Kansas City Chiefs likely to rest some key starters

The Kansas City Chiefs have secured a spot in the postseason, which means their Week 17 match up against the division rival San Diego Chiefs is meaningless. Instead of running all of their starters out in a meaningless game and risking injuries that could hurt their chances of making a playoff run, they will be installing a game plan that will keep some of their top players risk of an injury at a minimum.

According to head coach Andy Reid’s plan, the team could play the starters for a series or two before placing their back ups into the line up.

“We’ll mix and match. I’m going to work some guys in,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “Most of them have already worked in. … I talked to the team, and I will have it figured out by the end of the week exactly how I’m going to work it.”

Unfortunately for the fantasy football owners that are relying on Jamaal Charles to continue carrying the team, you will need to look at a new option.
