Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce were major disappointments for fantasy owners in Sunday's 38-28 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. But everyone needs to calm down!


Most of their success was nullified due to the Tyreek Hill one-man extravaganza, as the wideout notched 179 total yards on his first three touches of the game. He finished the game with seven receptions for 169 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to the 91-yard punt return TD before KC's offense even touched the ball. In total, Hill finished with 268 all-purpose yards -- kind of hard for anyone else to have a relevant day with those numbers drying up the well. 


But it's not like Hunt and Kelce didn't have opportunities to hit pay dirt. These were some of the finer vulture jobs from Kansas City.

And two:

Yep, Hunt fantasy owners could have easily started a support group after those two heartbreakers. 

Looking ahead to next week's matchup on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers, it appears like Hunt has a much better chance to rebound than Kelce. 


The Steelers allowed 177 yards rushing yards in the opener -- 77 of those came from Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor -- but they ranked 27th in the NFL during the 2017 season in yards allowed per carry.


Kelce is way too talented to give up on at any point during this season, but he could struggle once again as the Steelers held Browns tight end David Njoku to three catches on seven targets for 13 yards. In 2017, the Steelers ranked ninth in receptions allowed and first in touchdowns allowed to the tight end position.
