Jason Avant leads Chiefs in receiving

Jason Avant caught four passes for 69 yards on five targets in Kansas City's 27-20 loss to New England.

Fantasy Impact

Surprisingly, Avant was the Chiefs receiver who most benefited from Jeremy Maclin's injury. While Avant made some nice plays, it's likely he won't be a huge part of Kansas City's offense in 2016.

Jason Avant winning over Chiefs

The Chief's players and coaches have been singing Jason Avant's praises lately and Smith has admitted he already as a degree of trust in Avant.

Fantasy Impact

This is nothing but good news for Avant's snap count, but he still remains behind both Dwayne Bowe and Albert Wilson on the depth chart. This week is a favorable match up against the Steelers but regardless of what the coaches say, if Avant isn't starting for the Chiefs there's no way he's starting for your fantasy team.

Avant sees decrease in snaps; increase in production

Avant had five catches for 64 yards Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Avant was the Chief's leading WR despite playing only 48 percent of snaps vs. 69 percent last week. It's obvious that Avant is the third option at the position, only coming in on obvious passing downs, but Smith seems to be building some chemistry with his new, big bodied target. Still, Avant and the other Chief's receivers should remain on the waiver wire. Their targets are inconsistent and their ceilings are limited by the system they play in.

Jason Avant held in check in Chief's debut

Jason Avant had 30 yards on two catches in his debut with the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

While Avant actually led all Chief's receivers in total yards, he still remains unownable in all formats for the foreseeable future. His unfamiliarity with the system as well as the return of Donnie Avery limited his snap count early and at this point there's no Chief's receiver you can trust, let alone the new guy.

Chiefs claim Jason Avant off waivers

On Friday the Chiefs signed Jason Avant to help replace A.J. Jenkins, who was placed on injured reserve the same day. Avant was recently cut by the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Avant played under Andy Reid while in Philadelphia so he should be able to get acquainted into the offense faster than most. Avant will provide a slight upgrade in size to the wide receiver position for the Chiefs over Donnie Avery, who's been sidelined with a groin injury since week 4. Expect to see Avant on the field for the Chiefs in their Week 13 Sunday Night showdown with the Broncos next week, but don't expect an immediate impact in the stat sheet. Keep an eye on how he's utilized and how his presence impacts the offense before making a move. Avant had 21 catches for 201 yards before being released by the Panthers.
