RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Phillip Gaines.
Gaines entered 2016 as the starter opposite Marcus Peters but battled knee injuries throughout the season. He’s back in the fold ahead of 2017 and has practiced with the first team behind Peters and Steven Nelson. The move down the depth chart could result in reduced snaps in 2017 and a corresponding dip in production.
Was expected to be the favorite for the starting cornerback job opposite Marcus Peters in 2016 but has been passed on the depth chart by Steven Nelson. Could still earn the job but also may wind up seeing action in just nickel and dime packages.
Gaines started five games and played in 13 for the Chiefs last season, totaling 20 tackles (all solo) and four passes defensed. He enters 2015 as a candidate to start at cornerback opposite Sean Smith, but he'll have to hold off 2015 first-round pick Marcus Peters to do so.
Drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Gaines enters camp with an opportunity to earn playing time in the Chiefs' secondary. With cornerback Brandon Flowers released and Sean Smith having off-the-field issues, Gaines should get an opportunity to compete, however, at this point, his main contribution this season will likely come on special teams.
