Kansas City D/ST delivers two touchdowns in blowout win over Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST dominated the Denver Broncos in a 43-16 win, registering two interceptions, two fumbles, three sacks, a kick return for a touchdown, and an interception return for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs D/ST caused Melvin Gordon III to lose two fumbles while picking off Drew Lock twice (one for a touchdown) while keeping him under pressure all game. WR Byron Pringle added to the beat down, running for a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Fantasy managers who played the Chiefs D/ST were rewarded with 24 points (using standard defensive settings) and will get another highly favorable matchup next week against the New York Jets.

Kansas City Chiefs D/ST stifles Josh Allen, gets INT in win over Bills

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST held up well against the Bills, getting one interception, four pass deflections, three tackles for loss, and a five QB hits in a 26-17 win over the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

The KC D/ST surprised many by being only the second team to contain Josh Allen and the Bills explosive offense. The Chiefs' defense made it difficult for Allen to complete throws, only coming to life until late in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs did not register a sack, but they'll have an easier matchup next week against Drew Lock and the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs D/ST registers a sack and INT in loss to Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST did little to stop the Raiders on Sunday only notching one sack along with an interception on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Coming off their best defensive outing of the season, the Chiefs defense weren't at their best, giving up close to 500 yards of offense to the Raiders, 140 of which were on the ground. The Chiefs D/ST will have their work cut out for them heading into a Week 6 matchup against the Bills on Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs D/ST dominate Patriots on MNF

The Kansas City D/ST amassed three interceptions, one fumble, and two sacks while holding the Patriots to a season-low 10 points on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs D/ST picked off Brian Hoyer once and Jarrett Stidham twice in the lopsided victory. The second interception led to a pick-six by KC safety Tyrann Mathieu late in the fourth quarter to help the Chiefs seal the win. The Chiefs face the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5 in what could be another streaming opportunity given the Raiders defense does not force turnovers and will have trouble keeping up with KC's offense.

Kansas City Chiefs have no more positives, game likely to be played Monday

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cheifs' latest round of point of care COVID-19 tests are clear.

Fantasy Impact

This is great news for the chances of Chiefs-Patriots playing on Monday night as New England's tests also came back clear. Hopefully we get official word on the status of this game before lineup lock at 1 PM EST.
