  Chiefs | Darwin Thompson's role growing    Thu Aug 15, 09:20 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson has been receiving more first-team reps in recent practices, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Thompson could push Carlos Hyde off the roster if he continues to come on, along with Darrel Williams. This depth chart is still unsettled in a very valuable fantasy backfield.

  Chiefs | Darwin Thompson totals 51 yards in debut    Sun Aug 11, 01:48 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson carried five times for 22 yards and scored on his lone reception - a 29-yard catch - in the team's preseason opener versus the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Thompson showed enough to be considered a factor in the Chiefs backfield going forward. He might be the #3 back to open the season, but this has been a moving target with whiplash changes in pecking order under Andy Reid. The Chiefs backfield remains one of the most productive in the league no matter who they plug in.
