This thread was more fun a couple years ago

He was considered a workhouse back and 100% healthy a couple years ago.

Spencer Ware rushed 15 times for 75 yards and caught all five of his targets for 54 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

He played much better in this one than he did last week against the Raiders. The Ravens were blitzing Patrick Mahomes at will, so he spent a lot of the day flipping the ball out to his running backs and tight ends. Ware had a bunch of yards but lost out on two short touchdowns to Damien Williams, who ran one in from one yard away and then caught a five-yarder. Ware will again be in the RB2 mix on Thursday against the Chargers as long as he's healthy. Ware had to leave for a period of time in the second quarter with a shoulder issue.

Shoulder issue is something to monitor. He may have asked out in overtime.

I've seen nothing confirming a hamstring injury or any injury via Twitter. Fantasy sites quiet also, trying to see other sites.

 

EDIT: There is this by Andy Reid but he didn't say when it occurred. Ware was on the sidelines and got no treatment the plays he was out in OT. He was celebrating with teammates also so not sure how serious it is.

PUBLISHED SUN DEC 9 2:46:00 P.M. MT 2018 

(Rotoworld) Spencer Ware rushed 15 times for 75 yards and caught all five of his targets for 54 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

Analysis: He played much better in this one than he did last week against the Raiders. The Ravens were blitzing Patrick Mahomes at will, so he spent a lot of the day flipping the ball out to his running backs and tight ends.

Found an A. Reid quote on this in one of the local KC sites. Didn't mention anything today on Ware I believe despite saying he expected T. Hill to play. Not sure if that's good (because it's a non issue) or bad (because it's significant).

It’s too early to say and Ware could be getting more test done and/or treatment. As of right now, nothing can be done but wait. I will say that if it was ‘bad’, it would probably be out by now. Yet I would still give it 48 hours (at least) to be safe. Nothing pops then, Ware should be ok for Thursday.

Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) did not practice Monday.

Ware was dinged up a couple times Sunday against the Ravens, missing a series here and there, but Ware was able to return to the game and pile up 129 total yards. Ware should be ready to roll Thursday night against the Bolts.

Dec 10 - 10:25 PM

Reid said that RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is day to day, and he’ll see how he responds to the injury up until Thursday.

Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) remained sidelined at practice Tuesday.

Ware finished Sunday's contest against the Ravens, so his absence is still considered precautionary at this point. Coach Andy Reid said Ware is currently considered "day to day." Wednesday will go a long way in telling what the Chiefs plan to do in their backfield. Damien Williams would become a usage-based RB2 in the unlikely event Ware is out.

Seems we won't know until Wednessday/Thursday.

He came back after the shoulder injury in the first half and played well. 

I believe the hamstring injury was in his final touch in the 4th quarter and he never played a snap in OT (both Williams played.) 

We really need him to practice tomorrow.

If Ware is out does Damian Williams become a better start than either were before? I'm sure Darrel Williams will take some touches but still.

If Ware is out I could see Charcandrick West getting activated and receiving a decent amount of snaps.

would guess williams takes ware's role and west slides in to williams current 3rd down role... that's what west did in 2016 when he played behind ware

I think it would be 1. Damien, 2. Darrel, 3, Charcandrick. West can't be in football shape yet.

Have Ware, thankfully was able to pick up Williams. If Ware is inactive, Williams goes in.

Have both as well...deciding between either of them and Sony

Ware is doubtful tomorrow per Rotoworld

Ugh, yet I have Damien, Justin, and M. Gordon in the leagues I play, so I am ok for my second RB spots. Hopefully this is a one week miss for Spencer though.

That's the $100K question. 

Anyone dropping him for more immediate needs this week and/or next? If so, for whom?

Not me.

My biggest fear in fantasy football is that I will cut a RB and then end up getting beat by the team who picked them up.

I don't wanna play against Ware in the finals. Of course everyone's situation is different depending on league type, roster size, all of that but I'm hanging on to him.

I am not dropping him. I will put him in my IR spot when he’s out officially, just figuring out if I should keep Ekeler now to free up that IR spot. Already have Gordon and JJ and next week is Balt, but that’s for another thread.

Ware trending out, missed picking up Williams. I have Cook, Carson and Miller so I can live, but for the love of God guys DON'T DROP WARE. He should be fine for next week. I mean if you are still playing you are in the Semis at least, don't let him go to an opponent.

Ware, Conner, and ODB for me. Not as extensive a list as yours but considering they all got hurt in the past two weeks it has been a pretty big blow. Luckily my league is two weeks each round in the playoffs (10 team league. 4 teams make playoffs. Semifinals total points from weeks 14&15. Championship total points from week 16&17) so I still have a chance.

Mcguire returned to a limited practice today if that helps. I just picked him up in case Conner is out for me again.

Options for my last flex spot actually help with game times:

OBJ 1pm, if he sits,  I'll play Damien Williams as long as Ware is out and if Ware plays - I'll play Baldwin.

Here's hoping Ware isn't a GTD and we know ahead of time.

The last time Ware and Williams played together was 2 weeks ago against Baltimore, maybe the best run defense in the league.

Ware: 17.9 PPR Points

Williams: 19 PPR Points

So while it may be a RBBC that is tough to predict, that "mess" will most likely put up some points in that offense.

Can't say you weren't warned!
