2013 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Kansas City Chiefs
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Chiefs are going to be better than last year. They made several improvements during the offseason, most notably at head coach. Reid can be a big difference maker for the Chiefs. Plus, the team finally has a solid No. 1 quarterback in Smith. The ingredients are there for a turnaround. It wouldn't shock us to see the Chiefs sneak into the playoffs a wild card team. This team is going in the right direction these days.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Alex Smith, QB. His numbers have never been off the charts but improved some the last few years with the 49ers opening up their offense more. Smith plays in an offense this season that should be the most pass friendly he has ever played. New head coach Andy Reid has a history of producing good fantasy quarterbacks. If Smith is ever going to produce a big fantasy season, this is the year it happens. The Chiefs do lack a little talent offensively but have enough pieces in place for Smith to be successful. It wouldn't surprise to see Smith emerge as a low-end No. 1 for fantasy teams.

FANTASY DUD

Dexter McCluster, WR. First off, we like McCluster and his upside for this season. But with that said, the hype surrounding him has us worried. We think he'll be drafted higher than he should. He'll get his touches but he isn't going to be a huge, consistent weekly producer. He'll be more of a spot starter for fantasy teams than anything. Don't overvalue him come draft day. He isn't going to be a fantasy stud in this offense, working as the No. 3 receiver and occasional running back.

Team Notes

Apr 16, 07:03 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe pleaded guilty Wednesday, April 16, after being arrested last November for marijuana possession. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment, and in return, the marijuana charge was dismissed. He agred to pay $610 in fines and court costs.
Apr 14, 02:02 AM Draft stock for Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater appears to be falling based on recent workouts, so the Kansas City Chiefs may take a flier on Bridgewater if he is available with the 23rd overall selection. The Chiefs do not have a second-round pick and it is believed Bridgewater would be insurance for QB Alex Smith.
Apr 05, 11:42 PM The Kansas City Chiefs have TE Anthony Fasano as the starter at tight end, but TE Travis Kelce will be the top pass-receiver at the position, and he is an important piece of the passing game
Apr 05, 11:42 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Donnie Avery is still listed as a starter, but it remains to be seen whether he will remain as a starter or even make the team. The team has high hopes for WR A.J. Jenkins, who could potentially take away some of Avery's playing time if Jenkins develops. The team also plans to draft at least one receiver, and if he is ready to help right away, Avery might be released.
Mar 25, 09:43 AM Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Fisher will switch from right tackle to left tackle in 2014.
Mar 21, 06:22 PM The Kansas City Chiefs signed free-agent CB Christopher Owens (Dolphins) to an undisclosed deal Friday, March 21.
Mar 20, 07:42 PM The Tampa Bay Buccaneers met with free-agent CB Christopher Owens (Dolphins) Thursday, March 20.
Mar 18, 10:03 PM Free-agent CB Christopher Owens (Dolphins) will visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week.
Mar 18, 05:13 PM The Kansas City Chiefs' contract extension negotiations with QB Alex Smith are ongoing. He has one year and $7.5 million left on his current contract, and there remains no timetable for an extension to be reached, according to general manager John Dorsey.
Mar 14, 08:12 PM Updating a previous report, the Kansas City Chiefs signed DT Vance Walker to a three-year deal worth as much as $13.75 million. The deal includes at least $3.75 million in guaranteed money.
Mar 14, 07:42 PM The Kansas City Chiefs signed free-agent DT Vance Walker (Raiders) to an undisclosed deal Friday, March 14.
Mar 13, 11:52 PM The Green Bay Packers have a visit scheduled with free-agent DT Vance Walker (Raiders).
Mar 12, 04:53 PM The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with free-agent LB Joe Mays (Texans) on a two-year deal worth $6 million.
Mar 12, 11:33 AM Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs SS Husain Abdullah signed a two-year, $2.27 million with a $750,000 signing bonus.
Mar 11, 10:53 PM The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in free agent LB Joe Mays (Texans). Head coach Andy Reid selected Mays in the 2008 NFL Draft in the sixth round when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Mar 11, 08:43 PM The Kansas City Chiefs re-signed free-agent SS Husain Abdullah (Chiefs) to a two-year deal Tuesday, March 11, according to a source. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.
