Brandon Flowers is questionable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Brandon Flowers (heel) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for the opener against the Falcons.
Analysis: He'll be a game-time decision. This could be bad news for the Chiefs with the Falcons ready to fly in their new and improved vertical passing game. Brandon Flowers is their best cover corner, so Roddy White and Julio Jones will be licking their chops. As for the IDP, Eric Berry ranks number one in our rankings for this week and he should have to tackle quite a few pass catchers. Safety Kendrick Lewis (shoulder) is also doubtful for Sunday. Kansas City's D/ST has no business starting.
