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.
