The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the biggest surprises in all the NFL last season, finishing with a 11-5 record in Andy Reid's first season. But will the success be short-lived for the Chiefs?
It's a good thing Chip Kelly has an offense designed to rack up a lot of points, because after two games it's clear that the Philadelphia Eagles secondary is a sieve when it comes to slowing down opposing aerial attacks.
Tight end is an intriguing position for the Kansas City Chiefs, considering the success that coach Andy Reid generated at the position during his tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles.
UPDATE: And right on queue, the Chiefs have traded Jon Baldwin to the Niners for fellow borderline bust A.J. Jenkins. Baldwin will get a chance to find a role with the Niners offense, a group that is in need of someone to step up, while Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham work their way back from injuries.
The Kansas City Chiefs WR corps was largely devoid of fantasy value in 2012, as they slogged through atrocious QB play and top option Dwayne Bowe struggled to stay healthy.
The Kansas City Chiefs survived a scare when starting running back Jamaal Charles suffered a foot injury Monday during practice. The injury has since been deemed minor.
UPDATE: Per Dave Skretta of the AP, it looks like Jamaal Charles got the best possible scenario after Monday's injury scare."Jamaal Charles has been seen by two orthopedics, everything checked out OK with foot.
Jamaal Charles put more than just a minor scare into the Kansas City Chiefs when he was forced to leave Monday's practice with what was being called a strained foot.
Four tight ends (Tyler Eifert, Zach Ertz, Gavin Escobar, Vance McDonald) came off the board before the Kansas City Chiefs selected Cincinnati's Travis Kelce in the third round, so it's not surprising that guys like Eifert and Ertz, in particular, are generating far more buzz than Kelce during the preseason.
We've mentioned a number of times this offseason how Jamaal Charles should see a hefty uptick in receptions under new coach Andy Reid, which will give him a nice bump in fantasy leagues that reward a point per reception.
Quite often the starting quarterback will play little, if any, in the first preseason game of the year (see: Tony Romo). However, that won't be the case for the Kansas City Chiefs, who will take advantage of their exhibition action against the New Orleans Saints on Friday to have new QB Alex Smith test drive new HC Andy Reid's offense in live action.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jon Baldwin stepped up his efforts to get in shape this offseason after seeing the fast-paced offense that new coach Andy Reid is installing.
UPDATE: Baltimore became the most likely landing spot for All-Pro fullback Vonta Leach once Miami removed itself from the equation. "The Ravens will probably have to wait a little while longer, but they've become the only logical destination for Leach's service," Shawn Brubaker of Yahoo!
Even though they were almost always trailing in 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs still finished among the top five offenses in running plays and the bottom five teams in passing plays.
Perhaps no fullback in modern times has received more attention than free agent Vonta Leach over the past several weeks following his release by the Baltimore Ravens.
