Kansas City does have a great fantasy defense, but mostly because they force loads of turnovers. The Chiefs give up plenty of yards and TDs so don't be scared off by this matchup.The Rams get after the quarterback and Palmer as taken as many sacks as almost every QB in the league and is a turnover machine so it's best to avoid him in this matchup.
