Kansas City Chiefs Depth Chart 2019 Chiefs Depth Chart

5-2, 1st AFC West

vs GB

12:20 am GMT, 10/28

The Chiefs, led by the young Pat Mahomes, were one of the most fun teams to watch in football last year. In Mahomes' first year as a starter, he threw for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns, which was enough for him to be donned league MVP. When you have a star quarterback who's still on a rookie contract, it means there's money to go around for the rest of the roster. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill are two notable weapons that the Chiefs used to a great extent last year. Their defense was probably what held them back the most, and this year they'll hope it can improve.

What does the depth at the WR position look like for the Chiefs this year?

Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins will be the starting outside receivers for the Chiefs this year. Hill had 87 receptions last year for 1,479 yards, putting up 12 TDs along the way. Sammy Watkins, whose year was cut short due to injury, had 40 receptions on 50 targets and 3 TD catches. The two of them make up arguably one of the strongest WR duos in the game. In the slot will be Mecole Hardman, who the Chiefs took in the second round of the draft this year out of Georgia. Some notable depth behind this front line of receivers is Demarcus Robinson and Gehrig Dieter. Robinson was utilized to a small extent last year, putting up 22 receptions on 33 targets. Dieter was targeted just 3 times last year, but we could see his name pop up if someone were to go down with an injury.

How does the depth look on the defensive line this year for the Chiefs?

The defense, as mentioned before, was a weak point for the otherwise elite Chiefs. The way things are stacked up right now, the defensive line should be good, at least on paper. The line is headlined by right defensive end Frank Clark who picked up 14 sacks and 27 QB hits last year. Alex Okafor is currently getting the nod for starting at left defensive end, but he has some good talent behind him in Breeland Speaks and Emmanuel Ogbah, so I expect to see some fight for a starting spot as the season progresses. Chris Jones will be starting at nose again this year. He had a breakout season in 2018, putting up an astounding 15.5 sacks which can be compared to his previous highest sack count of 6.5 in 2017. The starting D-line looks good, but the depth behind some positions (notably tackle and right defensive end) could get the Chiefs into trouble this year.

How does the RB position look for the Chiefs this year?

Kareem Hunt's departure from the Chiefs mid-season last year certainly put a damper on things. I believe it was the right move by the Chiefs to cut him, but there's no denying that he possessed skill at the RB position that they haven't since been able to replicate. Starting this year at RB will be Damien Williams. He's a 6-year back who in 50 attempts last year put up 256 yards, averaging 5.1 yards per attempt. Behind him is Carlos Hyde who averaged 3.3 yards per attempt playing for both the Browns and the Jaguars last year. Third in line is currently Darwin Thompson who the Chiefs drafted in the 6th round out of Utah State. In the Chiefs' first preseason game against the Bengals, Thompson averaged 4.4 yards per attempt through 5 runs.
