Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster left Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints with an elbow injury and is questionable to return. McCluster went down in a considerable amount of pain. He entered the game questionable with a shoulder injury. He had three catches for 28 yards before leaving the game and also carried the ball once for five yards.

Fantasy Impact: Dexter McCluster has been a sneakily-effective fantasy commodity due to his high volume of targets, however his durability is proving to be a major concern. While his skill set is an ideal fit for the slot, his size makes him a constant threat to get injured.
