Chiefs | Alex Smith to remain starter

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 22:19:17 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith will remain the team's starter, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: There was a 100 percent guarantee Reid was going to say this, and he certainly means it... for now. Reid says rookie Patrick Mahomes will "come in and learn," but it's hard not to feel a nagging sense of deja vu to a time when a young quarterback named Colin Kaepernick backed up a title contender led by Smith. The veteran never had much fantasy appeal due to his dink-and-dunk nature, but even as your fantasy backup it's hard to generate much enthusiasm for Smith.

Chiefs | Kansas City selects Patrick Mahomes

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:21:10 -0700

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Mahomes should sit on the bench for a few years since he played in a spread offense during college and needs to learn an NFL offense. He will not have much value in most standard leagues but should be an option in keeper leagues because he has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the future.

Chiefs | C.J. Spiller back to old form?

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 11:19:00 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller has "that speed and twitch back", according to general manager John Dorsey.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller will turn 30 this summer and hasn't been a fantasy factor since 2013, bouncing around the league for much of the last two years. Perhaps he can push Charcandrick West for some snaps behind Spencer Ware in 2017, but it seems just as likely he won't make the team.

Chiefs | Cairo Santos inks tender

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 14:49:44 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs restricted free-agent PK Cairo Santos signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Santos has been one of the better kickers in the NFL the last two years. Kickers should be selected in the latest rounds of fantasy drafts, but Santos deserves to be one of the first kickers drafted.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West has lost weight

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 12:58:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West has lost 10 pounds this offseason but is as strong as he was last year. He is optimistic that he'll be able to be more explosive in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: West will likely back up Spencer Ware as long as Ware is healthy, although they could make up a formidable committee. West was a big help to Ware and the Chiefs with Jamaal Charles sidelined last season. He'll be one of the top handcuff options in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce not fully ready for camp

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 12:29:32 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is not expected to be completely healthy before the start of training camp, although he may participate in some light activities, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kelce underwent shoulder surgery earlier this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs may take it easy with their star tight end so as to not risky any aggravation. If he avoids any setbacks along the way, he should be full go before the regular season commences. Kelce deserves to be one of the first three tight ends drafted in 2017 after being the top scoring fantasy tight end last season.
