Chiefs HC Andy Reid hints at resting starters in Week 17

Some fantasy football leagues will decide its champion in Week 17. If you are in one of those leagues, sorry, but the Kansas City Chiefs don't care. The 11-4 Chiefs are locked into the No. 5 spot in the AFC playoffs and have absolutely nothing to play for this Sunday in San Diego. Head coach Andy Reid didn't say Monday that he will indeed sit his starters for the game, but did say he's had some success in the past doing it.

Fantasy Analysis:

Thus, Jamaal Charles @jcharles25 owners are probably going to be without the game's most productive running back for the finale. Knile Davis @BoobieKnile_Era is his backup. This is why no fantasy leagues should extend past Week 16. Alex Smith may also be replaced by Chase Daniel @ChaseDaniel, and Dwayne Bowe @DwayneBowe82 and Donnie Avery could cede their snaps to Junior Hemingway @YoungHemi21 and A.J. Jenkins @17AJJenkins.

Then why is Jamaal still in your Top 10 rankings ? Shouldn't he be at 25-ish ?
