Team number two on this fine Tuesday. If you are one of the Arrowhead faithful, make some noise!
Adam Filadelfo filed this report for you. He can be found on Twitter: @Frostt24.
For a team that was so dreadful in 2012, they had more Pro Bowl players
than any other team in the NFL. Too bad they didn't have as many fantasy
contributors on that team. With a new head coach and quarterback this
year, fantasy relevance may hit Kansas City.
Alex Smith - Say what you will about Alex Smith but he's clearly an
upgrade over what was previously there in KC. Alex Smith will never be
that quarterback with the cannon arm or throw for 300 yards and three
touchdowns but he is certainly a very capable backup fantasy
quarterback. With a quarterback friendly coach in Andy Reid, Alex should
have ago of year for both the Chiefs and his fantasy owners. He's
surrounded by playmakers and as long as he doesn't try to do too much,
he should have himself a quietly good year.
Jamaal Charles - The only negative ever said about Charles was he doesn't
score a lot of touchdowns. While that may not change under Andy Reid,
Charles cannot be ignored. He will have well over 1000 yards rushing
again and the receptions will only increase with the offense Reid runs.
There is no doubt Charles will prove his owners correct when he's
selected within the first handful of running backs.
Dwayne Bowe - After a disappointing season last year, Bowe will look to
rebound this year. He has a new head coach and quarterback to work with.
If Smith and Bowe can be on the same page, Bowe can be great fantasy
option. He has big play ability and his quarterback is capable of
getting him the ball. He's got upside as a wide receiver two if he can
play up to his ability.
Knile Davis - Davis is the clear cut handcuff to Charles and should be
considered by Charles owners with a late round pick. As with most
handcuffs in fantasy football, he's only got value to Charles owners.
While Charles is not injury prone, anything can happen on the field and
owners would be wise to insure their first round pick later in their
draft. Davis was drafted in the third round so obviously KC sees
potential here. While he's yet to play in a meaningful game at this
level, all indications are that this kid can play and wouldn't be the
worst selection late in drafts for Charles owners. If you don't own
Charles, don't waste a draft pick on the former Razorback.
