Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley scores in Week 2.

Conley caught a post from the slot for a 15-yard score on one of Patrick Mahomes' three first-quarter touchdowns against the Steelers. Conley fumbled his only other reception of the game, and ended up with two receptions (on two target) for 17 yards, a touchdown, and a fumble lost in the win. The athletic Conley is a valuable member of Kansas City's offense, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

Chris Conley catches one pass in Week 1 win.

It went for 15 yards. We like Conley's talent, but he will have a difficult time turning into a fantasy contributor with everyone from Tyreek Hill to Anthony Sherman getting involved on Kansas City's offense.

Chris Conley (Achilles) says "things are pretty close back to normal."

Conley suffered his torn Achilles in Week 5 of last season, but he's been participating in offseason activities and feels close to 100%. He's not participating fully, as they don't want to push too much volume, but it sounds like he could be full-go for training camp. Kansas City added Sammy Watkins to a big contract in free agency, but they also lost Albert Wilson to the Dolphins in free agency, so Conley has a good chance at being the team's third wide receiver behind Watkins and Tyreek Hill. Before his injury last season, Conley was averaging 15.9 yards per reception. Conley is a very gifted and athletic player, and his presence should help make the Chiefs one of the most athletic and exciting offenses in the league this season. Conley might not be a big-time fantasy factor in standard-sized leagues as long as Watkins and Hill stay healthy, but he's a boost for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the offense overall.

Chris Conley gets carted off with lower leg injury.

This looks to be a very serious injury for the fourth-year receiver, as a slow motion shot showed his calf "rippling." Obviously, it's early to say for certain what the injury is, but it certainly looks to be an Achilles injury for Conley. It's very unfortunate to see, and—though he doesn't put up huge numbers—he's a big part of the Chiefs offense and they'll need to find ways to replace him. Second-year receiver Demarcus Robinson is a candidate for more snaps.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley gets four targets in Week 4.

Conley caught two passes for 31 yards against the Redskins, and he was targeted deep by Smith as well but they did not connect. Through four games, the third-year receiver is on pace for 32 receptions, 516 yards, and no touchdowns, but he could certainly improve that pace moving forward.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley catches all four targets in Week 2.

Conley had a very solid game against the Eagles, gaining 55 yards on his four receptions, including an important 35-yarder on a go route. Despite his clear contributions to the Chiefs in real life, he's not yet a reliable fantasy option in your lineup. He's worth a bench spot, though.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley catches two-of-four targets in Week 1.

Conley had a 25-yard reception and an 18-yard reception versus New England. The third-year receiver will probably be more of a contributor in real life than in fantasy, but he'll have some good weeks and should be more consistent in the box score this year.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley plays very well in preseason opener for KC.

After the departure of Jeremy Maclin, Conley is expected to step up for the Chiefs. He had two receptions for 46 yards, including a very nice back-shoulder catch in the first quarter. Conley also had a long touchdown called back because he was called for offensive pass interference. The third-year receiver from Georgia has a lot of athletic ability, and he could have a breakout season after he progressed through his two seasons in the NFL. He's a sleeper in deeper leagues.

Chris Conley caught four passes for 55 yards in Week 17.

Conley has taken step forward in his second season, with 44 receptions for 530 yards. He didn't score, but is a regular player for the Chiefs' offense. Conley will be a key part of the Kansas City offense in the playoffs.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley catches two passes for 70 yards against the Raiders.

Conley had a beautiful diving catch for a 39-yard gain early in the game, then got a clutch first down with a 31-yard gain late in the game. With Jeremy Maclin back, Conley can step into more of a complimentary role to Maclin, Kelce, and Tyreek Hill. Conley is more of a contributor to the Chiefs than he will be for your fantasy team. He can stay on the waiver wire.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Conley doesn't catch a pass in win.

The second-year wideout can stay on the waiver wire. Jeremy Maclin is expected back for Week 14.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley catches three passes for 26 yards in Week 12 win.

He’s not really on the fantasy radar despite his contributions to the Chiefs offense.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Chris Conley caught four passes for 28 yards in the Chiefs’ loss to Tampa Bay.

Conley still doesn’t have a touchdown in his career, and can stay on the waiver wire outside of deeper leagues, even if Jeremy Maclin (groin) remains out.

Chris Conley | Chiefs WR

Conley catches just one pass in win.

It went for 12 yards. The second-year player had a chance to step up with Jeremy Maclin (groin) out, but rookie Tyreek Hill (10 catches, 89 yards) was the only player for go over 31 receiving yards. Conley is off the fantasy radar for this year.
