Cairo Santos was 2-for-2 on field goal attempts and converted two extra points during the Chiefs' 24-20 loss to the Raiders on Thursday.

Santos is having himself a solid season on special teams for the Chiefs as he has now converted 15 of his 17 field goal attempts while connecting on all 30 of his extra points. Outside of deep leagues Santos is likely unowned, but if keeps converting at a high rate prospective fantasy owners may want to invest in this first-year pro.

Josh Mauga recorded 10 tackles, including one quarterback hit and one tackle for a loss, during the Chiefs' 24-20 loss to the Raiders on Thursday.

Mauga is now sitting on 76 tackles (64 solo) on the season as he remains one of the more consistent players to rack up tackles on a weekly basis. However, he has yet to record a sack this season, so his fantasy value relies solely on his ability to get to the ball carrier, so as long as he continues to rack up tackles he is a must-start in IDP formats.

Travis Kelce caught four passes on five targets for 67 yards during the Chiefs' 24-20 loss to the Raiders on Thursday.

Despite not getting into the end zone for the third straight game, Kelce was able to haul in all but one of his five target for 67 yards, which is a respectable outcome for his fantasy owners. Although his production of late hasn't been what we saw from him earlier in the season, he remains a must-start option at the tight end position, considering he is the best receiver on the Chiefs roster and a big red zone threat.

Dwayne Bowe caught three passes on five targets for 42 yards during the Chiefs' 24-20 loss to the Raiders on Thursday.

Bowe was practically a non-factor on Thursday night as he remains without a touchdown catch this season. After logging two games of double-digit targets earlier in the month, Bowe have reverted right back to his old self, which is nothing special at this point in his career. Outside of being viewed as a reserve, Bowe shouldn't be owned outside of the deepest of fantasy formats.

Jamaal Charles carried the ball 19 times for 80 yards during the Chiefs' 24-20 loss to the Raider on Thursday. He also caught four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown.

Charles has now scored at least one touchdown in six straight games as he continues to be a top-10 fantasy option at the running back position. Whether on the ground or in the passing game, Charles continues to get the job done for his fantasy owners and barring a major injury his stock should remain at an elite level, no matter who he is matched up against on a given week.

Alex Smith completed 20-of-36 passes for 234 yards with two touchdowns during the Chiefs' 24-20 loss to the Raiders on Thursday. 

After failing to throw for a touchdown in each of his last two games, Smith was able to get back on the board in Week 12 as he threw for two touchdowns while not throwing an interception for the sixth straight game. The Chiefs have had success without Smith doing much outside of being a game manager, so as far as fantasy value is concerned there is no reason to own him at this time now that the bye weeks are over.

Chiefs training staff is working on the back of Kevin Vickerson's lower right leg.

No word on the extent of Vickerson's injury, but it's never a good initial sign when the training staff is involved. We should have an update on Vickerson's status soon.

Donald Stephenson (shoulder) is questionable to return.

Chiefs' WR Junior Hemingway is being evaluated for a concussion.

If Hemingway does in fact have a concussion, he will obviously be out for the remainder of the game. We will have an update on his status soon.
