2015 Fantasy Football Preview: Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs' offense runs through Jamaal Charles. That design skyrockets Charles' fantasy football value while hurting the rest of the team. The Chiefs have fewer viable fantasy players than most teams. However, TE Travis Kelce and WR Jeremy Maclin should be contributors in every league this season. 


Alex Smith

Smith doesn't have much upside, which means he shouldn't be drafted. However, he's a safe add during bye weeks. 

Running Back:

Jamaal Charles

He's absolutely worth a top three pick.

Knile Davis

Davis has played well in place of Charles, but is still stuck behind him. He doesn't get enough touches to merit playing unless something happens to Charles. If that happens, sign Davis as fast as possible. 

Wide Receiver:

Jeremy Maclin

Maclin had a monster year last season, but I don't expect him to match that this year. He's always had problems staying healthy and won't get the same number of targets in Kansas City. He's a flex for me. 

Tight End:

Travis Kelce

In a poor year for tight ends, Kelce is one of the more intriguing ones. Many expect him to take the next step after flashing potential last year. He was ninth among fantasy tight ends last season, and should finish higher this time. It's just a matter of how much higher.
