The Kansas City Chiefs brought Priest Holmes along for the 2001 NFL season -- Dick Vermeil's first in KC -- and it paid off rather quickly for them as he became a force in the NFL and arguably the best back at the time as he scored touchdown after touchdown.
The mere mention of Holmes' name should have a Pavlovian effect on any longtime fantasy football player. After back-to-back mediocre seasons with Baltimore, Holmes became a stat-mongering force in the NFL. He had at least 2,100 yards rushing and receiving for three consecutive seasons with the Chiefs, scoring 10, 24 and then 27 touchdowns before injuries started to pile up. While Holmes was clearly talented, he also benefitted from running behind one of the great offensive lines of his time and took advantage of the wide-open nature of the Kansas City offense.
The numbers were staggering and then on top of that he did it by coming out of nowhere. He was a little known commodity on the Ravens that the Chiefs took a chance on and it paid off in a major way.
