Fantasy implications of Chiefs-Titans injury report

We take a look at the Chiefs-Texans final injury report and break down the fantasy football implications.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans square off on Sunday afternoon for a chance to go to Super Bowl LIV to face either the 49ers or Packers. Both teams come into this game relatively healthy, but there are a few question marks coming into their matchup.

Kansas City Chiefs

Travis Kelce

Kelce isn’t listed on the final injury report, so there is no question he will play, but he was limited in practice all week and his knee likely isn’t at 100 percent. But, coach Andy Reid says Kelce is feeling better than he did before the Divisional round when he scored three touchdowns. He will take on a Titans pass defense that ranks 25th in DraftKings fantasy points allowed to tight ends and put up 75 yards and a score against them the last time the played.

Chris Jones

Defensive lineman Jones is a game-time decision after getting limited work in on Friday. He likely wouldn’t play every down with his calf injury but he could make things tougher on Ryan Tannehill as a pass rusher. He’s better getting to the quarterback than he is stopping the run, so he won’t be a huge upgrade against Derrick Henry. The only thing that will stop Henry is the Chiefs offense.

Tennessee Titans

Adam Humphries

Humphries hasn’t played since Week 13 but he got limited practices in all week and coach Mike Vrabel is hopeful that he’ll play this week. His skill set underneath might not give him much fantasy value but his presence would be a slight upgrade for the passing offense.

Jack Conklin

The Titans tackle injured his shoulder in practice and was limited Thursday and Friday. With a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, he will most-likely play, but there’s always a chance he could aggravate the injury. The Titans need Conklin if they are going to keep up their game-plan of running the ball and controlling the clock. His loss wouldn’t mean a total collapse of the line, but it would hurt the offense as a whole.

Adoree’ Jackson

Jackson is expected to play after getting limited practices in all week with a foot injury but is expected to play. He will be needed, but his presence wasn’t a big deterrent in Week 10 against this passing offense.
