| Damien Williams, Tyreek Hill injured on MNF|
Chiefs dealing with injuries to offensive starters, bye week will help

|After losing wide receiver Tyreek Hill to a hamstring injury earlier in the game, the Chiefs have now lost running back Damien Williams to a rib injury and safety Jordan Lucas to a shoulder injury. The players were listed as questionable to return but didn't make it back in the game. (Chiefs Wire)|
FFToday's Take: Wow. Williams started for the Chiefs but had just four carries for 7 yards and one catch for 6 yards on one target before leaving right before halftime. LeSean McCoy had a TD run and he and Darrel Williams while Damien is out. Luckily, they'll have a bye week now to rest up. McCoy is worth a speculative add in leagues where he's been dropped.

Listed as questionable

|RB Damien Williams missed the last two practices of the week for personal reasons but will play on Monday night against the Chargers. Williams is listed as questionable to play on Monday night on the week's final injury report, so there is some doubt about his availability. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We should get word at some point tomorrow if Williams makes the trip with the team to Mexico. Williams owners should have plan B in place in case he's not on the plane. If he sits, LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams would likely split time Monday night against the Chargers.

|Tyreek Hill will not play for the Chiefs in Sunday night's game against the Colts. He will be listed as out on the final injury report of the week. "He got out and mixed it up and worked in some team periods,'' coach Andy Reid said of Hill's practice week. "He did a nice job but he's just not ready to go yet . . . He wants to play but at the same time it's not your normal injury that you have. We've just got to make sure that he's right and you don't have any setbacks.'' (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Tyreek Hill will sit out another week with his chest injury but it's possible he could return in Week 6. The Chiefs will head into the Colts game with all three of Damien Williams, LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams available making it difficult for fantasy owners to trust any of them in Week 5 lineups.

WR limited, RB practicing in full

FFToday's Take: It seems unlikely Hill will play this week after being out since Week 1, but it's a good sign for his Week 6 prospects. The real intrigue is in the backfield. Williams began the season as the starter but did virtually nothing on the ground before getting hurt. LeSean McCoy's role is the most secure, but he has registered no more than 11 carries in a game. Darrel Williams has played too well for HC Andy Reid to bench. Owners are advised to sit tight until this thing sorts itself out.

Trending towards missing Week 4

|Damien Williams will again not practice for the Chiefs today. Looking like a second straight week off for him. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Williams missed Week 3 with a knee injury and appears to be headed for a similar fate in Week 4. That would leave the running back duties to LeSean McCoy (ankle) and Darrel Williams with Williams being the healthiest of the two. Both will be Flex considerations against the Lions.
