The third-round rookie running back from the University of Toledo already has six touchdowns - more than any Kansas City running back had all of past year and as many as any rookie through his first three games in history. He added five receptions for 98 yards and two more scores.
As a junior, he failed to eclipse 1,000 yards rushing and caught only 11 passes.
Oh, and Madden predicted that Philip Rivers wouldn't throw any picks.
This game comes against a highly-rated Redskins run defense, and the Chiefs could potentially be without Eric Fisher. As always, I'll be riding with you with the Get More Sports live blog right here on the site. It's hard to win in fantasy when your quarterback puts up eight points.
Washington has had an impressive last two weeks, and their defense is really coming into form. You need Josh Norman to take Tyreek Hill completely out of the game. Smith has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his last 10 games. If he's on your roster, Crabtree should be headed for the bench, his matchup this week is the Denver Broncos, and All-Pro cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. They will be facing a tough Redskins defense on Monday, but they look unstoppable early. Combining vision with power, Hunt also maximizes his carries and fights for extra yards. That's averaging 25 yards per catch. The Chiefs rank 18th in yards per carry and 20th in rushing yards per game.
Already it's come to this for Kareem Hunt, breakout superstar of the young National Football League season: he's defending his latest long touchdown run.
Louisville Puts Pitino and Athletic Director on Leave
Pitino and athletic director Tom Jurich were placed on leave following brief face-to-face meetings with Postel on Wednesday. Louisville, which is under FBI investigation, is among the schools caught in the case that has quaked college basketball .
One challenge that Greg Manusky and the defense face is how to deal with Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce. In 2005, Cadillac Williams notched 434 yards from scrimmage in his first three games but would end his career with only 5,040 yards across six seasons. All he's done since then is go over 1,000 yards each of the past two seasons, at age 32 and 33, respectively.
The running back was limited in practices throughout the week but said he's been testing the injury a little bit more this week. Last week he led the team in tackles.
The potential loss of Fisher could substantially shake up the offensive line. So he is already doing his part to make sure he can handle it. Manusky's efforts were a constant topic on the NBC Sunday Night Football broadcast and his efforts were lauded by various media outlets and NFL analysts in the aftermath of the win. But there are also plenty of players who would prove to be flukes. The rookie RB out of Toledo has become one of the best stories of the year through three weeks.
When talking about the elite, good and great quarterbacks in the NFL, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is hardly mentioned. The offense is now capable of making big plays down the field while the defense is spectacular as usual. The Steelers play in Baltimore against the Ravens on Sunday, a team flat out embarrassed by the Jaguars, losing 44-7. As a former first round pick, the Chiefs now have a choice to keep him at the more expensive price for next season or let him walk as a free agent.
Amari Cooper, WR, Oakland Raiders - Amari Cooper's start to the season has been something to forget. The next game it resulted from having a lead and throwing the ball well, the sort of recipe they'd love every week. "I just want to keep it going". There he has an abundance of room to work with and can easily get open. That seems to be the mantra with the Titans backfield this year. Bench Murray at all costs this weekend.
The number of injuries piling up for KC is becoming very concerning. The first was Week 1 against New England and the second was last week against the Chargers. Foster said he suffered a similar injury during his fourth season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
