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.

Team Notes

Aug 26, 05:53 PM Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis has been playing more this preseason. Davis said he's been enjoying the extra repetitions as RB Jamaal Charles rests. 'This is what the preseason is for,' Davis said. 'Everyone knows who the starters are. Backups get the opportunity to show what they can do.' Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said the one aspect of Davis' game that has stood out is his ability to catch the football. Davis said he'd like to continue his catching consistence and give the Chiefs versatility as a receiver.
Aug 24, 02:02 PM Kansas City Chiefs DT Dontari Poe (back) is making good progress in his recovery from offseason surgery and may be a little ahead of schedule, according to head coach Andy Reid. Poe has said he wants to play Week 1, but Reid said there is no timetable for his return.
Aug 22, 01:12 AM Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin caught three passes for 22 yards and a score in the first half of a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Friday, Aug. 21, and he added one carry for eight yards.
Aug 18, 01:42 PM Kansas City Chiefs OT Jeff Allen (knee) suffered a sprained knee in the first preseason game last week. OTs Donald Stephenson and Jarrod Pughsley have been forced into starting roles in practice with both Allen and OT Eric Fisher (ankle) injured.

Aug 18, 09:22 AM Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Fisher (ankle) has a sprained ankle, an MRI confirmed, which will keep him out a couple of weeks.
Aug 17, 03:02 PM Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Fisher (ankle) was carted off the field during practice Monday, Aug. 17, with an ankle injury. Fisher has a high-ankle sprain.

Fantasy Impact: Fisher is a big part of the Chiefs o-line, so they need him to get healthy before the start of the year.
Aug 17, 01:42 PM Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Fisher (ankle) left practice early Monday, Aug. 17, because of an ankle injury. Head coach Andy Reid said he is not sure if Fisher is dealing with a high ankle sprain.
Aug 12, 12:13 PM Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry (illness) is expected to receive playing time in the first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 15.
Aug 12, 09:43 AM Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (neck) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 12.
Aug 10, 06:52 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has impressed QB Alex Smith in practices this summer. 'I feel like that's the ultimate tool. For coach (Andy) Reid, he just loves drawing up stuff and creating stuff, so Jeremy will be all over the field,' Smith said. 'He'll be inside, he'll be outside, deep, short, running the ball, throwing the ball. I mean Jeremy is a guy that can do so much.' Head coach Andy Reid's schemes and offensive language remain largely the same from the time he and Maclin worked together with the Philadelphia Phillies, so Maclin doesn't need a ton of time to acclimate to his new offense.
