Report: Kadarius Toney won’t play in Week 14 vs. Broncos

The Chiefs WR has a hamstring injury and may miss this week. We break down the fantasy football impact.

Saturday update: Toney is not expected to play in Week 14 vs. the Broncos, per Jordan Schultz. Toney was being listed as questionable to play heading into Sunday. We’ll wait and see what inactives say but for now, proceed as though Toney isn’t going to go.

If that’s the case, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster will continue to see most of the WR targets. Travis Kelce is the main option and then there are about 4-5 other skill guys behind them that will rotate in. No Toney has the greatest impact on RB Jerick McKinnon, who should be used in the passing game quite a bit.

Friday update: Toney is being listed as questionable to play in Week 14 vs. the Broncos due to a hamstring injury. Toney was injured a few weeks ago against the Chargers and didn’t play last week in the loss to Cincy. If Toney can get back, it doesn’t impact too much. The Chiefs are basically using a Swiss Army approach, employing a ton of different skill position players in various offensive schemes.

Thursday PM update: Toney was officially limited. He looks like he is close to returning, but will likely be questionable to face the Broncos.

Thursday update: Toney was once again at practice on Thursday after getting a limited practice in on Wednesday, per Pete Sweeney. He will likely be limited again on Thursday. We’ll see what Friday holds, as the final injury report should give us a better idea of his status. But, Andy Reid does give a bit more info than other coaches on Fridays, so maybe we’ll hear something from hims as well.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told reporters that wide receiver Kadarius Toney will get in some practice on Wednesday, per Adam Teicher. Toney has missed the last few games with a hamstring injury and missed games while with the Giants earlier this season due to his hamstrings.

The team will likely take it slow with Toney during practice this week to see how he progresses without pushing the injury. That will likely make him questionable at best to play against the Broncos.

Fantasy football implications for Week 13

Toney appeared to be moving his way up into a starting role when he was injured, but with this injury he’s likely back to square one. The Chiefs have been spreading the ball around quite a bit this season, with no one receiver truly taking off as a must-start in fantasy. Toney has the playmaking ability to become a must-start, but not yet.
