2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

The Chiefs selected Ford with the 23rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He likely won’t be anything more than a pass-rushing specialist this season but he could eventually be the answer at lineback...

Dee Ford: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Ford signed with the Chiefs on Saturday, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The 23rd overall selection in the draft, Ford will serve as an off-the-bench pass rusher as a rookie, but will have a chance to displace Tamba Hali from the starting lineup in 2015. Unless he has DL eligibility in your fantasy league, he's unlikely to make an IDP impact in either season.
The Chiefs selected Ford in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 23rd overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This selection would seem to hint that the Chiefs don't necessarily think they'll keep Tamba Hali beyond 2014. Ford will provide depth so long as both Hali and Justin Houston are on the roster, but he's probably not good enough to threaten the playing time of either. With immediate impacts still on the board at receiver and defensive back, this seems like a dubious pick for Kansas City. They don't have a second-round pick.
Ford ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds at the Auburn pro day Tuesday, NFL.com reports.
