The Chiefs have a brutal start to the season. The first two opponents are ranked #5 (BAL) and #6 (CLE) in Drafttek's power rankings. Week 3 brings the Chargers into Arrowhead - another upper echelon team at #13. Upcoming weeks have some "easier" tilts with three NFC East sides. Not your "grandfathers NFC East" from 2020, the Eagles, WFT and Giants play solid defense.

The good news is that Mahomes, Kelce and Hill are operating like a precision drill team, the bad news is that the Chiefs' defense can't seem to stop anyone. The Chiefs are allowing a league-worst 938 yards thru 2 games. On the ground, KC has surrendered 404 yards, an NFL-bottom by 79 yard over #31 Seattle. The Chiefs are surrendering 7.6 yards/play more than double the Bills (Week 5 opponent) 3.7. Derrick Henry (Week 7) is licking his chops already!

The pass-rush is lowest in the league with just 10 total pressures, and lowest in QB knockdowns with 6. So yes, be sure to include Justin Herbert-Keenan Allen stacks into your Draft Kings lineups this week and expect a 45-35ish final score (Chiefs Win!)

The Chiefs will look to the draft to help plug pass-rush deficiencies, adding South Carolina's Kingsley Enagbare in this week's mock.

CHIEFS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
