2019 Fantasy Outlook
Considered the goat (not the G.O.A.T.) of the AFC Championship Game for his costly offsides penalty, Ford found himself exiled from Kansas City and moved to the west coast in exchange for a second-round pick. The 28-year-old is a proven pass rusher, totaling 23 sacks over his last two full seasons as a starter. Ford couldn't have landed in a better situation, as he'll line up opposite second overall pick Nick Bosa to ensure that offenses can't slant protection to either side. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
2014
Coming off a career-best 10 sacks in 2016, Ford was limited to just six games for the Chiefs last season due to a back injury. Following Tamba Hali's release, Ford is expected to see the vast majority of snaps opposite Justin Houston this season.
With Justin Houston (knee) sidelined for an indefinite amount of time, Ford figures to latch on to the starting outside linebacker role opposite Tamba Hali. A 2014 first-round selection, Ford has failed to live up to his billing through his first two campaign. The third-year linebacker says he’s begun working smarter rather than overtraining to prepare himself for the primary role.
Ford's rookie season in 2014 didn't go as planned, as the first-round pick didn't start a single game. He totaled just eight tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks for the season, and with Tamba Hali and Justin Houston still on the roster for 2015, he'll likely serve in a backup role once again.
The Chiefs selected Ford with the 23rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He likely won’t be anything more than a pass-rushing specialist this season but he could eventually be the answer at linebacker if the Chiefs fail to re-sign Tamba Hali after this season. Ford is an explosive edge-rusher but he lacks the necessary cover skills to be an every-down player at this point in his career.
