Trent Green dumps off to him a lot too, so he gets quite a few WRing touches (70 I believe last year). Also, Priest got sat a lot during last year. When the Cheifs would go up by 24 or so points against say for example Houston, Priest was taken out during the 3rd quarter (sometimes early 3rd) because he wasnt needed, and the coaching staff didn't feel like risking him.
This year the Chiefs have a substantially harder looking schedule. That should mean more close games, which means Priest will sit less and garner more yards as a result.
