Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce practiced in full on Thursday


Travis Kelce is still in the concussion protocol but will most likely suit up on Sunday against the Steelers as he surprised everyone by participating in a full practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh has only allowed one touchdown this season and it was on a two yard reception by Adam Shaheen in Week 3.

Fantasy Goo: The Steelers haven’t faced a beast like Kelce, but he's gonna be a bit slower with this cloudy head. I just don’t like anyone in the Chiefs passing game to really wow us, so Kelce will get his.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Up & Down


Travis Kelce has been very up and down this season which also includes his targets (7, 10, 1). The Chiefs seem to use him at home more than on the road, which luckily means he should produce this week in Kansas City vs the seventh worst defense against fantasy TEs.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

The #FF Point Hunter


Kareem Hunt is an absolute madman and should be started in every fantasy platform possible. A home game against a Washington defense which allowed 25 FF points to Todd Gurley is another opportunity to lead all running backs as a rookie.

Alex Smith

Kansas City Chiefs

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Better days ahead for Kelce owners!


Kelce was the only quiet Chief last Thursday night, but should be able to at least match his Week 1 output at home against the Eagles. Jordan Reed collected five receptions for only 36 yards against Philly, but the Chiefs are a much better offense and it will be in Kansas City. Better weeks to come for Kelce owners.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Hill Streak Blues


Hill had rocket boosters on his feet against the Patriots and showed just what a weapon he can be. Hill should be started in all formats with his ability to return kicks, rush the ball, stretch the field, and take screen passes for long gains. Hopefully, he can stay healthy.

Alex Smith

Kansas City Chiefs

Will the real Alex Smith please stand up?!


Alex Smith absolutely balled out in Foxboro last Thursday. He utilized the un-matched speed of Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt to burn the Patriots secondary and lack of pass rush. The best thing to happen to Smith was the drafting of Patrick Mahomes, effectively forcing Smith to throw for more than 10 yards. Smith is now sniffing QB1 territory as long as his weapons can remain healthy.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

Story of the Day - Spray Painted Cleat Swagger


Coming off the 6th best fantasy game for a RB over the last 5 years, Sports Illustrated issued published a really cool article on Hunt's peewee coach who has held on to the spray painted baseball cleats that Kareem wore in a peewee game. A super interesting game Hunt played against Bears rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky.

Kareem Hunt in that peewee game ran for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns. Damn.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Hill Draws Butler In Coverage


Tyreek Hill is likely to be featured heavily in tonight's game versus the Patriots, especially if they find a way to shut down All-Pro TE Travis Kelce.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl. Hill should be started despite questions regarding the match up.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce To Get BB Treatment Tonight


Bill Belichick love to take away an opponents biggest offensive weapon. Here he has targeted Kelce on the Chiefs for tonight's game.

Fantasy Goo: This is obviously bad news for Kelce owners, most Kelce owners shouldn't and don't have backups rostered. Kelce still likely to be a TE1, but lower expectations.

Spencer Ware

Kansas City Chiefs

Ware Out for 2017


Ware has a torn PCL. You can play with that but also has damage to LCL and the KC medical staff thinks he probably needs season-ending surgery. KC is one of few medical staffs that are allowed to talk directly with reporters, creating transparency with all player injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Many analysts are saying that Hunt is now a third or fourth round pick, I’m not jumping into that feeding frenzy. I could see Hunt as a solid 5th or 6th rounder and will have him in the Ingram, Abdullah range. Add Charcandrick West and CJ Spiller to those late round flyer/watch-lists.

Kareem Hunt's preseason week 2 rendered him the nickname "cockroach" - he just doesn't go down. Excerpt from League Winners: “Pro Football Focus rated Hunt as the number one overall running back in this year’s draft class. Hunt generated 986 rushing yards after contact over his career and received the third highest FBS elusive rating in this class.”

Fantasy Goo: Hunt has an 8th round ADP and is a great candidate to break-out as a rookie. Ware may have bell-cow potential, but Hunt will almost certainly take over third-down/pass catching duties out of the backfield.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Fantasy Goo: Tyreek Hill played only 50% of the offensive snaps and expects a huge uptick. For those worried about Hill's special teams role eating into his offensive availability, Reid featured both DeSean Jackson and Brian Westbrook as primary returners with big offensive roles in Philly.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce practiced in full on Thursday


Travis Kelce is still in the concussion protocol but will most likely suit up on Sunday against the Steelers as he surprised everyone by participating in a full practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh has only allowed one touchdown this season and it was on a two yard reception by Adam Shaheen in Week 3.

Fantasy Goo: The Steelers haven’t faced a beast like Kelce, but he's gonna be a bit slower with this cloudy head. I just don’t like anyone in the Chiefs passing game to really wow us, so Kelce will get his.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Tyreek Hill is likely to be featured heavily in tonight's game versus the Patriots, especially if they find a way to shut down All-Pro TE Travis Kelce.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl. Hill should be started despite questions regarding the match up.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce practiced in full on Thursday


Travis Kelce is still in the concussion protocol but will most likely suit up on Sunday against the Steelers as he surprised everyone by participating in a full practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh has only allowed one touchdown this season and it was on a two yard reception by Adam Shaheen in Week 3.

Fantasy Goo: The Steelers haven’t faced a beast like Kelce, but he's gonna be a bit slower with this cloudy head. I just don’t like anyone in the Chiefs passing game to really wow us, so Kelce will get his.

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Kansas City Chiefs

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Hill Draws Butler In Coverage


Tyreek Hill is likely to be featured heavily in tonight's game versus the Patriots, especially if they find a way to shut down All-Pro TE Travis Kelce.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl. Hill should be started despite questions regarding the match up.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Tyreek Hill is likely to be featured heavily in tonight's game versus the Patriots, especially if they find a way to shut down All-Pro TE Travis Kelce.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl. Hill should be started despite questions regarding the match up.

There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Fantasy Goo: Tyreek Hill played only 50% of the offensive snaps and expects a huge uptick. For those worried about Hill's special teams role eating into his offensive availability, Reid featured both DeSean Jackson and Brian Westbrook as primary returners with big offensive roles in Philly.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

Travis Kelce is still in the concussion protocol but will most likely suit up on Sunday against the Steelers as he surprised everyone by participating in a full practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh has only allowed one touchdown this season and it was on a two yard reception by Adam Shaheen in Week 3.

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl. Hill should be started despite questions regarding the match up.

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road.

Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl. Hill should be started despite questions regarding the match up.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl.

Excerpt from League Winners: “Pro Football Focus rated Hunt as the number one overall running back in this year’s draft class. Hunt generated 986 rushing yards after contact over his career and received the third highest FBS elusive rating in this class.”

Fantasy Goo: Hunt has an 8th round ADP and is a great candidate to break-out as a rookie. Ware may have bell-cow potential, but Hunt will almost certainly take over third-down/pass catching duties out of the backfield.

Excerpt from League Winners: “Pro Football Focus rated Hunt as the number one overall running back in this year’s draft class. Hunt generated 986 rushing yards after contact over his career and received the third highest FBS elusive rating in this class.”

Fantasy Goo: Hunt has an 8th round ADP and is a great candidate to break-out as a rookie. Ware may have bell-cow potential, but Hunt will almost certainly take over third-down/pass catching duties out of the backfield.

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road.

Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns.

Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl.

Ware has a torn PCL. You can play with that but also has damage to LCL and the KC medical staff thinks he probably needs season-ending surgery. KC is one of few medical staffs that are allowed to talk directly with reporters, creating transparency with all player injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Many analysts are saying that Hunt is now a third or fourth round pick, I’m not jumping into that feeding frenzy. I could see Hunt as a solid 5th or 6th rounder and will have him in the Ingram, Abdullah range. Add Charcandrick West and CJ Spiller to those late round flyer/watch-lists.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

Hunt Impressive


Kareem Hunt's preseason week 2 rendered him the nickname "cockroach" - he just doesn't go down. Excerpt from League Winners: “Pro Football Focus rated Hunt as the number one overall running back in this year’s draft class. Hunt generated 986 rushing yards after contact over his career and received the third highest FBS elusive rating in this class.”

Fantasy Goo: Hunt has an 8th round ADP and is a great candidate to break-out as a rookie. Ware may have bell-cow potential, but Hunt will almost certainly take over third-down/pass catching duties out of the backfield.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

Travis Kelce is still in the concussion protocol but will most likely suit up on Sunday against the Steelers as he surprised everyone by participating in a full practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh has only allowed one touchdown this season and it was on a two yard reception by Adam Shaheen in Week 3.

Fantasy Goo: The Steelers haven’t faced a beast like Kelce, but he's gonna be a bit slower with this cloudy head. I just don’t like anyone in the Chiefs passing game to really wow us, so Kelce will get his.

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl.

Ware has a torn PCL. You can play with that but also has damage to LCL and the KC medical staff thinks he probably needs season-ending surgery. KC is one of few medical staffs that are allowed to talk directly with reporters, creating transparency with all player injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Many analysts are saying that Hunt is now a third or fourth round pick, I’m not jumping into that feeding frenzy. I could see Hunt as a solid 5th or 6th rounder and will have him in the Ingram, Abdullah range. Add Charcandrick West and CJ Spiller to those late round flyer/watch-lists.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

Hunt Impressive


Kareem Hunt's preseason week 2 rendered him the nickname "cockroach" - he just doesn't go down. Excerpt from League Winners: “Pro Football Focus rated Hunt as the number one overall running back in this year’s draft class. Hunt generated 986 rushing yards after contact over his career and received the third highest FBS elusive rating in this class.”

Fantasy Goo: Hunt has an 8th round ADP and is a great candidate to break-out as a rookie. Ware may have bell-cow potential, but Hunt will almost certainly take over third-down/pass catching duties out of the backfield.

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Travis Kelce is still in the concussion protocol but will most likely suit up on Sunday against the Steelers as he surprised everyone by participating in a full practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh has only allowed one touchdown this season and it was on a two yard reception by Adam Shaheen in Week 3.

King of Road Hill


Tyreek Hill is another up and down Chief player but unlike Kelce, Hill seems to perform better on the road. Washington has the third-best defense against wideouts which includes the outspoken defensive back, Josh Norman. Hill is a must-start WR2 even in tough matchups due to his extra touches in kick returns and rushing attempts.

Yards are coming back down...


Alex Smith still has not thrown an interception this season while amassing 774 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Each game has seen a decrease of around 100 passing yards as it looks like Smith is returning to his usual QB2 form. Kareem Hunt is taking all the pressure off Smith to produce so he can continue to be the game manager he’s always been. The Redskins haven’t allowed more than 19 FF points to QBs and I expect Smith to end up around that mark.

Fantasy Goo: Per PFF Hill has a -26% matchup versus Butler, but with blazing speed he could still have a huge impact. Butler has struggled this season, giving up two preseason TDs in limited work. It is also notable that Butler struggles against faster WRs - think back to Taylor Gabriel destroying Butler's ankles on a double move in the Super Bowl.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce To Get BB Treatment Tonight


Bill Belichick love to take away an opponents biggest offensive weapon. Here he has targeted Kelce on the Chiefs for tonight's game.

Fantasy Goo: This is obviously bad news for Kelce owners, most Kelce owners shouldn't and don't have backups rostered. Kelce still likely to be a TE1, but lower expectations.

Spencer Ware

Kansas City Chiefs

Ware Out for 2017


Ware has a torn PCL. You can play with that but also has damage to LCL and the KC medical staff thinks he probably needs season-ending surgery. KC is one of few medical staffs that are allowed to talk directly with reporters, creating transparency with all player injuries.

Fantasy Goo: Many analysts are saying that Hunt is now a third or fourth round pick, I’m not jumping into that feeding frenzy. I could see Hunt as a solid 5th or 6th rounder and will have him in the Ingram, Abdullah range. Add Charcandrick West and CJ Spiller to those late round flyer/watch-lists.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

Hunt Impressive


Kareem Hunt's preseason week 2 rendered him the nickname "cockroach" - he just doesn't go down. Excerpt from League Winners: “Pro Football Focus rated Hunt as the number one overall running back in this year’s draft class. Hunt generated 986 rushing yards after contact over his career and received the third highest FBS elusive rating in this class.”

Fantasy Goo: Hunt has an 8th round ADP and is a great candidate to break-out as a rookie. Ware may have bell-cow potential, but Hunt will almost certainly take over third-down/pass catching duties out of the backfield.

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Get Over Hill


“Most of those deep throws have been going Tyreek Hill’s way, and with good reason — the second-year pro has been the star of camp. He gives even the best corners fits with his speed — he’s gotten the Chiefs’ relentlessly-confident Marcus Peters a handful of times — and has caught many passes of the short and intermediate variety as well.”

Fantasy Goo: Based on Actual Opportunity, a Scott Barrett figure that measures expected fantasy points based on field position (and multiple other figures) Hill was expected to score 157.1 PPR points, instead he scored 219.6. Defenses will be adjusting to stop Hill, and these super-efficient stats are not sticky in a year over year basis, this screams regression! –Hartbeat

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

On the Hunt


There have been several reports, and/or comments about KC RB Kareem Hunt taking over the backfield in the past day. @ArrowheadPride writer Pete Sweeny states, “Starting to think Kareem Hunt could potentially work himself into RB1 this preseason. Increasing work with first team as time goes on.” About Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Adam Schefter said, “he's likely to be more valuable in the second half of the season.”

Fantasy Goo: I have no problem with the assumption that Hunt will have a rather large role in the offense by the end of the season, but the incumbent RB Spencer Ware isn’t just going to let a rookie take over the primary role. Ware was a very solid back last year that wore down after he suffered a concussion in week nine, and a ribs injury in week 14. Ware is the RB1 in KC and Hunt should carve himself a nice pass-catching 3rd down role.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce Knee Experiencing Swelling


Although Andy Reid has dismissed this as being a serious issue, you don't want to see this. Kelce is currently going as a top TE and this is largely due to his health compared to players such as Gronk and Reed.

Fantasy Goo: For now we can take Andy Reid's word on this, but if we see this as a persistent issue it could be time to lower our ratings on Kelce.

Tyreek Hype Train


Andy Smith has confirmed in the wake of the Jeremy Maclin release that Tyreek Hill will have the "first crack" at Maclin's former Z receiver position. Albert Wilson and Chris Conley were also mentioned as having a good handle on the position.

Fantasy Goo: Tyreek Hill played only 50% of the offensive snaps and expects a huge uptick. For those worried about Hill's special teams role eating into his offensive availability, Reid featured both DeSean Jackson and Brian Westbrook as primary returners with big offensive roles in Philly.

PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart

The PYRO Fantasy Football Depth Chart is a rundown of where Team PYRO projects the fantasy production for each team at each position. It is NOT an attempt to inform you of the current starters for each team. For example, we are well aware that Brandon Manumaleuna is currently the starting TE for the Chicago Bears, but if you look at the Bears Team Page, we have Greg Olsen listed at TE. Why? We’re projecting that Greg Olsen will be the most Fantasy Football relevant TE for the Bears this season. Since Olsen will be the Bears leading FF point scorer at TE, it’s his name at the top of the TE column on our PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart.

Kansas City Chiefs - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview

preseason review of kansas city chiefs for fantasy football


 


 


Kansas City Chiefs - 2014 Preseason #FF Preview


 


 


“Put your makeup on and do your hair up pretty, meet me tonight in (Kansas) city.” Alright, so that is not quite what Bruce Springsteen was singing (or Levon Helm of The Band :( RIP Levon). He had Atlantic City on his mind, but if you were to draw up a list of similarities between the two cities, you might have one – job opportunities in the mafia, and that’s about it. 


 


 


Differences between Atlantic City and Kansas City, however, are certainly distinct. One is bright and flashy, the other, well, is Kansas City. Just like the town, Alex Smith is a blue collar fella, nothing exciting. In fact, if you started him in a 12 team league last year, chances are every other quarter back did better. He ranked 13th amongst fantasy quarterbacks. He will continue to be a bye week fill-in at best. He is a tier VI or VII QB. Pyro ranks him as the #24 fantasy quarterback (as of 7/10/14) going into the 2014 season. Statistically, he is coming off his best year in the league. Last year, he passed for 3,313 yards, 23 touchdowns, and only threw 7 interceptions. All in all, he never had a 300 yard game. Perhaps he is most memorable for his fantasy playoff performance. In week 15, Smith single handedly knocked many a team out of the fantasy playoffs, as he threw five touchdowns. This was compounded if you also happened to be playing against Jamaal Charles, like this unfortunate author. Charles snagged 4 of his 7 receiving touchdowns and ran in for another on that fateful Sunday. Not that I hold any grudges, but if Alex Smith is reading this, a most vile pestilence upon you sir! Aside from that statistical anomaly, Smith just does not have the numbers to warrant a roster spot on your team. Last year, his average pass attempt was paltry 6.52 yards. He only made 508 pass attempts and that was his highest ever. The closest he has come to breaking 500 attempts before last year was in 2011 with 445. There just aren’t enough numbers to translate into fantasy relevance.


 




alex smith and chiefs sideline 


#11 is not a QB that you can really feel great about as a starter on a week-to-week basis


 




 


We rank Some Where Over the Dwayne Bowe (copyright Pyro®) as wide receiver #41 (as of 7/10/14). Some positives, he consistently gets over 100 targets, he rarely misses games. In six seasons, he has only missed nine games. He is the number one receiver on his offense. As far as the negatives, he only snags a little better than half of his targets (55%). Bowe is not a touchdown guy. The last three years, Bowe scored 5, 3, and 5 touchdowns respectively. Alex Smith, the Chief’s quarterback is not known for his aerial attack.  Bowe is a bye week fill in at best, and to be honest, he will not make any of my rosters.


 


 


somewhere over the dwayne bowe


A graphic from Pyro® Year 1 - d-Rx® invented this name... show me a place it was before Pyro®!?


 


 


 


Donnie Avery was only targeted 72 times by Alex Smith last year. Avery was able to snag 40 of those for 596 yards and 2 touchdowns. He only put up 4.39 fantasy points per game last year. Not much to see here, let's move on.


 




As far as tight ends go, there are 46 you could draft before you get to Anthony Fasano. Enough said. Dawgmaticå seems to like Kelce though, so I will keep my eye on that oft-injured fella'.


 


 


Jamaal Charles had a career year last year (see Career Year Beware!). Easily considered a number one draft pick by many, Pyro has him at number 4 as of today. Rarely does a player eclipse a career year in his next season in #FF. Although Charles will most likely not put up the same numbers, he is very dependable. Charles averaged 4.97 yards a carry. Amazingly, that was the lowest average of his career. Although his reputation suggests he is injury prone, that is just not the case. Take out the 2011 season where he was out after the 2nd game, in the 5 other  seasons he has played in the NFL, Charles has missed a total of 2 games. Looking at it that way, he is very reliable.  He ran for 12 Touchdowns, and caught an additional 7 last year. He amassed 1,980 all purpose yards (1287 rushing and 693 receiving). One thing to consider, last year the Chiefs had one of the easier schedules against the run last year. In 2014 however, things change. Charles will be going up against some heavy hitters as Kansas City has the 16 easiest schedule, right smack in the middle. For the fantasy playoffs, it is a bit harder, as they are rated with the 19th easiest rush schedule. If you buy the Pyro Draft Kit you can gain the acees to the Strength Of Schedule chart, which is one of 18 tabs in the document. His average yards per rush has gone down every year since 2011, and he has a lot of tread on his tires. He has amassed 1,043 carries in basically 5 years. In the last 2 years alone, he has racked up 544 carries in regular season play. That said, I certainly do not expect the cliff to come in 2014. Charles should be in the top 10, and has a good chance to end up in the top 5.

Defenses are generally not a focal point in fantasy football. Mainly, they are too hard to predict. Not only that, you aren’t just rating one player, you are rating 11 at the same time. Generally, I opt for a defense by committee approach. However, the Chiefs are a sturdy lot that come in at the number 3 ranked defense this year for Pyro in v2 of our Draft Kit. The nice thing about drafting a top defense early, you never have to worry about the position again. A draw back to playing defense by committee is you generally have to waste 2 roster spots on mediocre teams and play the match-ups. Here is the sneaky part: many of the douche canoe sites, you people know who you are, rank KC farther down the line, around the 8th or 9th best fantasy defense. Generally, they are going around spot 146 (ADP), somewhere in the 12th round for a 12 team league. I think drafting them in the 11th round would be a steal. If so, you would not have to worry about your D, nor would you need to draft a back up, except for their bye week, and that comes early at week 6.


 


 



 Scary good KC DEFENSE that you can get at a great value!

WHEN PRIEST BLESSED THE CHIEFS

The year was 2000, and the Baltimore Ravens had just won Super Bowl XXXV, but Priest Holmes was ready to leave the Ravens after four years. Holmes was never given the chance to truly succeed in Baltimore, and in 2001 he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Over the next three seasons Priest became the most dominating fantasy running back in the game.

Priest was undrafted in 1997 when he signed on with the Baltimore Ravens, and in 1998 he got his chance to be the lead back. Holmes was used sparingly during the first three games of the season as Jay Graham, the Ravens third round pick in 1997, was given the keys to the car. An injury ended his season, and opened the door for Priest. In week four against the Cincinnati Bengals Holmes made his first statement to the NFL. Priest carried the ball 27 times for 173 yards and two touchdowns. There was just something about those Bengals, because when they met again in week 11 Holmes upped the ante. Priest lit the Bengals defense up to the tune of 227 yards on 36 carries with a score. He finished the season with 1,008 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.  

Holmes was not able to make it through the entire 1999 season, and Erict Rhett ended up leading the Ravens rushing attack. Priest thought he would get his chance again in 2000, but Baltimore drafted Jamal Lewis with the fifth overall pick, which immediately made Holmes the backup. After an impressive rookie season by Lewis, Holmes was shopping for a new home, and he found one in Kansas City.

The Chiefs had struggled in 2000, and they hired Dick Vermeil to help turn the team around. Vermeil was known for the outstanding job he did a few years back with the St. Louis Rams and Marshall Faulk. The Chiefs roster was very weak at running back, with Tony Richardson, Kimball Anders and Frank Moreau as their leading carriers from the previous season. Vermeil saw the potential in Holmes, and the fact that he was hardly used by the Ravens allowed Kansas City to sign Priest at a bargain price, five years for $7.548 million. That would look like a real bargain as Holmes destroyed the league over the next three seasons.

Priest became the workhorse back for Vermeil in the Chiefs offense, and averaged 389 touches per year from 2001-2003. Holmes drew first blood in week three on the road in Washington. Priest torched the Redskins defense for 147 yards on 23 carries with two touchdowns, but he also added five catches for 78 yards and another touchdown. Holmes had seven games with 100 or more yards rushing, but had 11 games with over 100 yards rushing and receiving. #31 would finish the season with 1,555 rushing yards, which would lead the league, but he added 62 catches for 614 yards for an astounding 2,169 yards from scrimmage. Holmes had 10 touchdowns on the season, which most running backs would be happy with, but that did not satisfy him, so he went berserk over the next two years.

In 2002 Holmes would play in just 14 games, but he made the most of them. Priest had over 100 yards rushing in 9 games, while being held under 100 total yards just once on the entire season. The biggest difference in his game this year was his knack for scoring touchdowns. #31 hit pay dirt in 12 of 14 games on the season, and had two or more touchdowns in seven games.  The Priest blessed his fantasy owners with his final five games of the season. Holmes ran for over 100 yards in every game and had 707 rushing yards during the streak. While those numbers look great, they only paint half the picture, because Holmes was such a deadly receiver as well. His total yardage gained during this five game stretch was 934 yards, which is a staggering 186.8 yards per game. Let’s not forget that he was a touchdown machine, and had eight scores over those final five games. He finished the season with 1,615 rushing yards and 2,287 yards from scrimmage with a ridiculous 24 touchdowns in just 14 games. His fantasy owners loved him throughout the season, but missing week 15 likely cost his fantasy owners their championships that season. For all that disappointment, he would make it up and then some for those who drafted him in fantasy leagues the following year.

Priest entered the 2003 season with a huge target on his back, but was once again more than up to the challenge. Defenses were focusing their attention to slow down Holmes in the rushing game, and they were able to do that, as #31 only had three 100-yard rushing games on the season. Although, he would once again do a ton of damage as a receiver, and had over 100 yards from scrimmage in 13 of 16 games on the year. Priest continued to be a scoring demon and had 10 games with two touchdowns or more, but for the fantasy owners who he disappointed the season before he saved his best for last. Over the final five games of the season Holmes scored 12 touchdowns, and had at least two scores in each of those games, pure dominance. That mad touchdown run helped him set the record for most touchdowns scored in a season with 27. That record would go on to be broken by Shaun Alexander, and then LaDainian Tomlinson who now holds the record with 28 rushing scores. Priest finished the season with 2,110 yards from scrimmage to go along with those 27 scores. From 2002-2003 Priest scored a touchdown in 25 of 30 games, but had two or more scores in 17 of 30 games en route to his two-year 51-touchdown total.   

The following year Holmes was once again on track for a great year. Through the first eight games of the season Priest had 1,079 yards from scrimmage with 14 rushing scores and 15 total scores before an injury ended his season, and eventually his career after just two more seasons.

During this three-year span Holmes played in 46 games, had 1,166 touches for 6,566 yards and 61 touchdowns. That is an unfathomable average of 2,189 yards from scrimmage, with 20.3 scores per year. Another way to look at this dominance is to note that Holmes averaged 142.74 yards and 1.33 touchdowns every time he took the field. Priest had over 100 yards from scrimmage in 37 of those 46 games, and had at least 50 yards receiving in 20 of them.

Holmes was an absolute beast during this three year run, and it could have been so much more if his career had not been stopped short by a devastating injury. While his time in the spotlight was short, his light shined brighter than all others during this made run. The fans of the Kansas City Chiefs, and all of us football fans were blessed to be able watch Priest play.

CHRISTIAN OKOYE THE NIGERIAN NIGHTMARE

Christian Okoye was a running back that took the nation by storm in 1989. He was an amazing running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, and became known to the public as the “Nigerian Nightmare”. Okoye did not have long career with the Chiefs, but fans of the NFL will never forget him. Unfortunately he will always be linked to Denver Broncos safety Steve Atwater for the hit he delivered on Okoye on Monday September 17th, 1990.

Okoye grew up in Nigeria, and while there, never played American football. Christian played soccer, and competed in track and field. Okoye would attend Azusa Pacific University, and in 1982 he won the first of his seven National Titles in shot put, discuss and the hammer throw. Christian was an amazing athlete, but was still focused on track and field. In 1984 the Olympics were coming to Los Angeles, and Okoye wanted to compete for his country in track and field. While he had all the statistics necessary to make the team, he was omitted from Nigeria’s roster. This turned Okoye off from track and field, and he joined his college’s football team, even though he had never played the sport before.

Christian was a beast of a running back, standing at 6’1” tall and weighing close to 260 pounds. Okoye was able to dominate the defenses he faced in his three years playing for Azusa Pacific, and in turn was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 1987 NFL Draft. He was such a rare talent, and a perfect blend of size and speed. While he was 260 pounds, he still was a track athlete and had 4.40 speed in the 40-yard dash, which opened everyone’s eyes.

In his rookie season Christian only had 157 carries for 660 yards with three scores, but he also fumbled five times. That led to head coach Frank Gansz using Okoye less. In his second season Gansz only had #35 tote the ball 105, which translated into 473 yards, three scores and only one fumble. The Cheifs were 8-22-1 in those two seasons, and that ended the Frank Gansz era. New head coach Marty Schottenheimer came in and saw the potential in Okoye.

Scottenheimer knew that Christian had only been playing the game of football for a short period of time, and he did not have a fluid understanding of the offense. What he did have was an amazing combination of size and speed, and Marty wanted him to get the ball. In 1989 Christian got the ball 370 times, and ran for 1,480 yards and 12 scores while earning the nickname the Nigerian Nightmare.

The happy go lucky Okoye embraced the nickname, and became a nightmare for defenses to think about. He was still a raw player and did fumble eight times on the season, but Schottenheimer knew he was his best weapon, and he was going to keep going to him, unlike coach Gansz. During the 1989 season the Nightmare ran for over 100 yards in eight games, and had two others where he ran for 95 and 98 yards. The Nigerian Nightmare was the talk of the league, but that talk would not last long.

The following season, in week two, the Chiefs would face off against the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football in Denver. There was a lot of coverage of the Nigerian Nightmare by the ABC crew, but little did they know his nightmare would come that night in the form of Steve Atwater. 

The Nightmare was busting through a big hole in the offensive line, when Broncos safety Steve Atwater stepped in and lowered the boom on Okoye. Atwater had the perfect hitters stance, and drilled Okoye, knocking him three yards in the other direction. This was the first time that The Nigerian Nightmare had ever hit a defender and gone backward. It was also the end of Okoye causing nightmares for opposing defenses.

Following that game, Christian only had four more 100-yard rushing games in his career. He would rush for over 1,000 yards again in 1991, but his career would end after just one more season. After that hit, he was never the same runner, and he also continued to be plagued by fumbles, finishing his career with 27 of them.

The Nigerian Nightmare may have only lasted for a short period of time in the NFL, but that awesome season of 1989 will always be one to remember. Unfortunately, he will most likely be remembered for the shot he took from Atwater, but at least he will always be remembered.
