There aren’t a lot of issues with this roster, but finding a solid No. 2 receiver behind star Dwayne Bowe is a focal point of this camp. Free-agent pickup Donnie Avery will likely be the guy, and he has shown he can be a capable NFL player. He can get open.
In a generally optimistic piece about the Chiefs’ 2013 prospects, Bill Williamson suggests that Donnie Avery will be Kansas City’s #2 WR this year.
Although we’ve noted before that Donnie Avery was an inefficient receiver in Indianapolis, he was more efficient last year than Jonathan Baldwin. And over his career, he boasts better receptions/game and yards/game rates than Baldwin.
I took a long look at likely 2013 production for Chiefs’ receivers in this piece. If Avery does manage to become the Chiefs’ second leading receiver, he’d finish around WR32 in PPR formats. According to Fantasy Pros, he’s basically undrafted, making him a worthwhile waiver wire target.
