Friday PM update: Toney has been ruled out against the Bengals as expected.

Friday update: Toney was once again missing from practice on Friday, per Herbie Teope. It would be a big surprise if he wasn’t ruled out on the final injury report.

Thursday update: Toney won’t practice again on Thursday, per Nate Taylor. It looks like he will likely be out again this week. JuJu Smith-Schuster should be more involved this week, so will probably take up the No. 1 wide receiver role, while Travis Kelce remains the No. 1 target.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ newest wide receiver, Kadarius Toney, did not practice on Wednesday ahead of the Chiefs’ matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Toney joined the Chiefs in early November and appeared in three games before missing Kansas City’s Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy football implications for Week 13

Toney has made a significant impact in just one game for the Chiefs this season, so the fantasy implications shouldn’t be too widespread. JuJu Smith-Schuster is also questionable, but the Chiefs have such a deep wide receiving group that Patrick Mahomes won’t be short on options.

Toney was a popular fantasy pick after his 90-yard, one-touchdown performance against Jacksonville, but managers should handle him carefully. This hamstring issue has been plaguing him all season.

With Toney out and Smith-Schuster questionable, we can expect Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and TE Travis Kelce to see the majority of targets on Sunday.
