Running Back

RB | Peyton Hillis | Kansas City Chiefs | Injury, Fantasy
The Kansas City Chiefs are built to run the football in 2012. During the offseason, their three major additions - OL Eric Winston, RB Peyton Hillis and TE Kevin Boss - were aimed at helping the running game. Hillis should give the team a strong balance to RB Jamaal Charles (knee). If the Chiefs are able to get the football in the hands of Charles and Hillis at least 500 times this year, it should lead to a successful season.

"He's bringing power, explosiveness, he's strong, he's going to catch the ball, he's got great hands. I feel he's an all-around player like me, so I feel like we can move the ball," Charles said of Hillis, while noting he believes the two will make a good combination. "When you have a guy in there that you know is just as good, if not a lot better than you are, that's really good too," Hillis said.
