Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Turnover machine in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu cranked out 62 tackles (48 solo) and a career-high six interceptions during the 2020 regular season.

Mathieu has been nothing short of spectacular since joining the Chiefs prior to the 2019 season, compiling a combined 10 interceptions and 132 tackles (111 solo). He failed to record a sack for the first time since 2014, but Mathieu made up for it with his ball-hawking ways and remains one of the elite safeties in the NFL. He's owed significant money leading up to 2021 but has given Kansas City little reason to cut ties with his performance since joining the club.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Adam Teicher of reports.

It's a star-studded list of inactives Sunday, with Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill (hamstring), Sammy Watkins (calf) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) not playing. Mathieu will receive a two-week break with the Chiefs having already clinched a first-round bye for the playoffs.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Officially active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu (hip) is active for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

After being limited during Friday's practice session, Mathieu has been cleared to play against the rising AFC foe. The veteran safety should handle his typical every-snap workload that has produced 57 tackles, seven pass breakups and five interceptions through 12 games.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Expected to suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu (hip) is expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mathieu was added to Kansas City's Week 14 injury report Friday after being limited by a hip issue. The versatile safety has made his mark as an IDP this season by logging 57 tackles and five picks in 12 games to date.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Questionable with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Mathieu's playmaking ability will be sorely missed if he sits, as he has compiled five interceptions this season, including three in the last two games. If Mathieu can't go, the standout safety would likely be replaced by Juan Thornhill.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Leading tackler in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu paved the way with a team-best eight tackles (six solo) Thursday versus the Texans.

Mathieu is no stranger to helping out in the run game, posting at least 75 tackles in each of his last three seasons. While his opening night was fairly quiet otherwise, the Honey Badger does enough on a weekly basis to warrant IDP consideration.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Turns in another impressive season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu totaled 75 tackles (63 solo), four interceptions and two sacks across 16 regular-season contests in 2019.

Mathieu fell 14 tackles shy of matching the career-high total he recorded in both 2014 and 2018, but he doubled up his interception total from the previous campaign. The safety has two years remaining on the contract he signed with the Chiefs last March, so he should retain his spot at the back end of the Kansas City defense next season.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Pads tackle total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu notched six tackles (all solo) and a pass defensed Sunday versus the Bears.

Mathieu has notched at least five tackles in each of the last three weeks, leaving him on the IDP radar in some leagues at a defensive back slot. The seventh-year safety would need 14 tackles next week to reach his season total from last year, but he has already surpassed the interceptions mark and is just one off his sack total.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Picks up second sack of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu recorded five tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's tilt versus the Broncos.

Mathieu has hit a fantasy stride in recent weeks, notching six tackles against the Patriots the week prior and an interception in each of the two weeks before that. Chicago typically tries to get tight ends and running backs involved in the passing game, so Mathieu could have another solid tackle day ahead in Week 16.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Notches second INT of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheu recorded an interception, two passes defensed and eight tackles (four solo) in Monday's game against the Chargers.

Mathieu fell just two tackles shy of his season-high 10 recorded during Week 6 versus the Texans. Mathieu has already matched the two interceptions he has posted in each of the last two seasons, but he's on pace to fall short of the career-high 89 tackles he recorded last year in Houston.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu made 10 tackles (all solo) in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Texans.

It's not often that a safety leads his team in tackles for the game, but with the Texans rushing the ball 41 times, it opened the door for Mathieu to rack up tackles. The 27-year-old continues to be a mainstay in the secondary, as he was the only defensive player to play every snap in the game. He and the Chiefs will face a quick turnaround in Denver on Thursday night.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Notches first INT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu recorded four tackles (all solo), one interception and one pass defended during Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Mathieu managed to pick off Jacoby Brissett during Sunday's loss, but he otherwise had a relatively quiet day. The 27-year-old safety is locked in for his usual starting role in Kansas City's secondary versus the Texans in Week 6.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Tallies first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu had six tackles (five solo) and one sack in Sunday's 34-30 win over the Lions.

Mathieu had his most productive game of the season with his first sack, and the six tackles also represents his highest total of the young season. The 27-year-old has 15 tackles (10 solo) and three passes defensed through four games.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu (shoulder) was listed as a full participant for Wednesday's practice.

Mathieu had been dealing with a shoulder injury he sustained during the Chiefs' second preseason game, but appears fully healthy. Barring a setback, the fact that he was listed as a full participant all but guarantees his availability for Week 1 against Jacksonville.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu (shouler) was a partial-participant at Tuesday's practice, Pete Sweeney of reports.

Mathieu hurt his shoulder in the Chiefs' second preseason game, but the issue was not considered serious. It looks like the Chiefs are going to ease him back into the swing of things at practice in order to ensure he does not aggravate the injury. The 27-year-old is entering his seventh season and first with the Chiefs. He is expected to start at strong safety.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Injury not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Andy Reid said Sunday that Mathieu (shoulder) likely would've stayed in the game if it was during the regular season, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Mathieu suffered the injury during Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers, but Reid confirmed the team didn't want to risk the corner's health in a preseason game. It's unclear how long the LSU product will be sidleined, but he should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. As long as Mathieu is sidelined, Jordan Lucas will likely see an increase in snaps.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: Exits with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Steelers after suffering a shoulder injury.

Mathieu injured his shoulder early on in Saturday's game. The team has said the injury isn't serious but they likely won't risk Mathieu's health in a preseason tilt. Jordan Lucas will figure to see some extra snaps with Mathieu sidelined.

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu: New deal made official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu officially signed a three-year, $42 million contract with the Chiefs on Thursday.

Mathieu projects to be a major upgrade for Kansas City's secondary, which finished among the worst pass defenses in the league last season and allowed 273.4 yards per game. The 26-year-old is coming off a 2018 prove-it campaign with the Texans, in which he matched his career-high in tackles (89) while notching three sacks, two interceptions and one recovered fumble.

Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Lands in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs are closing in on a deal to sign Mathieu, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

The terms of the contract aren't known, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that it's in the range of three years and $42 million. Mathieu will shore up what was among the worst defenses against the pass (273.4 yards per game) in 2018, which resulted in the 24th-ranked scoring defense (26.3 points per game). After inking a prove-it deal with the Texans last offseason, he matched his career-high in tackles (89), accrued three sacks and picked off two passes across 16 games. Expect Mathieu to slot in as Kansas City's new starting free safety.

Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Records eight tackles Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathieu had eight solo tackles in Saturday's 21-7 loss to the Colts.

Mathieu recorded a career-high tying 89 tackles during the regular season, his first year with the Texans, and the 26-year-old safety enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. He told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle that he'd like to return, but he'll have options on the open market and will be expensive.
