    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: May be squeezed out

    Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid wants Charcandrick West's teammate Kareem Hunt to take on a larger role in the passing game, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.With Spencer Ware (knee) expected back in the fold after missing the entire 2017 season, West appears to be the odd man out in the Kansas City backfield. Hunt proved more than capable of handling passing downs, an area that was West's domain for much of 2017, when he caught 27 passes and only took 18 carries. His salary is small enough that the Chiefs could justify retaining all three backs, but it also wouldn't come as a major surprise if West were to be released at some point this offseason. Reid seems to be hinting at Hunt taking on passing downs while ceding a portion of the early downs to Ware.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Snags two passes in wild-card loss

    Charcandrick West caught two passes for one yard during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Titans. He finished the 2017 regular season with 27 catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns and 18 carries for 72 yards and two scores.West was expected to take the lead role for the Kansas City Chiefs during Week 17 against the Broncos with Kareem Hunt resting, but an illness forced West to miss the contest. He provided minimal impact during the team's lone postseason game, but once again served in his role as a supplemental pass catcher behind Hunt. West remains under contract through 2018, though it remains to be seen how frequently he'll be utilized next season with Spencer Ware (knee) likely returning to the fold.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Full practice Tuesday

    Charcandrick West (illness) practiced in full Tuesday, BJ Kissel of the Kansas City Chiefs' official sitel reports.West came down with an illness at an inopportune time, sitting out Week 17 in a game Kareem Hunt was supposed to receive a day off. Instead, Akeem Hunt got the call after the other Hunt's early TD run, only to suffer an ankle injury that forced his placement on IR on Tuesday. With West healthy again, he'll act as the direct backup to Kareem Hunt in Saturday's wild-card game against the Titans, but the recently re-signed C.J. Spiller will also be around as a depth RB option.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Won't play Week 17

    Charcandrick West (illness) was downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Kansas City Chiefs' official site reports.West missed practice Thursday and Friday with the undisclosed illness and was originally listed as questionable. The Chiefs were expected to rest rookie workhorse Kareem Hunt with the team locked in to the AFC's No. 4 playoff seed, but now the only other available running back on the roster is Akeem Hunt. The latter Hunt appears primed for a heavy workload against the Broncos on Sunday, but the Chiefs could also look to make a last-minute roster addition to add some depth to the position.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Listed as questionable for Week 17

    Charcandrick West (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after missing practice Thursday and Friday.Akeem Hunt (shoulder) is also listed as questionable, though we expect both backs to suit up this weekend. With the Kansas City Chiefs entrenched as the AFC's No. 4 playoff seed, starting running back Kareem Hunt is a candidate to be rested in Week 17, per ESPN's Adam Teicher. As a result, West and Akeem Hunt appear on track to see expanded roles this weekend. Of the two, West (assuming he plays) profiles as the safer fantasy streaming option in Week 17.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Sits out practice Thursday

    Charcandrick West was a non-participant at the Kansas City Chiefs' practice Thursday due to an undisclosed illness, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.West remains the Chiefs' No. 2 running back behind workhorse Kareem Hunt heading into Week 17, but the team already being locked into the No. 4 playoff spot could lead to a more varied usage of running backs this week. Kansas City has already opted to rest starting quarterback Alex Smith in favor of rookie Patrick Mahomes and it would similarly make sense for them to limit Hunt's workload in a game that won't affect the standings, although no official announcement has yet been made. West's participation at Friday's practice should provide a better indication of his potential availability for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Snags three passes in Week 16

    Charcandrick West caught three passes on four targets for 28 yards Sunday against the Dolphins.As per usual, Kareem Hunt took on a workhorse role for the Kansas City Chiefs, carrying the ball 29 times. West didn't receive a tote Sunday, but he added to his contributions in the receiving game out of the backfield. He should continue in that supplemental role in the stretch run and the playoffs, but remains unlikely to be a factor for fantasy purposes.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Totals six yards

    Charcandrick West rushed for six yards on five carries during Saturday's 30-13 win over the Chargers.West scored his first touchdown since Week 1 during Week 14 but started another scoreless streak Sunday. The fourth-year back has been a bit of an enigma in recent weeks. It appeared, briefly, that he might find a role as a pass catcher out of the backfield with 12 receptions from Weeks 10 to 13. However, he hasn't caught another pass since and seems unlikely to be much of a factor down the stretch with rookie Kareem Hunt righting the ship after a midseason slide. Hunt has 344 yards over the past two games and seems likely to be Kansas City's focal point as it pushes for the playoffs.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Rumbles into end zone in return

    Charcandrick West (personal) ran three times for 25 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 26-15 win over the Raiders.West was lightly utilized behind Kareem Hunt, but he made the most of his workload by scoring on a nice 13-yard run. After dealing with a death in the family, he appears to be back and ready to go the rest of the way. He should give Hunt the occasional breather again next Sunday against the Chargers.

    Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Returns to team

    Charcandrick West (personal) rejoined the Kansas City Chiefs for practice Thursday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.West, who missed Sunday's loss to the Jets while tending to the personal matter, looks like he'll be good to go Week 14 against the Raiders after he was excluded from the Chiefs' injury report. While West was sidelined last weekend, Akeem Hunt served as the primary understudy to starting running back Kareem Hunt, logging one carry for two yards and one catch for 20 yards.
