1. AFC West: Who is the rising star in this division?
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"Kelce is a matchup problem for opposing defenses. He's fast for a 260-pound player. He can get down the field to catch passes but also runs well after the catch, so he's a threat on underneath routes.
His presence is one reason the Chiefs weren't more aggressive about bringing in another wide receiver after signing Jeremy Maclin. Runner-up here goes to San Diego's rookie running back Melvin Gordon. He'll give the Chargers a rushing game they've lacked for years." READ MORE…

4. Will Shields has been a star in the Kansas City community for years
By Jim Gehman - NFL Player Engagement
"Raised in Oklahoma, you went to the University of Nebraska before being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993. Was it just fate that you were chosen by an NFL team based in the Midwest?
"I don't know about fate, but I think it worked out really well. It didn't matter where I played; I just think it was a chance for me to get an opportunity."
