On offense there isn’t a player that has looked better than Chase Daniel over the first two games of the preseason. While Daniel isn’t going to be creating a QB controversy anytime soon in KC he sure is making the most of his chance to show the league what he can do before he sits on the bench for the 2015 season. Daniel will more than likely get a chance to start next year or at least compete for the position. He isn’t going to put the team on his back and win you a game on his own but he has shown an ability to make throws even when he’s about to get hit hard. – Lock

Fred Williams had a great game against the Cardinals when he caught six passes for 82 yards and the first Chiefs WR TD since last preseason. He followed it up against the   Seahawks by catching two passes for 15 yards. Williams is a bubble player and needs to show more in the games than what he did against the Seahawks. His ability to get separation and give Daniel a chance to find him is impressive but he isn’t a great special teams’ player like Hammond is. Williams is trying to find a way to make it on the roster as the sixth receiver but with limited special teams value his offensive production has to be much greater. – Hopeful

After a busy week against the Cardinals in week one of the preseason Charcandrick West didn’t have as many plays that stood out against the Seahawks. 13 carries for 40 yards isn’t going to help him create a chance for repetitions with the starting offense instead of Knile Davis. West is going to make the Chiefs roster barring an amazing performance for the next two weeks by Spencer Ware and even then I think West sticks around. – Lock
