  Chiefs | Le'Veon Bell not interested in return    Sat Jun 12, 06:22 PM

Free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Chiefs) said he is not interested in playing for Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid again.

Footballguys view: We don't know exactly what made this relationship sour, but if Bell can't fit in on an Andy Reid team, then he might not find a place that interests him this year. He doesn't have a pulse in fantasy circles at this point.

  Chiefs | Kamalei Correa let go    Thu Jun 3, 04:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Kamalei Correa was released Thursday, June 3.

Footballguys view: Correa was once a second-round pick for the Ravens back in 2016, and he was a rare miss by Ozzie Newsome. He was traded to the Titans for a sixth round pick in 2018, and then last year the Titans traded him and a seventh round pick to the Jaguars for a sixth round pick. Correa left the team before the end of the season. The Chiefs signed him last month after the draft, but he only lasted less than a month.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes feeling good    Thu Jun 3, 03:09 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) said he believes he would be able to play now if it was the regular season.

Footballguys view: Previous reports state that Mahomes has been a full participant in practice. He'd be ready to go if he needed to play a game, and he'll be ready for full participation in training camp. After battling through a toe injury as the Chiefs made another Super Bowl run, it will be nice to see the superstar back at full strength.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes a full participant    Thu May 27, 06:49 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) has been a full participant during workouts this week, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Mahomes battled through the toe injury as the Chiefs made it to the Super Bowl. He was not himself in the big game but showed great toughness dealing with this painful injury. Reports came out about a month ago that Mahomes was ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason surgery. There is no doubt he will be ready to go at the start of training camp.

  Chiefs | Noah Gray brings flexibility    Fri May 21, 10:21 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Noah Gray lined up in multiple positions during rookie minicamp, including fullback. 'I think you don't just pigeonhole him as just a receiving tight end,' assistant personnel director Mike Bradway said. 'I think the guy's got some ability to be more than that. He is something different than we've had the last couple years.'

Footballguys view: Gray is an interesting prospect due to his landing spot. The Chiefs offense could bring out the best in him. Gray knows how to make difficult catches and can find the soft spot in a zone (he used to play high school quarterback so he knows where to be). He's not overly athletic and lacks burst. However, in this offense we will keep an eye on him in deeper dynasty formats.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes set for OTAs    Fri May 21, 02:03 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) remains ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason toe surgery and will participate in the Chiefs' OTAs, which begin Tuesday, May 25, according to a source. Mahomes will 'do some stuff' in OTAs, the source added, and should then be fully ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Mahomes was probably affected more by his toe injury than we know, but it sounds like we shouldn't worry at all about it affecting him in the 2021 season.

  Chiefs | KC adds Daurice Fountain    Mon May 17, 02:09 PM

Free-agent WR Daurice Fountain (Colts) signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, May 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fountain must have impressed during his tryout. He has electricity to his game but his pro career has been set back by injuries. In crazy deep dynasty formats we'll monitor him, especially since he's with the Chiefs.

  Chiefs | Daurice Fountain trying out    Fri May 14, 09:39 PM

Free-agent WR Daurice Fountain (Colts) is participating in the Kansas City Chiefs rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Fountain was a super deep sleeper when he joined the Colts a few years ago. However, injuries have derailed his career and took away most every chance he's had to impress. If healthy, Fountain can make plays but he's a long shot to make the Chiefs on this tryout.

  Chiefs | KC signs rest of draft class    Thu May 13, 07:29 PM

Kansas City Chiefs second-round draft choice C Creed Humphrey, fourth-round draft choice DE Joshua Kaindoh, fifth-round draft choice TE Noah Gray and fifth-round draft choice WR Cornell Powell signed four-year contracts with the Chiefs Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The player we are most interested in here is Powell. He may be a no.2 receiver for the Chiefs someday, a role that would have plenty of fantasy value. Powell has great ball skills and can track passes down field with ease. He needs to clean up his route running but the skill is there for him to be a no.2 in the league. Gray is a player we'll monitor in dynasty formats, and his skill set is that of an H-back/Tight End who can contribute as a receiver and as a blocker.

  Chiefs | Cornell Powell eyeing No. 2 gig?    Fri May 7, 10:42 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Cornell Powell had the second-highest win rate of any receiver in one-on-ones against press coverage during the Senior Bowl, according to Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus, and Renner believes that skill will translate quickly in the NFL and give Powell a chance to win the No. 2 receiver job as a rookie.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs could have gotten a solid future starter in Powell...in the fifth round! Powell is a Clemson wide receiver, and he was initially buried on the depth chart in college by several future NFL wideouts. As a senior, he flourished and showed why he was a Tigers recruit. Powell has great ball skills and can track passes down field with ease. He needs to clean up his route running but the skill is there for him to be a no.2 in the league. In THAT offense, he certainly has a ton of fantasy potential if he eventually wins that job.

  Chiefs | Chris Finke headed to Kansas City    Wed May 5, 02:43 PM

Free-agent WR Chris Finke reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday, May 5. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Finke originally came into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame last year, and he first signed with the 49ers. He's a gritty player who is tough over the middle as a slot receiver who earns his quarterback's trust. Finke also worked as the primary return man for the Fighting Irish which adds to his value with the Chiefs. He'll try to make the 53-man roster behind guys like Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson.

Footballguys view: McKinnon is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. He's battled with knee injuries during the last few years and is no lock to make the 53-man roster.

  Chiefs | Orlando Brown acquired by KC    Fri Apr 23, 03:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens OT Orlando Brown Jr. was acquired by the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, April 23, in exchange for a 2021 first-round draft choice, a 2021 third-round draft choice, a 2021 fourth-round draft choice and a 2022 fifth-round draft choice. The Chiefs will also receive a 2021 second-round draft choice and a 2022 sixth-round pick in the trade.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs have had a plan for their offensive line, and getting Brown settles their problem at left tackle. He's in the final year of his contract, so Kansas City should work diligently to sign him to a new deal.

  Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson aiming high    Thu Apr 8, 12:38 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson has his sights set on a big 2021 season with WR Sammy Watkins departure via free agency. 'Seeing what they saw in me for my role next year, and without Sammy being there, they said it'll pick up a lot more,' Robinson said during a Thursday, April 8, interview on NFL Network. 'And they got a lot of things in store for me. I'm ready to go back to work and see what they got going for me.'Every other season, it's (been) four, five touchdowns, 500 yards. ... I just think it picks up a little bit more right now. I'm looking for the opportunity -- not for them to give me the opportunity, but go in there and take the opportunity. Go in there and show that I am a guy who can put up 1,000 yards a year and 10 touchdowns. I'm ready to make that happen. They said they've got something in store for me. I'm ready to show them.'

Footballguys view: Robinson isn't as buried on the depth chart with Watkins leaving in free agency. He's got a ton of speed and can make a few opportunities turn into big plays. Fantasy GMs in dynasty formats should be rolling the dice on him in case he gets a larger opportunity and plays up to his potential.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (foot) was walking around Augusta National Golf Club Thursday, April 8, without a walking boot.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill leads the league with 10 touchdown catches from at least 30 yards out since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus. Teammate Mecole Hardman ranks third in the league with seven such receptions over that span.

Footballguys view: This is what happens when you have speed like Hill and Hardman, plus a quarterback like Patrick Mahomes who can buy time with his legs. The Chiefs also do a great job of scheming their vertical routes open to help create these big play opportunities.

Free-agent RB Elijah McGuire (Chiefs) and DT Jarran Reed (Seahawks) signed undisclosed contracts with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, March 31.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a decent all-purpose back who can thrive in space as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. With Damien Williams moving on (to the Bears), the team is adding more depth in the running back room. McGuire is no lock for the 53-man roster and will try to earn his spot with the team in training camp.
