Kansas City Chiefs Watch List

Jamal Charles
The third round pick in this years draft for the Chiefs, has moved onto the waiver wire radar with the suspension of Larry Johnson. Now with the injury to Kolby Smith and Johnson still possibly facing further disciplinary action from the NFL in the off season, Charles has become a very viable low level keeper and a starter in leagues that allow some combination of three running backs.





Tyler Thigpen
The once third string quarterback, personifies the phrase “you’re one play away”. His performance in the last two weeks has moved into the ranks of fantasy back ups. He is not going to put up big time numbers, but he has shown that he is a good game manager, throwing for three touchdowns and no interceptions since returning as the starter in week 8. Add him if you have a health concern with your current starter.















Larry Johnson
May become the next Priest Holmes for keeper and dynasty owners. Those of you that rode Holmes to championships and then were burned by his rumored returns from injury still have that gaping hole in your line-up to remind you. Larry Johnson may be headed down the same path, but with his behavior. If you can find a trading partner, the time has come to try and unload Johnson, or risk him becoming the next Priest or Shaun Alexander.


Mark Bradley
Released by the Bears in week 4, has found a productive home in Kansas City. Putting up respectable numbers in his first two starts Kansas City has moved him onto a lot of owners radar’s. It seems that Herm Edwards is trying to come up with ways to get the former 2d round pick involved in the offense, he threw for a 37 yard touchdown to Thigpen last week. While not a player to displace a current starter on your roster, he is worth keeping an eye on for the next couple of weeks.
