Two weeks into the 2009 NFL season one division has clearly separated itself from all the rest; the AFC West is officially the worst division in the league. With just one proven NFL quarterback and a bunch of inexperienced or injury-prone running backs, the AFC West provides very little fantasy fire-power, with the vast majority coming from the Chargers. Week three will be a big one as San Diego looks to rebound from a tough home loss to Baltimore, Denver tries to continue taking advantage of soft opponents, Oakland will get a chance to build on last week's divisional win, and the Chiefs, well lets just say if you own a Chief other than Dwayne Bowe you should drop them immediately.
Will Brandon Marshall get back to his playmaking ways?
Kansas City @ Philadelphia - Will Donovan McNabb play this week, or will it be Kevin Kolb? If its Kolb, who's number two, Vick or Garcia? Well, quite simply, even if DeSean Jackson took every snap from the wildcat the Eagles would have no problem beating the Chiefs. With all the money and draft picks KC gave up for Matt Cassel, he is the second best QB on the team. Whether or not management will allow their big offseason pickup to be benched, perennial ER visitor Brodie Croyle outplayed Cassel throughout the preseason and looked much better in the opener versus the Ravens than Cassel did against the Raiders. You can argue all day whether Larry Johnson is washed up or if KC's O-line just isn't opening holes, either way the Chiefs running game will not be taking any pressure off of the passing game any time soon. Dwayne Bowe is easily the best offensive player for the Chiefs so he will be targeted constantly, but I just don't think KC sniffs the end zone this week.
Matt Cassel - 225 passing yards, 0 TD 3 INTs
Larry Johnson - 50 total yards
Dwayne Bowe - 5 receptions 70 yards
Final Score - Philadelphia 35, Kansas City 3
