Fantasy Outlook: Chiefs vs. Giants

Hello Addicts! Before you set your final fantasy lineups for this weekend’s matchups, you should definitely consider more than a couple of players on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jamaal Charles

If you’re not starting Jamaal in your league, than you’re not doing it right. He is the only Chiefs player who has scored a touchdown in each of the first three games. Add that to reception yardage he’s racking up on top of his rushing yardage and he’s a consistent 20 to 25 points per game. You’re not going to get much better than that.

Chiefs D/ST

I drafted the Chiefs D in the second to the last or the last round in nearly every draft I did this season. Who’s laughing now? This defense has been playing lights out, and they’re going against a team this week in the New York Giants who allowed eight sacks against their quarterback last week. Add to that fact that Giants quarterback Eli Manning leads the league in interceptions makes the Chiefs “D” a great team to play if you have them. And, oh yeah, the special teams is due for a kick return any game now.

Dwayne Bowe

The .4 points Bowe got me last week hurt. It hurt a lot. Bowe hasn’t put up the fantasy numbers many expected from him at the beginning of the season. Unfortunately, WRs don’t get fantasy points for drawing double teams so the QB can throw it to the other receivers. Regardless, I’m starting him in all my leagues this week because the guy has to have a breakout game sooner or later. Here’s hoping it’s this week against the Giants.

Alex Smith

Who would have thought we’d be talking about Alex Smith in a fantasy piece? Yeah, me neither. But, right now he’s a better option than many previous fantasy all-stars like Roethlisberger. If you’ve got Peyton Manning, don’t start Alex over him. If you’ve got his little brother, Smith is probably your guy.

Donnie Avery

Avery is my sleeper pick this week. If you didn’t already have him and managed to pick him up on waivers this week, good job. I tried to snake him, but was beat out in a couple of leagues. As a starting WR, he’s not much of an option, but if you’re in a bigger league (12 team or 14 team) then he might fit well in your flex. He’s got more fantasy points this season than Mike Wallace, and that hurts. Grab him if you can.

That’s it for this week, Addicts. Here’s to hoping all your fantasy dreams come true tomorrow!

    I managed to clear the chiefs d and Avery in week one waivers! Loving it

  • Aaron

    The really neat thing for me is I drafted Avery, I just had that feeling and I didn’t get Bowe like I usually do.

  • Mark Bustamante

    I’m not only starting the Chiefs D and Bowe but also Succoup.

  • KcNdaRock

    I drafted chiefs d in the last round.. Like u said who’s laughing now lol.. I picked up Avery of waivers before the Philly game.. Lol and I’m sitting 3-0 like kc. Previos yrs I’ve sick cause I went with my loyality Peyton manning will never be on my roster..

    • BWrangler

      I also picked up the Chiefs D in the 2nd to last round and told my buddies that they’re cracking some skulls this year. Heh heh.

  • Jacob Crouse

    I had bowe but after he was getting less targets i picked avery up. Who do I start? Bowe or Avery!

    • Jim Harper

      Both. I am.

      • Jacob Crouse

        ahh I have Julio Jones (whos been my fantasy work horse thanks to MJD for not showing up) an Cecil Shorts is awesome in the garbage yards. But i feel like bowe is just due for a big game right?

        • Jacob Crouse

          League doesnt have a flex player either so its just 3 wideouts.

          • Jason Seibel

            Honestly, I’d go with Bowe and Avery over Shorts. But if you have to start one or the other, probably go with D Bowe. The guy is due.

          • Jacob Crouse

            Jaguars play the Colts, an I just don’t see both of the wideouts for KC putting up good fantasy numbers. Im going with my gut saying the Giants respect Avery and lift the double coverage over Bowe, opening up big plays for him. Sooooo my gut says Bowe. With Shorts, he is literally the jaguars only legit option right now recieving and if the game gets out of hand quick, bring on the junk yardage for Cecil.

    • BWrangler

      I think Bowe’s due.

  • Ryan Longstreth

    I am starting Alex, Jamaal, Justin Huston, ( we play a defensive player in my league), and I drafted the D as well and was made fun of for a couple weeks, I get the last laugh.

  • Jason J Morrison

    shoot, I drafted JC, Chiefs D, AS11, and was able to pick up Avery this week. I am lookin at making large points this week on my league.

  • Tanner Cobb

    I named my team “Jamaal Day Long” and I was very disappointed when he was drafted a few spots ahead of me. I traded Chris Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Hakeem Nicks to get him (from another Chiefs fan). Nobody’s laughing at me anymore lol. I picked up the Chiefs D/ST and was laughed at again for starting them. Guess who’s laughing now! This week I’m starting AS11 in place of Rodgers. Can’t wait for a nice win tomorrow!

  • Jim Harper

    Actually Avery is considered a solid pick as a starter this week by most of the experts and surprisingly Alex is doing well too in that regard. I also believe Bowe is due for a breakout game and this is probably his best chance to do just that.
