Fantasy Advice

Kadarius Toney is going to be one or the most polarizing players in fantasy football drafts this season. Super talented, never healthy, is his M.O. The Chiefs flirted with DeAndre Hopkins but he did not sign there. Meanwhile, a \"major focus\" of Chiefs training camp is to strengthen the connection between Patrick Mahomes and Toney. While I'm not tripping over myself to acquire Toney in drafts, at a relatively cheap cost, he's worth the risk.

  • Kadarius Toney Inactive For Super Bowl LVIII

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (coach's decision) is officially a healthy scratch for Sunday's Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. An apparent rift has grown between Toney and the team this playoffs, with the receiver accusing the Chiefs of misconstruing his injury status. Head coach Andy Reid indicated Toney would likely be inactive for the big game, and now it's official. He finishes the year having caught 27 of 39 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown through 13 regular-season games. He also added 31 rushing yards and 58 punt return yards. Rashee Rice, Travis Kelce, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are expected to operate as Patrick Mahomes' top options in the passing game versus the Niners.

  • Kadarius Toney Not Expected To Play In Super Bowl

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney is not expected to play in Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, according to a league source. Toney had a big game in last year's Super Bowl win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but he struggled with injuries and inconsistent play in 2023 and hasn't played in a game since Week 15. In that Week 15 game against the New England Patriots, Toney deflected a pass to a defender for an interception for the second time this year. He made headlines earlier in the playoffs when he said he was "not hurt" after the win over the Ravens in the AFC Championship game. The 25-year-old was expected to have a bigger role in his first full year in KC, but instead he finished with just 27 receptions (38 targets) for 169 yards and one touchdown during the regular season.

  • Chiefs Non-Committal About Kadarius Toney's Status

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney was taken off the injury report last week. Head coach Andy Reid said that Toney has been practicing but was non-committal about whether the receiver would play in the Super Bowl this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. "We'll see, I don't know. He's been practicing. We'll just see whether he's up or not," Reid said. With Toney and Skyy Moore (knee) not having played since Week 15, the Chiefs have relied heavily on tight end Travis Kelce, rookie receiver Rashee Rice and running back Isiah Pacheco and that should continue this weekend. Even if Toney is active for the Chiefs in the Super Bowl, fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to be on the field for many offensive snaps.

  • Kadarius Toney Removed From Injury Report

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (personal) practiced in full for the second straight day on Thursday and was officially removed from the team's injury report leading up to the Super Bowl next weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. Toney has not played at all since Week 15 and has recently been listed on the injury report with ankle and hip injuries before saying that he hasn't been injured and the Chiefs have mismanaged their injury report. The 25-year-old former first-rounder was also away from the team last weekend for the birth of his child. Toney is getting healthy with one game left in the Chiefs' season, but even if he's active in the Super Bowl, Toney won't be expected to be a big part of the team's offensive game plan.

  • Kadarius Toney Listed As Full Practice Participant

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (personal) was listed as a full participant for the team's walkthrough practice on Wednesday. Toney hasn't played since Week 15 due to ankle and hip injuries, but he voiced frustration after the AFC Championship win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday that he hasn't been injured. The 25-year-old also was away from the team last week for the birth of his child. Toney enters this week without any injuries attached to his name, so he should be just fine to take part in the Super Bowl on Feb. 11 against the San Francisco 49ers. In any event, even if Toney is active for the Super Bowl, it's unlikely that he'll have much of a role in the Chiefs' offense. After all, the former first-rounder only had 27 catches during the regular season for 169 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets.

  • Kadarius Toney To Practice Leading Up To Super Bowl

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip), who has missed the team's last six games, will practice in the next two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. Toney was ruled out of Sunday's AFC Championship win over the Baltimore Ravens and apparently posted an audio recording on social media on Sunday morning, claiming that he's "not hurt" and that the Chiefs have mismanaged their injury designations. The former first-rounder practiced in full last Wednesday before being limited on Thursday and Friday but was inactive on Sunday, the day of his daughter's birth. Toney had a glaring drop in Week 15 and has played in just one game since lining up offsides on the memorable play that took a potential game-winning touchdown away from KC in their Week 14 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

  • Kadarius Toney Says He's Not Hurt

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip, personal) wasn't active for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. However, the wideout took to Instagram Live on Sunday, accusing the organization of lying about his injury. "I'm not hurt," Toney said during the video. "None of that. It goes from hip to ankle to this to that." The 2021 No. 20 overall pick had plenty of promise entering the league. But he hasn't lived up to expectations, recently finishing the 2023-24 campaign with 27 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. Toney also made several critical on-the-field errors, including a costly offsides penalty in Week 14 that potentially resulted in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. At any rate, Toney likely won't be active for the Super Bowl, assuming the Chiefs advance. It's also possible he's already played his final game in Kansas City. Now the question remains if any team will want him on the roster come next season.

  • Chiefs Downgrade Kadarius Toney To Out

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    The Kansas City Chiefs have downgraded wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip, personal) from questionable to out for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Baltimore Ravens. Toney was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, but the 25-year-old former first-rounder will miss his sixth straight game because of his hip injury. With Toney out yet again, it will mean that Justin Watson and Mecole Hardman Jr. will compete for targets behind rookie wideout Rashee Rice and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The oft-injured Toney just hasn't been able to stay on the field consistently in his NFL career and disappointed with only 27 receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets over 13 regular-season games in 2023 in his first full season with the Chiefs.

  • Kadarius Toney Questionable To Face Ravens

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) is officially listed as questionable to suit up this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game. Toney got off to a good start at practice this week when he was able to practice in full on Wednesday, but he was downgraded to limited on Thursday and is in danger of missing his sixth straight game. The oft-injured 24-year-old former first-rounder has not played since the team's Week 15 win over the New England Patriots and will surely be on a snap count if he's cleared to play in Baltimore this weekend. Even if Toney is active against the Ravens, he shouldn't be in consideration for DFS lineups. Toney had just 27 catches on 38 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown in 13 regular-season games for Kansas City in 2023.

  • Kadarius Toney Downgraded To Limited On Thursday

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) was a limited participant for Thursday's practice after putting in a full practice on Wednesday. The 2021 first-round pick has not played since Week 16 due to a hip injury, and it remains to be seen if he will return for the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. Toney caught just 27 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown and rushed 11 times for 31 yards in 13 regular season games, so he is not a strong DFS consideration if he suits up on Sunday. Rashee Rice has established himself as the clear No. 2 target behind Travis Kelce in Kansas City's offense.

  • Rashee Rice, Kadarius Toney Practicing In Full

    Headshot for Rashee Rice

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers Rashee Rice (hamstring), Kadarius Toney (hip) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (oblique) all put in full practices on Wednesday as the team began preparing for the AFC Championship this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. The Chiefs have a challenge on their hands to knock off the top seed in the AFC on the road if they want to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Baltimore's defense isn't going to make it easy on a KC offense that was down a bit in 2023, however, their pass defense took a dip late in the regular season. Rice, who was held to just four catches for 47 yards in the Divisional Round win over Buffalo, will look to bounce back. The 23-year-old rookie is really the only Chiefs pass-catcher not named Travis Kelce that is worth trusting in DFS lineups the rest of the postseason. Toney is hoping to return for the first time since Week 15.

  • Kadarius Toney Downgraded To Out For Divisional Round

    Headshot for Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) was listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills on Friday's final injury report, but he was downgraded to out on Saturday. Toney was limited in practice all week but will now miss his fifth straight game. If the Chiefs advance to the AFC Championship next weekend, it remains to be seen if Toney will be available. If he is, he won't really be on the fantasy radar for DFS gamers, as the former first-rounder had just 27 catches on 38 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown in 13 games in his first full season for KC in 2023. With Toney out again this weekend against Buffalo, Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman Jr. will see more opportunities behind rookie Rashee Rice against a beat up Bills secondary.

  • Kadarius Toney, Justyn Ross Questionable For Divisional Round

    Headshot for Justyn Ross

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) and Justyn Ross (hamstring) were both limited in practice all week and are questionable to play on Sunday versus the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round of the postseason. Regardless of whether Toney is able to play this weekend, the fact remains that he hasn't played since Week 15 and wasn't on the fantasy radar to begin with before his injuries. The 24-year-old had only 27 receptions (38 targets) for 169 yards and one touchdown through the air in his first full season with the Chiefs. Ross, meanwhile, injured his hamstring in Week 18 and didn't play in last week's wild-card win over the Miami Dolphins. He, too, should be avoided in DFS if he's active, as he had just six catches for 53 yards and no TDs during the regular season.

    Headshot for Justyn Ross

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) and Justyn Ross (hamstring) were both listed as limited for the team's first practice of the week on Wednesday. Toney was limited in practice last week but did not play in the wild-card victory over the Miami Dolphins. The 24-year-old has not been active since Week 15, so even if he's able to return to face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in the Divisional Round, it's likely that he won't see much time on the field as a legitimate offensive threat for the Chiefs. Ross injured his hamstring in the Week 18 regular season finale and was also inactive this past Saturday night. Even more so than Toney, Ross will be off the DFS radar if he's active against Buffalo. The 24-year-old pass-catcher only had six receptions for 53 yards during the regular season.
