Kelce will play Sunday, as expected. He had been limited this week in practice but never actually at risk of not playing Sunday.
Kittle practiced fully Thursday, removing any doubt about his availability for Sunday. The elite TE will fill his normal role as a key piece of the 49ers’ offense.
Allison was limited Thursday after sitting out Wednesday, while Lazard was limited for the second straight day. They both appear likely to play. Grant practiced fully after sitting out Wednesday for a personal reason, and he will be available Sunday.
Hollister was limited Thursday after practicing fully Wednesday, putting his status in question. Humphries was limited once again, appearing to be on track to return.
Kittle did not practice Wednesday, although he was reportedly walking in the locker room without a limp. It seems highly unlikely this injury keeps him out Sunday, but he is worth monitoring the rest of the week.
Humphries took a step towards returning to the field, getting a limited practice in Wednesday. He has not played since Week 13. Hollister should be healthy enough to play this week, practicing fully Wednesday.
Kelce was limited in practice Wednesday. He is not at risk of missing Sunday’s game, and he will be an elite option as usual.
Lazard was limited Wednesday but is still on track to play this week. Allison and Grant will both need to be monitored. Neither are likely to be out this week, but illnesses and personal issues can sometimes linger longer than expected.
McCoy and Moore will not practice Wednesday with undisclosed illnesses. Both have time to get healthy, as the Chiefs do not play until Sunday.
Mostert was bothered by a calf cramp during the 49ers’ previous game. However, there aren’t expected to be any lingering effects, and Mostert should be a full participant this week.
Ansah being out is a blow to the Seahawks’ pass rush, which was a point of weakness defensively for much of the 2019 regular season. Aaron Rodgers will benefit from potentially more time in the pocket when he drops back to pass with Ansah sidelined.
The Packers will have one of their best offensive lineman against the Seahawks this afternoon. Bulaga popped up on the injury report later in the week, but will push through his illness. His presence on the field is a boost for the running game as well as pass protection against Jadeveon Clowney and the Seahawks’ front seven.
Kelce was limited in practice this week, but his availability for today’s game was never in serious doubt. While he should be chalk, Kelce and George Kittle, who completely busted yesterday, are projected as the highest-owned and highest-projected tight ends on this weekend’s four-game slate.
Kelce could be in for a big game today against a Texans defense that ranked 12th in fantasy points allowed to tight ends and was just 26th in DVOA vs. the pass in 2019. The Chiefs have the highest ITT on the slate at over 30 points, so Kelce could benefit from some fireworks if this game shoots out.
Fells, who was questionable with a hip injury, is active against the Chiefs. The Texans will be limited at tight end with Jordan Akins sidelined. Fells logged a season-high 96% of the snaps last week with Akins out of the lineup, and we should expect similar playing time for him on Sunday. Fells is going under the radar because of the strong tight end options this weekend and makes for a nice pivot off of the George Kittles and Travis Kelces of the world.
Stills was listed as questionable on the injury report but his presence for today’s playoff game was never in serious doubt. With Will Fuller back in the lineup and Keke Coutee active, Stills will likely be the third option in the passing game. His ownership will plummet with the potentially slate-breaking Fuller on the field, however, Fuller is very injury-prone and has reaggravated injuries several times this season mid-game. Stills is an intriguing tournament play because of Fuller’s questionable health and a nice pivot off of him. Stills has actually had his best games in 2019 with Fuller in the lineup and hasn’t been able to take advantage when Fuller has been out, but nonetheless Stills is a speedy deep-threat who can pay off his salary when given opportunity.
