Matt Nagy re-joins Chiefs coaching staff

Matt Nagy is returning to Kansas City as a senior assistant/QB coach.

Fantasy Impact

It was announced earlier this week that Eric Bieniemy would be returning on a one-year deal as the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs, and former QB coach, Mike Kafka, left KC for the Giants OC job. Nagy, who was fired after four seasons in Chacago, will now work with Patrick Mahomes as the Chiefs QBs coach. The Chiefs finished the season sixth in points and fifth in total yardage in 2017, when Nagy was the team's OC. It is also worth noting that the Chiefs committed the leagues fewest offensive turnovers in 2017, the only category in which Patrick Mahomes has seen significant recent regression, so this hiring may have an especially positive effect, in that regard.

Eric Bieniemy returning on one-year deal

Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy will be returning to the team on a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Bieniemy has had another off-season of being a top head-coach candidate but not landing a job anywhere. The Chiefs play-caller has been a big part of their sustained success recently, and he will be back for at least one more season. This adds an extra layer of stability and security to all Chiefs offensive players in both dynasty and redraft leagues.

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST has a rough outing in Week 17

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST allows 34 points while recording four sacks in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs D/ST has been one of the better defenses down for the last two months, but they couldn't find an answer for Ja'Marr Chase on Sunday. The Bengals' rookie put the team on his shoulders in Week 17 as he caught 11 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns.

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST shuts down the Steelers in Week 16

The Kansas City Chiefs D/ST allows 10 points while recording two sacks, one interception, and two fumble recoveries in Sunday's win over the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs D/ST dominated the Steelers on Sunday on its way to a blowout victory. They have now scored double-digit fantasy points in 7-of-8 games and are a must-start in all formats.

Kansas City Chiefs D/ST has solid showing on Thursday Night Football

Kansas City Chiefs D/ST allows 28 points while recording one interception and one fumble recovery in Week 15's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

They may not have been great for fantasy, but the Chiefs D/ST was excellent on Thursday night. The scoreboard may tell a different story, but this defense had three stops on downs (two inside their own five-yard line) and a forced fumble and recovery on the goal line. With their best player Chris Jones sidelined due to COVID, they single-handedly kept the offense in the game. They continue to be a must-own, must-start D/ST moving forward.
