  Chiefs | Young WRs working with Jeremy Maclin    Wed Jun 29, 02:05 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin invited WR Chris Conley to work out with him at the team's training facility in the offseason. WR Albert Wilson joined them to lift weights, watch film and work on route concepts four days a week until the team's offseason workout program in mid-April. Conley and Wilson are the team's No. 2 and 3 receivers, and trying to hold off newcomers WR Rod Streater and WR Tyreek Hill.

Footballguys view: Conley is the player to watch here. We love his ability to crisply run the entire route tree. He's got the athleticism to get open with ease, and Conley has the speed to get by defenders quickly. Wilson is a fiery receiver who is built like a running back. No matter who emerges as the 2nd or 3rd WR in Kansas City, there will not be many fantasy points scored. Both Conley and Wilson are players to look at in dynasty leagues only at this time.

  Chiefs | Receiver depth still unsettled    Wed Jun 22, 04:43 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WRs Albert Wilson, Chris Conley, Rod Streater, De'Anthony Thomas and Tyreek Hill will all compete for playing time behind WR Jeremy Maclin. Head coach Andy Reid liked what he saw from Wilson and Conley during offseason workouts, though.

Footballguys view: Travis Kelce is really the #2 receiver for the Chiefs, or perhaps 2B with Jamaal Charles as a 2A. The team could pass more with Justin Houston possibly sidelined for a good part of the season, but any wide receiver other than Maclin would only amount to the fourth option in a somewhat conservative passing game. Conley could be a deep threat and he's an athletic freak, so he's the one to watch in deep dynasty leagues.

  Chiefs | Eric Berry could land big deal    Tue Jun 21, 01:43 PM

Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry has a reasonable chance to become the highest-paid safety and top Minnesota Vikings FS Harrison Smith's $51.25 million deal.

Footballguys view: Things have been a bit quiet on the Berry front. The two sides have until July 15th to work out a new long-term deal. Berry fought back from cancer and can continue to be an impact player for the Chiefs. His deal should start where Smith's deal is at. We'll know more about the likelihood of a new deal for Berry when the deadline gets much closer.

  Chiefs | Dee Ford dealing with tendonitis     Sat Jun 18, 08:07 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford (knee) is dealing with tendonitis in his knee, but he practiced Thursday, June 16, in a limited capacity.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs need to be careful here. Ford could be one of their primary pass-rushers in 2016. Linebacker Justin Houston is coming back from an ACL injury, and his status for the start of the regular season is up in the air. Tamba Hali is not quite the player he used to be and will likely play a more limited role this season. That means it's time for Ford to shine.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will not be rushed    Fri Jun 17, 07:38 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was able to participate in some drills during minicamp, but head coach Andy Reid said the team will not rush Charles back to the lineup.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs are being wisely cautious here. Charles is likely to be a RB1 for fantasy owners when healthy, but he's no longer a top-5 player at his position if Charcandrick West gets used a bit more. West proved last year that he can be dangerous with the rock in his hands, and there are rumblings that he's going to have a role on offense...even though Charles is going to be back. Charles has a current ADP of RB7 (2.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston to miss start of camp    Fri Jun 17, 07:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) will not be ready for the start of training camp because he is recovering from a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Houston's status for the start of the regular season is also up in the air. The team is going to limit him in training camp if he does actually get to practice. The hope is Houston is going to be eased in at the beginning of the regular season.

  Chiefs | Dee Ford bothered by knee    Thu Jun 16, 10:06 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford (knee) exited practice with a sore knee Wednesday, June 15.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs need to be cautious here. They already have LB Justin Houston returning from a knee injury, but his status for the start of the regular season is up in the air. Tamba Hali is not quite the same player as he used to be, and he's been missing minicamp with his own knee injury. We should see Hali play a smaller role in 2016, so the Chiefs really need Ford to get healthy, stay healthy and make an impact as a pass-rusher.

  Chiefs | Four roster moves made by Kansas City     Thu Jun 16, 06:06 PM

Kansas City Chiefs CB Bryce Cheek was waived Thursday, June 16. WR Kenny Cook (undisclosed) was waived/injured. Free-agents WR Seantavius Jones (Eagles) and SS Akeem Davis (Colts) were subsequently signed.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles may take part in minicamp    Sun Jun 12, 05:30 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may be able to participate in some drills during the mandatory minincamp, according to head coach Andy Reid. Charles has not participated in organized team activities because he is rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: If he does end up participating in minicamp, it will be on a very limited capacity. There's no need to rush him back and risk further injury. Charles should be 100 percent healthy (or close enough) by the start of the regular season. Fantasy owners need to recognize that the Chiefs will use Charcandrick West a bit more...even with Charles back as the starter. That dings Charles' fantasy value a bit, and it makes West a sure-fire handcuff.

  Chiefs | Cornerbacks hurting    Sat Jun 11, 03:58 PM

Kansas City Chiefs CB Phillip Gaines (knee) was given a day of rest Friday, June 10, as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. CBs D.J. White and Shannon Edwards left practice Friday, June 10, with strained hamstrings.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs have a great front seven, but their secondary has a couple of question marks. They need guys like Gaines to stay healthy and play well so their defense can stand strong in 2016.

  Chiefs | Charcandrick West still sick    Sat Jun 11, 03:54 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness) is making progress from an undisclosed illness, according to head coach Andy Reid, but he has missed four straight days of practice.

Footballguys view: West should be back in plenty of time for training camp. Fantasy owners need to recognize that West is going to play a role this year for the Chiefs...even with Jamaal Charles back healthy. West is an obvious and needed handcuff for any Charles owner.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston may be at minicamp    Sat Jun 11, 03:47 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) could be present for minicamp next week, although he probably won't practice, according to head coach Andy Reid. Houston is still recovering from surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Houston's status for Week 1 of the regular season is up in the air right now. The Chiefs need to be cautious with him, and Houston may end up having to start the season on the PUP list--forcing him out of the first six weeks of the regular season.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return soon    Sat Jun 11, 03:37 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) might participate in team drills during minicamp next week, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: The team is going to take it easy on Charles as he comes back from this injury. The plan is to have him ready for training camp and starting for Week 1 of the regular season. Charles may be more of a top-10 fantasy RB this year instead of a top-5 fantasy RB because of the emergence of Charcandrick West.

  Chiefs | Eric Berry skips workouts    Fri Jun 10, 09:53 PM

Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry skipped the voluntary workouts that wrapped up Friday, June 10, and it is unknown if he will show up for the three-day minicamp that begins Tuesday, June 14.

Footballguys view: Berry and the Chiefs have until July 15th to work out a new contract. He has not yet signed his franchise tender and is trying to negotiate a long-term extension.

  Chiefs | KC working on two-minute offense    Tue Jun 7, 01:35 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs have been working to improve their two-minute offense under head coach Andy Reid this offseason. 'We could be better there,' Reid said. 'Both sides of the ball, we could be better. It's about our working on it and we're doing that. We've got to capitalize on a few (more) situations there.' The Chiefs were one of the worst two-minute offenses in the league last year.

Footballguys view: How about letting QB Alex Smith air it out a bit more? Last year...and once again...Smith was the worst QB in the league when it comes to air-yards-per-target. He was tossing the ball a meager 6.32 yards on average, while the league average is 8.2 air yards per passing attempt.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't work until camp    Thu Jun 2, 01:53 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) made an appearance at practice Wednesday, June 1, wearing a jersey and shorts without a helmet. However, he did not practice, and he is not expected to participate in practice until training begins in July, at the earliest.

Footballguys view: We would be less concerned if Charles wasn't coming off his second ACL injury at 30 but even being worried about that won't stop us from feeling like he is RB1 material. It does put him in the lower half of that category, though. Fantasy owners need to note that the Chiefs are likely to use Charcandrick West in the offense--even if Charles is at full strength.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston may not start season    Tue May 31, 07:43 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) may not begin the regular season on the active roster, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Adam Teicher.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Houston should begin the season on the PUP list which would force him to miss the first six weeks of the regular season. After that point, the Chiefs would have three weeks to decide whether or not to activate Houston or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve. Houston is still recovering from surgery in February on his torn anterior cruciate ligament.

  Chiefs | Knile Davis willing to stay in KC    Thu May 26, 09:34 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis denies requesting a trade this offseason, but he said he looks forward to the opportunity to show what he can do on the field.

Footballguys view: Jamaal Charles is getting healthy while Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West got extensions, so if he did ask for a trade, we couldn't blame Davis. With that much talent ahead of him there's no point in having him on your roster this year.

  Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin suffers ankle injury    Thu May 26, 03:27 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (ankle) injured his ankle in practice Thursday, May 26, according to head coach Andy Reid. Reid said Maclin's injury is of no concern, though.

Footballguys view: They'll be careful with him, and we'll watch this for improvement or further problems, but we're not too worried. He should be a solid WR2 in fantasy this season.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles limited in OTAs    Thu May 19, 01:24 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be limited in organized team activities, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: They'll be cautious with him to make sure he's OK to go for the season and we see him as a borderline RB1/RB2 this year. After turning 30, we hope he can regain the form that had him lighting up fantasy leagues last season, but we aren't 100% sure it can happen. He remains a very productive and talented back.

  Chiefs | Chris Jones not expected to start    Tue May 10, 01:08 AM

Kansas City Chiefs DT Chris D. Jones is not expected to serve as an immediate starter along the defensive front, although that could change with a strong training camp and preseason.

Footballguys view: Jones has incredible strength at the point of attack. He can stuff the run, but he's also quick enough to get some push and interior pressure. The Chiefs have an outstanding starting front seven, and Jones gives them a strong rotational player as a rookie.

  Chiefs | Five draft picks locked up by KC    Fri May 6, 11:07 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs signed OL Parker Ehinger, QB Kevin Hogan, LB Dadi Nicolas, WR Demarcus Robinson and DB D.J. White to contracts Friday, May 6. Financial terms of the deals were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Hogan is an interesting developmental QB with toughness, moxie and strong leadership qualities. He needs a ton of mechanical work, but we like the Chiefs taking a chance on him. Robinson is incredibly fast and can fly by a defense. Big plays are old hat for Robinson, and he can flip the field in the blink of an eye. We'll see if he can finally play up to his potential after a career with the Florida Gators that was marred by four suspensions.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced they have signed undrafted free-agents C Ben Clarke (Hawaii) and CB Vernon Harris (Dartmouth) Friday, May 6.

Footballguys view: Harris is a tall/physical corner who is known as a sound tackler. If he doesn't make the 53-man roster with the Chiefs, he could at least make the practice squad. The Chiefs front seven on defense is set, but there are some questions marks throughout their secondary.

Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Fisher had the fifth-year option in his contract exercised Monday, May 2.

Footballguys view: The option is worth $11.9 million, but it's only guaranteed for injury so there's no guarantee that Fisher would make the Chiefs in 2017. The first-overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Fisher has struggled to be even an adequate starter.

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Mississippi State DT Chris D. Jones with the No. 37 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

  Chiefs | Knile Davis could be moved    Wed Apr 27, 08:24 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is being shopped to other teams.

Footballguys view: Davis had a few shining moments in the past and his size/speed combination is rare, but he lacks the vision to be more than a backup on his likely new team. If the Chiefs can't get a pick for him, he might get released with three running backs under contract ahead of him.

Free-agent WR Mike Williams (Bills) is signing a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, April 25, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Williams is a big/physical receiver, but injuries and off-field problems have made him bounce around the league since coming into the NFL as a fourth-round pick in 2010. The Chiefs are one of the most WR-needy teams in the league, so Williams is worth watching if he can regain the form he showed earlier in his career.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) was given assurances by doctors that he will play in 2016, according to general manager John Dorsey.

Footballguys view: Houston had surgery to repair an ACL/LCL injury earlier this year. It sounds like he's ahead in the recovery process and may be available to the team later in the season. When he returns, Houston is unlikely to be at full strength. Without Houston, we'll see Dee Ford get a larger role.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been running but isn't cutting in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. 'I'll be ready,' Charles said of being back out there for training camp. 'I can't wait.'

Footballguys view: Charles is going to be one of the best backs in the league again this year. However, his workload could be cut into by Charcandrick West. Fantasy owners need to recognize that West is too talented to be left on the sideline, and this will impact the fantasy value of both.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) said he probably won't participate in organized team activities, but he should be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Charles should be ready to go for training camp, and he'll once again be the lead back for the Chiefs. However, Charcandrick West is too talented to keep off the field. We'll see some sort of RBBC that features both RBs in 2016.

'Show me someone doing this seven weeks after full ACL and LCL surgery, and I'll show you God's work. I hope y'all watching,' Houston wrote.

Footballguys view: They need Houston back, so this is good news. It's going to be quite the horse race in the West this year, and defense will be a huge part of Kansas City's success or failure against the Broncos, Raiders and Chargers.
