Pringle reeled in 12 of his 16 targets for 170 yards and a touchdown during the 2019 season. More than half of Pringle's production came in Week 5 versus the Colts, when he logged a season-high 49 offensive snaps and hauled in six passes for 104 yards and his first and only NFL touchdown to date. He remains under contract through the 2020 season, but Pringle has no money guaranteed, potentially forcing him to lay claim to his roster spot in camp again. He should have a leg up this time around with a full year on the roster under his belt.
Pringle caught his only target for a 14-yard gain during Sunday's 23-16 win over New England. Pringle's reception came on his only offensive snap of the game. The young WR has single-digit or no offensive snaps in five of his last six games and has just two catches for 23 yards during that span. He's a long way from Week 5's six-catch outing and should not be on your fantasy radar -- especially with Patrick Mahomes (hand) dinged up, the rest of the Chiefs' receiving corps healthy and Denver's sixth-ranked pass defense coming to town Sunday.
Pringle caught his only target of Monday's 24-17 win over the Chargers for a nine-yard gain. Monday's reception ended a four-game catchless streak for Pringle, who still has more catches in Week 5 (six) than the rest of the season combined (five). He had just three offensive snaps total in the three games leading into Monday after the Chiefs' receiving corps returned to health, but he managed to reach 11 offensive snaps against the Chargers largely because Tyreek Hill (hamstring) made an early exit. If Hill's injury is still a factor after the team's Week 12 bye, Pringle's role on offense could expand when the Chiefs take on the Raiders' 27th-ranked pass defense.
Pringle recorded two catches on three targets for 24 yards Sunday against the Texans. Pringle's snap count dropped from 78 percent to just 59 percent in Week 6. It's likely the result of Tyreek Hill's (shoulder) return from injury. That role will likely diminish further as Hill's playing time is scaled up and Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is healthy enough to go, moving Pringle out of the fantasy limelight once again.
Pringle caught a 13-yard pass and returned two kicks for 41 total yards during Sunday's 34-30 win over the Lions. Pringle came up clutch Sunday, catching a short pass underneath from Patrick Mahomes during the Chiefs' game-winning drive and taking it 13 yards to the Detroit 3, setting up a Darrel Williams touchdown run two plays later. It was a nice play in a big moment, but the fact that it was his only target should create pause. Tyreek Hill's (shoulder) return in the coming weeks should only reduce Pringle's role in the offense in the near future, though he may stick around on game days as a returner. Next up is a Colts defense that has done well to limit opponents' big plays in the passing game this season
