Eric Berry (heel) did not practice Thursday.

There was some hope Berry would return this week, but he is going to miss his third game in a row. The Chiefs have given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks so far this season.
Sep 20 - 12:55 PM

Eric Berry (heel) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Berry has yet to practice this season. Jimmy Garoppolo's matchup will be easier at Arrowhead if Berry is unable to return. George Kittle should also see more open space down the seamsif Berry indeed sits this one out.
Sep 19 - 12:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eric Berry (heel) is "improving" and "could practice this week."

The Chiefs are 2-0, but they have given up 860 passing yards and six touchdowns in those wins. Berry would not fix all of their issues, but his return would be a big boost for Kansas City's defense. The Chiefs gets the 49ers at home this week.
Sep 17 - 11:09 AM

Chris Conley caught 2-of-2 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers.

Conley's score was a bullet on a first quarter post route. Conley got the inside track on Artie Burns. It was a nice play, but Conley has just three targets through two games. Patrick Mahomes is working miracles, but he can't make Conley fantasy relevant.
Sep 16 - 6:13 PM

Sammy Watkins caught 6-of-7 targets for 100 yards in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers, adding 31 yards on an end around.

The Chiefs made a point of getting Watkins going after his quiet Week 1, targeting him five times in the first 16 minutes. Despite the obvious intent, Watkins' usage did not feel forced. He was running fluidly in the Chiefs' high-octane attack. Watkins is going to be a feast-or-famine player behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, but today serves as a good reminder of his unusual upside for a WR3/4.
Sep 16 - 5:33 PM

Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 75 yards in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers, adding a five-yard touchdown reception.

Hunt was running with power, but he simply wasn't needed for a monster workload with Patrick Mahomes getting whatever he wanted through the air. The aggressive Mahomes has now found Hunt for just one catch through two games after Hunt averaged 3.5 receptions (throwing out a Week 17 cameo) last season. Hunt's ceiling remains sky-high in the Chiefs' high-voltage offense, but his weekly floor is going to be a little lower than it was as a rookie.
Sep 16 - 5:29 PM

Tyreek Hill caught 5-of-6 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers.

Hill wasn't even targeted in the first half, so 5/90/1 was quite an accomplishment, even if that's quiet by Hill's standards. Hill's score was a 29-yarder where he got several steps on Artie Burns down the left sideline. Hill will try to torment the 49ers in the Chiefs' Week 3 home opener.
Sep 16 - 5:15 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-10 targets for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Steelers.

One week after he was held to one catch against the Chargers, Kelce erupted for just the third two-touchdown game of his career. Kelce split CB Cameron Sutton and LB Jon Bostic on his first score, corralling an absolute laser from Patrick Mahomes. For the second, he caught a low throw near the goal line for a 25-yarder. Kelce will get the 49ers in what could be a high-scoring Week 3 affair.
Sep 16 - 4:53 PM

Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-28 passes for 326 yards and six touchdowns in the Chiefs' 42-37, Week 2 win over the Steelers.

With 10 touchdowns, Mahomes now owns the record for the most scores through the first two weeks of the season. Mahomes was just reaving souls, ripping chunk plays whenever and wherever he wanted. Unlike last week's Tyreek Hill-dominated affair, Mahomes got everyone involved, finding each of Hill, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins for at least 90 yards. Mahomes was throwing lasers into tight coverage in the red zone, finding Kelce and Chris Conley for impressive scores. Mahomes is the real deal and could not have a better setup on a videogame. He will look to stay scorching as an elite QB1 in Week 3 against the 49ers.
Sep 16 - 4:25 PM

Chiefs declared SS Eric Berry, RB Darrel Williams, CB Charvarius Ward, LB Ben Niemann, OL Austin Reiter, OL Kahlil McKenzie and DL Justin Hamilton inactive for Week 2 against the Steelers.

Berry's status is clear as mud going forward. His absence is immense for the Chiefs' talent-less secondary.
Sep 16 - 11:29 AM

Eric Berry (heel) remained sidelined at Friday's practice and is doubtful for Week 2 against the Steelers.

Berry hasn't practiced all week. At this point, it would be utterly shocking if he lined up with the Chiefs' secondary Sunday. Philip Rivers picked apart Kansas City for 424-3-1 and 8.3 YPA in Week 1. Roethlisberger, who returned to practice Friday, has a terrific chance to do the same.
Sep 14 - 1:10 PM

Eric Berry (heel) did not practice Thursday.

At this point, it would be a surprise if he is ready to face the Steelers on Sunday. The Chargers let the Chiefs' overmatched defense off the hook with several drops in Week 1. They are unlikely to be as lucky in Pittsburgh this week.
Sep 13 - 12:51 PM

Eric Berry (heel) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Berry missed Week 1, and the Chiefs were getting shredded over the top of the defense, but the Chargers' pass-catchers couldn't catch the ball. Berry remains day to day. His absence would be felt against the Steelers in Week 2.
Sep 12 - 12:55 PM

Spencer Ware rushed three times for 32 yards in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the Chargers, adding an eight-yard reception.

Ware ran as Kareem Hunt's clear-cut backup/change of pace in his first appearance since 2016. He got out-touched 16-4. Ware will have the occasional outburst but lacks standalone fantasy value.
Sep 9 - 8:34 PM

Sammy Watkins caught 3-of-5 targets for 21 yards in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the Chargers.

Watkins was targeted on Patrick Mahomes' first pass of the game but ended up getting out-targeted by both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. That's not surprising, of course. Watkins had to contend with a few poor throws from Mahomes, though he did catch a blazing, low fastball for his second reception. Watkins is going to have big games in the Chiefs' high-octane offense, but they will be harder to see coming than Hill or Kelce's. He is best treated as a WR4 in fantasy.
