Factoid: KC rushing
You’ve got the hand it to Matt Nagy. He’s hanging in there with those wide receiver running plays. They rarely amount to much, but he keeps calling them.
Kansas City WR Toney “good to go” for season opener
Kansas City head coach Andy Reid said over the weekend that wide receiver KADARIUS TONEY is “good to go” heading into the season opener on Thursday evening against the Detroit Lions.… More Toney missed most of training camp and all the offseason after undergoing another knee procedure. Reid added that Toney was “moving around pretty good”. Kansas City is hopeful that Toney can become the true No. 1 receiver they haven’t had since trading TYREEK HILL during the 2022 offseason, but his injury history tells fantasy owners to proceed with caution.

Kansas City WR James getting more work amid wideout injuries
Kansas City wide receiver RICHIE JAMES could be in for an increased workload in the weeks ahead as the team’s wide receiver corps continues to deal with injuries. After signing with… More Kansas City in April, James looked impressive during training camp and the team’s first preseason game. With fellow wide receiver JUSTYN ROSS dinged up during Tuesday’s practice (he did return on Wednesday) and KADARIUS TONEY still out, Ross has more time to get comfortable with PATRICK MAHOMES. While the wideout room in Kansas City is deep, Ross is worth keeping an eye on. Less

Kansas City WR Toney aggravates knee injury
Kansas City wide receiver KADARIUS TONEY aggravated an injury to his knee on Sunday and will miss practice time in the weeks ahead. Toney is reportedly expected to be ready to… More roll for the start of the regular season against the upstart Detroit Lions. Toney, who underwent an offseason cleanup procedure on his knee, is expected to be a centerpiece of the Kansas City offense this season. Unfortunately, Toney has yet to play a full NFL season because of injuries. Less
Fantasy News: Skyy Moore
Skyy Moore had a lesser rookie year, but I’m not giving up on him just yet. He chipped in a few plays, and I think there’s still a chance he’ll emerge.
Toney the next WR1 for Kansas City?
Kansas City won the Super Bowl last year without a traditional No. 1 wide receiver. Heading into this season, Kansas City GM Brett Veach says that he and the team have… More “high hopes” for wide receiver KADARIUS TONEY. Kansas City acquired Toney, a first-round pick in 2021, last October for a third-round pick and a sixth-round pick in 2023. Time will tell if Toney can become the potential successor to former star wide receiver TYREEK HILL. Less
Factoid: Skyy Moore
There will be some adjustments made to Kansas City’s receiving corps in the offseason. Neither JuJu Smith-Schuster nor Marquez Valdes-Scantling is sure to be back, and I’m expecting both Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore will play larger roles.
Ian Allan: Super Bowl notebook
Thoughts on a few players after Sunday’s Super Bowl:
Kansas City offense banged up heading into Super Bowl
Kansas City quarterback PATRICK MAHOMES was limping badly by the end of Sunday’s AFC Championship game and will likely use the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl for rest… More and recovery. The same can be said for tight end TRAVIS KELCE, who played through remnants of back spasms that left him limited on Sunday. A trio of wideouts will also benefit from the additional recovery time, including KADARIUS TONEY (ankle), JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER (knee), and MECOLE HARDMAN (pelvis). All three watched the dramatic conclusion of Sunday’s game from the sideline. Less
Factoid: Kansas City
Patrick Mahomes threw 41 touchdowns in the regular season, and he did it without any of the wide receivers on his team catching more than 4 touchdowns. Kansas City doesn’t use that position much inside the red zone.
More commonly, Kansas City has featured Travis Kelce and Jerick McKinnon around the goal line. Kelce has caught 12 touchdowns (plus 2 more in the playoffs), while McKinnon has caught 9.
Kansas City WR Toney expected to play vs. Texans
Kansas City wide receiver KADARIUS TONEY has been dealing with a hamstring issue but he is reportedly expected to play today against the Houston Texans. Toney has not played since Week #11 due to the injury but he appears set to return.
Mahomes throws 4 touchdowns vs. Jaguars
Kansas City quarterback PATRICK MAHOMES led the way in Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, throwing 4 touchdown passes on behalf of his team and his fantasy owners. Mahomes threw each… More of his touchdowns to four different receivers, spreading the ball around against the Jaguars. Newcomer KADARIUS TONEY looks like he is getting acclimated to the offense, but fellow wide receiver JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER left the game early on a hard hit that landed him in the concussion protocol. Less
Giants WR Golladay expected to return vs. Texans
New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said on Tuesday that veteran wide receiver KENNY GOLLADAY is likely to return for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans. Golladay has missed the… More last four games with a sprained MCL. He returned to a limited practice session on Tuesday and could provide the Giants with a solid weapon despite his lackluster Giants tenure so far. Shortly after the Giants shipped fellow wide receiver KADARIUS TONEY off to Kansas City, Golladay expressed a desire to not only remain in New York, but to come back strong and help the Giants reach the playoffs.
