Pros: During his fourth disappointing season with the Chicago Bears, Bradley was released and scooped off waivers by KC on his way to registering a career-best 30 receptions. After being rarely used in his first Chiefs start, he ran off five consecutive PPR-friendly games: 23 receptions, 294 yards and three touchdowns. He grabbed at least four passes four times in red and gold. The Bears' 2005 second-round pick will probably remain a starter, too. The arrival of quarterback Matt Cassel and head coach Todd Haley's successful offensive prowess should open things up more. Bradley should see more targets now that tight end Tony Gonzalez has been released from purgatory.

Cons: He has a history of lower-body injuries and battled a calf problem last year. The Bears cut him while he was healthy, signifying that they were running out of patience. Sure, the Chiefs have all the patience in the world when it comes to their receivers, are there underlying attitude problems for Bradley? The departure of Gonzalez may give more defensive attention toward Bradley, even if he doesn't necessarily deserve it. It's hard to peg a ton of upside from half a season for a team desperate for receiver bodies.

Fantasy tip: While Bradley has an opportunity to step up his contribution, he hasn't provided such evidence he could do so in the past. He has been pegged as an underachiever throughout his whole career. It's tough to rely on him as anything more than a low-end No. 5, just for the unmet potential. Still, his 17th-round price tag won't ask for much of a commitment.
