Chiefs: Chief concerns
Aug. 21, 2008


Despite coming off a disappointing 4-12 season, the Chiefs still have reason to be somewhat optimistic this year. Larry Johnson is back and healthy after missing the final eight games of '07 with a foot injury; sophomore Dwayne Bowe will be looking to improve on an impressive rookie season; and trusty veteran Tony Gonzalez has shown little sign of slowing down, even at 32.

But is that enough for fantasy owners to get excited about the Chiefs in '08? That all depends on your draft strategy. If you're stuck drafting in the late first round, L.J. could be a steal if he returns to his '06 form. If you ignore the run on elite receivers, Tony Gonzalez becomes a great option at TE in the fifth or sixth round. And if you place a premium on potential, Bowe will be there in the early middle rounds as a cheap No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

The truth is that the Chiefs fantasy contributors can be categorized as "fallback options." Johnson, Gonzalez and Bowe all have the talent to make owners very happy, but they lack the supporting cast needed to post truly outstanding numbers. As for the rest of the team, there's little else besides a handcuff for Johnson and a few uninspiring IDP options to attract fantasy interest in Kansas City.
