The addition of Steve Breaston and first-round draft pick, Jonathan Baldwin, will work wonders on keeping the Chiefs' offense in high-gear.
Breaston came over from an Arizona Cardinals team that struggled mightily last season. When healthy, Breaston was productive, even though he had to deal with horrendous play from multiple different quarterbacks throwing him the ball.
Breaston played on an offense where Larry Fitzgerald couldn't even manage to get more than 90 receptions, while Breaston pulled in 47 in a fraction of the time.
Although Jonathan Baldwin is likely going to be out the rest of the preseason, he will be a major contributor during the regular season. Breaston will see time in both the slot and on the edge, but Baldwin's deep-threat ability will make Todd Haley constantly send Baldwin on go routes down the sideline, as Baldwin has the potential to be a touchdown catching machine.
It will be interesting to see how Baldwin does against top-flight competition and if his size and great hands will give him the advantage over other cornerbacks.
Breaston and Baldwin are both legitimate fantasy options. I would take Breaston, who will have a much better year than most experts are projecting, for the second receiver slot, while Baldwin might take some time to get going, he eventually will be good for the third slot.
Adding the two receivers will also positively effect Dwayne Bowe and Tony Moeaki's game as well. With a solid run game and two other receivers that can hurt defenses, Bowe and Moeaki will get many more open looks.
Moeaki is worth a look at starting if you want a tight end that you can pick up late in the draft and Bowe will be a nice pick for those who don't want to blow a second-round on one of the top names.
Fans will see more of Dexter McCluster, catching passes out of the backfield and in the slot to give the other receivers a rest. Everyone in Kansas City knows just how dangerous McCluster can be when he is on the field, but I wouldn't reach on McCluster. He is going to help spread the field, but his fantasy value, like last year, is next to none.
Matt Cassel is another great option for a late pick and you should be able to easily snag him as your backup quarterback. Cassell has been underrated considering all the weapons he has at his disposal.
If he can play smart, the Chiefs' passing game will improve and be atop the league as one of the great surprises on the 2011-2012 season. Even without Charlie Weis calling plays, the Chiefs' whole offense will have no problems moving the ball down the field
