Chiefs beat writer Adam Teicher was asked about WR Donnie Avery's roster spot.

"At this point, I think the Chiefs will keep starting wide receiver Donnie Avery. He's fast and while he didn't have a big first season for the Chiefs in 2013, his production was more or less in line with what he'd done earlier in the season. Keep in mind that as far as proven players at wide receiver, the Chiefs have Avery and Dwayne Bowe and that's it. That said, let's see how Josh Wilson and Frankie Hammond Jr. do in the preseason. The Chiefs could make that move if either Wilson or Hammond proves capable."

Fantasy Impact: 

It's not really a positive answer about Avery. It seems like the Chiefs are just buying some time until one of their younger guys develop, but Teicher doesn't seem optimistic that will happen this year. Avery is ranked just 77th on our list, and isn't getting drafted in typical leagues.
