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 players a legit chance at RB2 production. The favorable schedule and top 10 O-line should put this ground game over the top as they surpass the Texans as the most dangerous rushing attack leading fantasy teams deep into the playoffs.

Charles and Hillis named “starters”

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...

Chiefs turn to D-III player to replace Hali

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- 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 Falcons, and Studebaker will be taking the...

Atlanta Falcons at Kansas City Chiefs Week 1 NFL Pick

Atlanta Falcons (0-0) at Kansas City Chiefs (0-0) Buy tickets for this game 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...

Atlanta at Kansas City This game could turn into a thriller with Matty “Ice” Ryan threading the needle quite a bit to his two superstar wide receivers, Julio Jones and Roddy White. The Chiefs have a solid devastating as well in their backfield. Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis can move the chains in a variety of ways, and it is Matt Cassel’s job to take care of the ball and...
