The Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West in 2010, and Matt Cassel, Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki had promising seasons. Entering the 2011 season, the offense was poised to make even more noise with Charles getting the bulk of the carries and with the addition of first-round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin.
Moeaki was entering his second season, Dwayne Bowe was under contract and the 2011 Chiefs felt good about their chances to win the division again. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, Moeaki and Charles both injured their ACLs and combined to miss 31 games. Cassel got through nine games, missing seven games after injuring his hand.
The wheels fell off last year, but time heals, and the Chiefs are hoping the lug nuts are a little tighter in 2012. If the Chiefs can stay healthy, there are several players who could be primed for breakout seasons, and fantasy owners shouldn't ignore the possibility of good fantasy value coming out of Kansas City.
