Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford remains a work in progress on defense, after he was fooled badly on a rushing play in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers. The team isn't questioning Ford's character or toughness, but he's still learning what it takes to play outside linebacker in his first season in the NFL after spending all of his college years as a defensive end. Ford has just 32 of 318 possible snaps in the first five games, primarily as a pass rusher in obvious passing situations on third down. Ford doesn't have a tackle yet this year, but he has recorded a quarterback hit and a hurry. Ford also hasn't made much of a contribution on special teams.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was impressed by what he saw out of LB Dee Ford. "It's a new position for him," Reid said. "I think he's done a great job of jumping in the book and learning the drops, the things that you need to do with the pass coverage. That's not an easy thing with all the combination things that we do. I'm happy with what he's done there."

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Auburn OLB Dee Ford with the 23rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: He could be a fine sack artist down the road. KC's defense started out hot but petered out last year; Ford should give their pressure a new jolt that could give them similar top-10 worth in fake-football drafts.
