| Finding another wide receiver on the Kansas City roster beyond Tyreek Hill is a tough task, but if you find yourself in some weird situation where you have to pick a Chiefs wideout, consider Chris Conley. Conley is currently expected to start out wide opposite Hill and his production was more consistent than the other players on the roster. He caught multiple passes in all but three regular season games, which is surprisingly good considering the lack of overall pass attempts in the Chiefs offense. Despite those catches, Conley really never put it together with a great - or even particularly good fantasy game in 2016. He failed to score a single touchdown all year and his best overall game was a six catch, 60-yard performance against the Steelers in Week 4. While Conley isn't likely to blow anyone away with production, the opportunities are there for him to get an increased workload with Maclin now out of the picture. Conley has been seeing time as the team's "Z" receiver in OTAs and that could mean that he gets more opportunities to make plays down the field. He's been stuck as a possession receiver early in his career, but at 6'2" with a 4.35 forty yard dash, Conley's actual skillset would seem to be better fit as a downfield playmaker. While Hill is still by far the better overall fantasy option, it would not be all that surprising if Conley actually led the team in wide receiver catches in 2017.

Chiefs save $10 million in cap space

|The move, which came after the Chiefs wrapped up the second week of voluntary workouts, saves the Chiefs $10 million in cap space because Jeremy Maclin was cut after June 1; they had just $3.5 million available before. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Maclin is still just 29 years old and becomes a viable option for any WR-needy team. It's on odd move on the field considering the Chiefs have few veteran weapons at wide receiver. Tyreek Hill, Chris Conley and Albert Wilson make up the top three spots on depth chart.
