Kansas City Chiefs: Ten players who must have big seasons in 2018
The Kansas City Chiefs are heading into an interesting 2018 season. Their offense has the potential to be one of the best in the NFL while the defense could be near the bottom. Who needs to have a big year?
After going 10-6 and winning the AFC West last year, the Kansas City Chiefs are in a unique spot. They have the ability to be a good team in 2018, but there’s a lot of “What if” scenarios.
For instance, the team has a lot of new, young players who could very well determine how this team’s season goes in 2018. Which ten members of the KC Chiefs need to have a good year in 2018? Let’s check out the list.
NUMBER 10: ERIC FISHER
Some might not think so, but left tackle is a pretty important position in the NFL. Offensive line play has diminished over the last few years, but it’s still vital in a team’s success.
If the offensive line isn’t good, then the quarterback has little chance to make an impact in the game. While Eric Fisher hasn’t necessarily been terrible during his career, he definitely hasn’t lived up to that number one overall pick hype that he received five years ago (seriously can’t believe it’s been that long already).
Fisher had a rough rookie season and bounced back decently in years two and three. Recently, however, he’s been a liability in some games and that’s never a good thing. The argument could certainly be made that had Fisher not been the first overall pick in 2013, he’d be with another team by now.
It’s important for Fisher to have a good year in 2018 because the “He was the first pick” excuse is starting to lose its luster.
