2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 14 ISSUES: UNDERWHELMING START BY SPENCER WARE CALLS HIS FUTURE STATUS INTO DOUBT

Even though it has been a few days, the news that the Kansas City Chiefs released star running back Kareem Hunt after a video surfaced of him putting his hands on a woman still are reverberating in the world of fantasy football.  Not only did Hunt's owners lose a slam-dunk top player in all of the game just as the playoff week draws near, the installation of backup Spencer Ware into the starter's role created a feeding frenzy on the waiver in those leagues he was still available.  Right off the bat Yahoo projected Ware for 15.5 points in PPR formats and those who were lucky enough to snag him off waiver began to crow about their good fortune.  Alas, Ware's performance in Week 13 was anything but impressive as he rushed for just 47 yards on 14 carries against a miserable Oakland Raiders defense and he managed to catch just one pass for another 5 yards.  Luckily for Ware, he was able to score a rushing touchdown which saved his day as his PPR total came in at just 12.20.  Making matters more concerning was the fact Andy Reid gave 5 carries for third-stringer Damien Williams and also two receptions as well.  Then after the game Reid said he envisioned somewhat of a committee going forward along with UDFA Darrel Williams and that was before the team brought back Charcandrick West who had shown flashes for the team the last few seasons.  Combining all of this together, it doesn't paint the best picture for Ware going forward into Week 14 and other than original Hunt owners who are left in the lurch, the better idea is to probably see what his usage is like this Sunday before going to the well here again.  While Ware is very capable, the workload has to be there for him to make an impact.
