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.

Dec 24, 06:33 PM Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Dec 24, 06:23 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) was held out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Dec 22, 05:13 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) is dealing with what the team is calling a sprained shoulder, and his availability for Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers is in question. However, head coach Andy Reid is optimistic that Bowe will be able to play in the season finale. Bowe missed all of practice last week while dealing with the flu and still caught six passes for 57 yards in Week 16. Knowing Dwayne, he doesn't miss much,' Reid said. I think he'll be OK once it's all said and done here. We've got a little different schedule because of Christmas and we'll practice tomorrow. It will be a stretch for him to practice to be able to do that tomorrow but as the week goes on, he'll be there.'
Dec 22, 04:53 PM Kansas City Chiefs WR Albert Wilson played 58 of the team's 66 offensive snaps in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he had five catches for a team-high 87 yards in the loss. He has emerged as the team's best receiving threat in recent weeks, and he has 12 catches for 209 yards in the last three contests.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson is really playing well and emerging in the offense but isn't a guy fantasy teams can trust just yet in this offense.
