2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Kansas City Chiefs
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Chiefs missed out on the playoffs last year but had a winning record, which was a positive. Kansas City should have another solid team this year that will challenge for a playoff spot. The offense still lacks some complimentary options in the passing game but is improved with Maclin on board. And the running game remains top notch with Jamaal Charles leading the way. The defense isnā??t elite but solid. The Chiefs are a pretty well-rounded team that should be in most games every week. Kansas City might not be a Super Bowl caliber team but just outside that group.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Some might say last season was a breakout one for tight end Travis Kelce, but we think he can improve on that season. He scored just five touchdowns, which was a low number considering his 67 receptions. If he can find the end zone a few more times, his fantasy value soars even more. And donā??t be surprised if his other numbers rise. Remember, he was coming back from a major injury last season and still posted those big numbers. He is going to be a fantasy stud for years to come at tight end.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Jeremy Maclin got a big contract with the Chiefs this offseason, which is a positive for him. But moving to the Chiefs isnā??t going to help his numbers at receiver. Maclin moves from a high-octane offense to a run-first, slow-paced offense. It will be quite the opposite of what Maclin played in the past few seasons. Heā??ll still get some receptions and yards as the No. 1 receiver for the Chiefs, but a repeat of last season is going to be really hard to come by for him. Please donā??t draft him based on last year.

Jun 18, 05:02 PM Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will be taking a week off from football now that minicamp is over. Following the hiatus, Charles will begin an intense workout regimen.
