Flowers was released by the Chiefs on Friday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Flowers was a stable presence at cornerback for the Chiefs over the past six seasons, but the team likely felt he wasn't worth the $5.25 million he was due as a base salary for the 2014 season. He'll enter the free-agent market as a good option for anyone in need of a cornerback. The Chiefs are left with Sean Smith, Sanders Commings and Chris Owens as their top three cornerback options heading into 2014.
Flowers left Saturday's game to be evaluated for a concussion, and he is questionable to return, NFL.com's Albert Breer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Flowers was down for a couple of minutes, so it won't be surprising if he's unable to return. The Chiefs are left with three healthy cornerbacks, and with the Colts in comeback mode, both Dunta Robinson and Marcus Cooper figure to see ample playing time alongside starter Sean Smith.
Flowers (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Playing in 15 games in 2012, Flowers turned in the worst tackle production of his career with only 48 total takedowns. With a growing reputation as one of the league's premier cornerbacks, Flowers does not have the ball thrown at him enough to generate the statistics that would warrant IDP use.

2012

Flowers can likely expect to see only a modest target volume now that Brandon Carr has left Kansas City, as the bull’s-eye on replacement Stanford Routt is bigger than the one on Carr or Flowers. Still, even if opposing quarterbacks prefer to target Routt, Flowers' excellent ball skills will let him make the most of the opportunities that do head his way. Give Flowers a boost if your league rewards passes defended, because he's about as good as anyone when it comes to that category – he has 70 in his four-year career despite missing four games, not to mention 13 interceptions (three returned for touchdowns) to help make up for his low tackle totals.

2011

Flowers has compiled at least 65 total tackles and two interceptions each of his three seasons. While his ceiling seems low as an IDP, so does his floor, making him a safe, yet unspectacular option.

2010

Despite battling shoulder woes for much of the year, Flowers finished the 2009 campaign with 65 tackles, five interceptions, 23 passes defended and two forced fumbles. In other words, he was one of the best fantasy cornerbacks available, and there's no reason to think he won't remain in CB1 territory this season. He's willing to throw his body around to rack up tackles, and he utilizes his great recovery speed and ball skills to post strong coverage stats. Although Kansas City's lack of team success holds him back from the spotlight, he deserves to be mentioned among the league's best young cornerbacks. Fortunately for fantasy owners, that lack of name recognition might work in your favor.

2009

In leagues that require starting cornerbacks, Flowers emerged as a useful option in his rookie campaign, finishing with 69 tackles and two interceptions. His skills were a nice fit for Herm Edwards' Cover-2 scheme, but Kansas City's defensive overhaul will have Flowers adjusting to a new system that may not be as conducive to his aggressiveness against the run. If he makes a smooth adjustment to the new defense, he should again be a useful IDP.

2008

The second-round pick is expected to win a starting cornerback position and should hold some IDP value as long as he is on the field.
