  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.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes out of boot    Thu Apr 8, 11:11 AM

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

Footballguys view: Great news here. Mahomes toughed it out through most of the playoffs and he turned in a heroic performance during the Super Bowl. The Chiefs will manage him leading up to training camp and limit what he does to prevent any sort of setbacks.

  Chiefs | Big scoring plays common for KC receivers    Sun Apr 4, 11:05 PM

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.

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins has interest from the Chiefs in re-signing him.
