Kansas City Chiefs: 2010 – 2011 Regular Season Schedule
The Chiefs have continued to add good talent on the field and in the coaching staff this offseason. Still, don’t be surprised if they land in the bottom of the AFC West this coming year.
Below we have the Chiefs 2010 -2011 regular season schedule for you to view as we inch closer to the beginning of the NFL season. We also have the fantasy relevant players for Kansas City, and a breakdown for all NFL teams in schedule strength in win/loss, against the pass, run and points.
Strength of Schedules
Some thought Jamaal Charles would be the next great fantasy back after his strong finish of the 2009 season. While Charles may still have a good season his fantasy value took a big hit once the team signed veteran Thomas Jones in March.
Look for Jones as a good bet to steal touchdowns away from Charles this season but as a tandem they should thrive. New offensive coordinator Charlie Weis should be able to mold this offense into a productive group.
Hopefully, the Chiefs can land a good tight end at this years’ draft to help Matt Cassel in the passing game. A good receiving tight end would fit well with Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers playing at receiver.
Defense Should Struggle Again
While the Chiefs’ defense did show signs of improvement in the final game of the year against the Broncos, it is hard to see them as a top twenty defense this year. Now in the second year of playing a three – four style defense, this young group of defenders should have a better idea of filling their role.
Look for this unit to improve under new coordinator Romeo Crennel, but they will still take its lumps along the way.
