Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 16 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley caught three passes for 54 yards on five targets in the Chiefs loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. Conley saw the fourth most targets on the team, which has been consistent since he took over Sammy Watkins in the starting lineup. Conley was able to find room in the Seattle secondary that the other Chiefs receivers were not, as all of his catches went for longer than 13 yards. Conley's only blemish on the day came just before the half when he caught a 23 yard pass from Mahomes, but fumbled away the ball after trying to make a play. There was not much time on the clock, so the mistake was not as costly as it would have otherwise been, but Conley is competing for touches early in his career and any turnover is a troubling one for the young receiver, as he's had problems with drops in the past.
2018 Week 15 vs LAC (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley caught two of three targets for 13 yards in the Chiefs loss to the Chargers on Thursday night. Conley is in his fourth year in the NFL, and while he has played well previously in limited opportunities, he is having trouble gaining separation against #2 cornerbacks. The Chiefs have been scheming ways to get Conley opportunities in the red zone, using his 6'3 frame to box out defenders in short space. It worked well to start, but they have since gotten away from that and started using Demarcus Robinson more in that role. If Conley cannot produce in the red zone, he is not going to make much of an impact, as Hill, Kelce and the running backs are all going to come before him with respect to target volume.
2018 Week 14 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley caught two passes for 13 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over the Ravens. Conley was not a big part of the game plan, but it was also tough for the Chiefs to get anything going in the passing game in the second half. DeMarcus Robinson saw seven targets, but that was most due to the matchups that the Chiefs saw at that position. Conley is running as the #2 receiver behind Hill, and if Hill cannot go on Thursday, Conley will step in as the #1 receiver and have immediate value.
2018 Week 13 vs OAK (7 / 3 / 25 / 1 rec)
Chris Conley caught three passes for 25 yards and a touchdown on seven targets against the Raiders on Sunday. With Sammy Watkins still nursing an injury, and Hunt now out of the picture, Conley is on the radar as an every week flex option. Conley has seen 15 targets in his last two games, and turned that into 10 catches for 99 yards and three touchdowns. At 6'3, Conley gives the Chiefs an added dimension in the red zone, and they have been running plays specifically for him around the goal line. Conley's touchdown catch came with the Chiefs facing a third and goal at the Raiders two yard line. Mahomes took the snap out of shotgun, and Hill, who was lined up in the slot, immediately ducked underneath the coverage and ran to the left flat. Hill's route acted as a pick, allowing Conley to duck inside of him and be left wide open in the endzone for an easy touchdown catch.
2018 Week 11 vs LAR (8 / 7 / 74 / 2 rec)
Chris Conley caught seven passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets against the Rams on Monday night. This was Conley's best game as a professional by far, and he benefitted from the Rams trying to shade coverage on Hill and Kelce. Conley's first touchdown catch came with the Chiefs driving at the Rams nine yard line with :20 seconds left in the fist half. Mahomes took the snap in shotgun and rolled hard to his left as the Rams pass-rush was bearing down on him. Throwing against his body in an abbreviated manner, Mahomes was able to find Conley just over the goal line to tie the game up at 23 before the first half ended. Conley was mainly used in this manner, running routes underneath the Rams coverage while Kelce operated in the middle of the field, and Hill was running deep routes. He came up big, especially in the second half and was able to bail Mahomes out of trouble on more than one occasions. Conley's second touchdown catch came with the Chiefs at the Rams 10 yard line. Mahomes took the snap and Conley again was running a drag-route to the right sideline. The Rams were preoccupied in coverage and were unable to stop Conley from catching the pass and crossing the goal line for his second score, and the Chiefs final touchdown of the night.
