NFL Report Card: Kansas City Chiefs

Our NFL report card for the 2015-2016 season will be assigning a letter grade to each of the 32 teams and offering an explanation why that grade was chosen. After the evaluation, we will point out one specific area the team will need to address this off-season. Want some extra credit? Comment down below what grade YOU would give the team, and tell me on Twitter (@FantasyFlurry) your thoughts on the team’s report card for that day!


This season really was a tale of two halves for the Chiefs. They started the season 1-5, lost Jamaal Charles, and looked as though all hope was lost. Andy Reid was able to gather his players together, re-focus, and they somehow won their next eleven games (including playoffs). They were able to find a running game with two very different backs: Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. Alex Smith continued to be an efficient quarterback, and I’m sure he enjoyed the addition of Jeremy Maclin.



The Chiefs’ defense was a top-ten defense that was led by their linebackers. They all were involved in tackles and sacks constantly, and the secondary behind them was pretty solid as well. Rookie cornerback Marcus Peters had a league-high eight interceptions, and the inspirational comeback of Eric Berry was the story of the year.

Final Grade: B+


Biggest Off-Season Need?

The biggest thing the Chiefs needed to do this off-season was to keep as many of their defensive free agents as possible. They were able to retain Berry, Johnson, and Hali, but they lost highly coveted corner Sean Smith. With the loss of Smith, the Chiefs now must find someone to play opposite of Marcus Peters.
