Outlook

The Chiefs were a playoff team last year and seem to have the pieces in place to return to the playoffs. The offense isn't explosive but consistent. The running game is very good and the passing game is making more big plays with Jeremy Maclin in the mix. The defense isn't going to shutout the opposition but is above average. The secondary does a good job and the team has some good pass rushers. This is a pretty complete team. Kansas City might not be a Super Bowl winning team but are just outside of that group.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Charcandrick West was a surprise his rookie season, getting some starts because of injury and doing very well in that role. He is likely to get a chance to split work this season with the aging Jamaal Charles. West could emerge as the back to own in this offense. He does a good job of making big plays with the ball in his hands and is an improving pass catcher. He has the potential to top 1,000 total yards and get seven or eight scores in this offense.
FANTASY DUD
Running back Jamaal Charles is returning from a torn ACL but should be about ready for the start of the season. But even with that said, he is expected to split more work with West this year. West is the future at the position. Charles still has the potential for big games this year but a repeat of past seasons is going to be a stretch. His numbers were down a little before last season's injury, topping 80-rushing yards just once in five games.
