The Kansas City Chiefs will be a factor in many fantasy football leagues this week as they host the Tennessee Titans in what is championship day for many fantasy football leagues. The Chiefs have a few important fantasy football pieces playing today including QB Matt Cassel, RB Jamaal Charles and WR Dwayne Bowe.
Cassel is two and a half weeks removed from an appendectomy so he should be good to go. He had a solid day last week in football terms but in fantasy football terms it wasn't a great day. He'll be looking to exploit the Titans secondary if they cheat to stop the Chiefs running backs. Prediction: 190 yards, two touchdowns.
Charles enters the game as one of the NFL's best running backs and there's no reason to think that won't continue. This is a must-win game for the Chiefs so I would think they'd be sending out a full dose of Charles. On this cold day when the Chiefs want to control the line of scrimmage, look for Charles to have a solid day. Prediction: 20 carries, 125 yards.
Bowe has been shut down for a couple of weeks so the Chiefs should try to get him back on track. They'll have a hard time doing that with Cortland Finnegan lining up on Bowe. Don't expect much from him this week. Prediction: two catches, 34 yards.
That's about it for the big fantasy football names on the Chiefs.
