Chiefs | Marcus Mariota a fit in KC?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:53:46 -0700

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.

Chiefs | KC wants a bigger Travis Kelce

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:47:00 -0700

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.

Chiefs | Eric Kush to start at center

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:41:09 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said C Eric Kush will enter the 2015 season as the starting center. C Rodney Hudson was lost in free agency to the Oakland Raiders. "We drafted Kush and we said, 'Well, maybe in a year or two this guy has an opportunity to be a starter if he continues to progress' and now he has that opportunity," Reid said. "Not that we weren't going to try to sign Rodney back."

Chiefs | Travis Kelce studying Gonzo

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 11:09:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been studying former NFL TE Tony Gonzalez's game tape to creatively find ways to improve Kelce's game, focusing on the fundamentals in relation to instinctual play.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce recently reminded the public that he was not at 100% health in 2014 after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in November of 2013. The addition of WR Jeremy Maclin could cut into his work, but Kelce is a downfield threat in an offense that features the tight end position. Expect respectable numbers that place him in the TE1 conversation, but his best value will be found on FantasyScore given his erratic nature in season-long formats.

Chiefs | Jason Avant returns to KC

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 14:52:10 -0700

Free-agent WR Jason Avant has re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Avant likely will not have a starting role with the Chiefs but should have a role in the passing game. He could be an option in the later rounds of drafts or a waiver wire pickup during the season.

Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe released by Chiefs

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 19:59:44 -0700

Free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe was released by the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bowe's release was expected after the team signed Jeremy Maclin during free agency. His fantasy value moving forward will depend largely on where he ends up, but if he lands with a more prolific passing attack, he could be a solid WR3 in 2015.

Chiefs | Will release Dwayne Bowe

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 10:52:56 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is expected to be released Thursday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bowe probably should be considered a WR3 as he enters the free-agent market, but if he signs in the right situation, he could see increased value in 2015. This is a situation to monitor during the offseason.
