The Chiefs have had some incredibly weapons on offense and it was hard to A) Narrow this list down to 15 guys and B) Rank those 15 guys!

Ultimately, Jamaal Charles landed at No. 1 because he was an absolute menace to opposing defenses. Some of the performances he put up would make people do a double-take.

That game in Oakland in 2013 where he had nearly 200 yards receiving (yes, receiving) with five total touchdowns (four receiving; again, yes, receiving) was a performance we’ll likely never see again, especially from a running back. Charles was simply incredible and deserved the top spot.

That being said, arguments could have been made for just about any guy on this list to be ranked No. 1. Tony Gonzalez is a Hall of Fame tight end and it’s a bummer he didn’t get to experience more success with the Chiefs. Not putting Priest Holmes No. 1 was tough too, as that guy was something else running with the football.

When it comes down to it, the Chiefs are truly lucky to have had so many explosive weapons on offense. Hopefully, more are on the horizon in the years to come!
