2K20: Game #2 - Kansas City at Los Angeles Chargers

Recommended Posts

The Chargers have a stout defense and a great pass rush. The offense is without Philip Rivers for the first time in over a decade. Longtime back up and three year Bills starter Tyrod Taylor is the replacement behind center.

The opening betting line is Chiefs +8.5 on the road. That is certainly possible, but I would not bet with confidence. The Chiefs face a really good defense, playing at home.

Will be interesting to see how the offense adjusts.    Chargers played our offense very well last year, albeit we were never 100% healthy.  
 

Will be interesting to see if the play quarters,   Wondering if they trust Robinson a bit more on the underneath stuff (Hardmans low snap count week 1),  or if they were just showcasing Robinson in primetime.   
 

I see another successful week for Clyde if defenses keep putting focus on controlling our deep ball.

The team has released an updated depth chart. https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/lists/kansas-city-chiefs-updated-depth-chart-week-2/

No transactions have been made for injured players, so the rotation at C and CB should be viewed accordingly. It is interesting Allegretti rates higher at OG than at C.

Pos. First Second Third Fourth
QB Patrick Mahomes Chad Henne    
RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire Darrel Williams Darwin Thompson  
FB Anthony Sherman      
WR Tyreek Hill Mecole Hardman Marcus Kemp  
WR Sammy Watkins Demarcus Robinson Byron Pringle

LT Eric Fisher Mike Remmers    
LG Kelechi Osemele Nick Allegretti

RG Andrew Wylie Yasir Durant    
RT Mitchell Schwartz Mike Remmers  

 

Pos. First Second Third
LDE Tanoh Kpassagnon Alex Okafor Mike Danna

Is this crazy to think Sammy Watkins is going have a great year 

 

a new Sammy Watkins? More then a week 1 fluke? I know most people are saying Sammy is just a week 1 fluke, but will this be his year

- another very good week 1

- wr 2 on a pass heavy KC team. Which is by far the best offense in the NFL

- look at his playoff run. 2nd, AFC, Super Bowl was a stud

- has chemistry with Mahomes - hardman wasn’t used much week 1 after Reid had awhile to gameplan week 1

- Hill is more of a big play then target monster

This may be a new Sammy, because he balled out to help Chiefs win a super bowl.

If he stays healthy and motivated,  for sure can have a big year.

No questioning the talent,  but there's always games where it just looks like he's going through the motions.

Staying healthy has always been the issue for Watkins. The chemistry he has with Mahomes is amazing. The inside-out route he ran on Richard Sherman is great, but it comes to nothing if PM II doesn't drop the dime. 

Still, double him all game and you can slow him down.

Thursday injury list:

Player Injury Participation*
DT Khalen Saunders Elbow DNP
DE Alex Okafor Hamstring DNP
CB Charvarius Ward Hand DNP
C Austin Reiter Knee FP
OG Kelechi Osemele Ankle FP
DT Derrick Nnadi Ankle FP
DB Juan Thornhill Knee FP
RB Darrel Williams Hamstring FP

 

Player Injury Participation*
DE Joey Bosa Triceps LP
RB Justin Jackson Quad DNP
TE Donald Parham Illness DNP
RG Trai Turner Knee FP
CB Casey Heyward Knee FP
WR Mike Williams Shoulder FP

 

With Saunders out for what appears to be a month at least, Turk Wharton may be getting more snaps. Watch the interception. That was Wharton blocking downfield for Sneed. Both these guys can haul assets.

Update: All three of the Chiefs players are officially out. Justin Jackson is doubtful. All others are full participants in practice.

I’m surprised we haven’t IRd Saunders for three weeks, he may be coming back sooner if that’s the case

They may want to wait for the game outcome.

Pennel is back for game three. If they wanted to make a move it would likely be for a DB. Pickings are thin.

Hoyett was the only restricted player on the PS, so this makes sense. With Pennel and Breeland coming back, on a known schedule, the team probably wants to avoid bringing in an outside player. It begs the question, who gets dropped when Pennel gets activated.

This is going to be brutal if they can't remember how to tackle a RB out of the flat. That's all they have right now.

Okay, at least Jones and Clark remember how to tackle.
