Chiefs coach Andy Reid said they have considered not using Harrison Butker for all kickoffs and instead using a player like safety Justin Reid. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This would be because of the new kickoff rules. Special teams coordinator Dave Toub said the new kickoff rule has kickers more involved in tackles, and they don't want that for Butker.

Fantasy Impact: Brown signed a one-year deal in the offseason with the Chiefs. His immediate role in the Chiefs offense could be dependent on if Rashee Rice faces a suspension to open the season. Rice is practicing for now with the team.

Fantasy Impact: While Rice avoids being charged with this crime, he still faces charges for his involvement with a fiery car crash in late March. His involvement in the crash will likely lead to a multi-game suspension, but the assault will not contribute to Rice's legal proceedings.
