Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 19 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Conley had a huge fourth down conversion on the fourth-quarter touchdown drive, and he also drew a long pass interference penalty earlier in the game. His most impactful play was a target inside the five on the late touchdown drive that was incomplete but resulted in a personal foul when Sean Davis made helmet-to-helmet contact on Conley. He was only targeted sporadically as the Chiefs offense failed to execute consistently for most of the game.
2016 Week 7 vs NO (2 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
The rangy receiver was not often the first read in Alex Smith's progressions, but nonetheless produced when called upon. Conley's toe-tapping earned the Chiefs offense a key first down in the fourth quarter, as he smartly dragged his second foot on a 3rd-and-17 sideline catch. The ball was late from Smith, but Conley did an excellent job adjusting on the fly. He showed good field awareness on a slant route against zone, cutting his route short and stopping to give his quarterback an easy completion.
2016 Week 6 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Conley played well when his number was called on Sunday, catching three passes for 26 yards on four targets. With Alex Smith spreading the ball around evenly among all of his receivers, Conley was just another target who did his job when called upon, but did nothing to stand out, either in a good way or a bad way. There is not much Conley can do, as he's not seeing enough targets to make a difference, and the looks he is getting, are coming in the short passing game where his main job is to catch the ball and try to beat his man to the first down marker. He will continue to have minimal production so as long as the Chiefs continue to be a run-first team.
2016 Week 4 vs PIT (7 / 6 / 70 / 0 rec)
Conley responded with his best game of the 2016 season, catching six passes for 70 yards on nine targets. Conley was targeted much more in the short passing game than in past weeks, and showed off good run after the catch ability, although it should be noted that he has not been able to break open any big plays. Conley's route running is improving, and a good example of this came on his longest play from scrimmage, a 17 yard gain on the Chiefs first drive. Conley ran a shallow slant route on the right hash mark, and instead of continuing his route across the middle, he read the coverage beautifully and settled into the open spot in zone coverage. Smith read the play similarly, and got the ball out to him quickly which allowed Conley to turn the ball upfield and gain 11 yards after the catch.
2016 Week 3 vs NYJ (5 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Conley played a small role, catching a handful of balls, mostly on slants. He's just one of many mouths to feed in a conservative pass offense.
2016 Week 2 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Conley came into the year with high expectations as the main compliment across from Jeremy Maclin. While he has not proven his coaches wrong for thrusting him into a complimentary role, he has not made any plays that would stand to separate himself from the other receivers looking for a shot in the Chiefs offense. This past Sunday was no different, as Conley caught two passes for 15 yards on four targets. It was not a banner day for the Chiefs offense, and it is not like Conley was given many chances to give the offense a boost. His best play was probably the tackle he made on Spencer Ware's fumble, which should tell you something about Conley, and the Chiefs offense as a whole. He remains one of the lower #2 wide receiver options in fantasy due to the propensity for Kansas City to involve their running backs and tight end in the passing game.
2016 Week 1 vs SD (7 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
The Chiefs do not have a clear number 2 wide receiver, but Conley did see 7 targets today catching 4 for 43 yards. The majority of the attempts went to Maclin, Kelce, and Ware. Each week we can expect a different receiver to see the targets until one can step up and separate themselves from the other. Conley is an interesting name to watch going forward as see if the volume of targets continues.
