the third round last year and accounted for 11 tackles and one sack in 2019. Fantasy owners are still rolling out the Chiefs' D/ST as a starter against a Chargers offense that wasn't very exciting last Sunday.

Frank Clark racked up three tackles and a sack as the Chiefs won their first matchup of the season 34-20, over the Houston Texans on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Clark continued his momentum from 2019 for last year's superbowl champions with a strong performance against the Texans. With teammate and fellow defensive end Alex Okafor picking up a hamstring strain in Thursday's game, it could mean that Clark sees the field more next Sunday in the Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Chiefs tight end Nick Keizer is active for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football. (Source: Nate Taylor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is Keizer's third year in the league, but Thursday night will be his NFL debut. He is unlikely to have much fantasy value unless there is an injury to Travis Kelce.

Fantasy Impact: Colbert played two seasons with San Francisco and then one with Miami prior to joining the Chiefs this offseason. The former 7th round pick will look to get picked up by another team in need of secondary help this season.

RB Damien Williams has elected to opt out of the 2020 season. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In a statement from Chiefs GM Brett Veach, "As an organization. we certainly understand and respect Damien's choice, knowing it was made in the best interest of his family." "He means a lot to our football team as a player and a person, and we're going to miss having him around this season." Williams, coming off a monster performance in the playoffs was projected to be the Chiefs starting RB and form a one-two punch with first round selection Clyde Edwards Helaire. Williams is set to rejoin the Chiefs for the 2021 campaign. Edwards Helaire has a clear path to serve as the Chiefs top running back, and is projected to be a top-10 pick in redraft leagues.
