Friday PM update: Smith-Schuster was able to practice in full for the second day in a row on Friday. He seems to be past his illness and doesn’t have any sort of designation heading into the weekend.

Thursday update: Smith-Schuster was back at practice Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session entirely with an illness. We don’t know his workload yet but he’s trending in the right direction for a showdown with the Bengals in Week 13.
Week 13 of the NFL season is here. One of the highly anticipated matchups of the week will feature a rematch of the 2022 AFC Championship game. The Kansas City Chiefs will hit the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals. The Chiefs are having a down year and are rotating who is getting highlighted in the offense. They have been dealing with injuries, and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is starting the week off by missing practice due to an illness.

Deon Bush was limited.
Fantasy football implications for Week 13
Smith-Schuster is playing on a one-year deal and looking to prove himself. He is the team’s leading wide receiver and second overall to only star tight end Travis Kelce. Smith-Schuster has played in 10 games and has 49 receptions on 67 targets for 653 yards and two touchdowns. While his last two games have been down performances, Smith-Schuster tends to get a decent target share in the offense, making him an interesting flex play if he is active. If Smith-Schuster misses another game, it would be Kadarius Toney that sees an uptick in the passing game.
