Just about every big name fantasy football Web site is telling owners to avoid playing Kansas City players due to the Pittsburgh Steelers defense and the weak KC offensive line.
However, Pittsburgh defensive catalyst safety Troy Polamalu is out with an injury today and the Steelers defense is a different animal without Polamalu. The Steelers seem to miss his high intensity emotion when he's not in, resulting in less pressure on opposing QBs and more plays allowed in the secondary.
With Kansas City No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe suspended for four weeks, Chris Chambers becomes the No. 1 guy and this guy should excel. Receiver Mark Bradley also moves up the chain and becomes a solid No. 2 guy. Back Jamaal Charles might have some tough going, but where he should excel is catching the ball out of the backfield.
I have Chambers and Charles is various leagues and I am starting them with confidence. Bradley is not a must-start, but if you're desperate he could get you 10-12 points in point-per-reception leagues.
