Dexter McCluster Finally Starts To Pay Off In Fantasy Football

Dexter McCluster was a hot topic during fantasy football drafting season.

↵

Is he a receiver? Running back? What's this about returning kicks and punts?

↵

It was thought the Chiefs were going to do just about everything with him.

↵

In the first two games, that couldn't have been further from the case. Other than a 94-yard punt return, McCluster was not a factor in the Chiefs offense.

↵

Against the 49ers, that all changed in one half of football.

↵

McCluster ended the first half against the 49ers with three receptions for 69 yards including a 31-yard touchdown. He also had a first down on a reverse in the first half.

↵

There's another whole half to go so I imagine he'll be adding to that total.
