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.

Kelce Riding Hot Streak



Pyro's take: Our own Stagg Party has been on FIRE with a ranking accuracy in the top ten for the second consecutive week. And he is loving him some Travis Kelce tonight.

Fantasy Goo: The Raiders are in the bottom third versus TE's and Kelce has cemented himself in the top tier of available TE's.

Don't Count on Hill Tonight



Pyro's take: Tyreek Hill has surprised the fantasy world as an explosive gadget player with fantasy viability. However, don't expect Hill to have a big game in this one. Surprisingly, Hill has been more effective on the road than at home hauling in 38 of his 50 catches on the season.

Fantasy Goo: Averaging just over 2 catches in home games, with Jeremy Maclin trending towards returning, stay away from Hill in your playoff matchups and fade him in DFS.

Start of the Night



Pyro's take: In Week 6, when the Chiefs traveled to Oakland, Ware got 26 touches for 163 scrimmage yards and a score. This time the Raiders have to travel to KC for a frosty night of football against a healthier Chiefs defense.

Fantasy Goo: Look for KC to take the air out of the ball and hand the keys to Ware. He should be in line for 20+ touches which makes him a default RB1,

12/08/16, 12:25 PM CST by The Hartbeat

Maclin Inactive for week 13



Pyro's take: Because J-MAc is out, the fantasy pie just grows for the remaining Chiefs who will travel to Atlanta in Week 13. KC has a relatively low implied point total of just over 22.

Fantasy Goo: This is good news for Hill and Kelce owners. Atlanta is also without their best corner in Trufant. Hill is lethal from any part of the field, and Kelce's PPR floor has risen with the Maclin news.

No Maclin Make Conley Smash



Pyro's take: Maclin has officially been ruled out for week #11

Fantasy Goo: Without their number 1 WR, Conley rises to first on the depth chart. But, the big sell here is the 26 implied team points that Vegas has pegged on KC. Then there is the matchup. Conly will face Vernon Hargreaves III. According to PFF's rankings of CBs, Mr. Hargreavces comes in at 112 out of 117 graded corners. With that being said, Conley is 1 of my 2 "WhatchyouTalkinBoutWillis" play. That means, the player is within $500 dollars of the minimum price on Draft Kings. You are shooting for 3X value which is 9.9. Conley should get the targets and he has the matchup to easily give you double-digit production.

Maclin Sidelined Wednesday



Pyro's take: Maclin remains on the injury report as he DNP in Wednesday's practice. Keep monitoring his status up to Game Day.

Fantasy Goo: Tyreek Hill has stood out in Maclin's offense. Go pick him up as a possible flex play if Maclin remains out this week and for a potentially extended period of time.

Kelce in Nice Spot in Week 10



Pyro's take: Kelce should see an increase in targets without Maclin.

Fantasy Goo: With an increase in looks from Smith, Kelce makes for a nice play in Week #10 as he faces a Carolina defense that has allowed the 2nd most FF Points to the position over this season.

Maclin Out for Week 10



Pyro's take: Reid declared Maclin out Sunday.

Fantasy Goo: After his 2016 performance Maclin is a flex spot at best, if you have Maclin make sure to set your lineup before Sunday games start.

Both KC players are out



Pyro's take: With both Ware and Smith out, Charcandrick West is a huge chalk play in DFS at a very low price on all sites.

Fantasy Goo: Reid wants to run the ball and play D. Jacksonville has a schedule adjusted ranking of 24th against PPR backs.

JC on IR



Pyro's take: The Chiefs moved Jamaal to IR. Plus, Ware is going through concussion protocol.

Fantasy Goo: C West is a strong pickup off waivers. Even if Ware recovers for Week 9, without Charles in their future plans, West will have an increased role. This is power running game. In week 9, the have a powerfully positive game-script as they are home to the Jags and are 9 point favorites.

Smith owners missing his rushing



Pyro's take: Where oh where has Alex Smith's rushing gone? Double digit rushing yards in every game but 1 last season (17 of 18 games played, including playoffs), but just 1 time so far this season in 7 games.

Both KC Backs Suite Up Today - Spencer is Still My Man



Pyro's take: Both guys are playing. KC will look to run the ball and play D as they did last week.

Fantasy Goo: Coach Reid came out and said Jamaal was not ready for a larger load last week. Since then, he experienced swelling in the knee. Ware is just too good, and this team will want to rest Jamaal so they can have him in December. I have the utmost confidence in Ware today in a great RB matchup.

A Smith - My Streaming QB



Pyro's take: Andy Reid is 15-2 when coming off the bye, and Smith versus Oakland, in the last few years has approximately an 18 FF Point floor.

Fantasy Goo: Smith was available in 76% of NFL leagues as of Friday. Plus, he has a choice schedule the next few weeks.

Another Start for Spencer Ware?

Andy Reid hinted Monday that Jamaal Charles is “getting closer” to a return.

Pyro's take: Andy Reid hinted Monday that Jamaal Charles is “getting closer” to a return. If that return does not happen this week, it appears Ware is primed to get most of the work as he picked up an eye-opening 71 percent of the snaps, compared to West’s 22 percent.

Fantasy Goo: Woohoo! Celebrate my Spencer Ware pals out there. We may have yet another week to steal playing time from Jamaal Charles. Simply watch the news reports closely and cross your fingers. Spencer has been very rewarding to his owners who spent a very late pick or snagged him early from the wire.

Charles Getting Closer

JC

Pyro's take: Coach Andy Reid had this to say regarding the possibility of Jamaal Charles returning to action for the week 4 game versus the Steelers: “We’ll see — he’s getting closer here,” Reid said. “We’ve probably been overly cautious, but there’s a chance he’s out there this week. We’ll see how it goes.”.

Fantasy goo: While this isn't exactly overly optimistic, owners have to be salivating at the thought of Charles returning (even in limited action) versus the Steelers. Pittsburgh has been atrocious against pass catching running backs this season, having allowed Giovani Bernard and Darren Sproles both monster receiving games out of the backfield. Charles has never been workload dependent so if he's active he should be started in the opinion of this writer.

Jamall Out Again for Week 2

d

Pyro's take: Jamaal is out again in Week #2

Fantasy Goo: Even though Ware and West had a divided work load in week #1, Ware was the man. In the end, he was the 2nd highest scoring PPR back last week. His play should garner him more touches this week. The bottom line is the man is damn good.

Ware expected to Start Week 2

@Edwerderespn #Chiefs could give Jamaal Charles, recovering from ACL surgery, another week, per source.

Pyro's take: @Edwerderespn #Chiefs could give Jamaal Charles, recovering from ACL surgery, another week, per source. He's least healthy of 4 RB, esp Spencer Ware.

Fantasy Goo: Spencer Ware was a magnificent contributor for week 1. Charcandrick West had as many plays on the field but, Ware was the dominator. Jamaal Charles will probably sit week 2 so the team can see what Ware and West can do without Charles in there and so Charles can further heal. Once Charles does come back the distribution of carries will be tough to call. Charles will have to be himself again to fend off Spencer Ware who is hungry.

Looking Like It's Kansas City By Committee In Chiefs Backfield In Week One

Kansas City Chiefs

Pyro's take: Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told the media that the team will employ a by "committee" approach to their running game in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers. Charcandrick West is listed as Kansas City's No. 2 back on the depth Chart behind Jamaal Charles (knee) who is doubtful to play, ahead of Spencer Ware, who is the favorite to start the contest and rounded off by Knile Davis. “Yeah, they’ll all play,” Reid said via KansasCity.com. “We’ll roll them in.” When asked if Ware would be the "first guy" on Sunday, Reid replied, “you could probably say that, yeah, but it depends on the personnel group so don’t hold me accountable."


Fantasy Goo: Week 1 approaches, it appears that Charles will not play against the Chargers. According to Andy Reid's words, it's looking like Ware will earn the start in the contest, but West and Davis will both garner touches in the season opener as well. For fantasy football purposes, this could be a difficult backfield to decipher. Ware should be considered the safer start in a favorable matchup against San Diego, however, don't sleep on West's value especially in PPR scoring formats.

Is there more to read into for Charles not ready to be in charge?

BJ KisselVerified account ‏@ChiefsReporter "I think it's a stretch for him to play on Sunday." ~ Andy Reid on RB Jamaal Charles.

Pyro's take: BJ KisselVerified account ‏@ChiefsReporter "I think it's a stretch for him to play on Sunday." ~ Andy Reid on RB Jamaal Charles.

Fantasy Goo: On December 11th of last year Jamaal Charles tore the ACL in his right knee during a Week 5 loss to Chicago which was the second season-ending knee injury of his eight-year NFL career. Personally, I believe that if Charles is not ready for week 1 that there may be little chance he is ready for week 2. He had all off season to be ready for week 1 and failed to be ready to roll. When Andy Reid is ready to put Charles in I would guess it would be slowly and a part of a stinky RBBC. If Spencer Ware comes out guns a blazing then Jamaal will have to produce ASAP. There may be a good bet to be made for Spencer Ware being the guy for 3 or 4 weeks. You must pick Spencer Ware off your waiver wire if you need any help at RB. Charcandrick West would need Spencer Ware to miss time to have value any time soon.

Rod Streator Traded To San Francisco

The Kansas City Chiefs

Pyro's take: The Kansas City Chiefs have traded WR Rod Streater and an undisclosed draft pick to the San Francisco 49ers for an undisclosed draft pick on Saturday.


Fantasy Goo: 49ers needed wide receiver help after losing Bruce Ellington for the year earlier in the preseason and traded for Streater on Saturday. Streater is expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver spot on the depth chart with the recently acquired Jeremy Kerley.
