The odds for Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford winning NFL defensive rookie of the year

Bovada has released some various odds on the 2014 NFL season, including defensive rookie of the year. KC Chiefs LB Dee Ford is tied for the 11th best odds to win the NFL defensive rookie of the year. Considering Ford is not a full-time player, it's hard to see him seriously competing for this award. I would move him up if he were a starter but as of now he is behind Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. Barring injury to either of those two, Ford won't play enough in the Chiefs subpackages to make a run at this. We shall see though. Obviously, Jadeveon Clowney is tops on this list followed by...

Kansas City Chiefs preseason first team defense: Bob Sutton's Science Lab

The Chiefs defense was awful this week against the Panthers, and there's cause for concern ... right? Not quite. Let me bust some of those myths. In the days following the Kansas City Chiefs' preseason loss against the Carolina Panthers, I read assessments from fans, pundits, and bloggers describing how bad the Chiefs will perform this season on the defensive side of the ball.  The most common thread seemed to be the lack of a serious pass rush this week, even with new addition Dee Ford.  So, instead of the usual post reviewing the performances of individual players, this week will be...

Someone has already predicted a Pro Bowl for Kansas City Chiefs' De'Anthony Thomas

Charles Davis and Daniel Jeremiah believes the Chiefs unearthed a gem in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Some rookies will undoubtedly surprise either as a boom or bust player. NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah and Charles Davis believe the Kansas City Chiefs have a boom prospect in running back / wide receiver / kick returner De'Anthony Thomas. The team's fourth round selection fell a bit further than some predicted after an electric all-around career at Oregon. Davis says his playing style should fit Andy Reid's offense perfectly in Kansas City. "Andy Reid can use him in so many...

Kansas City Chiefs best and worst fantasy football picks for Week 1

Finding the best fantasy football values for the Chiefs in Week 1. SB Nation has partnered with FanDuel, which is a daily and one-week fantasy game. It's like your regular fantasy football leagues in that you pick players to represent your team and they put up points based on their stats. Where it's different is that you're not drafting the players. You're starting with a given amount of money and purchasing the players based on their prices. It's like playing fantasy but with a salary cap and you can win money each week. As you know, manipulating the salary cap to find the best bargains...

Chiefs starters will play into second half vs. Vikings; Tyler Bray in after Alex Smith

The KC Chiefs starters will play into the second half in the third preseason game against the Vikings. After that, Tyler Bray will come in for Alex Smith as the second quarterback.

What would the Kansas City Chiefs really sell for?

What would the Kansas City Chiefs really sell for?

If the Chiefs were put up for sale tomorrow, how much would they sell for? Forbes annual valuations of NFL teams has determined the Kansas City Chiefs are worth $1.1 billion. That ranks 24th in the NFL, just ahead of the Arizona Cardinals (a mere $1 billion) and just behind the New Orleans Saints ($1.11 billion). That's what Forbes says they're worth. I have no idea how they arrive at those numbers. But what would the Chiefs actually sell for if they were put on the market tomorrow? For context, the Cleveland Browns sold for a reported $987 million two years ago. The Buffalo Bills are...

Will Kansas City Chiefs fans cheer or boo Matt Cassel in his return to Arrowhead?

Will Kansas City Chiefs fans cheer or boo Matt Cassel in his return to Arrowhead?

Matt Cassel's return to Arrowhead this weekend: Boos or cheers from Chiefs fans? The Kansas City Chiefs third preseason game will come against a familiar face. The game is against the Minnesota Vikings and the familiar face is one Matthew Brennan Cassel. As you know, the Chiefs traded for Cassel prior to the 2009 season. He was the starting quarterback in Kansas City for four years, starting 47 games and winning 19 of those. The Chiefs had more bad times (2009, 2011, 2012) than good times (2010) under Cassel. The Chiefs overall talent level during that time was weak compared to the rest of...

How young is too young for the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line?

The Kansas City Chiefs will have one of the youngest offensive lines next season. How do the youngest offensive lines usually do? We continue on with our Q&A with Football Outsiders' Scott Kacsmar. If you missed it, the first one was on Jamaal Charles' usage, the second one was on the Chiefs turnover ratio and the third one was Dee Ford's value as a Justin Houston or Tamba Hali replacement. Today's question is on a topic we have spent much time discussing lately -- the offensive line. The Chiefs are going to once again have one of the youngest offensive lines in the league. 25-year old...

Kansas City Chiefs 53-man roster and practice squad prediction (Nick Jacobs edition)

Nick Jacobs (@Jacobs71) is a producer at Time Warner Cable SportsChannel. His 53-man roster prediction for the Chiefs is here. QB (3) 1. Alex Smith 2. Tyler Bray 3. Chase Daniel IR with Designation to Return: Aaron Murray Aaron Murray will need time to develop. He's late with some throws and needs to work on his accuracy. He's still learning to read defenses. Meanwhile, Bray is another player that must be developed. He has a franchise caliber arm so he stays on the roster. Daniel is a good player for Bray to have in the quarterback room. HB (4) 1. Jamaal Charles 2. Knile Davis 3....

Chiefs maintain confidence in LT Eric Fisher

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Last season’s No. 1 overall pick of the NFL Draft is under the microscope. The attention isn’t because Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher has moved from right tackle to his natural position. Instead, the spotlight falls on Fisher’s recent preseason performances.

One projection not so high on Kansas City Chiefs' Dee Ford in 2014

If Justin Houston or Tamba Hali go down, can Dee Ford replace them this season? With the start of the 2014 football season comes the release of the Football Outsiders 2014 Almanac. In celebration of the Almanac, which is excellent, we talked with FO's Scott Kacsmar for a series of questions. The first one was on Jamaal Charles and which stats matter when evaluating his usage. The second one was on the chances the Chiefs have as outstanding of a turnover ratio as they did last year. FO Almanac: PDF | Amazon The third one is on the Chiefs pass rush, which disappeared at times last year...

Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry not practicing for Kansas City Chiefs

Injuries to Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry kept them out of Tuesday's KC Chiefs practice. The Kansas City Chiefs opened up the third week on the 2014 NFL preseason schedule with three rather important players not practicing. Among them is Dwayne Bowe, who has a quad injury, according to Chiefs Spin's Herbie Teope. Just last week, Andy Reid informed the media that Bowe's finger was "shot" but he continued to practice anyway. No word on when this new quad injury happened. It's only the midway point of the preseason so there is plenty of time if it's just a minor thing. Bowe is...

Not all bad: The good parts of the Kansas City Chiefs loss to the Carolina Panthers

Sometimes panic overwhelms the reality of what happened. When it comes to the Chiefs, that is the case after any play not resulting in six points. You are probably aware the Kansas City Chiefs lost last night. However, contrary to popular belief, the sky is not falling, the team is not about to go 5-11, and Derrick Johnson is not a bum who has lost the ability to tackle. Some stuff went wrong on Sunday including Eric Fisher, penalties out the wazoo and, well Eric Fisher. Still, a litany of things went right despite Eric Berry and Jamaal Charles sitting out of the contest. So let's take a...
