Dontari Poe DL KC 9 Hrs
Poe recorded 1.5 sacks, a pass deflection and four tackle (three solo) against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Poe had his best game of the season so far, getting his first sacks of the season. He had just 4.5 all of last season and zero the season before so it's unlikely he will have totals like this on a consistent basis, but it's possible the third season will be his best.
Frankie Hammond WR KC 10 Hrs
Hammond didn't record a reception against the Dolphins on Sunday, taking the field for just four offensive snaps.
Hammond's biggest role currently is as the team's punt returner, where he impacted the game by returning five punts for a total of 100 yards, the largest chunk coming on a 47 yard return. With De'Anthony Thomas set to return in the near future, it will be interesting to see what the team decides to do with the return spots, but Hammond will play little offensively barring an injury.
A. J. Jenkins WR KC 10 Hrs
Jenkins rushed one time for no gain and failed to catch a pass against the Dolphins on Sunday.
The Chiefs rarely use more than three receivers at one time, and Jenkins barely sees the field as a result. He took six offensive snaps in Sunday's game, receiving a carry on one but doing little else. He will likely continue to have minimal value barring an injury.
Donnie Avery WR KC 10 Hrs
Avery caught just two passes for 12 yards on three targets against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Although Avery is the Chiefs' second wideout behind Dwayne Bowe, Alex Smith doesn't utilize his receivers as much as most quarterbacks. It showed Sunday with Joe McKnight and Travis Kelce as the team's leading receivers in the game. Avery will likely continue to receive minimal stats going forward, with an occasional outburst.
Anthony Sherman RB KC 10 Hrs
Sherman toted the ball one time for four yards and caught a pass for one yard against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Sherman doesn't see many carries as the team's fullback, with his primary job being opening a whole for the Chiefs' running backs in Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis.
Junior Hemingway WR KC 10 Hrs
Hemingway caught two passes for 18 yards on two targets Sunday against the Dolphins.
Hemingway has settled in as the team's third receiver (27 snaps) ahead of A.J. Jenkins (6) and Frankie Hammond (4). For a run-first team, however, the third wide receiver doesn't see much production, and that is the case with Hemingway.
Demetrius Harris TE KC 10 Hrs
Harris failed to record a catch against the Dolphins on Sunday.
While Harris played 13 offensive snaps in the game, he failed to receive a target. He doesn't have much value as the team's third tight end behind Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce.
Josh Bynes LB BAL 10 Hrs
Bynes will sign with Lions and be placed on the active roster, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Bynes will leave the Ravens' practice squad and head to Detroit, which just placed Stephen Tulloch on IR with a torn ACL. The Auburn product has appeared in 26 career games, making nine starts.
James Harrison LB CIN 11 Hrs
Harrison is expected to sign with the Steelers this week, NFL.com reports.
Harrison announced his retirement a month ago, but with the Steelers in dire need of help at linebacker, the 36-year-old will return to the team for which he played nine NFL seasons. Pittsburgh lost Ryan Shazier (knee) and Jarvis Jones (wrist) recently, and has few experienced players to fill the void. While Harrison no longer has elite explosion, he's familiar with defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau's system and can still defend the run. Assuming the signing goes through, Harrison will likely compete with Arthur Moats for playing time.
Clay Matthews LB GB 11 Hrs
The Packers are taking a wait-and-see approach with Matthews' injured groin this week, ESPN.com reports. "It's hard to answer that right now," he said Monday. "Obviously I think it's something I can play with, but you've got to make sure you're operating at a high level. That will be the biggest obstacle, not obstacle but thing to find out, and I think we'll know more on Wednesday or Thursday.
Matthews has never before suffered a groin injury, which was enough of a novelty to keep him on the sideline after picking up the ailment in the fourth quarter of Sunday's defeat at Detroit. Therefore, keep an eye on his status as the week carries on in order to garner his availability for next Sunday's contest in Chicago.
