Analysis: Nothing of note here.
Never miss a local story.
Analysis: For you fantasy football guys, Andy Reid hinted Monday that Jamaal Charles is “getting closer” to a return. If that return does not happen this week, it appears Ware is primed to get most of the work as he picked up an eye-opening 71 percent of the snaps, compared to West’s 22 percent. Sherman continues to get more work (10 percent for the second straight week). Davis earned an offensive snap, but it’s glaring that he did not earn a single snap on special teams. His snap percentage on special teams has dropped from 10 percent, to 3 percent, to zero, as Tyreek Hill earned both kick-return attempts Sunday.
Analysis: Keep an eye on Wilson’s and Hill’s snaps. Notice how Wilson’s snap count has diminished over the last three weeks. Now, some of that had to do with the Chiefs’ reliance on three-wide in the season opener due to a 21-point deficit, but Hill made multiple appearances in those three-wide sets in Wilson’s place on Sunday, and this is something to watch going forward. Hill also ran multiple bubble screens and was the motion man on the fly sweep — which used to be De’Anthony Thomas’ role. Hill even showed terrific juice as a running back out of the backfield, running a sharp angle route for a 13-yard gain.
In short, it would be a mistake to think Hill won’t have a bigger role going forward; the Chiefs’ are already making regular efforts to get him the ball. Think about this; through three games, he’s already got 22 touches, including special teams. Wilson only has five so far.
Demarcus Robinson, who logged two snaps last week, did not play on offense.
Analysis: The Chiefs turned to their multiple tight end sets much more on Sunday, which is how Harris and Ross Travis earned more work than they did against the Texans.
The Chiefs also sprinkled in a super-rare four-tight end set — in “14” personnel (one back, four tight ends) — in the first half, which is how O’Shaughnessy got a snap.
Analysis: Devey, 28, made his 14th career start on Sunday. He got the nod in place of Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who was active but did not play.
