Kelce was limited in practice Friday, although his status for the Super Bowl is not in question. The Chiefs are simply being cautious with their elite TE.
Pettis was out Thursday with an undisclosed illness, although his status for the Super Bowl is not at risk. Coleman was out again, and his availability will likely not be clear until late next week. He suffered a dislocated shoulder in the conference championship game.
Kelce will not practice Thursday with an undisclosed illness. With 10 days left until the Super Bowl, Kelce’s status is not in question, and he should play as usual.
The 49ers released an estimated practice report Wednesday, as they did not actually practice. Coleman was the only offensive player on the report, listed as not participating with his dislocated shoulder.
The Chiefs are a healthy team heading into the Super Bowl, with Demarcus Robinson the only player not to practice Wednesday. Robinson is dealing with an illness, making it likely that he will be healthy by Super Bowl Sunday. When the Chiefs are healthy at WR, Robinson has a small but consistent role, playing roughly half the offensive snaps and getting at least two targets in six straight games.
Coleman suffered a dislocated shoulder Sunday, and his status for the Super Bowl is not yet known. The results of an MRI should be available soon.
Grant and Williams have been frequent healthy scratches, but the Packers were hopeful to have Vitale, who was listed as questionable, for today’s game vs. the Niners. The Packers’ secondary tight ends could see more run with Vitale out, such as Jace Sternberger and Robert Tonyan.
With the 49ers top three running backs healthy, Jeff Wilson Jr. is a healthy scratch for the NFC Championship Game.
With Moore out due to illness, Chad Henne will back up Patrick Mahomes today.
McCoy is a healthy scratch for today’s do-or-die game vs. the Titans, as he had been frequently in the second half of the 2019 season. So much for Andy Reid’s coachspeak of saving Shady for the playoffs.
Darwin Thompson will back up Damien WIlliams, who saw a whopping 97% of the snaps last week and will likely be the highest-owned player on the slate. Thompson, a rookie drafted out of the sixth round, will see higher ownership with McCoy out, but shouldn’t be expected to see much of a role today barring a Williams injury. The Titans ranked 10th in DVOA vs. the run during the regular season, but Williams is an amazing play today because of his role, price, and his team’s ITT.
Hollister and Jennings are inactive because Hollister is banged up and Adam Humphries is able to go. Hollister and Jennings being out has little DFS impact.
The biggest DFS news of the day is Adam Humphries’ availability. The slot receiver, who hasn’t played since Week 13 due to an ankle injury, is active today against the Chiefs. This likely pushes Tajae Sharpe back to the WR4 role for the Titans and makes Sharpe an extremely risky play, largely because his snaps should be low since the Titans like to deploy multiple tight ends. Gimino’s ownership projections will probably reflect decreases for Sharpe, Anthony Firkser, and Mycole Pruitt. The Chiefs allowed the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers during the regular season, but every active player is in consideration on a two-game slate.
Jones, a star defensive lineman who missed last week’s game vs. the Texans, is active today and will likely play in a limited fashion for the Chiefs. Jones is an excellent pass rusher for his size and should see work on passing downs if the Titans get behind.
Lazard and Allison practiced fully Friday and do not carry injury designations into Sunday’s game. Both will be available as the Packers take on the 49ers.
Hollister and Humphries are both officially listed as questionable for Sunday. Humphries has not played since Week 13, and it isn’t clear how large his role would be if he returns. He totaled just 6 targets his final three games before getting hurt, down significantly from earlier in the season. Hollister will function mainly as a special teams player.
