What is My FF Today ?

News From The Past 90 Days
Depth Chart
Injury Spencer Ware active, likely to be limited     -- Sun Dec 20 11:15 am --

Rib injury
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that while Chiefs running back Spencer Ware is active, the team only wants to use him in case of an emergency. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: This means Charcandrick should receive the bulk of the carries today against Baltimore. He's now an RB1 in a game the Chiefs are favored by 6.5 with a projected team total of 24 points.
Injury Spencer Ware's role remains uncertain     -- Sun Dec 20 7:30 am --

Dealing with separated cartilage in ribs

FF Today's Take: The concern here is how much does Ware cut into Charcandrick West's workload. This could be a situation where Ware is only used in case of an emergency or in a support role with West receiving the majority of touches. However, we can't be certain. For now, West should be considered an RB2.
Ware and West to share carries in Week 13?     -- Thu Dec 3 1:00 pm --

Chiefs may use RBBC against Raiders
Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware will form a committee at running back when the Chiefs visit Oakland on Sunday. “It goes without saying, it’s still a running back by committee,” Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said Thursday. “I think you have to use them both. Here’s two young running backs that are playing a lot and we’re getting to that time of the season where bodies are really getting sore and banged up.” (KC Star)

FF Today's Take: Not exactly the news fantasy owners want to hear. West is due back from a hamstring injury and is set to share time with Ware who got the start last week. Andy Reid typically likes to dump a good portion of the workload on one running back but with both backs performing well in recent weeks, Ware may see more short-yardage and goal line opportunities. Both RBs have deflated value heading into Week 13.
Injury Travis Kelce active, Charcandrick West out     -- Sun Nov 29 11:30 am --

Ankle injury for Kelce in

FF Today's Take: With West out, Spencer Ware will get the start and is a viable RB2. TE Travis Kelce (ankle) is active.
Injury Spencer Ware to start, West pushing to play     -- Sun Nov 29 9:15 am --

West, long-shot to play
On KCChiefs RBs: Spencer Ware will start, RB Knile Davis will be active. It's a long-shot for Charcandrick West to play, but he's pushing. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: West missed practice all week and it's likely he will be made inactive this morning but he's not officially been declared out as of yet. Ware is a volume-based play in a mediocre matchup against the Bills. This game figure to be low-scoring, so consider Ware an RB2 if/when West is made inactive.
Injury Charcandrick West misses practice Thursday     -- Thu Nov 26 8:00 pm --

Reid optimistic both could play Sunday
Running back Charcandrick West and wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas remained on the sidelines during Chiefs practice on Thursday. West injured his calf and Thomas suffered concussionlike symptoms in the Chiefs’ victory at San Diego last Sunday. On Wednesday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he was optimistic both could play this Sunday against Buffalo at Arrowhead Stadium. (Kansas City Star)

FF Today's Take: It's encouraging that Reid feels optimistic but it would be nice to see the Chiefs running back get some practice time in Friday. If West is unable to play this week, Spencer Ware would likely draw the start against the Bills with Knile Davis filling a backup role.
