2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Kansas City Chiefs
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Chiefs won't sneak up on anyone this year, so a bit of a dip in wins this season wouldn't be a surprise. They do have a good team, though, and should challenge for a playoff spot. The defense is a bit underrated and the offense gets the job done with Jamaal Charles leading the way. The Chiefs will win their share of games but probably aren't a Super Bowl caliber team just yet. They still need playmakers in the passing game, and Alex Smith needs to take more chances downfield to keep defenses honest.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Tight end Travis Kelce played just a game his rookie season before needing knee surgery. He remains in the plans for the Chiefs, though. He'll serve as the top pass-catching tight end for the Chiefs. He'll get some targets in a passing game looking for options to catch the ball. He could really surprise. Kelce is a talented player with good athleticism and playmaking ability. He also blocks pretty well. It probably is just a matter of time before he is the starting tight end for the Chiefs.
FANTASY DUD
Quarterback Alex Smith remained a game manager more than a different maker in his first season for the Chiefs. He serves this role well but isn't going to be a huge help for fantasy teams unless he is in the right matchup. And the Chiefs still lack some top options in the passing game, which doesn't help Smith. This team will remain a run-first, ball control offense. Smith won't take many shots downfield and post mediocre numbers once again.

Jan 20, 04:23 PM Kansas City Chiefs QB Tyler Bray (knee) has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Fantasy Impact: This puts his upcoming season in jeopardy.
Jan 08, 03:13 AM The Kansas City Chiefs signed WR Da'Rick Rogers to a contract Wednesday, Jan. 7. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Impact: Rogers has plenty of talent but can't stay out of trouble. He could make an impact with the Chiefs if he gets his head on straight.
Jan 08, 03:03 AM The Kansas City Chiefs signed QB Terrelle Pryor to a one-year contract Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Impact: He will compete for a roster spot but we doubt he makes the team.
Jan 07, 12:53 PM Free-agent QB Terrelle Pryor (Seahawks) is working out for the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, Jan. 7, according to a source. Pryor is only working out as a quarterback.
Jan 05, 07:13 PM Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has earned a reputation for throwing the shorter routes, which means receivers often don't pile up big statistics when they play with him. That could have an effect on free-agent wideouts deciding to sign with the Chiefs over other teams.
Jan 05, 07:03 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is a candidate to be cut this offseason if the team can't work out a reduced contract with him.

Fantasy Impact: This wouldn't be a surprise. His production hasn't been great while his contract is high. It might do his value good to go to another team, though.
