Junior Hemingway WR KC 2 Days
Hemingway caught two passes for 21 yards on three targets Sunday against the Broncos.
Hemingway serves as the team's third or fourth wide receiver, splitting time with A.J. Jenkins. While Hemingway saw 34 offensive snaps compared to 24 for Jenkins, he still doesn't serve much value in the Chiefs' run-heavy offense.

Hemingway failed to record a reception on two targets Sunday against the Titans.
Hemingway served largely as the team's third wide receiver, taking 33 snaps (58 percent) on offense. With Dwayne Bowe set to return from a suspension next week, Hemingway's value will remain low.

Hemingway (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.
With Dwayne Bowe suspended for Week 1, Hemingway is expected to move into the slot while Frankie Hammond replaces Bowe on the outside. While it's a decent spot given Alex Smith's relatively low deep-ball activity, Hemingway isn't likely to burn up many fantasy scoreboards either.

Hemingway (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Titans, the Tennessean reports.
With Dwayne Bowe out this week due to a suspension, Hemingway figures to handle the team's slot duties Sunday against the Titans, with Frankie Hammond likely on track to start opposite Donnie Avery.

Coach Andy Reid said Hemingway (hip) will return this week and will receive some of the snaps left vacant by Dwayne Bowe, who is suspended for Week 1, Adam Teicher of ESPN Kansas City reports.
Hemingway left the first preseason game with the hip injury and missed both the second and third games because of it. He will split snaps with Frankie Hammond, that week, while both will probably see the field in three and four wide receiver sets.

Hemingway (hip) is among the Chiefs' scratches for Thursday's preseason finale.
It's not surprising that the Chiefs are holding Hemingway out of their preseason finale, given that he is dealing with a hip issue. At this stage, it's unclear if he'll be ready to go in Week 1, though his practice participation next week should add some clarity to his status on that front.

Hemingway (hip) did not practice Monday, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Hemingway appears to be the favorite to take the starting spot for Week 1 while Dwayne Bowe serves his suspension, but his absence from practice gives the receivers behind him a chance to show what they've got. The wideout missed Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, and it's unclear how long the injury will keep him sidelined.

Hemingway (hip) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
With Dwayne Bowe suspended for Week 1, Hemingway is the favorite to start across from Donnie Avery. Frankie Hammond Jr., who started Saturday's game, would appear to be the other candidate. Whichever of Hammond and Hemingway starts will likely just have one-week appeal in deeper leagues.
