Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. McCluster is dealing with a shoulder injury and was limited in practice all week. Matt Cassel has been targeting McCluster frequently in the early going this season, so he would love to have him available against a soft New Orleans passing defense.

Fantasy Impact: McCluster is a decent option in points per reception leagues, but this injury clouds his status for Week 3. If he plays, PPR owners would be wise to slot McCluster into the starting lineup. He's a good bet to pick up at least five receptions out of the slot.
