Chiefs could be lowly

Teams come out of nowhere and surprise in the NFL all the time, so I’m never floored when it happens. But when it comes to the 2007 Kansas City Chiefs, I think I’ll be floored if they manage to get just 9 or 10 wins and challenge for the playoffs, as they did last year.

They’re not going to have QB Trent Green on their roster, so forget about them getting strong play from the QB position over the long haul this year. I know veteran Damon Huard played well last year, but where has Huard been the last 10 years? Nowhere, that’s where. Huard could be something off a moot point anyway, since the team appears to be ready to give second year player Brodie Croyle every chance to win the starting job.

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
