The Kansas City Chiefs listed Brandon Flowers as questionable on the official injury report. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Kansas City Chiefs listed Brandon Flowers as questionable on the official injury report. The Chiefs take on the Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday and cannot afford to be without one of their top defensive players. Julio Jones has been unstoppable in the preseason, and a potentially depleted Chiefs secondary will not be able to slow him down. Safety Kendrick Lewis is also listed on the team's injury report. He's doubtful for Sunday's game and is a long shot to play.

Fantasy Impact: Despite Matt Ryan's struggles on the road in the past, the injuries in Kansas City could make Sunday a lucrative one for Atlanta's passing attack. Julio Jones gets an upgrade, and Ryan owners can feel safe starting him. Avoid the Chiefs defense at all costs if you decided to draft them.
