Anthony Hitchens released by Kansas City

Anthony Hitchens, the long-time Cheifs linebacker, has been released by the team after four years with the team.

Fantasy Impact

Hitchens, who only had one more year remaining on his current contract, will be a cap casualty for Kansas City. The Kansas City defense could look very different next year with Tyrann Mathieu, Jarran Reed, and Melvin Ingram among players already hitting free agency. It should be interesting to see how they navigate the cap with Mahomes' cap hit increasing soon.

Anthony Hitchens wrecks the Broncos on TNF

Anthony Hitchens was a force on TNF, recording five solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one TFL, two sacks, two QB hits, and a forced fumble in a 30-6 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Though Hitchens (and the rest of the defense) was able to dominate an offensively inept Denver team, these were only his first two sacks on the year. In fact, Hitchens' hadn't recorded a sack since the 2016 season in which he played for the Cowboys. Consider this as more of an anomalous blip until he establishes some consistency.
