Most every fantasy football league draft has been completed by this point, but if there are any fans left out there that might be drafting on Wednesday, I have a suggestion for you. Take a late round flier on Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel. I think Cassel could eclipse his 2010 season in Kansas City this season. In fact, I think Kansas City is one of the darkhorse teams this season, but that will be revealed later this afternoon.
Cassel receives a lot of criticism. This is not Kevin Kolb, Cassel has produced on the NFL platform in the past. He stepped in Week One for Tom Brady with the Patriots. He is just two seasons off a career year of 27 touchdown passes under the guidance of offensive coordinator Charlie Weis. Weis was a one year stop in Kansas City before he moved on and under Todd Haley in 2011, Cassel’s production suffered. In fact, the entire team suffered under Haley’s guidance. Offensively, the Chiefs struggled with injuries last season, especially on the offensive sid...

The Kansas City Chiefs brought in Peyton Hillis this off season and it is now clear why. The Chiefs depth chart has he and the incumbent Jamaal Charles both listed as starting running backs against the Falcons this Sunday. This shouldn’t worry Charles’ fantasy owners, as he is not a work horse type of back that was going to get 20+ carries on a consistent basis any way. But...
2011 was already a lost cause for the Chiefs by Week 15. Their head coach Todd Haley was fired and the injury roster read longer than a grocery list to feed an NFL O-line for a week. QB Matt Cassel, RB Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki, and DB Eric Berry were among the “main courses” that missed significant playing time and put quite a personnel dent in the Kansas City roster...
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers told the media today that he’ll know if he ready to this week by the time Sunday rolls around as he continues to recover from a heel injury.
Flowers: “If I’m out there on Sunday, then that means I’m ready to go. We’ll know game day.”

As of right now, it looks like Flowers...
The Kansas City Chiefs took a chance when they reeled in Peyton Hillis after the running back had one of the most bizarre seasons in NFL history in 2011.
The self-described “utility man” sat down and discussed his new environment, the coaching staff and his workout tools.

After suffering a torn ACL last season, Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry used poetry to get through the struggle of missing an entire season.
“I really leaned on my poetry and my writing throughout the whole process,” he said. “You do a lot of sitting up by yourself … a lot of looking at the ceiling. That’s what I did in my spare time between playing video games...
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The Chiefs' replacement for one of the NFL's most feared pass rushers this Sunday will be an unheralded veteran linebacker out of tiny Wheaton College.
It won't be the first time Andy Studebaker has started a game, but it'll surely be like none other: It's the season-opener against the Atlanta...
The Chiefs 2011 season was derailed early on by injuries to RB Jamaal Charles (blew out his ACL in week 2), TE Tony Moeaki and CB Eric Berry. KC added Peyton Hillis this offseason and both he and Charles will look to return to their fantasy beastliness of 2010. Reports have surfaced that the Chiefs intend to get the 1-2 backfield punch in upwards of 500 touches - which would give...

When I looked at the week 1 games a few months ago, this one stood out to me. There was a reason. I bet the Falcons as road favorites in Chicago week 1 last year and got burned as the Falcons proved that their struggles on the road were more important than their talent edge and lost pretty easily. Obviously...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer Tony Gonzalez took note of the first game as soon as the NFL schedule came out.
How could he not?
One of the greatest tight ends in NFL history spent much of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs, who just happen to be the opener Sunday for his current squad, the Atlanta Falcons. This is certainly...
