Making it short this week fans due to the disappointment I have for the horrible outcome from Sunday’s 31-3 beat down by the hapless Miami Dolphins. This loss is utterly embarrassing, period. The excuses are as horrible, saying that there wasn’t enough rest or time between Sunday and Monday’s emotional win. Well, all I know is that teams have been playing Monday Night Football for 30 years and it never seemed to be a problem before. The Chiefs practiced twice all week, not the schedule for success.
If anything can be learned from that disastrous lose it is that Dexter McCluster is straight useless. Not just in the fantasy football world, in the real football world. This offense suffers when he is on the field and he does nothing with the multiple touches he is given. He is not an asset to this team, he is a liability. Forget “Suck for Luck” let’s chant “Ex the Dex”.
Matt Cassel no longer has any fantasy value as he continues to lack consistency. Jackie Battle has been consistent, but still remains a #3 RB or flex option. Dwayne Bowe should still remain in your starting lineup and Steve Breaston could be a flex option. I would still stash Jonathan Baldwin on your bench for a while, but he isn’t worth a start this week.
Stay away from Ryan Succop and the Chiefs Defense/Special Teams.
