Fantasy spin: Chiefs sign WR Engram

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to add more weapons to their offense, agreeing to terms with veteran wideout Bobby Engram on Tuesday.

The Penn State product doesn’t have a ton of fantasy value at the extended age of 36, but his presence does alter the value of Matt Cassel and Mark Bradley. Cassel, acquired from the Patriots last month, now has another reliable option in the passing game.

Engram, who posted 47 receptions in 13 games for the Seahawks last season, is a nice possession receiver and will fit right into the slot in coach Todd Haley’s pass-laden offense. If he can avoid injuries, Engram could post 50-plus receptions as Cassel’s security blanket.

That scenario would have a negative effect on the value of Bradley,who seems destined to see fewer targets.

With Cassel at the helm, Dwayne Bowe, Bradley and Engram at wide receiver and a Hall of Fame caliber tight end in Tony Gonzalez, the Chiefs offense is setting up to be one of the better units in the NFL.
