Fantasy Football: Chiefs Players to Watch


If you are one of the millions of players drafting, trading, sitting, starting and making sure your team is on the road to victory, you are not alone. As Sunday draws close you will find yourself tweaking your team to the best possible in order to stick it to the whatever team lies in the way of your victory.

For the Kansas City Chiefs there are a few players you should be aware of this week and some of which are posed to breakout from last week.

1. Jamaal Charles

Jamaal Charles had a productive game despite the injury that occurred. Don’t worry he has stated that he is ready to play this week against the visiting Cowboys. Last week his numbers were, 77 yards rushing, 23 receiving, and one touchdown, good for 15 points (ESPN standard scoring). This week despite, being a little banged, up look for him to continue to be a big part of this offense as they look to move the ball through both the air and on the ground.

2. Dwayne Bowe

If you are like me you got excited that Bowe would have an accurate quarterback throwing him the ball. This last week his numbers did not show excitement as he only caught four passes for 30 yards, and no touchdowns. With the Cowboys stacked on the defensive line, Bowe should get more involved in this game and he is still a solid number 2 to start in your league.

3. Alex Smith

Smith came as advertised to the Chiefs as he was efficient and accurate as the Chiefs beat the Jags. His numbers were decent as well, despite being so much ahead of Jacksonville. He was able to put up 173 yards, 2 touchdowns, for 16 points (ESPN Standard Scoring). The Cowboys get after the offensive line and Smith will look to move the ball through the air. If you are short on quarterbacks and you need a QB that will not make mistakes, grab Smith while he is still available.

4. Chiefs Defense

The Chiefs defense was in beast mode against the Jags as they produced 6 sacks, 2 interceptions, one of which was for a score and held them to only two points (29 points ESPN scoring) While Dallas is a much better offensive team this week, look for the Chiefs to be much of the same as they will get after Tony Romo who is known to make mistakes when pressured. I expect the defense to still be aggressive and create turnovers again Dallas.

This week the Chiefs look to continue to be effective on both sides of the ball, and the first home game of the year should help them in this one.
