  Chiefs | De'Anthony Thomas impresses in return game    Mon Jul 28, 04:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB De'Anthony Thomas was compared to WR Devin Hester with his ability to make the first person miss in the return game, according to special teams coach Dave Toub.

Footballguys view: Thomas should be on the radar of return yardage league players. If he can combine return duties with a Dexter McCluster-esque role in the offense, he'll be a valuable RB in that format.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce not practicing    Sun Jul 27, 09:31 AM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Sunday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Kelce has a ton of talent, but he needs to stay healthy in order to play up to his potential. We'll see if this is just something minor. If healthy, Kelce could have value for your fantasy squad as a waiver wire player to watch.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been learning how to deep snap with backup snapper TE Sean McGrath (personal) sidelined. Kelce reportedly started a bit shaky, but P Dustin Colquitt said by the end of the drill, Kelce's snaps were right where they should have been.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe survives scare    Sat Jul 26, 01:59 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (ankle) was hit on the right ankle or foot area in a play at practice Friday, July 25. He got up limping, but did not leave the field. After practice Bowe indicated there were no problems.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs survived the scare too. Bowe is the only wide receiver from the Chiefs that fantasy owners should consider. If he's healthy and motivated, Bowe could be a nice WR3 this season.

  Chiefs | Sean McGrath absent    Fri Jul 25, 09:43 AM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Sean McGrath is absent from training camp Friday, July 25, and may be cut.

Footballguys view: ESPN's Adam Teicher has reported that McGrath is considering retirement. McGrath had the most passing yards among the tight ends last year though that amounted to a whopping 26 catches on 40 targets for 302 yards. So, not all that much. We'll watch this, but there really aren't any fantasy viable tight ends on the roster.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles receives contract extension    Wed Jul 23, 04:42 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has agreed to an undisclosed contract extension and is on his way to training camp, per sources.

Footballguys view: That was the shortest holdout in the history of the NFL. Charles was going to skip the start of camp because he wanted more money. The Chiefs quickly reacted and gave him a contract extension that locks him up for the next four years. Charles is now the second-highest paid running back in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson. Charles was scheduled to make $3.9 million in salary and bonuses this season, but now that number is $8.3 million in 2014.

  Chiefs | Ryan Harris agrees to terms    Wed Jul 23, 03:57 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with free-agent OT Ryan Harris (Texans).

Footballguys view: Harris is an athletic tackle who excels as a pass-blocker. He's battled injuries during his career, but gives the team nice veteran depth if healthy.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles not reporting    Wed Jul 23, 09:43 AM

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will not report to training camp Wednesday, July 23, barring a major contract breakthrough.

Footballguys view: Charles wants more money after an MVP-like season last year. He's massively underpaid as the 13th-highest paid running back in terms of annual average salary ($4.6 million).

  Chiefs | Justin Houston will report    Wed Jul 23, 08:20 AM

Kansas City Chiefs OLB Justin Houston will report to training camp and not hold out.

Footballguys view: Charles is holding out, but Houston is not. The team wants to find new deals for both, and Houston might be first since he's showing good faith by showing up. Houston is set to hit free agency next year. He only has a $1.6 million cap hit in 2014.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles is 14th highest-paid back    Tue Jul 22, 08:44 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is scheduled to earn $3.9 million this year, which ranks 14th among running backs. ESPN.com is reporting that Charles and the team are discussing a new contract.

Footballguys view: Adding in bonus money, Charles has a $5.2 million cap number in 2014. This actually makes him the 13th ranked RB in terms of average annual salary ($4.6 million).

  Chiefs | Team believes Jamaal Charles will report    Tue Jul 22, 08:28 PM

Updating a previous report, the Kansas City Chiefs believe RB Jamaal Charles will report to training camp Wednesday, July 23, whether a contract extension has been reached or not, a source told Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star.

Footballguys view: This conflicts with an earlier report from a Kansas City TV station. Charles is looking to make more money, and he feels underpaid at his current average annual salary of $4.6 million. At this time, the Chiefs have around $9 million in cap space. They are looking to get a deal done with Justin Houston in addition to Charles. We'll see if they can do some salary-cap gymnastics to get both paid.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles to hold out    Tue Jul 22, 07:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will not report to training camp, according to a source. Charles is reportedly holding out for more money.

Footballguys view: Huge news here. Charles is currently signed through 2015, and he has a $5.2 million cap number in 2014. He is the 13th ranked RB in terms of average annual salary ($4.6 million). Other sources are reporting that Charles is going to show up to camp on time, so we'll have to wait and see what actually happens here.

  Chiefs | Two likely to compete for one spot    Tue Jul 22, 09:10 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QBs Tyler Bray and Chase Daniel are likely to compete for one roster spot with QB Aaron Murray likely to make the team behind starting QB Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: A very interesting note here. Murray is smart and accurate even though he lacks size and athleticism. The rookie is coming back from the knee injury he suffered last year at Georgia, but reports say that he feels good. Bray has a rocket arm but little accuracy. Daniel has the most experience here, but it sounds like he's fighting for a roster spot. Most thought Daniel was a lock for QB2 in Kansas City with Murray and Bray fighting for the QB3 (developmental) spot.

  Chiefs | De'Anthony Thomas works mostly with RBs    Mon Jul 21, 01:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB De'Anthony Thomas spent most of his time with the running backs during practice Monday, July 21. Thomas run a lot of passing routes out of the backfield and motioned out of the back field at times during plays.

Footballguys view: The speedy rookie is listed as a running back, but he's more like Dexter McCluster used to be for the Chiefs--an offensive weapon. Thomas was drafted this year since McCluster left in free agency. We're not expecting much from the rookie this year, but we are intrigued by how his skill set will translate to the pro level. McCluster is not as fast, but he's quicker and a better runner in cramped space than Thomas was at Oregon.

  Chiefs | Several injuries practice    Mon Jul 21, 01:07 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee), WR Kyle Williams (knee), WR A.J. Jenkins (hamstring) and CB Christopher Owens (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, July 21.

Footballguys view: The team really likes Kelce, and he should be the starter at tight end if healthy this year. Kelce is tough and knows how to use his size in order to "box out" defenders. The Chiefs desperately need weapons in the passing game besides Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles. We'll see if Kelce can be that guy. Keep him as a low-end TE2 with upside or on your waiver wire speed dial this year.

  Chiefs | Aaron Murray says he is ready to go    Mon Jul 21, 01:06 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Aaron Murray (knee) said he will be fully able to participate once training camp practices begin.

Footballguys view: We're intrigued by Murray as a developmental prospect. He's smart and accurate, but Murray is not tall and lacks a rocket arm. His ultimate upside might only be that of a career backup. We'll see if he can beat out Tyler Bray for the third-string job in Kansas City.

  Chiefs | Two to PUP    Mon Jul 21, 12:09 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Joe McKnight (knee) and CB David Van Dyke (hamstring) were placed on the preseason Physically Unable to Perform list.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Joe McKnight (knee) had arthroscopic knee surgery after minicamp ended last month and is close to returning to practice.

  Chiefs | Aaron Murray still wearing brace    Sun Jul 20, 03:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Aaron Murray (knee) will continue to wear a brace on his knee while taking snaps in practice.

Footballguys view: Murray is coming back from an ACL injury he suffered last year at the University of Georgia. He's a smart and accurate quarterback who lacks size, arm strength and athleticism. Murray could be a quality backup in the NFL, but it's difficult to project him as anything more than that.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith hopes to get extension done    Thu Jul 17, 04:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said he hopes to get a contract extension done because he likes the team and coaching staff.

Footballguys view: Smith is in the final year of his contract, and the Chiefs will have to find the right price to keep him around. The veteran quarterback wants an annual salary around what Jay Cutler ($18 million annually) got from the Bears. Adam Teicher, Chiefs blogger for ESPN, believes the Chiefs only want to pay Smith around $15 million per year. The Chiefs would like to get something done before the start of the regular season, but they could always franchise tag Smith next offseason if they need to.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston could change mind on holdout    Thu Jul 17, 03:56 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston could still decide to hold out at the start of training camp if he does not receive a contract extension, according to a source. Houston is expected to report to camp on time at this point.

Footballguys view: If he skips any time in training camp, he'll be facing fines of $30,000 per day. He also must report to the team within 30 days of Week 1 to ensure he'll become a free agent in 2015.

  Chiefs | No offers to Justin Houston yet    Wed Jul 16, 01:13 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs have been talking with LB Justin Houston about a contract extension but have not made him an offer at this point, according to a source. The team could make an offer to Houston during training camp.

Footballguys view: Houston is due $1.4 million in 2014, and is in the final year of his contract. He skipped all offseason workouts--including mandatory minicamp--to express displeasure with his contract. If he skips any time in training camp, he'll be facing fines of $30,000 per day. He also must report to the team within 30 days of Week 1 to ensure he'll become a free agent in 2015. Sources indicate Houston will show up for the start of training camp, and the Chiefs could come to a new contract agreement with him at some point in the near future.

  Chiefs | Demetrius Harris carving out a role    Tue Jul 15, 11:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris looks like a player ready to contribute this season, according to head coach Andy Reid. Meanwhile, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com believes Harris could receive plenty of looks if TE Travis Kelce (knee) is unable to play or is limited.

Footballguys view: Harris is another basketball-to-football convert who is trying to make a name for himself in the NFL. Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2013 (and weighing only 225 pounds), Harris has added weight to his frame and now checks in at 257 pounds. At 6'7" he can certainly pluck passes "above the rim" and has been working hard to learn how to transition his basketball skill set to the football field. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring his progress in training camp and in the preseason.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe tuning up for camp    Mon Jul 14, 09:38 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe worked out with Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald Monday, July 14, during Fitzgerald's annual workouts at the University of Minnesota.

Footballguys view: So long as Dwayne Bowe cares, he can be a good fantasy play. Bowe has struggled with motivation at times during his career, but it sounds like that's not going to be a problem for him in 2014. The Chiefs need him in a bad way because they lack talent in the wide receiver corps behind Bowe. His current ADP is WR42 (9.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chiefs | Joe Mays top candidate to start at ILB    Sun Jul 13, 08:33 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Joe Mays appears to be the leading candidate to start at inside linebacker next to LB Derrick Johnson this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Mays is shot out of a cannon against the run, but he struggles in coverage. The veteran knows the division well from his days playing with the Denver Broncos, and he will help the Chiefs as a two-down thumper only.
