We look at the outlook for the AFC West, including some dynasty predictions.

This year, we're bringing you a new series covering each NFL division's dynasty fantasy football outlook. We'll bring you an overview of each team, highlight the best and worst positional groups, and make some cool predictions for the division as a whole. Let's jump into it!



Because of superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs are consistently among the most exciting teams in dynasty fantasy football.

He's scored at least 20 fantasy PPG every season as a starter and more than 25 fantasy PPG in three of those five seasons. However, despite Mahomes's excellence, the Chiefs have nothing but uncertainty on their offensive depth chart.

Of course, Travis Kelce is a stud and will remain the redraft TE1 for 2023. However, he's already 33 years old, turning 34 in October. Beyond Kelce, the Chiefs have zero proven offensive weapons on the roster, especially since they let JuJu Smith-Schuster walk in free agency. Someone will likely step up among Kadarius Toney, Rashee Rice, or Skyy Moore, but it's tough to say who that will be.

Additionally, the running back position isn't set either, as Isiah Pacheco doesn't contribute in the passing game, Jerick McKinnon is an aging veteran, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire is a bust. Interestingly, the Chiefs haven't had a fantasy RB1 since Kareem Hunt in 2018, and they haven't had a wide receiver finish in the top 24 (other than Tyreek Hill) in the entire Mahomes era. So while I love any offense led by Mahomes and coached by Andy Reid, this is one of the most uncertain sets of offensive weapons in the entire dynasty landscape.

I know it’s easier to say now but… Javonte is already practicing in full before August. Seems like he’s going to play a lot this year.
