Kansas City Chiefs: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2015

Before we can even begin to evaluate who is the Kansas City Chiefs’ player most likely to break out this season, we need to define two terms: “most likely” and “break out.” Let’s work backwards.

If being the LeBron of the league means being the face of the league, there’s no way Charles...
