Summary

The Chiefs No. 2 receiver in role, he's the No. 4 or 5 producer in the passing game's pecking order, depending on Spencer Ware's usage this year. Conley has excellent size and athletic ability and he increased his targets as a second-year pro from 31 to 69 and delivered a 44-catch, 530-yard season. However, he failed to score a touchdown during Jeremy Maclin's absence from the lineup. Conley has more big-play potential than his production suggests, but it will require a lot more trust from Alex Smith, whose style doesn't mesh well with rebounders on downfield throws. Conley is worth considering as a late-round pick because he has the tools and the opportunity to build on his early-career production, but that increase may only come from the misfortune of his teammates.

Chiefs | Cautiously optimistic about young WRs (Mon Jun 26, 08:24 PM) - Adam Teicher, from ESPN.com, reports the Kansas City Chiefs are cautiously optimistic about their young group of wide receivers in 2017. With the release of veteran Jeremy Maclin, the team has no wideouts over the age of 24. "We're going to be OK," coach Andy Reid said. "I'm happy with the improvement that they've made over this camp and even last year. Do we have work to do? Absolutely. We've got to get this training camp in. We've got to put the pads on and do it there."

Our View: Outside of Tyreek Hill, there's not a lot of fantasy value in the Chiefs WR corps. We'll be monitoring Chris Conley to see if he can get open better and stop dropping so many passes (4.5 percent drop rate). It's Hill and TE Travis Kelce who are the primary fantasy assets in Kansas City. Also -- every fantasy player needs to monitor which players show the best chemistry with rookie QB Patrick Mahomes. He's their eventual starter, and his favorite weapons (outside the 'big 2') might be available for cheap in dynasty leagues.

Chiefs | Andy Reid confident in offense (Tue Jun 20, 03:24 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley is just one piece of a young offensive group that has given head coach Andy Reid confidence despite the loss of Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin. 'We have a lot of talent right here to do whatever we need to do,' Reid said. Conley himself is ready to take on a leadership role. 'You have to be a good listener [in order to lead], and I got a lot of time being able to watch and listen, and I think that's the way you help these younger guys is you just pay attention,' Conley said.

Our View: Maclin had a poor 2016, so how much his departure really matters for this group is debatable. That said, getting the run game back on track and a third option to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill is critical. We don't expect Conley to be more than the fourth or fifth option in the passing offense, and Fantasy GMs seem to feel the same as his ADP is a very deep 271 overall.
