Out since Week 9 with groin injury
|Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin will play Thursday against the Raiders, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He has missed the last four games with a groin injury. (SI.com)|
FF Today's Take: While it is good news for the Chiefs, Maclin should be limited at best in freezing temps after a month-long absence. Owners should avoid starting him if at all possible. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill should be the only Kansas City pass-catchers considered worthy of a start in fantasy.
| Chiefs optimistic on Maclin for Thursday -- Mon Dec 5 2:10 pm --|
|Chiefs optimistic that WR Jeremy Maclin, who has missed past 4 games due to groin injury, will return for Thursday vs. Raiders, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Maclin has missed the last four games with a groin injury and practiced on a limited basis last week. With the Chiefs playing Thursday night, we'll get a good indication of his true status by Wednesday.
| Jeremy Maclin downgraded to Out -- Sat Dec 3 10:39 am --|
Limited in practice all week
|Jeremy Maclin won’t play for the fourth straight week, the Chiefs announced Saturday, the day before their game at Atlanta.
Maclin returned to practice this week but was downgraded from questionable to out on the Chiefs’ final injury report. He has been recovering from a groin injury since the Chiefs’ Nov. 6 game vs. Jacksonville. (Kansas City Star)|
FF Today's Take: Maclin was limited in practice this week with a groin injury but will miss this weekend's tilt with the Falcons. The Chiefs play the Raiders on Thursday night next week. With Maclin out, Tyreek Hill becomes a viable WR3 for fantasy owners with WR1 upside in a game the Chiefs are likely to be playing from behind.

Testing out injured groin

FF Today's Take: Maclin will "test things out" according to head coach Andy Reid. Maclin will likely be listed as a limited participant. Maclin has been out of action since very early in Week 9.
| Jeremy Maclin out for Week 10 -- Fri Nov 11 2:00 pm --|
|Receiver Jeremy Maclin won’t play against the Carolina Panthers this weekend, and star linebacker Justin Houston will probably be listed “out” as well, according to Chiefs coach Andy Reid. (Kansas City Star)|
FF Today's Take: Maclin missed practice all week and played very little in Week 9. His absence means increased opportunities for Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Albert Wilson and Chris Conley. Hill is an interesting tournament option in daily contests.

Chiefs RB passes concussion protocol
|Spencer Ware is making progress in his recovery from a concussion. He’s set to practice on Wednesday, which should put him on track to return to the lineup in Carolina this weekend.
Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will not be joining Ware on the practice field. Maclin aggravated a groin injury last Sunday and left the game after playing two snaps. (ProFootballTalk)|
FF Today's Take: Ware is expected to play this week against Carolina and should see the bulk of the work with Charcandrick West filling the backup role. Maclin is a longshot to play, leaving Alex Smith with Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley as his top three weapons.
