The Kansas City Chiefs have declined their fifth-year option on wide receiver Kadarius Toney, according to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team. By doing so, the Chiefs will opt against bringing Toney back for $14.345 million in 2025. Instead, he'll finish out his rookie contract in Kansas City this season before hitting free agency next March. Toney had a fifth-year option due to his status as a former first-round pick. He has been a massive disappointment since the Giants selected him in the 2021 NFL Draft. Toney totaled 760 receiving yards, 119 rushing yards, and four total touchdowns through his first three seasons, and he also struggled to stay healthy, playing in just 12 games for the Giants and 20 for the Chiefs. He remains an inferior receiver to Travis Kelce, Rashee Rice, and Xavier Worthy, leaving Toney on waivers in most redraft leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney is still with the team and is participating in throwing sessions with quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Texas. Even though Toney was benched for the final three regular-season games and four more in the playoffs after his mistakes hurt the team earlier in the year, both general manager Brett Veach and head coach Andy Reid sound as if Toney is in their plans for 2024. "He is probably our most talented wideout now," Veach said. Along with mistakes, injuries have made it hard for Toney to stay on the field and consistent since being acquired in a trade from the Giants in 2022. The Chiefs are staying patient with the 25-year-old former first-rounder, though, especially with Rashee Rice facing a multi-week suspension for his involvement in a six-car crash.

Dynasty | Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney is going to be a healthy scratch for the Super Bowl. Dynasty Analysis: It's been a disaster of a season for Toney and this is just going to put a cherry on top. After being ineffective most of the year, he turned destructive on social media lately and has a lot of work to do in order to secure a place on the Kansas City roster next season. At this point, it would be a surprise to see him back with the Chiefs and a release seems like the more likely scenario this off-season. Toney's dynasty value is hanging by a thread.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (coach's decision) is officially a healthy scratch for Sunday's Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. An apparent rift has grown between Toney and the team this playoffs, with the receiver accusing the Chiefs of misconstruing his injury status. Head coach Andy Reid indicated Toney would likely be inactive for the big game, and now it's official. He finishes the year having caught 27 of 39 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown through 13 regular-season games. He also added 31 rushing yards and 58 punt return yards. Rashee Rice, Travis Kelce, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are expected to operate as Patrick Mahomes' top options in the passing game versus the Niners.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney is not expected to play in Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, according to a league source. Toney had a big game in last year's Super Bowl win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but he struggled with injuries and inconsistent play in 2023 and hasn't played in a game since Week 15. In that Week 15 game against the New England Patriots, Toney deflected a pass to a defender for an interception for the second time this year. He made headlines earlier in the playoffs when he said he was "not hurt" after the win over the Ravens in the AFC Championship game. The 25-year-old was expected to have a bigger role in his first full year in KC, but instead he finished with just 27 receptions (38 targets) for 169 yards and one touchdown during the regular season.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney was taken off the injury report last week. Head coach Andy Reid said that Toney has been practicing but was non-committal about whether the receiver would play in the Super Bowl this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. "We'll see, I don't know. He's been practicing. We'll just see whether he's up or not," Reid said. With Toney and Skyy Moore (knee) not having played since Week 15, the Chiefs have relied heavily on tight end Travis Kelce, rookie receiver Rashee Rice and running back Isiah Pacheco and that should continue this weekend. Even if Toney is active for the Chiefs in the Super Bowl, fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to be on the field for many offensive snaps.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (personal) practiced in full for the second straight day on Thursday and was officially removed from the team's injury report leading up to the Super Bowl next weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. Toney has not played at all since Week 15 and has recently been listed on the injury report with ankle and hip injuries before saying that he hasn't been injured and the Chiefs have mismanaged their injury report. The 25-year-old former first-rounder was also away from the team last weekend for the birth of his child. Toney is getting healthy with one game left in the Chiefs' season, but even if he's active in the Super Bowl, Toney won't be expected to be a big part of the team's offensive game plan.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (personal) was listed as a full participant for the team's walkthrough practice on Wednesday. Toney hasn't played since Week 15 due to ankle and hip injuries, but he voiced frustration after the AFC Championship win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday that he hasn't been injured. The 25-year-old also was away from the team last week for the birth of his child. Toney enters this week without any injuries attached to his name, so he should be just fine to take part in the Super Bowl on Feb. 11 against the San Francisco 49ers. In any event, even if Toney is active for the Super Bowl, it's unlikely that he'll have much of a role in the Chiefs' offense. After all, the former first-rounder only had 27 catches during the regular season for 169 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip), who has missed the team's last six games, will practice in the next two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. Toney was ruled out of Sunday's AFC Championship win over the Baltimore Ravens and apparently posted an audio recording on social media on Sunday morning, claiming that he's "not hurt" and that the Chiefs have mismanaged their injury designations. The former first-rounder practiced in full last Wednesday before being limited on Thursday and Friday but was inactive on Sunday, the day of his daughter's birth. Toney had a glaring drop in Week 15 and has played in just one game since lining up offsides on the memorable play that took a potential game-winning touchdown away from KC in their Week 14 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Dynasty | Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney blasted the team on social media after being declared inactive on Sunday. Dynasty Analysis: Toney was inactive due to a "hip injury and other personal reasons." Apparently Toney is healthy and didn't appreciate the Chiefs not having him suit up. You can read the rant if you'd like but it's clearly nothing we can even type here. Toney has clearly burned a bridge with the team and it would be surprising to see him active for the Super Bowl. In fact, it's unlikely we see him in a Chiefs uniform again. Toney has dropped all the way to WR77 and this won't help matters much.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip, personal) wasn't active for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. However, the wideout took to Instagram Live on Sunday, accusing the organization of lying about his injury. "I'm not hurt," Toney said during the video. "None of that. It goes from hip to ankle to this to that." The 2021 No. 20 overall pick had plenty of promise entering the league. But he hasn't lived up to expectations, recently finishing the 2023-24 campaign with 27 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. Toney also made several critical on-the-field errors, including a costly offsides penalty in Week 14 that potentially resulted in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. At any rate, Toney likely won't be active for the Super Bowl, assuming the Chiefs advance. It's also possible he's already played his final game in Kansas City. Now the question remains if any team will want him on the roster come next season.

The Kansas City Chiefs have downgraded wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip, personal) from questionable to out for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Baltimore Ravens. Toney was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, but the 25-year-old former first-rounder will miss his sixth straight game because of his hip injury. With Toney out yet again, it will mean that Justin Watson and Mecole Hardman Jr. will compete for targets behind rookie wideout Rashee Rice and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The oft-injured Toney just hasn't been able to stay on the field consistently in his NFL career and disappointed with only 27 receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets over 13 regular-season games in 2023 in his first full season with the Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) is officially listed as questionable to suit up this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game. Toney got off to a good start at practice this week when he was able to practice in full on Wednesday, but he was downgraded to limited on Thursday and is in danger of missing his sixth straight game. The oft-injured 24-year-old former first-rounder has not played since the team's Week 15 win over the New England Patriots and will surely be on a snap count if he's cleared to play in Baltimore this weekend. Even if Toney is active against the Ravens, he shouldn't be in consideration for DFS lineups. Toney had just 27 catches on 38 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown in 13 regular-season games for Kansas City in 2023.

Jan 25 4:50pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) was a limited participant for Thursday's practice after putting in a full practice on Wednesday. The 2021 first-round pick has not played since Week 16 due to a hip injury, and it remains to be seen if he will return for the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. Toney caught just 27 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown and rushed 11 times for 31 yards in 13 regular season games, so he is not a strong DFS consideration if he suits up on Sunday. Rashee Rice has established himself as the clear No. 2 target behind Travis Kelce in Kansas City's offense.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) was listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills on Friday's final injury report, but he was downgraded to out on Saturday. Toney was limited in practice all week but will now miss his fifth straight game. If the Chiefs advance to the AFC Championship next weekend, it remains to be seen if Toney will be available. If he is, he won't really be on the fantasy radar for DFS gamers, as the former first-rounder had just 27 catches on 38 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown in 13 games in his first full season for KC in 2023. With Toney out again this weekend against Buffalo, Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman Jr. will see more opportunities behind rookie Rashee Rice against a beat up Bills secondary.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice for the second straight day on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Justyn Ross (hamstring) returned to a limited practice after being a DNP on Tuesday. Toney is trending toward playing on super wild-card weekend this Saturday evening against the Miami Dolphins despite missing each of the final three games of the regular season. The Dolphins have been absolutely decimated by injuries on the defensive side of the ball in recent weeks, which is good news for a Chiefs offense that was rather mediocre during the regular season. Still, even if the 24-year-old Toney is active this weekend, he'll be a boom/bust DFS option with limited upside. In his first full year with KC, Toney had just 27 catches for 169 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Justyn Ross (hamstring) didn't practice. Toney, who was disappointing in his first full year with the Chiefs in 2023, is hoping to return for Saturday's wild-card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins after missing the last three games of the regular season. The 24-year-old wasn't used in the Chiefs' offense as much as expected and finished with only 27 receptions on 38 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown in 13 games while carrying the ball 11 times for 31 yards. Even if he returns for wild-card weekend in a plus matchup against the banged-up Dolphins defense, DFS gamers should be able to find more reliable low-cost options for their lineups. Ross wasn't a fantasy name to begin with, but he might not be able to play this Saturday after hurting his hamstring in the Week 18 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jan 3 7:00pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) was able to return to the practice field on Wednesday on a limited basis. Toney has missed the last two games but could be getting healthy enough to suit up in this Sunday's Week 18 regular season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers. And with the Chiefs likely resting notable starters because they've already locked up the No. 3 seed in the AFC, there's a possibility that Toney could get some decent run in a fantastic matchup against LA this weekend. Still, the oft-injured former first-rounder would be a boom/bust DFS option if he returns to play against the Chargers with backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert running the offense. The 24-year-old Toney has been disappointing in his first full year with KC, catching 27 passes for 169 yards and one touchdown.

Dec 29 2:30pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) will not play in Week 17 on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Toney is dealing with a strained hip and will miss his second straight game. The oft-injured former first-rounder continues to disappoint in his first full season with the Chiefs. The 24-year-old was expected to have a much bigger role in 2023, but instead he's caught only 27 of 38 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown in 13 games played. He's added 11 rushing attempts for 31 yards. Toney will enter next season off the fantasy radar. Rookie Rashee Rice is the clear leader of KC's receiver room, followed by Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Richie James. It looks like the Chiefs will be getting Mecole Hardman Jr. (thumb) back this week, too.

Dec 28 1:50pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) will miss a second straight day of practice this week on Thursday. Toney missed the Week 16 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day due to a hip injury and is now firmly in danger of missing a second straight game in Week 17 versus the Cincinnati Bengals. The 24-year-old hasn't really been on the fantasy radar all year anyway, catching 27 passes for 169 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets in his first full season in Kansas City. If he is forced to sit out again this Sunday, it would give receivers like Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Richie James more opportunities behind rookie Rashee Rice. Rice has been the team's only reliable weapon from a fantasy perspective in 2023.
