Davante Adams is still a mid-range WR1 with Jordan Love under center.

Adams had already proven himself to be "QB proof" in 2019 when he posted the WR5 overall score in Weeks 9-14 when Brett Hundley filled in for the injured Aaron Rodgers.

Love is still a fairly raw prospect, but he's an upgrade over 2019 Brett Hundley.

Start Chiefs RB Derrick Gore In Fantasy?

by Sean Koerner

Derrick Gore is more of a nuisance to Darrel Williams than he is a standalone fantasy play.

Gore broke out with 11 carries for 48 yards and a touchdown on Monday Night Football last week. However, most of that production came on a single drive in the second quarter. He rushed twice for zero yards in the second half, making it clear that Darrel Williams is still the lead back in Kansas City.

That said, Williams is now a risky low-end RB2 option considering the Chiefs could go with the "hot hand" approach until Clyde Edwards-Helaire can return from Injured Reserve.
