Who To Sit

Chris Conley – Wide Receiver

The Kansas City Chiefs have promoted second year receiver Chris Conley to the #2 position on the wide receiver depth chart.  However, you should expect some growing pains and a learning curve here.  Conley is a guy to watch on the waiver wires, but don’t bother stashing him on your bench just yet.  Wait and see if he picks up on things early on or not.

Charcandrick West – Running Back

The Chiefs top backup running back in 2015 is a hot commodity handcuff in 2016.  He shouldn’t be as Spencer Ware got most of the starting snaps in preseason even before West injured his elbow.  Keep him in mind as the season wears on, but this is the wrong backup running back to stash on your roster for now.

Jamaal Charles – Running Back

Eventually, Jamaal Charles will probably be the best Chiefs fantasy player for 2016.  However, he is still coming back from a knee injury and will take some time to get back up to speed.  Even when he is healthy, don’t be surprised if Spencer Ware poaches a lot of the short range touchdowns.  Keep Charles on your roster, but don’t be too reliant on him.

The Kansas City Chiefs should handle the San Diego Chargers pretty easily this week.  Expect most of the work to be done on the ground, and that’s why Spencer Ware is your top play.  The Chiefs Defense and Special Teams should also net some points as they simply outclass the Chargers.  Don’t go overboard on playing Chiefs.  They can score, but the gameplan will be the key.
