Donnie Avery has strained abductor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Chiefs backup pass catchers couldn't do much Week 2 against the Broncos.

Anthony Fasano was the most impressive of the bunch, hauling in three passes for 39 yards. Junior Hemingway caught 2 passes for 21 yards during the outing. Both A.J. Jenkins and Donnie Avery each caught three balls, but gained 16 and 14 yards respectively. 

Tight end Demetrius Harris pulled in one ball for 10 yards. Running back Cyrus Gray didn't have any catches, but carried the ball twice for 8 yards. 

They'll take on the Dolphins Week 3.


Donnie Avery nets 13 targets in Week 1 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) With Dwayne Bowe sidelined Week 1 due to a suspension, Chiefs veteran Donnie Avery was quarterback Alex Smith's go-to receiver during a 26-10 loss against the Titans.

Avery finished with seven catches for 84 yards, which were both team highs. He was also targeted a team-high 13 times and his longest catch went 25 yards. Avery did most of his damage in the second half, as he had just two catches for 21 yards in the first half.

The Chiefs are back in action Week 2 at Denver. Bowe is expected to return from his suspension next week.


Donnie Avery could be Chiefs' top WR Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) As Dwayne Bowe sits out Week 1 against the Titans due to a suspension, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith will need someone to step up in the passing game. One option that could emerge is veteran receiver Donnie Avery, who totaled 40 catches for 596 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with Kansas City in 2013.

Avery had one of his better performances in 2013 against the Titans, totaling 91 yards on three catches. Though, for the most part, wide receivers struggled against Tennessee in 2013. Wide receivers average 126 receiving yards and 14 Fantasy points per week, which was the lowest average in the league. Wide receivers had just six touchdowns in 16 games against Tennessee.

The fact Avery will likely be a top target in the passing game Week 1 with Bowe out makes him a potential sleeper in deeper formats. But there are still plenty of more viable sleepers ahead of Avery, who should be considered more of a desperation start.


Reid: Donnie Avery looks good


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Thursday that receiver Donnie Avery is doing a good job during OTA workouts.

Avery is expected to start opposite Dwayne Bowe this season.

"Donnie looks good," Reid said. "He's running fast, and I remember this time last year he had the high ankle or there was something there, so he really missed all of the OTAs and then he came back and he had the scapula there that he had hurt. He's in good shape right now."

Avery finished 2013 with 40 catches for 596 yards and two touchdowns.


Donnie Avery exits with concussion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) Chiefs wide receiver Donnie Avery came up with one big play in the first half of Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Colts, but that was all the impact he would have. Avery hauled in a 79-yard touchdown in the second quarter, but was forced to leave the game in the third with concussion symptoms.

Avery was taken to the locker room for concussion evaluation, and was ruled out for the remainder of the game shortly after. 


Just 32 yards for Donnie Avery


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Donnie Avery of the Chiefs caught three of four targets against the Colts Sunday for 32 yards. 

Avery will attempt to do better than this in Week 17 at the Chargers before gearing up for the first round of the playoffs. 


Chiefs get minor contributions in Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) The Chiefs received several contributions from role players during Sunday's 56-31 victory over the Raiders in Week 15.

Donnie Avery finished the game as the team's second leading receiver with only two catches for 33 yards on three targets. Cyrus Gray, Anthony Sherman and Chad Hall each finished the game with one reception. Gray had 18, Sherman had 15 and Hall had 11 yards.

Donnie Avery the odd man out


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) With Dwayne Bowe and Dexter McCluster getting close to their usual allotment of targets Week 14 at Washington, someone had to be the odd man out on a day when the Chiefs attempted only 20 passes. Turns out that someone was wide receiver Donnie Avery, who received a season-low two targets, catching one pass for 7 yards.

Avery had gotten at least five targets in four of his previous five games, but in only one of them did he exceed 40 yards. He'll look to regain his footing in an inconsistent passing attack Week 15 at Oakland.


Donnie Avery a go for Week 14


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Chiefs wide receiver Donnie Avery, who was listed as probable on Friday's injury report because of a shoulder issue, is active for Week 14 at Washington. He was able to practice in full all week despite the injury.

Avery's shoulder has bothered him since he landed hard on it in Week 5, but he has yet to miss a game.


Chiefs list seven as probable for game against Redskins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Seven Chiefs have been deemed probable for the game Sunday at Washington, including wide receivers Dexter McCluster (non-injury related) and Donnie Avery (shoulder).

The others are offensive linemen Rodney Hudson (elbow) and Jeff Allen (groin/knee), defensive end Mike DeVito (knee), defensive back Ron Parker (shoulder) and running back Anthony Sherman (knee/ankle).


Chiefs receivers held in check Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Chiefs backup receivers Dexter McCluster, Junior Hemingway, Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins produced decent games Week 13.

Hemingway was the most successful of the bunch, catching three passes for 42 yards and a touchdown. McCluster caught five balls for 43 yards. He also carried the ball once, but did not pick up any yards. Jenkins caught three passes for 35 yards, but had a killer drop on a long play in the third quarter. They'll take on Washington Week 14. Avery caught two passes for 16 yards. 


Donnie Avery plays a big role Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Chiefs wide receiver Donnie Avery played a big role Week 12 against the Chargers. 

Avery only caught four passes, but made the most of his targets. Avery managed to haul in a 32 yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith in the first quarter. He remained a big-play threat, catching another pass for 36 yards. The Chargers were clearly afraid on Avery catching deep balls, as he also forced two defensive pass intereference penalties on consecutive plays. Avery finished the game with 91 receiving yards. He'll take on the Broncos Week 13.


Chiefs get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Several Chiefs made offensive contributions in the Week 10 loss at Denver. No. 2 tight end Sean McGrath caught two passes for 40 yards and wideout Donnie Avery had a 20-yard reception on three targets.

No. 2 running back Knile Davis ran three times for 13 yards and caught an 11-yard pass. Fullback Anthony Sherman had a 1-yard carry and caught two passes for 18 yards, but lost a fumble.

They'll face the Chargers in Week 12.


Chiefs receivers able to go


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Chiefs wideouts Dexter McCluster (ankle) and Donnie Avery (shoulder) are active at Denver after being listed as probable on the injury report. They combined for five catches and 31 yards in last week's win at Buffalo.
