Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry (illness) is doing really well in his battle with Hodgkin lymphoma, according to his brother, Evan Berry. "He's doing really good," Evan Berry said. "I think he has three more treatments left. To be honest, I don't really see it affecting him. He's a very strong person, and he's continued to keep strong." Berry's disease is considered to be highly curable.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith's $10.9 million salary could be converted into a bonus to help the team create some salary cap space in 2015. That would create upwards of $8.2 million in salary cap room.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') and DE Mike DeVito (Achilles') are both pushing each other in their rehabs from torn Achilles' tendons. Both players also have a year left on their contracts. DeVito agreed to a pay cut that dropped his salary to $2.9 million. Johnson has a salary cap number of $5.2 million, and the Chiefs are only around $2.85 million under the 2015 cap. Kansas City could create more room by releasing Johnson, but the Chiefs are expected to hang onto him.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota would be a perfect fit for the Kansas City Chiefs and head coach Andy Reid, even if the team is committed to QB Alex Smith, in the opinion of NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. Kiper cites the success of former QB Donovan McNabb as Reid's quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, Mariota is expected to be gone when KC picks at 18 overall, and the Chiefs are unlikely to trade up to take him. Reid said he didn't have a chance to meet with Mariota, either.
Fantasy Tip: Mariota will be nothing more than a weak QB2 in traditional fantasy leagues in 2015, and that's if he winds up with a starting gig. Mariota may be better off used at FantasyScore if he starts at any point next year, with the right matchup, of course.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce played at roughly 250 pounds in 2014, but head coach Andy Reid wants Kelce to report bigger in 2015, and Reid thinks Kelce can pack on an extra 15 pounds without losing any of his speed or quickness. Kelce led the team in catches (67) and receiving yards (862) last season.
Fantasy Tip: Kelce wasn't fully healthy last year following a knee injury in 2013. He is a fine receiving tight end that might have some targets taken away with the addition of Jeremy Maclin, but he'll make for a decent low-end TE1 in traditional formats.
