The Kansas City Chiefs have had some great weapons on offense throughout their storied history. Who have been some of the greatest ever?

Kansas City Chiefs fans have been fortunate to watch some great playmakers on offense over the years. From Pro Football Hall of Fame talents like Tony Gonzalez to a more recent name in 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs are no stranger to great offensive players.

This list will take the best offensive weapons ever, from all different eras of the game and dive into why they were such pains for opposing defenses.

I will say that due to how the game was decades ago versus how it is now, I couldn’t just go off of stats. I had to keep in mind how the game was played when that guy was in his prime and go from there.

So, who have been some of the most explosive weapons to ever don the red and white uniforms? Let’s take a look.


PR/KR/WR. (2000-06). 124. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Dante Hall. HM. player

Maybe this one needs an asterisk considering Dante Hall did most of his damage on special teams, but he was still an explosive weapon. Because he was a menace on special teams rather than on offense, this will be included as an honorable mention and not on the actual rankings.

Hall played for Kansas City from 2000 to 2006 after being a fifth-round pick in the 2000 NFL Draft. He became known as the “Human Joy Stick” and the “X-Factor” during his seven seasons as a Chief and was an absolute cheat code as a return man.

From 2002 to 2006, Hall had over 1,000 yards on kick returns with a career-high 1,718 in 2004. That’s a rarity in today’s NFL simply due to the kickoff rules changing, but Hall flourished with the different rules at the time. He took six kickoffs to the house and returned two punts the other way as well.

When it comes to explosive weapons in Chiefs history, Dante Hall needs to be mentioned, even if he did most of his damage as a return man and not on offense.
