Peyton Hillis fantasy stock falling, listed doubtful for Week 4

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Peyton Hillis is listed doubtful for Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Hillis is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers, according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. Hillis suffered an ankle injury in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, and was unable to practice while wearing a walking boot this week. Dexter McCluster is listed as questionable with an elbow injury.

Fantasy Impact: With Hillis more than like out and McCluster banged up (though he is more of a WR than an RB these days), expect Jamaal Charles to once again take on a heavy workload Sunday. Shaun Draughn could potentially leech a short-yardage or goal-line carry or two, but after rushing for 233 yards last week expect Charles to once again star out of the Chiefs' backfield. Charles could be shaping up to be one of the elite fantasy prospects in the game, assuming he stays healthy.
