Despite the Chiefs throwing 45 times on Sunday, Kelce was held in check, producing his leanest fantasy output of the season. He was needed a big more as a blocker in this one, as Cincinnati generated consistent pressure on Alex Smith, but his seven targets indicate that he remains a big part of the offense. Kelce has a home matchup with a Bears defense that has allowed an average of just 35 receiving yards per game to tight ends this season.
Flowers (concussion) was a full participant at practice on Friday.
It certainly seems like Flowers will be available for Monday's game against the Steelers considering the veteran cornerback was a full participant at practice in back-to-back games. His status will likely be decided in the coming days, but for now all signs appear to be pointing towards Flowers starting his fourth game of the year.
In advance of Week 3, Verrett tended to a foot injury. While he took the field last week, he left early with only one tackle to his credit. His status as one of the Chargers' starting cornerbacks has translated to six tackles (four solo) on the season.
