Chiefs | Spencer Ware accounts for two TDs

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:25:55 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed for 29 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 23 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ware was held in check on the ground, but his two touchdowns helped his fantasy owners in Week 13. He has been pretty consistent in terms of his rushing yards over the past month but has not rushed for more than 70 yards in any of the last five games. He will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 back for owners.

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 19:19:56 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed 17 times for 69 yards in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two receptions for 16 yards on his only two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ware remains a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 12 in Denver, as the Broncos have been surprisingly giving on the ground this season.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware effective in return

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:49:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed 13 times for 61 yards and added 11 yards on three catches in a Week 10 win against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City was down 17-3 at one point, which kept the offense from really committing to the ground game, despite Ware's per-touch success. He should get on track in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Arrowhead.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware ready to return

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 14:09:35 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) was able to practice in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to play in the Week 10 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Ware will face a Carolina rush defense allowing just 77.5 yards per game on the ground with only five touchdowns and two runs of 20 or more yards allowed. It's a risky move to use Ware this week in an unfavorable matchup while coming back from a head injury.

Chiefs | Full practice for Spencer Ware

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 17:14:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ware looks set to return to the field in Week 10. He should reclaim his lead back role, but he is a RB2 against a tough Carolina run defense.

Chiefs | Full practice for Spencer Ware

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 15:15:48 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ware is ready to take back his starting mantle in the Chiefs' backfield. Unfortunately, he's heading into a stalwart rush defense in the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers have only surrendered four total touchdowns to running backs through eight games and are only yielding 71 rushing yards per game to the position. Ware should be in starting lineups, but temper expectations.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware will be on the field

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 11:36:58 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) will participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Ware is on track to play this week but likely will need to be cleared by an independent doctor before a final decision in made. He probably would receive most of the work at running back if he plays in Week 10 and can be at least a No. 2 running back.

Chiefs | 'Good chance' Spencer Ware plays Week 10

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 09:54:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) has a "good chance" of playing against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10, according to head coach Andy Reid, who quickly admitted Ware still has to pass the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: This really serves as a non-update update outside of Reid's enthusiasm, since it was reported Monday Ware was still in the protocol. If Ware is cleared before Friday, he should be considered the odds-on favorite to start. Otherwise, Charcandrick West should get the nod and be a low-end RB2 option against the Carolina Panthers.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware still in concussion protocol

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 11:52:46 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Players can progress through the final stages of protocol fairly quickly, but Ware owners need to be prepared for another absence in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers for now. There figures to be several updates between now and then, but Charcandrick West would be in line for another start and would make for a midrange RB2 if Ware sits again.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware ruled out

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 11:49:53 -0700

Updating a previous story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Ware did not practice at all this week and is reportedly not anywhere close to passing the concussion protocol. Charcandrick West should come close to monopolizing all the touches in the Kansas City backfield, while newly signed Bishop Sankey will probably only see touches if West gets hurt or the game gets out of hand.

Chiefs | No practice again for Spencer Ware

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 10:55:34 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and appears unlikely to go in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Charcandrick West will be expected to handle the bulk of the workload if Ware does not play as expected, while newly signed Bishop Sankey will probably receive a few token touches. West is a plug-and-play RB1 this weekend.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware remains out

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 10:17:08 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) will not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It is looking like Ware will not be able to play in Week 9, but he still has not been ruled out at this point. Owners probably should have other options ready in case Ware is not able to play. Charcandrick West likely would be the starting running back and can be a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners if Ware is out.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware to miss practice

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 12:41:08 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol and will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 2. He has not been ruled out for Week 9 at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Ware has a chance to play this week. He is a solid starting option when he is healthy, but owners will need other options available in case Ware is ruled out. Charcandrick West would start if Ware is not able to play and would be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware out with concussion

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:28:14 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 8 game and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: Ware has played well during the first half of the season but will not be cleared to play again until he passes his concussion tests. He should be a starting option in all leagues in Week 9 if he is cleared to play. Charcandrick West likely would start if Ware is ruled out and would be a No. 2 running back or a flex option.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware totals 131 yards, TD

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 19:26:47 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware rushed 17 times for 77 yards in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints, and he added two receptions for 54 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Ware continues to get the job done, and is a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats. He should have another good game against a dinged up Indianapolis defense in Week 8.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles not ready for full load

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 12:58:58 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) continues to see increased activity, but he is still not ready to assume the full workload according to head coach Andy Reid. RB Spencer Ware outtouched Charles 26-11 in Week 6 and held a 40-15 edge in snaps. "Is he ready to carry it every down? I don't think that's where we're at right this minute. But he got more carries than he did against Pittsburgh, and his attitude from the get go has been give me the ball, I want to play. The attitude is awesome," Reid said.

Fantasy Tip: Ware is still paying dividends for fantasy owners longer than most expected on draft day. Still, Charles is probably going to take over the lead role sometime in the next couple of weeks, making now a great buy-low opportunity for the 29-year-old back and a good time to see what Ware's trade value is.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware struggling with fumbles

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 22:30:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware has lost a fumble in each of his last three games. His three lost fumbles are the most in the NFL this season.

Fantasy Tip: Ware's explosiveness has been enough for the coaching staff to look the other way for now, but it sounds as though he might be on thin ice if his ball security doesn't improve. The condition of Jamaal Charles, who returned in Week 4, could also be a factor in how lenient the Chiefs are with Ware. Kansas City is on Bye this week, but it's a situation to be aware of for Ware owners.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware totals 83 yards

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 20:26:41 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 20 times for 75 yards in the Week 3 game against the New York Jets and he added one reception for eight yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a great day for Ware, but he was a serviceable RB2 in most fantasy formats. He faces a decent fantasy outlook in Week 4 in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware practices in full

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 13:49:25 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Ware likely will receive another start and will share carries with Charcandrick West in Week 2. Ware can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in a majority of fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware back at practice

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 19:06:08 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ware is expected to play in Week 2, and as he showed in the opener, he can be a valuable fantasy starter until Jamaal Charles is healthy and handling a full workload.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware on track for Week 2

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 10:28:33 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) will be "okay" for the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: It's still worth monitoring Ware's involvement in practice this week, but he appears locked in for another solid fantasy showing. Houston projects as a difficult matchup, but after posting 199 yards from scrimmage on just 11 carries and seven receptions, it's ill-advised to discount Ware's upside.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware sits out practice

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 10:08:17 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, because of a sprained toe.

Fantasy Tip: Ware was a fantasy star in Week 1 with 70 rushing yards on 11 attempts, 129 receiving yards on seven receptions and a rushing score. The bulk of his production also came with Kansas City trailing by a large margin, which defies the gamescript typical of monster performances from running backs. With Jamaal Charles (knee) still in limbo for Week 2, Ware stands to have another solid fantasy showing, as long as he's ready to go.

Chiefs | Ware, West split snaps evenly in Week 1

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 09:31:07 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West each played 34 of the team's 71 snaps in a Week 1 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the equal distribution of snaps, Ware owned a clear 18-9 edge in touches and 199-23 advantage in total yards. While West needs to be owned in most leagues should Ware get injured, it is becoming very clear the Chiefs' brass views the latter as the more dangerous offensive threat. Ware should be considered a RB1 for as long as Jamaal Charles is sidelined.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware expected to start

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 18:50:38 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is likely to start against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1, according to head coach Andy Reid, but Reid said RB Charcandrick West and RB Knile Davis will also be used.

Fantasy Tip: If you plan on gambling on one of Kansas City's backs in Week 1, Ware is your best bet.

Chiefs | Larger role for Spencer Ware?

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:04:16 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware has been seeing a lot of the starter's reps in practice in training camp, and RB Charcandrick West gets some, too, as RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been slow to return to a featured back role after a torn anterior cruciate ligament back in October 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is behind schedule and all indications are that he will not be able to handle the lion's share of the carries like in the past, meaning Ware might be used much more. Ware is worth drafting in the final rounds of all fantasy formats, especially if you draft Charles early on draft day. West is also a decent handcuff if you miss out on Ware.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware scores third preseason TD

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 18:02:28 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware finished with nine carries for 24 yards and a touchdown to go along with four catches for 26 yards in a preseason win over the Chicago Bears on Saturday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Jamaal Charles sitting out yet again, Ware continued to prove he is the handcuff to own in Kansas City despite a less-than-impressive rushing line. The real takeaway is his work in the receiving game, as he has eight catches over the last two preseason contests after posting only six in 11 outings last year. Owners of Charles would be wise to invest a pick in Ware in the early double-digit rounds, while Ware might also provide standalone value as the likely goal-line back to non-Charles owners.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West holds his own

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 15:10:40 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West played behind RB Spencer Ware in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Aug. 13, but flashed on a 25-yard run and finished with 35 yards on four carries.

Fantasy Tip: West doesn't project to have an early-season role with Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware ahead of him on the depth chart, but this performance is just another reminder the Chiefs are as deep at running back as any team in the league. The Abilene Christian product will need some injuries to happen in front of him to be relevant in fantasy, but he has already shown he can produce when given the chance.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware caps first drive with TD

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 14:59:23 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware got the start with RB Jamaal Charles (knee) still on the Physically Unable to Perform list and did not disappoint in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Aug. 13, running for 24 yards on five carries and converting on a 1-yard plunge early in the first quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Ware had the first two drives all to himself before giving way to Charcandrick West, reaffirming the former is in the lead at the moment to be considered Charles' handcuff. The LSU product may also have a bit of standalone value as Kansas City may opt to use him over Charles at the goal line. Ware is one of the better handcuffs available to owners this summer and should be a solid RB4 with significant upside.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware under the weather

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 18:44:31 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (illness) did not practice Saturday, July 30, and head coach Andy Reid said he was sick.

Fantasy Tip: Ware looks like the frontrunner to be Jamaal Charles' primary backup, and if you grab Charles early, you should consider Ware as an insurance policy.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware active in passing game

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:50:32 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware caught lots of passes in OTAs, according to beat writer Terez A. Paylor.

Fantasy Tip: Ware is expected to be the No. 2 back behind Jamaal Charles. Both Ware and Charcandrick West are worth owning given Charles' injury history, but Ware should be higher on your draft board.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware considered the backup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:14:27 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is viewed as the backup running back behind RB Jamaal Charles, according to ESPN.com's Adam Teicher. Teicher did say that Ware and RB Charcandrick West would both play if Charles was injured.

Fantasy Tip: Ware and West proved their worth last season after Charles went down. Their fantasy value is limited as long as Charles is healthy, though. Both Ware and West are low-end RB4 to high-end RB5 considerations in the Chiefs' backfield.

Dolphins | Knile Davis among Dolphins' pursuit

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 11:47:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is a player the Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in. Davis is believed to be on the trade block. The Dolphins also expressed interest in RBs Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, but those talks appeared to go nowhere.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be an RB3 if he landed in a prominent situation like Miami.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware contract details

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:32:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware received a two-year extension worth $3.6 million for 2017 and 2018. The deal can be worth up to $9.6 million based on yards and touchdowns, and he's guaranteed $2.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Ware had 72 attempts for 403 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 with Jamaal Charles (knee) injured for a big chunk of last year. He provides KC with valuable depth in the backfield, but it'll be an uphill battle to come anywhere close to those numbers with Charles expected back healthy in 2016. Ware won't be worth drafting in standard leagues to begin the year.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware extended

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:16:54 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are both signing contract extensions Thursday, March 31, after the two combined for more than 1,000 yards in 2015 after RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was out for the season. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: West and Ware were nice fantasy fill-ins for those that were scrambling to replace Charles early in the year. With Charles expected to return healthy in 2016, though, their roles will be cut back a bit. Perhaps KC will use them both more to preserve Charles, but less frequent touches will knock their fantasy value back down. West could still be an RB4 in deeper leagues, though.

Chiefs | Decision time on Jamaal Charles

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:53:44 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was hurt and then the team went on average 135.9 yards - fifth in the league - in 11 regular season games with RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. He has a $2 million report-to-training camp bonus due in July, and he could be asked to take a pay cut and/or relinquish that bonus to return while earning it back through incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has been a productive back in this league, but he has had multiple injuries to his anterior cruciate ligament and he is getting up there in age. Fantasy owners should be preparing for a steep decline going forward.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware active Saturday

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 12:33:43 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is active against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has been dealing with a high-ankle sprain, so he could be playing in a limited capacity. He's still worth at least a flex start on FantasyScore, though.

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 08:56:06 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) and WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) are questionable for the divisional game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) should be good to go and will be a flex consideration on FantasyScore. Wilson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could be a low-end flyer with Jeremy Maclin (ankle) maligned with a high ankle sprain.

Chiefs | Limited practice for Spencer Ware

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:26:51 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: He did not practice yesterday, so the limited status is a good sign. Ware's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) status should be tracked heading into the weekend. If he is inactive or limited at all then Charcandrick West ($6,400, 12.8%) would make for a nice RB2 on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware has high ankle sprain

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 10:37:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is dealing with a high ankle sprain and missed practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: High ankle sprains are really tough to get over quickly, so it might be a stretch for Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) to play this weekend against the New England Patriots. That would make Charcandrick West ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) a much more acceptable daily pick, especially if he's used more in the passing game if Jeremy Maclin (ankle) is out.

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 10:19:36 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) had a decent 16-67-1 line in the wild-card game. He'll be an RB2 consideration against the New England Patriots on FantasyScore if he's able to go.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware absent Tuesday

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 11:15:03 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) missed practice Tuesday, Jan. 12, with a sprained ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is coming off a nice performance in the wild-card game against the Houston Texans in which he ran for 67 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. It was his second consecutive game of 16 carries, at least 67 yards and one touchdown. He has carved out an important role in the Chiefs' offense and he's worth at least a flex start on FantasyScore.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried the ball 16 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 30-0 win over the Houston Texans in the wild-card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ware led the team in carries and yards, and he picked up where he left off in the regular season finale. Ware looks like Kansas City's lead back at this point, but the matchups won't be easy going forward in the playoffs.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 9.

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 14:30:57 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin) and RB Spencer Ware (rib) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is rather expensive on FantasyScore, but with fewer bodies to choose from is worth paying up for. Ware ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is a sleeper pick worth investigating in your daily leagues. Charcandrick West is much too expensive against a stout Houston Texans defensive front, but Ware could be used strategically in the passing game.

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 15:26:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin) and RB Spencer Ware (ribs) were full participants in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce, Ware and Kansas City's offense as a whole have a tough draw on the road against the Houston Texans this weekend. Houston ranked above averaged defensively against tight ends and running backs this season. Kelce is a better option than Ware, but neither should really spark confidence.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carried 16 times for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) will have a role in the offense this season but it will not be as big as it was earlier in the season. Ware could be a flex option in some leagues, but most owners should be able to find better options.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will receive some touches during the game but will not be the team's top running back. Ware could be a flex option for owners, but owners probably will be able to find better options to use.

Chiefs | Three Chiefs have full practice

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 16:22:52 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin), RB Spencer Ware (ribs) and WR Albert Wilson (shin) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is definitely the safest FantasyScore choice of the three, especially facing one of the worst fantasy defenses against tight ends in the Oakland Raiders. Ware ($3,400, 6.8%) isn't nearly as effective with Charcandrick West healthy, and Albert Wilson ($2,000, 4.0%) hasn't done much all year. Both should be avoided in Week 17.
