Darrel Williams expected to start for Chiefs over LeSean McCoy

Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams is expected to start Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens "based off pregame warmups," writes Adam Teicher of ESPN.

What It Means:

Williams was the first running back during pregame warmups, followed by Darwin Thompson, and then LeSean McCoy (ankle). It was assumed McCoy would start in place of Damien Williams (knee), but that may not be the case. Thompson seems guaranteed to play the chance-of-pace role.

The Chiefs face a Ravens defense that has given up a league-low 41 rushing yards (1.8 per carry) through two games.

Mark Andrews (foot) officially active for Ravens Week 3

Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

numberFire's models project Andrews for 6.8 targets, 4.5 receptions, 60.5 yards, 0.37 touchdowns, and 10.5 FanDuel points, at a cost of $6,800. He's the TE5 in our Week 3 fantasy rankings.

Alshon Jeffery (calf) officially out Sunday for Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is inactive for Week 3 against the Detroit Lions.

What It Means:

As expected. Jeffery also appears unlikely to suit up for the Eagles' Week 4 matchup with the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. Nelson Agholor, rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, and Mack Hollins will run in three-wide sets. Zach Ertz could see a few more targets and Dallas Goedert (calf) may also see a boost.

The Eagles' receivers draw a plus matchup in Week 3 against a Lions defense that has given up the 10th-most receiving yards so far this season.

LeSean McCoy (ankle) playing as Chiefs host Ravens

Kansas City Chiefs running back LeSean McCoy (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens.

What It Means:

Damien Williams (knee) is out, setting McCoy up as the Chiefs' lead back. Darwin Thompson also figures to be involved in a game that's expected to be impacted by rain and wind. McCoy was bottled up for 23 yards on 11 carries in Week 2.

McCoy is the RB21 in numberFire's Week 3 fantasy rankings. numberFire's models project him for 14.0 carries, 57.9 yards, 2.6 receptions, 18.4 yards, 0.60 touchdowns, and 12.2 FanDuel points. He costs $5,500.

LeSean McCoy (ankle) reportedly expected to play for Chiefs Week 3

Kansas City Chiefs running back LeSean McCoy (questionable, ankle) is expected to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in Week 3, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

There is "optimisim" that McCoy starts on Sunday afternoon, according to Rapoport. The veteran was upgraded to a full practice on Friday, so it would be a surprise if McCoy isn't in uniform against the Ravens.

McCoy is the RB21 in numberFire's Week 3 fantasy rankings. numberFire's models project him for 14.0 carries, 57.9 yards, 2.6 receptions, 18.4 yards, 0.60 touchdowns, and 12.2 FanDuel points. He costs $5,500.
