Peyton Hillis is inactive for Sunday's game between the Chiefs and the Chargers. Jamaal Charles is expected to handle the full rushing load once again.

Peyton Hillis is inactive for Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Diego Chargers. Hillis was listed as doubtful heading into the weekend with an ankle injury suffered last week against the New Orleans Saints. He did not practice this week with his injured ankle in a walking boot.

Fantasy Impact: This should come as zero surprise if you were paying attention to injury reports throughout the week. With Hillis out, expect Jamaal Charles to once again receive a ton of touches out of the backfield. Charles is approaching RB1 status after scorching the Saints for 233 yards rushing last week. He is a must-start going forward in just about every fantasy format.
